    as long as he's good enough that the other team can't just focus on the other side, he should be ok.

    So not paired with Addison/POJ but there he is in the top 4 already. I was wrong, someone went and did it. :laugh:

    Is that a few years down the road or are you going all in with him next year?

    Surprising but I guess it makes sense since they don't want him to go to Free Agency next summer.

    WBS defense is going to be loaded and there is still Riikola who they might try and send down.

    Warsofsky - Trotman
    Czuczman - Marino
    Almari - POJ

    More depth is always a good thing. The variable to consider here (that we can't conclusively know) is the QUALITY of the depth. But it does appear as though we're trending in a positive direction.

    This is an interesting statement. Anyone know how his development was accelerated? Graduations/injuries force him to the top pair or something?

    There's another Marino associated with the Pens that committed the ultimate sin - refusing to pay our lord and savior #66 his salary. **** that guy. That deferred salary became equity and gave us the Lemieux Group ownership. So uh, it kind of worked out. But seriously, **** that guy.

    I'll drop my search on Marino tonight in here as well.
    Some good stuff reading back in this thread too:

    I'm trying to dig a little deeper on Marino.
    Seems he was the underrated RD on Harvard's team that iced Adam Fox and Reilly Walsh.



    I sorta figured once i looked at their roster with what i've seen in the rookie tourney, etc. that this guy must've been behind bigger named guys there and helped doing the dirty work needed.

    Scored a beauty of a goal here:



    Watch the 10 and 2 skating here:



    More in the next post(3 twitter post maximum/post)

    Another goal of his:



    Also several tweets of him hitting iron(the posts). Heh.
    Not surprising as we've seen he likes to shoot the puck.





    MORE...

    Seems this driving the net thing he likes to do even shorthanded...



    Also seeing in these tweets he played exclusively RD. When he played with another righty(Welsh), Welsh played the off side.

    Cool story about him and his twin brother, Paul.

    Better Together Than Apart | Sports | The Harvard Crimson

    Looks like he's pretty used to that move he pulled off tonight:



    And yea the dude plays with an edge. Roughing calls in these tweets and hits with head contact.

    How bout a save...

    How bout a hip check...



    5on3 PP goal:



    His first NCAA goal was shorthanded...



    I'll finish it off with Dobber's who with the writeups you can tell just how underrated he has been.

    John Marino

    I think the talent was sorta sapped away while he was there Donato going pro, etc. and he played behind more offensive guys or rather they were given more offensive looks.
    I just wanted to have a look around at just exactly what he was and did at Harvard.

    Riikola 2.0. Don’t be tempted.

    Drop him to the A. Give him steady minutes. Build him as a prospect in the Pens system. It’ll do wonders. POJ should be the first call up.

    Early impressions are favorable but certainly too early to draw any conclusions.

    He’s looked good but wise to temper expectations. Let him grow into being a top player in the AHL and then sustain that performance before tossing him into the fire.

    POJ ain’t gonna be the first call-up @pixiesfanyo.

    So after seeing him, maybe JR wasn't just blowing smoke.

    Also, self-quote! :p:

    Definitely agree they should start him in the AHL, don't agree that POJ should be the first call up. First call up should be whoever is playing best at the time unless it is a "just in case someone can't go" call up which is when you call up one of the vets for hopefully just pressbox nacho duty.

    POJ needs time as much as Marino and in any case, whichever of them would be the first call up would be determined by which side of the D the issue's on (currently LD, but RD gets injured far more often). In any case, Warsofsky/Churchman/Trotman can handle call ups until such time as the kids are 100% ready.

    Once a player joins the Pens he becomes Job.

    Like The Santa Clause, only with long-term injuries.

    Friedman's 31 thoughts, a small Penguins note:

    31 Thoughts: How Brayden Point's contract impacts the RFA market - Sportsnet.ca

    You can thank the Oilers firing Chiarelli for why the Penguins were able to get Marino. It seems like it's beyond Pittsburgh now that thinks Marino is going to be a special player.
