The fact that they have 10 Despres in the organization at various levels allows the Pens to move him for an asset that need now. That's why his name is being brought up.
I disagree / dislike this comment. I think Despres is a number 2 defenseman. I don't think we have 1 single other defensive prospect that can step in and be the number 2 beside Letang next year.
I agree with you on the number 2, but I also don't think he's a number 2. He's 3-4 at this point...and he's going to get better. I'd rather move one of the other guys outside Joe Morrow instead, but it depends on who comes back this way.
The other thing is that we are playing for a cup this year. That's the attitude now and we'll see where it goes. I just hope if he is moved, it is for a great stay at home D.
