Secondly, where is he wrong?
You keep saying that Tyler Kennedy can be a top-6 forward, when the truth is that he's an above average 3rd liner. His career high is 45 points. That only happened once, when he was getting tons of prime ice-time due to injuries. He's not a 3rd liner. I don't care if he scored 20 goals once. So did Michal Handzus. You're not going to convince anyone that Kennedy is a suitable second liner.
You also insist that Dustin Jeffery would be a great #3C for the Sharks, when he hasn't done much of anything to show that. He's had a couple of nice seasons in the NHL, but if he's such a great #3C on a playoff team, we'll add to Clowe to get Sutter and you can use Jeffery. It isn't worth trading Ryane Clowe for Dustin Jeffery when we have James Sheppard (go on laugh it up, but he's been great) who could fill the same kind of role we'd ask of Jeffery without us downgrading Clowe to Kennedy.
You insist that he hasn't "done his homework" because he insists on Sutter. He has every right to do that. Clowe for Sutter is a much better deal valuewise than Kennedy and Jeffery for Clowe.
If you think there isn't much of a gap between Clowe and Kennedy, then why don't you use Kennedy in your top-6?
Not sure who you're directing this post to since it's replying to my comment in a way, but then again, I didn't say anything of the above.
I agree with this post. I don't agree with the other poster. His posts didn't have much truth to them, or substance for that matter.
To be honest...a lot of Pens fans on this forum have this hard-on for finding "Sid's winger"/power forward rental. The former is still a priority, don't get me wrong, but it's not what we need
year. We have a much larger hole in the top-4. Murray and/or Clowe wouldn't help this team that much. So keep them.
People can stat watch or make their own judgements about Tangradi, but the fact is, he has a great opportunity to become a fixture in the Pens lineup and become exactly what Clowe is...only with better speed and grit.
There isn't much here to be honest.
SJ/Pens fans want a TK-Murray swap. Why? That does nothing but weaken the Pens checking line and we have Bortuzzo, Strait and Engelland that play a similar role to Murray's.
Pens fans want Clowe. Why? The problem isn't putting the puck in the net, and Clowe won't become a permanent fixture of Sid's wing. Though I wouldn't turn him down coming to this team for a Cup run.
IDK why trade proposals keep popping up here with Kennedy and Lovejoy. The latter is trash and is likely to get waived. Kennedy has way more value to the Pens 3rd line. What we do have are very, very....very valuable defensive prospects. That's Shero's biggest trading piece, not TK, Lovejoy and Jeffrey. Although, Jeffrey is being underrated in this thread.
