Are we talking about the same player? This Tyler bertuzzi who has never been a point per game player and has only cracked 50 points once. Not to mention his unvaxced status and the fact he’s a pending UFA. Bertuzzi wouldn’t even play on Pittsburghs first line.
A first round pick + Owen Pickering would be more than enough value. That’s without even adding Poulin, POJ, Blomqvist or any other prospects. The pens system is weak, but they have some value. The got ranked 27th by EP, not 32nd. They have prospects of value and even the 32nd prospect pool has prospects of value.
This idea of “the pens don’t have the pieces to trade for _____ player” really grinds my gears. A package of our next two 1st round picks, Pickering, Poulin, Blomqvist, POJ, and Hallander would be of equal value to basically any player in the league who isn’t like top 25ish in the league.
