Since Despres has been playing as well as he has for you guys, I can see the hesitation however.
I think if you put up a poll on the Pens board on whether or not we'd be willing to give up Despres for Seto you'd find there wouldn't be many takers.

[b]You also have Maatta and Morrow plus a couple others, but those three would be the only interesting ones. I know Morrow is your top d prospect, and the cost for him might be too high for us, but Maatta should be had for a fair value at least.

You have a glut of potential d. You could move 1 without hurting your prospect pool. You also need forwards. The Wild have too many forwards fighting for the same space right now. This is what makes us potential trading partners.

Maatta, trade-wise holds the least value for you guys of those three. He would also be the easiest for you to part with.

I would do Clutterbuck for Maatta straight up. Maybe throw in a conditional 3rd if he re-signs with you guys. Something around this would be about fair value. You get one part you need, we get one we need.
True on both accounts, but that doesn't mean they're desperate to trade a solid prospect for the first trade that comes along. It's not like most of those guys are knocking on the NHL door yet, some of them are in juniors. Shero has no need to make a desperation move.
