The Penguins New Wingers

The Penguins are having a hard time at the moment with scoring goals but the last few moves that Ray Shero made should start to help that. With the addition of Alex Kovalev the Penguins add a new dimension  to their power play. Kovalev is not the same player that was here in the early 2000s but he is still an effective goal scorer and could help the Penguins in the long run. The best part about this trade is the Penguins only gave up a 7th round pick (will turn into 6th round pick if Penguins make it past first round of the playoffs and Kovalev plays at least 50% of the games).
The other winger the Pens acquired was James Neil from the Stars. Neil is a young talented winger with a lot  of upside. The best part about this trade is that Neil is not a rental player. The Penguins plan to hold on to Neil for a long time. Neil is a similar player to Mike Richards of the Flyers, in that,  he can do it all.
