Sprong's debut in Anaheim: https://www.post-gazette.com/sports/penguins/2018/12/06/Daniel-Sprong-scores-goal-Ducks-debut-trade-Penguins/stories/201812060098


Yep, scored on his first shot with Anaheim. A nice little under the crossbar bad angle shot

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

Still a tough call. Because of the financials and the value of said player, GMJR made the most logical move. In the end keeping Murray and letting go of MAF could also be considered a "mistake" only in that it did not work out, but in that case he also made the correct logical move.

I guess my point is that it is a hindsight mistake (kind of like Lovejoy for Despres from an Anaheim perspective) more so than an error in judgement (i.e. reacquiring Rob Scuderi a few years back). For the record, the Sprong trade if it is a failure still may fall in either category or both (kind of like Naslund for Stojanov 1996).

I may be wrong but if I remember correctly, Bonino just wanted too much money at the time and the Pens couldn't afford it. I still say Shero signing Letang to that ridiculous contract hamstrung the Penguins for several years. I think that contract is up after next season and I would love to be a fly on the wall to see what the Pens do with Letang then

Getting rid of Fleury IMO, was a big mistake which I said from the start and also I think trading away that young goalie to Ottawa for Brassard is going to come back and bit them

DeSmith is in net tonight. Pens are looking for their first win against the Islanders. Simon is out with an upper body injury and the great Bryan Rust has taken his spot on the top line

Nice passing play between Brassard and Letang and Letang is able to bury the nice pass from Brassard top shelf over Greissís shoulder to give the Pens an early 1-0 lead

Griess gives up a really bad goal with less than a minute left in the period as Letang gets his second goal of the game to give the Pens a 2-1 lead after one period

Wow! Unbelievable passing play on that power play just stunned the Islanders defenders as Kessel was able to. Hey the puck and give the Pens a 4-1 lead

Pens are rolling in this game! Kessel gets another goal off a nifty play from Crosby and now the Pens lead 5-1. Kessel and Letang with 2 goals each

Pens win last night 6-2 and this game looked a heck of a lot better than the game against Colorado on Tuesday. Except for the shorthanded goal, this was an all around good game for the Pens and the start of a nice little winning streak. Hornqvist left in the second period and I missed what happened to him but it forced Sullivan to change up the lines. He had Kessel playing with Crosby and it actually worked for the little bit they played. Let's see if we see them together a little more with Simon out, Sprong gone and possibly Hornqvist out

Next up is a Saturday game in Canada against Ottawa the back on Monday against the Islanders in NY.

Simon was put on IR with a lower body injury and the Pens recalled Jean Sebastian Dea. I would like to see them try Kessel on Crosby's line for a little bit longer. Produced 2 goals last night

No word yet on Hornqvist as practice was cancelled today. Hopefully we will hear something tomorrow

Penguins playing a very young but a very surprisingly good Senators team. DeSmith is in the net, Kessel is on the top line with Crosby, Sheahan on the second line with Malkin as Simon and Hornqvist are still out.

They are gonna have to bear down if they want to win tonight
