Yeah, because you can draw better conclusions from a bad week and a half and four bad games than from the rest of the year where most were ready to gve the Pens' the cup and they only lost something like three games out of thirty towards the end of the year.

As for the defensive riches, combined the defensemen on the Pens, and what they have in the minors, means that fairly soon players who could play in the NHL will be forced to remain in the minors. Despres, Harrington, Morrow, and several others. On the Pens, the core is only a year removed from being a top five defense in the NHL, and only fell to the middle of the pack.

So yeah, I stand by what I said, and why Martin MIGHT be shopped.
