Random Q, is anyone else happy that the Pirates aren't terrible this year? I watched them get an early lead, blow that lead and go down by a lot, and then tie it up. Is this the year of the Bucks? Probably not
Haha, you should join us in the Bucs forum. Not the most active out there but it has definitely picked up as of late. Exciting times to be a Pirate fan with the team competing and maintaining a high level of play, add to that that we have some quality players in the minors... the days of truly contending are close.
I called 85 wins before the season and I am sticking to it
Why are there never any Crosbys in baseball? It always seems like there are a lot of Gaboriks or Parises, star players, but there are never any super stars like Sid

We resigned Thiessen to a 1 year deal:
Like the article says, I doubt he makes much of an impact at the NHL level but I think it's a good signing and I'm actually surprised he signed with us, knowing he would be in the AHL again. I'm not saying he would have been made a starter but at the same time, he has done extremely well in the AHL and held his own when he was up here. I think he could have been made a backup elsewhere
2 big things today:
Niskanen signs 2 year, 2.3 million annual contract and Colby Armstrong is bought out by Leafs. The reason the 2nd one is big is because the Pens have interest. A LOT of interest
Pens are offering Parise 10 years, between 75 and 80 million. He better sign
I wont lie I would love to see us grab Suter or Garrison for a slot next to Letang. Then trade Martin to Nashville and get them to throw in Radulov. If we miss out on grabbing Parise why not take a shot at offering Semin a small contract. Give Malkin some russian teammates/linemates and keep him happy so we can lock him up long term.
Or make everyone happy and give Sid Kunitz and Parise and Malkin Neal and Radulov.
happy about the nisk deal he was my #1 guy 4 me
