Pick your preseason lineup
 
Just to change gears around here a bit, what would you folks like to be your preseason line ups? Id say give 2-3 lineups, two spread out, and one partially consolidated. The predictions should be interesting.

Post em' up...

I don't know.. there was so many that it didn't go by your "rules". :laugh: But there's few that could work or not.

I just threw up in my mouth, that is an awful lineup. Seriously, this lineup is far worse than last years squad. Overrated shero better have some tricks up his sleeves because right now we would be fortunate to even get knocked out of the first round of the playoffs.

wouldn't mind those for preseason

Coach John McGuirk 07-09-2012 08:53 AM

For pre-season? Time to experiment!

As it stands now:

Kunitz - Crosby - Bennett
Tangradi - Malkin - Neal
Jeffrey - Sutter - Dupuis
Cooke - Vitale - Kennedy


Letang - Despres
Orpik - Morrow
Niskanen - Harrington
Martin - Maatta
Engelland - Pouliot

if the Pens sign Semin (long shot but still):

Bennett - Malkin - Neal
Kunitz - Crosby - Semin
Cooke - Sutter - Pa Dupuis
Kennedy - Vitale - Jeffrey/Ph Dupuis/Adams
Ph Dupuis/Adams/Jeffrey

Letang - Morrow
Despres - Orpik
Niskanen - Martin
Harrington - Maatta/Pouliot

MrBurgundy* 07-09-2012 09:35 AM

Just to make things easier, I'm going to assume that we aren't going to bring in anybody else through FA or trade. If that happens, then that obviously changes my lineups.

Lineup #1: This is what I think the lineup will be on opening night after preseason is done.

Kunitz - Crosby - Dupuis
Tangradi - Malkin - Neal
Cooke - Sutter - Kennedy
Glass - Jeffrey - Vitale
Adams

Martin - Letang
Orpik - Niskanen
Strait - Bortuzzo
Engelland (I think it's more of a platoon situation with him also. He'll get more than enough time in the lineup during the season.)

Lineup #2: Something that I think we'll see at some point during the preseason as Bylsma is tinkering with things.

Kunitz - Crosby - Tangradi
Bennett - Malkin - Neal
Cooke - Sutter - Dupuis
Glass - Jeffrey - Vitale

Despres - Letang
Martin - Niskanen
Morrow - Orpik

Lineup #3: This lineup is the one that will get the most people up in arms :laugh:

Kunitz - Crosby - Neal
Tangradi - Malkin - Kennedy
Cooke - Sutter - Dupuis
Glass - Vitale - Adams

Orpik - Letang
Martin - Niskanen
Despres - Bortuzzo

Muscles4Malkin 07-09-2012 10:06 AM

------
SALARY CAP: $70,200,000; CAP PAYROLL: $61,193,500; BONUSES: $0

Aww c'mon guys, there's still time to trade for Parise before camp! Where's the faith?!?!

Tasty Biscuits 07-09-2012 11:29 AM

Whenever Tangradi gets his pre-season Top 6 shots, I hope it's with Crosby and not Malkin, since his game meshes much better with Sid's (scoring off the cycle) than it does Geno's (scoring off the rush), since that's the strength of his game.

steelcityassault 07-09-2012 12:05 PM

You guys should realize that some lesser known guys will get a game or two, as well. Geoff Walker and Bryan Lerg did last year on AHL contracts

You should see Zach Sill, Keven Veilleux, Trevor Smith, Warren Peters, Riley Holzapfel, Philippe Dupuis, Dylan Reese and prospects like Tom Kuhnhackl, Matia Marcantuoni, Dominik Uher as well

ya totally agreed, we usually have two totally different lineups for games 1 and 2, so im sure all of those guys will get atleast 1 game

just threw these together, i know i have guys missing and not 100% sure what position some of the new guys play

Darth Vitale 07-09-2012 01:40 PM

All I know is Despres, Morrow and Dumoulin will all get significant ice time in pre-season if I had to guess.

Tasty Biscuits 07-09-2012 01:46 PM

Does anyone think they give Morrow the Despres-treatment in that they know they won't be starting him in the NHL so they send him down earlier to get acclimated and to give everyone else vying for a spot more playing time? I wouldn't be too surprised.

ya i can see that happening, we have so many defensemen no way he makes the team right out of camp

Darth Vitale 07-09-2012 03:38 PM

I don't think Morrow and Dumoulin have any shot at making the team, short of an incredible camp and pre-season where they are dominant, only that the team will give them a taste of NHL games to whet their appetite. They're playing in WBS all year, barring a bunch of simultaneous D injuries.

Long term, I agree. Short term, Kunitz is the better player and Sid needs him. He'd have a smaller, more specific role as the third wheel on Geno and Neal's line. Dupuis can't be the better of Sid's wingers. Only way Tangradi is on Sid's line barring more signings is if he is head and shoulders better at camp than we've ever seen him.

Do you think if we gave Minnesota a Lifetime Pizza Hut voucher and 15% off all purchases from the Penguins On-Line Shop that they would give us Parise? Worth a shot. Throw in a second hand Kawasaki Ninja and they might go for it.

Make it Mineo's Pizza and he's ours! :handclap:

But do we have to pronounce his name Paris-E rather than Paris-A like he asked at the conference in Minnesota yesterday? :sarcasm:
