Add Z and Lovejoy to that. I actually think Z is the worst of the bunch.

Since theres 2 days between games now. Can we get you amazing avatar makers to make us some to mock the situation? Perhaps that will be the spark we need...

Thats if you want to, i wouldn't blame you if you didn't want to do anything Pens worthy the next 2 days.

Yeah, right.

Where every team is going to go "Ooooh no, don't want that, thanks. Did you see how he played in the Pens - Flyers series?"



Never in my wildest imagination would i envision this team being in this hole, it's just surreal.

I've been calling for Orpik to be moved for months. His physical play every now and then doesn't make up for his idiotic turnovers and his being regularly out of position trying to hunt for a big hit.

Bylsma will just say they didn't get to their game, and all will be forgiven.

Honestly, he needs to go, immediately following this series. This is a meltdown of beyond epic proportions. That starts at the top.

After that, their entire defense except for Letang and Engelland need to go. I'm sure he has, but I haven't noticed Engo make more than 1 mistake this series. Actually, I'd keep Nisky too. Orpik, Z, Martin, Lovejoy should all go. Replace them with some big, nasty D men.

Also to go should be Adams, Kennedy, Cooke, and Park. They bring nothing except for good PK, which has been complete **** this series. Neutered Matt Cooke is a waste. Replace them with guys that can crash and bang.

And finally, they need to find a competent backup goalie. Someone that can give Fleury some rest, and step in when Fleury sucks.

If e everyone is laughing at the last goal, why not watch Game 4?

I think I'm already at the acceptance stage of grief, haha.

Won't even get a return that resembles anything like the Flyers got.

Martin and Orpik are $9 million of immobility.

Only good that comes from this is that getting destroyed will mean major changes should be upcoming. At least 2 of Martin/Orpik/Michalek trio has to go.

You know, I've been getting the same sort of vibe from this team. There just doesn't seem to be the hunger to play a 200-foot game from a lot of players, and a lot of those guys are the ones who already got their Cup in 2009. Keeping the same bottom six guys around for multiple seasons might not be the best idea to keep that hunger for a Cup alive.

As for the team as a whole (specifically the defense), I honestly don't know what Shero's going to do.

Letang's a keeper, and while he's not having a very good series, Engelland is a useful bottom pairing guy who adds toughness for a cheap contract. I also wouldn't mind keeping Niskanen around. After that? I wouldn't bat an eyelash if Orpik, Martin, or Michalek (or all three) were moved. Our "Big Four" turned out to be a Big One (Letang), with three pylons playing over 20 minutes a night.

Up front, offense doesn't seem to be an issue. But collectively they seem no longer to even care to play defense. A lot of times it's the forwards who are the cause for opposition players being left wide open or unattended, for easy tap in goals or wide open passes.

I just don't know. This team imploded in a big way. While I wasn't thinking beating Philadelphia was a guarantee, I certainly never thought this team would get swept, or give up the amount of goals they have.

i don't recall a team being spanked in playoffs so badly.

MAF - elite goalie who can't stop a beachball
Stall - shut down center who can't even shut down a door on the bench
Geno - mvp who is owned by 18 year old

is this happening for real?
