I'm not thinking it TPK.I'm one for knowing it...Shero has his work cut out for him this off season.This whole team has it's work cut out for it this off season.I think he needs to keep all doors open.Like I said in a few posts above.Everyone that isn't named Malkin,Crosby,and Neal should be fair game.I know everyone likes Letang,but defensively he's not that good and he's prone to turning the puck over...And even you pointed out that his hip has been bothering him for three years now..WTF is that???If that doesn't send up red flags.I don't know what does...I'm just saying that Shero can't afford to leave any stone unturned..
As far as all the FA's that you meantioned.I'd love to see the Pens go after Prust,Tootoo and Kelly..Then make a play for Fistric maybe in some kind of deal with the Stars..Obviously cash will always dictate what goes on...but there's your grit right there....
