4-4 on the 5 on 3, Recchi nailing home the rebound, I think it hit off Staal too before it got to DiPietro.

Me either.

Yeah this team is fun to watch because they can get themselves out of a jam. However, that's the weakness. But hell, this team can't be overhauled overnight. We have a lot of the young guys stepping up.

Brooks has been playing well as of late (last few games i had seen). Whitney is really getting better. Sometimes it's hard to be patient, alot of these guys are like 23-25.

Like i said we need another eaton type and two solid wingers (either one develops, or we get some),

Your boy Ryan Malone with the hat trick, Josh. He did a nice job of outhustling the defender in front of the net to get the rebound on the Crosby shot.

5-4 PIT. 4 assists for Sid.

Simon strikes back just as he did earlier in the game. 5-5.

Fleury really is having a poor night.

I like malone, but he frustrates me worse than just about any player on the pens.

He's got talent to be a 25g scorer every year. With at least 5 of those being GW's. I don't nec. want him traded - just because he has clutch moments. But there are times when i'd like to throw shiate at him.

Default Penguins looking to make move

http://www.thefourthperiod.com/news/pit070221.html

Penguins GM Ray Shero told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review if there's a trade that makes sense, he's willing to pull the trigger.

Before leaving for the three-day GM meetings that continue today in Naples, FL., Shero met with his coaches and scouting staff to put together a trade deadline game-plan.

"We met as a group and went through it again as to where we were, what we thought could help our team, what we thought about our chemistry and what we're trying to accomplish with this group," Shero told the paper.


"I've talked to plenty of teams, that's the job, and if it makes sense for us we'll look to do something."

According to the Tribune-Review, the Pens are looking at Chicago Blackhawks center Bryan Smolinski, who is also attracting interest from such teams as Montreal and Vancouver, and St. Louis Blues winger Bill Guerin, a hot commodity as the deadline nears.

The Penguins are also in the market for an upgrade on the blueline, and while the team is supposedly eyeing Los Angeles Kings rearguard Aaron Miller, the Tribune-Review claims the Pens have an interest in Canadiens defenseman Craig Rivet.

Rumor has it that the Pens & Coyotes have a deal in the works that would send Georges Laraque to Pittsburgh (no word on what would go the other way). That'd be a great move for the Pens, they get a legit enforcer to protect their franchise players and they get one who can actually play a little bit.

I've always liked Laraque from his Edmonton days, I hope you guys land him.

Like Laroque. Roberts is done. Didn't improve your defense, but nice pickup on Nolan Schaefer.

Sorry if this was already posted iam too lazy to look...

Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins became the youngest player in NHL history to reach the 200-point plateau Friday night.
Crosby recorded his 200th career point with a goal in the Penguins’ game versus the Carolina Hurricanes. Crosby achieved the milestone at the age of 19 years, 207 days, breaking the mark set by Wayne Gretzky in the 1980-81 season.

Rendell says arena deal close but could unravel

By Mark Belko, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Gov. Ed Rendell said yesterday that state and local officials were "very close" to an agreement with the Penguins on a new arena, but tempered his optimism with a warning that the deal could still unravel and the team could end up in Kansas City.

Default Penguins to aggressively explore relocation

http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/news/story?id=2788701

PITTSBURGH -- The Penguins moved a step closer to leaving Pittsburgh, declaring on Monday an impasse in their new arena negotiations with state and local leaders and saying they will actively pursue relocation.

The breakdown in arena talks came only three days after Gov. Ed Rendell said he felt an agreement was close. It also increases the possibility the Penguins will be playing in Kansas City next season.

"We have made a single-minded effort to bring this new arena to a successful conclusion and keep the team in Pittsburgh," owners Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle said in a letter to Rendell and local government officials. "... Our good-faith efforts have not produced a deal, however, and have only added more anxiety to what we thought at best was a risky proposition for us moving forward."

In the letter, Lemieux and Burkle put the blame for the impasse on government officials, arguing they agreed to pay $120 million over 30 years to help build a $290 million arena and cover construction cost overruns, yet still have not reached a deal.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman became involved in the talks several weeks ago, but also has been unable to finalize an agreement.

"We can do no more," Lemieux, the longtime Penguins star, and Burkle said in the letter.

The Penguins had an agreement with Isle of Capri Casinos to build the arena at no expense to the team or taxpayers in exchange for a license to build a Pittsburgh slots casino, but a state board in December chose a competing bid.

On Jan. 4, the team, state, city and Allegheny County began negotiating an alternate arena funding plan. At the time, government officials were asking for the team to contribute about $4.1 million per year but suggested they were willing to come down.

However, the amount being sought from the team has changed little, according to the Penguins' calculations.

Kansas City has offered its nearly completed Sprint Center to the Penguins rent-free. The Penguins would also gain revenue from development projects around the arena.

However, the Penguins would be leaving one of the NHL's strongest U.S. markets for a smaller one that lost an NHL team in 1976 after only two seasons because of lack of support. The Penguins' home attendance and local TV ratings are among the strongest of the 24 United States-based franchises.

When Lemieux's group bought the team in federal bankruptcy court in 1999, the Hall of Fame player said he did so to ensure the team's existence in Pittsburgh.

The Penguins' hardball negotiating stance comes with the team contending for a playoff spot for the first time in six years. A youthful team led by NHL scoring leader Sidney Crosby and rookies Evgeni Malkin and Jordan Staal has become one of the league's prime attendance draws.

At home, the Penguins are playing to nearly 96 percent of arena capacity for the season. All of their remaining nine home games are expected to attract standing-room-only crowds.

The Penguins also have begun selling season tickets for the 2007-08 season in Pittsburgh, even though they have not agreed to play there another season.

"They're tough negotiators," Rendell said.

Don't worry Josh, we are just trying to squeeze the last bit out of Rendell and Co. It is widely reported that we are close on financial terms, there is agreement on rent, agreement on the development rights issue and now the cost overrun issue with the bonds has been agreed to, although the interest on the bonds are still a little bit of a problem. We are almost there. We are just trying to shake these guys up to sweeten it up a little more. They arent going anywhere. In fact, there was supposed to be a conference call tonight between the LG, Rendell, Onorato, Ravenstahl and Bettman to try and work at these things.

Everything will be fine.

Hope the KC deal goes through so I can watch Mr. Crosby and the other young studs on this team. What can I expect regarding ticket prices? How much is the average Avs tickets?
