    Possibly but calling up another will eat away at our cap space and once Schultz returns we will be tight again.

    Once the deadline has passed (assuming we don’t get any cap savings in trade) we will need that for call ups if we are hit with a bunch of injuries. JR’s first year we had to play with 5 D men for some of the end of the season because we had no cap room to bring guys up.

    Thanks for the insight! We will hit up JT Schmid's, it is always so good to see how well Pens (and Steelers, though I am not a fan) fans travel, or have relocated, or whatever... If you see a dorkish looking dad wearing a Orpik Winter Classic sweater, with son sporting home #87 colors, give a shout and a pint is on me. I'm going to need a beer or two at a minimum as the kid talked me into Knott's Berry Friday morning/afternoon. You are lucky to live here. Did usual LA tourist stuff today, Universal and Griffith Park/Observatory, and we're staying at a sweet AirBnB in Long Beach. Cali is pretty amazing, the ladies are just spectacular, but can't figure out how to afford it! Yes, that means both California, and the ladies...

    Why did the old coot promote Wilson again? He’s awful.

    Not sure if Noble Ale Works is kid friendly, but I'd suggest that spot as a pregame before the event. You can park there and walk over to the arena. Killllller beer.

    Got a parking pass already, but open to anything. My son presents as much more adult than does his father, in any case... Are you going to either game, Pixies? Would enjoy a debate as to Kim D's best bass lines in person..

    Don't look now, but the Pens have a 1 point lead on the BJs for second place in the Metro, and the BJs no longer have a game in hand. 4 points back from Washington.

    Bummed to hear it, but all for a worthy cause. I'll look forward to the Deal debate in the future. 'Hey' is an interesting call, I'm more old school, 'Here comes your man', maybe, but I dunno, need to think more. Got a great Breeders story for you sometime.

    Yea, i'm happy for him.
    And well, it just means another trip to nice weather like the previous 2 ASG's in Tampa and LA.
    Go, have some fun. Have some laughs. You deserve it man.

    I'm happy for him for the recognition, but we desperately need him healthy...I wish he would pull an Ovie and not go..

    Haha, Geno is the man. Anyone who thinks he's disgruntled with his role here just needs to read this.

    I'm imagine Letang's pretty meh about it too, I imagine for the vets they'd rather have the time off with their families.

    Hard to argue since he has 8 goals and 11 points in the 8 games since he signed

    I say it’s time to split the PP into 2 units. First unit has zero interest in back checking (unless it’s Hornqvist) so split it up and get 2 defensemen on each unit. (And get Rikola back in..). The carelessness and complete lack of effort or sense of urgency is embarrassing. The kopitar goal was a killer and NEVER should have happened.

    On a positive note, Sid and Jake playing the PK makes me so happy. It’s too bad we waited this long to use Sid like this.
