Though I hate losing Luca as I thought he looked very impressive during his short stint up from the farm, I'd be happy to get Ponikarovsky.

Actually, there's no pick involved - it's just Caputi straight up for Ponikarovsky, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie's Twitter page. I personally do not like the trade, unless Poni re-signs and Shero spends his 1st rounder on a winger. That's too much to give up for what could very well be a rental player.

I have to agree to an extent and I guess we really won't know for sure what Shero is going to do until the announcement is officially made.

Damn - Kunitz almost got a clear shot there but was tripped up but hey - we're getting a PP out of it.

Will my Serg get his 2nd goal of the night?

Question for HTG and XT? Do you think this article is accurate.? If it is then I don't really have that big of a problem with fans giving a little good-natured booing to the replay of the goal, as opposed to booing Sid when he was introduced which is asinine.

Quote:
PITTSBURGH -- Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller received a standing ovation in Pittsburgh on Tuesday night for leading the United States to an Olympic silver medal -- cheers louder than those given the Penguins' own Sidney Crosby.

Crosby beat Miller to score the game-winning goal in overtime Sunday as Canada defeated the United States 3-2 for the gold medal. Despite being on the losing team, Miller was chosen as the tournament MVP.

Olympians for both teams were introduced before the game, with Miller receiving the loudest and most sustained ovation. Crosby also received a standing ovation, but it was less enthusiastic than Miller's despite his vast popularity in Pittsburgh.

There was a mixed reaction when a replay of Crosby's game-winning goal was shown on the Mellon Arena scoreboard, with some cheering but also noticeable booing.

Miller sat out Tuesday after playing all six games for the Americans in Vancouver. Crosby was in the Penguins' lineup and assisted on the first goal, by Sergei Gonchar on a power play at 14:58 of the first period.

Actually - other than the fact that Ponikarovsky is a pretty good wing and I think he'd be an asset to the Pens, he's smokin'! You know how I like those Ukes/Russians.

That article is spot-on - I heard the boos myself and as I posted earlier, found it totally disgusting and classless. I was happy, though, that the fans at least gave some nice kudos to Miller - he really deserved it.

WOO HOOOO!!!! Look at Rupp beating the living tar out of Gaustad. Looks like Gaustad hurt his hand trying to land one on Rupp.
