    Guentzel signing

    Seems a little high, but considering his stats vs. Nylander, guess it’s about right. Looks like $6-7M contracts will become the norm for 1st and some 2nd line players, at least before the next lockout and likely lost season.

    Tom Wilson got blown up!

    Karma is a bitch...did anyone see a similar late blind side hit that Wilson laid on Marchessault in the same game that I don’t think resulted in any penalty. At some point, likely this season, Wilson will make another dumb cheap shot hit on someone and his suspension will be very very long and very well deserved.

    No discipline on Tom wilson?

    The hit was very late, and could have been avoided, but hey, it’s Tom Wilson. Probably no supplemental discipline this time, but he is on a very short lease these days his next dumb, cheap hit will likely be very costly in games suspension.

    Scott Darling

    He has certainly not shown that he can be a #1 G when given the chance, and with his AVV and contract, I would be really surprised if any picked him up off waivers. If anyone would, it would likely be the Flyers who would add another goalies to their goalies circus..

    Trocheck hurt

    Looked pretty bad. Likely out long term 3-4 months if broken leg like Justin Schultz.

    Tanner Pearson

    This will hopefully help the offensive side as Pearson is a significant upgrade over Haggy. Haggy is all speed, good forechecker and PK, but has little offensive upside, even with playing most of the year with Malkin. Will this solve all the Pens issues YTD, probably not. A lot of noise about Sprong, and he is not, nor will never be a 4th line grinder. He needs a chance of playing 5+ games with a good center, like Brassard when he returns. He has offensive upside, but Sully has to put him in a position to at least have a chance to show his offensive upside. Will he get the chance, unfortunately does not look like Sully is too high on Sprong. Do do they miss Schultz, YES, a lot. In my opinion, they just don’t have the speed on defense to continue pinch every chance they have. No wing support when pinching allows for way to many breakaways or odd man rushes. This is coaching and game planning, and allow Sully. For now they just need to try too play a conservative defensive game, and hopefully capitalize on their offensive opportunities. Murray simply has to play better, so hopefully he can do that tonight. Sid was held out of practice yesterday, so let’s hope that’s not an issue. If he misses several games, either the team falls apart or they rally and play smart, fast and aggressive hockey.

    Haula injury looks bad!

    Unfortunately looks like the Justin Schultz injury, so if broken leg/ankle, probably 3-6 months on the shelf.

    Rinne signs 2 years at 5 million per

    Think it’s $6.5m AVV...correct?
  11. Sound like a good deal for Vegas? They are sure betting long term on players like Tuch and Schmidt to continue to be high performing players at their new contracts and AVV'S.

    Justin Schultz Out 4 Months

    Salary cap will pretty much prevent Pgh from making any moves to acquire someone like Faulk, unless they can move a similar AVV. It’s now up to Rikola and Chad R to fill the defensive gap unless Schultz returns. Big I loss on the PP, as he was their best shooting defenseman on the PP.

    First Game of the Year - Let’s go Pens

    Must admit I did not think the Canadians were going to be very good this year, but I am impressed tonight. Fast, good positionally, Price playing solid, so they may surprise this year. Murray, 10 goals so far thru 5 periods, know they are not all his fault with some poor defensive coverage, but geez you gotta play a lot better.

    First Game of the Year - Let’s go Pens

    Well this isn’t a good start as Montreal just outhustling the Pens now.
