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.
You guys need at least 1, if not two decent wingers if you're going to do anything this year come the playoffs. It might not be a trade with the Wild, but I'd bet you'll be trading with someone for a winger. It's also going to cost you what you have the most of to spare, a defensive prospect and/or draft picks. When the trade happens, it is going to be fair value as much as possible as well, Pens might even be the ones over paying some, just because there is a lot of need for decent wingers on a lot of teams.
