Buy, although it could be someone like Stewart who has struggled or someone a bit injury prone like David Jones. We won't get someone with the upside of Neal but then we don't need someone that good either. Another Kunitz type (skill wise and consistency wise) would be more than good enough.

Buy or sell: two of Despres / Morrow / Strait end up starting for the penguins this fall.

Sell: They'll be in it during camp, but the veteran players will have the spots locked up. I can't imagine a scenario where Shero goes into camp with out a full compliment of defencemen.

Buy or Sell: Either Elliot or Halak is moved in the near future.

Sell: if St.Louis is smart they'd keep that tandem but if not I wouldn't mind either one ahead of fleury.

Sell. Both are on reasonable contracts and fit Hitch's system perfectly.

You seriously want either Halak or Elliot instead of Fleury? Really? What is your reasoning to this.

I just honestly can't say I trust fleury anymore. After his playoff performances... sure he's good in the regular season but post season is what matters. I know our defense was horrid in this series but its not an excuse for his average to below average play. In my opinion.

did you know that in Brian Elliot's only two season playing in 50 games or more, he had a combined save% of .900 and in Halak's only season player more than 50 games, he had a .910 save%. Careful what you wish for If you want to argue that we need another goalie to play with Fleury, I'll listen. But Elliot or Halak would not come in here and play a full load and se the world on fire.

Sorry to derail.


(the elephant in the room) Buy or Sell: Sidney Crosby plays 60+ games next year?

Yea I guess Haha they just get hyped alot and I fall into it. I just wish we had someone more consistent than fleury.

Buy: I'm saying 75+ he's had no setbacks and looks great. They finally figured out what was actually wrong with him and fixed it. I doubt any lingering effects.

While I think all 3 have the ability to do it, I'm going to have to sell. The trend seems like the league is becoming defensive again so I'm thinking scoring will be down. Plus I think one of them ends up being more of a passer on the PP.

Buy or sell: Sid and Malkin need sloppy hockey in order to win scoring titles and put on a show...

SELL

Buy or sell: Bylsma's system is designed for pluggers, not Sid and Geno.

Sell, assuming you're right about Bylsma using his talent correctly.

Buy or sell: The Pens PP will be an achilles heel again next year.

Buy: Letang can't hit the damn net, and too much passing kills the PP.

Buy or Sell: Despres will start the season with the big club.

Buy... either Nisky walks or Martins gone. Maybe both...

Buy or Sell Kunitz and Neal roll into next year as Sids wingers and Malkin is the center to get new wingers.

Sell: If Bylsma moves Neal off Geno's wing after they combined for 90 goals, just because "Sid is the face of the franchise", he should be canned on the spot. There is no logical reason... not one... to move Neal off Geno's line after the performance they put on this year. That's assuming everyone is healthy.

Not ..... one. If Sid can score 50 with Kunitz and Dupuis and both Kunitz and Dupuis are back, that's the end of the conversation. Now you've got two C in a situation that they're playing with guys who helped them to score 50G. Whoever is brought in, they may end up on either C's wing but it shouldn't have anything to do with Neal. There's also no reason to play Crosby at 1C after all that's gone on this year. Not unless Geno and Neal stumble in the first line slot.

Either

FA - Geno - Neal
Kunitz - Sid - Dupuis

or

Kunitz - Geno - Neal
FA / Dupuis - Sid - Dupuis / FA

Buy. Would be surprised if it's not multiple 30G+ seasons.

Buy or sell: Orpik gets the workouts and rest he needs this summer to re-organize his candy distribution business (new van!), and re-ingratiates himself with fans next fall bringing back the "2009 Orpik". Seeing as how he's really not THAT old yet.

That, vs. "his body is toast; there will be no more solid positioning with free candy."

Sell: We have Craig Adams!!!111

On a serious note, the only time Sid will see PK time under Bylsma is when a key faceoff win is needed.

Buy or Sell: Tangradi will be on the big club next year.
