One will make the Pens this year, and one will likely be dealt or waived. People are divided as to which is the better bet. Either way, they'd be suitable options to replace Fistric in bottom-pair duty.
So maybe something like Morrow + Fistric for Blueger + Bortuzzo + pick (like a 3rd rounder to balance out the fact you're getting 2 proven NHLers and Fistric is the better D) ?
