Why would he have to clear waivers if he has a two-way deal?
2 months, 2 weeks ago on The Pittsburgh Penguins sign Tom Kostopoulos
@Stillson_14 Agreed. I'm not sold on upgrading the defense over upgrading the offense anyway. Confidence Index playing well. Brooks (last few games aside) playing well. Letang ditto. Despres good. Engelland and Niskanen doing well. Eaton doing what you expect.
I don't mean I see no reasons, just that I'm on the fence about which needs more help. Probably D. Was stout during the cup runs. They were nasty in front of the cage last night. Maybe they just needed that reminder.

@dvo @NickDobda Was definitely a turn. They talked about it on the post-game show, or somewhere, about how Craig was already engaged and the player was not turned. Oh well - made up for the non-call on the Letang play that was a penalty.
P.S. I counted at least 15 times when a player would pin someone to the boards with their foot elevated off the ice last night. Just sayin'... :)

@dvo No dyslexia required. He's Hedman and he is horseless, but "gallops" or whatever Bob said all the same.
Neck sprain is my guess. Rossi was mislead. Fingers crossed that's right.
Could just be a severe case of whiplash. Fingers crossed.

@CheDy_79 Yep. I'm not as certain as Staff that they're trading for a winger. They do have like $13M in cap space though.

You mean Kunitz's goal? :)
Scoring has been weird this year. They keep mis-attributing goals on deflections. Scorers are still in pre-season mode.

I'm awaiting official review of the Kennedy Goal. I don't think it touched his stick. I had Martin @ 4:20 1st period. The goal came at 4:40.

I may have misread "You will not be able to watch the Penguins live if you live in Pittsburgh" as being in general, but that is for NHL GameCenter, isn't it? If so, I feel stupid. :)
4 months ago on NHL GameCenter will cost you $49.99 this season, NHL Center ice $60
I live in Erie, have Root Sports Pittsburgh and KDKA, etc. (Pittsburgh local channels) with DirecTV (and NHL Network, and NBC Sports or whatever Versus is called now).
I have been able to watch almost every Pens game in the past. That changes this year? I don't care about other teams (i'm more a Pens fan than a hockey fan), so I need to buy Center Ice?
Appreciate any helpful answer(s) anyone can give.
Nice sunglasses. They's score.
