I've also noticed that 4x hasn't posted for quite some time. Anyone know why, or if he's OK?

Usually, he'd be all over what's happening in the hockey world right now since he's one of the hockey nuts on this board. Hope he is doing well and perhaps is just busy and hasn't had the time to post.
Oh believe me - you aren't alone in missing Pens hockey. Tuesday night can't come soon enough for me! It's just so bizarre seeing our guys playing against each other.

For today, though, I'll be cheerin' on Team USA in the Gold Medal game against Team Canuck. I won't be able to watch it live as I have a prior commitment, but I'll be recording it on the DVR.

Latest on Gonchar is that he has rejected 2 and 3 year deals, and has counted with 3 year, $15 million and 4 year, $18.25 million offers. So obviously he's willing to take a little less money in exchange for an extra year. Talks have apparently been put off until the end of the season, which means there is a strong possibility that he will end up leaving for another team. I understand both sides here - Gonchar wants either more money or more term, and the Pens just do not want to risk him retiring before his contract ends and then being on the hook for his cap hit if they give him a 4 year contract. Something's got to give here if Gonchar is going to be retained.

I have no doubt the Pens and Serg will reach some sort of deal at season's end. The Pens know all too well how vital Serg is to this team and how his injury absence adversely affected them last season and how his return completely turned the team around on their playoff run and winning the Cup. He loves this team and the guys too much to leave and is very close with Mario, so I'm holding out that both sides can come to an agreement.

Per TSN.ca and Darren Dreger - the Pens have acquired D Jordan Leopold from Florida in exchange for a 2nd round pick. Not exactly the defenseman I had in mind. If they were talking to Florida, why didn't they try to get Keith Ballard instead? Nice job, Ray!

Good move.

Still like to get a winger.

Word is Goligoski is about to be traded. To whom, we don't know yet. Maybe he will fetch the winger we need.

EDIT - Unfortunately, it will not be Steve Ott - the Stars re-signed him to a 4-year extension. http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=311998. Damn.

Ehh Leopold is alright I suppose. Surprising pick for me of course, but Im just hoping we get a winger soon!

I hope Gonch gets a deal during the off season. The team knows how important he is to this team and the output he has as an offensive defense men and the top man on our PP!

I dunno - we could have done worse than Leopold. He seems to be a decent player although I'm not at all happy with his +/-.

I'd be sorry to see GoGo go (chuckle:) but if he can fetch us what we need as far as a better than average winger, I'll wish him good luck wherever he ends up.

As long as they don't trade my Serg. I would wage war if they did!

Mckenzie is on NHL Live right now and he's talking about Ray Whitney to the Pens.

He said he really wants to play for Pittsburgh, but Carolina's GM doesn't think Shero is offering a fair trade.
