Bobby Mac with some Pens news..

Shero poking around for a veteran center who can play minutes with Kunitz and Dupper..

Said Jeffery is being offered and this has nothing to do with a timeline on Crosby..

Jeffrey deserves a shot to play somewhere, imo. I am just scared at who this veteran stop-gap center may be.

I want somebody to play a top-six role until Sid's back, not some 4th-line drek. We have that in spades.
Jeffrey has top-6 ability, imo, I really want to see what Shero does with him that gets a better C option. Unless he gets a check-line C back for Jeffrey and turns Sutter into a top-6 C. I'm OK with that.

Only guy that I can come up with that fits the criteria Bobby Mac is suggesting, from a team that's out of the race, is possibly Roman Cervenka of the Flames?

He's not a center, but can play there. Played a little with Iggy earlier this season. He's soff, but very highly skilled. UFA at season's end, too.

Cervenka for Jeffrey. What does everybody think?

He's just as unproven as Jeffrey, isn't he? I don't think that's the kind of guy Shero is targeting.

I know they're in a playoff race (division title race) so he's not likely, but I think a guy like Cullen from Minnesota is the type of veteran center Shero is looking for.

Don't see the Wild moving Cullen. He's a contributing player on a playoff team.

I see no reason for Jokinen, who is signed through next year.

Yeah, that makes it better (depending on what's being withheld). Really don't want him taking up salary space next year.

They already said it doesn't. It's just an insurance plan to get TK off the first line C.

Pens get Jussi Jokinen. I hope the Canes are eating serious money off of his contract next year.
