    ZAR settled in nicely after his first 3-4-5 games or so then i believe he got injured in season that sorta derailed his momentum.
    He checks hard. Willing to battle/go to the net front.
    He probably settles in to a bottom 6 checker.
    Things he needs are a touch more speed/explosiveness and quicker decisions with the puck on his blade.

    Casey's a competitor, good positioning and scramble ability. Good glove. On the smaller side but tops out as an NHL backup/Budaj type.

    What's the scoop on Almari? I believe he has one year left on his HPK contact, but hasn't been signed to his ELC yet.

    First off, I hope everyone is ok.

    Second, ARE YOU ****ING KIDDING ME?! The bizarre injury curse continues.

    That's not what I'm concerned about, I'm concerned about him not dying. This sounds pretty serious, so I'm really not going to worry about how weird the Penguins injury issues have been.

    That goes without saying, hence the first part of my post.

    It's tough not to think about the illnesses and accidents that have plagued the franchise. Commenting on it doesn't take away from our concern for them on a human level.
