    Something we can all agree is a good idea, Pens talking long term deal with Justin Schultz.


    That guys sucks. Ryan Reaves blew past him to score a goal.

    This is a lot of hand wringing to talk about a guy that is going to displace one of Kuhnhackle, Wilson (Porter, Archibald, Porter, Sestito, Sundqvist or Fehr). Reaves 5x5 ice time of just under 9 minutes is not much different than most of them. What's most noticeable is the two players the Pens tried as skaters that played physically last year (Fehr and Sundqvist) were right in that range too.

    It is a long regular season. Using this guy is going to have no noticeable impact on the teams scoring or chance to make the playoffs. If the Pens decided they want use a spot on someone to take a couple shifts that will wear on the other team, maybe lean some on the other team's defense in a grind, then I'm fine with it. I haven't watched Reaves enough but all indications are he is defensively sound, doesn't take himself out of the play to make a hit and has some skills at shot blocking.

    I've long heard that Obamacare mystically increases responsibility, but I don't see how giving people something for free makes them more responsible. It quite clearly makes them less.


    I know a lot of parents that give their children a pet to teach them responsibility. How misguided of them.

    Ha. Yeah, the first thing I noticed was the Pitt score.

    So now that my Pens ticket from my Vegas trip paid off, I just need Pitt to win the national championship in football to be a big winner (350 to 1).

    Well Rutherford is nothing if not honest. This move is consistent with everything he's said since the middle of the season. He basically said fuck it. If my team has to deal with this shit so will other teams. How many times was he quoted as saying they're going to add a tough guy?

    And I earlier posted the quote about her doesn't give a shit about draft choices.

    Plus we know he targets a player that he thinks fits his needs (see Hainsey).

    So he basically targeted the best of the skating and able to play every day tough guys. He traded a draft choice for him. And Sundquist, more later.

    This guy isn't Sestito. He actually can skate. He's nothing more than a 4th line guy, but he can play at that level.

    The only head scratcher is Sundquist. All I can guess is that they were less thrilled with his performance than they said publically.

    Oh and I think it indicates they'll make every effort to sign Bonino.
