Pens get Harry Zolnierczyk for Alex Grant

Postby DelPen on Mon Jun 24, 2013 1:48 pm

Hated him on Philly but he certainly is a need for the 4th line.

Fills a 4th line need, and I don't think Grant was going to get much of a shot on this team. So it works I guess.

If Adams is back has there ever been a 4th line comprised of all Ivy leaguers?

I can hear Pierre now:

"Eddie, this is the smartest 4th line in hockey. Their IQ is off the charts."

Zol is a cheap shotter. Couldn't be more disappointed in this move. Yes we needed to get tougher, this isn't the way.

not sure if this is what you are referring to but according to wikipedia:

On February 14, 2007, Zolnierczyk was arrested and interviewed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) for his role in the production and distribution of a pornographic video involving an underage girl. While Zolnierczyk's then Alberni Valley Bulldogs teammate Brad Harding engaged in consensual sex with the underage girl at the home of Harding's billet family in November 2006, Harding's computer webcam transmitted the images to Zolnierczyk who saved and distributed the video to teammates. After showing the video to friends of the victim, RCMP was alerted and with Harding already being interviewed by police, Zolnierczyk was arrested. After pleading guilty to two counts of electronic voyeurism, Zolnierczyk was sentenced to a three-year conditional discharge on June 6, 2008. Following the completion of his three-year sentence, Zolnierczyk was left with no permanent criminal record

Can't say I'm a fan of his. Enhances the Pens' sideshow tendencies if he's in the NHL

What? The Flyers wouldn't trade Rinaldo?

This signing means little to nothing. He probably won't even see much playing time even as far as 4th lines are concerned.

Maybe they can trade for Carcillo while they're at it. Grant was never going to get a look here (and I think missing a full season of his development really hurt him), so him moving on isn't a surprise, but I'd honestly rather have a 12th round draft pick in 2020.

And Tyler Kennedy whooped him once:

Nothing for nothing i doubt this guy makes his way out of the AHL.

After reading his roll in that case, you don't need that headache.
