Sprong was traded to the Ducks for 6 foot 3, 177 pound defenseman named Marcus Pettersson. he is on his entry level contract making $894,167 and will be a restricted free agent this summer. He played in 27 of Anaheim's first 29 games, averaged 14:01 minutes per game.

I think Rutherford had his hands ties because Sullivan just wouldn't play him so he had to trade him. I guess it's better to get something for him than to have him just sitting around but I wish they would've just given him a chance.

I agree in that I would have liked to see more chances for Sprong but given how long they have been shopping him and the return they got maybe he isn't regarded as highly elsewhere as he is with Penguins fans. Maybe Depres 2.0. We will see. I don't know enough about their return to be excited or not.

Colorado is leading in shots after one period but the Penguins are leading in goals. Guentzel, Malkin and Brassard score to take a 3-0 lead after one period. Colorado did score on the power play but it was overturned as Sullivan challenged it for goalie interference

Just remember though, the Avalanche lead the Penguins 3-0 a week ago until Crosby started to put on a one man show. Penguins can't lay back in this one

I donít follow the penguins closely but this Sprongsituation reminds me an awful lot of what goes on withthe Pirates. The head coach and GM arenít on the same page.

Here they come. The Avs are back in this after scoring two quick goals. Pens up 3-2 with still 10 minutes left in the second period

Pens and Avs tied 3-3. This pens team is sooooo frustrating right now. This team is one of the most veteran heavy teams in the league and for some reason, they forgot how to maintain a lead.

At this pace, I would be shocked if this team even makes the playoffs this season. As far as I'm concerned, unless your name is Crosby, everyone else is tradeable. Even Malkin and Letang - the duo that continues to take the dumbest penalties game in and game out

Pens needed that one! Crosby draws the penalty and Hornqvist buries the rebound right in front of the net to give the Pens a 4-3 lead with a little over 13 minutes left

That was a really bad goal to give up by Varlamov. Hornqvist gets another goal to give the Pens a 5-3 lead!

Natural hat trick!!!! Hornqvist gets a third goal and I got to believe he got the fastest hat trick in Pens history because that was a quick three goals. Pens up 6-3 with 11 minutes left

Yep, they just said that a record. Three goals in 2:47. Congrats

pens win this game 6-3 on the back of a solid third period and a solid first half of the first period. The middle part of the game the Pens let Colorado climb back into the game and tie it up. It's really good that this team got the win over a Colorado team that was 9-0-2 in their past 11 games but they are still playing very sloppy and for some reason they can't seem to play with the lead.

I wonder if Sullivan will ride DeSmith if Murray can't go on Thursday or will he give Jarry a shot?

I would ride the hot goalie. Whichever one it is of the three. Desmith is not spectacular but at this point I would feel most comfortable with him in net.

Hockey Night In Canada is reporting that GMJR has been kicking the tires on trading Kessel and they also reported that he is nowhere near done making trades.

Sounds like a lot of shaking up will be happening with the Penguins

I would assume that (to your point a few posts above) everyone aside from Sid "can be had."

GMJR's biggest regret right now is probably not making more moves to break up the second cup winning team. Fans tend to live in the past but GMs have to have more foresight than nostalgia (Steelers and Patriots are good at that in their sport). The Pearson move was a great example of them going with logic over nostalgia, and yet some fans i instantly wrote that off as a bad trade.

Trust me, I am not wishing anyone away (I love Kessel) but can understand that whatever move they make they are trying to improve themselves. I have confidence that GMJR will do the right thing, whoever is traded.

The biggest mistake was not keeping Bonino. He's not the greatest hockey player, but he was a snug fit with the Pens.
