PIT does it to give crosby a playmaker at wing (pommer) and to give malkin a terrific option to set up (vanek). plus letestu/talbot can pick up the slack for the loss of staal


BUF does it because they may want the long term cap relief by getting those two big contracts off their books. Staal immediately replaces connolly when he hits UFA. Orpik would severely upgrade the sabres Defense and would look great next to myers. Kunitz comes in and can help make up for the production that is lost and if this experiment doesnt work out then he hits UFA after 2011. And Dupuis is a solid player with an expiring contract.

**And if the rumors about parise being unhappy in Jersey are true, then Buffalo will have some great cap room to make a pitch for him....maybe...just a thought**

Pittsburgh gets two wingers to help their franchise players

Buffalo gets long term cap relief, a young stud at center to replace connolly, a rock at defense, and two solid role players who contribute secondary scoring.

Go easy on it guys. I know vanek just had a great game tonight.... it was just an idea. Hope it's not awful
