Bortuzzo was scratched for Engelland before Despres got called up. Despres is in because he fills a role more similar to Martin. If Orpik was out instead, I think we'd be seeing more of Bortuzzo.

Plus Despres was playing really well in WBS and deserves to be in the NHL anyways. The Pens have too many defensemen, even with 2 of them injured.

Agreed, I like what I see from him.

I just don't understand how with all our defenseman Engo is in the top six.

Actually in Europe a lot of players let their back pads visible like Ovechkin and it's hard to see their numbers. With this rule, players learn it the hard way!

Put him on the top line in stead of Dupuis.

If I was Shero, I would have had Thanksgiving dinner with Edmonton GM Craig MacTavish and talked possibilities of acquiring Taylor Hall for Kris Letang. Or I would put Brooks Orpik in the for sale column on craigslist.

I honestly think he'd excel. The 4th line has several shifts where they're controling the puck in the offensive zone for a good while. Why? Because Megna is planted in front of the net, which draws defenders to him and opens up so much space for the other guys to cycle.

If you were Shero, you'd know better than to waste MacTavish's time.

If we're trading for anybody from Edmonton it should be Jordan Eberle.

I think missed connections would be a suitable section. Eberle is also very good. Edmonton is definitely in need of Defensemen so why would it be a waste of his time? You don't think they'd love to have Letang right now compared to their **** D?

According to Bourquey, TBL is 4/33 on the PP without Stamkos.

Letang right now hardly seems like the cure for an ailing D. Plus I don't think they'd be willing to part with Hall.

I think it would be worth a shot but ya you are probably right. I honestly can't decide who I'd rather dump from our roster, Letang or Orpik. Letang will be one of the most overpaid penguins of all time starting next season but Brooks Orpik looks like he does LSD before every game :shock:

This game has me all screwed up. It's the middle of the 3rd, it's dark outside. Gotta be at least 9:00. Nope just after 6.
