Only a 7th rounder??? I know he has been a big disappointment but he is still young and has great size. I can't believe that is all they could get for him, I mean the corpse of Matthew Lombardi was traded for a 3rd round pick. How is Tangradi not worth at least as much as him?

Mac's can't even be seen in a BabyPens uniform let alone a Pens uniform...He's been buried...

I was thinking maybe the Pens would maybe package him into a deal to sweeten the pot so to speak to get what they want and need.Obviously that's not going to happen.

Thought he was worth a little more than a 7th rounder. Best of luck to him in the Peg.

Yeah, it's disappointing how he has developed (him and Keven Veilleux). But, I think trading him for a 7th round draft pick was a stupid move. I think we could have gotten more, and power-forwards usually take more time to develop.

Well they missed their shot at getting more for him when teams were inquiring about him last year,and Shero was reluctant to trade him at the time.He really hasn't panned out like they had hoped.

Yup, Ray Shero loves his undersized-speedy forwards.

Actually the Pens are 1 forward short with reese being sent down and tangradi being traded.Wonder who's going to get the call up...Wouldn't be surprised if it's Kostopolous

Only a 7th round pick? Really Ray? I know he's been a huge disappointment, but that was the best you could do?

Crap, wouldn't this ruin Peluso's chances in the Peg?

He will probably be back on waivers soon.
