God I just want to punch Owen Wilson in the face every time I see him. Or hear him. He has to be the most annoying man in Hollywood. He's the Fran Drescher of men.

Don't know if you guys have seen this but Reid McNeill blogged for the Pens site this week. Seems like a good kid.

Anyone know the chances of getting something autographed tomorrow? I expect it's unlikely.

I am really excited about the Blueger pick, though. We`ve got a lot of intriguing forward prospects like Bennett, Wilson, Archibald, Agostino, Kuhnhackl and Hanowski, but none of those guys play centre. To have a guy with that kind of skill at the centre position is extremely intriguing and a needed commodity within the organization. It would be unbelievable if he could turn into a Stastny or Krejci type of find in the second round.


Also, to a lesser extent, it sounds like Sundqvist could be a nice find as another centerman, but this time in the big, tough bottom six & agitator role. Of course, I hope we keep guys like Sutter & Vitale for a long time, and that Sid stays healthy, but it`s great to have some good depth & variety at the centre position.

I'm off to take my 5-year-old nephew to see "Brave" then off to the Dev camp. Guess which I'm more excited about.

I'd really like to hear more about Sundqvist. I asked some people that usually have a decent knowledge of swedish players and they mentioned he was very raw but had a ton of upside. Thought Berglund might be a good "best possible" comparison, although that might be aggressive.

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson are both very funny in the right movies. Zoolander for example. Or The Royal Tennenbaums. They are both typically much better when they are doing character acting instead of being normal people. Meet the Parents? Not good. Dodgeball? Very Good.

Honestly speaking, Sundqvist is the player from this draft class I am most interested about. Never seen him play, but he has size, apparently plays with tenacity, and has some offensive chops.

Every time someone mentions Blueger I think of Frau Bleucher from Young Frankenstein.

I've never known anyone that thought Meet the Parents was better than "meh." I guess I can see how a lot of people wouldn't like Dodgeball, but Meet the Parents is about as average as a movie can get. How do you feel about Zoolander? It blows both away imo.

If you like unfunny movies as opposed to funny ones.

Does anyone know if they allow camera's?

Updated Roster

Hey Guys,

Netwolf mentioned something about the Pens handing out an updated roster containing the new heights & weights for the players. I'm not sure if they will be handing this information out to fans going to watch the scrimmage today, but if they do, it would be awesome if someone can post this info.

Thanks!
