He's a core piece moving forward. This proposal was DOA for the Pens.
Not just this proposal, but others...

I think the Pens winger situation gets exaggerated. The Pens aren't that desperate for a winger that Sutter will get traded, at least not for Hemsky. Meeting a need doesn't mean being stupid in the process.
