That's a worse return than the one from Boston.

 

How the hell can the Penguins fit Crosby, Malkin, Letang, Neal, Morrow, and now Iginla under the cap?  Absolute nonsense.

So Pitt will win the cup and then have to shed all kinds of cap space therefore making them crappy again so they can tank again and score great draft picks. The cycle repeats.

Kunitz - Crosby - Iginla

Morrow -Malkin - Neal

Strong Bottom 6

 

Strong Top-4

 

Relatively strong Goaltending

 

Give em the damn cup already, fvck.  Playoffs would just be a formality, wow.

Seems like a solid return for the Flames. They get a 1st in a solid draft, Agostino has been nearly a point-per-game winger for Yale through his junior year and can go to the AHL next year, and Hanowski seems to have had a productive 4 year career for St. Cloud State and will go pro.

 

It may not seem like enough for a star player like Iginla but Calgary only had 1/4 season of him at age 35 to trade. I think it's solid for both teams.

Except not really, not next year at least.  Morrow, Murray and Iginla walk, and they're right back to where they were at the start of this season.  No big UFAs, not next year at least.

And if they implode in the first round again it means nothing.

Unlikely. I think Malkin signs with the Devils after 13-14. Make it happen, Lou!

I think the only team that could beat Pittsburgh is Chicago.

Just when we try to convince ourselves that Lou made incredible moves picking up players for not much... Shero adds morrow and iginla to a team on a crazy streak even without malkin and leang.... Sigh...

Of course for all we know we could make it farther than them this year, who knows but it seems unlikely

Worst comes to worst they will simply traded some players and get good draft picks... Not a bad problem to have

Shero must've gotten bored with his copy of NHL 13 and decided to go ahead and do the real thing.

 

Kunitz, Crosby, Iginla
Morrow, Malkin, Neal
Bennett, Sutter, Dupuis
Cooke, Vitale, Kennedy

 

Those are some stupid lines.

It'd be that more hilarious though is Fleury sh!t the bed again in the 1st round.

If stupid you mean amazing then I agree with you.

A lot of envy on the board tonight. If the Penguins don't win it all, they just gave up a lot of future for some rentals. I'm not ready to crown them just yet. They need to win 4 best of 7's like anyone else.
