Lines if Roberts was acquired?

Play him with Sid or play him with Staalkin?

Aren't these the same arguments used for LeClair?

Power forward, teach the young guys, good in the playoffs, blah, blah, blah.

How did that work out?

Only part that gets me nervous is that Ottawa and Toronto both wanted Roberts badly!, Hope we didn't overpay, if we got him...


I might be wrong, but I think that it's the other way around - Roberts wanted a trade to Ottawa or Toronto, but neither team was particularly interested.

I haven't seen anything that the leafs or Sens wanted him, just that he wanted to really go to the leafs and Sens.


Yes, Leafs and Sens were who he was "willing" to waive his NTC for.

Other than a brief mention on TSN that the pens may be interested, where is all this coming from?

I can find nothing, but I am not that smart.

With Sid. Roberts plays the left side, which is also where Staal is.

Roberts is still producing at a pretty productive clip. Say he is a slight improvement over Malone and Malone is now dealt to bring in a solid D-man it looks like a great pair of deadline deals to me

Yeah....we've actually seen Roberts play and is capable of keeping up with the normal speed of the NHL. Leclair just couldn't do it anymore. There's a big difference.

According to TSN:

Sources say the Penguins are prepared to give up a young roster player with potential in exchange for Roberts, who is an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season.


Ouellet and Christensen are the only guys that really fit that bill. Of the two, hopefully Ouellet. Or maybe Orpik? I don't know if 26 is really considered young though.

looks like the deal changed.

A young roster player from Mck's report on TSN.

$10 says Erik Christensen.

Yeah, but the difference that I can see is that Roberts is a better skater and way more intense.

By all accounts, Roberts brings it every night, is in better shape than LeClair ever was, and has a better work ethic.

My guess would be Thorburn, as he was just brought up to the roster.

updated 12:48 pm Bob McKenzie on TSN

And sources suggest the deal the Panthers have worked out with Roberts is with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Somebody contact Phil Bourque. I'm sure he has his finger on the pulse of the matter.

That sounds about right for a 40 year old

If it's anything more than Thorburn this deal is disappointing...
