2015-2016 NHL Season

postby Bryan » 07/03/15 @ 11:57

Let's start with Real American Hero Phil Kessel somehow ending up with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Really not sure how I feel about this.

your team is so fucked.
you will be so top heavy (again) and lack depth again.
your gm needs to stop building the team like that! malkin on the block?

it seems like everyone in the metro is getting better and the rangers are fucking idling. i don't know much about etem, do you?

MSL retired too! not sure if you saw.

Saw about MSL...knew it was coming, and it's probably the right move. He and the Rangers can move on, and hardly anyone will remember the way he left Tampa.

As for Etem, I've heard he's a younger and cheaper Hagelin. I think you'll be happy.

Pens lost a ton of players to free agency (freeing up some salary), so maybe, just MAYBE there's hope.

Speaking of salary, did you see the deal BUF gave Ryan O'Reilly? SERIOUSLY hope that contract is not the new trend, or I guarantee we're going to lose another year over it in a lockout once the CBA is up.

i don't fully understand that deal.
i think the cap hit is only like 1m and the rest of ROR's money comes from a bonus check once a year.
i don't understand some of these guys and their greed and i truly fucking hope we don't have another fucking lockout.

His cap hit is still $7.5M/yr. As I understand it, having a low actual salary just makes him buyout proof because his actual salary (and not the bonuses) is what would come off the books. Basically, if he sucks, they're stuck with him.

/racism

jk bry, jk.

jesus christ. of all the teams that would benefit from a 30-40 goal scorer, pittsburgh just isn't on that list. i don't understand this move for them. oh well though, only the standings will tell us how the trade went (in hindsight at that point), but if you get knocked out of the first or second round of the playoffs, it just sucks.
make a cup run, then we start talking about how this works for PIT. until then...we'll see.

It makes sense for only one reason: last year the Pens had no one who could score that wasn't named Crosby or Malkin. Occasionally, you'd have someone else throwing in, but in general, it was either one of those two or someone getting a puck from those two. Hopefully, Kessel rectifies that.

If nothing else, Toronto took like a quarter of his salary... :lol:

Gibbons was serviceable. He won't score you a ton of goals, but he's not a complete liability.

Is he going to be playing on the AHL squad, or do they have plans to put him in the big depth chart?

he might see some time early in the season. i don't see him in our top 9 so maybe there's a spot on the fourth for him. i wouldn't actually mind seeing gibbons run around like a pest and then have glass fight for him. lol.

Players come and go, I just appreciated his no fucks given approach to the physical aspect of the game. Sometimes that was great, other times it was bad.

My brother is happy he is gone, he rubbed it in.

Bringing this back from the dead...

Somehow, the Leafs manage to trade their captain without retaining salary.

If that isn't a miracle, I don't know what is.

Hagelin seems to have had a good run so far, though having Malkin around again would help that. It has always amazed me that all of the high-contract wingers they get as toys for Sid always seem to end up actually doing better on Malkin's wing.

I don't know why Yandle hasn't fit in on the Rangers, but yeah, I hope he gets dealt, too.

Two things:

1.) It wouldn't be a Pens season without one of its superstars missing serious time. Malkin MIGHT be back for the 2nd (or 3rd) round of the Playoffs. F***.

2.) If you're not reading Pucks to the Net, you should:

the rangers statistically play very poorly against backups and the like.
that might actually play in your favor, though i'm seeing on twitter that MAF might be good for game 1.

anyway, remember when kreider injured price? and the rangers had a tough time beating DUSTIN FUCKING TOKARSKI. they're notorious for this.
