Artie is a scout now, isn't he? I thought that he was, just can't remember for sure.
Tocchett- im going to start calling you browneyes.
You never, ever believed in Armstrong and you know it, so quit LYING and admit it.

We haven't had anyone come up through the organization and have an impact on the league. Fleury? Crosby? Whopdi doo, they're number one picks! That's not hard!
Where have we developed a player? Koltsov? Dome? Kraft? Morozov? Bergkvist? Chris Wells? Aubin? Hillier?
The one player I'll give them is Malone..he's coming around now, and proved last year that he's a decent player...ONE!!
Here's 4 other players that the Pens have drafted since 91 that have had an impact on the NHL....Naslund, Straka, Ference, and Richard Park....guess what they all have in common? They're no longer Pens!!
Naslund was dealt for the stupidest reason, Straka was let go and is having a great season, Park is a regular player on the Canucks, and played well with the Wild too, and Ference is a regular player on the Flames.
Want to know what else they all have in common? They're all playing a regular shift for TOP TEAMS!
....still think we know how to develop and draft players? Give me a break!
