I say we just roll with:

Letang-Despres
Orpik-Niskanen
Engelland-Martin
Strait/Bortuzzo

We can trade Martin mid-season if Morrow impresses.

That Michalek guy in Phoenix is pretty good, and experienced, too!

Never gets old....

Would you take Jordan Leopold back? Could be a minute eating 2nd pairing defenseman decent on both ends of the ice.

No, Leopold and Martin are too similar.

They don't need another D. The horrible defense we saw last year wasn't a player problem it was a coach problem. People have fallen in love with Bylsma & are way to willing to give him a pass.

I actually think you guys have a pretty solid D but you got away from it in the Playoffs for some reason. Maybe Philly just has their number which Im sure is a good amount of it. I think Pitt was good enough to even sweep Philly last year but Philly got in their heads quick and it showed. I think you guys were much better than your showing was vs Philly.

I would love to have someone explain this to me. Sounds like a copout. Ray Shero, the man who appointed Dan Bylsma head coach, doesn't understand his own team's playing style well enough to acquire proper fits for the system? Really? Somebody please enlighten me. Before you do, tell me what Martin's numbers were the last 20 regular season games. Statistics lie, you say? Actually Martin was fine at the end of last year. As RRP said as regards Michalek, it just wasn't working. Time to move on.

The Penguins are not looking to add a defenseman. They may look for one at the deadline depending upon whether Martin is a cluster**** again and upon how the younger kids are playing.

When all else fails blame Paul Martin. Pens fans would blame him for goals when he was on the bench. It just goes that way with the large contract.
