Nope, we’re not talking Tom Cruise here, just the fact that the opening week of the NHL free agent frenzy was about as good for the Pens as “Rock of Ages” was for our eyes…and ears. With Zach Parise letting Paul Martin’s recruitment call go to voicemail and opting for Miko Koivu over Sidney Crosby, Ray Shero is still looking for winger for Sid. Right now, the job is Tyler Kennedy’s to lose. Something must be done. The “trade for Bobby Ryan or Rick Nash” campaigns have quieted and it looks like the only shot Sid has at passing to someone who knows what to do with the puck once they get it is for Shero to go after what’s left on the free agent market…that’s not a lot.
Shane Doan would look damn good in Black & Gold but he’s still waiting around on the Coyotes to figure some things out. There are two guys the Jags are split on right now: Lazy Russian Alex Semin and Concussion Crazy Peter Mueller. Either one would be better than TK, right?
