[Rumour] Pens looking for RWer & Despres can be had for right price

47 posts in this topic

Hearing a lot of rumblings about the Penguins looking for a winger. Nothing close yet, but know that D Simon Despres can be had for the right price. Question becomes is that price a veteran winger with a short-term future or if the scouting staff has identified the next James Neal and now GM Ray Shero is set on trying to bring said player to Pittsburgh.

Booth+ for Despres+?

That could be a possibility, Booth fits the mold of Kunitz/Neal type. But then the Canucks may be too thin on the W although Kassian is looking so good.

Burrows - Kesler - Raymond is probably too weak of a 2nd line to win a cup...

Holy crap they're eyeing Kassian!!!

Don't do it MG! We need more Kassian's on this team, you can't trade away Kassian when we need more Kassian's!

That's foolish!

Maybe its a package for Iginla?

Kennedy + Despres + 1st?

Canucks don't have wingers to spare right now, much less wingers who can score goals.

EDIT: a winger who can score goals is arguably our greatest need.

Or out of nowhere the Penguins sign winger Jason Blake.....just sayin.....put in the right situation he could be servicable in Pittsburgh.

I could see the Pens get a guy like Stempniak from Calgary, could be a good stop gap until Bennett is ready.

Not too sure how much there is in this rumour, since it's a blog post by someone only identified as 'Rossi'. Well, other than the Penguins are pretty much always looking for a winger.

I hope the GM of the Flames would know that by agreeing to any deal that involves giving Iggy away to Pittsburgh it would mean an instant cup for the Penguins with the possiblity of 1 or several repeats

Dupuis-Crosby-Iginla

Neal-Malkin-Kunitz

The rest of the line-up doesn't even matter because no one would be able to compete with that top 6

Yeah, Iginla makes perfect sense. Especially if Pittsburgh is willing to part with a solid young player like Despres (and a 1st, likely). Pens have the cap room to do it without sending anyone back.
