Our 1st round pick, Kennedy, Niskanen and a prospect/draft pick for just Latendresse and Barker. I'm seriously speechless right now, words can't describe this trade, Ray Shero would never offer or accept it.

However I wouldn't mind seeing the Penguins sign Chuck Kobasew cheap and try to get him back to his 20 goal season days
You mean after 1 season where he had to have hernia surgery. I'll put it this way I don't know he can stay healthy anymore than I can say your not very intelligent based on that comment.

counteroffer, if Minnesota really is interested in rights to Tyler Kennedy (it doesn't seem to me that the Wild are in need of his services, but whatever):

Martin Havlat
Clayton Stoner
6th round pick

FOR

Rights to Tyler Kennedy
Matt Niskanen
1st round pick 2011, 3rd round pick 2012

IMO this is overpayment for an oft injured winger

No way we give out Kennedy when he was one of the best players of our season, terrible return for Pittsburgh.

yeah no way would wind downgrade wing and defense for picks, while Havlat isn't the best player out there did you manage to watch him on the Wings 2 years ago he was a beast in playoffs and if it weren't for the dirty hit that caused the concussion might have given Wings a fight

no thank you

I'm not very intelligent? Well I didn't know he had hernia surgery. I don't follow the Minnesota Wild. All I know is that he only played 11 games. Let me break my opinion down for you.

I don't like this trade for several reasons.

1. Tyler Kennedy is a young player, has been in our organization since 2006, helped us to the cup final in 2008 and 2009 and has a right handed shot.

2. Matt Niskanen is a decent 5th defenseman making $1.5 million. Why would we bring in Cam Barker to play the same role at twice the money?

3. Giving up a first round pick (which Shero rarely does) AND a prospect? Why do the Penguins have to give up so much for so little?

4. Latendrasse is a LW with a left handed shot. We don't need that at all and considering he only played 11 games last year surgery or not, would be a risk.

I'm not saying Latendresse is bad, he only played 11 games, I didn't know he had hernia surgery. Still don't want him though. I wouldn't have wanted him when he scored 25 last year.

This trade will never happen.

Dear Pens Fans:

Please keep Kennedy. Wild fans don't want him. You obviously love him, and it would be great for all parties involved if you happily kept him. He's clearly a fit in Pittsburgh.

However, please stop having an entire thread where one Pen fan tries to trade Kennedy to the Wild for whoever, and than have other Pen's fans talk about how Kennedy is awesome while ripping into another team's players.

Save that for the Pens boards.

This is the history of this thread:

Pens Fan: How about this trade of Kennedy+ for Latendresse+?
Pens Fans: What a horrible deal! Pittsburgh gets robbed.
Wild Fans: Wild want no part of this. How can you say the Pens are getting robbed?
Pens Fans: Kennedy is awesome. He's worth more than Latendresse.
Wild Fans: Great. We'll keep Latendresse.
Pens Fans: Kennedy is better than most the Wild's players.
Wild Fans: Great. Keep Kennedy.
Pens Fans: Kennedy is awesome.
Wild Fans: Great.
Pens Fan: How about Kennedy+ for Havlat+?
Pens Fans: What a horrible deal! Pittisburgh gets robbed/
Pens Fans: Kennedy is awesome.
Wild Fans: Wild want no part of this. Shouldn't you Pens fans be doing this in your own forums, because you are basically having a conversation with yourselves?
Pens Fans: Sounds like you Wild fans don't realize how awesome Kennedy is.
Wild Fans: Great. Please tell us.
