that is a very good meme

Sure, but what if I'M wrong and YOU'RE right? Did you think about that?!

That’s an outstanding meme.

Not surprised Burgh is trying to unload that awful contract.

The good news is that Rutherford now knows the real reason Johnson sat down the stretch in 2018.

The better news is that no GM is going to trade for him, so Pittsburgh is stuck with a bad defenseman with a big salary.

Kessel nixed the deal to Minnesota because he wants to go where there's a chance to win soon.

The deal would have moved Zucker, an under-performing forward, to Pitt. I read an article that seemed to say that this means the Pens have lost all leverage in negotiations.

If they get desperate enough, does Jarmo have a case for bringing this old "uncoachable" Cup Champ to C-Bus? Who goes in the trade?

I would trade Wennberg for Kessel, straight up. 

Before you laugh, it shaves about $2M off the Penquins' salary cap issues and at the same time they get about seven years younger, something the Pens also need to work on. The CBJ get a winger with proven scoring ability for the post-Panarin era, even if he is on the "back nine" of his career.

It sounds like a win-win to me. :-)
