if their defense doesn't suffer from it, i'd do it in a heartbeat and wouldn't think twice. i REALLY like what Despres can do, but with Morrow, Harrington, Dumoulin, Pouliot, and Maatta waiting for their shots, Despres is very expendable even if he's the most NHL-ready prospect they have right now.
Luckily, the Pens have no injuries on the blueline.
