16 teams and nobody looking as bad as the Penguins. With the talent they have this is an abortion of coaching.

Bylsma should be coaching in the KHL next year. Or AHL.
Weird situation in Pittsburgh. This was a very responsible defensive team that didn't take any shortcuts out there up until Crosby returned. Since he's been back it's been river hockey. Did Bylsma actually change up his approach, or have his players just gotten lazy assuming that Crosby will now carry the load for them?

According to most people on this board, Briere shouldn't be as successful as he is during the playoffs. He isn't 6'4 200+ pounds.

IMO, if he had to play centre and was surrounded with players his size, he would struggle, especially in the playoffs.

Calling it now, Penguins win the next 3 to take it to game 7.

After doing nothing to Weber, can't see him getting anything.

Holy crap Crosby is way too into the chippy stuff. He's gonna make himself a target to get concussed if he continues.

Pittsburgh has thoroughly embarrassed themselves this series. Didn't think that was possible. Philly showing true grit, skill, heart, determination. Playing the game pretty honest and hard. Very difficult to be in the Pens corner on this.

Wow things have gotten completely out of hand.

This is what the playoffs are about. We've really been missing a series like this. Islanders-Leafs in 2002 was the last great bloodbath until now.

I thought he left his feet and a shoulder to the face. That is something that the league will have to look at. No need for that.

Your right though, the Weber fine sets a bad precedent.

Oh and I love the Flyers team make up. Simmonds and Hartnell sticking up for their players. Love it.

Hmm, after running at Giroux too he might get a fine.

The fact Couturier is fine though probably takes away any suspension if there was going to be one in the first place.

I'm a big fan of this series, but if we played either we might lose 10-1.

I sure hope so because this series has been by far the best in the playoffs.

We'll see, Shanny strikes me as a guy who succumbs to public pressure. I don't think anyone liked the Weber WWE move, so maybe he amps up the violation and suspends someone.

Agreed, if the Oilers played, half our team would be injured and we'd get blown the hell out. 10-1 seems right.

I think you mean most hilarious series. I hope it goes to 7 games as well, haha. There's like no one left on the bench.

They are so close to each other lol. Ferraro seems like the type of guy who would hate McGuire.

Just wow

Would have thought Pittsburg could have been awarded the Cup before the playoffs started the way people were gushing over them, they are getting laughed right out of the playoffs.

How bad has Fleury been as well? They were trying to push the "fleury saved the Pen's season" line earlier, but he's getting badly exposed. When you are getting outplayed by Bryzgalov in a playoff, you're doing something wrong.

Bet the prozac is getting scarce over at TSN, game 4 is going to be a suicide watch for the panel.

I used to cheer for the Pens until Schenn took a stick to the face.
