Ya, I havenít been impressed with Kahun or Tanev either. Maybe GMJR will trying hard to trade Rust and open up a spot on the bottom 6. I do like the way Hornqvist has been playing. Maybe he is playing his way into a top 6 spot

I think they are trying to force a Johnson and Letang pairing which I do t think is going to work. I would also love to see Marino make the team. I think he has been playing really good

Someone on the TV side was talking about Kahun and his ability to manuever in tight spots, etc. It was exactly the same way Simon is described. Instead of 1 Dominic Simon, the Pens apparently now have 2. I haven't seen any chemistry with Tanev/Kahun with Crosby or Malkin although Kahun looked a lot better when McCann moved to center after Crosby got hurt. Maybe he's intimidated playing with Sid.

Personally, last year, I thought Schultz and JJ weren't a bad pair. JJ brings a similar game to Cole. That more stay-at-home, physical game seems to suit Schultz. Thought Petterssen and Gudbranson brought a bruising style that the Pens have never really ever had. I think Marino is better served playing big minutes and in all situations in WBS. He can always be recalled in the event of injury.

How bad is Sydney hurt?   They never give you any info on injuries with Pens.

All I heard is that they are being evaluated today ( Crosby and Rust ). Both left the game after blocking shots. I'm sure if it is something major, we will hear about it today

I think Borque said Sid's foot got hit by a shot and Rust got smacked in the hand. Because Rust was given a towel on his way off the ice, Borque thought maybe Rust got a pressure cut on his hand.

Sid with a foot injury, day-to-day. Rust has a hand injury, still being evaluated, but seems the more serious of the two.

Just announced that Jarry wins the backup goalie job and DeSmith was put on waivers

Pretty amazing since Jarry hardly played in exhibition season, but expected since he makes less than DeSmith and is better insurance if/when Murray gets hurt. I expect DeSmith to clear waivers and be sent to WBS. 1.3M is a lot to spend on a back up goalie.

When he did play I thought he looked really good though

On a side note Anaheim placed Daniel Sprong on waivers today also. Maybe he wasn't the second coming haha...

I'd take Sprong back. It's not like the Pens are blessed with a plethora of wingers who are natural goal scorers.

Nobody claimed DeSmith so he and I heard Marino are going to WBS

I would love to see Sprong back here but not with Sullivan as coach. He will never use him right. Same reason I feel Jarry is set to fail as the backup here. He will be always looking over his shoulder waiting to be pulled the same as Sullivan did to Fleury

Reportedly Rust will go on LTIR as soon as the roster is set and roster moves are allowed again.

Sprong cleared waivers so he will be playing AHL hockey. Apparently 29 other teams plus Pittsburgh and Anaheim did not want him. I am sick and tired of Sullivan being blamed for not wanting Sprong when obviously no one does. It's not like his salary will break the bank ($575K).

Also this will be my chance to remind everyone that they acquired PETTERSON in the Sprong trade last season! If anything Sullivan/GMJR should be praised for their foresight regarding Sprong.

I like Sprong but he is nothing more than a middling prospect at best this point and no team in the NHL right now would be giving him anything more than a few 4th line minutes.

Lots of players clear waivers right now as teams are getting cap compliant and setting their rosters. Casey DeSmith cleared waivers. It didn't mean he's not an NHL-caliber goalie. He proved last season that he was, even earning a 3 yr, 1.3M AAV contract.
