    Only things I would want in a Subban deal would be McDavid and that 4th overall pick for Dubois.

    And risk your chances of landing another top-3 draft pick next year? Are you out of your mind?!?!?

    Guess we'll find out in the next couple of years.

    A lot of guys are saying the same thing about the Pens selecting Filip Gustavsson with their first pick in the draft (though granted that's not a top 3 pick :lol:)

    "What are your thoughts on the Columbus Blue Jackets selecting Dubois 3rd overall?"

    :rofl:

    I do have to say it's funny watching all the yinzer fans that don't understand the salary cap talking about how the Pens should resign Lovejoy or Shultz... the Pens have $1 million and change under the cap, either of those guys would have to be insane to sign for that. Granted Lovejoy was only making $1.1 million, but after winning the Cup and playing well in the process both of those guys are looking for decent paydays and they would be crazy to not take them.

    Plus we're looking into signing Matt Cullen for another year. As well as Lovejoy played down the stretch, I'd rather bring back Matt Cullen. Ben Lovejoy is probably going to be paid at least $3mil annually after this past year.

    Yeah the question will be if Cullen wants a payday for his last season :lol: Guess we'll find out since he's said he's playing another season and if we don't sign him before free agency opens I would say he is gone too.

    I really, really hope we keep him. He seems like the type of guy that wouldn't be above taking a hometown discount to stay with the team (just a guess). If he can settle for 1 year at $1 million then our forward corps is set for next year.

    What REALLY sucks is that Dupuis is taking up $3.75 million in cap space doing nothing. If he would retire we could easily bring back Cullen and possibly get either Schultz or Lovejoy to re-sign. Instead that money is tied up and we will only have it available next season when he goes back on LTIR at the start of the season.

    It's a case where he should file his retirement paperwork to free the cap space and accept some kind of development job with the team.

    Oilers just traded Hall to NJ for Adam Larsson plus more. I dont know enough about Larsson to know what to think about this.....

    EDIT: Looks like its one for one. NJ just made off like ....ing bandits. In other news, Edmonton is likely to sign Lucic on Saturday.

    If I remember correctly, he was to be the future of the NJ defense corps. An all around good defenceman.

    Very sad to see Subban leave Montreal, but it is a good move.

    Im seeing lots from NJ fans that they REALLY liked Larsson. Solid d man who can play top minutes against the best players in the east. But he only has 1 solid season under his belt. If he can come here and play top pair minutes and be that shut down guy, its a win for us too. Also, we dont see him over here at all so its tough to judge.

    But right now, fans in this city are collectively losing their minds:

    I'm surprised Stamkos didn't get more than 8.5

    Yeah if he was going to accept something that low I wonder what took so long... Can't believe Tampa would have tried to get him for less than that or that term :2c:
