I'd rather let a young player take the role of 3c than giving it to an old retread. I don't need stats to back that up. It's just what I would prefer.


It isn't a college class thing. Saying someone sucks as the ENTIRE base of your position on a guy is just, well to go with your analogy, primary school. As I mentioned, no player in the NHL sucks, that is why they are in the NHL. However, your comment "If you don't like it...grow up and move on." in defense of people being unable to put together a coherent though process is quite funny. Take a shot at people supposedly wanting college level communication abilities by telling them to grow up :thumb: . Yes, come back down here to a 3rd great level! Girls have cooties, player X sucks, excuse me while I go eat some paste. :fist:

He made over 4 million with the Preds last year so he isn't coming here at half the salary.


You honestly don't know that. I suggested him a few weeks back. It's worth exploring which I'm sure Rutherford has already.

Fisher sucks.

We'd have

Geuntzel | Crosby | Rust
Sheary | Malkin | Kessel
Hagelin | Duchene | Hornqvist
Wilson | Rowney | Reaves
x Kuhnhackel

Dumoulin | Letang
Cole | Schultz
Hunwick | Ruhwedel
x Pouliot

Murray
Niemi

Assuming $4,000,000 for Dumoulin and $3,500,000 for Sheary...and with no retention on Duchene...

The above 22-man roster leaves us with $838,333 in cap space.

Unless there is some other move planned (Hagelin or Sheary out for a D...plan for Johnson/Sprong/ZAR to step in)...the whole thing (to me) hinges on what the coaches think of Pouliot. If they truly think he's ready to play every night on NHL ice, than I could see them hitting go on the rumored Duchene trade involving Maatta (of course assuming that COL agrees to it).

Thoughts on Pouliot being the hinge here?

As you state above, it would fit this year. 833K is enough to call up another player from the minors, so they still have flexibility. The issues are really 2-3 years down the road.

I'm going to assume giving up Maatta, Jarry, and a 1st, the Penguins are going to resign Duchene. For now, let's just say he agrees to stay at 6M for another 3 years.
---2017-2018, Hornqvist needs to be extended. Really not sure where his value. Looking at what his numbers were before he signed his current deal, he has stayed really consistent. The economics of his numbers and salaries today they probably push his salary up to 5M. But then, his usage with Pittsburgh has gotten a bit whacky....often playing 3rd line. This is one issue.
---2017-2018, Bryan Rust is an RFA. He's likely going to jump from 640K up to 2.5-3.5M if he has another solid season like the past 2.
---2017-2018, Ian Cole is a UFA. If the Penguins plan to keep him, look for him to jump up to 3.5-4M based on his play the last 2 years.
---2017-2018, Daniel Sprong is an RFA. If he plays half a season in Pittsburgh and produces like his potential, the Penguins may look for maybe a 2M deal for him for 1 or 2 years. If he plays a full season and puts up a monster year, that number could push higher.

So, the future makeup and resignings is where bringing in Duchene gets tricky. One of Kessel, Sheary, or Hornqvist still need to be traded in the next 12 months, IMO, if Daniel Sprong plays to his potential. They'll need to make room for him to be somewhere in the top 9, most likely top 6.


I think you would have to move Sheary at some point along with Hagelin without adding much in salary from those transactions in order to open up enough money to sign both Hornqvist and Cole in 2018-19. With all of that movement would Duchene even be interested in signing here beyond his current deal?

I would add Duchene - if he is the bees knees, resigning him, letting hornqvist move on, Sprong playing RW in 17-18 from the get-go.

I think it would be okay - the issue for me is the next Guentzel deal, particularly if he gets to say 30 goals this year.

But if Crosby, Malkin, Duchene, Guentzel, Sheary, Kessel, Sprong, ZAR, and 'player X' (Archibald, Johnson, Wilson, maybe Rust if he can be retained, etc.) make up the top 9 a couple of years from now I think they will be okay.

To me that's 5 top fwds with the others being fast and skilled.

If the Penguins got Duchene for Maatta, Jarry, and a 1st, I'd like to see something like the lineup below as what the Penguins would come into the 2018-2019 season:

Guentzel-Crosby-Sprong
Rust-Malkin-Hornqvist
Aston-Reese-Duchene-Kessel
Wilson-Rowney-Reaves
xKuhnhackl, Archibald

You move Hagelin and Sheary, one of them bringing in some picks or higher end defensive prospects. This has ZAR shifting to LW. Hornqvist playing with Geno is a bit of a concern, but I can't see saddling Duchene with "grinder-type" guys in Hornqvist and ZAR. Maybe ZAR steps up and becomes the new Hornqvist, they keep Sheary with Crosby, and Malkin gets Sprong.

