haha well played sir.

I'm pretty sure that is a purpose. No one will do anything with him in the lineup.

I don't buy it. Most of the agitators in the league will just skate away if he tries anything.

Doesn't matter. Sid wants an enforcer on the roster, and so, we'll have an enforcer on the roster. He's said so numerous times. And if it keeps Sidney Crosby happy, well, that's worth more than anything you or I could say on the matter.

And what this has to do with Tanner Glass, I have no idea.

Not like that's very hard to do. That man skates slower then a sloth would.

when's the last time Sid said that? And has he said he wouldn't be happy with Engellend and Glass handling that job?

Doesn't mean he can actually do anything. And even if he does catch them, all he's going to do is give the other team a powerplay and possibly get himself suspended. Revenge doesn't help anything.

And find me a similar quote that says he's changed his mind, and then we'll have a discussion. Otherwise, it's just another feedback loop here.

If agitators have no fear of answering for their cheap shots (which I agree with), then maybe we should get some agitators on the team. That's my point with this whole discussion, we're missing several key roles on this team. We have scoring. We have speed. We have playmakers, finishers, etc. We have very little grit, and the gritty guys we do have are too small to make a difference.

To the bolded, we lost Jordan Staal and Steve Sullivan and replaced them with Brandon Sutter and nobody. Our scoring, playmaking, and finishing has decreased.

Our ****disturbers are Cooke, Glass, and Vitale. They may not be enough in your eyes, but we aren't getting pushed around out there. If anything, we could use more grit and size in the top 6.

Okay cool. Sid got his way because Big Mac is re-signed. So what are really talking about here?

Does anybody think Steve MacIntyre has the potential to play like a Mike Rupp if he trained hard during the summer I know that's asking a lot but could it be a possibility?

no it is not. he is very very bad at hockey. You can teach a hockey player to fight (Rupp) much more easily than you can teach a fighter to play hockey. Also, MacIntyre is 31. He isn't getting better at this point.

Yeah his skating and puck skills are horrible but his fighting ability is the best in the NHL he can also lay some big hits. Does the pens have any prospect that are big and can play hockey besides Tangradi?

You mean punches, right? He can't skate well enough to actually check anybody.

As far as prospects go, not so much. Jeffrey is 6'1", Sill isn't small I know and Kuhnhackle has decent size.

I'm sure anybody who's 6 foot 6, 250 pounds can hit even with horrible skating, Zach Sill is a gritty player I would want on the pens it beats having Craig Adams. I think Zach Sill can be on the PK too he's a pretty good skater.

he has to catch them. He can throw a hit, he'll just miss more often than not.

Yeah all the hits I see him land are along the boards and the players he hits are either skating slowly or not even skating.

On a unrelated note is Keven Veilleux's career over he's another big body center the pens could use plus he's pretty skilled.

This year is probably his last chance. If he stays healthy and puts up a productive season he could still have a shot at the NHL.
