Think most Pens fans would rather try leaving Kunitz/Malkin/Neal together as they had such great chemistry/stats last season.

How would we know? They probably do. I am all for trying out both in camp and pre-season, but the first plan usually is "never change a winning team", so why break up Malkin-Neal?

When you have a line that lit it up like Malkin and Neal's did last year, you would be a fool to touch it for not good reason. There is supurb chemistry with Malkin and Neal, why would Bylsma change it?

They probably wouldn't, unless Semin and Crosby didn't mesh.

Chew on this.

I think that Jagr scored something like half of his 19 goals against the Pens last year. My numbers may be slightly exaggerated, but it was obvious that you remove the games that he played the Pens and his numbers, face it, were mediocre at best. He had something to prove against the Pens, no matter how misguided that chip on the shoulder was.

Semin has been all but run out of town in Washington wearing tar and feathers. After he looked very good in last year's playoffs. You do not think that he has something to prove? Now imagine doing it on the Pens of all places, who the Caps and their fans can not stand, on Sid or Malkin's wing. I am sure that he would love to troll the Caps like that after being set loose.

Did you watch the Rangers series? 4 points in 14 games is good?

It's not true. Many caps fans adore this guy. The idiots are the loudmouths that have run him out.

Maybe Hunter was a bad match. Don't make me sick. I presume you'll be fine with a 2nd line of grinders and passers now? Have fun watching Semin light us up next season with the Pens under a proper coach.

Semin is damn amazing, you Pens will be making me sick with jealously watching him. I'm not one of the fans who is blind to real talent and puts grinding above everything else.

the russians have a lot of nat. pride. there would be much comp. between sid/ neal.....geno/semin imo....... if not you could always change if it doesn't work.

I'm a Leafs fan and Semin is my favourite player, so I've watched both extensively. Semin's is easily better than Kessel's.

The Devils would go from being a playoff-hopeful to a contender for the Atlantic Division itself.
Sorry I don't feel bad for you one bit. You lost one player, cry me a river.

What did Malkin-Neal win? A playoff series? Anything?

The combination led to a scoring title and an MVP for Malkin and 40 goals for Neal. The two have great chemistry. I wouldn't mess with it.

Semin is an option if the money and term is right. I don't get the sense that the Pens are crazy about him though. He'd have to want to play here for whatever reason. I guess his motive could be to play with Sid or Malkin, take advantage of that and have a huge season like Neal did and really cash in next off-season.

Where is all this pens talk coming from?

ww.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Eklund/Friday-Morning-Rumor-Update-Leafs-wanting-Getzlaf-Semin-Deal-Today-Nash/1/45461

On Semin..

I am hearing this morning that we could see Alex Semin signed today and it appears to be coming down to two teams. NJ and Detroit. I will stay on top of this. I have had two sources tell me a Semin deal could be signed as early as today or possibly tomorrow...of course things can always change.

I doubt James Neal will throw a temper tantrum if he has to play on the same line as Sidney Crosby.

Semin's agent is your answer.

Art Ross, Hart, Lindsay. Did the other proposed lines win more or what has you so worried?
