To be fair, Stafford challenged Hartnell. Kudos to Stafford for hanging in there.

I'm pretty sure Engo or some other tough guy challenged him in the past too after a questionable hit.

You do know the Pens have only played 1 game, right?

I could be wrong, but I'm fairly certain Sid was on a 130+ point pace the last time he played with Kunitz and Dupuis regularly.

Like I said, Sid will likely produce *something* no matter who he's paired with. But why saddle him with little talent when he could produce *more* with actual wingers?

The Penguins' competitive advantage is having both Sid and Geno. But once you start to saddle them with linemates that won't create and force them to basically do everything on their own, that competitive advantage gets minimized.

If anything, put Cooke with Malkin and Neal. Those two just need a third wheel who'll go in and forecheck anyway. Leave Kunitz with Sid, and move Tangradi up to the other wing, then drop Dupuis down with Sutter and Kennedy.

Yeah. Hartnell with two dirty hits from behind, then fights the littliest guy on the team. Typical. Good for Stafford though.

It should have been Marcus Foligno challenging Scott Hartnell, not Drew Stafford.


Marcus Foligno was so pissed when the refs broke up the fight, between him and Luke Schenn earlier in the game.

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.
Is it?

I honestly don't remember those two playing together.

Oh well just have to hope for the best with Tangradi and Malkin.

I didn't understand that either, both dropped the gloves and the linesmen went right in.

Yeah, I'd love Hartnell on the Penguins. He's a good player.


I can't believe I just said that.

Stafford is 6'2 215 pounds, granted not a fighter by any means though.

Engo is listed at 6"2 202 pounds. Is Stafford really bigger than Engo?

Lets open up a 4 pt lead on these mofos!!! Not sure how Jeffrey is out of the lineup and Craig Adams is still there... Especially when DB said Jeffrey could be inserted on the second line any given night...

Dennis Sicard is like 5'11 and 190lbs. He's one of the best fighters in the SPHL.

Stafford is 6.2/214 pounds as per NHL.com. Lets not cry for him... less so as he challenged Ginger**** himself.
We'd all love Hartnell if he was a Pen. The guy can play, sticks up for teammates and agitates like few others.

Ups... saw this had been addressed already. Carry on .

He sticks up for teammates if the one that hit his buddy is not a good fighter or bigger than him. Remember the hit Engo put on Giroux?

But I'd want want him on the Pens too.

For sure. I really don't think Engle is even 6'2. He's just a nasty freakish strong human who is an unreal fighter.

Kunitz can play on either line. He has proven that. Cooke has proven that he can produce on a Crosby line, but I can't honestly recall Cooke playing with Malkin all that much. When Cooke was on Crosby's line, they looked like they complimented each other very well; I never got the impression that Crosby had to dumb down his game to accommodate Cooke, or that Cooke was lost or overwhelmed.

That may be the case as well with Cooke on the Malkin/Neal line, I would actually really like to see that. If Cooke could pull that off, he would prove to be more dynamic a player than even I am willing to give him credit for. Won't know until we see it though. Bylsma has said Kennedy, Glass, and Cooke, so hopefully we will get to see him try out that spot.

NYR are always physical and cycle the puck with their big bodies. I'm very interested to see how Martin plays tonight. He did play very well against the flyers, lets see. I'm not shy that i can't stand the guy but more than willing to admit when he does play well.

Edit: You know whats sad. I'm just as interested to see what we get out of Martin-Orpik as I am Tangradi and Despres lol.
