Approved now.

Pens move Reaves to Vegas too, which is weird. They gave up *so much* for him and bailing now is hilarious.

I like it for the Pens, but one thing that worries me a little is that I think Reaves and Cole were both loved in the room. It's good to have personalities that unite the players. On-ice play is more important, but I just hope it doesn't mess up the chemistry in some weird way. Though tbh I wouldn't have cared if Reaves was a healthy scratch the rest of the season.

I think the Pens will make another deal for a cheap 5/6 D man. Not sure we want to go with Hunwick/Ruhwedel as the 6/7.

PIT doesn't have much cap room for a dman. This deal was only possible because VGK retained 40% of Brassard's salary. I know they can get creative, but I think they only have $300K of cap space left.

The best part about this deal is that the Penguins get Brassard next season for $3M.

Hornqvist is their only notable UFA.

RFAs include:
  • Sheahan, who is making over $2M right now - not ideal for the de facto 4th line centre if he's re-signed for next season.
  • Simon - don't think he's got the chops to get Sheary RFA money, but maybe more than Rust/Kuhnhackl took? A million a year for 2 years probably.
  • Rust - probably gets a raise to $2 or $3 million
  • Kuhnhackl - probably gets a raise to a million or so.
  • Sprong - hasn't established himself at the NHL level, so won't cost too much yet
  • Oleksiak - probably gets a raise to like $2 million? Ian Cole-ish money as a bottom pairing d-man.
  • Jarry - backup money, $1m or less.
That all leaves only about 2.7 million to re-sign Hornqvist, assuming the cap does not increase. If it goes up by 2 or 3 million, they should be able to get the entire team back together for 18/19, if that's what they want.

I still want to improve the bottom 6 this year and next, but if it's not doable, I could live without.

Carter Rowney is also a UFA, but who cares.

Man.... 5 years at $5.3 million per is *a lot* for a guy who is 31 and probably going to decline very abruptly at some point in the not too distant future.


That said, the Penguins now have zero significant UFAs.

DeSmith and Jarry have both been pretty good this year. I'm not too worried about it. Still more than a month until the playoffs start.

Definitely not. Feels like his third... maybe more?

Whoa! Shit!

Not necessarily a connection, but with the crackdown on goalie interference it's odd with two goalies out with concussions. Price apparently injured on a puck to the head though.

Sid plays 82 games for the first time in his career and somehow finishes 3rd on the team in scoring.
