Yup. It’s a slow night when the beat writers are tweeting out stuff like this... (from Mackey)

“Draft floor update: Looks like Mike Sullivan just finished a can of pop. (No, it's not called soda.) Couldn't see whether it was diet or regular.”

Someone needs to interview JR and ask him if his fans should go to bed.

I think I'm spending the next 30 minutes unfollowing every hockey reporter out there talking up all these trades and moves. I realize only a small percentage happen, but this is crap. I expected a good amount of movement. Maybe more tomorrow, but, I'm not holding my breath.

Dave Molinari never speculated on trades and moves. Of course , from a different era.

Rutherford was not going to trade assets for picks that will help the team in 5 years. The Pens are in win mode during the Crosby and Malkin era. Post Crosby and Malkin era will have to fend for itself.

New offseason game plan:

1) Find takers for Sheary and Hunwick, getting draft picks in return
2) Sign Grabner to play LW
3) Sign someone to play on the 3rd pairing
4) Resign Rust, Sheahan, Oleksiak, Sprong, Jarry. Let Kuhnhackl and Simon walk.

Jason Mackey spoke to Sullivan tonight about his relationship with Phil. Sullivan described as fired up:

“A lot of what’s been written, in my estimation, from my standpoint, has been false. I know where my relationship is with Phil, and I certainly have a comfort level with it. I think Phil does, too.”

“Have we had ups and downs through the course of three years or differences of opinions in certain situations? Of course. I think you could say that coach-to-player in a lot of situations. My commitment to our players is always to try and find common ground. Phil’s no different.”

One of the things that Sullivan finds most interesting about this whole thing is the idea that problems cropped up because Kessel wanted to play with Malkin, and Sullivan wouldn’t allow it. “That’s not true,” Sullivan said. “Where did that come from? Who said that? Phil played a lot with Geno. Phil played most of the Philadelphia series with Geno.

The issue of whether or not Kessel was hurt ratcheted up a couple hundred notches during season-ending press conferences for Sullivan and Rutherford. Sullivan said what was bothering Kessel wasn’t significant. Rutherford said injuries finally caught up to Kessel. Those are both true, Sullivan insisted. Kessel was banged up — an accumulation of a hockey played over the years — but the Penguins had a lot of guys who weren’t anywhere near 100 percent. “There was no intent on my part, or Jim’s part, to create the speculation or controversy that resulted from that,” Sullivan said. “We were both trying to be straightforward. I think we both said the same things in a different way. People read into that. We can’t always control how people speculate.”

“I’m glad you gave me an opportunity to set the record straight because I don’t think it’s fair to Phil,” Sullivan said. “He doesn’t have to read this stuff. I think sometimes words get put into my mouth that simply aren’t true. I have so much respect for Phil Kessel. I really like Phil Kessel as a person and an athlete.

So, who was it that made that up, er, I mean, said that?

Orpik is basically a salary dump but him and Grubauer for just a second? Hope the caps cab resign Carlson with that extra money available. Otherwise Washington lost this one handily.


No one would take that orpik deal. And I was thinking Washington would get a third at most for Grubauer. So to get a second and dump orpik. Super win for Washington.

LeBrun says Avs likely to buyout Orpik....wt×?


Makes sense. Orpik is a disaster no matter what Pierre try’s to sell.

You want even better.....Caps GM says if Orpik is bought out by Avs, they have not ruled against bringing him back to Washington. :shock:

I don't know, there is a really nice Irish Pub near the AA Arena, so maybe they were talking about Sheperds Pie and Guinness. It's right on the rail line, so easy hop.

Wasn't he saying a couple of weeks ago that Kessel was going to be traded?

Why do you listen to these people. They're just throwing out crap trying to get people to listen.

DK's site has been steadfast that there would not be any major moves by the Pens. He's been saying the same thing for a month now.
