Thats what its gonna take though. Especially for Suter. Word was he wanted to sign with a team that he will be with for the rest of his career.

A Letang-Suter duo for many years to come could be good...

Crosby-Parise
Malkin-Neal
Letang-Suter

Everyone else just fill in the blanks...

What do you think the proper beer for FA day is? Something Pittsburgh based to help with the Parise-to-Pitt karma?

My wife and I have season tickets to the musicals at Benedum each summer and tomorrow we have tickets for Annie @ 2pm. I realized this on Wednesday when I looked at our packet of tickets and started to freak out. Luckily my wife loves me and just laughed and said she'd take one of her friends with her and I could stay home and watch tv and play on my forums. That's why I love her
awesome stuff

my fiance likes the Pens even. watches every game. But she just can't get in to this kind of stuff.

Since they are the cream of the crop, I'm not sure why Suter or Parise would want to sign immediately. They will be the ones setting the market and could afford some time to contemplate offers and use the time as additional leverage if need be.

From the old thread, the evil rossi twitter should randomly pick a hf trade thread and post a proposed trade from it.

I don't get how the EvilRossi twitter idea is different from the actual rossi twitter account?

Wouldn't "EvilRossi" tweet only solid, credible NHL news?

Unless they knew where they wanted to go already and got a reasonable offer off the bat? Like I said, if there is something to the Sid-Parise wanting to play together thing, and the Pens make an offer like has been reported, why would he mull over other offers? There are a lot of ifs in that statement, but it certainly is possible that there is some validity to all of this.

Also love these Niskanen quotes from twitter:

Niskanen: "I'm not happy to be in Pittsburgh. I'm super happy."


Niskanen: "Pittsburgh does things the right way, and I want to be a part of it there. I knew immediately it was the right place for me."
Awesome... I liked Nisk since his UMD days.

Bored on the day before UFA starts, so here goes:


It's been rumored that Nashville has interest in Martin. Also there are rumors that Radulov is going back to the KHL to come back next year as a UFA. Any chance he would stay in the NHL to play with Geno? Nashville knows he doesn't want to play for them and getting Martin back would be an important piece given Suter leaving. Radulov did seem to prove in his short time here that he can produce in the NHL. This would let Dupuis play on the 3rd line and make Kennedy and his 2m expendable.

Martin + Kennedy for Radulov + ?

I just expect every player to go to Philly now so, if they don't it's just a bonus.

It's a possibilty BUT Radulov didn't do himself any favors with the whole breaking curfew thing in the playoffs.

I could have sworn Radulov already said he was going to the KHL. I must be wrong.

Probably, i don't even know. If he talked to Geno and Pens brass, i'd certainly wouldn't be against it if he was on board but it's pretty doubtful the Pens are looking into him.

Yuck, no.

If they move Martin and Kennedy, I would hope it's to make space for someone like Doan, Whitney, or Stewart.

Radulov is already going back to the KHL, so it's a moot point.

@RobRossi_Trib

If what I hear #pens will offer on #PariseWatch is even close, him not signing would mean it was never about playing with Crosby

WTF does that even mean? Is he trying to say the offer will be huge? Is he trying to say the offer will be low?

If the reported offer to Parise is true, I can't see him getting a better deal from anyone else. The money is there, the amount of years is there, he'll be playing with the best center in the league and chances are, win a Cup or two during his 10 year span here.

It just makes too much sense.

He's a tool, forget it and don't ever think about it again...

You could be right. I was just perusing the Radulov thread on the trade rumors board and saw a quote from Poile that said he hadn't heard anything official yet. That with their supposed interest in Martin just got me thinking. If we were moving Martin I'd honestly rather just dump him for picks and sign Suter.

Am I the only one that doesn't want PArise ?

I mean I'd like to get big wingers, more power forward... Physical with a presence to the net...

I'd rather have Doan...

Doan is not as good as Parise. He's also a short term solution. Parise would be the best winger Sid's ever played with, and he'd be here for the long haul.
