Penguins Live Chat: UFA Grades, Fans React to Crosby Contract Talk

Dan Kingerski, Pittsburgh Penguins live chat, Sidney Crosby contract discussion

Why hasn’t Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby signed a new contract yet? The topic became a focal point of the Penguins’ live chat with PHN’s Dan Kingerski.

The chat took that left turn, but first, Kingerski graded the Penguins’ offseason acquisitions and free-agent signings and discussed how the Penguins’ lineup would likely shake out. Where will Kevin Hayes fit? How does the bottom six compare to last season? What becomes of Lars Eller?

Once we examined the lineup, we examined the bigger picture of the Penguins’ free-agent contracts, including letting P.O. Joseph walk and signing Matt Grzelcyk for just one year. What could follow—a full rebuild within the next 12 months?

Which young players could crack the lineup in the fall.

Lastly, we turned to the Crosby contract issue and all that it entails: the loyalty, emotion, and direction of the Penguins.

Talk about jumping to conclusions. Stop taking what the media says at face value these guys are barely more clued in than anybody else and their job is to generate views and website traffic. Most recent example is “Ned is gone”

And Ned is here.

No, don’t take “the media’s word.” Yes, we’re all con artists who write stories, fiction, and imaginary tales designed to spin a false narrative of our choosing. Christopher, don’t come back here. Live in self-affirming ignorance. And, for the record, Nedeljkovic was likely a goner, per Dubas’s own words, until Blomqvist failed his final exam.

Jarry, Graves and Rakell for Zegras, Gibson and a first-rounder. Gain nearly $3M in cap space. #Playoffs

The first rounder was a nice touch.

Wow, what motivation does Anaheim have to make that trade?
