    The guy is one of the best goal scorers in the league and you see him as a potential 3rd liner :scratch: I will almost guarantee he will be on the top line with Crosby at least initially.

    Or 2nd. If they can fix him up, he could gel on the first line, but the way he was playing on the Leafs there he would have no business being anywhere near the Penguin's first line.

    Let me introduce you to somebody named Perron... :lol:

    That said I'm curious to see how he does. It seemed like regardless of what he did in Toronto he was crucified by the press... Hell the guy is 6' 202lbs hasn't missed a game in five years and is one of the fastest skaters in the league and people are bitching about him being fat and out of shape on Facebook :facepalm:

    David Perron is going to be lethal this coming season. Give him a full training camp with the Pens and I think he'll find his footing. James Neal did even less than him before scoring 40 goals.

    Leaf fans always talk about how loyal they are, but we certainly seem to bitch about literally everything everyone involved with our team does. Whether they deserve it or not.

    Kessel was the leader goal scorer at the Olympics for ....'s sake. It wasn't him that was letting the Leafs down. The complete lack of support, defense and mediocre goaltending might have had just a little to do with it.

    ^ That kid is going to be something else to watch. He's like a young Scott Gomez.

    Dallas looks to be a serious contender next season. If they were to secure just one more top-pairing defenseman, I could see them going deep into the playoffs. But as it stands I can't see Alex Goligoski quarterbacking them to greatness.

    I think Dallas is still 2 good defenceman away from even making the playoffs, IMO. Their back end killed them last season.

    Dallas should be interesting... but the real question is can the Oilers still manage to suck with a new GM, coach, and the 4th #1 pick in 6 years who is supposed to be the best player drafted since etc etc :lol:

    I'm not going to pretend like I have ever been an Edmonton fan, but even I am excited for them this coming season.

    Well I'm pretty pissed myself. There were 8 groups total wanting to put a team into the league (3 Seattle, Las Vegas, Toronto, Quebec, Houston, Portland), and half of them were within a couple hour drive of me, and a grand total of zero of them even put in the application.
