Buy. Bylsma can't keep only giving him time when someone is injured and play him behind aging veteran has-beens like Richard Park.

Buy or Sell: Sid and Geno both break 100 points next year.

Sell, powerplay too inconsistent to pull this off.

Buy or Sell: Penguins will have fewer that 25 Fighting Majors next year.

Sell. I think they will have less than 25 games with fights, but those Philly games could get ugly.

Buy or Sell, Matt Cooke will be suspended next season?


*** By the way, I completely disagree with the last poster. I think Sid and Geno will have over 100 points each even if the PP is at 15%. Bank it.

Sell: Matt Cooke has changed for sake of remaining in the NHL.

15% on the PP won't be enough to get both players over 100 points. 18/20 or more would be required if not more.

Buy or Sell: We will all be pissed at some of the moves that will happen from the draft to July 1st. Things that just don't make sense due to having so many quality prospects on defense and in the NHL?

Buy... The Pens have put so much money into their defense and drafted so much defense and it just looked so bad last year. Now they have to retool the D and I'm already pissed. I also think that when/ if a Staal trade happens it will be underwhelming.

Buy/ sell... The Pens draft another defenseman with their 1st round pick again.

Sell- Shero has alternated in the past, unless someone really highly ranked drops far, i see us drafting a forward in both of the top 2 round. Pearson/Sissons and then Frk hopefully.

Buy/Sell: Letang gets nominated for the Norris next year

Sell: I don't think Letang will ever be nominated with guys like Suter, Weber, Karlsson, etc. in the NHL.

Sell ... Solid 5/6 who can fill in as a #4 if needed but not a true #4

Buy or Sell ... The upcoming season will be delayed by a few weeks due to CBA issues but there won't be another lockout.

Sell: Hopefully there's no delays and more importantly no lockouts.

Buy or Sell: Giroux will have a mediocre year next season.

Sell. That's a stretch, as much as I respect the Engo-nator. I just want to see him beat the crap out of a few more people who deserve it.

A) I cannot support drafting a player with no vowels in his name. Even Jagr had a vowel.

B) Buy, if he's healthy most of the season. His hip may end up being a real problem.

Sell. He may occasionally do it but not with any regularity. Neither will Geno. That said if the coaches wanted it and reduced ES minutes accordingly I'd be all for Sid training to do that. If he wants to be a great PK he will be a great PK. And dangerous like the scorpion who sleeps in your shoe.

Sell - He's got the Kane punk factor it seems but he's a legitimate all-star forward. He's going to rack up the points any year he's healthy and has good linemates.

Sell: He's a real interesting player I think. While he might not get 80 pts, I see him finding success at the game. It's like it was made for him or something.

Buy or Sell: Ray Shero will finally make room and trade for Colby Armstrong.

Buy ... Gonna buck the trend here I think his performance this year will lead to other teams taking a harder look at him, and that will translate to fewer points ... especially since so many of his points this year were secondary assists

Going to have to sell that one. Even though I like him, I think Nisk and Despres get more time before he does.

Buy/ Sell... The Pens problems on defense is more about the system than the manpower.

Buy: To my eyes, a number of the goals they gave up were spawned by irresponsible passes designed to get out their quick transition game. It's a high risk/high reward strategy that inflates the defensive leakage with the benefit of better offense.

Philadelphia was one of the few teams fast enough to take advantage of it, a bad matchup, and with Fleury playing below average, they were exposed.

Buy/Sell?: The Penguins make their move on Staal before the draft.

Sell. From what Staal has been saying, he's happy here. I think he'll take a contract at what his comparables are at over a long term deal.

The thing with all these articles that are coming out about Staal are mere speculation by reporters.


Buy/Sell: The Pens go into next season with a near identical roster that they came into last season with.

Buy. I think he's a cost effective option for a 3rd line role, especially if we're going to keep Staal. He and Sully had good chemistry.

Buy/Sell: Pens make a splash in free agency.
