I really like this AGM conceptually but would suggest Zucker at 2LW and [notices ZAR LTIR] well I guess just Lucic at 3RW but maybe burying him would be ideal?

IMO Lucic would play well on Geno’s line. He’s that type of player. Fast players usually don’t play well on Geno’s line. See Kessell and Zucker last year. Zucker had 12 points in 15 games with the Pens last year. All 12 came when he was on Sid’s line cause Gentzel was injured. He struggled on Geno’s line.

I would love to see Lucic/Malkin/Rust line. And Zucker has played RW. He is comfortable playing his offside/ weak side(as a left-handed shot).

After Zucker can be “plan B” if Kappy doesn’t work out on Sid/Guentzel line.

ZAR had off season shoulder surgery and out till mid February. Yes, he’s starting the season on LTIR.

Lol. I love Tanev!! Great 4th line wing. Great two-way energy guy and chips in scoring some. He had Selke votes the past two-seasons!! That proves right their he is one of the best defensive forwards in the NHL. I’m a fan!!

I just think Lucic fits in with the Pens timeline(really Sid and Geno’s timeline) and would love to see a Lucic/Geno/Rust line for the next 3 years.

Lucic is a fine player with a horrible salary lol, I’d be fine with him but keep tanev. Pens get pushed around a bit in a playoffs.

Not only would the Canes not trade Staal at this point, they sure are not retaining on any deal. Staal is too valuable without a bonafide 2C for the Canes to move.

Ya, him being your 2C isn’t great. Aho is a great 1C. I thought Trochek would be there 2C. Hopefully the last couple years were a fluke with him and he starts producing like he did in those 50-60 point seasons

Staal inst a good enough scorer or play-maker for a 2C. Great 3C though. Although 6M per is a lot for a 3C.

Staal isn’t our 2C but we don’t have an established 2C to take the risk of trading Staal.
