In case you weren't paying attention, the rumor was the Pens might trade Dupuis and Godard for Glencross.

2 words, Ryan Malone (guy who took a while to develop)

Yeah, i would definitely like someone better for Geno's wing. Right now we have an over-abundance of bottom 6 guys

Montreal were the biggest losers today. They got a lot worse

Rangers just signed Gaborik

yea, Michael Cammalleri and Brian Gionta made them worse, and despite you blind hatred for Hal Gill he is gonna be solid in there new system.

I have been paying attention, your not the only in here that follows hockey

You would trade a guy who hasnt hit his potential yet apparently for two fourth liners, one with a higher salary, especially when you just lost your top scorer and may lose some others?

Blackhawks signed John Madden.

They are looking better and better. Hopefully Huet can earn that money he is making

assuming they play on the same line, Hossa-Toews-Kane is a freaking deadly line. Now to get someone like John Madden to shutdown other teams top line, your right watch out detroit

Ugh, I am NOT happy with the way this day has turned out. Not happy at all. All of our rivals have gotten better, the Habs have gotten better, the Leafs have gotten better. The Pens have...Mike Rupp. Hooray.

I think you could have made that statement without the snarky comment. Knock it off, please.

Yes, he most definitely is. It's a crying shame that a certain person around here couldn't appreciate Gill for the contributions he made in the playoffs and most certainly, in helping the team to win the Cup. He and Scuds played remarkably well together and basically shut down our opponents' top lines.

Thanks Hal and best of luck to you!
