No. What this means is the Penguins had the same feeling as I did... that Vegas may have been inclined to go another direction with their selection. Or do you think the Penguins are just really charitable and felt like throwing away a draft pick?


It means both those things.

McPhee did not require a huge inducement to take MAF.

Pens swap their 1st pick (& Oscar Sundqvist) for Blues 2nd rounder and Ryan Reaves.

Matt Niskanen, payback is a bitch.

FUCKIN AY RIGHT!

Love the trade!!

We need one more physical player, hopefully a D-man, before next season starts.

Of course, we still need a 3 and 4 center if Bonino leaves and Cullen retires

There are some out there criticizing the deal. Here's what I like about the deal.

1. Reaves isn't just a goon. He has size and can bang on guys in the corner. He can go to the net. He can wear down people.
2. Reaves is affordable (just over $1 million on a 1-year deal). Reaves wants a new deal somewhere after next season so he'll be motivated.
3. Reaves doesn't have to suit up every night.
4. Sully will talk to Reaves -- explain his role isn't to be Georges Laraque. Be physical -- play the game the right way.
5. We've been told this is a weak draft class. I see this as swapping draft choices (31 for 51), and I see this as swapping Sundqvist for Reaves. If Sundqvist was Rust/Sheary/etc. he'd have already been here. Reaves gives the team extra sandpaper for playoff time and protection during the regular season.

All good points.

Sundquist isn't that good or else he would've been playing already. Zero points last year when he was up, and not impressive at all.

We dropped 20 spots in the draft -- no big deal.

Reaves has great genes and is a physical specimen -- He can skate too

Pens have a HUGE TARGET on their backs now -- need Reaves and one more guy like him on the blue line, or else we will get pummeled every night next season.

JR made a brilliant move, not waiting for the pounding to occur -- He already saw what was happening in the playoffs, and won't stand for it next year
