Do you think Shipachyov becomes available, and where would you rank him among the often rumored 3C’s GMJR is interested in?

Many people are saying that Shipachyov is looking for a way out of his contract, so I’m sure he’s available for the right price. I think he’s a really talented guy, who has every right to be pissed off. He signed a two-year deal to come play NHL hockey, and his GM stuck him in the AHL. I think he would be a useful 3C for the Penguins, but he’s all offense and no defense. I don’t know if Jim Rutherford is okay with that. He seems to like to have a good defensive 3C who can win faceoffs and block shots.
