The reborn Penguins

Pittsburgh GM Craig Patrick is apparently still unfinished with the radical revamping of his club, as today he signed UFA John Leclair, a former member of the state rival Philadelphia Flyers vaunted Legion of Doom line.

The last time the Penguins played hockey, 17 months ago in April of 2004, their forward lines looked like this (from April 1, courtesy of McKeen's Hockey):

LW


Kelly Buchberger
Ryan Malone
Jon Sim
Konstantin Koltsov




Rico Fata
Lasse Pirjeta
Milan Kraft
Mike Eastwood


Mario Lemieux

RW


Tom Kostopoulos
Matt Bradley
Aleksey Morozov
Ryan Vandenbussche





Now, as of the Leclair signing, I'm sure fans in Steeltown are salivating over the line-up their club has:

LW


Mario Lemieux
John Leclair
Ryan Malone
Konstantin Koltsov




Sidney Crosby
Lasse Pirjeta
Kris Beech
Rico Fata



RW


Mark Recchi
Zigmund Palffy
Tomas Surovy
Andre Roy


Ryan Vandenbussche

Let's just say Dick Tarnstrom won't lead the team in scoring again.
