with us waiving so many people as of late, clearing up cap room, does anybody else get the sense that something big is going to happen? i'm a big fan, and it may just be my optimism, but i think shero is gonna pull somethin crazy. a couple names comes to mind...kovalchuk, gaborik, st louis. we have freed up nearly 4 or 5 million in the last week, and if we include staal in the deal that would give us roughly 8 or 9 mil to work with. honestly, i wouldnt mind chuk, gabby, or marty on the team. if i had to choose, i would take Ilya. he's proven, and younger. i know about him and sid but malkin would talk to him and make him realize hes a professional so act like it. i also wouldnt be opposed to us getting a couple smaller names with the cap. but, i guess we will find out soon enough, what are your guys' thoughts?

if we get iyla colby is coming with him. I guarentee if we do a huge trade that would involve us getting iyla i honestly think colby will be coming also.which would be huge. However i do not think this is gonna happen. I think your either gonna see st. louis, gaborik or hedjuk coming to the pens. Its still also a possibility that guerin could be coming also due to the fact that that no one has released as to where he is going and sources say that its not washington, boston or philly which were the three places he was rumored to be going. The pens were the next team in line interested in him after those 3 teams i just names. I honestly hope we dont take the risk in getting gaborik because of his health issues. Id rather see st. louis over hedjuk but if its hedjuk i think that we might be getting someone else along with him like a svatos or laperrier. Still think that eric cole is a possibility also.

20+ people are stalking the Penguins forum, waiting, wondering, watching for this one big moment...

Who will it be?....

I think the Penguins should offer 1st round pick, staal, and pesonen for kovalchuck and colby

im saying its kovalchuk and colby and possibly some1 else coming to us in a trade tonight or 2morrow. that would be my guess. maybe gaborik if we would get him for cheap since he cant play yet...

Feel free to PM me with questions, go to the main Penguins forum, there's button that says New Thread on the top left.

Well the question would be what is left if any contract on Ilya and could we lock him in for more than a year, if the answer is no on an extension then I think we pass and take someone like St. Louis who will not command the same money after his contract or Hejduk who would be at a better price.

he has 1 more year left at 6.25 mill

Pensfan
03-03-2009, 10:39 PM
he doesnt like crosby so i dont think he would sign an extension

Don't look for Kovulchuk to be a Penguin any time soon. I'm thinking that Ryan Smythe is a possibility, and maybe Nik Antropov. Smythe has a few years left on his contract so that would be more likely. With the recent moves though, I'm sure Shero is planning something.

J13Cox8
03-03-2009, 11:05 PM
kovalchuk is a dream i know, but it doesnt matter if he doesnt like sidney or not. im pretty sure he wants to win a championship, and with the way things are in atlanta its not going to happen there. he's a professional. Geno will tell him not to be an idiot and just play with Sid. again this is all hypothetical dont think im saying he's coming here.

While BSing with my best friends the other day my one friend who is a Chicago Blackhawks fan he told me of a blockbuster deal in which he had heard in the works including Staal, and Gonchar (which I said eh could be true if they wanna dump salary and depends on who we get in return) and a pick for Martin Havlat, Brian Campbell, Jack Skille. He also told me of a few rumors he had heard about Ryan Malone being asked about but he said some say the asking price is to high.

If that's the only move, my head will implode.

I want to know what the Pens are up to!

Not the blockbuster we're all waiting for....

Pittsburgh Acquires
D Andy Wozniewski

St. Louis Acquires
D Danny Richmond

Who are these people, why do I care, WHERE IS MY BIG NAME!?

I think Tellqvist went to Buffalo for their 4th rounder.

Pens did claim Craig Adams from the Blackhawks!!

Good 4th liner-- he was only making 600K this year.

tsn.ca had pittsburgh's logo instead of buffalo's. Simple misunderstanding.

Another biggie:

Craig Adams claimed by Pittsburgh from Chicago

J13Cox8
03-04-2009, 01:38 PM
ya sorry guys, the logo thing got me. i bet no big deals come until 2:30. this is killin me

03-04-2009, 01:38 PM
Yea that's a big move. lol

TSN jumps the gun some of the time. Ollie Joiken going to Calgary??

why is dominic moore getting so much attention? he STINKS. he stunk is pittsburgh, the only thing he can do is skate AMAZINGLY.

33nfnhl
03-04-2009, 02:20 PM
I think the reason that Moore has got so much attention this season is: he has got more ice time. He is on a bad team. He wouldn't get this much time on a half decent team. He can skate I will give him that.

mrbowflex1223
03-04-2009, 02:22 PM
Do not expect anything big until I would say 2-2:30 that is probably when Pens will make a deal we always seem to panic last minute then he throws everything and the kitchen sick into the deal for someone big

33nfnhl
03-04-2009, 02:23 PM
I just hope Shero doesn't sell the farm for a renta player!

J13Cox8
03-04-2009, 02:25 PM
i dont think he will, or at least i hope he doesnt. Mark Recchi just got traded to Boston

33nfnhl
03-04-2009, 02:26 PM
Recchi going to Boston!!

03-04-2009, 02:44 PM
OK, wth is with this single trade pens did w/sabres? you guys look at their stats? basically a wash. makes no sense. other than richmond is a -12 for his career, and wozniewski is a -4 for his career. making both of them stinky D guys. Heh.

03-04-2009, 02:50 PM
on a side note, Satan cleared waivers, Thomas did too and got sent to AHL. Satan yet to be seen... think that depends on if pens need cap room or not. Adams - Recommendation: Chicago is likely trying to free up some cap space heading into Wednesday's trade deadline. It's unlikely that Adams will draw any interest through the waiver wire. That is straight from yahoo. y bother? he doesnt have a total of 100 pts in his career. Supposed a 'grit' guy.... 'sigh' WAITIN FOR THAT BIG DEAL!!!! =]

For those crazy about the trade deadline hockeybuzz.com
listen to the buzzcast I have heard all the trades so far

03-04-2009, 03:09 PM
do you guys think we are done? do we have the cap space to continue??

mrbowflex1223
03-04-2009, 03:11 PM
I think one more trade is in the works you are never done until 3

03-04-2009, 03:28 PM
i heard guerin was for a draft pick

03-04-2009, 03:30 PM
as long as both GMs contact the NHL previous to the 3pm deadline saying they are in heavy specific talks with eachother, they can continue to negotiate. right?

You know, I would have been happy with O'Sullivan. They didn't give up much to get him, and then pass him off for Cole...
