Crosby - "We have to tank for the 2015 draft"

Postby Godric on Tue Feb 19, 2013 9:53 pm

Obviously the title is a joke.

He reminds me of me," the Pittsburgh Penguins' Sidney Crosby tells USA TODAY Sports.

No offense to RS, but we would need to rehire luck of the Irish Craig Patrick for that.

I dont know anything about this kid, but if the comparisons continue and he's goes #1 overall in a couple years, would you try to trade up to get him?

It will cost an arm, a leg, a kidney, a liver node, a lung, a retina, and perhaps other unmentionables.

Pretty sure Malkin has all of those things, but not sure that would be enough though.

That would be a lateral move at best. That would be a terrible trade for the Penguins.

We dont have to draft him, we just have to sign him as a FA...I mean if he is the "LeBron James of hockey" he'll just ditch whatever team drafts him to play with Malkin and Crosby when he gets the chance. Because every good FA wants to sacrifice money and come to Pittsburgh to win a cup, right?

He looks to be the real "generational talent" deal. Doesn't have Crosby's size at that age, but is at least as good. Can't teach speed and hockey sense and he seems to have both.

This kid came along too quickly. Doesn't he realize that the precedent has been set: for 30 years, all generational talent goes to Pittsburgh. His parents blew it. Pfft.

Just trade for Columbus' 2015 pick. Lottery Pick.

I went to a few Otters games this season. The first thing I thought when I saw him was "Wow, he looks like a little Sid out there".

He seems to have that same hockey sense that Sid has, thinking a few moves ahead of everyone else.

Just think, if the Flyers or Caps continue their woes, they could end up with him...

Unless McDavid could somehow end up on the Pens, which given our roster and cup aspirations is only a pipe dream, I would like to see him land in either Columbus or Calgary. Both of those squads could use a new "face" for their franchise, and in Columbus' case it would certainly reenergize a fanbase that desperately needs something to cheer about.
