The Pens stink because half the payroll goes to 2 players, Mario and Straka, leaving only $15 million for the other 20. This is why the Pens stink.
ok, so the lack of money that has caused us to lose Francis, kasperitis, Kovalev Lang Boughner among others because WE COULD NOT AFFORD THEM has nothing to do with a lack of money. right...
