Despres Available For Pittsburgh?

This will tick off Penguins fans, as #1. It's Rob Rossi and #2. It's Despres whom I know Pens fans love but

Despres could be had from ‪#pens‬, who are looking for physical Dman to pair with Letang. Also, looking to upgrade forward depth. ‪#nhldraft‬

Doesn't make a lot of sense for Pens to move Despres, nor that they're coveting a physical d-man when Rossi stated yesterday that they were willing to move Orpik. Still Depres is a good young defenceman who's probably been NHL-ready for the last year.

Don't give Rossi attention, please. It just encourages him.

Think this is Rossi's "attempt" at an educated guess. Pens are stacked with D prospects so it does make sense to move one but they're really high on Despres and Morrow, only just drafted/acquired Pouliot, Matta and Dumoulin.

He better not be available considering with Michalek out, he is very likely to get a spot with the big club next year.

Rossi is such a joke. Shero has already stated Despres and Morrow can not be had at any price. They're untouchable.

Someone get this hack off social media

Rossi is a hack, but absolutely nobody believes that either Despres or Morrow is untouchable. Highly unlikely either is dealt, but they are far from untouchable if the right offer came.

If Shero put up Despres for trade, 29 teams would want him. He's going to be very good.

Unless it is for an absolute stud coming back...I quite honestly do not see it happening.

Makes no sense to trade Despres unless we are getting a really good D man in return. He's a big PMD who is good defensively, he seems like he would fit the Pens, no reason to trade him.

Two Penguins are untouchable. Despres is not one of them. That said, he wont come cheap.

Please...no. He looked awesome in the few games he played with the Pens last season.

This. I mean, he's good, but you make him sound like he's already a legit #1. Seriously, stop overrating your prospects.

Just because he isn't a stud doesn't mean we're going to trade him for a player who won't be as good in the future.

He seems like a future stud who could make the team next year, he's big and can play both offense and defense.

Not trying to say he's so valuable to the whole league, but he's really valuable to the Pens and it doesn't make sense to move him unless we are getting a young stud in return. NOT SAYING THAT'S WHAT HE'S WORTH. I'm saying that's the only way trading him makes sense.

Any of the Penguins "prospects" are available in the right deal.

Ok. If he's so over rated, then we will just keep him.

No one said he was a legit #1.

It would be the same if RNH, Yakupov, OEL, etc were rumored to be available...every team like their prospects.
