    Brandon Pirri: Turk would give it to Jagr. That's awesome! Jagr's untouchable. And he would give it to Jagr.

      That was a complete surprise to me. This isn't the first time that we had the last pick.

          John Haley back in 1985. Senez and Jensen perhaps also. I will have to check.


          Edit: I was wrong, none were the last although 2 were next to last.

            Reilly must be in shock too. He hasn't tweeted although he earlier retweeted about another player who must have been a former teammate.

            Edit: the retweet was for Jacob Golden who also played for Upper Canada College, but they did not play there at the same time.

I'm sorry you had to experience someone that wants to just sit on her throne in the Troy building (because we know she doesn't use her throne at HFH), take all the credit for good, but pass the blame for bad; it's yet another reason why I don't want to donate to the 'tute until she's gone. Hopefully things go well for you this summer, too.
                          Thanks for the kind words. My best to you and Mrs. Dudette

                            two interesting articles from Sam Blum. Sam's clearly not on the fast track to replace Dave Anderson, but interesting nonetheless.

                              I'm not sure what to make of Reilly's comment that he can't wait to get started.

                              I'd like to think it means he can't wait to get started on his second season at RPI, so that over the next three years he can continue his development into the sort of player that could be useful to the Penguins.

                              I have a sinking feeling, though, that it means he's going to sign the first piece of paper the Penguins organization puts in front of him, even if it promises nothing better than a shot at being a frequent healthy scratch for the Wheeling Nailers.

                                I strongly doubt that the Penguins are going to go out of their way to sign the 217th overall pick immediately. Why spend the money on developing him if they can let RPI handle it. I suppose it's possible that he could be sent to whatever CHL team has his rights but it seems unlikely.
