True, it's more of a risk move for the Pens than it is for LA. He doesn't fit there and maybe Muzzin + Gagne isn't enough, something else would need to be thrown in. The games I have seen Gagne in this year, his skating is fine, it just seems like he doesn't fit Sutter's style. He has had 3 concussions in his career, I think, or has it been more? I would love the Pens to get Umberger or even Iginla...maybe even Setoguchi. But those trades would cost the Pens more.

What are the Pens other options? Keep at it with Cooke in the top 6 because Bylsma is an idiot?
