8 place right now by 1 point
8 place right now by 1 point
Not a pretty game tonight, Pens got to get out of this funk now or we won't have to worry about the division we will need to worry about staying in the playoff race.
Shero needs to make a trade to spark the pens, because they have no offense right now. He needs to stop basing his decisions on how crosby is and worry about his slumping team. Sid isn't going to be back for awhile, so shero needs to stop worrying about him and bring in players who can help. Sid isn't helping by sitting in the stands. I love Crosby, but Shero needs to do things to help the team
Maybe I'm not taking things serious enough but I'm not worrying at all.
We are not going to win the division with the Flyers and Ranger, so no need to worry about trying
We will make the playoffs, the team is too good and we will be getting a few players back soon (hopefully), so no need to worry about that
I don't know how I feel about a trade, depends on the magnitude I suppose. The team is playing poorly no doubt but its for that exact reason that I'm hesitant to move people. Once we get and stay healthy, the team will start playing better again
ya he has to help his team but at the right price. Dont over react and over pay for a player and dont handicap yourself both this year or next few years with a high salary. for example it would suck to trade for a player and then have sid get healthy and be over the cap so some one cant play or add a high priced player for a few years and affect are ability to resign letang malkin crosby staal or some one else
we are in 8 place right now by 1 point with alot of teams playing better than us so the playoffs are not a garuntee if we dont turn it around soon so i would be worried Iknow I am
The season is less than halfway through and honestly, has any team in the leage faced more injuries than us? I'm not positive but I would be willing to bet were are the #1 or at least top 3. Now that people are returning, things should only get better and don't forget, we still have a very solid team. Malkin, Neal, Staal, the defense, and Fleury are all capable of getting the job done
They should get a rental player that even if Sid comes back, they can still afford him. With a healthy roster, how much salary space do the pens have?
Including Sid? I think under 2M or right around that
According to capgeek, at the trade deadline, we would have 6.631 million in cap space. Idk if that is including crosby and letang though
thats the website

You guys just can't seem to catch a break with all these injuries. Penguins have been such a fun team to watch too. Hopefully you guys can get healthy soon.
So Staal is out 4-6 weeks and Neal will miss "weeks" with a broken foot, probably another 4-6. I really don't know what to do, the team is still talented with Malkin, the defense and Fleury but removing our current second best center and best winger, okay, now I'm worried
