I'm not the biggest DB supporter. But there's got to be a reason why Vitale doesn't see PK time. A reason other than his love for vets.

Maybe he doesn't do what DB tells him to. Maybe he's turned the puck over one too many times at either blue line.

I dunno. Either way, Vitale being the odd man out means we need someone who can win faceoffs regularly outside of Sid.

fair enough. if we aren't going to use Vitale, we really do need a 4th line C upgrade.

Dustin Jeffrey was an elite penalty killer in the AHL. Bylsma hates players that don't have experience.

I see what your saying. But why waste an asset on something you already have?

Shero fully supports DB. If Vitale is a healthy scratch in the regular season, he most certainly will be when games matter. Seeing as how Geno is erratic at best on draws and Sutter struggles mightily at times as well, I think we'll be looking to bring someone in.

Quote:
Penguins coach Dan Bylsma has been reluctant to use Glass and Vitale on the penalty kill lately, meaning Gordon could be a valuable addition to the shorthanded unit as well. He’s won more shorthanded faceoffs than anyone in the league this season, while Sutter has won just 50 percent of his attempted draws.

Yah if anything I'd say move spare parts (Kennedy, Glass) for draft picks. If we could get a late 2nd or early 3rd rounder for Kennedy I wouldn't think twice about it. We won't be able to keep him this summer if we intend to sign players better than him (of which there are plenty), so try to restock a bit.

Trading Glass would be awesome. I still can't believe this guy managed to get a multi-year $1M+ contract with a SC contender. He must have a hell of an agent.
