He will sign a 1 year/1 mill deal somewhere. Teams have a spot for him, the issue was the cap hit. He ain't good but he's probably fine for a #7.
He plays big, truculent... "Pittsburgh Penguins sign..."

Hockey Randomness

In 2018 Erik Gudbranson signed a 3 year deal ($4M per) with Vancouver. That deal ends this season. He is on his 5th team while under that 3 year deal. Vancouver (57 games) traded him to Pittsburgh (26 games), who traded him to Anaheim (44 games), who traded him to Ottawa (36 games), who traded him t...

mikey's Thread of Penguin Randomness

I didn't see it brought up, but after changing Rutherford for Hextall and Burke, all that has happened is Friedman and Carter in with two mid picks going out. Maybe Riikola being waived was something, but all the other waives would probably have happened anyway. I expected more, and bigger, changes....

2021 Trade Deadline Discussion

I would argue that Vrana and Mantha are (should be, but obviously not to the Caps) basically on par value wise. Panik is a dump. Vrana, Panik, 3rd should have done it. The overpayment was the 1st plus, basically overpay of 1st + 3rd (if you consider two 3rd for a 2nd)

Overpay of a 1st!

2021 Trade Deadline Discussion

Anyone else mildly amused the Caps traded Vrana in that Mantha deal? Vrana seemed to be a one-man Penguin wrecking crew the last couple seasons. I enjoy watching Vrana. Waiting to see what the final total deal is, but it looks like Yzerman put on a Pens jersey used and abused the Caps like it was t...

Well, In that interview around 1:30 Burke said they had opportunities that required guys on the roster going the other way, and they were saying no to those. I guess that hampers what you can do.

Why would ottawa have to protect Gustavsson? I don't know if that's right Expansion draft rules are pretty liberal for goalies.

Reaves stunk for us. It was a bad fit. Even worse, he contributed to Brassard coming here. Two thumbs down
Oh, and we gave up what is arguably our biggest need on the roster at the moment to get him in the first place.

Revisionist history is a great thing isn't it? :thumbdown:

He fought Reaves this year. https://www.hockeyfights.com/fights/n261524 Reaves punches are great to watch. Man, could you imagine if the Pens could get Reaves. A guy that can actually play and at times police some a-holes. Oh well, guess we’ll just have to wonder what it would be like. That's okay....

In my view... The Pens/Flyers "rivalry" was based on the Flyers consistently beating the Pens for years, which i...
