    Rick Kowalsky and Mike Grier named assistant coaches

    can either of them turn Mueller into a top pairing D? Would help fill a hole...

    2018 Offseason Thread

    Yeah I can't see how anyone would dislike the deal...don't think there's that much to discuss about it, so didn't make a new thread. Maybe people would want more term? IDK I just don't think you give a 4th liner more than 3 years though. Really liked what he brought this past year, felt like he was kind of a replacement as far as l attitude to what we lost in the Henrique trade.

    NO sorry, should have been more clear- I was talking about the twitter account you linked, which is clearly some guy who has no insider knowledge whatsoever, he just wants attention and clicks.

    I know we're just speculating for fun but this is just a total pipe dream, there's no way Ottawa agrees to a deal where the two best pieces (Point & Foote) go to the Devils. Sens fans would burn the city to the ground.

    Yeah he is getting 7x10 minimum, even TOR fans know this because you can go peek at HF and see posts like "the salary cap is unfair"

    I'm not trying to say our talent is on that level, I'm saying we could be in a similar situation in 3 years when Hall, Nico, Palmieri, Vatanen, Butcher, Bratt will need significant raises. We need to allocate cap space to more important team needs such as D. Having a mentality that we have a load of space so "fvck it" is not the way we should go, that's all I'm saying. If JVR would accept a 5 x 6 i guess i'd take him, but someone will overpay with a 7x7 deal and I personally hope it's not us. If they get Tavares they probably won't be able to keep both nylander and marner long term, at least if they want a competent D group. I also doubt JT goes there but that's just my guess.

    JVR just doesn't strike me as the type of guy I'd want to overpay for, I think Ray would feel the same way. On a reasonable contract he'd be a nice addition, but there's a reason Toronto is letting him walk - they have young forwards who are due sizable raises over the next few years, a situation that we'll (hopefully) be in ourselves eventually.

    Right decision imo, people will say the game is getting soft but if you wanna see people's lives shortened go watch mma.

    I agree the DPS is a joke when it comes to consistency... but some things to consider: I thought Kucherov's hit deserved a game (maybe that was a bit of homerism) Wilson left his feet as he's leaning into the hit Wilson has a long history of questionable hits I don't want to take hitting out of the game but if the NHL is serious about head injuries they need to start punishing these hits, regardless of intent. A player is responsible for his stick when he's on the ice -you can get a double minor for accidentally highsticking and drawing blood- I think the same should apply to the player's body, intent can't be the be all end all.

    I don't necessarily dislike either player, but after living in the DC area for two years and now living in Pens territory, Caps fans are so much more unbearable imo. I would rather see 10 Penguins cup wins before I see a Caps one.

    Another game, another questionable Wilson hit- looks to me like he launches himself toward the head... I think he'll get a game for this one. https://streamable.com/c0x8o

    I don't necessarily think it's wrong or biased to say that there are really only 2 teams in the mix, at least comparative to the NHL. I think the fact that they both play in the same conference makes it look artificially like there are 4 or so in - since GS and Houston are both in the West, then obviously one of Toronto, Cleveland and Philly will at least be 4 games away from winning it all, but if say, Houston was in the East, I don't think there's any doubt that 9 times out of 10 you'd get a GS-Houston final. Just look at current Vegas odds if you want unbiased: Golden State: 4/5 Houston: 17/10 Philadelphia: 8/1 Toronto: 12/1 Cleveland: 22/1 Boston: 100/1 New Orleans: 100/1 Utah: 100/1 Compare that to the NHL currently: Nashville: 17/4 Boston: 9/2 Vegas: 9/2 Winnipeg: 11/2 Pittsburgh: 6/1 Tampa: 6/1 Washington: 8/1 San Jose: 9/1 That it should tell you all you need to know, at least relatively speaking... Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if any of the 8 teams left in the NHL win it all, I would be shocked if the winner of GS-Houston (because they WILL play in the WC Final) doesn't win the NBA championship. Anyway, totally unrelated... Anyone else sick of Wilson getting away with borderline hits? I'm pulling for the Pens in this series simply because of him.
