I liked Ehrhoff and don't know how that didn't work out...Leopold is one of those players whose best asset is skating though, I don't think I was over the moon about him...

Vatanen has skill...

Again it’s surface level. If he’s so good and useful it would make sense that someone would have signed him. Especially now saying he might have to take a 1 year “prove it” deal. Given I barely have time to watch and research hockey anymore but I also don’t think I’m off-base considering he’s just sitting, clearly no one was chomping at the bit to sign the guy.

Just watched some highlights. I change my mind, odd that not one team wouldn’t have grabbed him up. Seems to have good instincts on the PP, didn’t look like an overly great skater but seemed to have smarts. Also as you said there’s skill there as he was making some slick moves you don’t usually see from a dman

I think he just got squeezed. He will land somewhere and be very useful.

Are there any players that Jim likes? Honest question. I’d take Vatanen on my team any day.
So I guess that means that you weren't very excited about Ehrhoff or Leopold, since you went straight to me not liking players... which isn't what I had said.

I’m going to take you dodging the question and trying to turn it to me somehow as you hate all players.

I'd rather have Jordan Leopold from 2010 or Christian Ehrhoff from 2014 (or whenever we had him) than Cody Ceci in 2020.

Well, you didn't as me the question so I couldn't have dodged it, but it was a dumbass question to begin with. Yes, there are plenty of players that I like. I just don't get excited about general meh guys that just happen to be available, or players that bloggers mention so then everyone on a message board jumps behind.

We had Bylsma as coach?

I think he worked decently until his concussion. Then they rushed him back and he got injured again. Then he sucked. Or perhaps I remember it incorrectly...

Pensburgh are doing their annual Top 25 Under 25 thing, and it's not pretty. They are down to #8 and so far there is very little to get excited about. Very little. I'm guessing the remaining players are Poulin, Legare, Joseph, Pettersson, Kapanen, Marino, and McCann. Le sigh.

I’m assuming Blomqvist and Clang will be in there too. O’Connor??

Who the **** is Cam Lee?
Cam Lee is a smooth-skating defenseman that the Penguins had their eye on for a bit, he participated in Pittsburgh’s summer 2019 prospect camp as an invited undrafted free agent. The Pens and Lee took the relationship to the next level once Western Michigan’s season was over by signing Lee to a two-year entry level contract.

Blah. I prefer Cam Lee’s when they’re not Asian girls named Camly.

This would be a good time to refresh me on who we really don't know much about...did I ever watch O'Connor...? Cam Lee is someone I need to watch...

I'm watching American this week, so I can throw them on the pile...

Of the undrafted college dmen we signed, Mascarpone sounds like the most promising.

Versatile for sure. Effective in sweet and savory situations.
