Training camp's opened....talk about a short off-season.

Still trying to deal for a #3 center.

I'll be in da house vs. Predators in three weeks...hoping that my son's good luck (9-0 when attending Steeler games) transfers to Penguins as well.....will be my first Pens game live since '88.

Went to the farmers market yesterday and there's a guy from Slovakia who mans a fruit stand. A total hockey freak/ fan. Plays as well and they call him "Malkin." He looks like him and supposedly plays like him. He asked me about the pens and offseason moves because during the playoffs and finals we'd talk about the games every saturday.

"Holy shit," I said to myself.

"Hockey already?"

This is what happens when you win back-to-back Stanley Cups.

The off-season is short!

:D

Remember a few things. Rutherford has targeted 3 centers he might make a play for. Sullivan also chimed in saying that he could make it work with what there is at the moment.
The Pens also gave a tryout contract to Jay McClement who is older but a solid PK'er. Maybe he is the 4th center and they give Rowney a chance at the third center.

One thing to remember also, there are going to be more new faces this season then the past few so Rutherford and Sullivan have to see what they have with the newbies. I'm thinking that Ruthivan are going to give it a month or more to see what they have/what they need before making a move. Talking about the youngsters and seeing who might surprise, who might disappoint, and from there they will have a better idea of the pieces they could use to acquire the third center if needed.
Ruthivan is no hurry to make a deal that could back fire IMO.

Thankfully this offseason was longer than last year with the World Cup. Even though it wasn't particularly intense, Sid and others hand a handful of games tacked onto their bodies and I figured that fatigue would impact their attempt at back to back more than anything else

On an odd note the Oregon Ducks have an offensive guard named Lemieux and an offensive tackle named Crosby.

Yep, and that goes to show that the fucking hockey season is far too long. They won't do it, but they need to eliminate either regular season games or teams eligible for the postseason. It's great watching the Penguins win the Cup but it's in fucking June for cripes sake.

Pens are the greatest. Still celebrating. I’ll be in Nashville this weekend wearing my gear.

I'd argue that they need to start the regular season earlier. Yea I think they could shave a few games off, but the owners won't like that. Hockey should be done by Memorial Day, full stop.
