Sharks are a contender also, unless they are getting a guy that helps them big time in their top 6 or is a stud bottom 6 guy that makes it ok to lose Clowe, why would they make that deal to begin with?

This is a move you make in the summer, if the Pens really want him, they'll trade the Sharks some late pick and a lesser prospect for his negotiating rights and lock him up. Doing it now, giving up assets and having the potential disaster of him leaving and show nothing for that trade after, is pointless. Yeah the team has a glut of stud young defensemen, but you don't just discard them for rentals.

This next summer, Shero has to lock up Malkin and Letang and for once, having some cap space might do the team some good, there are some pretty intriguing guys that are Free Agents next summer. Perry for one.

Want to throw away Despres for a rental or wait until the summer, use the cap space to get Perry to add TO the roster and still have Despres?

You never know.
