It ****ing drives me nuts.

We should be able to be a good puck possession team without solely relying on get-it-deep-and-cycle type game. That should be part of it, but currently it's all of it. I just think we have enough skill even without making a trade, that we should be better at controlling the puck / moving the puck in places other than 10 feet from the net.
I'm happy with the defense, but Crosby masked the problems upfront today. It's worrisome because he and Malkin may fool Shero into thinking the top six is just dandy.

The PP... Is Jesus still playing?

TK + 1st for Jesus?
