It's based on how central to the team they are, I think. Crosby and Malkin are at the center, Fleury and Letang are on the next tier of stardom, and Orpik and Staal are core players, but not quite stars.
Pretty good observation, i guess that answers my question

Odds that Geno's twitter account becomes an "insider?"

No, no. I'm saying, how quickly until reporters start saying, "An insider has said..." and that insider is actually Geno's twitter account.

Can you imagine the report though...

A Penguins insider has claimed that "Sid, he real good. He are score tonight. Lest go Pens."

Reports are unconfirmed for now.

The better question is why is Sid in the picture when HFboards said he retired in August?

I think it was determined earlier this summer during discussion that Nashville still owns his rights but man... how awesome would it be to get a deal done behind closed doors with those guys. Just pay Nashville some reasonable price to get his negotiating rights (they obviously don't expect him back - maybe move a 3rd rounder in next year's draft or something), and drop in on him and say "hey how'd you like to line up next to Geno this year?... just sign here."

I suspect we wouldn't have to throw a very big offer at him to get him to say "yes". 1 yr, maybe same money Neal makes, roughly. Enough to prove himself so he can negotiate a longer-term deal next summer.

Imagine this:

Kunitz - Sid - Neal
Sully - Geno - Radulov
Cooke - Staal - TK
Who Cares

Needs-wise, absolutely. Although to hear it from the Preds board his personality flaws bear a striking resemblance in some ways to those who Die Alive. Just swap out some of the insecurity for egomania and you have Radulov apparently. Maybe it's just as well we don't have him.

I have to think at some point over the last couple years Shero entertained the idea because it is a bad situation for Nashville's GM, which I'm sure he'd jump at the chance to drop the problem in someone else's lap if he though he could get a reasonable price. For that matter was Shero there the year Radulov left? That would pretty much guarantee it would never happen IMO but I forget the timelines exactly.

I don't know much about the guy's personality but you could say this at least: whatever emo baggage he'd carry with him (like Filatov or Zherdev), you'd at least know that unlike those two, Radulov would f-ing light it up playing next to Geno. 80 points would be an avg year for him in that situation IMO.

Unless he's gotten fat like Doughty.

The message at the bottom is:

Mal trener zaebal obmenna poroshu = мал тренер заебал обмена попрошу

Basically means he got into a confrontation with the coach and wants a release/trade/exchage.


(My Russian is elementary, so it might be off a little.)

No, that's a pretty good translation, Harv. I'd only add that "zaebat", the verb, is pretty intense. Sounds like it was a hell of an argument.

Anyone see the players tweets that the NHL Network is scrolling on their ticker? What a bunch of mind-numbingly pointless dribble. NHL players are criminally boring.

No problemo. Some guy posted it on the main boards and said for anyone to use it.

It's very nice.

How do you think I feel as a WVU fan to find out that my favorite athlete is rooting for PITT?
