Orpik and Martin have played like a true top pairing. Don't touch it. Letang has been our worst top 4 D so far this year. We're fine.
Add a vet to the bottom pairing if you wish. But I don't see the need there either.
Based on what? A few games into the regular season?
What are you talking about? We can win in the regular season with what we have so we should do that. Giving Despres time in the NHL will only up his trade value later in the season.
Pens need to win the division, preferably getting the first or second seed. Don't want to play a team like the Flyers or Rangers in the first round again. Trading for a top 4 defenseman sooner rather than later would help them reach that goal of winning the division.
