I think that mid level prospect could be Casey-Pierro Zabotel. Talbot could be a fit for Florida, but I honestly don't see him signing there.
Yeah I agree about Jurco, I mean I think Saad would fit this team more, Jurco is a good winger I just don't shero picking him. Ray Shero passed up on Matt Puempel who was possibly the purest scoring winger in the draft. I don't think Shero is looking for a guy like Jurco. Brandon Saad on the other hand has good size, strength, plays good two way hockey, and would probably be more motivated to play for his hometown team.
I know a lot of Pens fans want Saad because he is from Pittsburgh, and to be honest I did too at one point, but there is more to it now, he is the best available according to Bob (McKenzie?) He is a good defensive forward who can help offensively (like Kunitz).
Well it looks like Blues fans aren't interested.
How about Edmonton or Florida if Saad is still available?
Maybe I could even add another pick/prospect for leverage but not any in the early rounds or mid to high level prospects. maybe a 7th either in 2011 or 2012 or an unsigned prospect from 2009 or 2010.
