Getting everything you want is not as fun as people make out. This sucks.

Theres really no need... we're already carrying what 9 defencemen? Letang should be back next week and martin will probably miss one week of the playoffs.

You probably are right, but the team's transition game looked really weak with Orpik, Murray, Engo, AND Eaton all out there. Letang coming back should be enough though as long as Engo comes out. We can win an opening round with Letang, Murray, Orpik, Nisky, Eaton, and Despres as the starting six, although I'd be a little worried if something else happened to Tanger, Nisky, or Despres. I don't know . . . I'd say not to discount the possibility that Shero acquires another guy as long as it doesn't involve a significant asset. After all, there's no roster limit, and he's got plenty of cap space.

I don't think they'll bring in another D-Man. The only slight possibility I could see is Jordan Leopold if he can be had for dirt cheap. He'd give them another veteran PMD until Martin can return but I think Despres, Letang and Niskanen are enough PMD's once Letang gets back. Shero may want some insurance though. You never know.

Leopold was traded to the Blues for draft picks shortly after the Pens game.

I don't think the Pens will add another defenseman.

Sorry. I missed that. I was still catching up on Pens board reading and hadn't checked the main board yet. Looks like he went for a 2nd and a 5th. That's too rich for our blood anyway.

ROFL, make it 'someone LIKE Leopold who can be had for dirt cheap' then.

Seriously, would you be surprised. In a first round series, with Martin out, if something God forbid happened to Tanger or Nisky or Despres or if Despres really was just struggling, then you'd be forced to play Murray, Orpik, AND Engo. Not the best thing for a team that relies so heavily on a fast transition game, as we saw today.

IMO, Shero won't spend significant assets to do it, but he'll pick up a Jordan Leopold type if the opportunity is there. As I said, he's got the cap space and the absence of roster limits to do it.

Anyone we can give up a 1st, Maatta, and TK for?

Also, should we be looking at a center?

I know NFL players have played with broken jaws before (Manning only missed a snap when he broke his jaw) but not sure what the norm is in hockey. Do we think Sid is going to miss time beyond today?

We have the space... interesting idea, although we'd never keep him and he's not the player he used to be / has never been great defensively to begin with, so not a replacement for Martin by any means. In short, not likely. We have several guys who are defensively better than Kaberle is.

Perhaphs we could be sellers at the deadline(tk glass etc.) But i think the draft is going to BUSY. Shero and alot of other gms will try to stay under the cap

If he was a UFA, I'd be OK with it, but he has one more year at a 4+ cap. Don't think we can risk being unable to move it after the year.

Funny that three years later Leopold actually cost an extra draft pick to acquire compared to when the Pens traded for him. I guess there were multiple teams interested for just the second-rounder that the Blues chipped in another pick.

I can't see Shero doing much else this deadline other than restocking for picks in rounds 2-4 (two most likely candidates are Jeffrey and Kennedy). At the Draft... I'm not sure. Will be a busy summer for Shero, win or lose this playoff. Big names to re-sign, big FA to keep here for another year before more of our Cap is eaten up per year by Geno and Letang... several role players up for FA, few picks. Could be a very busy Draft if Shero wants to restock. Could seem him bundling 2-3 players for someone's 1st (picks 15-20, not an early or late pick in the 1st -- no one would do the early pick and Shero wouldn't do the late pick) if they see a player they want bad who they think will be on the board.

Boston won the cup inspite of him when they traded for him. He's really not worth it.

We aren't trading Orpik at the deadline, barring an offer we can't refuse. With Letang and Martin out, his value (to the Pens) has never been higher, even if he has been playing some shaky hockey lately.

Do you think with PHX ownership woes they'd be more inclined to trade Yandle? I love his game and is a PPQ which is something very attractive. I'm not sure what his asking price would be. I'm not sure if we have the trading assets to get him. I'm just curious how everyone else feels about him. Thanks Happy Easter to my HF friends

YOu think we will go after a c/w and use him at center, then when Sid gets back move him to wing? Burmistrov comes to mind since he can play both C and W, hes also young so he isnt considered a rental.

But i guess we wont see something like that, i bet we just use Jeffrey (who should have been traded a long time ago).
