5 Guys I Wouldn't Mind Seeing In A Pens Jersey by March 4

So the second "half" of the season began for the Pens with a dominating performance against the Rangers earlier in this week. Now it's important to get 2 points every game, but it was even more important for them to come out of the gates flying. I liked what I saw, except why is Dupuis immediately back on the 1st line? I don't know why I even bother to ask these questions anymore. Vance and I have come to the conclusion the Therrien has no game plan, he's high, retarded, but probably both.

Moving on to the purpose of the post. The Pens are making their playoff push, and without a doubt they need to make a move. Do I personally expect a blockbuster rental from the $5/day rental shelf? No. But who cares what I think. Shero has been on record that this year is crucial, and he expects the team to make playoffs. As far as a Stanley Cup run...well we know the Pens aren't the best team in the East, and far from it. One thing not to overlook though is if they do make the playoffs, they'll be red hot considering they have to amass like 70% of their remaining points.

So the question that remains is how far can they go with their current roster? I'd say 7th or 8th in the East, but if they want to be certain they'll be in, Shero will make moves.

Below are some guys I'd like to see in a Pens jersey before the trade deadline. Keep in mind this is just me blowing smoke up mine and your ass.

1. Keith Tkachuk: 15 goals, 16 helpers....good for second on his team in scoring. Not bad for a young and struggling Blues team. He's a veteran, a leader on and off the ice. He could serve as our "Gary Roberts" type player...only Tkachuk would bury a few more goals I think. Oh and did I mention he's never won a Stanely Cup. He'd be hungry, and a mad man.

2. Nik Antropov: I hate this big mo' fo...but that's because all he does is score against the Pens. And that's about the only team he's been scoring against this season as he's known to be inconsistent...BUT the guy is huge (the son of a bitch is 6'6), and talented, and can shoot the puck. Leads the shitty leafs in scoring with 14 G and 22 A.

3. Mike Cammalleri: Did anyone see what this guy did to the Sabres this week? Last year of his contract...makes only $3.6...this could be a "big move" made by the Pens. I haven't seen them in any talks or rumors. But I'm just saying, this would be huge. He's a nasty winger. 25 G, 22 A. I'd much rather trade for him than make a blockbuster deal...granted I guess this would be one, but it wouldn't be like trading for a Groin Injury (Gaborik)

4.Vincent Lecavalier: Here's your blockbuster. It's the only one I'm giving you. There's nothing to say about him, we know he's nasty. I don't see this happening at all, but then again, I never saw the Hossa trade coming...but then again...the Pens were good last year. Does Shero have it in him again?

5. Mark Recchi: Who'd have thought that amongst the mess that is the Lightning, Recchi would be having such a good season. 11G, 22A...not too shabby. I thought his career would die there, but if the Wreckinball wants one more shot at the cup, he's gotta move. He's old as shit, but the man wanted to prove in Tampa that he could still play, and boy did he. Would he be willing to let bygones be bygones?

Ok that's all. Remember, there is little to no validity behind any of this. It's just my hopeful wishing and well-respected with just my friends opinion. [Dude, I'm not even sure what the hell you're trying to say with this, I'd change it, but I'm laughing at it. - Vance]

Good luck getting people behind this one. Though you make some VERY fascinating points, youre going to have to do more than bring up a few things that may be different than what weve already heard. What are trying to say here? What do you want us to think? It seems like you cant really get behind a unique thought. Anyway, thats just my opinion.
