Pens only need to make one move for a winger and hope Kunitz and Malkin get their collective heads out of their *****. You get a winger for Crosby, one moves down and everything falls into place. I certainly don't want that winger to be a failed prospect, a guy who hasn't amounted to anything in four years, a change of scenery guy, a guy that was a 30-goal scorer last year, but sucked three out of the previous four years and stole money from his clubs, a guy that was a 30-goal scorer, but struggles to get 35 points, a soft Slovak, or a guy named Stempy. I would prefer a long term solution, or in the case of Iggy, a difference maker looking to go out in glory.
You don't mortgage the farm with two deals. If you have to go a first, one of our d-prospects and a third rounder, then so be it. Our farm system is stacked, but flawed in the same matter. Only two of the top 10 are forwards; no goalies are on that list and eight blueliners. At some point, we need to address the forward prospects in the system, or the lack there of.
