again dont be too sure about that, your team is in very serious financial trouble and lockout or no lockout isnt gonna fix that.

right now {as of right now} the pens CANNOT afford the signing bonuses and performance bonuses that Ovchekin is gonna require. They couldn't make fleury's and they arent gonna be able to make both.

more than a few people i've talked to have said that pitts is almost def. gonna move the pick and buy themselves some time {they'll still draft a high end prospect but one who at least gives them another year and won't require quite as much money.

it's not pretty, but i'd be VERY surprised if Ovchekin becomes a penguin.
