Hey pens fans,
The Pens have once again recalled Tyler Kennedy from the Baby Pens. He will be here for his third stint this season. He missed a few weeks with mono and then returned to the ice in the AHL last week. He has 2 goals in his last 3 games for the Baby Pens.
Count the Pens out, when it comes to Boyle. It is not likely and I don't think he would fit into the team in a way we need, right now.
Ladislav Nagy is a player that could "likely" be in Pittsburgh by the dealine. Can you imagine him on a line with Malkin or Crosby. That could be amazing. This makes sense. I am just concerned with what we have to give up to get him.
Many names are being tossed around in relation to the Pens, right now. Proabably because we have some cap space to play with. I do not think that most of these rumors have much substance, but Shero is likely listening to a lot of offers. Jokinen, Lang and McKee are a few names that I have heard, but I have no info as to if has been discussed or if Shero has any interest in them. I do not see Jokinen or Lang as a possibility. McKee is just slightly more realistic.
As for Mark Recchi, I repeat. He is not coming back to Pittsburgh. We let him go for nothing on waivers. He wasn't playing well for us. He is fitting in and playing well in Atlanta. I have gotten many messages asking about him. He will not return to the Pens at any point in the forseeable future. Atlanta is not going to give him up easily and, as much as I loved Recchi throughout the years, it makes no sense to bring him back, yet again.
