Carter isn’t elite obviously, but he was a great trade deadline add for the price. Pens probably have the 4 best centre punch in the NHL this year. This team can absolutely make a run. Any team in the east can.

Remember all those Jeff Carter trades in the off-season which a lot of people pooh-poohed claiming that "Carter has said that if he is traded, he'll just retire"?

I’m so glad hextall made a move for him. Especially at that price. He absolutely has gas left in the tank. He’s not a 30+ goal scorer anymore but he looks like a great 3C

I'm so torn that you can actually call a team where Matheson is slotted in the first pair elite. And Ceci in the second.

Gotta say these guys have been impressive, considering the expectations.

*tips hat*

Well he just didn’t fix the lineup. It’s based on the highest contracts. I mean Gaudreau is in for Sceviour. That McCann-Carter-Gaudreau line has been absolute 🔥.

No way pens change there lines now. Last night was an amazing game for that 3rd line and I hope that line stays for the playoffs. Here are my lines for playoffs.

Guentzel-Crosby-Rust
Zucker-Malkin-Kapanen
McCann-Carter-Gaudreau
ZAR-Blueger-Tanev

Dumo-Letang
Matheson-Ceci
Pettersson-Marino

Jarry
Desmith (if healthy)

These lines are scary, and I doubt that Sully changes those lines after last game. He already said that Gaudreau earned a spot on the roster. Hes been playing good as a RW on that line and he should stay there with Carter and McCann.

Matheson/Ceci are actually bottom pair. The lines aren’t set. And they’ve been very solid this year for us
