BREAKING: Olli Maatta will remain with #Pens. Ray Shero:"Based on his play, we believe this is the best decision for Olli & the Penguins..."

Kind of hate to see Bortuzzo be relegated to 7th D status though, but I suppose it's necessary.

I'm excited that he's staying, but once Letang returns...

Yea it looks like Despres has been a solied 1-2 Dman in WBS this year... I wouldn't count him out just yet. He is a BIG boy that skates fairly well. I am sure that if he was available, there would have already been some offers...

I just hope he plays. If they keep him here and let him play 39 games, then it was a waste.

You don't think Shero would pull the trigger on a deal if a surplus goalie of decent age were made available for Despres?

About the only doubt I would have is that you don't sell low on Despres right now.

Tradable talent isn't exactly an expendable commodity.
