Default Re: Pens open against Flyers in Philly?

trade talks are heating up

NOooooooooooooo! not Despres!

trading Despres would be beyond stupid - I'd trade Orpik or Adams first

Pens looking at Jack Johnson (Columbus), Jarome Iginla (Calgary).

The NHL trade deadline expires in less than a month.

The Penguins may again me be looking to strike before it by moving a young defenseman.

Simon Despres, 21, is available – and the Columbus Blue Jackets’ three senior members of hockey operations attended the Penguins’ 4-3 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning at Consol Energy Center on Monday night.

New general manager Jarmo Kekalainen, his assistant Chris MacFarland, and senior advisor Craig Patrick – who preceded Ray Shero as Penguins general manager – watched the game from the media level.

The Penguins are also exploring the possibility of adding a veteran winger, and there is reported buzz within the NHL that Shero is intrigued by Calgary right winger Jarome Iginla, who is the Flames’ captain.
