    Baby Pens chased $4-some-odd million dollar Scott Darling. :laugh:

    Saw 10 minutes or so of this. Blueger's pretty quick. If Johnson finished his breakaways he'd be an NHLer.

    Blueger seems quicker than he did last year. I'm not sure if it is his skating or mental quickness but I thought it was noticeable.

    Caught some of it too.
    Liked Bluegs, Angello and Johnson with a little Jarry too.

    He’s always been very quick, he’s just really good on his edges and makes fast decisions with the puck. The only knock on his game now that’s he’s become a finisher is he’s just not a straight ahead blazer, but whatever, he can really skate well and it’s not even a slight issue IMHO.

    He can even do really nifty things like take a pass and pass to his teammates...

    Yeah, Jarry looked solid. Nothing fancy, just good tracking and very quick to be in the right position. Thought he looked a little lost at sea at times when the Checkers took the play behind the net but it didn't bite him in the butt so all good. Someone else is gonna get a good goaltender there I think, makes me a little sad but that's the business.

    But can he hit a guy 3 seconds after he moved a puck?

    That takes a special kind of talent he doesn’t possess. TB is too busy doing other things, like being good at hockey.

    The ol' Tanner Glass special. Sorry, you said hit a guy 3 seconds after moving the puck, not "gently bump a guy but still be rewarded for a hit by the statistician" 3 seconds after moving the puck.

    The Brooks Orpik special is to hit a guy onto your own goaltender 3 seconds after he scores. Then blame your teammates for having a bad game.

    Brown, Prow, Taylor scored in a 5-3 loss.

    Hirano and Lacroix signed to AHL contracts

    Hirano has 16 points in his last 13, so it looks like there might be something there now that he's adjusted. Lacroix is just a goon/checking player from the looks of it so less exciting.

    Yea, Hirano has settled in nicely.
    Lacroix is one of those 2 way grinders they like. Scored a shorty in one of Wheeling's last games.

    He's on pace to be a nice Koltsov - Fata mix

    Also, damn! Maybe Pittsburgh could use an AHL team. :naughty:

    Fan fridays are an awesome deal. $2 Lion's head drafts, you can walk in sober and be sufficiently buzzed before the game starts. All for around $20

    Lion's head! I haven't had that in like 20 years.

    I wonder what drafts run at PPG now.

    Lion's head is a Wilkes Barre beer so it's always around up there

    PPG has a bunch of stuff. North Country from Slippery rock, Hell Town, the usual labatt/yuengling/etc.

    Am I missing something, is Will O’Neil injured or just scratched?

    I'm assuming scratched. He's been real bad.

    Angello's doing that scoring thing again...up 2-1 after 1. Militec and Trotman are back.



    Lineup is:

    He ended up potting two tonight and killed Kevin Porter.

    He’s pretty much what they think ZAR is.
