RRP's "Hey I'm Tanked, Where's Cole's +/-?"
 
Pens lost to the ******* Jets and I saw Lovejoy do a stupid split-thing on the 3rd goal. Tha ****?

Sideline 01-25-2013 11:12 PM

Fire Kunitz. Play some D, brah?

Trade Bylma. Preach some puck support, brah?

Bench Shero. Get some secondary scoring, brah?

Beauner 01-25-2013 11:14 PM

+Sid, Martin, Nisky, Vokoun

=Malkin. Meh.

-Turnovers. So many it was painful to watch. Especially in the offensive zone. Just handing the puck to the other team (or shooting into shinpads). Unacceptable really, you just can't turn it over that many times. This game wasn't on the system or the coach. Turnovers killed it for us.

-No puck support, no creativity. Pretty predictable in the offensive zone.

-Sutter. Just didn't play well

-Kunitz and Dupuis: Didn't do anything productive. Just bad.


This was just painful to watch.

Shero's already on the bench. Put himself there at the beginning of last season. Why do you think Sid found himself skating in the playoffs with Sullivan and Dupuis? :p:

Jacob 01-25-2013 11:16 PM

Letang was a big ol' turd today.

Sideline 01-25-2013 11:16 PM

Dupuis was actually pretty damn good today. He created several turnovers, hit people, and opened up lanes by attacking the Jets d with speed.

PensBandwagonerNo272 01-25-2013 11:17 PM

Me's "Oh sup I'm tanked too"

+ Crosby played ok for him

- Did we really just lose to the Leafs and the Jets? REALLY?

That's all that needs said.

also promote Crosby to Grand Chief Poobah of the Pens and CEO of his Back Bacon vendor in Nova Scotia.

And bring back the country club atmoshpere . . . strike that, already covered.

grover just said: but look how Bylsma coached last year (mening succesful) same guy who let his team fell apart at the end of the season, who didn't have any answers to New York friggin Islanders, not even getting to the Philly series

Bob Grove has a good pulse on what is prevalant feeling in Pens organization and that is that Bylsma is a great coach and they are always play or two away from greatness

KaylaJ 01-25-2013 11:22 PM

+ 1st period
+ Vokoun looked better except that one time he left the net and almost didn't get back

- Everything else after the 1st period.

vodeni 01-25-2013 11:23 PM

and our great hockey writes asking hard questions such as how the lack of training camp affects your game (as if other teams had the darn training camp)

Are you a veteran? Yes? **** ups don't matter. Just keep doing what you're doing. You'll get it eventually.

Darth Vitale 01-25-2013 11:23 PM

- Everyone but Vitale and Niskanen were ****, mostly on account of the endless giveaway parade. Nearly all of our forwards gave the puck away two or three times in the last 2 periods... maybe not Neal. Can't recall him doing it but he didn't get many good shots off either except that post at the end.

- Danny Disco (he got outcoached in a big way after the weekend, but especially tonight... Noel made him look stupid). I am starting to lose my belief in this guy's ability. He's still a young coach but at some point, learn from your damn mistakes dude.

Granted it's only 4 games in after a long lockout and guys are out of shape and not sharp but still, no excuse for that level of slop.

Lionel Hutz 01-25-2013 11:24 PM

Lot of turnovers.

Time for a shakeup

Hockeygod66 01-25-2013 11:26 PM

Cole lead us astray. He committed hara-kiri.

MrBurghundy 01-25-2013 11:26 PM

Next game:

Dupuis - Crosby - Kennedy
Kunitz - Malkin - Neal
Cooke - Sutter - Tangradi
Glass - Vitale - Adams (is too much to ask for to get Jeffrey in here for Adams though?)

Niskanen - Letang
Orpik - Martin
Despres - Bortuzzo

- Bylsma not acting like a ****tard.
- Forwards not leaving the zone too early, and no more trying to throw passes up the middle with nobody there for support.
- Defense stop turning the puck over with long stretch passes.
- Roll 4 lines consistently, and stop tinkering with **** that clearly won't work.

Warm Cookies 01-25-2013 11:27 PM

You're up 2-0 against the Jets, and you bugger it up. I'm still trying to wrap my head around that one.

The amount of fakes he had towards the end was driving me nuts, just put the puck on net. Which is a challenge for him..

Beauner 01-25-2013 11:29 PM

Also, this team needs new blood. Don't care if it's top 6, bottom 6, defenseman or a ****ing equipment manager, this team just seems stale. No heart or urgency at all save for a few guys.

I agree Bylsma had a horrendous late regular season and the early playoff exit but to be fair and what Grove may be talking about is that Bylsma did do some good things last year. Sidney Crosby missed 60 games, Jordan Staal missed 20 games, Kris Letang missed 31 games and the team still had 108 points. The year before Crosby and Malkin both missed about half the regular season and they had 106 points. That is impressive. That said, they say coaches all have an expiration date and Bylsma's may be rapidly approaching if the current struggles in the regular season continue or another early playoff exit happens.

Ugene Malkin 01-25-2013 11:30 PM

Hey, we could look at like he's trying to force Shero's hand and throw him a bone VIA trade.

Tender Rip 01-25-2013 11:32 PM

- Bylsma.
1. I think we have been among the worst passing teams in the league for a couple of seasons. Ought not be possible.
2. We have a defensive system that negates our strengths and inflates our weaknesses.
3. When things go south, we are incapable of adjustments and seemingly never get a hand from the bench.
4. I am completely baffled why Despres got scratched. The third pairing had largely been effective, and I thought Despres played a very decent game against Toronto. Suppose someone had to get punished and sure enough it will be the youngest player on the team. What we then got instead was the worst performance of any Pens pairing this short season so far with Lovejoy being clearly the worse of the two.

Anyway... I don't rate Bylsma and never have, so maybe I am being biased here. But I think we exhibit every indication that we are a poorly coached team.

There were numerous players deserving stick in this one, particularly Kunitz, Lovejoy, Cooke, Letang and Sutter. Tangradi also, being very unnoticeable when he didn't look obviously weak. Won't knock Geno's line as they were only ones creating offense, and it wasn't their mistakes causing chances against in general.

On the plus side.... Sid, Vokoun (Buff bomb and pretty WPG execution on both the other goals), King Vitale, Duper and Niskanen.
