FAREWELL: Ben Lovejoy

This was the logical move given how well Despres and Bortuzzo have played. And, really, Lovejoy was never gonna see the ice again. With Matt Niskanen set to return in a few weeks, the Pens had to make a move. Shero has turned an undrafted fringe 6th-defenseman into a 5th-round pick.  Sold.

Their top priority has been to stock the organization with aggressive skaters who aren't afraid to forecheck, throw a little hit, get separation, and get a cycle going.  It's Bylsma...
