Conklin demoted

The Pittsburgh Penguins have cut their training camp roster to 30 players, it was announced Saturday by Executive Vice President/General Manager Ray Shero.

Nine players have been assigned to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, the American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The nine players assigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton include; forwards Connor James, Tyler Kennedy, Chris Minard, Jeff Taffe, and Tim Wallace; defensemen Alex Goligoski, Ryan Lannon, and Ben Lovejoy; goaltender Ty Conklin.
Dany Sabourin has won the battle of the backups and will open the bench door for Marc-Andre Fleury for most of this season.

Conklin had a familiar response to the news:

The real story here is this: Penguins have back-up and third stringer as their goalies which is a shame.

Gretzky started with Moog and Fuhr, Crosby get these jokers. Nice.

Calling Fleury a "joker" is a little strong. He's a good goalie.

Gretzky started with Low, Favell and LoPresti.

Andy Moog started 1980 and Fuhr 1981 so it's quite early in Gretzky's NHL career.

Cruel... but funny.

There was a website but it seems to have disappeared ??? It had a few that weren't on YouTube including some for the 06-07 playoffs that were pretty funny, too.

The vids used to be on, although now it's hosted on The 06-07 set was good, but I liked the originals better.
