Yep, good number. He has a history and toes the line an abnormal amount. 6 games isn't insane, but also isn't negligible and should send some sort of message.

The sum of all fears for Pens fans:

https://www.nhl.com/penguins/news/penguins-captain-crosby-diagnosed-with-concussion/c-282529802

The team is reporting he suffered the concussion in practice on Friday. Tons of Pittsburgh media who were at practice report seeing nothing in the way of contact or a hit to the head or anything... If it comes out (which it won't) that this is the effect of a hit he took from the WC, I and pretty much all Pens fans will be pissed beyond belief.

Here's hoping for a quick recovery. Through the playoff run last season, through the WC, Sid has been playing some of his best hockey, hopefully this doesn't slow him down for too long.

Yakupov to the Blues for a conditional pick and a player who doesn't look like he'll ever do anything. Even the Blues fans on reddit have no idea who Zach Pochiro is. I've never seen that happen before.

Color me F'n thrilled in this Trade :metal   

Given your distaste for players with no "heart" "grit" or "leadership" in the past, especially in the post season, I'm going to definitely remember this post after the playoffs when the under-performing player with no playoff experience is in your shit-house. :p

That said, for what they paid, if they have the cap space it's probably worth the gamble.

haha. He won't see a minute of ice time in the playoffs anyway. No way in hell will Hitch let him near the ice in a meaningful game. Blues fans need to  think of him like Terasenko, but without the offense. So basically just some guy who speaks russian.

The entire city of Pittsburgh noticeably cringed when this news broke.

That's the gist of it.....there really was nothing to lose and everything to gain. He could simply be a player that needs the change of scenery to jump start that 'promise' that he had which led him to be selected #1. All the pressure and what not for being that high pick is essentially gone now...he can take a breath and just try to regain some confidence and buy in to the team. If he doesn't...then so be it, see ya!

Yep, the Yakupov acquisition is high reward, low risk.

I can't believe the season is already here.

Take care of Condibear, Pens. :'(

And yeah, I think the Yakupov move is good for both teams. Oilers get rid of someone who wasn't working out and get an okay to decent draft pick in return, Blues take a gamble on someone who can potentially be a serviceable addition to their lineup in his new environment.

Seriously can't wait for this season to get underway though. Can't remember the last time I've been pumped for a season. :metal

Crosby concussed, Bergeron hurt, Eichel hurt (and after watching the video, it looks pretty severe), Anders Lee hurt, Carey Price sick... These leadup days have been cursed.

No kidding. I sure do hate Toronto, but Matthews is about as legit a talent as they come.  That 2nd goal was pretty spectacular.

I can't believe the season is already here.

Goal and an assist in his second game. He's looked good thus far but my understanding is the knock on him was he didn't give full effort all the time. I think Hitchcock can address that for him.

Two solid wins by the Blues to open the season.

First Devils game I've watched in a long time and I remember why I stopped watching. It's so fucking intense, especially in a close game. I think Schneider did extremely well, considering he gave up the goal in OT.

And there's what Subban can do when you have a halfway competent coach working the powerplay. Sigh. Muller made his return too late.

Yakupov goals are fine by me.  15+ and that conditional pick becomes a 2nd rounder.

McDavid is gonna pull a Crosby and get the Art Ross in his sophomore year. Calling it now. He may be 19 but he already looks like he's on a level above anyone he's on the ice with.

As overrated as Quick is, him being gone for the first few months is gonna hurt. We'll see how they persevere.

As an Oilers fan this pleases me greatly.  I need one of the 3 California teams to tank if there's going to be even a slim chance of the Oil making the playoffs this year.

Only problem is that, well, Crosby is playing out of his mind the last basically 8 months. If he can come back quick from this concussion and not be slowed by it, my money is on him for the Art Ross.

Hawks played a killer 1st period over the Preds tonight. Didn't see the second half of the game but was definitely satisfied with what I saw
