LINK CITY: TK moved to second line, Shero makes some minor moves

Things you missed while at work during the day:

Bob Errey knows.

Looks like Project Tangradi has been abandoned. From the Pens Report:

As noted earlier, the Penguins shuffled their lines at practice today with Tyler Kennedy moving up from the third line to play with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal in the top six while Eric Tangradi moved down to the fourth line to join Joe Vitale and Craig Adams.
Malkin and Neal are both left-handed shots while Kennedy is a right-handed shot and normally plays right wing. In this situation, however, Kennedy will be on the left side as Neal likes to play on his off wing.
“’Nealer’ likes to play on the right side,” Kennedy said. “I’ll try the left side and see how it goes. I don’t think I’ve ever played on the left side. But if I go in focused it shouldn’t be too bad.”

Three reasons this is a terrible idea

1. TK is a solid NHL third line guy. We can't argue that. (Well, we could, but whatever), But he is out of his league on this line.

2. Kennedy will be playing a wing that he hasn't played. Newsflash: he isn't actually dominant on his own wing.

3. He said "Nealer."

All that said, it is the best option right now. So gotta live with it.

— Pens made some minor moves. Carl Sneep, a once decent prospect, was dealt to the Stars. And some other guy was brought in. The Sneep deal isn't surprising. We saw him in Wheeling late this year. He was terrible.

— Sabres fans bought everything from the team over the weekend. [ Puck Drunk Love ]

— Jamie Benn signed. [ Dallas Morning news ]

— The Flyers finally won. But Hartnell is out 4-8 weeks. [ BSH ] Oh, and, by the way, Mike Knuble is back with the Flyers.


This is funny…
