I generally agree an enforcer is a wasted roster spot. However this year a 3 time Stanley Cup winning GM thought that roster spot was worth a gamble to try to do something to help a team that had lost more man games to injury than any other team over the last half decade. Maybe he should have consulted with the super genius first.


The same 3-time Stanley Cup-winning GM that hired a junior coach to manage the aspirations of a Stanley Cup contender with Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby? The junior coach who hadn't sniffed an NHL head coaching position and whose meager NHL experience ended six years before getting hired. That one?

The same GM that traded for Jordan Staal and gave up huge assets, even though Staal had the Penguins over a barrel, declining their new contract offer and stating he wanted to play with his brother?

Seems like an easily identifiable, terrible mistake ended up being an easily identifiable, terrible mistake.

The league has been trending away from the goons and the "protectors." Maybe Reaves is "more" than that (lol), but he certainly came in to be a "goon" and "enforce" the game. All the interviews after the trade and even today are about that. This antiquated thought hasn't come to fruition as JR hoped. Surprise!

Bit of mental gymnastics there on the man games lost. Dating things back more than half a decade makes it even more questionable, as the Penguins roster was completely different and even employed more "tough guys" during that time frame than it does now.

Anyway, in order to bring that up as an argument, you'd have to assume:
A) A large chunk of injuries occurred because the Penguins stars or players in general were not being protected
B) If there were such a protector, the Penguins stars/players would not experience injuries

But those are falsehoods you know to be untrue that you're using to form an argument to make yourself feel better. You all lost because you were wrong. I was right. I will continue to let you know that.


Dude, You should definitely seek professional psychiatric help, because, while I don't give a rat's ass about your health, I don't want you killing a bunch of other innocent people one of these days when you explode.

This is easily one of the best threads in the history of the Pittsburgh Sports forum.

Reaves 2/15 vs. LAK
1 G
0 A
1 Pt
7:11 TOI
+1

Reaves was mostly awful in the first period, committing an awful offensive zone penalty on a poor forecheck. This was after he failed to score on a breakaway earlier in the game, though he was held up a bit. Reaves was able to use a quick shot to break the ice, which is actually the second time (Vegas game last week being the first) that he's drawn first blood for the team in a week. Kudos to Ryan for doing one of the things a 4th line player is supposed to do on the Penguins--score goals.

His season pace is now
79 GP
4 G
4 A
-13
:roll:


Here in the Ryan Reaves thread, we're about to embark on Aston-"Reaves" watch. What is this? Well, Aston-Reese would have been the perfect 4th liner for this team coming out for the season. He's a young player with fresh legs and something to prove. The best thing? He wouldn't have cost a first round pick. I guess the team has to "protect its stars" or something. So, let's see how quickly Aston-Reese can catch Ryan Reaves in points. "But Hacksaw! That's unfair! He plays with Sid a lot!"

It's almost like he's a better...player? For this team? Or something?

Ryan Reaves season total: 56 GP 4 G 3 A 7 P
Zach Aston-Reese season total: 6 GP 3 G 1 A 4 P

Let the race begin!
