Absolutely. The Pens should be willing to move guys like Grant and Sneep. The future top four on D should be off limits. That's going to be a heck of a D core when they're all developed together.
I don't see Sneep ever making it here, nor do I see Bortuzzo or Gergen.
Strait and Grant could be a solid 5-6 in the future.
people said the same thing about Gogo last year, he was too small, etc. Sneep could very well make the team and be solid in the future.
about Minard - he is doing great in the AHL. 2nd in the AHL in scoring with 4 less games than the leader. i don't think he has a chance to make this team anytime soon so he could be some bait at the deadline, not much but he could get us something we need and i see him as someone likely to be traded just as a favor to him. of course i know he is a forward i should have been more clear putting him next to gogo and letang
nobody wants to get rid of gogo or letang, but we will have to give up a prospect most likely to get a rental or anyone worthwhile. one thing is certain, shero will make moves to try to sure up anything he can.
