No roster limit after trade deadline.

Baby Pens are five points out, with three games left...

It was so innocuous that I don't even remember the actual slight itself. But, sjw n'at.

Yeah, it was just Pierre being excited that someone was near him...because it was a woman and not Henrik Zetterberg, it's a semi-thing...

I know there is no roster limit, but is there a cut off date that a player needs to be on the NHL roster to be available?

No. Just needs to be on reverse list by 3 pm on trade deadline.

See: Chris Kreider debuting as a pro in the Stanley Cup Playoffs; long history of "Black Aces", etc.

And weve been complaining about him for years

And Edzo

Honestly NBC has some terrible analysts. Their play by play guys are good though

NBC is just awful across the board. Tirico, Diffey, their hockey lineup. The only thing they do right is SNF.

I do like it when they have the Canes PBP guy in the booth, if I'm being honest.

Filip Hallander (Timra was relegated, despite his best effort), Calen Addison (Lethbridge out in the first round), Jordy Bellerive (see Addison), Justin Almeida (Moose Jaw eliminated first round)...
FWIW appears the Pens can loan him to another SHL club next season.

is it possibly related to the future of the women's pro league and the league's increased investment?

I think that's an underlying piece. But, like anything else, you just need to "make it a normal thing" for it to be normal...we see that with other social movements...the less you make it a big deal, the less you highlight how "brave" or "pioneer" someone/something is, the more it falls in the ordinary spectrum...

I don't give women announcers a second thought, Cassie Campbell-Pascall on HNIC does a fine job, AJ Mleczko has fit in seamlessly...the issue for me is just being good at your job...Coyne stunk, she may get better...Leah Hextall stinks, she may get better...and in the same vein, Jason Witten stunk...and quit...to our benefit. Just be good at your job, I don't care if they put an octopus behind the mic, if he calls a good game, I'm sold...

If you put people in a position to fail, the internet seldom lets you forget it...so then you're back to highlighting it...and then when you highlight and it's something that's "abnormal", then you get fireworks...it is not hard to figure out who is good and bad at being an on-air talent...

This is how I feel. Starting someone out with no experience at the very top tier is a disservice to that person and undercuts the exercise as some kind of social accomplishment. It's a really bad look for everyone.

My son was born in May 2006; he's seen the Penguins make the playoffs every year he's been alive (same with the ten year old, obv). Pretty cool.

Meh. I grew up watching Lemieux and company, then had to live through the Rico Fata and Dick Tarnstrom years. I honestly don't think I'd have appreciated these Cup teams as much had I not gone through the years of struggle that were the early/mid 2000s.
