I feel much more comfortable with Vokoun in net than MAF.

It would seem that the result of the players only meeting was "Let's win this game, and then we'll all start modeling our game after Paul Martin."

That's hypothetical though. A lot could happen in the next few weeks.
can't wait to see that happens

If Randy Carlyle was coach he'd be playing Engo or Lovejoy 30 minutes a game. Look what he's doing in Toronto with that d. You want to talk about frustrated fanbases...there was a huge article about Carlyle and his questionable managing of icetime on TSN today.

In a shortened season, I give DB a month tops. Shero should be feeling pressure to go deep this postseason.

Maybe he's just playing tentative because of his concussion. He does look a little leary sometimes of battling in the corners. If he's worried about getting hurt he's never going to be the same player.
Yeah I guess it's not the injury because he didn't look that way (as much at least) when he came back. He doesn't even come close to mixin it up even. I miss his grinch face.

If they promote anybody, it will be another wasted season.

I heard they can't start a fight until they complete a pass...

So do I. His composure and more subtle movements in net are easier to handle. Not every shot requires a bit of body popping.

I still think he grew that so that Brent Johnson wouldn't recognize him

Steigerwald watches this game and somehow comes to the conclusion that the appropriate thing to say in the third period is "lolislanders"

The fact that Chris Kunitz is going to get a point enrages me.

OK guys... Dupuis scored. Bylsma is safe, everything is going to be just fine.

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.
I think it's the situation around him. During the start of this game, he came out flying...he was gaining the neutral zone with speed and giving it to his wingers in space. The wingers flub the play pretty much every time, the Pens start sucking, and he gets discouraged. He was fantastic to start the game, but the game got away from the Penguins and it affected his play. That's happened a few times already.

Such ******** that Sid still doesn't have players that he can even play a simple give and go with. Here you have the best talent the league has seen since Lemieux, and his prime athletic years have been squandered by a combination of no talent surrounding him, injuries and largely mediocre coaching. I don't even know why I care anymore.
