Is it pretty safe to say that Hagelin won't be back next Year? It's amazing to me that a guy can go from a huge offensive force in 1 year to a zero the next but that has been precisely what has happened. Also you think Kunitz comes back? Cullen?
Jason Mackey
2:34
They have to find someone to take a $4 million healthy scratch, at least at this point. That's going to be hard. I think he's back. Cullen yes, Kunitz no.

If Jake becomes the all-time rookie scorer in the playoffs, do you think he passes Malkin for Conn Smythe winner? That would be another 3 goals or more.
Jason Mackey
2:35
I would put Guentzel up there now, honestly. But, yeah, 15 goals ... I don't know how you don't.
Fish Monger

Nice favoritism Jason. I have asked 4 questions and not 1 has been posted but Dwayne has like 40 questions answered. Real fair.
Jason Mackey
2:35
I've answered every question that has been received.

Why can't the cheapo Pirates who had an owner that ruined a 98 win team be more like the Penguins?
Jason Mackey
2:35
Salary cap, one. We're comparing apples to oranges. In baseball, you have to spend. Nutting doesn't.
Dawid

Penguins will try to sign Daley ?
Jason Mackey
2:36
I don't think so. I like Daley, but there's injury stuff at play. And what another team might pay him versus what they have internally ... just not worth it.

Do you think the Capitals players are watching the finals? I bet they're sick to their stomachs too.
Jason Mackey
2:36
I'm sure they are. In both respects. At least they have some experience combating the illness.
Dawid
2:37
Do you expect Aston-Reese in the lineup in October?
Jason Mackey
2:37
No. In January, yes. I think he develops a bit more, then he gets his shot with injuries.

On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate my fan club?
Jason Mackey
2:37
About a 1-2 based on the number of questions you've asked today.

Guentzel shouldn't win the conn smythe because he was mia in Ottawa series. If any forward wins it, it really should be Malkin
Jason Mackey
2:37
That's a completely valid opinion. And you darn well may turn out to be right.
Bill

Not sure about Geuntzel for Conn Smythe just for the fact that he had no goals in the last series if goals is the reason he would be voted for.
Jason Mackey
2:38
I can see what you're saying. But what he did in the other three has been pretty ridiculous.

Ever have a Mario Bun Bar, It was good, but definitely you could get something better at a Dairy Queen.
Jason Mackey
2:39
I did. It was OK.

out of the players you suspect we lose the only one that i want to stay is bonino great 3rd liner and great on PK
Jason Mackey
2:40
I agree. My issue here is that I think another team will throw more $$$ at Bonino than the Penguins are comfortable spending.

Is Mineo's Pizza in your Top 5? Did you see they were ranked #1 in PA by Tasting Table?
Jason Mackey
2:40
I was underwhelmed when I went.
HB
2:40
Im afraid that in the expansion draft Vegas takes Cole should i be nervous about that?
Jason Mackey
2:40
If you have an Ian Cole jersey ... yeah, outside of Fleury, he would make a lot of sense for them. And he might be tough for the Penguins to protect.

Can we expect a tribute to mr. Dan Rooney (winning the cup, of course)?
Jason Mackey
2:42
I don't think.

I would love for Dwayne PghGuy to have a BLOG on the PG. Who do I contact to make this happen? Dude is hilarious and quite insightful.

When fla fans kept throwing rats on ice refs warned them one more time an penalty to fla how many catfish will it take game 3 for same outcome
Jason Mackey
2:42
None in Nashville. It's encouraged. Which is crazy.
Pope

If no Daley or Hainsey or streit next year and it looks like no future for Pouliot, then who are your starting 6 and does JR go shopping for one or two D?
Jason Mackey
2:43
I think he goes shopping for at least one. Optimistic here: Dumo, Letang, Cole, Schultz, Maatta and ... Prow? Bengsston? New guy? Maybe Pouliot. Gaunce?

Hi Jason, I am not worried about getting more shots or our power play, we have enough talent and experience in the room that it will work itself out. My biggest concern is staying out of the box. If Pens stay out of box we win 5th Cup in 5 games or less. Thoughts?
Jason Mackey
2:44
I think they do need to do more than just stay out of the box, but it sure doesn't hurt.

So far I have seen body shaming, bullying and sexism in this chat. I really think these chats should be shut down.
