Team Explanation
__________________________________________

*********~~~~~~~ The Pens Off-Season Goals - Should have been ~~~~~~~*********

1} - After the (Brain Fart) of Expansion Draft :
- Replace Tanev ======================== McGinn - Solid signing, a bit much but love the player alot.
- Replace McCann ======================= Dvorak - I have been trading for him for like 4 yrs now, would love him to replace McCann

2} - Get a more physical #2 LHD-man ============== Ekholm - Always loved Ekholm & is a pain in the arss to play against.
** Plus moved Zucker **

3} - Trade for a RH Winger that needs a change but still has some good hockey left or 'could' be that 3rd star Forward ========= Ricky Rakell - Yes, I have the record on here for times traded for Rakell, LOL.

4} - Move Rust for a Big package ~~ Rusty's value will never be higher than after the last 2 seasons ---- + Not a great idea to extend Rust w/ all the older players on Pens {need a better mix of age on Pens}
**** Plus got that 1B type Goalie to push Jarry & have a better option for Playoffs if he has a "Hextall" again. (a Hextall = a Dumb Decision) ****

    Polie just laughed in your face at that trade


    He did sign Johanson & Duchene at $8m for like 10yrs then traded Fiala, so wouldn't put anything past him
