Murray has just been activated from IR (Jarry sent to WBS)

I'd assume DeSmith starts tonight and Murray sees action in the back-to-back this weekend.

Edit - Hornqvist has been IR'd as well

Four years ago the Blackhawks were considered a dynasty, now they are talking about blowing the team up including trading Toews.
They have owned us the past two years including a nasty 10-1 loss at the start of last years season.


Penguins projected lineup
Jake Guentzel -- Sidney Crosby -- Derick Brassard

Tanner Pearson -- Evgeni Malkin -- Phil Kessel

Zach Aston-Reese -- Riley Sheahan -- Bryan Rust

Garrett Wilson -- Derek Grant -- Jean-Sebastien Dea

Brian Dumoulin -- Kris Letang

Olli Maatta -- Jamie Oleksiak

Marcus Pettersson -- Jack Johnson

Casey DeSmith

Matt Murray

Scratched: Chad Ruhwedel, Juuso Riikola

Injured: Justin Schultz (left leg fracture), Matt Cullen (lower body), Dominik Simon (lower body), Patric Hornqvist (upper body)

Yep. 8:00 PM puck drop (7 to those of us in the central time zone)

Who's going to pay $10.5m/year for a guy that hasn't put up 60 points since signing his big $ deal? Guys like Barkov and Bergeron are making half that and are just as productive two way players.

Chicago has gone the way of the Red Wings. They vastly overpaid for their own players at their peak, and are now stuck in cap hell. You could make a strong argument that Duncan Keith's contract is the worst in the NHL. Brent Seabrook is an albatross as well, and then there's Corey Crawford (yikes). They need to blow their roster up ASAP and tank for Jack Hughes.

And Chicago has some good young talent (ahem, Pens), but yeah, they won’t be able to hang onto even those guys with the way their current contracts are structured. They got their cups (three in 5 years is a crazy good run) but this is the result.

Toews seems like a douche tho.

Maybe Seattle? It would be a tough trade and I'll wager he has a movement clause.

Think back a decade, it could have been Crosby/Malkin and Toews. That Toews was included in the greatest 100 is a real joke. Sure he is an excellent two way player and a fine captain but his numbers just don't add up.

I still think it's worse that Malkin wasn't.

What a garbage goal to give up.

Pens were a total clusterfuck in their zone. The Blackhawks are not a good hockey team. Problem is I don’t think the Pens are that good either.

Guentzel with the turnover then looks absolutely lost on defense

Weird game, like the Pens came out and let the Hawks dictate. Considering that the Hawks played last night the Pens should have come out and made the initial push.

This Pens team hasn't found the need to be desperate yet this season. They are at their best when the swarm the net like they did on the Rust goal-that has been missing far too often this season.

There you go, the bottom 6 just keeps coming and Rust(of all players) gets the second one.

Holy shit, Crosby just ragged Toews all over the ice. Fifteen seconds of 'fuck you'. Made the game worthwhile.
