It is hard to acquire top end talent in free agency without having to overpay. I don't know what the PENS needs are. What I do know is they have had little success drafting forwards in later rounds in recent years like the majority of teams. NHL scouting has become better than ever and its becoming more and more difficult to uncover the late round gem.
This is why I understand the OP feelings. I really don't think the Penquins would be wise to sell the farm for UFA's and aging but talented vets.
Perhaps the Pens could try for Dustin Penner or Simone Gagner from the Kings.
There has been talk about Victor Stallberg and Sam Gagner (C)
I could see the Leafs selling at the deadline but asking for way too much.
Its going to be slim pickings this year because of the condensed 48 game schedule.
Could Semin be a viable option?
Im sure the PENS could get Leino for cheap.
WHat would the PEns trade for Keith Aucoin or Josh Bailey?
