Anyway, that is not my point. My point is that he brought nothing to the table other than some energy and that can easily be found elsewhere IMO.
im knocking him for his complete inability to clear the zone, on the penalty kill AND 5v5

Exactly. IF he could have done those things with success, those would have been some of the other things he brought to the table (other than energy). But, he didn't. He sucked at those things and those are the facets (IMO) that an "energy" kind of 4th liner should have to their games.

I am waiting for the Penguins to go into the 5-on-5 penalty kill mode where we trap them in their own end as if we had a power play.

I'm excited for this one, as I may be getting (FREE) tickets to the game!

I think the Pens are going to run into the Soviet Union (Burmi, Poni and Antro) and generate no offense at all.

3-0 for the Jets - Byfuglien scores a hattie, and Kane with 6 assists.

Player audio from the MTS



Ron Hainsey – Play of the defence. Communication between the D and low forward. Has he played more minutes this season? How has he adjusted his game over course of his career? Has his evolution as a defenceman allowed him to focus on different areas?

Mark Stuart – Best defence is being in offensive zone. Extra ice minutes impacting him? Any adjustments with his defensive pairing?

Chris Thorburn – Saying hello to Mr. Glass. Friends before and after game but not during. Who is the closest friend he has ever fought? How have they checked Crosby in the past? Did he get any assignments against him in Atlanta? Getting a goal early in the season. How will he feel if he finds himself on the ice with Glass and Slater if fans chant GST?

Kyle Wellwood – Handling playing a fast game. Finding a way to play more than just a skill game. His level of conditioning. Is it maddening as ever to be scratched at this point in his career. What does he need to do to erase doubt in coach’s mind?

Mark Scheifele – Assessment of his game. How hard is it to show how good he can be when he is given the role he is. Is he being given a fair shot? Anxious about the next 2 games? Wanting to get on the board.

I think we are going to work the Pens. 4-2. They have Sid/Malkin/Neal and nine 3rd liners.

This game will open some eyes. Jets make a statement.

How is it weird:

I'm pumped. I had the first pick in our group and this game was my first choice. Crosby, Malkin, and the Pens live for the first time in WPG. Friday night party atmosphere. I went to the Pens game last year, we won our first home game. But the star power was not on the ice, no Crosby,Malkin, or Kane. I expect the Jets to come out strong in front of a crazy crowd, not a Saturday afternoon crowd. I think we win but turn around and lose on Sunday.

Here's hoping the crowd doesn't get too down. I thought the Ottawa crowd was the worst I've seen and was really surprised given the home opener feeling. Hardly any Go Jets Go chants and not much energy at all.

I agree. The pens have zero depth. Their D is awful outside of Letang and Oprik. MAF is questionable.

The Pens best players are better then ours...but we have by far more pretty good players then they do.

They don't tell the whole story... they tell part and the average of the story... so ignoring them is just as bad if not worse than completely depending on them...

They wanted Glass for the same reason Chevy wanted Peluso...

Also last season they put skilled guys on the PK mostly:
Letang, Dupuis, etc

PLayers play within a system on the PK and the whole Jets PK system was rotten. I don't think you can say one player was the weak link.
If it was more system than players how come some of our guys were some of the best PKers in the league (Burmi)...

Last year the Pens imposed their game on us (when Gino and kid were playing) and we fell into the trap of playing their style and no way we win in a run and gun affair.

I have to say it’s not that I am confident but weirdly I am looking forward to the challenge without fear. I am also happy we get a potentially fired up Pens team because I want to see how we measure up? I really think it is a test for us to see if we can impose our style and roll 4 lines at them and try to wear them down with our cycle game. They will be tough and that's a good thing.

I will be at the game and I am jacked for this one.

Myzie, Glass may be a nice guy - but he was a really brutal Penalty Killer. Tried hard, played physical - I thought he was ok.

Pitt offered him more money, so off he goes...not a major loss to our team in my opinion

The oracle hath spoken!

I'm interested to see how Noel does the lineup. I think if we keep Little at RW he's bound to bury a few and I think this is just as good a game as any to do so.

Don't know why we're bothering to play this game then. I like that outcome. Let's just go with it and be done.

Tanner said he would have loved to resign and I'm sure Chevy made him a fair offer but if the Pens offered more or were even in the Jets ballpark you cant blame Tanner a legitimate chance at a ring. I wish him much success ... except for tomorrow.

I don't blame him one bit. All I am saying is that I liked what he brought to the team and am disappointed he is not on the team any longer. I went over to the penguins board to see what they thought of him so far and from the responses I got they have liked his play too.

Please tell me that Buff, Jokinen, and Crosby got points on all their teams goals, 'cuz that'd really help me out in my hockey pool!

If the Jets let in 5 goals I'll be pissed whether they manage to score more or not.

IMO e key to winning the game is staying out of the penalty box. You just can't give Malkin and Crosby too much time on the PP.
