I guess I just don't understand leaving Despres on the roster instead of sending him back to WBS if he's going to play 9 minutes a night or sit in the press box. I get easing him in but it's not like he's never played an NHL game before. He has playoff games under his belt.

Unless they're sitting him because there's a trade going down. Strike up the Rossi rumor mill!

Boo. Unless it's a Lovejoy "showcase." Still would rather Despres play instead of Engo in that case.

Maybe Lovejoy wants another go with Jim Slater after last year?

I can't wait for more "great hockey" from him. Same old Adams who still makes mistakes, has no potential to get better, and is occupying a roster spot of a young player who COULD get better while still providing a negative or better production.

Adams last positive +- year was back in 2005. That was his 2nd out of 12 years. But the Pens have a .8 AHL pt/game player on the bench (DJ) who is young and obviously has no potential to be better.....

Quite possible that Depres involved in trade and is being benched to avoid injury.....start the rumors.

Bylsma said Vokoun will start against Jets tonight because "Tomas' record in Ottawa (5-12) is not really one we want to experiment with."
So it's because of Vokoun & not Fleury.

Bylsma isn't looking for points or +/- out of Adams. The guy kills penalties and the biggest thing is he's steady and you know what you're going to get out of him. He keeps it simple and isn't going to commit an egregious turnover like Jeffrey did against the Flyers that might cost you a game.

Adams > Jeffery is the consensus around here and rightfully so.

Ah. So you bench him to find more consistency in play, demeanor. What an asshat.

Oh and we might as well bench Crosby and Malkin while we're at it. Since they weren't very consistent last game either.

Yeah that makes sense. We want to see more consistency in his play by not letting him play.

Very interested to see how Lovejoy performs here. Hopefully he justifies the organizations faith in him.

So, let's see. The Toronto game was his most consistent of the year. Engo has been playing like he's got one eye shut all year, not just after the fight. Lovejoy . . . oh, just ROFL.

Now, would someone care to explain to me why Dan Bylsma is a great coach.

Fantastic. Plays better than Eng but gets benched.

Agreed. He's in whether we like it or not. All we can do is hope he plays well and justifies their decision.

I hope he doesn't. If he does, then they'll think it's o'k to use him again in the playoffs.

Guys like that have limits. Guys like Despres, if you let them work the kinks out now, might prove to be worth the faith in April.

I'll be blunt: Name ONE player (not elite but excellent of good caliber prospect) who's handling gives you the slightest amount of faith in how Bylsma will handle Bennett, Morrow, Pouliot, etc.

Personally, I would have started Fleury three games in a row - TOR, WPG, and OTT, then start Vokoun vs NYI back at home. But I guess they are really serious about giving Fleury some rest. Can't really argue with that. The Flyers and Rangers may end up burning out Bryz and Hank because their backups aren't that good.
