Bob Rossi on Twitter: #pens did pitch #Canucks on Kessler before Olympics. Hearing Sutter, Pouliot part of those talks. That was before Letang situation.

Basically what the Penguins got for Staal. Pittsburgh would have to add.


Pens got a young player - Sutter
Canes top prospect - Dumoulin
Canes first round pick - Ollie Maata

For Staal

Sutter is nothing special. Maata has to be the main piece coming this way. The kid is a beaut plus he was Horvats teammate in London

Incorrect. Derrick Pouliot was drafted with the 8th overall pick by Pittsburgh. The pick they obtained in the Staal Trade. Maatta was drafted 22nd overall, with Pittsburgh's own draft pick.

Read on twitter some Flyer fans saying they would trade Edler and Kesler for B Schenn.

Sounds nuts, but seriouly.........why not? Why not go this route if the opportunity was there?

Oops me bad

Not a massive fan of Pouliot. Defence prospects who are 5'11 I have no interest in. Maatta is on his way to becoming a very good 1st pairing NHL D-man

Probably true at this point. :P

Yes, that and trading his starter for a draft pick.

I wonder with the Sabres salary dump if they would trade Tyler Myers for Chris Tanev....

I'm sure they would, but why would we? 5.5 mill for the next 6 years for a guy, who yes, has some bright spots but since the rookie year has not taken steps forward...I'd stay with Tanev. If they move Tanev, has to be for upfront help, and I'd be loath to move him anyway.

My feeling on Myers is he just needs a change of scenery where he has some veteran blue liners to help get his game back going. They made him the go to guy way too early and didn't surround him with any good veteran defenceman to help him out. I like Tanev too, but he will be asking for a large contract next year and i think with the right mentoring Myers has more offensive upside and has the bigger body to handle the bigger forwards in the Western Conference...

This is what I was going to say, certain teams have ruined young and promising players, Buffalo and Edmonton are 2 teams plus may NYI. You bring in young guys with a good set of vets and put them into a position where they will learn the NHL. Does not mean you wait until they are 24 and "earn" their ice time.

Myers is a friggen tree. But if the rumors about him having back problems already are to be believed then steer clear. Tall guys with back problems often have them chronically.

Ok... who needs goaltending?

THE PENGUINS.

Luo, Kesler for MAF + Sutter + Maata + 1st.
5.3+5 = 5+2.1+.9+(1.2 of cap space)
10.3 = 9.2

Hmm... I"m 1.1M off.

And Tanner Glass.

Luo, Kes for MAF, Sutter, Maata, Glass + 1st.
