It would be 16 Pens easy if not for the God Mode Geno factor, which makes it a close call IMO.

e: critical factor: 09 attitudes toward headhunting or 16 attitudes? Because probably Cooke would KO 16 Letang within the first 10 minutes of the series

This. I'm 30 tomorrow and I've never drank either, mostly because alcoholism runs rampant in my family.

I've seen the results from enough Christmas Parties, St. Paddy's Days, late night legion runs and other family friend parties to know that alcohol is not meant for me.

Plus I have trouble giving up pop and candy right now, I don't want to add booze to that list.

Also I say enough stupid poo poo on these boards sober, imagine me drunk posting about the Pirates.

Yeah Scuderi went to Chicago for Daley and then to LA for Ehrhoff, but man did Rutherford have some kind of year fleecing people on trades. Kessel for a decent prospect and a first, Bonino plus a lottery ticket for Brandon Sutter, Hagelin for Perron, Daley for the literal worst player in the NHL and the Penguins didn't even eat his entire contract, Jultz for basically nothing. The team was completely transformed in a few months' time, and not just by the coaching change.

The Penguins' sudden and years-overdue willingness to let young guys like Sheary and Rust and Kuhnhackl play instead of burying them behind old never-weres was a welcome development too.

I wonder what team is going to overpay for Schultz and then put him into a top 4 pairing. I'd like to see him stay, but someone is going to offer him stupid cash.

No-one.
There are two Schultzes in the league, and neither of them are overpay material.

Although, there is a Jim Benning.

I would like to see the Penguins replace Lovejoy and/or Jultz by just letting Derrick Pouliot play for at least like 3 months and seeing if he steps up or not. I'd rather do that before giving him away pretty much for free, which it feels like is what the Pens are probably going to do.

No, apparently he's just never felt the need to drink.

Yeah not that it's any of our business if he really had never touched alcohol in his life by age 30 then it's about 100% that he either would rather not tell the media about his tortured family history of alcoholism or would rather not tell the media about his superfaith. I wouldn't want to tell the media about either of those things, either. That poo poo's private.

What attitude problem?

Seeing reports that Calgary has cooled off on trying to trade for Fleury because Rutherford wants their sixth overall pick for it. That's smart on Calgary's end, but I don't think Rutherford is being foolish with his approach either. There is no necessary reason to trade Fleury at this exact moment, so why not shoot for the stars, especially with Andersen off the market?

He speaks kind of oddly but he's pretty articulate and honest, and very self deprecating. He's not a great player but he's entertaining in interviews.

Nah, sounds like he genuinely doesn't drink alcohol just because he doesn't want to. My cousin is like that. No history of alcoholism in the family, not in the least bit religious, he just doesn't like the idea. His wife insisted he have a sip of champagne at his wedding. The ensuing grimace made it look like he'd been forced to drink poison. It's kind of part of his identity too. He'd just always be DD when people went out, and usually got to drink pop for free all evening and then people would get drunk and buy him food too. He loved it.

Some people just don't drink, all power to them.

I'm just a little disappointed that Phil's day with the cup didn't include any acknowledgement of Hot Dog-gate, though I suppose it probably ended up being a sore spot for him in the end (or maybe he doesn't really use the internet in which case he wouldn't know about its existence). Oh well, Good Guy Philip took it to a children's hospital in Toronto and shared it with a bunch of unwell Canadian children so it's still pretty :unsmith:
