    Rutuu, I agree with not going back to the future. I also agree with Regdunlop…Avery, I don’t know why anyone would consider him and I would probably fall over if I heard that he was a Penguin. I hope Guerin isn’t a Penguin either… he’s really been about a zero for a few years. All the talk about St-Louis and Lecavalier I believe has always been that, just talk. They both like it in Tampa Bay. As for Ron Malore, I think the only move St. Louis will make is to get Chris Pronger back.

    As to Spector – he’s gay.

    There is no way the Pens would pick up Avery. With how important team chemistry was for the Pens last season, and how it was not there as much this season, he would be the last guy they would want to bring in to the mix.
    I read that St louis has already rejected the notion of waiving his no-trade clause to come to Pittsburgh.
    I don’t see the Pens taking the cap hit for Guerin, nor do I see them trading much for him. With that said, Spector has the possible teams that Guerin could go to narrowed down to 3. One of which he feels is the Pens.

    The only thing I find rather strange (waiving Thomas) is that we were already 1 under the player roster limit. Which means mostly two things – the first being that the team has zero interest in Thomas which isn’t a big surprise but also that there will be 2 roster spots open.

    Some are speculating we are trying to get Rutuu back. I personally would rather see Vermette or Niel as apposed to Rutuu. Some other say Guerin is coming here. I hope not. Still other are saying something is brewing with St. Louis. My opinion (St. Louis): If it isn’t for Boyes 4getaboutit.
