Penguins GM Shero says he’s done making moves

Sidney Crosby‘s broken jaw  — which has him out of action indefinitely — won’t affect how Penguins general manager Ray Shero approaches Wednesday’s trade deadline.

“What center can you get to replace Sid, honestly?” Shero said, per the Tribune-Review. “We’ve made the moves we’re going to make, I think.”

The Penguins reportedly expect Crosby to be back for the playoffs and have already acquired forwards Jarome Iginla and Brenden Morrow, plus defenseman Douglas Murray.

Veteran defenseman Paul Martinout 4-6 weeks with a broken hand — is another injury concern, however. With the postseason scheduled to begin April 30, it’s not clear if he’ll be healthy for the first round.

Martin is averaging 25:23 of ice time, second on the team to only defenseman Kris Letang. The Penguins do have depth on the back end, but Martin’s puck moving will be missed nonetheless.

Pittsburgh hosts Buffalo tomorrow.

The Penguins, as you may have heard, have won 15 straight games.

      Pens fans, Bruins fans, fans of anyone who is looking to make a move for a player… so like 2/3 of the NHL… same as if any other team who had assets to trade said they were done trading.

    yeah right! Not after losing Crosby for who knows how long. This is an April fool’s day joke, Pittsburgh will make the first trade on Wednesday guaranteed!

    Good. No more tinkering. Need to find the right mix now for chemistry. The Rangers were lucky in 94 making that many moves. Three’s enough.
