Bennett > Yakupov (or should that be ? )

I noticed the same thing someone else did, that even without the puck he knows where to be. Isn't just looking for open space and a pass all the time but instead going where he needs to be to help the team maintain posession in the zone, etc.

I noticed that too during the game. TB has some decent pesonnel on D so hopefully a little credit is due there.

*raises hand*

He sucks right now; the Costco-sized bottle of Tums I bought last month is already half empty. Has one year left on his deal, going on 33... clearly slowing down some. If Shero could find an experienced replacement, Orpik might provide a pretty good return on the trade market.

I think the consensus is he's not a replacement in the sense that he'll be hammering people all the time like Orpik used to do, but in terms of size and skill I'd say the possibility exists. Every shut-down guy doesn't have to be a bruiser.

Not sure I'd attribute that to Neal. Sid has looked pretty dominant at times the last several games. But I have little doubt once Crosby starts learning Neal's habits (in terms of where he goes without the puck), the goals will flow and Neal will not leave that line again. Turns out Sid's Neal is... Neal. The injury Gods have spoken.
