Unless Niskanen is dealt in a separate deal to land a top six winger, I don't see the point of adding Streit to our blueline. He's been really bad defensively for much of the past two seasons. Do we really need a PP specialist, at the expense of having to sit more physical guys like Despres, Engelland, or Bortuzzo?

And if the Pens are targeting a winger on the Isles, I'd rather see them try and land either Okposo or Bailey. I think both would fit better in the Pens' system than Grabner (who I'm not all that high on, admittedly).

I know Okposo's been hot garbage this year, but I think he's still young enough to be a solid contributor. Him being a RH shot is just an added bonus.

And I'm still high on Bailey. I think if he is played with a bit more talent (ie. him taking the LW spot on the Malkin/Neal line), you'll see him flourish.
