Needless to say, it would be nice if this team had a little more depth up front before the playoffs started.

Hmm?

If IR wasn't retroactive, teams have more chance of having to keep a good player in the press box, when healthy, because they needed the roster spot when they were out.


EDIT: oh, you're not talking about this particular scenario I guess, just in general. I thought you were implying the Penguins left a scenario open where Malkin could be scratched for Smith or something...which is impossible.

A: Better than 2/3 of our 4th line.


Ehh, not sure about that. At least in that role.

If by "interesting" you mean "tedious" or "pointless", then yes! Yes, indeed.

I have done some work in accounting, so those are all synonyms for interesting to me.

Roster sheet (http://www.nhl.com/scores/htmlreports/2 ... 020452.HTM) has him as #23, the Pens current magic number.

I believe he is referred to as Mister Smith where he's from, which happens to be Ottawa Ontario. The aforementioned, Mister Smith, is the subject of a wiki where it currently describes him as "jewish" and that he was once swapped for Nate Guenin.

edit: and the #23 does apparently seem magical to some, which was news to me.

A Jew from Ottawa? I've probably met some of his family, it's a pretty small community.

No offense, P4L, I was thinking of asking in this thread: who is slower, Smith or Michel Ouellet. Smith looked out of place, clearly an AHLer for a reason. Sure, there's an adaptation period, but it's not like it's this guy's first rodeo...he made it clear that he's an AHL vet yesterday.

Smith, Paul Thompson, Megna...These are your depth guys in the organization. It's imperative Shero picks up at least one, maybe two NHL forwards by the deadline.

I've heard Jeff Halpern has been claimed off waivers...not sure by who...maybe it's us? Though Halpern hates us I think...

I think a depth forward is coming at the deadline regardless...

At the cap game , Glass was throwing around some powerful checks and was more in the game.
Maybe-? he will be a bright light once the play-offs begin.
IF he can contiue to help assist, bring up the PK , that's his role.

Smith looked totally unremarkable. Not sure he won a single puck battle.

When Geno comes back, I hope Glass gets bumped to the press box. Vitale and Jeffrey bring more to this team than Glass. I'd run a 4th line of Vitale-Jeffrey-Adams. You could actually put them out there for defensive zone faceoffs. Add one of Jeffrey or Vitale into the PK rotation (they both have experience there). Team improved.
