Bylsma said Paul Martin, who was minus-3, did not play late because of an unspecified injury.

I think this game pretty much shows getting a shiney new winger for this team would not change them. Team needs something big done to them. As for what? i hope it's a new coach, because even with a trade they would still play this way under Bylsma. They need to do something soon, as in within the next couple weeks. It's a short season. It could also do us wonders, like when we first got Bylsma and dominated, and won the cup.

I love when fans do this. "If we count every good scoring chance the other team had as a goal, and don't do the same for our team, and don't count the 3 posts we hit as goals either, we'd have gotten blown out!"

We were thoroughly outplayed in this game. You can say that. No need to get all hyperbolic.

~Dupuis. One bad turnover. Good game other than that

-Neal. He loses every battle that smaller guys win and can't accept a pass to save his life

-everyone else


Also, why the Hell was the goalie out of the net when we're down 4-1 with 40 seconds left?
I'm sorry but Sid can **** off until he shows a pulse of his own, and I love Sid.

What about Tom Fitzgerald? Let's get him back behind the bench.

As you know, I live in Dallas. Here's what happened: In, I think, his second season, he boarded someone (I forget who) and got suspended for it. He never forechecked the same way again. The guy has become a Canadian Petr Sykora with a little more size and less creativity.

I'd be ok with that at this point.

Bortuzzo looked awful
Nisky was just as bad
Seriously, I wouldn't mind never seeing Tanner Glass in the lineup ever again.
- Despres not being in the lineup. He better be in vs Monreal.

I think it is time to move Orpik, picks, and prospects for some offensive depth.

If this team could have played defense for at least the last 20 seconds of the first and second period, we may have had a chance at the Win. But seeing our effort the entire game, we really didn't.

Which is complete ********.

He should have never changed.

O'k, it would have been 8-3. Better? Really, if you look at number of times the goalie was hung out to dry, whether or not the other team scored, then this one was WORSE than the Islanders debacle.

So long to the opportunity of moving a roster defenseman for the time being.

And to add injury to insult, Martin is apparently hurt.

Chill Ward played well. Pens had chances even tho they played like garbage as a whole.

We will be playing well near the deadline and be getting Malkin and Martin back and Shero will claim we don't need to make any moves?

For the time being the Penguins are still leading the division. That give Shero time to see things play out. I'm not looking forward to the next 2-4 weeks on this board
Shero doesn't need 2-4 weeks to know how this is going to play out. One and done.

Agreed. Shero inherited the 2 greatest players in the game and won the cup with them. He has made decent trades, but did little to nothing to help this team in the draft offensively. For god sakes one of Crosby's wingers for 4 straight years is a guy who was a throwin during a trade for hossa. Dupuis has been great, but he'd be better on a third line.

Breakouts are a big problem with this team and he's the only guy who gets back to offer the D options instead of hanging out flat footed waiting for a hail mary the D can't make and the forward doesn't have good enough hands to catch. Hell, I saw Sid freelance and decide to use the Gomez breakout once and we got a shot out of it.

Besides, every zone possession of his line died on James Neal's stick. Or, more accurately, his skate blade after he booted an easy pass to the hurricanes.
