Latest Penguins Buzz
While Penguins GM Jim Rutherford fully expects to add an impact third line center at somepoint before the trade deadline and it’s not ruled out that move comes before opening night, though unlikely, the Penguins have taken the right route this summer and into training camp in avoiding to make a move to just make a move.
Among guys out there actively available the Penguins could have acquired already sources say is Detroit’s Riley Sheahan. Sheahan, though, is nowhere near at the top of the Penguins wishlist and is not one of the three primary targets the Penguins are waiting to see that becomes available.
“[hide]I’m maybe not as anxious as you guys are to fill that role,” Rutherford said of the third line center role.[/hide]
If the Penguins wanted to acquire a player who doesn’t create high danger opportunities and is more of a 4th line caliber center than a 3rd line center, the team can just sign training camp invite Jay McClement who’s a strong defensive player for $800,000 instead of bringing Sheahan on board for the $2.05 million cap hit.
“I probably could have made a deal by now, but we’ve kind of got our focus on three guys right now,” Rutherford said on Friday. “We think one or two of those guys will become available here, maybe even before the season starts, but maybe not.”
League sources continue to contend that among the top targets for the Penguins remains To read this insider news, subscribe to get “Inside Access”!
I have the perfect 3rd line fix for this team. Daniel Briere… hear me out. His Canadian, his no Phil Kessel, his no American, his no Russian, his only take 18 mins in penalties his last year so his not lazy, his Canadian and his already retired so that won’t come as a surprise… sammich?
Just to poll the audience – does anyone want GWAs tracked through the pre-season, or is that more of a regular season stat? Discuss.
It has become such a driver of how we measure success of the players on this team so without it in the preseason how could we possibly be prepared for whether or not we have legit NHLers
Sam already thumbs-downed us.
That’s cuz he is a creepy, lurking, virginal, racist, bandwagon, son of a whore, francaphone, wannabe Canadian.
Sam – anyone show up for Habs training camp yet? Or does the most overrated fan base in the league still not care…
I’m going to take the as a “no”
I know shitstain has the news before even it’s created but. For other just in case don’t know Panthers traded demers to coyotes for mcginn
Yeah when you live in Divided States of America
Makes zero sense. Anyways, the fact that states differentiate so much make for fun travel. Visiting places like New Orleans and San Diego when you’re from Pittsburgh is a good time. I’d imagine it would be hard for you to do that with you $5/week allowance, so I get why you couldn’t get it.
I was just in Vegas for a week on my Hooneymoon… unrelated I know but since Sam us a racist cunt and hates the US I just wanted to share that and how fucken great that place is. May try to get Tix for the Pens in Vegas and see them there too
so are you still married after the honeymoon in vegas?
Without question, we took in a bunch of shows. Spent more time sight seeing and shit. I mean I can definitely see how people fuckk up in Vegas but it’s just as easy to just enjoy time together. From the pools to dining, the shows to cruising the strip. It’s definitely not the same place I think most understand it to be from the past. I was quite surprised at the numbers of children that are brought lol. While two adults can go and have a mostly “sin free” (if you believe that sort of moral crime lol) trip but… Read more »
If you like fine dining and sports better, there’s no better place in the world. Honestly, anyone from Montreal calling another city “skanky” has some balls on him/her. Every Montreal strip club is basically a brothel.
What a skanky place to go for. Honeymoon.
You must be a cuckholder
Don’t be jealous that your mommy won’t pay for you to go, chubby.
Also – don’t post back to back and then thumbs up yourself from your mom’s second account – it’s frigging embarrassing for you.
I do believe his mom was there… free show under the MGM Lion. She was lying on a beach blanket and encouraged everyone who passed to jizz on her tits and face. Busy girl, she must have been there baking in the sun awhile as she started to resemble a vanilla long John as we passed!
Maybe but we both get laid… sammich the virginal racist bandwagon lol
Lmao, I’d take this seriously if you’d ever been further West than Ottawa. Vegas is a great place for all kinds of shit you turd
Sam takes a shot at the US in the way only he does, ends up with agreement on the mostly US citizen board, but he doesn’t have more than one account hahaha
I agree with D, Martavis Bryant can’t separate from the db. FAIL
I would love to see Eric Haula as the Penguins 3rd line center. He is young, fast, skilled, and talented, His salary is only $2.7 million very doable. I wonder what Vegas would want in return maybe Pouliot, Kuhnnacl and a pick?
New Yoda posts better than the old Yoda.
There’s a high hurdle.
Ha! That was for you Stanchion.
Jeffrey, TK Lovejoy and a 3rd.
Malkin gets it….. Malkin said he doesn’t need Reaves to protect him: “I can protect myself.”
Well yeah his plays like a good already 9.5m and takes penalty like a 4th liner. He has more penalty then points lately
What’s that have to do with being able to stick up for yourself and not requiring the team to trade away a 1st round pick for a fighter?
Nothing, which is on par with the rest of his comments. I don’t mind Reeves on the team, but I think people are overthinking this whole “bodyguard” thing. He won’t be on a line with them, so what’s he going to do? Say someone slashes Sid. Is he going to jump the boards? Probably not, so you play him next time that person is out, then what? They probably won’t want to fight him, so does he just return the favor and put us down by a man for 5 minutes? I don’t mind having him on our 4th line… Read more »
Stop buying into the dumb fuuuck media. Dude can play.
Diego agreed Reaves can play has worked hard on his skating and will be a good 4th liner for the Penguins
Yoda and Maloni agree. That should be good enough for the rest of you….
Scott Wilson no good, Ryan Reaves can play lol… It’s gold
He’s nasty. A 30 year old with a 4th line ceiling.
“A fighter”. You Forgot to throw in the part about being black.
What a dumbfuckk, that’s always been part of his game dipshit. End of the day he is as big a reason as any player on the team that they have 3 cups… god you’re fucken stupid man
No but Crosby does…….Malkin is fiesty but we are not talking fighting its guys taking the slashes……
I think you completely missed the point of Malkin’s comment. But what else is knew.
Yikes. You watching this Pitt game, Dustin?
I was there. Got a nice red face to go with a beatdown. At least he went to DiNucci so we can slam the book on Browne for ACC play.
I didn’t see it, but it sounded really bad. How did DiNucci look?
Weak arm, but he is 10 times the athlete Browne is. He gives the team a lot more options with play calling. Makes some questionable decisions, but I expect those to improve as he plays more. He’s really a smart kid. You didn’t miss much and don’t want to watch a replay.
Out of curiosity who are the other two and what’s projected to go the other way?
I was wondering the same thing.
while the world wants something good these arrogants want to be no part of it typical americans only there for money greed .and good to ruin the world http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/reps-from-30-nations-meet-in-montreal-to-discuss-paris-agreement-1.3592514
Yet your avatar is that of a man you champion who is a big part of the US changing its stance on all of this lol. You’re such a fucken idiot man
this is how we take care of humans in canada
now eat a dickk you fat donut boy shit stain and choke on it while you are at it
Well, the non-francophones seem to care about the people anyway….
Fake Canadian Wannabe American your beloved states is built through racism. And have more intern problems then any country in the world. Your beloved country should be called Divided States of America and not United because that’s just a lie to people
Blah, blah, blah… typical of your kind. Would rather deflect and draw some other issues into the conversation rather than discuss the very real problems in his own backyard that is literally daily news. No one said the US doesn’t have issues with racism but it’s hilarious you’ll bring that up then shit on BLM and groups like that out the other side of your mouth lol. You’re as big a hypocrite as the other buddies you’ve had out here lol
