What players do the Penguins trade in this scenario

That just seemed like an odd statement as if we always do it. That said, you either trade Orpik in the offseason or you keep him for the playoffs. Contending teams never subtract for a playoff run. My personal preference would be to trade him for organizational need now and let Despres grow into the top 4 position right off the bat.
