Rossi said Crosby did have the surgery and will be out 6 weeks.

Minimum of 6 weeks is what they’re saying....it’s generally 6-12 weeks depending on recovery...

I'd like to see how the team does through the end of the month, the next 9 games.

.500 or less record, and I think they are going to be forced to make a move.
An injury to Dumoulin or Schultz, and I think they may be forced to make a move.
An injury to Malkin, Guentzel, or McCann, and I think they will be forced to make a move.

The team sits tied with Toronto for 7th place in the East, but they are only 1 point behind Florida, Montreal, and Philly....so the team could easily be in 4th place. I think these next 3 weeks will tell us a lot.

Can Malkin put the team on his back?
Will Guentzel and McCann continue to step up?
Will Bjugstad and Galchenyuk finally show a pulse?
Can the team avoid any further injuries to key players?

I think those two are the key. We're starting to see the team getting younger with Guentzel and McCann and I think they'll be consistent. Malkin is almost like the lead singer of a 70s band. You know, where everyone else has died or left the band and it's him with a bunch of 20 somethings playing instruments.

Bjugstad and Galchenyuk have the ability to be part of the next generation of Penguins but both need to step up and earn that. Especially Galchenyuk. He has the ability to be at least as good as McCann and Guentzel and be part of the core moving forward. If he wants it.

Granted there are different degrees of severity, but I was encouraged when I read that Trotman had his sports hernia surgery on September 23 and played his first game for WBS on Nov.1.

Incredible that he could be playing the entire season with a core muscle injury and still be playing at a point-per-game pace.

No move is replacing Crosby. They need 18 points out of these next 18 games. They can do it.

Not much. He just says a bit of what I said above, that losing Crosby for 1-2 months is much different than some of the other guys they have lost. He says opposing coaches don't fear Malkin as much anymore.

He also says the coaches have been trying to take some of the harder, defensive minute away from Crosby, which is why we've seen more of the Blueger-Tanev-ZAR line of late.

Talked about how Bjugstad and Galchenyuk have done nothing, talked about how McCann is a different 5v5 player at center vs wing.

Mentioned Letang being injured more than short term, again.

Talked about Bryan Rust drawing lots of rave reviews, and that whatever he worked on and trained this summer is really paying off.

Saw the first part about Pens scouts wanted "22 year old included". Were they talking about Dvorak or Garland?

Says Galchenyuk was always going to be in the Kessel deal because Coyotes had to move salary. Also said the scouts pushed hard for Garland but management was focused on getting another young D.


At this point Kessel is on a twelve goal forty point pace, still better than Galchenyuk but not worth the 6.8 million cap hit. Best thing about the deal is the possibility of moving Galchenyuk at the deadline and opening more space for next season. If POJ ever makes a NHL contribution then it's an even better deal.

if moving a guy at the deadline is the best thing about a deal that doesn't reflect too well on the deal...

so probably around new years at best, February at worst, I am fine with him taking alittle longer to make sure everything is right. Hopefully can manage to stay afloat.

Good news about Bjugstad.

His point production will not go down while he is out of the lineup

Given all of the injuries, any chance the Pens would put in a claim for Pirri if still avaiable? If he does clear maybe a trade .Only $750k and can also play center.

Every thing I've heard is that GMJR is happy with his lineup as it stands, even with the injuries. Doubt they'll look to add anyone from outside the organization.

Hornqvist on the ice this morning in non-contact jersey doing drills.

Great to see a little positive progress.

Hornqvist in regular jersey at practice today. Very possible he is a game-time decision tonight. Will have to wait to hear from Sullivan later to confirm.

Sullivan says Hornqvist and Letang are making progress. Did not list Hornqvist as game-time decision, so sounds like he is still out tonight.

Bjugstad was announced as a longer-term injury.

Thoughts on these couple trades to change this team up a bit:

https://www.capfriendly.com/armchair-gm/team/1511058

I really think Bjustad and Galy need to go and be replaced with change of players. Also what do the Pens do with all this available LTIR cash?

Bjugstad is always hurt, hopefully it’s for the year so we can get someone to replace him that actually contributes

You mean hopefully it is shorter term so we can move him off the roster. For the year, little chance he will be gone. Penguins need to find someone that still has some faith in his potential and dump him ASAP.

Sounds as though he is longer term so it is going to be harder to move him. I thought Edmonton would have been a good fit because they have been rumored to be looking for a 3c all year. If it does end up being shorter term how about Bjugstad and a pick for Puljujarvi?
