Clowe has only topped the 20+ goal mark twice in his career, if I am going to move a stud young defenseman, a 2nd rounder and a meh player (Lovejoy), it's going to be for a more consistent goal scorer. I mean as it stands, he has 1 more 20 goal season than Tyler Kennedy. TK is faster, younger, and cheaper and a better defensive player.

I'd rather take my chances with what this team has, than get 2 impending UFA's that might not stick around. Given this team's cap structure, Shero isn't going to pay them their worth either, these guys know that. They'll go to the highest bidder and it's not always a guarantee that players will take a little less to sign with the Pens long term, anymore, either.
