Well, he did express his desire to come to the Pens prior to the trade deadline. You'd have to think that, as a UFA, we'd still have to be his top choice IF of course Shero is still interested. Signing Whitney will also mean that we wouldn't have to worry about Guerin being brought back for another year

I still think he's going to cost around 3 million/per and get at least 2 years. I'd give it to him, but some wouldn't since he's getting up there in age.

He also did just drop 20 points out of the blue, that will also come to their decisions aswell.

Rutherford is a good GM but he played his cards wrong on this one. Not only did his team not make the playoffs but now they will get nothing in return for a player who he knew wanted out.

there isnt really anything he could have done. Whitney had a NTC.

If this is true, this could be good news.

Crosby and Whitney would be absolutley dynamite together. I'd LOVE to see:

Tangradi-Crosby-Whitney
Kunitz-Malkin-Talbot/Dupuis
Cooke-Staal-Kennedy
Rupp-Adams/Talbot-Dupuis/Adams

Much improved first line with a player who can think at a Crosby level and can both pass and score. This first line also allows our best prospect to grow with our best player.

Give Malkin a player in Kunitz who can open him up space and make all of the small plays to him. This is when Geno, IMO, has worked his best. Maybe get a deadline soft spot sniper or get someone on a cheap one year deal (Tanguay, maybe Kariya etc.). If worse comes to worse, try Whitney with Geno because we know Kunitz has worked with Crosby before.

Third line and fourth line basically the same.

In this scenario, The first and second lines are much improved IMO and this is all completed without having to trading our 1st round pick this year to get a long term fix. This way, when Whitney is done in say, two years, Tangradi is ready to contribute at an even higher level and you got our first rounder from this year waiting in the wings for Geno or Sid.

Am I the only person not foaming at the mouth to get Ray Whitney? Haven't we learned a lesson yet?

I'd agree with you if it were almost any other older player, even Kariya. But Whitney is showing zero signs of slowing down and thinks the game at a higher level then most players in the NHL. He is a guy who is and seems like always will be, a very smooth skater.

I think that was more to do with the weakness of the Canes themselves rather than Ray Whitney.

I've been thinking about Svatos. Maybe something around $1.4 million. Change of scenery could make him a +30 goal scorer again and playing with Malkin should surely help that.

Whitney - Crosby - Tangradi
Kunitz - Malkin - Svatos

Agreed. The Canes were dreadful for most of last year. Everytime I saw Whitney play last season he was impressive and still as good as he was the year before.

Whitney plays LW exclusively.

Whitney - Crosby - Tangradi

Not a terrible idea either. With Whitney, Kunitz and if Tangradi is ready, we will have a of options in the top 6. Last year we had at least 2-3 liabilities/players who don't belong in the top 4 winger spots, out of our top 4 wingers. This upcoming year, if we play our cards right, we might have only 1 or so.

Gotcha. So put him on the left with Crosby then. I believe Tangradi is okay playing both sides? I know last year in the preseason it was either him or Kunitz who went over to the other side when Sid, Kunitz and Tangradi had that great game.
