That could only be as a potential PKer, otherwise it makes little to no sense with the current roster.


Yeah, I think that'd be really dumb.

Much rather have a bottom pair defenseman than Cullen.

I think this only makes sense if Sheahan gets dealt.

This would make zero sense. Sheahan is way better than Cullen

This. I can't really believe they'd be thinking of going in this direction.

Unless they traded Sheahan for some defensive help, then turned around and got Cullen for a use bag of pucks to fill Sheahan's spot. I could be OK with that depending on what else we'd give up. But then again, that's a lot of moving pieces.

Tampa Bay adds Ryan McDonagh and JT Miller. Always thought McDonagh was a bit overrated, but anything that makes TB better is bad. Haven't seen what they gave up yet, though.

Pens added Josh Jooris, possible 4th liner/Wilkes Barre depth guy.

Possibly the biggest shocker of the Trade Deadline announcements is that Pens have apparently extended Hornqvist.

Rumored contract is 5 years @ 5.3 million.

I did not see that one coming.

That's a large aav. That's also more term than I was expecting them to offer, as well.

The AAV is better than expected. The term aligns with Malkin/Crosby/Kessel all being around 36 years old. Basically, it's right around the time the team should be blowing things up anyway.
