Not seeing how this scenario is any different than the Kovalev deal, aside from the fact that Ottawa really needs a defenseman.
Trading either guy for Sarge is bad asset management, IMO.
Letang, Martin, Niskanen, Orpik, Bortuzzo, Strait, Engelland should be the 7. Not seeing why the Pens should really trade for the guy at this point, as it makes more sense to play Strait and Bortuzzo, and then maybe flip them after they prove themselves a little more, which I think they undoubtedly will.
I think it'd be smart to make a move for a stop gap veteran Defenseman to Pitt. Give the young guys some more time to develop and improve
