The NHL Trade Deadline has come and gone. And while Ryan Kesler was unattainable for the Penguins; General Manager Ray Shero believes Marcel Goc and Lee Stempniak, who were acquired through trade, will help the Penguins reach Stanley Cup Glory once again.
Happy Trade Deadline Day everyone!
Lots of Penguins talk today as well as my take on why Ray Shero is adamantly pursuing Ryan Kesler and what it will mean for the Penguins moving forward if acquired.
Kesler the new Staal?
Vancouver’s Ryan Kesler has been link to the Penguins for nearly a week now. There are many reasons why Penguins Gm Ray Shero should do everything he can to acquire him and very few why he shouldn’t. (More in the link: Kesler a Perfect Fit?)
There may not be a better upgrade the Penguins could acquire. Gritty and offensively skilled, Ryan Kesler brings a style of game the Penguins have missed since the departure of Jordan Staal. The rumor of a Kesler trade popped up shortly after the Olympic break when it was reported that Ryan asked to be moved some time ago. Not long after that story surfaced another came about of how. Penguins GM, Ray Shero had at least one conversation with Canucks GM Mike Gillis.
