We wouldn't be able to afford Carle without trading someone like Martin, which needs to be done before we can even talk of signing him. I agree we need another defenseman or two but I'm not keen on signing someone like Carle to a heavy contract. We leanred that mistake with the very person we want him to replace, Martin.
On an unrelated note, I'm not sure why everyone is in such a hurry to try and trade Crosby, Malkin, or Staal? If a team makes a great offer, you take it but I wouldn't go actively looking to trade one of them. Crosby and Staal are free agents after this season and Malkin the following year. That is plenty of time to figure out what each one is looking for money wise and then if you realize you will not be able to afford them do you start looking. Besides, value tends to be higher at the trade deadline anyway, meaning we could potentially get more for them
the pens need another goaltender ,they should go after Bernier with the Kings, he was offered at the trade deadline,and L.A. has Quick,i think him and Fleury would do it.
People please STOP!!!
Crosby and Malkin aren't going anywhere.
Neither is Fleury.
The only people that it's possible with are Staal, or M&M
If they can even unload those contracts. I would honestly offer someone like the Islanders Martin and our second/third round pick for their sixth rounder because I just want him gone plus his 5 million dollar salary off the books.
CITY OF CHAMPIONS....and the Buccos
Martin will be gone, but no one else will be, except for some of the UFAs. Sully will be back, he has shown that he can still produce. Asham's goonery is the reason that he will be gone. Johnson is just awful. The Pens should trade Martin to a team in the Western Conference, his style will fit more there. I'd love to see a Martin for Willie Mitchell trade, but that is unlikely. Mitchell has been a tank this year, and he has scored a lot. Another player i'd like is Alex Edler, he plays a similar style to Martin, but he is 5 years younger, can still get better, and has more offensive skill than Martin. Just imagine these pairs:
Michalek-Mitchell/Edler (either a top-notch shutdown or a really balanced pair)

The video of Morrow's goal, what a play Letang makes there to set him up. Seriously, guys, the idea of trading Letang is preposterous. If the Penguins deal him, fire Shero.
I don't know much about Morrow. Is he a defensive, offensive or two way defenseman?
“I can’t wait to stand on the podium with Zygi and Mark and Jonathan, and we’re standing on the podium, and we look up and the confetti is falling down on top of us, and we’re all hand in hand, and Commissioner Goodell comes over and hands the Super Bowl trophy to Mr. Wilf and tells him he’s world champion, that is my goal and that is my drive.”
- Mike Zimmer
Morrow projects to be an offensive/two-way defenseman. He can play both zones though, he isn't a guy that can only play offense, he's decent in his own end as well
Yeah think of letang, and that is what kind of player he is. A tall, fast offensive/2-way D. Harrington is a sturdy, defensive D that showed this year that he also has an offensive upside. What about Bennet, will he play in the NHL next year?
There is no way the pens will trade Letang...he's become the backbone of our defense. We just need some big bodies...we need some tough guys that can crush someone wen we need it. No team is afraid of our defense.
