It does and hopefully, they bring in the much needed touchness or grit.
They can be speedy and grit. I think Sullivan should catch that and realize he’ll get his forecheck backMy read on them is that they want grit, lots of it. I would trade Tanev for a gritty team. IMO, that is our biggest missing part. Even jarry will be bettered by a team that is more like the Bs or Caps.
F&#@!!!! is right. GD it....We'll see but not protecting Tanev makes me wonder if they have the pulse of this team...Why not leave Blue unprotected with his great new contract and protect the one guy that gave some spark to a pretty much listless, emotionless team? What the hell is so special about Blue?F&#@!!!!
Pens brass better have a plan.
Valid points. The McCann trade helps out TOR, so the Pens did it for reasons down the road for their benefit. I don't know why other than for cap reasons, but let's see how it plays out. I will give the new GM a chance to mold it to their liking. More moves have to be coming.Tanev is a a guy who’s easy to root for but let’s be real. He was making too much money for too many years as a fourth liner. I still don’t understand the McCann move because the Penguins essentially lost two players in the expansion draft. This looks to be nothing more than clearing cap space meaning they probably feel good about someone on the roster stepping in for McCann and will look for a cheap replacement for Tanev.
