Exactly.

haven't seen him. If he's anywhere close to what he used to be, sign him up

I'd rather we roll with what we got than waste assets on soft perimeter injury prone players.

I'm pretty sure he sucks now. I'm basing this on almost nothing.

Josh Yohe @JoshYohe_Trib

Looks like Kennedy is officially benched. Three bad turnovers in one game will do that.

I cannot imagine ROR coming to Pitt. No way Shero gives that kind of dough before sining letang and Malkin to contract extensions. Won't happen.

If we could get Gagne on the cheap, I'd be happy to have him. The injuries worry me, but he's still a skilled player who might be able to mesh with Malkin. He's only 32 or 33 too, so he's not too old. If he sucks, let him walk at the end of the year.

On the face of it you'd think this would make a ROR trade more likely (if Geno is hurt) but I think Shero and Bylsma would be as turned off by O'Reilly's nut-job dad as the rest of us / wouldn't want that drama here if things don't work out.

RoR: Yeah, i signed a discount to play with the Pens. I think they will be pretty good.

I was sure after Lindros' legendary dad that no other hockey dad would ever make those kinds of mistakes again but...

A guy like Malone if TB at 1/4 or 1/3 of the cap hit seems especially appealing tonight.

Farnham with a huge game tying goal late against Adironack, and a fight coming to the aid of Thiessen.

He also got some love from Phil Bourque on the radio tonight, Bourque basically said that if you don't know his name, you will and said don't be surprised to see him in the NHL.

Hopefully sooner rather than later, our bottom six is so bland right now.

Adams, although I wouldn't expect it until next year.

Nooo I'm sorry, the correct answer we were looking for was "nobody." That's right, nobody.

Dan Bylsma will not be sitting any of his veterans for another rookie this season, or most likely any season for that matter.

Well, we'll see what the team looks like next year. Adams isn't going to play forever.

....is he?

I heard rumors DB has a secret project to make Adams the six million dollar man...



I'm stoked.
