Panarin/Bobrovsky for Huberdeau, Kiselevich, McGinn, Tippett and Reimer confirmed!
We won't lose the pick. He won't play a single minute for the Penguins unless we have serious injuries
Def just seems like a contract limit move for a team that has two guys that will be quantity for quality trades if they decide to move them .
He's about 12th on the depth chart. Barring most of the Pens and Baby Pens dmen falling into an alternate dimension he isn't going to suit up for 1 game, never mind 10.
There's not even a guarantee that it costs us a pick. If he doesn't play 10 NHL games, he's free. If he does play 10 games, he costs us a 7th.
Not being sarcastic when I ask, is there a point to this trade for the Pens? Like, is WBS really in need of defense right now or something?
Relax, no way he'll play 10 games for the big club unless the condition applies to WBS as well... that's another story.
Not an expert on Germanic names, but I'd say we already had quite a few. Schultz, Güntzel and Ruhwedel. Maybe Kessel? If you count the north Germanics we have Hörnqvist, Pettersson and Bjugstad too.
English is a West Germanic language.
The conditions indicate that this is an AHL move. He isn't playing in the NHL unless everyone gets hurt, or he earns it. If he earns it, he's worth a 7th. I'd bet the house on that not happening.
CBJ wanted the contract spot open and valued the absence of his contract, the Pens want some depth for WBS. Nothing move.
I'm surprised that there is emotion in this thread.
Blue jackets moving out contracts so they can take more back.
The trade is next to meaningless but the transaction itself symbolizes wiping the slate clean between both teams FOs.
Definitely a precursor to something else.
Yeah I wasn't aware of the condition at the time. I don't mind the trade now.
Fiala/Tolvanen and the 1-2 depth pick ups will require a contract spot
But really, why else would Columbus give him away if it wasn't to free up a spot
Ah yes, Siebenaler. The kid we picked 1 spot before Sorokin and 2 spots before Point.
What type of defenseman is he? His numbers are crap in the AHL, so clearly he's not going to be an offensive juggernaut.
They get to do CBJ a favor. Maybe CBJ GM will remember this and be more receptive to a future deal.
That's what they mean by "future considerations", though technically this deal is not FC.
You know, that's a very good question..
I'd be surprised if Blake Siebenaler ever played 10 NHL games based on statistics. Maybe, the Penguins will feel bad enough for the Jacket's that they'll make it the condition if he plays 10 NHL games over his career, counting pre-season games (of course).
Anyways, I kind of liked the pick at the time... Mainly, because he is from Ft. Wayne, Indiana. That's my neck of the woods.
You’re surprised there is an overreaction about anything, especially Penguins related, on HFBoards?
