You're right, I just picked Pitt because I believe they'll finish last. I was more interested in seeing if people would deal Brewer for Ovechkin (or even a very good shot at him) than making a serious pitch.

I'd say that Columbus would be infinitely more interested in making a deal that would pull their team from the abyss at this point, my personal feeling is that the Pens want a Fleury/Ovechkin tandem to drive up the value of their franchise. A Brewer/Fleury tandem isn't as "sexy" to the American public.
