Totally for shyts and gigs, not a rumor, not me being unhappy with Sutter or missing Staal...
Ryan O'Reilly; If the Penguins have a shot, do they go for him? Let's just play "make believe" for a moment and think about what Colorado would accept for this trade. Obviously there are teams with more to give than the Penguins, but again, let's make believe Colorado was ready to deal with Shero. What do you realistically think it would take? I would think Roster player, Prospect and draft pick.
The Penguins obviously are stronger in the prospect department as far as quality roster players they're willing to part with. So, assuming nobody else will out-bid the Pens, how do these sound to you?
Sutter, 2nd round pick, and one of either Morrow, Harrington or Despres.
Kennedy, 2nd round pick, and one of either Morrow, Harrington or Despres.
What would you realistically propose?
Would you want O'Reilly here? My concern would be him getting Jordan Staal syndrome playing on the third line. Would he? As far as money, he's looking for the $5M range, which is pretty doable with the Pens budget.
