I think Malone would add a LOT versus what Sullivan brings, and even some things that Dupuis doesn't bring. The biggest issue with Malone is his contract. But he brings a net front presence with size that this team lacks.
Despres has looked like he will make Martin and his 5 million expendable. I'm coming around to Rylan's line of thinking that this team can get more out of a bargain basement defenseman than what Martin brings with his contract size - someone like Hal Gill circa 2009, if not Gill himself.
Look at the defense the Pens won the Cup with:
Letang, Orpik, Gonchar, Scuderi, Gill, Eaton.
Yeah, I think it's time for Shero to rethink his blueline experiment. They won the Cup by having warriors up front and a no-name defense.
