Galchenyuk (not physical, not defensive) had 41 points last year, Kessel had 46 ev points last year. You remember, even strength production that everyone whined about Kessel not producing. Kessel had 5 more ev points than (also) non-physical and non-defensive Galchenyuk had points total.

Galchenyuk had 92 points total over the last two seasons, 45 of which was PP.

Can't wait til December when we get 50 Athletic articles wondering why the Pens can't score.

Galchenyuk is a fine side piece, but at $1.6MM less than Phil? **** that.

Birks is the kind of guy that you trade for "fc's" to give him a chance to do anything in someone else's system before he realizes that he need to just give up and get a job in real estate or insurance.

It’s so one team doesn’t take on an additional contract

AZ fans like this because he's only 2mm more and has three years left.

Did Phil play the most with a defensive pair that included JMFJ this past year?

... there’s a lot more to this than what you know... Pens did not like Phil frequenting a gambling establishment on game day... and with some of the youngsters... Phil basically lost his hunger so to speak as an athlete... toss out the stats and analytics... it’s a team game and chemistry does mean something... google the stillers

So THAT's why he likes Tocchet so much. Now it all makes sense.

So then can we put to bed the bologna about Kessel making his 8 team list unworkable? I want to be traded but I am going to make it impossible to trade me is an asinine position to keep "reporting"

Arizona was on the list. So he didn't need to give consent on this one...can't speak for the other seven...

I think kessel’s power play scoring will be spread out across the other guys without much of a problem. I think his even strength scoring was dogshit for 2 years in a row when games started to matter.

We’re missing his ability to go into insane-o mode, though. It’s not insignificant.

The power play is my concern. After Sid and Geno there are no real threats, especially from the left wing. This trade limits the ability to score.
