I'm sure this is similar to Cowher or Dungy - the lack of a Cup became such an albatross, and now that he's finally won one he is ready to move on.


Actually seems to be about money.

Quote:
Barry Trotz had a clause in his contract where if he won the Stanley Cup he could accept a two-year extension with a $300k bump in salary. Obviously since he was only making $1.5M, low by today's NHL coach's standards, a $1.8-million salary doesn't cut it. So Trotz stepped down.

I think the Penguins did a great job this draft of valuing guys with talent who also produced. I'm really excited about Addison and Hallander.

As it looks like Phil will stay with the team (thank god) and Jeff Skinner is a hot trade rumor, it really seems like the team wants to make a move for a skilled LW. Keeping salary demands for next year in mind, as discussed earlier, I don't see how Bryan Rust is on the Penguins roster on opening night.

In fact, if I were a betting man, I imagine the team will have these guys shipped out in various trades.

Ignore the actual trade returns and teams involved. Here's what the team would look like with a need for a #7 dman.

This would put the team in a situation where they'd definitely need to shed Hagelin in 19-20 and probably move on from Brassard and go to Sheahan at 3C. Still, this would be a hell of a roster for one year.

I could also see letting Sheahan walk and signing a guy for 4C and/or letting Blueger take it. If having Sheahan make 2.5+ million means you can't resign Brassard next year, see ya Sheahan.

Unfortunately, I don't see a scenario where Kunitz isn't on the team. At the same time, I think ZAR needs more AHL time. So it might be of value to have that corpse take the first 30 or 40 games.


In real news,

Simon and Sprong signed 2-year/750k, one-way deals.

In great news, Kuhnhackl did not receive a qualifying offer!

Neither did Sheahan, but the team is negotiating with him.

Great, great move to get rid of the fodder that was Kuhnhackl!

I'm notholding my breath regarding Kuhn being gone -let's hope

And are you sure about the Phil thing? Seems like rumors are rampant that he wants to be on Sid or Geno's wing

Btw- Pens just signed Rust 4 yrs at $3.5M per

Looking like the Pens have a deal in place with Duclair, working with Jack Johnson.

Sheary and Hunwick both traded to Buffalo for a conditional 4th pick (could end up being a 3rd).

$5.25 Million saved.

I like how this is offseason is shaping up so far. Obviously early, but we're giving ourselves some flexibility while dumping some dead weight.

I'll try and find the tweet but rumors are the Pens are going to use that on Jack Johnson and Kunitz return

Ok on the former, but barf on the latter

I mean at that point I would've rather kept sheary and everyone knows how I hate him
