Penguins - In the Room: Thoughts

Just got finished catching up on a few episodes of In the Room. At one point, Malkin was reading off the starting line before the game, it went something like,

"Really bad soccer player, number 5. Really tall defenseman, number 41. I won't say how I feel about 17, then me and Nealer!"

Now if it was a regular roster player, I could just let it pass as ball-busting, but given who it was it seemed pretty damn harsh. I won't say that Boychuk should have stayed, but it has to suck when your linemates (who you barely know) are so vocal about how they hate playing with you.

I also had no idea Neal was so vocal about stuff on the ice. It was a little odd to see him calling out Geno on a few occasions.

I don't get this ... do people go looking for drama now where it doesn't exist? Is anyone NOT aware of what a clown Geno is and that he ribs everyone? Is this what we get from 15 years of reality TV crap... everyone looking for signs of drama? Boychuk is a great big grown man chuck and can handle any locker room jabs just fine. There was no malicious intent there.

Common man, lighten up.

As for Geno and Neal calling each other out, part of the game. I'm sure if stuff got out of line, whoever was doing it wouldn't last long around here.

Haha, lighten up? I'm just commenting on a show, it doesn't affect me at all.

In that one clip, I think Geno was actually pissed at Neal for not returning the pass. As he put it, "I was open." Neal then goes "Well what if I'd scored [on my shot]?" And Geno was just like "So what?"

I think thats just the nature of good players. Look at a rookie Sid telling Ziggy, Rex and Jonny Drama how to score goals. Anyone remember Recchi, Cullen and Stevens?

Doesn't Vitale sound like Badger from Breaking Bad to kick off the first scene of the first show?

It affected you enough to be "concerned" such that you posted about it and inquired if others felt the same. That's too much concern.

I don't recall inquiring anything. Just figured I'd start a thread about the show since I didn't see one already.

Inquire, ask about, talk about... you get the idea.

This ^ sounds like a person concerned about the goings on in the room, but that's just me. Anyway, carry on and keep it clean, hosers.

It's just the nature of most players. You get into it with line mates sometimes in games because you'll have thought the play should have developed differently, that he should have shot/passed and vice versa. My roommate/teammate now I've played with since junior and we'll get into disagreements at least once or twice a game about a look off or a botched 2-on-1 or 3-on-2.

It's good to have guys hungry for the puck.

If I remember correctly that's not even what he said about Boychuck...he said something along the lines of "what do I say about 17?" As in...he doesn't know him well enough

Malkin has a very sarcastic sense of humor, a dry cut you to the bone type of joking, if you are sensitive or not used to it can come off as an insult.

Yeah, it's just Malkin's sense of humor.

I mean, this is the guy who said the following about Max Talbot when asked how Talbot helps Malkin's game:

Quote:
"[He plays with] lots of emotion," Malkin said. "[He never stops] skating. Yeah, little bit bad hands."

Malkin began to laugh, as did his audience. But he wasn't finished.

"He has lots of scoring chances, [but doesn't] score," Malkin said. "Just [into an] empty net. It's OK. He'll learn over the summer."
And this came AFTER Talbot scored 2 goals (the last, to be fair, was into an empty net) to help the Pens win 4-2 that game in a Stanley Cup finals game.

As written, it looks pretty mean. But it's just his sense of humor. (And, pretty truthful).

That's what I thought he was getting at as well. In that, he didn't actually have a joke because he didn't really know him.

In the Room is a lot better than Caps Red Line. I watched an episode last night and it seemed like it was made by a high school class.

Yeah it's pretty good. That being said, I'd love it if they covered more stuff and treated it like an extended documentary. But without HBO backing, I guess the potential audience is a bit limited.

Cooke talking to the ref about Chara taking a weird route to the puck and trying to hit him before he got to the puck:

"I'm just asking, I'm not yelling"

I really love hearing these guys mic'd up. They should do more of this in the regular season, and just retain creative control over it so that they can edit anything particularly problematic out.
