    Yeah I get what you means, still sounds like a gamble by assuming he'll be an 80pts player in the next 2-3 years. If he does, then we'll be able to consider it a good contract.

    Time will tell!

    I look forward to watching the Pens get taken apart by Tampa tonight :lol:

    Loving that O'Conner, who was literally one of the best players in camp, only made the roster because of injuries but Simon and Rodrigues were locks :facepalm:

    :rofl:

    Tampa just looked exhausted. The Pens played a great team game, but it definitely didn't look like Tampa from the last two years. I'll be curious how they do against Florida tomorrow night.

    I loved Corey Perry being on the ice for the banner raising, probably thinking "yeah yeah I was there too" :lol:

    Got to say I love watching yinzer fans online... Jarry gives up 2 6-on-5 goals where he was screened for both and "he almost lost them the game", DeSmith gives up 5 including the OT game loser one-on-one with the shooter and goaltending wasn't the problem :rofl:

    I'm just waiting for Jarry to move on to a new team so we can complain that we miss him like we did with Fleury.

    I haven't watched more than a single period's worth of any single Habs game. Habs Lite this year, 100% real vanilla.

    I think they even forgot the vanilla. 100% plain, saltless and fat free!

    Less than a goal per game would already be worriesome, but the 4ish goal per game against makes it even scarrier, they can't score and even less stop the other team from scoring.

    4 games in folks, gonna be a long season at this pace

    Did not expect the Stars to beat the Penguins last night, pleasant surprise. Stars have looked pretty terrible in most of the games but they were able to pull it together a bit last night. Fun game to watch, though the turnovers in OT took at least 20 minutes off my life.

    I'm not invested enough to lose time off my life this season :lol: Pens have been better than I expected but I also expect them getting destroyed when they play the better in-division teams.

    They're also missing 3 of their top 6 right now, including Crosby and Malkin.

    Kuznetsov has been good so far, like 2018 Playoff good. However, I’m worried because that version was powered by Cocaine.

    Dallas has played the most 1 goal games in the league for a long time now, it's stressful being that close every night.

    Yeah Pens have been pretty good so far, they're getting my hopes up :lol:

    EDIT: ugh Jarry and Carter are in COVID protocol so now Pens top 3 centers and starting goalie are out... if this is what a Habs fan feels like I don't like it :rofl:

    In that respect fair enough, but undefeated in regulation vs winless... you don't know what this feels like.

    4 goals in 5 games (not a single game with more than 1), 30th ranked PP (5.3%) and 30th ranked PK (55.6%).

    So essentially the Wilkes-Barre Pens vs. the Leafs on Saturday. Should be fun.

    I was a Pens fan in the years they finished at the bottom of the league to draft Crosby, Malkin, and Fleury so sure I do... it's just not that bad this year :lol:

    Jarry is back, confirmed false positive. Carter is out though.
