Its bad enough that Raffi is probably gone soon. He always plays hard and is especially good when matched up on the line with the younger players. I hate to lose a man with energy. Now there is this speculation of pittspuke going after R.J.! DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT HOWSON!! He, not Nash, has been the best player and the heart of this team all season. Enough so that I would consider putting the "C" on his chest. So if the penguins come calling the only answer should be a polite smile while extending the right arm with the middle finger raised.

I'd make the deal but only for J Staal.

The pens would never trade Kris Letang straight up for Umberger, much less Letang and a first round pick. Seeing as the Jackets are in the Western Conference, I don't know if many of you have had the chance to watch the Pens and Letang in action, but I am somewhat familiar with Umberger from his Philly days. Given, he is a very good player, but he's just not in the same class as Letang who is only 22 and looks like a perennial all star in the not too distant future.

Scuttlebutt around Pittsburgh (see Mark Madden) has the Pens offering Goligoski for Umberger, which is laughable since Columbus already has Goligoski in the form of Kris Russell. And cheaper too.
