FYI to my DET friends- I am with family in Pittsburgh and went in to see Pirates v Tigers yesterday. Pleaseantly surprised to see that Verlander was pitching. Great ballpark, bad result.
Pens will drive the price of Suter and/or Parise up another 10-15%, but long term probably can't pay Malkin, Crosby, Fleury and 1 more more superstar.
Got to give it to Crosby for NOT taking a max contract. Again.
A power play with Parise, Sid, and Malkin would be frightening.
I so what do you do in that family when Pittsburgh plays Philly, ie tonight? Is it like the Hatfield's & McCoy's?

and now my boys enter the ring: Philadelphia Flyers $200 Million Gamble for Parise and Suter is a Classic Bully Tactic: Fan's Analysis - Yahoo! Sports
... that's dirty pool, ... we'll see how much of the 'SloMo playoff mojo' gets sent Philly's way next season ... two can play at that game, ... I got a sinking feeling Parise is going to wind up in Pittsburgh ... Suter's still up for grabs though.
yeah, and long term it's stupid...owners will complain about salaries, and here's Holmgren driving up the price just to drive it up. And what the hell will Philly do with another forward? Hope to win every game 8-7 like the old Oiler/Fuhr days?
