Lost out to Jagr (not that I cared).

Lost Talbot (I do care about that one).

Might lose TyKe...

Curious to see who they'll bring in/retain.

Kennedy re-signed. They also picked up Steve Sullivan from the Predators. Awful signing.

Yeah really don't get the Sullivan signing, we had cash for a $2.5-3.5 million player, why not Leino, Cole, Ryder, Bergenheim, or Fleischmann. I guess Shero did not want to go multiple years with anyone.

At any rate, maybe its for the best, Sullivan will get hurt and Jeffrey and Tangradi will get more ice time.

Current lines -
Dupuis-Crosby-Kunitz
Sullivan-Malkin-Neal
Kennedy-Staal-Cooke
Adams-Letestu-Asham

That would leave the two kids out of the lineup. It sure doesn't look as good as it would have with Jags on line 2, screw that guy.

I wonder if Shero's magic is waning, some of his recent moves have looked OK, but haven't worked out great.

Just saw this.

Glad to keep TyKe. I'll still miss game-7 hero Talbot though... I always liked that guy.

SS is steady at least... for his career he's a .77 Pt per game guy.

I'm not sure if his style of play is right for the Pens, or if he can stay healthy/maintain his past level(s) of play due to age, but it's not an awful signing.

Although, since he's not line 2 material, I would not call the signing 'good'.

If Sullivan is healthy, he isn't horrible, but he has had a bad back.

What think yous guys about teh Caps signings?

They finally and officially scare the crap out of me!

Laich and Knuble retained, Halpern, Hamrlik, Joel Ward, Vokoun brought in... :shock:

They're clearly in it to win it NOW.

Can't decide who I hate worse - the Flyers or the Craps?
