I'm hearing the pens are interested in Ruutu and Havlat from the Blackhawks but they want Staal in return and that aint happening. Would love to see Havlat on the wing with Sid though

Staal hasn't done shit this year, I'd send him for Havlat for sure

you're right too, he'd look good on the wing

he's 19 years old. alot of people forget that. he scored 20 goals last year and plays outstanding defense.

i agree he is having a little bit of a sophmore slump, but i'm not ready to give up on him just yet

I'm not giving up on him, I like Staal, but they are going into the playoffs and having Havlat instead of Staal is huge

I guess it all depends on what they plan on doing this year and the next 2, with regards to Malkin and whatnot

Pittsburgh is stacked at center and they have Esposito on the way. If they could land Ruutu and Havlat, that would be a good deal.

yeah man..i'm pretty shocked at the way Emery gets treated by Ottawa. I don't really catch too many Sens games but from what i see when he plays the Penguins, he's a pretty legit goaltender. He played his ass off in that playoff series against us last year. Who knows though. Don't they have Gerber on the bench too? I'm suprised they are pursuing goalies as hard as they are.

Emery is a great goaltender. His Memorial and Calder Cups prove it.

If everyone just left him alone and let him do whatever he wants, he would be fine.

Goalies, by default, are fucked up. Roy did what he wanted, Hasek too (well, everywhere but Ottawa) and look what they accomplished. In 23 years of hockey, I have yet to meet a goalie who wasn't weird as fuck.

OH MY GOD I'M FUCKING DANCING AROUND MY BASEMENT RIGHT NOW!

I love the deal to be honest. Hossa and Crosby and Malkin will be the best watch in the league and i think the Pens are the new team to beat in the east. As far as the departed players, i loved all of them but i really think we got a steal. Colby is tough as nails but wasn't offensive enough to play on The Kid's wing. Erik Christensen was another solid, but not great player and i can live with seeing him go. Baddass in the shootout though. Esposito is going to be great IMHO, so that's tough but it's not like we don't have young talent. WOW I'M PUMPED!!!

I don't think Esposito has improved in like 2 years, he may be good in the future but he has to get stronger

Armstrong is solid, but is easily forgotton about when Hossa dangles a few defenseman


Good moves by PIT IMO, as long as some of their 3 - 4 liners can come through

What is the cap at right now? I've been reading they're expecting it to go up to 54 million next season. This could only help the Pens.... I work in downtown Pittsburgh and my building was pretty lively today post-trade.

02-27-2008, 01:57 AM
I believe the cap is at 50.3 or 50.4........

The Pens sure made out all right today...still not convinced they have the goaltending to win over the long haul, but they do look good now.
Dallas and San Jose improved immensly too.
Man the west is looking tough......Detroit, Aheheim, San Jose, Dallas, now Colorado....wow!

And I second that to "Fuck the Leafs"!!!!!

I think Lapointe to Ottawa may be a very underated trade....I know he is passed his prime, but come playoff time, if he can get back anywhere close to his old form, he will be a force for the Sens.

I agree pens dont have the goalie to win the cup.. or the defense to give the goalie an easier time. Right now I think both Dallas and San Jose are the teams to beat. My question to you guys is which teams had the best and worst deadline.
Worst: Montreal. They gave away Huet a quality starting goaltender for practically nothing.
Best: Colorado. Mainly because they scored Forsberg without giving shit up. Even he should be able to stay healthy for the rest of the year. Adam Foote was nice pickup. They have proven winners.
Washington did great to. Huet was an awesome pickup for nothing. Fedorov will be awesome to see playing with Ovechkin. They also took one of my favorite players from my team ( Cooke from Van). I don't know enough about Pettinger to comment on that deal other then it sucks.

kickass32
02-27-2008, 10:33 AM
I think with Huet, Montreal was afraid of losing him for nothing as a free agent in the summer. I guess the figured lets get whatever we can for him.
And lets face it, the Habs going into the playoffs with a rookie goalie, isn't exactly a negative for them in the past...........Ken Dryden, Patrick Roy.....pretty good results there....

Actually, after hearing that Huet was traded.....I was VERY suprised Ottawa didn't make a pitch for him...or maybe they did, but the Habs wouldn't trade him to a divisional team.

Therrien is a stupid coach. He always has been.

Pittsburgh got Hossa to play with Crosby, who is obviously out.

Malkin, Malone and Sykora have been the best line in hockey the last 15 games.

So what does Michel (pronounced Michelle) do?

Breaks the line up and puts Sidney Crosby's new linemate out their for no apparent reason. He changed it up later, but he fucked up the chemistry of the team off the hop.

He was just as dumb in Montreal. Benching his best players, with no apparent reason other than just to show that he wasn't afraid to bench his best players.

i like MT and hate him at the same time. i think he does a nice job gettin the best out of 3rd and 4th line players but i don't think he handles super stars very well. I agree with alot of what you said and while Thierren is a decent motivator and disciplinarian, I don't think he's enough of an X's and O's guy to help this team reach its full potential (Stanley Cup).

His biggest weakness is game management. He is a very good practice coach, but when adversity shows its head, he doesn't make the proper decisions.
