It really only lasted 24 hours. We got a 24 hour reprieve after game 7 before people started the “Trade Malkin” talk. As if having to watch game 7 wasn’t crappy enough.
Pure idiocy. I would love to be in the room when Ray Shero reads these BS articles where sportswriters say the GM will “seriously consider all options” in regards to Malkin. If the LA Kings were to offer Kopitar, Frolov, Jack Johnson, Drew Doughty and an In-N-Out location in Pittsburgh, Shero may consider it. Otherwise, Shero is just flipping them off. Plus, if we were to get rid of Malkin, we would have to get rid of his girlfriend.
A huge loss for males in Pittsburgh.
Everyone loves to say “Well, Sid needs wingers, trade Geno and move Staalsy to 2nd line center.” If you’ve ever said this, do not continue to read this blog. Sid will ALWAYS need better wingers, until Ilya Kovalchuk and Marian Gaborik decide to play for the Pens for $1 mil a season. Till that day, Sid could always use “better wingers”, bite me.
Oh yeah, here’s another reason Malkin should remain a Penguin.
The Pirates go for the series sweep in Chicago today, continuing their extraordinarily (even by Bucco standards) enigmatic season. Most Pirate fans are now beginning to brace themselves for the July trade deadline to see what potentially great players the Pirates can get rid of this year. I’ve been a Pirate fan my whole life, and even I’m starting to lose hope.
That being said, this could be a fun end of the season once Pedro Alvarez and Jose Tabata make it up to the big squad.
Things remain quiet on the Steelers front, which is a very welcome sight after this hellish offseason. One of the big stories of this summer will be the Steelers draft class. Aside from Pouncey, who will start at guard and eventually become the every day center, there are a lot of question marks. Jonathan Dwyer could be a late-round steal, and there has been a lot said about the Steelers two receiver picks, Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown. Hopefully there will be some positive news out of Steelers camp, news outside of Ben Roethlisberger.
Pirates play in 30 minutes.
Let’s go Pittsburgh
