Depends what you want to watch. If you want to watch a team that looks more like the Eastern Conference all star team zip up and down the ice watch the Penguins. If you want to watch a team that blocks shots, pays the price and will do anything to win the hockey game go rent the 94' championship DVD set or watch 2012 NYR highlights

You would need to do the following:

Step 1. Create a time machine. Go back in time and tell Staal to wear a visor the day before his injury. He won't understand.. just make him do it

Then tell Callahan to stop breaking/tearing everything

Then tell Nash to stop getting cheapshotted and concussed

Then tell Girardi to maybe stop blocking PK Subban slapshots with his ankles

Then tell Stepan to not hold out on his contract for what will amount to be a miniscule amount of extra money. Tell him to attend camp, attend preseason, and not totally suck for 90% of the year up to this point

Step 2. Re-enter time machine and come back to the present

Step 3. Profit

If I had a time machine I would just use my hindsight turned foresight to get rich and buy the Rangers. Then hire competent management and profit.

Good riddance. Anyone who thinks this was a mistake, or that he'll be productive on the penguins is delusional.

I'm pissed he was claimed by the Pens.

I don't care if he sucks. I'd rather him chill in our press box than score one point for rival.

This is NOT a positive. It will come back to bite us when we see Pyatt having success in Pittsburgh. They have UNREAL luck. This will work out for them.

Claim the next guy they waive.

Its not about luck. Its about installing players into the lineup that:

1. have a clear role and purpose
2. get to play with the Pittsburgh core, which contains better players than most of the league

Pyatt is making $1.65M in salary. Another team is not claiming him. Nearly $900,000 for the rest of the season. $863,076.
Ahem...

I knew this would happen. Pyatt got size, and tons of experience, he's a decent bottom line player. Another one of Slats stupid moves.

Kunitz was never a 1st liner. Sorry. He was a guy who hit 60 points (exactly) once in Anaheim. Kunitz was a 2nd liner through and through. Only in his 33/34 year old seasons has he put up 1st liner numbers. Mainly because of who he is playing with.

ok, but we're better recovering salary for cap = more flexibility.

Nothing is guaranteed, but empirical evidence would indicate that what we've been doing for the last 74 years isn't working so well. Maybe it's time to try something different.
