    Bishop left out to dry with not one but two forwards all alone around the net... not one but two defenders dropping to the ice instead of covering their man :facepalm:

    Awesome goal but also an epic defensive breakdown :lol:

    Sort of looked like something Scuderi would do on D :ugh: :lol:

    If I recall correctly, it was a TB turnover on the way out of the zone, which is how they ended up that way. Kuznetsovs skating and puckhandling are so good though. He actually generates speed on his edges in a glide, which shows how efficient of a skater he is. It's fun watching guys like that, they make the game look easy when it's not.

    Yeah Kuznetsov is awesome :agreed:

    There are a lot of really fun to watch younger guys coming into the league right now

    That's a Forsberg kind of goal. Sneaky sneaky.

    Edmonton has won 5 straight and against some very good teams. Hall is seriously in beast mode and Draisaitl is 4th in the league in ppg with 1.30. And to think our entire second line has been injured for weeks now isnt expected to return until next month... (Yakupov, Pouliot, McJesus).

    If the Oilers can continue to tread water and maybe even reach .500 when they get back, there could be a legit shot at competing for the playoffs!

    oh...oh you're not joking :nuts:

    Would they still pick 1st overall? Is that in a contract somewhere?

    Rob Scuderi has been traded to the Blackhawks for Trevor Daley! I'll take it!

    I definitely have mixed feelings on this one. Not excited that we are retaining 1.125 million of his salary. I feel our 3.375 million dollar problem just turned into a 4.425 million dollar problem. Hope I'm wrong. He at least has more skill than Scuds. If he goes back to scoring 16 goals a season this trade looks pretty good.

    My only problem with the trade is the salary retention. Daley is not worth the $4+ million we're paying for him.

    Humorous historical note: the Pens could have drafted Kuznetsov in 2010 but instead picked Bennett :facepalm:

    Sometimes it sucks looking back at draft years. The Capitals picked Eric Fehr at 18th in 2003... Ryan Getzlaf was 19th, Ryan Kesler was 23rd, and Corey Perry was 28th. :wallbash:

    Well, Jagr. We got Mike Ricci out of that draft instead so I don't want to hear it :lol:

    Ooooohhhh I did not know we were retaining part of Scuderi's salary. How long as Daley signed for? At the very least, he's an upgrade to our blueline in the short term.

    Crap Fleury is being evaluated for a concussion and Bennett is out 4-6 weeks. If Fleury is down the Pens are pretty much done unless Murray can be called up and perform at an NHL level because Zatkoff is certainly not at the level of a starting goaltender.

    I didn't notice him get hit last night and he seemed to play pretty well.

    Gostisbehere now has the most OT winners for a rookie since 07/08, and he's played like 15 games.
