    Pens are going the opposite direction :lol: Then again they should start getting at least some guys back from injury soon and hopefully start to turn around.

    I hate, I mean really, viscerally hate, to say this, but Corey Perry seems to be a good fit for Dallas, he has great chemistry with the guy he speared right in the nuts a few years ago (Jamie Benn).

    Pens traded Gudbranson for a bag of pucks and a 7th rounder to drop salary...

    He was a +7 with the Pens and the only physical presence on the roster. Another casualty of Rutherford's poor management since we had no cap or roster space and guys coming back from injury. We still have 9 D under contract with 8 active on the roster and Trotman on an AHL conditioning assignment.

    EDIT: I missed it, they also put Trotman on waivers Friday to send him down. It's sort of funny watching the Pittsburgh press dance around asking why the hell the Pens had 10 D and 3 goalies on one way NHL contracts. The team should be good this year, but everybody ignores that for every successful signing or trade there are 4 or 5 things like this that are a complete train wreck and that the train wreck is getting worse.

    I attended Saturday night's Habs/Leafs game and had a good time. Season has been a little deceptive so far, but I am confident they will have a good season.

    Something feels strange about this season so far, league-wide, and I can't put my finger on it...

    *EDITED* Just read some disturbing news about Malkin...

    Not sure what you saw about Malkin? From everything I've seen he could be back Saturday.

    That said the Blues got kicked in the nuts with Tarasenko out at least 5 months.

    That was pretty crazy. I’ve seen Forsberg and Kuznetsov try that last season while skating behind the net. Figured someone was going to pull it off sooner or later.

    That was awesome. Shame the kid only got a somewhat decent contract out of Carolina because he signed an offer sheet.

    Ah ok. Sounds like a company he invested in was run by somebody crooked and they all lost money, but guess we'll see how it shakes out.

    When was the last time anybody has seen a 3-on-0? OK. Now, when was the last time you've seen a 3-on-0 in overtime?? :spock:

    Stars somehow scratched and clawed back to above .500. Pretty happy with the way they're playing the last 8 games. 7-1-0 in that stretch, currently on a 4 game win streak.

    Looks like Don Cherry got fired today because the political Left here is too sensitive and the CBC were happy to oblige getting rid of him too.

    Cherry is an idiot who should have been fired years ago, this just gave *Roger's* (Not he CBC) the excuse they needed to fire him.

    Yeah let's be real, Cherry has always been a douche bag, he just finally went far enough to give them an excuse they've been looking for.
