Dan: How far do the Pens get in the playoffs. I say they get knocked out in the first? Just feels like something is missing with the desire of this team. Then we have the great playoff goaltending. Dejan Kovacevic: Well, you sound ALL geeked up for playoffs, huh? It’s …

ORLANDO, Fla. — Hello, all, from this live — and outdoor — chat. Sitting outside Starbucks on South Orange Avenue, with no clouds in the sky, festive landscaping all around, a cool, wafting breeze to make all the more pleasant these 74 degrees and ... oh, I should shut up? …

BRADENTON, Fla. — They call this the Friendly City. Been the moniker for a long time now, and it’s richly deserved. There isn’t much here at all, at least not for those of us who aren’t into beaches, but the people are wonderful. The chat’s wide open today, though I …

Dejan Kovacevic: Dosvidanya ‘n at! Four more days of Games, including U.S.-Canada women right now, U.S.-Canada men tomorrow and a whole lot of Olli Maatta along the way. All Olympics again this week, please. You can’t imagine how far out of touch I am with anything in North America after …

Dejan Kovacevic: SOCHI, Russia — All this time I’ve been here, and I don’t know how to say hello in Russian. Ugly American. Anyway, Canada and Austria just dropped the puck, I spend the afternoon with Team USA, and I’m ready to talk all Olympics today, if you don’t mind. …

CommanderCool: Hi Dejan, hope everything is good in Sochi, any thoughts on how the Letang news might impact the Penguins trade deadline plans? Dejan Kovacevic: Had to pick my jaw up off the floor when I read that, and I’ll assume many of you did the same. It’s not just …

Dejan Kovacevic: Next time we chat, it will span a much, much greater distance. For now ... Dan: Over and under on how many people ask you about Pens trading Letang? My vote is 7. Dejan Kovacevic: You’re way low, considering the hundreds of submissions that come in general. Q: …

Dejan Kovacevic: Any topic at all, and off we go ... Pghgolfgirl: I have a real uneasy feeling going into the Olympics due to the security concerns. Given that you are headed there, how do you feel about the situation? Somehow Geno’s assurances that it will be safe is not …

Dejan Kovacevic: No need to delay. Just fire away ... Mike: If you were Shero and you saw no improvement in Letang’s D-zone play before deadline, and you could turn him into a winger like Wheeler or Kane, do YOU pull the trigger? Does Shero consider it? Dejan Kovacevic: If …

Dejan Kovacevic: What’s worse than a January night like last night, where no local sports team played and basically nothing was on TV? We’ll try to make up for that with a whole lot of sports talk right here. Any topic at all, starting right now ... Scott: Hey DK, …

Dejan Kovacevic: True story: Driving from Consol to Starbucks just now down Fifth Avenue. Construction worker stops me right by where the new PNC skyscraper is going up. Told me I needed to stay about 20 feet back from where I would have been, so a truck could pull out. …

Dejan Kovacevic: Welcome and happy Light Up Night to all. If you need a guide — and we all wait till the last minute on this stuff, I know — the Trib produced a good one the other day. Nick: Tomlin was seemingly dismissive of the impact of the no …
