I'm sorry and understand Pens fans might not want to include him, but if we're trading Pominville I still think Bennett has to be coming back in the package. Pominville's not going to be a "rental". He's signed for next season and like it's been said, all you have to do is look at the numbers and add on everything he does off the score sheet to conclude he's a star winger. You have to give to get and you aren't going to get a player of Pominville's caliber if you aren't willing to give us one of your better prospects (in this case forward prospects) in the deal.

Like I said, Bennett almost has to be included. Buffalo has much more of a need for forward (specifically winger) prospects than defense prospects. If we're not getting Bennett then the only other player I'd take in this type of deal instead is Despres. Again, Morrow, Maatta, and Pouliot are really nice prospects but Buffalo's stronger in the prospect pool on defense.

Bennett + Niskanen + first is my asking price.
