Will Recchi Be Dealt?

Reading this article, it is obvious he does not have a no-trade clause. He says things like

"I don't want to go anywhere. But it's going to be up to the team's decision"

"I haven't talked to anybody, no. I haven't talked to anyone about anything. I'm just worried about helping the young guys out, and that stuff will take care of itself. I signed here for a reason, and I'd love to stick it out. We'll find out. But I can't worry about it."

So, if CP can get something decent from a team like Toronto (they need somebody to play with Sundin), the I say go for it. Heck, I'd even take Antropov. But if they want to deal Stajan, that's fine too :) .

Recchi is not going anywhere. As a fan, who wouldnt take a younger player with a good upside back. No team is going to give up the farm for Recchi.

Recchi has been playing much better as of late..atleast from an offensive production stand point. If he can keep playing like that, then he can be an asset on this team next year.

Recchi has been an easy whipping boy. Older player, bigger salary, not playing like Recchi of old...

But this whole team is so soft and bad defensivley that those are the areas of mass concern. !! First and foremost.

Recchi was brought here to be a leader and be productive on both sides of the ice. He's been a miserable sob in the dressing room but has changed his tune somewhat since Therrien came back.

And he's been a lazy and soft too many times on defense.

I have a real problem with MT putting him on the point during the power-play.

How can you say this? The power play has been about the only bright spot recently. Well, except for ther shorties those couple games. Yes, I think Jackman and Gonchar should be back there, but if they're not, why not Recchi?

Well, I hate to be cynical (that's your job, after all), but I remember Lemieux saying emphatically that Recchi is here unless/until he asks to be traded, so maybe this is Recchi's way of setting the stage where he can ask to be traded but say it was the team's decision and thereby not get criticized for bailing?

Of course, it could all be true. :)

And, I have to admit, Recchi has been playing better lately and contributing more, although still some weak plays, but we're always willing to give our beloved veterans some slack, right? :wink:

It depends on what we get in return. Recchi for a capable defenseman? Yes, definetly. Recchi for yet another average forward? No thanks.

It's not really an issue though. Recchi has said he wants to stay and CP has said he is letting the veterans decide if they want to leave.

The trouble with this is that I doubt any team headed to the playoffs would trade a "capable" defenseman. You might be able to get a mid-range prospect, and that's about it. Not sure they need that, either.

Bottom line is, they should send him to the highest bidder.

I think the darn monekys are off today. The board hiccupped when I posted and it didn't seem like the message went through. Apparently it did.

Admin: I was getting some odd SQL error when I tried to post. it was searching for words or something.

Don't worry. Andrea will never dress again. She's retired. But unlike Mario and Ziggy, she didn't have the class to quit collecting a paycheck.

What actually happened to him? I recall him returning and playing a few games, one in which he had two fights. After that, it seemed as though he just dropped off the face of the earth. Granted, I haven't been able to follow the Post-Gazette and Trib coverage of the Pens as much as I could last semester, but I try to keep up, yet I don't recall reading anything.

Did he reinjure his face, or does he have a ghost injury? Whats the deal?

Postby OldMan on Mon Feb 06, 2006 5:35 pm

I dont have any inside info, except that I was at the Pens practice on Friday and Roy was there and didnt show any obvious rpoblems doing any of the drills--So, maybe the eye.

Or maybe Therrien just knows he sucks and won't play him....
