The Couturier hit was cheap. Still not a fan of it.

IDK what the big deal is with the Giroux hit. Nothing that warrants carry over action.

Yup... I would almost put money on Simmonds going with him.

I want to see Engo go too. He has a good rep around the league but doesn't get to drop them enough.

He should answer for them. The Giroux hit was weird, but the Couturier hit was crap on Neal's part.

Hartnell Giroux Schenn
Read Couturier Simmonds
Talbot Laughton Voracek
Rinaldo Fedotenko Wellwood/Sestito

looks like they're going to try Schenn on the top line

Things will change a lot when Briere comes back and Laughton (maybe) gets sent back to juniors. I think Laughton will play his 5 games and stay. All the rumors are that he's too good to send back even at 18. Similar to Couturier he has excellent defensive skill and is pretty big.

Is Farnham going to play with the Pens (NHL) this year?

I saw him last weekend and he stood out. He was a diver, but he was good on the forecheck. Good skater too. Flashed some skill as well.

If Laughton is playing, he may fight Neal.

Most likely not. Dominik Uher, Warren Peters or Zach Sill would most likely get called up for a grinding role.

Ya we want Neal, a 40 goal guy, who had a bad wrist last year, fighting over a hit from last season.

As soon as Giroux throws down and answers for his dirty ass hit on Zubrus.

Please.

This board cracks me up sometimes.

Hopefully at some point, but not likely this season.

He's on an AHL only contract at the moment.

Who cares? It was cheap shot. He should own up to it. He can just tackle the guy.

If anything, Brayden Schenn should be dropping his gloves. That guy is a coward. I have no respect for him.

I still like my plan of fake glove dropping every single person in the arena. No one would ever expect it.

Didn't Neal already play an entire game against the Flyers after he was suspended for those hits? Why the hell are they talking about owning up to it now?

He did own up to it. He served a one game suspension.

How the **** could anyone want our 40 goal guy who jacked up his wrist last year throwing fists?

To show the idiot Flyers and their fans he is "manning up".

I'm 100% sure Giroux doesn't man up for his hit on Zubrus. Who gives a **** what the Flyers and their fans think?

Someone did that once and got Boulerice-style KO'd for it.

Because there's been a huge gap between the two teams playing, which means plenty of time for fantasy retribution scenarios.

I agree, but the players were focused on the playoffs. I expect a physical game on Saturday, but I won't expect any fights. Remember our last game of the regular season against the Flyers? People were expecting brawls because Ray Shero recalled Steve MacIntyre.

Well, the key is to get away from the actual players quickly. Once you start fake glove dropping the popcorn vendors and whatnot, you're probably in the clear.

Hmm, seems more like a shoegaze jazz metal math rock kind of name to me. Like My Bloody Valentine meets Cynic meets Slint.

Is he even playing this season? I figured he was preparing for a spot of Canada's Olympic Diving Team.

Flyers fans love bringing up Crosby's rookie season, but Schenn is doing the same stuff.

He just acts like an entitled little ***** but in fact he's just a little weasel.

Good player though. Someone will put him in his place. Hopefully it's a Penguins, specifically Engo.

I hope someone runs that twit through the boards. He's a great player, but he dives like crazy. That Asham deal was crap...
