I'm pretty certain we will

need more strength down the middle -- the C position needs to be bolstered


I've read or heard (can't remember) quotes from Rutherford recently saying he still considered center a high priority. So I'd still bet on something happening.

Think about last year when we were worried about the defense. The team I'm sure knew Letang was out long term and they needed a Dman. Rumors were that JR was in on Shattenkirk, but Wash offered more and got him. JR responded by acquiring Hainsey and Streit. In hindsight not acquiring Shattenkirk was a blessing

So if we miss out on Brassard, I bet JR goes for quantity with some low level guys in response.

As for Grabner...eh, I'm really not as keen on him as everyone else. If our PK sucked, yeah definitely get him. He doesn't have many Even Strength goals and it just seems like he's more of an individual guy vs a team player (look at his assists).

I just don't think we'll see a winger of much significance added (perhaps a minor move).

EDIT: I would think if JR does something, it's gotta be in the next day or so since they had this long break and it would allow this player to get acclimated with Practices

Been reading that for a few days now.
I hope not.
It would be a bold move by Tampa because after next season Karlsson wants to get paid as the best D man in the league. Tampa won't be able to afford that(unless they purge) and that means he is a one year along with the rest of this season rental.
And the price to acquire Karlsson-probably would put a hole in the Tampa roster as far as their up and coming youngsters.

It's a chilling thought though.

Agree- maybe the Pens have them scared a bit

NYR trade Grabner to the Devils for a #2 and a D prospect currently playing in KHL.

That could only be as a potential PKer, otherwise it makes little to no sense with the current roster.
