just waiting for the years go by and start to hear the wild fans wanting to get rid of little zach and get someone bigger to replace him. As i have been saying ever since 2010 loss to the flyers, zach is too small to carry a team. Prongerlike player can shut him down 100%. Good riddance, sucks that we didnt get anything in return.

Malkin is UFA end of next year...


Kidding but unlike Crosby I believe he could buy into the system and make a great Devil.

That sucks. I didn't like Jamie right before he left, but I have no ill will toward him now. Hopefully he can get back to the NHL again before he retires.

Who says Hedman is horrifying ? Kid shuts down top lines with 60% defensive zone starts night in, night out and he's surrounded by defensive liabilities. Cluef'ingless.

I'd take him in a heartbeat

Cap hit would be high but Kovy and Malkin on the same line?

With Kovy, Zajac, and Malkin all with high cap hits, we'd only have enough money for like three other players on the team.

And seriously, why is Peter Harrold still up with the big club as the 8th defenseman when he could be helping the kids down in Albany?!

I'd offer Malkin whatever wants, period. I'd live with Kovy at 6.6M$, Zajac at 5.75M$ and Malkin at what, 7M$/7.5M$?

The money Gino would get is basically the equivalent of Volchenkov + Tallinder and one of them is currently a healthy scratch and the other... well, you know

You don't think Crosby could buy into the system?

He's probably the best player in the world but I think he behaves too poorly to make a great Devil. He's losing his cool when things don't go his way.

because he has the flexibility to play both forward and D. especially with Zubrus out, he needs to stay up.

Plus in order for him to go to the AHL he would have to be placed on waivers, I believe someone would pick him right off the waiver wire.

Seriously, this is the greatest/funniest thing I`ve seen all year.

Because he doesn`t care, so why should we? Tallinder`s situation, however, is concerning, that`s for sure.

We just have to wait.

Never seen Malkin do that before.

Oh wait.

If anything the Tallinder thing might become an issue soon if he stays up in the press box. For example look at Zidlicky last year once he started being vocal in complaints. Who knows if they could have gotten a better deal had he stayed quiet but I suspect he would have. I'd rather not have to ship Tallinder for a granola bar.

And does Zajac's deal really count as a big one? I mean it's under 6

I don`t think Tallinder is that type of a person. What I think is wrong is that we`re hurting his trade value right now. So the longer it gets the worse. Lou has to find the line and make a move. It`s fine that we`re patiently waiting for someone to hit the panic button, but this can`t drag for much longer.

I hope not but you never know and I assume his agent may make a move as well. Also I assume he'll be in a game eventually. Between a dman getting banged up or whatnot, and most teams know what kind of game he brings and such already as well. Definitely not good to have him sitting around though.

For a player like that, you adjust the system slightly to fit him, like we did for Kovy. He'd do fine here. The litmus test for being a good Devil is simple: does he play good defence? If not, can he learn how? If yes, then he'll do fine. Crosby qualifies.

It's all moot anyway, he's never leaving the Penguins unless Shero is a complete moron.

I do NOT want Shrek anywhere near this team. He's a walking Game-Misconduct waiting to happen at the most inopportune times. I don't care how talented he is.

Notice at the bottom in the games to see part the only team that has a link from their name straight to their home page is the Rangers. The league has a Ranger bias

I still can't figure out where this has come from, but I'm enjoying the ride. I hope he keeps it up.
