OHH so the Pens determined the reason for 4 Playoff Flameouts was Gilles Meloche & Tyler Kennedy

as I have said many times it is meaningless what they do in ways of trades & Free Agent signings as long as they have the GM & Coaching staff in charge.

EP, aside from the stupid Letang re-signing, I don’t get why you hate Shero. He gave Bylsma a very good group, and he wasn’t capable of coaching them to their potential. Do you disagree?

You’re right, EP.

Trade Malkin, buy out Crosby, send Letang to the AHL, blow up Neal, fire Shero, crucify Bylsma and kidnap John Tortorella from Vancouver to coach a bunch of grinders and rookie d-men!

Go Bucs, though.

CapGeek doesn’t know yet.  It says to check back later.

Thanks SYF.  I’ve been trying to look for it and haven’t heard.  Everyone said that was the sticking point. 

I’m fine with the deal for the most part, even more when the cap goes up after next year and subsequent years after.
