There was a play the other day that I wish I could gif to show everybody.

 

He was penalty killing against the Jets, he had the puck behind the goal line with nobody on him.  First he hesitated with it not realizing he had the time he did, while he was hesitating it was like everybody else stopped for a second, it reminded me of pick-up puck at 12pm on Fridays when there is a less skilled player out there so you give him a few extra seconds to make a play before you try to check him.  He had the puck on his back hand about to circle behind the net, he could of cut out in front of the net and played it out on his forehand or he could of wheeled hard around the net and quickly pounded it out of the zone on his forehand but instead he hesitated like I said, and then proceeded to lug it behind the net on his backhand, head down still not realizing how much time he had and he literally tried to backhand the puck from behind his net, around the boards and out of the zone.. again, he tried to clear the puck with a backhand clear around the boards from behind his own net... It was picked off at the blueline

 

My explanation doesn't do it justice.  It was one of the worst "wtf" plays I have seen in awhile.  

 

Poor bastard. He is a beauty

Not a bad point.  Who would we rather have now McCann or Pearson?

I'm happy with Pearson.  We're set up the middle (Pete - Bo - Gaud/ Sutter) and Tanner's a great complement to Bo.

I'd rather have MCcan but it doesn't matter now. The 2nd rounder included in the original Gudbranson deal was the thing that killed us. Could've been Carter Hart, DeBrincat or Girard. Thankfully we redeemed the trade to some extent because Pearson is a vastly superior player to Gudbranson. More and more I think Guddy does not belong in the NHL, he just doesn't have the puck skills or agility. I was ecstatic when we got rid of his contract, not because I was that enthusiastic about Pearson but I knew losing Gudbranson and his contract would be addition by subtraction. He was awful. Pearson fitting in with Bo and playing well has been a bonus. As it stands, Pearson for MCcan and a 2nd rounder isn't a great trade but its not terrible. Pearson is definitely the type of player we've been missing and can play up and down the lineup.

I don't want McCann on our team. Sure everybody has the right to be immature, but the reported character issues with that young man is not something that just goes away completely with maturity IMO. I like the character and attitude of our young stars, and I'd rather have character guys like Pearson, LE, Beagle and Edler complementing them.

McCann is impressive every time I see him play for Pitt. He was on their 1PP when Crosby was out. 

 

As a fan I have no idea what or if his attitude problems might be. That is up to Benning and his scouts. I rest easy with their decision. 

 

Pearson has been a huge boost to the top 6. He is very solid both ways.

Pearson seems to be drive Bo a little more lately,  Pearson playing a more PF game and Bo following along

 

if we can call Pearson the “end result” of the Mcann trade.   It’s been damn good.

Guddy seems to have found a home in Anaheim. Good for him. Too bad he didn’t work out. My favourite trade in recent memory Pearson for Guddy. Don’t really care how it started. The fact that JB pulled off that trade to Pittsburgh was a thing of beauty. Plus McCann seems like a punk.

Way to go Benning.  Solid drafting.

 

Seems more of a loss for Florida than Vancouver though.  Vancouver traded him and Florida just let him go for effectively nothing.

Don't forget that Gaudz is the same age as McCann with slightly lower numbers but is a better fit on how this team is constructed. I don;'t think McCann is cut out to be a 3rd 4th line centreman, he doesn't have Gaudettes drive

Yeah he does. Fits in well there for their rebuild. Protect the younger guys and play reasonable minutes. Ducks have a bunch of guys who'll need time to improve. What they really need is to get a top 3 pick/elite player, they have a few good pieces like Zegras, Steel, Comtois but they're not the type of players to step in and make a huge impact, they'll need time.

 

Pearson's been nothing but great. Can't complain with how McCann ended up in Pittsburgh, Florida seems like the biggest loser.
