Wilkes Barre's radio guy was on with Lang and Bourque talking about Sill being ready for Pittsburgh.
Would be nice to see him replace someone like Cooke or Adams. Seems like a cheap, young alternative to resigning all older guys we have now. Teams like Boston, Ottawa, Philly, and NYI have had success with younger guys in the lineup, I don't see why we can't.
