Looks like everyone but the injured (Crosby, Letang, Martin) on the ice for #Penguins game-day skate.

atleast Jokinen can actually win faceoffs so there's nothing wrong with trying it.

but if that line doesn't work, he really should try changing the lines. I'd personally start with Kunitz Malkin Neal line

then maybe

Dupuis Jokinen Iginla
Morrow Sutter Cooke

or

Morrow Jokinen Iginla
Cooke Sutter Dupuis

The same thing? Jokinen has literally never even practiced with the Pens before today. I don't understand the complaint here.

And god forbid he try Kunitz-Malkin-Neal. As it is now if Malkin's line does nothing(as it has) then game over.

No Vitale but TK on the 4th line. Everyone here is confused about whether they're supposed to feel rage or joy right now.

I'm fine with Kennedy over vitale as long as Kennedy is at wing not center. Glass over Vitale is what I don't like

Brooks Orpik and Mark Eaton taking turns working point on the 2nd power play. #FirePower -SK
http://twitter.com/PensInsideScoop/s...85893652668416

By the way, that 2nd PP unit had Dupuis and Oprik/Eaton up top with Kennedy, Morrow & Jokinen down below #Pens -SK

our 4th line doesn't have a center. its not a question

This is literally 3 games in a row with 3 centers dressed. How does an NHL head coach think that is a good idea?

It's amazing how exposed we are without the Crosby.

Sid wins faceoffs, posses the puck and creates spectacular chances almost every shift.

Absentees or not, we are better than the Rangers. Lets show them that again.
I have a lot more confidence in the former than the latter.

Our game plan is predicated on defensemen making fast, crisp breakout passes and then joining the rush. Do you see Bylsma adjusting that to account for the Four Pylons in his lineup?

With respect, the being exposed part has a lot more to do with not having Letang AND Martin and using a game plan predicated on having those two.

Jussi Jokinen may turn out to be really good for the Pens.

Plus when we don't resign Kennedy this summer Jokinen can just fill his spot. He's far more versatile as well.
