mikey's Thread of Penguin Randomness

Our drafting is really frustrating and, worse, very unimaginative...I need to be our U.S. guy soon because we're taking a lot of suckers bets... And then the Euros - man, if you're gonna go deep into these leagues, at least draft guys that have talent...I think that's a fair ask. I'm not saying I'd ...

mikey's Thread of Penguin Randomness

For sure, but there's a little caveat about that too...there's a hell of a lot more guys that played center in junior that failed down to wingers than there are wingers that became centers. So, if there's a tie, it goes to the center. Again, that's irrelevant probably, as I don't think we're going i...

mikey's Thread of Penguin Randomness

Mikey, draft question: Are you pretty high on Miroshnichenko despite the Hodgkins diagnosis? Seems like the type of player that could drop to the Pens who could have been a top 10, maybe top 5 This is an excellent question. I don't think he was ever a top 5 guy, I could buy that maybe he would have...

I don't think Malkin could do better than $9.25 mil per. I don't think Letang could do better than $11 mil.

He's a hell of a talent...it wasn't really about the technical progression, it's just about him wanting to play. I mean, look at his playoffs...I'm not sure he's a guy you can rely on to really win with...but he can definitely play the game at a high level... Maybe like Panarin, but also the Panarin...

His call up in general surprised me a little actually...getting a six-game check probably ought to have been enough to keep him on the hook for another year, if we were going to qualify him at all...which I have my doubts on.

CuJo played on way better teams and lost way more...not to say he was trash, but he was clearly a second-tier goalie where as Luongo was a first... He stole a couple of first round series in his prime...he was a little bit unlucky when his ship finally came in - playing for Detroit -> ran into Gigue...

Kind of a bummer based on current cabinet of younger players. I thought this kid was going to get a shot next year. I think he's not interested in going back to the AHL and I get that. No big loss, as he probably wasn't going to be an NHL player...but my man played 65 AHL games (14 points), maybe y...

Testing the market implies they don't know what other teams are willing to pay. I have a hard time believing that. When you're a big free agent, teams really try to woo you, they wine and dine you...they really sell you on the perks of playing in that city, with that organization... It's not like a...
