Abid, Kraft, Beech, Orpik etc really need to step up in this game.

Especially the forwards you mentioned. If they don't, I think Edzo will cut them. Yes, all three, even Abid.

Their spots can go to other players who have earned it, like Koltsov, Murley, and even the very young Malone.

I'd cut Abid first of the four, and i wouldn't touch malone.

Murley and Koltsov should be there for sure. Murley reminds me of Ryan Smyth, and Koltsov is just gold.

As far as I'm concerned, Murley and Koltsov are locks to at least start the season. We'll see what they can do from there though.

Malone is still extremely young, and has only played in a few AHL games. So I don't know if he will make it or not.

Malone isn't "very young".

He's 23...he's older than Abid, Koltsov, Beech, etc...

Koltsov71
09-27-2003, 01:03 PM
Malone isn't "very young".

Yes. Very inexperienced at the professional level is a better way to put it.

i really think beech will be cut, and i wouldnt be surrpised if we see kraft traded because they dont want to lose him to waivers. however, i dont see them placing Abid on waivers at all since we've been lacking power forwards for years now.

Koltsov71
09-27-2003, 02:34 PM
however, i dont see them placing Abid on waivers at all since we've been lacking power forwards for years now.

To expand on that point.. Abid has only played three games as a Penguin. So, he hasn't had a chance to really disappoint us yet, unlike Kraft.

I still think Beech is going to make this team.

Malone? Abid's younger, has proven more and has greater potential. All Malone's done is out produce him in the training camp tourney.

Anyone know how I can change RealOne player to my default media player? Windows media Player has not been working for me and I havn't been able to listen in on ANY :( Penguins games yet. If I were to delete WMP completely from my computer would I still be able to listen in on the Penguins game with RealOne player or do I have to have WMP on my computer?
Thanks in advance for any help.

:rolleyes:

Why then don't you say the same thing about Murley and Koltsov??? They are relatively all the same age.

Abid, Kraft, and Beech have done pretty much nothing to earn a spot. Murley and Koltsov have, and Malone is not too far behind them.

All I was saying is that Malone may make the team because there is a spot or two up for grabs. The best thing is for him to get a year of AHL play under his belt, but you never know.

Abid by no means has a spot locked up. He is on par with Sivek and Surovy thusfar, and they have already been cut. He may have had an OK season last year, but that doesn't get him a spot either.

Yeaahhh, i got it working. i deleted the most recent version of WMP (9 or something) then went to Pensnet.com and it automatically told me I had to download a version and asked me if i wanted to download it :)

DJ Spinoza

It keeps going in and out. Reception tonight will suck.:mad:

They are working with the phone company, that's why. I hope it fixes.

So if the reception is bad, it's not just you. Just went out right now for me...Seems like every 20 seconds it goes out.

Glad to see you finally got it to work though.

Yes, coverage has started. But the sound quality is really poor. It keeps cutting out.

Mine runs for 10 seconds and cuts out for 2 minutes. :mad:

Yeah, this is downright terrible. Hopefully it will get fixed early on in the game.

Mines not bad at all. it goes for about 1-2 minutes and then cuts out for 15-20 secs, not too bad.

What has Malone shown during the exhibition games that warrants him a spot on the roster? Vujtek did lead our training camp tourney in points last year and where did that get him?

Fleury is playing outstanding.

Guys, Surovy has scored for the Baby Pens tonight...It's 3-2 Syracuse at the start of the third (not listening, but someone I am talking to is). Thought some of you might want to know.

(They need to sign him anyways, even if he doesn't play this year.)

Darth Vitale

I know it's still just pre-season but I'm really starting to get excited about this Fluery kid. You obviously don't want to rush him but I think it would be great if he could split time with Caron, as people have been saying.

Thanks for the updates, everyone.

DJ Spinoza
09-27-2003, 04:58 PM
No problem. My updates are over now...Law and Order CI premeire is starting soon.

Looks like the Pens have this one in the bag. Good game for Armstrong tonight, just crashed the net.

Good game.

Outstanding performance by Fleury. Sound like he played pretty well. Probably should have had that goal, but can't stop him all.

Good to see Beech and Armstrong show up on the scoresheet.

I'd assume they'll be making some cuts in the next day or two. Should give us a better idea.

DJ Spinoza

I think they might put a similar lineup out tommorow, except maybe the defense will change and Straka will play.

Many cuts will come Monday, possibly even all the neccessary ones. So maybe we'll know then.

09-27-2003, 06:26 PM
I'm guessing that the chances of Fleury playing tomorrow is nil considering he played the whole game tonight? That would suck, I want to see him play :mad:

09-27-2003, 06:29 PM
Another great showing from Fleury :handclap:

I'd honestly be suprised if he isn't at least signed.....granted it is only the preseason but this kid has been outstanding and has proven he could face some top talent (Jagr, Thornton, Murray, etc)....after such a strong preseason I see no reason to at least not let him start out the season and see how he fares.....this could mean the end of Aubin's days in the Burgh as well....ah who am I kidding....he'd most likely clear waivers again...

.....this could mean the end of Aubin's days in the Burgh as well....ah who am I kidding....he'd most likely clear waivers again...
probably wishful thinking, has he played at all in the preseason? And if not has he really been that bad in training camp?

Don'tcry4mejanhrdina
09-27-2003, 07:54 PM
He has played in one game and wasn't good, but I wouldn't say he was terrible either. Patrick might buy him out if he passes through waivers.

AEKaki
09-27-2003, 08:32 PM
I'm expecting Chiodo to get the start tomorrow. He hasn't played yet, but was back-up 3 times.

Nice to see Beech score the GWG.

Just sign Fleury. He deserves a spot.
