That's what I told my dad last night, hadn't seen this much offence in Montreal since the good old Mario days when he had scored 4 here

My goodness, last night made me realize how much I miss those days. Sid is a fantastic player, but he couldn't shine Mario's shoes.

Then we will all wonder what to do when we struggle to score. If he drafts D in the first two rounds.

True.

I saw a stat that counting playoffs the Pens have been involved in the last 4 NHL games that have had a combined 13 goals. Surprisingly they have won 3 of the 4.

Feb 11, 2012, WPG (5) - PIT (8)

Apr 13, 2012, Playoffs (Game 2) PHI (8) - PIT (5)

Apr 18, 2012, Playoffs, (Game 4) PIT (10) - PHI (3)

Mar 2, 2013, PIT (7) - MTL (6) OT

It will be a minor miracle with everything clicking at the right time for us to win a Cup. We are a hot mess out there.
I'm right there with you Cole. I don't want to waste significant assets until the internal issues are solved.

Catching up on the last few pages, I saw a brief Sutter vs Staal debate. Staal is the clear victor as far as I'm concerned, but we're also talking about a $4 million cap hit difference. I think you'd be hard pressed to find any other player in the league as good as Sutter for $2 million.

Re-watching the game, I want to say:

I was critical of moving Neal to Sutter's line for two reasons. 1) I WANT SID TO HAVE SHINY TOYS, DUH! 2) Neal has been horrible at ES hockey this year, so making him the third wheel on the Sid line seemed like the best way to take advantage of his tools (his shot).

If he's going to play like he did last night: physical, driving to the net, creating space in the center of the ice, etc... the Pens can roll 2 scoring lines, with or without Geno. (Much better with Geno, obviously)

In fact, if Neal had played the first month like he played last night, I'm guessing no one would have had issues with the "3rd wheel" on that line, because they would have been producing at a much higher clip.

Yup. I think he has picked up a lot more from playing with Geno than we see when he is actually playing with Geno. There have been a few moments in the past few games where I could have changed the name and number on his jersey and wouldn't have been able to tell the difference.

If he can manage to fit that type of play into Malkin's line, it would be a real sight to behold.

Swapping one crappy player out for another really doesn't accomplish a whole lot.

Our entire defense is back to watching the play and not being aggressive. What gives? It's so frustrating to watch Penguin games. Just so frustrating.
It's not the "defense" it is the total team defense including forwards.

Ask yourself what has Glass done?
HA! Hold up a sec... I guess I obviously haven't been paying enough attention.

Kennedy has four points? Total?!?

That's gotta be one of the saddest/most pathetic things I've heard all season. And that's saying something.

you never know why they are missing: medical, off-ice, film, etc... but yea, the ones who have played the worst are the ones taking the day off from skating. It's about annoying, superficially, at least.

And his 2 million means nothing
I will be surprised. TK will be lucky to get us a 4th. He is a 2million dollar winger with 2 goals. On a team with the two best centers in world with a need for a top six winger. He doesn't kill penalties, and his Ice time is very low.

Hopefully we'll get to see if I'm right.

At this point does it really matter what TK fetches in return? He is detrimental to this team. He has moved into uncharted levels of uselessness. Boychuk would be worlds better at this point. He may not score but he seems to have some awareness and hockey IQ.
