Thats dumb.

You make the best deal you can for your team.

And if Ranger friends/your friends actually give it some actual thought and proper analysis, they would realize that the best thing they can do when they get a 2nd rounder is to get it from their rivals who they are directly competing against, so they can weaken them in the future when the Rangers are better. Who do they want to be weaker once their rebuild is done, the Devils or the Dallas Stars?

its short sighted and frankly, what i hate about fans who care as much about who they hate as much as who they root for.

I get it too. But there is a reason why these teams have never made a trade.

Rangers fans going nuts. My good friends included. Grabner goes to the hated Devils.

All the Ranger fans I know have no problem trading with the Devils. I like this deal for the devils. Grabner was the Rangers MVP this season and it wasn't even close

Really weird how its the best medal tally for Canada ever but with only 1 Gold medal in Hockey and Curling combined

I think Canada had 4 golds in the last 2 Olympics in those 2 sports

My friend is a hot head. Lol. Trying to calm him down. The dman is a high end prospect and plays in the same team as the goalie that is supposed to be next starter for Rangers

Pens have fixed that centre depth problem pretty effectively, it seems.

Sheahan down to L4, Brassard to L3 with Kessel.

Gives the Pens three terrifying lines.

Little concerned about defensive depth with Cole gone, but I'd imagine JR will add a d-man before the deadline.

@PierreVLeBrun



There are still more details to come in this Pittsburgh-Ottawa trade, perhaps a third team involved in some manner...

Nice return for Brassard.
The goalie prospect is a good one.

I haven't watched a lot of non-Penguins games lately...

Have refs stopped calling penalties (both ways) in other games? Or is it just ones the Pens are involved in? Teams are lucky to get 1 PP/game in the last like 6 Pens games. It's bizarre.
