Despres won't be moved. It was a nice thought until Niskanen went down in Ottowa and ENGELLAND/LOVEJOY had to log more than 6 minutes of game time. The number of minutes the top 4 defensemen are seeing right now will not be able to hold up throughout this rapid schedule due to the abbreviated season. The Pens will need to rely on Despres and Bortuzzo down the stretch.

Demoulin is the only guy who MIGHT be moved (most likely not) and Pouliot is out of the question. Let's get back down to reality here. The Penguins trading away a defenseman = personnel suicide.
