What a game from Geno, Sid and Neal. That was awesome. No doubt about it Geno is taking the Art Ross home. Hopefully there will be something even more important come June!

Thanks for posting that. That is really impressive.

Those "on pace" stats are usually a little inflated after big games, but in any event, they'll have to pick up the pace a little. Gonna be tough with our relatively tough schedule down the stretch.

Malkin on pace for 107.308 pts, fwiw. Giroux for 94.957, Stamkos for 95.667 (56.944 goals).
How do you tally .308 points in a game?

Funny, before last nights game I didn't think Malkin was going to reach 100 points. Now he has to be really bad not to get 7 points in 10 games.

1 ass = 1/3 goal?

That makes sense. The main board always talks about "secondary Sid," not "secondary Evgeni". Although "secondary Evgeni" is fun to say. Try it.

(Seriously, that's really cool, and more evidence that Malkin deserves the Hart)

I believe Rocket Richard was the last guy to do it. Or maybe it was Eddie Shore. If anyone today could do it, it would be Geno.

Maybe Stamkos invites Malkins parents to his next game? I heard his mom ist taking Russian classes.

Let's put it into perspective - in the entire NHL, there are only 2 guys within 17 points of Geno's 93 points. That's pretty impressive.

Amazing stats aside, what often goes overlooked about Geno, and still bugs the hell out of me till this day, is that his work ethic is still often overlooked. A lot of ignorant people still get caught up in the whole "Russians are lazy and arrogant" stigma, and I have no doubt that there are alot of people that place the same ridiculous stereotype on Geno. Needless to say though the man is an absolute workhorse on the ice every single shift, at BOTH ends! We often applaud Sid for his work ethic, but if you ask me I don't think Geno is far behind either, as he plays with just as much intensity and fire in his eyes as any other guy on this team.

Impressive is an understatement. He's been flat out DOMINANT.

He's guilty of doing fly-bys on the defensive side of things, even now. But his ability to read the play allows him to get away with that more often than not.

My hope is that he finds the proper balance between the high risk/high reward play and when to make the simple chip out of the zone or dump in at the end of a long shift.

I've been tracing how Neal got on this team because I have no job. It starts when Pens sign Jeff Norton as a UFA in 2000 when James Neal is 12 years old. The Pens then traded Norton for Johan Hedberg in 2001. In 2003 the Pens traded Hedberg to the Vancouver Canucks for a 2nd round pick. With that 2nd round pick in the 2004 NHL entry draft the Penguins selected Alex Goligoski. In 2011 the Pens traded Goligoski for James Neal & Matt Niskanen.

I'm really bored today so I've been tracing how Sidney Crosby got on this team.

It's starts with the lockout and then ends with Gary Bettman conspiring to get the Pens the #1 draft pick in 2005. Other details are unknown and hidden behind sealed lips.

Edmonton won the cup in 1987. Crosby was born in 1987. Edmonton traded Coffey soon after to the Pens, obviously at the behest of the NHL, along with lopsided trades for players like Tom Barrasso and Ron Francis. The birth of Crosby, the NHL conspiring to bring the Pens their first two cups in the early 90's, obviously the NHL has a long twisted plan to make the Pens dominate and to screw over other teams, particularly from NY and Philly. Starting with lopsided trades and planting a genetically enhanced cyber super baby into Mrs. Crosby.

How am I doing?

I firmly believe it's part of the mentality here mostly with Sid showing the way. Sid's work ethic has rubbed off on everyone here. Geno said as much in an interview after the Ranger game last week. That they see how much Sid works off ice, during practices etc. Plug in a guy like Mike Kadar and it's really become part of being a Penguin. Theres a reason Lovejoy can just get plugged in and doesn't look too out of place. Kadar and the staff really do a great job.

To think if we never signed Jeff Norton there would be no James Neal on the Pens.

I always thought the Norton signing would be great for the Pens. But doesn't this really start with Chris Joseph not working out?


Note: seriously cool research on your part eXile59

I did some research to figure out what the hell you were talking about... it's very interesting how forgettable transactions can blossom into the perfect long term solution at wing.

Yeah 9 times out of 10 they are forgettable but ever once & a while something like a 2nd round pick for a goalie gets you set for the future. Most the time you get a CPZ though.

I was looking into another one & Bortuzzo was the pick we got for Thorburn, which was originally the pick the Rangers sent with Dupuis to Atlanta.

So what you're saying is, technically, we got James Neal and Matt Niskanen for free. Nice.
