We're not going to move Despres until it's in a deal for a legit top 6 option. Otherwise, we'll hold onto him.

We are going to need Despres next year and will be very glad the Pens didn't trade. Really hope they don't unless it's a Neal/Niskanen-Kunitz/Tangradi type deal. Orpik "should" be gone and Niskanen likely will be as well in the offseason. Letang's pay increase kicks in and need to use the rest on wingers. So with both of those dmen likely being gone , Despres will finally get what he deserves.


That should be the 6. Sure we still have depth with Dumoulin and Ulf's son who are NHL ready, but I don't trade away Despres just because we are stacked with prospects. Not unless he gets us a legit top 6 winger.

Wingels is a top 6 forward...
