I thought he was our insurance if Stevens retired.

Guess he will retire when he plays at least one game on every team in the NHL.

This move makes no sense for the Pens, but if he is on ice when we score on Pitt... I say "Let him stay!"

I like Odelin and he will help Pittsburgh especially if they pair him with Gonchar.
