Default Re: Letang rejects Pens 8 year / $54M offer

meanwhile Crosby, Malkin and Letang are locked up for the rest of their careers as Pens, I don't see how that's a bad thing

I'd rather see Bennett on Crosby's line with Dupuis, but he'll probably end up with Malkin and Neal.

I'd like to see Despres and Letang paired up now too.

Since Kunitz was signed as well, they'll never break up that line...and with good reason.

I love Cooke...think he's a great player, but be realistic. Shero isn't in it for fantasy points.

....and this is why long term deals with goalies are scary




The New York Islanders' buyout of goalie Rick DiPietro became official Wednesday.

The Islanders will pay DiPietro $1.5 million per season for the next 16 seasons as a result of the move but won't have to deal with his cap hit, injuries or the looming shadow of his massive contract anymore

Will DePaoli@TIOPS_DePaoli
League source confirms Penguins had contact with Scuderi camp yesterday. Team will have to get creative tho.

Yeah, that would be a little tricky. Would definitely mean both Cooke and Eaton gone.

I would LOVE to have Scuds back though. I think I'd be willing to lose Cooke for him if Shero can figure something out.

Do you think the Pens will buy out any contracts? And if so, who should it be?

*Edit* Nevermind, I see from the NHL buyout tracker that it ends today at 5pm, so I doubt we'll see that happen this year anyway.

Scuderi went for the money when he left the Pens the first time, I don't think he's any different now - no hometown discount


but it would be nice to have some more grit, he's a batteler on the boards - and you know how Bylsma loves his old vets, getting him to give ice time to any young talent is like pulling teeth

so

i'd still rather see Despres in the top 4 on defense

ready for Free agent frenzy?

Canadiens agree to terms on two-year, $8M deal with Briere

Bruins trade Seguin, Peverley to Stars for Eriksson

Yup, saw that yesterday...Flyers picked up Lecavalier as well as Streit.
