Bob Errey just pretty much summed up the game "Matt Carkner has looked like Scott Stevens tonight"

I may be new to these boards and I do not mean to be trolling. But...

Fire Bylsma. Any one who still belives that he can still win?

He got one of the best teams in the NHL but he is a ****ing joke. I can't see any other coach in the world fail the same way he has over the last 3 years with this team.

Edit: Sorry for beeing drunk and pissed.

Sorry, my inner-Islander talk is coming out now, after this display.

They are the only two playing to stay in the lineup.

On a serious note, what is the expectation for what happens after this game. Do we just shrug it off and just call it a bad day. Or is it a larger problem with coaching/personnel.

I'm having trouble deciding whether its time to panic yet. How much longer can we say "its still early in the season"

Geno is now in his "there are no teammates on the ice besides me" mode.

Well first of all, take a breath. They suck right now but this is way too big picture for what's going on here.

Second, I'm a little worried/perturbed by Crosby. He just looks 'meh' attitude-wise this year. Even when he scores. Just not feelin Crosby so far this season.

this has got to be embarassing for the players and coaches. If this continues for a few more games, yeah, i wouldn't be surprised to see disco go.

No, taking of their gloves would be too much effort for any Penguin.

Can the Pens fans ask the owners to lock us out?

No idea why the Pens haven't been more aggressive in trying to start a fight, lay out an ISlanders player, or just do something to make it look like they have not essentially given up.

I know it's not the case, but it almost feels like Despres has half of this team's shots tonight.

It will be shrugged off. Guarantee it.

Don't mind me as I go find something to eat with 5 minutes left. Doubt I miss a thing.

It has to be frustrating when you turn the TV on every night and see star players playing with star players on other teams blasting away scoring goals left and right, and you are making passes to fourth liners and AHL quality wingers who fan on the puck and miss the net every time. Or they choose to shoot the puck into the goalie's gut on every two on one and never pass it to you, despite the full friggin trophy case on your wall and the large mouth bass on theirs.
