still curious about what is going to be done with Zatkoff. He's obviously not as good as Greiss but I think he's decent enough that a team MIGHT be willing to give up a late pick or AHL/depth forward in a trade for him. I wonder whether they'll try to flip him or just waive him and see what happens

If I'm not mistaken the Pens still have 0.9 mil in cap space...Paul Bissonnette, come on down

Lee Stempniak went to the rangers for $900k? Wow. That's a steal

@NHD - DogPhishHead Steve Ott is one of the worst possession players in the league and has been for several years now. He's like Tanner Glass with a fresh coat of paint

consider the fact that the Hawks signed Brad Richards to play the same position for less than half of the cap hit

overpayment for Grabovski too. Then again I think we've reached a "new normal" moment because it seems like almost everyone who signed is being overpaid

big overpayment by the Isles for Kulemin. If that's what it'd have taken I'm glad Rutherford passed

@Blackout. if he's gay there is no way he'd come out while playing for the Flyers. he'd demand a trade so he could do it somewhere else

I don't buy Eklund's Grabovski rumor, Grabo is better than Sutter but he'll command more money so it makes no sense for the Pens to look into him

@PezDOY @JenBroflovski @DoobyDoobyDoo Bear in mind the Maple Leafs in general were awful last season. It's the same reason Hemsky's numbers were shit with Edmonton and then he woke up when he started playing with competent players in Ottawa

1 month, 2 weeks ago on Cblog Radio Recap

Reply

@DoobyDoobyDoo he's not Jesus but I think at like 3.5 mil he could be a good signing. Leafs fans loved him even though he didn't score because he's a pretty good defensive forward

1 month, 2 weeks ago on Cblog Radio Recap

@DoobyDoobyDoo the general hope with Kulemin is that playing in a non-Randy Carlyle system with centers who know what they are doing would reawaken his offense, and that he could also play a similar role to what Kunitz played on the KMN line in 2011-12

@Hoss I suppose. i am holding out a forlorn hope that Scuderi could be moved for picks

1 month, 2 weeks ago on Cblog Radio Recap

@Hoss i think they'll have room, if just barely. they HAVE to add another guy. Rutherford has to realize there's a big gaping hole on the second line

@DoobyDoobyDoo @orby i just like him. he is to me as Ott is to NHD

1 month, 2 weeks ago on Cblog Radio Recap

I still think Kulemin is a realistic target that would really fill out the roster. You'd have:


Kunitz-Crosby-Hornqvist

Kulemin-Malkin-Bennett

Spaling-Sutter-Dupuis

Comeau-Goc-Downie


That's a mile and a half ahead of last year, especially the bottom 6 (as long as Sutter re-signs). Bennett and Kulemin are bigger question marks than Neal, obviously, but Jokinen was a question mark too and that went swimmingly for everyone

so...as it stands...forwards look like:


Kunitz-Crosby-Dupuis

Bennett-Malkin-Hornqvist

Spaling-Sutter-???

Comeau-Goc-Downie

(Adams)


not TOO bad, but I'd like to see a legit second line W signed so Bennett or Dupuis could be slid down to the third line if necessary. Gibbons would be nice to have back too, especially because I think the chances Adams gets waived are somewhere in the neighborhood of 100%

@beeline @orby Only real hope of moving the contract is convincing him to go to a team in a rebuild that needs to reach the cap floor

if he can either move Scuderi and sign another free-agent top 6 winger or trade Martin for one, i'd give him a solid B+
