If Goli and a 1st was offered it'd be tough to turn down.

No. It didn't "gut" our bottom 6 at all.

Are you serious?

Look at our team. Even when its fully healthy we've got like 10 bottom sixers.

Erik Christensen and Colby Armstrong gutted out bottom six? Madness. I wont even touch the Cup comment.

In that case, we all know Richards is a rental in which case Dallas can resign him...but then its Neal for Gogo, 1st, and Dupuis.

Then you have Kunitz - Crosby - Neal and Winger - Richards - Winger...haha, whoever else is healthy at that time. CSK stays together.

It's fun to dream I guess.

Stars need a good PMD, I would bet Goligoski + a good pick/prospect gets it done.

and that's only if Dallas has no intentions of re-signing him, which from what I see here, I woudn't expect that to be the case.

Yikes.....

For the sake of argument let's ignore the fact that Pittsburgh is one of the very few teams where Brad Richards could be a 3rd line center instead of first or second.

I'd strongly consider moving Neal for Gogo and a 1st.

That leaves Brad Richards straight up for Pascal Dupuis.

Hell, even if it's Neal for Gogo, if I'm Joe Nieuwendyk I'm hanging up the phone laughing before Shero even finishes with "Brad Richards for Dupuis and our 1st".

Pens need to add just a little bit there.

He seemed to forget that just because a guy is a rental doesn't mean he's worth diddly squat . Brad Richards would be our 1st line centre right now and definitely our 2nd now Geno is done for the year.
