I challenge you to look through their drafting, heck any other teams drafting record and see that there are hits and misses with each team. Penguins just sucked at the right time and have an awesome team now because of it.

I don't even want to get into talking about how 4th and 5th round picks didn't pan out and how a 22 year old is a bust after a bad season not to mention St. denis is undrafted.
Can you explain Edmonton then? Look at all of their high draft picks. And lottery here they come again.

Drafting is important. So is trading to fill specific needs.

Well.. Just lost a ton of respect for Keith. What an *******.

Quote:
In a post-game interview, 1040 Team Radio's Karen Thomson said it looked like there was a penalty that went undetected following Canuck Daniel Sedin's 3-0 goal.

"Oh, no. I don’t think there was," Keith said. "I think he scored a nice goal, and that’s what the ref saw. Maybe we should get you as a ref maybe, hey?

"First female referee. You can't probably play either, right? But you're thinking the game, like you know it? See ya."

I think this will be the most intense hockey game of the season, with both teams knowing that this could very well be their season on the line.

It's gonna be such a psyche break for the loser.
It's going to be tough for the Jets. Playing the 2nd game of a back to back on the road vs a rested Caps roster.

4-2 Caps.

It really isn't as bad as you're making it out to be. She baited him into it.

I just don't understand what made him so upset. It's not like she was asking a harsh question or anything like that..
I hate macho men, and I love my strong women. Show some respect men...

But Keith never seemed like the brightest one out there..

Since apparently you can see the obvious I'll explain it to you. Edmonton has had top picks but none of them are close to the caliber of player Crosby and Malkin are. The lack of veterans, bad D and AHL goaltending has played factor in Edmonton playing so badly.

My, point was along with other replies was that the pens were bad at the right time got the two best players in the world and that opens doors for players like Iginla that want to play in pittsburgh because they have Crosby and Malkin. Not to discredit Shero or anything he made great moves.

Your point was that the pens had much better drafting track record than us. Just saying it has nothing to do with their 'amazing' drafting, they made obvious picks, and have a GM that knows how to trade well.

I already knew he was a head shot artist, apparently he's just as big a tool off the ice.

Quick, look at his position on wikipedia before it's fixed: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duncan_Keith

I'd be so pissed that my team has such a weak roster and still, it's not bad enough to give me the most odds for a top 3 pick. Heck, not even a lottery pick..

Every non-playoff pick is a lottery pick

Oh that's right.
But I'm guessing it's not an even split across the board and odds are still involved.

That was not my point at all. I responded to a poster who said that the Pens had better prospects and therefore could afford to trade picks for legitimate players who will help the Pens in the playoffs.

It all started with my saying that Murray for a 2nd rounder was a steal.

For what its worth, the Penguins did not get to where they are today because of stockpiling picks. On their roster today, their draft picks are Crosby-2005 1st, Letang-2005 3rd, Malkin-2004 1st, Bennet-2010 1st, Kennedy-2004 4th, Orpik-2000 1st, Despres-2009 1st, Jeffrey-2007 6th, Vitale-2005 7th, Fleury-2003 1st and Bortuzzo-2007 3rd.

Not a 2nd rounder on the roster.

The players who are the driving success of the Pens were acquired from other teams......Kunitz, Dupuis, Neal, Martin, Cooke, Sutter, Niskanen and of course Iginla, Morrow, Jokinen and Murray.

The Canadiens need to emulate the Pens. It will take giving up prospects and picks to get to the level of the Pens.

Edmonton went nowhere with the top pick of "Fail for Nail" Yakupov. Because they love their picks and will not trade for veterans to fill needs........just like Bergevin appears to be doing.

Before Bergevin trades any picks or prospects to "fill needs" he wants to strengthen the team and the prospect pool. The draft and off season hopefully will help that. We also have a lot of young players in Hamilton again next year, we need to get them to NHL level.

Bruins down 3-1, at this rate we'll face them in the first round and the Leafs will win the division.

caps win the division.

believe the jets are basically eliminated, especially with the rangers schedule.

matchups are not certain, but don't see those 8 teams moving around.

Voracek made it 4-1.

The tank battle in Nashville is tied at 2. Please someone win in regulation.
