Re: Random Penguins Fodder

A couple of Penguins things from Friedman's 32 thoughts: --If teams are allowed to talk extension with Guentzel before a trade, Friedman says that will all but eliminate Edmonton. They don't have the money to do it, and they are also essentially in a dollar in, dollar out scenario. They'd need to ma...

Re: Random Penguins Fodder

Is nhltraderumor.com legit? :lol: The proposed deal would see the Canadiens ship young defenseman Jordan Harris, top prospect Joshua Roy, and Winnipeg’s 2024 first-round pick (owned by Montreal) to Pittsburgh in exchange for Guentzel and defenseman Ryan Graves. Roy is ranked 13th of their prospects...

Re: Dubas press conference 2-21-2024

Dejan noted the following, basically saying it's great that Dubas says we need to get younger, but, the team is able to do that somewhat right now, and the coach refuses. Exhibit A: Jeff Carter's logged more ice time over the Penguins' past 10 games than at any stage of this NHL season, averaging 20...

Re: Random Penguins Fodder

Here's the thing with Sullivan, to which I think Dubas made a point. In what seems very odd, Sullivan has done well when he has lesser talented, younger players on the roster. This is where the idea that he'd be a good coach for a rebuilding/retooling team comes from. A year or two ago, when we had ...

Re: Dubas press conference 2-21-2024

I missed the very beginning so I went back again. Sure sounded like Dubas has said to Jake he's gone. Agreed, that Sullivan (publicly, at least) is Coach for Life™. Emphasis throughout the press conference was on getting younger and having the core teach the noobs. Emphasis on getting younger is gr...

Here's word for word what was said about Guentzel, per Pens Inside Scoop: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/GG4o0WSWEAATVJs?format=png&name=small It sounds like he's gone. And, if Dubas is really smart, he'll let teams talk to Guentzel's agent about an extension...which could dramatically increase the...

I tried to ask it when they were shutting down the presser early, that's why they started to shut it down and then came back for 3-4 more questions. They didn't want Dubas to be exposed to my great plan. :lol:

Re: Points Out of Playoffs Spot tracker

Adding to my previous thoughts…The other thing is that had the organization used WBS properly, there would be Scott Wilsons that you plug in the lineup. With a 1C drafted 6 years ago then Sid at 2C faces 2nd d man pairing. 71 at 3C faces 3rd pairings. But we remained super stagnant. Just a general ...

Re: Points Out of Playoffs Spot tracker

Going into tonight, the Penguins had 55 points and 30 games remaining. 60 possible points up for grabs, and, forgetting for a minute what the teams ahead of them are doing, the team probably needs 95 points, or 40 out of 60 points, to make the playoffs. Seems highly unlikely, as that is a .666 point...

Re: FLPensFan's plan for Dubas

Conspiracy Theory: Sullivan and Reirden haven't been fired because they are doing exactly what has been asked of them. Say all the right things publicly, get to our game, dress the best lineup to win, yadda yadda, but behind the scenes, the organizational goal is to start building for the future. Ne...

Including today, 18 days remain until the trade deadline, March 8. Will the Penguins secure a playoff spot by then? By March 8? No. The is zero chance they will be in a playoff position on March 8. Also, consider the following: 1) In terms of "win streaks" - the Penguins have won consecut...

Re: Random Penguins Fodder

I still cannot believe Jake got injured. I wish Dubas had seen the writing on the wall earlier like the rest of us. I still believe it is not going to diminish his trade value. If acquired at the trade deadline, he misses a game or two tops, if his recovery is on track. Part of the reason he cannot...

I'd keep Ned and try to resign him. Explore moving Jarry in the off-season besides Guentzel he's our best trade piece I'm not opposed to moving Jarry, but I just don't see it happening at the trade deadline. Trust me, cap space is tight. It's rare to see teams trade major pieces off their roster go...

If I were Kyle Dubas for 30 days, this is the plan that I would execute for the Penguins: (extremely long post...you've been warned) 1. Dubas calls in Sid, Geno, Letang to his office together. He explains that changes need to be made in multiple areas from coaching to players. I do not plan a full g...

Re: What do you think the Pens will do with Jake by the trade deadline

Crosby basically says he's not getting involved in anything related to Jake's situation here. Dubas is the GM, Crosby is the player. He's not going to go tell Dubas how to do his job, demand Jake stay, or want to leave if Jake is traded: https://theathletic.com/5286060/2024/02/19/penguins-guentzel-...
