At the very moment the Detroit Red Wings were holding their Stanley Cup parade Friday, the Pittsburgh Penguins were saying goodbye and heading off into a shorter-than-usal off-season.
The next time they meet, some won't be wearing Penguins uniforms, a certainty given the NHL salary cap that prevents good teams from staying together for a long time.
Full story: Penguins know roster will change before next season
Can the Penguins contend again next season?
Must be a lonely, lonely existence.

Actually that last comment by Wayne was mine, although Im not sure how that moron Wayne's name got on the bottom. Anyways, yes they are in the same talent pool, they're just a bit younger is all. You had me fooled Pete, I thought you actually knew a little about hockey. Silly me...

Cammalleri is indeed an upgrade over Tanguay, but his numbers are also better due to the fact that he played with a number of talented offensive players(Visnovsky, Brown, Kopitar etc.). Calgary doesn't have a talent pool anything like that, Iginla excluded, and he won't put up the same sort of numbers, particularily in a defensive grinding system like Calgary's.(ie: boring).
As for your odd and continuing hatred of the Oilers, well, you're wrong. Sorry, but they have an excellent young team, good talent developing in their farm system, and far from sucking for years to come, they will only get better. They have the young fast talent, the prospects, the draft picks, a billionaire owner who wants to win and even plenty of trade bait should it be necessary.
It's one thing to be ignorant about things, but it's quite another to demonstrate that ignorance for all to see. Regardless of your beef with Pete(who I'll admit can be annoying), don't badmouth the Oilers, who's future looks a lot brighter than almost every other Canadian teams.
