Re: Pittsburgh Penguins

Cat, a player with a NTC does not have to be protected, but one with a NMC must be. Each team can only protect one G, and if one (like MAF) has a NMC then the decision is made. They must protect MAF and therefore leave Murray exposed.

It's not a matter of the Pens wanting to trade MAF. They have to (or get MAF to waive his NMC*) or they will lose Murray to LV.

(* MAF would have all the leverage here so getting him to do this would cost.)

Re: Pittsburgh Penguins

A team can also only protect so many forwards and so many defensemen. They have 2 ways to go about it. They can protect an extra forward and expose another defenseman or protect another defenseman and expose another forward. So it would depend on who the team wants to keep and not expose........I think a team can protect 3 defensemen unless they want to protect 4 and expose another forward. I think thats right. But it something like that......

Re: Pittsburgh Penguins

The options are 7 forwards, 3 defensemen, and a goalie or 8 skaters (forwards or defensemen) and a goalie.

Re: Pittsburgh Penguins

Lemieux should be honored. He's already in the HOF and one of the greatest players in history. And had a little more skill set than Gretzky. Just ask the guy that watched him and where's his number. Just as Penguins fans feel that saw Lemieux play every game...... :D
