As a Pens fan, I can't imagine why they would. Shero was adamant about targeting Sutter because he could replace many of the things Staal did defensively, and he's always been a proponent of depth down the middle. Further, the Pens should be looking to become harder to play against after the last playoff series, not easier. Trading their most prolific hitter doesn't accomplish that.

Ryan would be great on the Pens, but not at that price. I'd be happier signing Ray Whitney to a short-term deal for Ryan money.

I suggested a trade involving a couple of our high-end defense prospects and roster player, but it got shot down pretty quickly. Outside of that kind of swap, I don't see much room for a deal here. The Ducks will just have to try to find another suitor who's willing to give up a young center with legit scoring center upside - it'll be interesting to see if they find one.
