I'm willing to give JR the benefit of the doubt, his trades as the Pens GM have gone well resulting in 2 Cups thus far...

Neal for Hornqvist, Spaling
Despres for Lovejoy
Bortuzzo for Cole
Kapanen, 1st, 3rd for Kessel, 2nd
Sutter, 3rd for Bonino, 2nd
Scuderi for Daley
Perron for Hagelin
3rd for Schultz
2nd for Hainsey
-----------------------------------
Sundqvist, 1st for Reaves, 2nd
Wilson, 3rd for Sheahan, 5th

Can Sheahan play PK?

Yes he can.

Yes he can.

Think it's probably best to give McKegg and Sheahan the chance to settle who's 3C and 4C.

The more that I see of Sheahan, the more I think he'll need to go with Kessel. Seems to be at his best when shooting in stride and finishing loose pucks after someone else's shots. Should Sprong ever come up, that too would likely work.

I can't say I like, am happy with, or understand this trade. But I've said this about other trades that I liked and others did not, and I'll say it now: GMJR has worked some magic in his tenure here. I'm going to trust that he thinks Sullivan and company can improve Sheahan's game.

Sheahan in as 3C at practice, with McKegg down to 4C. Rowney is not practicing, likely due to shot taken to arm by Hedman over the weekend.

As it should be. McKegg isn't a 3C.

I'm not 100% sure but I think Rowney was put on IR.

I guess I don't have any big problem with the trade, they're getting a guy who's about the same age and 30 pounds bigger. Not sure if Wilson had a bad camp but saying he could barely crack the lineup might be a bit of a misnomer. He played 20 of 25 games come crunch time in the 2017 playoffs and got his name on the cup. Don't be surprised to see Sheahan paired with an old Notre Dame teammate Bryan Rust.

Correct, so he's out for at least the next 6 days (placed on IR yesterday).

I didn't get to see tonight's game vs Edm. Did Sheahan play? What # is he wearing?

Sheahan centered Hornqvist and Hagelin. Number 15, played a solid game. Just under 15 minutes, did well on face-offs, had an assist and was plus 1.

I also think he played well, especially since it was his 1st game with the Pens. I also noticed that he seems to be a pretty good skater and plays solid "D". And on the Cole goal he provided an excellent screen and got a +1 for his effort there. Not bad for a 1st game with a new team. :thumb:

Over all I think he did good, seems like he dumped the puck a bit more than I expected, but seems like his line was expected to play that was to ease him into the system. Good at cycling in the corners when they established control down low. Big guy, didn't throw his weight around to much but again let him get a few games under his belt. It all comes down to re-building his confidence and making him into a Penguins 3rd line center.

He doesn't look out of place. Sheahan could be a very good fit indeed if he can build on this. He contrasts with Rowney and McKegg, that's for sure...

Good instincts and skating. No shots in the game, which has always been the knock even in 2011 (creating his own offense). But he has time (certainly until the trade deadline) and a nice duo of wingers to develop a very good 2-way 3rd line.
I hope his face-off prowess continues. Looked good on the PK. Teammates and coach seemed impressed watching him on the ice.

Still glad we wasted cap space on a 3rd line center that produces nothing? He's OK defensively but offensively he is a black hole.

2 goals or less in 8 of the 16 played. This team needs a wing for Malkin. I'd like to see Malkin and Sprong together for about 20 games straight. And I'd like to see Bozak brought in for Kessel's line.

It would be nice if Malkin could actually work with a winger.

Yeah I really thought Mooseknuckle would light it up on his wing. Meanwhile Sid goes from Jake and Conor, to Conor and Horny, to Jake and Kessel.

And STILL refuses to put the puck in the net.

It's kind of like, Mike Johnston kidnapped Sullivan, and it now behind the bench in a Mike Sullivan costume. Seriously, it's getting that bad...... I don't care how much "better the team seems to be playing the last few games," they still can't score at even strength, averaging less than 1 ES goal over their last 5 games.

They may look prettier, but they still have an awful stench about them.

Maybe its time for Rutherford to make a major trade? He stated he wanted to use the first 20 games to evaluate the team, well they are getting close to that milestone, and without a doubt they need to be better 5 on 5.

All things considered, don't forget the Pens have only played 5 home games while playing 11 on the road, along with the unusually high amount of back to backs.
