Thread: 2018-19 Penguins and NHL Offseason

  1. #1

    2018-19 Penguins and NHL Offseason

    Figured it was time to start a new thread for offseason trades and free agency. Pens freed up some cap space today with two guys I think just about everyone wanted them to move.

    PIT gets a 2019 fourth-round pick that could become a third-round pick. No salary retained in the deal.

    .@MarkMaddenX first reported that the Penguins intend to sign defenseman Jack Johnson Sunday to a five-year deal. Confirming that. Source says it will be in the $16 million range total (between $3-$3.5 million AAV).

    The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-signed forward Riley Sheahan to a one-year contract. The deal carries an average annual value of $2.1 million.

    If you hear a loud scream on Sunday. Think nothing of it. It will be me just before I jump off a bridge. Signing Jack Johnson with the Hunwick/Sheary cap space seems like a foolish move. We all complain that Letang makes mental errors. Just wait until Johnson takes the ice. Hopefully reports of this signing are wrong but there are so many out there I'm figuring it's only a signature away.

    I guess he will be taking Fleury's seat next to Sid on the plane.

    Yeah, I slept on the whole Jack Johnson thing, and when I woke up I still didn't like it. Might as well have kept Hunwick. Would have been cheaper, anyway. I am beginning to think GMJR got lucky in 16 and 17, because his last few moves have sucked ass, and that is being nice.

    We can hope that Johnson's career is reborn like Shultz, Oleksiak, Daley, Sheahan and others that have come in with a new start and turned their struggling careers around. JJ was a top 3 pick. There has to be something there still.

    Here's an article from NBC Sports on the Jack Johnson rumors.

    That article breaks it down as good as it can get. If Johnson was signing a one-year prove it deal, it wouldn't be so bad. I just don't get why you sign this type of player to a long-term deal.

    Good point on Rutherford, Sarge. There is a large segment who thinks he's infallible yet every move he made last offseason was terrible. I still think the main reason the Pens lost their chance at a third Cup in a row last because of last year's offseason.

    I thought it came down to the Brassard trade. The Pens were humming along, good chemistry, everyone knew their role and they were performing well in those roles. Everything was building toward a lengthy Cup run. He made that trade and the team never looked in synch and viable again the rest of the season. He shouldn't have made any moves. Sometimes you don't fuck with what is working.

    GMJR is not perfect. He wasn't exactly lighting it up in CAR when he left. We'll see what comes out of the latest moves. He did mess with the team when he didn't have to this past season. He's not untouchable.

    Just saw on the LGP board that the deal is 6 years, $14.5 million for Johnson, according to Dejan Kovacevic. If true, $2.41 million is better, but that term though........

    Let's make Jack Johnson Great Again.............. or realistically Let's make Sid happy again.

    On a positive. If Seattle enters the league next year. We could leave him unprotected and bribe them to take him.

    6 years? I hope that's not really true, but then again, a lower salary is good. Geez, I hope it works out.

    The $$$ are easier to stomach but the term ? hell no. Going to be fun to see which media guy the whole thing right.

    I hope none of them are right and Jack Johnson goes somewhere else.

    Here's an article with more info from Darrin Dreger. Says there is no deal in place for Jack Johnson, although he believe JJ is the Pens primary target. Also believes Rutherford may be shopping Tristan Jarry as several teams are panicking over the lack of goaltending in the NHL. Purely speculation it seems, but interesting nonetheless.
