Rumor is Philly will buy out Danny Briere. For the right price I think he'd be an interesting look for Crosby's line. He'd bring softer hands, vision (playmaking) and creativity, which are things they could have used more of against Boston that neither Dupuis or Iginla brought.


He also is great at convincing linesman that he is onsides as well.

This sentiment baffles me. What more does Dupuis have to do to justify his spot as a quality winger for Crosby? He's been nothing short of excellent there, and dropping him to the third line would be a swift slap to the face of one of the hardest-working, most-improved, and most-respected players on the roster. If he re-signs, he stays with Crosby. Period. End of story.


Can you honestly sign a 34 year old Dupuis for 4 more years, expecting him to contribute like he is now? I just don't see the value.


What would be the problem of playing Bennett on Malkin's line and Dupuis on Crosby's?

Everyone's happy.


If Dupuis doesn't come back, Bennett is going to play with Sid. Or at least he should. Those two could be magical. Unfortunately, if they happen to re-sign Iginla, he will play 3rf pairing defenseman under Bylsma.

God I can't believe they didn't can his ass.

Quite honestly I really doubt the OP has ever watched a Calgary Flames game in his life. All these yinzers that post here so often and don't really watch any other hockey aside from Pens games should just refrain from posting... Either that or go back to grade school and pick up a copy of Hooked on Phonics while you're at it. It's embarrassing...



All because he spelling Jarome Jerome? Really? That tangent?

I still don't want Iggy back unless he is coming back at 3 mil or less, and I doubt that happens. Even at 3 mil I'm hesitant. I want Duper to stay, but I can't see giving him 4 years, and I doubt Shero will either. Duper has a chance to cash in and if he does I won't blame him at all.

I wasn't that impressed either. Awesome on the PP (where he wasn't used) but on equal strength I was disappointed for sure.

I think we saw why he's scored a lot but his team has been less than successful over the last few years. He does a few things really well, but some gaps in his game were exposed, for sure.

It'd be interesting to see what Iggy could do at his natural position. But, I'm sure if the Pens manage to sign him, Teflon Dan will have him paired with Despres or something.

Yeah, my thought. I didn't see enough from him in the playoffs and based on that I'd say 'no', but it's hard to judge because I didn't see him play right wing with Crosby. Thanks, Dan. Now what happens if Shero signs him at a large chunk of the cap and he plays like crap?

Iggy's role on this team should be as a 3rd liner and powerplay specialist, able to fill in on the top 6. $3m is about the max for that kind of player.

But is that the kind of player we want on 3rd line that should probably rather be fast, feisty, and defensively responsible?

Well, yeah, except Dupuis plays like a 1st line player now. Maybe there is such a thing as too much of a good thing and I think Shero got caught up in that, though I can't fault him for trading for Iginla. As he said, if you have a guy like that available, you get him, then work things out later. Wonder what we would instead look like if we got some other guy in his place. Or nevermind. We should have played Bennett with Malkin and Neal. Bennett is and was ready for big time and played great hockey. Then Iginla took his spot. Yeah, that kinda bit us on the ass. We had 2 solid scoring lines. That we didn't score against Bruins isn't a case of personnel, imo.

I honestly don't know what to do about Iginla. If he can play with Sid, great. But we don't know that. Then we'd have a better player in Dupuis, and he is better, on the 3rd? Maybe we can keep Dupuis with Cooke and Sutter, but I'm not sure that's fair to Dupuis, not to mention a waste of his sudden scoring ability.

Shero will need to think hard about setting up the roster for next season.

Iginla's playing attributes did not fit in with the Pens in 2013. But I his intangibles and felt he was a good role model. He may fit in better next season, depending on how much the roster changes.

In my humble, but probably correct opinion, even though I would let him go because of age and lack of speed, I don't think it's fair to give a proper judgment on Iginla, seeing as how he wasn't playing the position that he had played for his entire career. I wonder how well Crosby would do on RW instead of Center.

Philly is definitely buying out Danny Briere. If you're talking a 2 year, 6M deal, I would so much rather have him over Iggy.

I'm with this. Briere fits DB's system if he can stay healthy.

I guess it's a win-win, because he's fits in perfectly with the pens if he can't stay healthy.

I don't know, I think Iggy might come back a bit more prepared to fit into the style of this team. He spent his entire career playing for one team. To then make the switch to a whole new game, with real expectations, ain't too easy in 20 or so games. He just seemed like he was along for the ride....

That said, he's a consumate professional. An athlete who knows how to prepare for a challenge. With a summer of mental prep and a full season of fitting in, I could see him revitalize his play. Not that he'd be back to where he was 5 years ago, but I do think he could be a productive member of this team, so long as he's signed to an affordable contract. Remember, James Neal was unproductive when he came over after the trade deadline.

Not necessarily advocating it; but it seems like re-signing him to a friendly contract (@ $2.5m) is a move Shero would make.

From what I remember James played alot harder and had alot of opportunities he couldn't bury but you saw the potential. With Iggy there wasn't much to see. Even if he was playing on his off wing he should have showed more. It was actually the opposite where he got points but he was never showing assertiveness.(except on the Left side PP)
Power forward? Not even close.
Seems like a great guy but i'd rather overpay Dups than keep Iggy. Iggy would be one of my last priorities if there was room and deal was good for the Pens.
