    Gotta follow WBS some. New coach/GM. Excited for their development cause the new guy won with the Canes farm team last season, and seems to develop guys to be NHL ready.

    Pens still have a lot of speed to utilize down at the WBS level. All that’s missing really is a couple of tough guys

    WBS should be fun to follow this year. Much better overall talent than last year. I'm looking forward to seeing the final rosters all the way down to Wheeling. Too early to tell where Larmi falls be he will be a blast to watch.

    Pretty impressive for pre season.
    We’re looking fast, which is promising.

    Late round 2019 draft pick.
    I don’t really follow canadian minors, so I can’t say much about him.

    3rd round pick. Some draft ratings had him as a late 1st rounder. The rap on him was his skating/change of direction was in need of development. At 18 he already has an NHL shot. The other intangible is he great friends with Sam Poulin the Pens 1st rounder. Both kids are power forwards. Both guys need a year or two of development in my opinion. We have rushed prospects before and rarely got the result. Reading up on these guys around draft time their character and work ethic stood out. What I can't wait to see is their progression this time next year.

    Oh ok, so he’s the friend of Poulin. I think both guys will be solid Pens.
    Right now, our franchise seems to have good team chemistry in the making.

    We don’t have Sids or Genos replacement though.
    Those generational talents are hard to come by in any sport.

    The depth at WBS will look better than it has in years. I think we have Guerin to thank for that. Not to mention upgrading the coach. Replacing generational talent is going to take a couple of horrible seasons and a little luck.

    They played Jarry the whole distance. He just isn't DeSmith. Made some great saves, but leaves the net open a lot.


    Brutal night in Pitt sports.

    I like Jarry's style, he's aggressive and can play the puck. Bad news is he is prone to being out of position. I would have thought that would have been coached out of him by now.

    What a shit day for Pittsburgh sports. Fortunately the Pens are still in preseason. Today I learned that it's not easy to watch hockey and football at the same time.

    I like that Marino kid. Tall, strong on the puck.
    Riikola looks hesitant to shoot this year. He has a nasty one timer. Thought he would’ve ripped one off towards the end of the 3rd period.

    It's hard to watch really bad football. I have high hopes for the hockey season. At least a lot of times you don't know if your team is cup winning caliber until late in the year. The Steelers? We already know they are not hoisting any trophies this year. That's a shitty realization 3 games in.

    I would like to see Marino hit the gym. He gets pushed around, especially in front of the next. I really like his potential. Riikola frustrates me. I see flashes of every part of the skillset but no consistency. He's had a year to figure out the NHL rinks. I like Joseph, another guy that needs to bulk up.

    It's a luxury to have 3 guys that you could add to the roster. Maybe not this year but next year I bet all three are in the NHL.

    I'm unusually optimistic about the Pens at this point. Sure, there are the usual questions but without seeing the full roster in action. GMJR still needs to clear cap space this week.

    Steelers ? I'm disappointed to say the least. They are really the only NFL I watch. I'm glad the circus is over but the Ringmaster is still there.

    Nice practice game win over the redwings this evening 4-2. I see the big boys getting on the score sheet. I am actually looking forward to watching a lot of hockey this year since I'll have center ice.

    Good win and should build some confidence especially with Crosby and Letang getting their first ice time of the year. I was disappointed that Galchenyuk was nursing a lower body injury. Chucky is going to be a key this year. The puzzler is that Kahun really hasn't shown much. We something from him.

    Galchenyuk’s off ice work ethic is legit. Hope his injury is nothing too serious.
    This guy should be promising paired with Malkin.

    I think Kahun will move down in the ahl for a conditioning stint soon.
    He needs more confidence.

    First game I've watched this pre-season. Good game. I'm still worried about goal tending.
