to sum this up the best

Penguins finally we dont got to watch JJ and Shultz anymore

GMJR whats that you want another bad line Introducing the Matheson-Ceci line

Fans...AH **** HERE WE GO AGAIN

Everyone else





Literally Andy Greene, Jan Rutta, heck trading for someone would have been better.

Ceci on a cheap 1 year deal is fine.

We'll trade you Johnson for a 7th so you can pair Ceci and Johnson together and fulfill the prophecy

Add Ceci's name to the long list of Leaf rejected players to go on to win the Cup.

Relax with all the hate. He's a fine NHL defenseman. His issue in Toronto was they tried to play him as a top pairing dman. Fairly paid on the third pair with 2nd duty pk time he'll be totally average for a 1.25 million dollar defenseman.

Honestly seems like a smart move to me.

Both. But he isn't worse than Johnson and it's when he has the puck that's it's a disaster.

This signing isn't that bad on it's own, I mean Ceci is a bottom pairing caliber D signed for bottom pairing money so it's not awful. He is viewed as awful because he is a bottom pair talent who can kill some penalties who has played, and been paid like, a top 4 option.

That being said, the fact that this move is probably the best move GMJR made all summer is pretty disheartening.

Pittsburgh spent a lot of longer term assets and didn't get any better. Kapanen is younger than Hornqvist, but he hasn't been as effective. Matheson is a worse contract than Johnson, maybe he's an improvement, but it doesn't move the needle considering how much term and dollars they took on. Ceci is a bottom pair D, but he again, does not move the needle.

So all in all, their cap situation got worse long term (Matheson plus Johnson's buyout will commit roughly $6M annually, and for that money they basically have a bottom pair D), they traded a 1st and decent prospect, so their prospect cupboard is basically empty, and they really aren't any better.

They literally could have done nothing else, and signed Craig Smith, and a depth D, and they would have improved more without complicating their future cap or giving up assets for the long term.

That's an ugly offseason.

All I can say is have fun trying to defend the pucks that he gives up in the D zone

He's bad, we traded Zaitzev for him and I think that is regrettable
