Well, last year the Pens were owning them regardless, but IIRC in years past we haven't fared so well in MSG.

This also reunites the Pens best line from last season as well.

But I get why DB has Kunitz with Crosby, but why not switch Tangradi and Dupuis?
This is what I was thinking as well. In reality Bylsma should have been auditioning guys for Crosby's wing during camp and not Malkin's. He should have kept that Kunitz-Malkin-Neal line together from last season.

I get that he doesn't want all of the good wingers to play with Malkin, but that might have been the best thing for the team to do. We'll see what happens the more this season goes along.

A four point cushion on the Rangers and Flyers would be great. With the short season, any streak (good or bad) is huge.

There is not one single forward over the past 5 years who has been a more solid dose of kryptonite to Geno than Dupuis.

It is downright scary how bad that fit is. Anything else.
How about...

Kunitz - Crosby - Tangradi
Cooke - Malkin - Neal
Dupuis - Sutter - Kennedy

Flyers' fans are talking about tanking for a lottery pick.

Even though they are copying our thing, my life is now complete.

Are you really that interested in seeing Sid not being able to produce? Hell, Sid can do it on his own. Put him on the fourth line with Glass and Adams. That way the rest of our team can be so much more balanced.

I could be wrong, but I'm fairly certain that every game last season that had Cooke and Crosby on the same line saw one or both of them produce.

Or let's just keep it the same knowing Malkin and Neal will produce amongst themselves anyways while Player X on the right skates around. Crosby's line is fine. We don't have to go moving 18 things around because there's a 10% chance Tangradi will actually make something happen on a different line.

This Tangradi love has officially turned to outright insanity. Can you at least wait till he actually scores a goal before you put him on the top line of a Stanly Cup favorite? Hell, how about just an assist? Maybe consecutive good shifts? lol

I think Mario should come out of retirement. Then our lines could be:

Kunitz-Sid-Tangradi
Neal-Malkin-Tangradi
Cooke-Mario-Tangradi
Tangradi-Suter-Tangradi

Anyway, was nice seeing the Cryers lose again today. Hartnell was once again the biggest ****** on the ice.

Him and the guy from H2O are like best friends or something. The guy was in CM Punk's documentary about being straight-edge.

Absolutely.

Anyone actually surprised? Losing a quick 4 points is HUGE. We need to make sure we sprint our way out there w/ a lead. This season will be over before we know it.

His D bag thing on TV is obviously acting, he's an excellent wrestler in the ring and on the microphone. He truly is what he says he is.

BEST IN THE WORLD!
I stopped watching wrestling years ago, but i doubt anyone could beat the greatest of all time:

And Stafford stuck in there like a champ, even took Scotty down at the end. How embarrassing.
