I thought the pictures were used to counter a quote that said the goal was because everyone was focused on Malkin.

Are people really harping on Tangradi this much? He done a few really positive things in the offensive zone like create turnovers and more offensive zone pressure. People just need to stop *****ing.

I'm not saying he's the perfect fit, but you guys also ***** when DB doesn't give a youngster a chance. Let's see what he does with 15-20 games on Geno's line. Let's just see. We don't need a whipping boy around here every game.

The team is playing great hockey. Just let it be for once and enjoy it.

I would be shocked if the Leafs dealt him. The only reason I can't say they won't, 100%, is because Burke was fired. But I don't think that's a move on their radar. (I imagine Clarke MacArthur would go long before Kulemin)

Kunitz and Dupuis is not perfect and will not suffice in the playoffs. Have you watched the playoffs when the other team just put all their focus on Sid and the other two 'perfect' linemates you mention cannot do squat with the extra space they're given.

Agree. Kunitz is fine, but only if he is the third wheel as you've mentioned a lot. I would be pretty pissed if I were Sid with the hometown discount and all if Shero did not pursue a better winger

It depends. Let's see what we have come the trade deadline. The defense looked pretty good so far. And we do have Malkin and Letang to sign. A wing for Sid may be our only hole. We have the luxury of seeing it play out then filling holes.

Eugh, this "winger for Sid" conversation is eight years in the making.

Basically this is how I feel, I won't start dogging on him until we see a larger sample size. It's still possible that that line combo could really work. Give the kid a chance, and more than 2 games, or 5 games even... I know it's a short season but we have some pretty limited options for a player on Geno's wing, so lets see if this pans out.

Horay!

Not like we cant bring in a winger at the deadline, no need to trade him after two games because hes not on fire already.

Also, it's not like Neal and Geno aren't producing...

This is the key thing for me. If he was actively hurting that line, I'd say there should be some urgency to make a change. But he's not. Might as well let him get his footing as long as it's doing no harm.

Dumb.
You're right I think it would have been better to stop the game so that Orpik could sit with him for a cup of tea. Pinky's up of coarse.

Does anyone know if the Pens are enjoying a brisk winters day in NYC? I hope so. The city is so peachy keen this time of the year. I know a great place for shaw-co-lates on 20th between Park and 5th.

OK I'm going to go now. My stories are on.

The second line is probably the best place for this funny enough.

Exactly. Add on top of that Sid's line has looked pedestrian and Kunitz has been largely invisible (except when he has screwed up). If we can give these guys the benefit of the doubt, surely we can have some patience with Tangradi.

Off topic: Wheeler just got run over by Chara. If they had thought bubbles, Wheeler's would say, "... w... t... f..." Chara's would say, "NBD."

I'm just absolutely elated that the pens are 2-0 against our two biggest division rivals, and both of them are 14th and 15th in our division right now. In a shortened season that is huge!

From reading the Rangers' board after the game most of their fans there would agree with you.
