#13|New Jersey Devils @ Pittsburgh Penguins|Fill-in for Lirit|7:30PM EST
 
Let's just start this as we have an MIA GDT maker.

ColePens 02-10-2013 02:50 PM

By the by.. I'll be at the game. Section 110 I believe. I'll be screaming gap control all night long and tweeting on our HFPenguins twitter.

Ogrezilla 02-10-2013 02:55 PM

how will we know if the 4th line is playing well?

ColePens 02-10-2013 02:56 PM

Trust me.. I'll jump on mobile if they are playing great. I won't let you guys down.

Cardboard Orpik 02-10-2013 02:58 PM

It's time to reclaim the East.

Zatch88 02-10-2013 03:15 PM

Hedberg is starting right? hopefully we can light him up.

eXile59 02-10-2013 03:17 PM

My brother & his GF are going as well.

I think the insane quality of the GDT's intimidates those who don't have those kind of photoshop skills.

Any word on who is playing with Geno and Neal on the second line? Hopefully Disco gives Jeffrey another shot. Please no more Chris Conner 2.0 / Chris Bourque 2.0

Fordy 02-10-2013 03:27 PM

If it's anyone other than Boychuk at this point he's a fool.

Fixed

Relax, I just would like to give Jeffrey one more shot.

When you claim a player off of waivers that you intend to give a look at in your top 6, you don't sit him after 5 games.

When we claimed Chris Bourque, we gave him 20 games to see what he could do. If Boychuk doesn't do anything in the next 15 games (after March 12 against the Bruins) then maybe you look at other options, or you roll with him until the trade deadline.

He's doing more than Chris Bourque did (by even being noticed) and he is younger and has higher upside than Chris Conner.

Give him a break, he's really playing hard.

He is... I'm all for abusing him but hoping they pull him after the second goal; I'm starting him on my fantasy squad. ;)

LGP!

Ironic.

I agree on easing up with the Boychuk criticism. I remember people losing it when Neal arrived and wasn't lighting the lamp daily. It will come. Patience.

He's only started 2 games this year, but he's 1-0-1 with a .980 SV% and a 0.48 GAA.

Don't former Pens players usually do well against us?

JTG 02-10-2013 03:54 PM

I want Geno to be on Sid's wing just so we can quit talking about his winger. Then just have 3 lines that get to the red line, dump it in, and then stand at our blue line.

The Boychuk is even less merited considering the fact that we didn't have to give up anything for him. No risk, potentially high reward investment.

You guys remember when GOligoski and LEtang were expiremented as wingers once upon a time? Ahhhhh, good old days...

the difference, of course, being Malkin and Neal on his line instead of Letestu and Kovalev. And a lot of the criticism isn't that he's a bad player, just that he's a bad fit for that line. I don't think its unreasonable to say he's not the kind of player we are looking for on that left wing despite the quality of said wing. I would rather switch Boychuk and Dupuis.

I still think our best possible line-up with the current roster has Cooke on Geno's LW.

Haven't we tried Jeffrey there already before?

I think the last option is the most interesting. No clue how effective it'd be.

For about 2 games and it was the best that line has looked at even-strength all season.

Darth Vitale 02-10-2013 04:04 PM

Anyone heard official lineups for tonight yet?