Lot of options, but essentially, 2 of Hornqvist, Hagelin, and Sheary would need to be moved in the next year as well. That may need to happen with our without Duchene coming, anyways.

Colorado wants a top 4 defenseman as part of the package, so Maatta would have to be included. Which brings up who replaces Maatta this year if he is included in the deal? Can't hold your breath that it's going to be Pouliot. Seems likely a 2nd deal would have to be made at some point.

I would hate to see Maatta traded(He annoys me at time but I'm a fan). Could/would the 2nd deal give Colorado the top 4 defenseman they want?

Trying to think of a fair deal for both sides but with a potential 3 peat in sight, I have a hard time not being greedy.

Sheary as a primary piece back for Duchene doesn't make much sense from Colorado's perspective. He's a lesser player (though maybe not to a significant degree) controlled for the same amount of term. The only way the swap probably works if the Pens could use him to get the kind of D asset Colorado wants, or to get a D back that would make someone like Maatta expendable. I think most of those scenarios are only questionably going to make the Pens better when all the pieces are moved.

Yeah, i meant 18-19 - boy the years are just flying by! :)

I agree with it all except I'd have Sheary in/ Hornqvist out as I see their production similar, Sheary's style a better fit, and he's younger - but they will have many options as you say - I like the 2 year contract for the Pens because it will give them flexibility when they will certainly need it (with Guentzel and Murray making much more money).


It's interesting that the 2 year deal likely puts the 'Canes out of it (because they can't renegotiate a new deal now as they could if this was his last year so the asset loss would not be worth it)

The only team I see that could definitely trump the Pens in the deal would be the jackets - but if Colorado really doesn't believe in Ryan Murray, they may like Maatta more (as I would).

Reminds me of a couple summers ago with the Brandon Saad sweepstakes.

Unless there are other deals, The Pens can't bring in a $6M salary without $4m or so of salary going out. (That needs to be net, so if you trade 2 guys you have to add in the replacement salary for the 2nd roster spot too.)

Reminds me of a couple summers ago with the Brandon Saad sweepstakes.

The whole possibility of bringing in Duchene would probably be a lot easier if this was the 2018 Offseason. It's happening a year too early for the Penguins. If all this was occurring next year:
---Pens would know Sheary and Dumoulin salaries sit.
---Pens would have a better handle on where Guentzel may slot salary wise based on his 2nd season of output
---Pens would have a better idea of Sprong and ZAR performance
---Knowing Sprong and ZAR performance output at least in year one may give better direction on if ZAR can effectively replace Hornqvist, and if Sprong is ready for top 6 duty.
---Pens would be able to talk extension already.

Right now, everyone seems to be slotting Maatta in as 3rd pairing, with Dumoulin and Cole as the top 4 LD. I still think all 3 (Maatta, Dumoulin, and Cole) are 2nd pairing guys, and that Maatta has more value and upside over the other 2, but, that's why he is likely the most desirable trade piece we have on defense.

If the Penguins went after Duchene for said package, I'd either plan to ride Pouliot and evaluate at the trade deadline, or shop for a bottom pair defender from Vegas, who has like 11 defenseman on one-way deals with no waiver exemption. Vegas needs to deal....their big problem is they are trying to keep all the d-men everyone else would want (Schmidt, Theodore, Miller).

It's been mentioned before, but if there's one team that seems to be an obvious trading partner it's Vegas. The bulk of their centermen are ideal 3rd line types. I could see Eakin or Lindberg being fits. I remember being impressed watching Eakin because of his hustle, work ethic -- he's somebody that really gets in there and battles.
I think Lindberg's the type that's still gradually getting better and could play with more skilled linemates in a Sullivan system and take care of the little things - the small, professional level plays you don't always take notice of.

What do they want in return that they don't have yet?

There's Hörnqvist, Hagelin, Sheary. One of those contracts plus a so-so prospect? Maybe including a 2nd rounder in 2057?

If they would take Hagelin's salary back, I'll happily do it. No way I move Hornqvist. Sheary, perhaps, but I would want more than Lindberg back -- at least a 2nd round pick or they return they 2020 pick we gave them to ensure the drafting of Fleury.
