Before you even finished your first hot dog yesterday (unless your name is Joey Chestnut), the Penguins lost out on their two best options for Sidney Crosby’s left wing. Steve Sullivan got tired of waiting so he signed with Phoenix for a nice raise. Then Zach Parise and Ryan Suter LeBroned and D-Waded it and signed in Minnesota for the next 13 years for the exact same price – Suter owes Parise big time for that.
The Pens can do without Suter, but you’re kidding yourself if you don’t think Parise is a huge miss that would’ve been a huge upgrade on Sid’s wing that could have given the Pens four legit 40 goal scorers. But they didn’t lose anything by missing on Parise, they did however lose Sully as their Plan B, who accounted for 48 (17 G, 31 A) of the Pens’ league-leading 273 goals. It’s still odd that in less than two days, the Pens went from:

Lou Lamoriello did not speak with anger in his voice. He was not short with his answers. And he even declined an offer to wrap up the interview after 20 minutes, fearing that the media may have some more questions for him.
