I might be in the minority but I love the moves Pens are making. Yes, they have overpaid a bit but they had to. Not many teams are willing to sell and they are poised to make a great run. You got Crosby, Malkin, Letang, Neal all in their prime and getting players like Murray and Morrow to be good physical depth players is great. Chance at winning a cup is better than holding on to what 2nd rounders might be.

Also, that Staal trade looks pretty great right now. Not only did it allow for the Pens to get a solid cheap and young 3rd line center, they also got a high draft pick and used it to get a defensemen and shore up their farm system.

They have elite players, still some good players in the farm, still have a 1st round pick and they will probably be able to re-sign Murray and Morrow at a cheaper price.
