So does that mean no Domi in Pitt?

I'd say so. Otherwise the Roy signing is sort of redundant. Maybe Domi's asking price was too high?

Probably a good move by Pitt. Too many big ego's on the Pens as it is.

I say that means no Domi to Pittsburgh, but what is Pittsburgh's situation right now ? what's the cap going to be once they sign all the RFA's....can they afford a goalie to help Fleury get into the game, so that he can adapt to the game....

Too many? Name one. Mario is allowed to have an ego seeing how he is God. No one else on that team has an ego.

I hear ya man.
What the hell is up with that?
The days of the Pens egos are 4 or 5 years in the past.
Who does he think has the ego's, Malone, Tarnstrom, Kraft, Recchi, Koltsov, Orpik, Melchar, Fluery????
What a dumba$$ comment.

Roy wouldn't be bad if he didn't have a severe case of Donald Brashear syndrome.

I hope they get someone better than Andre to be their enforcer.

we already have Ryan Vandenbusshe. Not an elite fighter by any means, but havig those two paired together should be sufficient.

A three year deal at $1M per... Andre makes out like a bandit, straight from Tortorella's doghouse.

I suppose but Vandy isnt much of a player. Roy-Endicott-Domi sounds nice.

That was the same game Lemieux had 4 assists to reach 1000 and was Kovy's last game as a Penguin (he had 2 goals and 2 assists in a 5-2 win). This was the first game after the "Lemieux-Ference incident" when the Pens got killed by the Panthers 6-0 I believe.
Didn't the bruins have what was called the "700 pound line" of Knuble-thornton-Murray while the Pens, for that game at least, actually had a line over 700 pounds.

This is the kinda **** that baffles me. I figured enforcers like Roy and Domi would be signed with the last crop of players, yet somehow they get signed now for a million bucks, over a mill in Domi's case.
