    We'd like to introduce our new assistant GM...

    We've heard the fans. We know they want younger personnel. People familiar with social media life. No more dinosaurs. No more jobs given without merit.

    With that said, we welcome...








    Austin Lemieux to our front office.

    Vellucci will probably be named the assistant GM if Guerin gets hired. He'll serve the same role as he did in Carolina, assistant GM and AHL head coach and GM.

    Boy things have been dead silent on the penguins front besides the Bill Guerin interviews.

    Dont we still have to trade someone?, or is there otherwise to be cap compliant.

    The Canes also didn’t make the playoffs for a decade. They better have something to show for it.

    Canes have defenseman up the ying yang. I image Priskie will spend the whole year in the AHL (with maybe some spot call up time due to injury). Fluery and McKeown are both out of options and need to be with the big team full time. Jake Bean had a very good 1st year in the AHL. Bean's better than Fluery, McKeown or Priskie. Thinking they will still make a move yet....

    Going by hand:

    LD
    Slavin
    Fleury
    Bean
    Forsling

    RD
    Hamilton
    Pesce
    Faulk
    TVR
    Priskie
    McKeown

    AGM (as well as GM, in some franchises) is more of a compensation classification than a set of duties. Sort of like "Senior Vice President." Within that job title, a lot of different things can be delegated by superiors. At one point, Karmanos' job was to build out a new department and integrate the feedback into hockey operations. Botterill's job at the same time was financial management. Very little overlap between the two functions.

    I do agree with you that none of us really have a good idea of what Bill Guerin has been doing on a daily basis for the last 8 years, at least before he was acting as Wilkes-barre's GM.

    That looks like an awful nice defense when you sort it out like that. I'm not a huge fan of Trevor VanRiemsdyk, but 4th on the depth chart on RD? That's a comfortable spot to be in when somebody gets hurt.

    Surprised Priskie picked an org with such depth given he was meant to want to not want to hit up the Caps due to depth things.

    Rutherford says they can manage to be cap compliant without trades if needed, but we'll still probably trade. Waiting for someone to match his price.

    I think it's more than just someone meeting his price at this point...radio silence everywhere points to the fact that nothing will happen trade-wise until the RFA dominos fall and that's looking to be right before training camp. There are other teams worse than the Pens cap wise (like NYR) and who need to make trades and they're not accomplishing anything either. I doubt we'll be able to make a trade before the season starts. I'll be really surprised if we don't just tender Petts at a cheap one-year deal and make a trade as needed November or December.

    They could go short a couple of players to start the season and wait for about a week into training camp when three or four players inevitably go onto long term IR.

    I’ll be disappointed if one of them isn’t JJ...I know I’ve developed an allergy to his play on the ice...he should be allergic to it as well...

    Given how he negatively impacted Malkin last year Malkin might accidental catch JJ with his stick 32 times.
