If the Jackets add one more dynamic player to go with Panarin, they could be a serious threat in the East. That's if the 2016-17 Jack Adams winner doesn't find a way to cock it all up, which he certainly might.

Agree on the management philosophy end, but it is REALLY HARD to win a Stanley Cup. There's a reason nobody had done it back to back in two decades. That said, until Brady and Bill are out of New England, the Steelers have a dragon to slay that doesn't really exist for the Penguins, unless you want to include the Washington Generals...er Crapitals.


Because the Pens are the Patriots?

Tampa had the choke sunk in last year and the Pens wiggled out of it. Add in an improved Ottawa squad and a young up and coming Columbus squad. There isn't an equal to the Pens right now(maybe Chicago) but there are a lot of good teams in the East.


Yes, and Crosby is Brady. We love him. Chicks love him. Everyone else hates him. And he's the best hockey player in the world right now.

But what kind of assets do they have to land someone dynamic? They traded for a #1 dman by giving up a #1 C and now need another #1C

Kinda ironic

They're rumored to be contenders (along with GMJR and the Preds) for Duchene, for what it's worth.

You can't compare MLB to NFL/NHL

Lets say you could compare the NHL to MLB. What do you think the likelihood that Pirates ownership would spend to the ceiling of a salary cap? If Bob owned the Penguins the payroll would get a 30% haircut.
