    To be fair Niskanen also had a nice career revitaliztion in Pittsburgh as well and Gudbranson played rather well in the short time he played.

    When your a team in win now mode you do have to take some chances on players who can turn it around as young players are usually still developing

    This is the contract the leafs should have given him last year, good deal for the pens.

    He played 20+ min a game last season, with Rielly his most common D partner on the top pairing. It's not a stretch for a team to give him a 3rd pairing role

    Forget the dumb thing he said, why is he responding to that poster and talking about the Leafs? It has nothing to do with what the OP said.

    Penguins must have a great goalie. This has just gotta be some sort of psy ops against the rest of the teams in the league. This is chess at a different level:laugh:

    Oof, funny you say that. Actually the first time we took your worst D worked out pretty well for us, pretty sure we got to the eastern finals game 7 overtime vs the 3 times cup champs. Pretty rich comment considering Phaneuf only has 7 games played in the playoffs PLAYED in his long tenure with the maple leafs with not a single playoff series win LOL. Great team you got there. 3 of the biggest contracts and that playoff series win still eludes you, even after shipping off your “worst D” to ottawa, ouch bro! Tough comment

    And the Karlsson trade is widely regarded as one of the best trades of the last few years

    We possibly got 3 top centers for it.

    Stuetzle
    Norris
    Tierny

    Have fun with the overpaid divas

    I can't complain about 1.25 million.


    He is definitely capable of playing at that level

    yup , still can't believe how hard Sakic f***ed Dubas on the Kadri trade

    Barrie is mothing more than a ultra soft forward masquerading as a D .

    I agree with you. Everyone acts like Ceci is a minor league defenseman despite playing 20+ minutes a night for the past 4 years and against the other teams top forwards. Last season Ceci had a 83% QOC with 55% defensive zone starts and still managed a 52% EV def. So Ceci played against the other teams best forwards and started against them in his own zone and still held his own. Now it is a stretch that at 26 he can't even play 3rd pairing with the Pens. These message boards are just ridiculous. Letang and Marino are probably the Pens best defenseman and both are RD's and having Ceci behind them at RD he should be in his most sheltered minutes of his career. Last year Ceci played mostly top pairing with the Leafs so this should be a much better situation for him.

    I actually like the pens as a team. It does not give me pleasure to tell you that hell is coming and his name is Cody Nono.

    Pens are known for getting a lot out of the players they sign. Even players you don't expect will do anything. So I wouldn't be surprised if Ceci has a decent year now. lol
