Barrasso would have to do a complete 180 in his personality. I can't see him changing that much. I beleive this might be a bit sobering for him now. May benefit with a new address and a new life that has changed since his dad left.
I think Lugnutt will be fine in Pitt. He is used to sharing the netminding responsibilty with Rhodes in the past. So I think they might rotate them. Your only as good as your last game. That can make them competitive. Then what do I know? Maybe he will be #2. I think he will see more shots there though. Lotta time the extra action improves goalies too. We had Lugger here in Edmonton. He was young and undeveloped then and was trying to fill the shoes of guys like Fuhr/Moog who had just left in their prime.
Pitt needs to build the rest of the team a bit more. They are too ineffective without the dominant Jammie. Yeah I know.....the purse strings are tight in Pitt. Gotta closet full of those t-shirts. Thats what makes it easier to cheer for them though. Alot easier now that Barrasso is gone too. I like Mario.
