Why? Worst thing that can happen is Stempniak is a good 3rd liner whose paid accordingly.. Best thing would be Crosby getting a RW who can score 20-25 on a good contract..

Tanner Glass is playing on the 3rd line tonight... Tangradi isn't ready for the NHL from what I've seen. This deal improves Pittsburgh's depth on the wing while potentially receiving a winger for Crosby... If Stempniak gets hot at the right time, this deal could pay off huge..

Every trade is a gamble. This one is worth that gamble for Pittsburgh in my opinion. That second round pick isn't helping win a cup any time soon.
