Burke Snubs Pittsburgh – Settle for Thibault

  • Well after posting about Pittsburgh earlier this week, it seems the Penguins have continued their attempt at becoming a better team, I’m just not sure if they did the right thing.

    After being snubbed by Sean Burke, who took an offer from Tampa instead, The Penguins went after and got Jocelyn Thibault. A measly 4th round pick in exchange.

    Note to the Pens, don’t expect much from this guy. He is/was a mediocre goalie at best, and now coming off surgery don’t expect any miracles. Coming in to replace Patrick Roy in Montreal destroyed this guy and he has never recovered.

    Watch for him to start the season and then promptly get replaced by Fleury before Christmas.

  1. I told ya so. Nov 30th bye bye Thibault!
