One more thing.  Is Hudler the Flames captain yet?


I wish... That would be awesome...

Back to Iggy and the pens. I thought this whole salary cap was gonna stop teams from loading up on star players

The Penguins GA/G is 2.47, tied for 9th in the league, which is just behind Detroit and Montreal at 2.46 GA/G.  While I don't think there's any question that goaltending and defense has been Pittsburgh's biggest weakness, I think the popular thing to do is put too much stock in the Philadelphia series from last year.

 

it's not just the philly series, fleury's play in the playoffs has regressed big time since 07-08

Peter Chillari (?) comments right now are very interesting.

 

Says that they had agreed to deal yesterday around noon, had scratched all appropriate players and called up who they needed to. Everything looked good until Feamster called him just before midnight to tell him jarome had chosen pitt over boston so the deal was off.

 

Check the bruins twitter for all the quotes, but thats basically it in a nutshell.

 

Wow, total bush league. Burned that bridge to the ground!

I just hope this pushes Holland to make some bold moves.

 

That was the best laugh I've had all day. :lol:

Too bad Phillys too far out to sneak in at 8th, wouldn't that be something. As much as I love Iggy, I wish him nothing but the worst as a member of the Penguins. If the Cup Final this year is Chicago-Pittsburgh, I'm quitting this hockey thing and becoming a full time Lions fan :ninja:

Didn't Ray Shero come from the Preds?

 I'd be happy with just getting Dekeyser, but a part of me really wants Gaborik.  It would bring back a sort of feeling I had watching guys like Fedorov and Hossa flying high in the Winged Wheel.  Those guys with breakaway speed like Kane and Wheeler on the Jets are exciting as hell to watch game in  game out. 

 

Message to Ray Shero, good job at the deadline....enjoy crunching the numbers all summer trying to re-sign guys when the cap goes down 8 mil. :devil:



Remember they must insure these players contracts.

In the wake of the Iginla-to-Pittsburgh trade fiasco, Bruins’ GM Peter Chiarelli held a press conference to…to say…well, to say that he’s pretty pissed about how this all went down.

Calling it now, Pittsburgh gets beat in the first round of the playoffs after their swiss cheese defense gets totally exposed. 

 

Their defense is average but Marc-Andre will s*** the bed hard, I guarantee.

Or he can show up like he did in 2007 and 2008 and take over series.

Iginla? Ah, who cares, Samuelsson is practicing ... and eventually he WILL return - take that, Pittsburgh! And Bert, lets not forget him.

 

Pittsburgh gets two aging, beat-up forwards? Yeah, we can match that...

For this team as it is, the trade deadline most likely won't yield any 'bold moves'. We can't be comparing Holland's moves to Shero's moves since the two clubs are vastly different in terms of what they can offer to players. If I'm being honest, this team is at least 2 years and several 'bold moves' from even sniffing the Pens level.

Both teams lost in the first round of the playoffs last year.  For now, it's all even.  The big deadline acquisitions rarely result in a Stanely Cup.  The trades have left me completely unfazed.  I truly don't see what all the fuss is about.

Why can't Holland trade two prospects no one has ever heard of and a 1st round pick (which is effectively a 2nd for the Pens), for Jarome Iginla?

 

I guess they have a GM that actually makes moves, instead of offering contracts to former castoffs.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.
