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. 

Agreed, no doubt they are favorites in the East but they'll still have to go through a 2 month battle to win it all. Easier said than done.

 

Some info on the prospects:

@coreypronman

"Agostino is a hard working forward, has good skill, tough, protects puck well but he's small. Average speed. Projects as a 3L forward."

"Seen a lot of Hanowski recently. Good hockey sense, average skill, great shot, skating is an issue. Ok 2L potential. Good PP guy."

I just hate the whole "list" thing. You wanna leave fine, but let us get the most for when we trade you. Let us explore all options. Don't just says these 5 teams are the only teams ill go to. Yeah he wants to go to a good team but he is a UFA in a few months anyway. These NTC's and no shows to camp etc are getting out of control

The training camp no-shows is one thing but the teams offer the NTC's so I have no problem with players using them, especially veterans who have families that they don't want to leave or force to move.

Is it possible for the Flyers to still make it to 8th seed?

Yeah, pretty much.  Who knows if they win it all or not (though clearly they're a favorite), but if I'm a Penguins fan, yeah, I'd be pretty excited about it.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I wouldn't go that far just YET.  For one, the Devils are at least playing good enough defense that they can keep themselves in games.  They're not a fun team to watch, but when they execute, they can hang in with anyone...of course, the fact that they can't score and now don't have Kovalchuk means that most games are going to be a fight to win...I'm guessing between now and the end of the season, they go right around NHL-.500...hopefully that's enough to get into the playoffs.  It is what it is.

The Bruins can go fvck themselves for leaking all this stuff last night, without having the deal in the bag.  I figured Chiraelli's been around long enough to know you need player approval first when an NTC's involved.  

 

How long before the Pens get Bouwmeester too?  Or whatever other big name's left on the market?

Geez, so sad that most of you are ready to just not even play the rest of the season. Thankfully the rest of the league isn't just gonna pack up their gear and go home. The penguins still won't win the cup.

Wait, what are we talking about?

This was when it was said that Boston was getting iginla. I was blaming the isles for being dumb and taking that contract off of the book from Boston. They basically gave them 5m in cap space for nothing. But I guess while I was sleeping iginla went to Pitt instead haha
Edit: and i think this means the other eastern teams need to add a decent piece as well now. Pens added 3 pieces this week (although I don't think Murray is any good) and the rest of the easy hasn't done anything to keep pace yet. Idk if pens win it though cause I really think D and goaltending is their stumbling block and they didnt address that.

Devils have done a great job shutting down the pens. I would love to have pens in first round instead of the bruins in the decent chance that we pull off a massive upset and have Shero cry about his all in bet.

Depends who the Penguins will face in Rd 1 because Lundqviist's goaltending might upset this team, especially how shaky Fleury has become.
