He doesn't have answers for us humans AND HE'S NOT GOING TO GIVE THEM TO US, EITHER.

Bylsma is going to make damn sure Sid and Iginla never play on the same line.

I'll help you with what Blysma will probably say about Neal:

He has a lower body injury, and there is no timetable for his return.

Crosby sure practicing like a guy who is playing soon. Lots of signs pointing that way today.

if Crosby doesn't play tomorrow, I'm deleting Kirk's account. Holy Cow. I can't even deal with this anymore.

YOU'RE TEARING ME APART.

Bennett and Iginla had some really good shifts together yesterday if I recall. I think they'll be fine together.

I'm more optimistic: lower body injury, day to day.

WTF are you blaming me for your mood swings? Perhaps next time your docs prescribe meds, you won't let your wife tell you the generic Chinese brand works just as well.

I think it's pretty clear with a healthy Top-6 Bylsma still wants to run Neal-Geno-Iggy ("best" case scenario). Even with Iggy on the right, that line is not a maximization of our Top-6 talent.

Sure sets up that way. No problem with that either. Frankly, I think Malkin played his best hockey with Bennett on his LW this year for that brief time. As long as this doesn't turn long term into an excuse to have Iggy or Neal play LW, I've got no problem with it.

Did George Patton ever feel like letting his superiors know where he was going on an offensive?

I really can't disagree with any of that. You are a living, posting testament to the wonders of Chinese medicine.

Sid and Jokinen split time on the top PP unit, Kennedy on the 2nd unit. Doesn't look like they're 100% sure Sid is going to be in.

With Iggy at RW, yes. It really does make a difference. People say 'well, Iggy can't play with Geno'. Only time he played pretty much the whole game on Geno's RW was with Duper at LW nine days ago, and that just happened to be the one game where he looked really good with Geno (unfortunately, Dupuis' hands were not quite as accommodating on that evening).

I don't know. I think you'll see Sid with Dupuis and Iggy for some shifts. And, I'm wondering if what Kunitz-Sid-Duper and Sunshine-Geno-Iggy means is that Neal isn't coming back so quickly.

Can anyone confirm or deny the rumor that Orpik approached Sid today during practice with a dental drill and asked 'is it safe'?

It didn't seem that way to me based on the lines yesterday. He had it all set up for Sid to step in for Jokinen. Neal getting hurt changes things.

This is what I'm saying.

If he thinks Neal is out maybe a game tops, then I expect to see a bit of Dupuis-Sid-Iggy, no matter how the game starts.

If Neal could be a couple of weeks, then these lines make perfect sense.

Crosby says his situation hasn't changed and no new examination of his jaw is scheduled.
