Phil Kessel for Artemi Panarin (Panarin not signed) In the next few week. Yay or NAY?
pens dont need a rental, kessel at 6.8 is a sweet deal, panarin might be better going forward but his cap hit will be high.
This. Also, although I think Panarin would resign in Pitts, there is still a risk that he walks. Bad for the Pens.
idea isn't bad but pens say no
sometimes pens fans blow my mind
I would do it in a heartbeat if Im Pittsburg, Panarin is a much better and smarter hockey player while Piitsburg are in win now mode... Malkin already looks irritated to play with low hockey IQ Phil Kessel...
Panarin is much better than Phil Kessel.
If I think I can re-sign Panarin I do this in a heart beat.
Phil playing for Torts would be hilarious.
#1 The CBJ would never give the best player in the deal to the pens
#2 Panarin wouldnt sign in Pitts
#3 You arent getting any of our good players... ever
But what about Jack Johnson?
See now you understand =)
If they want Jared Boll to comenout of retirement and play on Malkins wing we can talk haha
I'd rather keep Boll; he looks like he might be a decent broadcaster someday.
This is a joke right?
That's gonna be a no for me, dawg.
Kessel has looked crappy this year and should be traded next off-season to re-sign Brassard, but there's not a chance in hell you trade him before you have to during the season. His big value is in his playoff play.
Doubt Panarin signs with Pens, it doesn't even look like he'll sign with the jackets. It seems like he really wants to test free agency and i can't blame him, lot better options for him out there than the Blue Jackets.
If Panarin would sign an extension at 6.8m - even if only for 3 years, absolutely. But right now Kessel's cost certainty does more for Pittsburgh then Panarin's skill level and ability to play LW.
This is flat out impossible as Kessel isn't waiving his modified NTC to go play for Torts.
I also think Columbus would rather eat a bowl of dog vomit than trade Panarin to us.
I can see why CBJ and PIT might do it, but Kessel?
It took him well over a year to land a permanent slot on the top two lines. Why leave now that he is playing with one of the top, what, three to five best centers in the world? Why leave to go to a divisional opponent that can't beat his current team in the playoffs? Why leave to play for a coach who by all appearances would be predisposed to dislike his approach to the game?
Kessel with Torts? Oh boy...
There are no permanent winger slots on the Pens and he's losing his spot next to Geno at a rate of knots for what its worth.
The rest of its spot on though.
