they're probably going to look like a bunch of white dudes wearing some combination of black, white, and khaki...

Since they ditched Park, I'd have to agree with Froggy.

If you weren't a vegetarian, I'd recommend that you go out for a Doaner kebab, while we wait.

At this point in time, my mind link with GMRS tells me this is what we are looking at

FORWARDS
Dupuis - Crosby - FA-TRADE/Jeffrey/Tangradi/?
Kunitz - Malkin - Neal
Cooke - Sutter - Kennedy
Glass - Vitale - Adams

DEFENCE
Letang - Martin
Orpik - Niskanen
Engellend - Lovejoy
Despres or Reese

spare:Jeffrey, BigMac

I was trying to make up a line up but i just can't decide to split Kunitz up with Malkin and Neal or move him to SIds line. Sid needs a good winger and he has had success with Duper and Kunitz befor. But Kunitz played so well well with Neal and Malkin. If you keep the NMK line together you push the other coach to match his best defencemen vs that line. leaving Sid vs lessor D men to face. But a Sid Kennedy duper line really isn't something i want to see even vs a other teams 2nd pair of defencemen. Unless Bennette can make it on SIds line and proves to be capible. Tangradi i just don't think would fit with Sid, really doubting his ability to be a top 2 line guy on this team. Mostly because of Sid and Malkin not needed that type of slower powerforward on their line. both thoes guys need players who can rush the puck up the ice. Tangradi is built for a dump and chase game.

The Pens will add all start, all American Andrew Hilbert to the club to finish his career with Sidney Crosby.

Based on what Crosby has been doing when healthy, I'm not sure he doesn't still draw the top defenseman.

Tangradi on Sid's wing is a pipe dream

Just got back from Watching Sid practice.

Was flying out there smiling and having a lot of fun. He was mostly playing, scrimmaging, and doing drills with Beau Bennett.

Bennett's hands are def. there, but his skating and most importantly his foot speed needs A LOT of work.

It was crazy how many pens, former penguins and prospects were out there today.

Sid, Dick Park, Mike Comrie, BB, Dustin Jeffery, and two or so other players I couldn't really identify.

Other NHLers practicing today were Perros, Ryan, Miller, Stoll, I think David Krejci

Was a lot of fun and nice to see Sid flying and completely owing people in practice.


This is from a poster on HF Boards, so take it for what it is worth, but...
Maybe Bennett is going to get a good look on Sid's wing. They are putting in some time now.

Mike Comrie on the comeback tour?

I still think that would have worked out had he not had hip issues. Just saying.
