Oh wait, you watch the CFL right?
Wow, didn't realize that playing 50 plus games in two playoff runs made him the Trent Dilfer of the NHL. I don't like the Pens but sometimes one must give respect where it is due. I can foresee someone bringing up Osgood next...

We expected him to be a 30 goal scorer and relied on him way too much. He had a pretty good 1st year with the team but other than that was a train wreck. He couldn't buy a goal for his life and was often injured. He WAS however a very good leader and captain for a very young team. Cally has said multiple times that Drury taught him a lot.

By the way, MAF still has scoreboard over Hank. It ain't even close. 2 Finals. Sure, he had a bad year this year in the playoffs, **** happens as that team is imploding. Hank's playoff success is there for everyone to see. He may not have the supporting cast of MAF but in the end it is about results.
MAF has never had to steal games or carry his team in any capacity. I have watched him since his international days, he is a medicore goalie. Always has been always will be. He can get streaky at times but any goalie can get streaky.

Pens fans are in love with him because he made one lucky pad save in SCF. He doesn't even have to overreach his pad if he isn't so far in his crease. He is a rebound giving machine and mentally fragile.

I agree with you that Hank hasn't proven anything. But that doesn't mean I am going to show respect to MAF. Stanley Cups are TEAM awards.

MAF has never pulled a Roy, Gieure, Ward, Hasek, Hextall like performance in the playoffs.

What makes him any different than Antii Nieimi? Similar stats, they've both won a cup and they're both young.

Ha maybe that wasn't the best analogy. FWIW I'd rank MAF in the top-5 in goalies but he, along with Thomas and Luongo have this weird characteristic of completely falling apart for stretches at a time and barely resembling an NHL goalie.

He plays for the Penguins. He's a former #1 overall pick. He makes unbelievable saves once in a while (followed by terrible goals).

I honestly don't think MAF is as bad as he's looking. Sidney Crosby has royally ****ed that team up. We're lucky, we have real captains who lead by example like Callahan and Alfie. The Pens have a guy who's pulling pee-wee moves out there and whining in post-game interviews while being out-classed by the guy he's trashing. How can a team dig deep and find motivation with a kid leading them?

As much as I hate Crosby I don't think his whining has anything to do with the ECHL defense and MAF's ECHL goaltending.

I'm not sure what was up with Callahan tonight. He was fantastic in Game 1, dropped off a little in Game 2 (how could you not after his first performance?), and then truly had "hands of stone" tonight. He's certainly allowed a bad game every once in awhile but it's playoffs time and we need our captain and 30 goal scorer to be more consistent.

Stepan was awful. He's becoming hard to watch. Not ready to give up on him quite yet but he's going to need to show some real improvement next season.

Kreider showed flashes of elite talent tonight. I'm hoping he'll come into Game 4 a bit more calm now that he knows what to expect.

And of course, Boyler and The King carried the team tonight. Stralman played a very strong game as well.

We had quite a few chances but I'd like to see more puck possession. Get back to the style of play we demonstrated in Game 1. Powerplay has got to be better. And we can't keep getting trapped in our own zone like we did tonight. Overall though, not a bad road win, and I'll certainly take it.

I think it all goes hand in hand. No confidence and Crosby as captain isn't doing anything to help re-build the confidence. He needs to go above and beyond, not stood to the level the Flyers are trying to bring him down too. I know personally when I play and I see my captain doing everything he can to boost up the club, up the moral on the bench and on the ice I'm gonna go out there and go harder every shift. But when I see my captain acting like a little girl, with the emotion of the game it's more likely to start doing the bush league things the Pens did all game. You set an example. The 'C' on your chest is more then a letter. You've been chosen by your team to lead them. They're going to follow what you do. Good or bad.

Rupp was an amazing signing. Fedotenko was an amazing signing.

Fedotenko seems to be quietly great wherever he signs haha. One of the more underrated players in the past decade.

I'm not sure Fedotenko was an "amazing" signing. For a signing to be "amazing" it needs to actually return quite a bit of value for the dollar. Feds has been right about at replacement level for both seasons as a Ranger.

Feds has had a huge impact on this team. I don't give a **** about "replacement level" and advanced stats in hockey. Useless ********.

Feds continues to be underrated.

There's a reason he constantly is involved in scoring chances, even though he botches them.

Underrated, very good third line player.

No. He's barely above replacement level. Clearly.
