He brought this vitriol on himself. He's a ****ing mental case, and he's shown it repeatedly since '09.

He should be as good as gone, but good luck to Shero for finding a taker on that contract.
4.7 GAA in Playoffs since 09. MAF sucks, our D-System sucks, and DB looks around like a clown.

Ottawa pulls their goalie.. ties the game to take it to OT.

DB are you watching???!?!???!


I'm over it. If Vokoun starts game 5, no excuses. We should still win.

Only in your bizarre, delusional world are Pens fans giddy about Fleury's performance right now. Tell yourself whatever you have to I guess.

I don't care if Vokoun gives up 8 goals next game as long as none of them are from behind the goal line.

Can't even imagine how deflating it is for a team scoring 4 goals a game to lose because of such brutal goaltending for a 2nd year in a row.

Please don't try and sugar coat the loss, or the series for that mater. This is the worst playoff showing from this core.

Forgive me if I am wrong... but after the Philly series, didnt Bylsma say that they werent going to plow ahead with no adjustments ever again? Lots of talk... everything remains exactly the same

No you're right about that. All series the isles skate the puck in and keep it in. All series we dump the puck in...maybe attempt a shot...and it's going the other way.

Errey and Jay talking about the Pens going 'back to the drawing board'. lol. Bylsma probably draws up plays on a cocktail napkin. Don't think I've ever hated a coach more than I hate DB. When your D gets torched, over and over and over again, wouldn't common sense say to maybe try something new? I'm really starting to wonder if he has some kind of mental disorder. Slight retardation or something.

Can we be adults. It's 2-2 we can win...don't deserve it all but we can....MAF is a person...he's broken and it's sad...don't pile on....he's a real person with real feelings and a real family

We will never know even if it happens, but either Mario or Shero need to have a nice talk with the coaching staff right now.
Players are not mentally prepared, there is no structure in play and no adjustments, lots of undisciplined penalties.
It looks like Philly series all over again only with better special teams play.

Fleury was horrendous.

However, the inability to clear pucks and the need for some players, Letang and Malkin being primary culprits, to go for low percentage passes in the defensive zone is equally damning.

seriously.

2 goals MAF was literally run into by his own players and one went off a defender's skate.

He was bad but people are somehow turning 2 goals into all 6

Both goalies are looking like garbage. Nabokov is losing position on every shot. You guys better start Volcano or the series will be over for the Pens.

Hey, at least the conditional aspect of the Murray trade likely won't come into effect.

Here's the drawing board:

When the Puck is being contested below the defensive goal line, you shouldn't have 3 forwards on the offensive side of the red line

"We have defense and goaltending now" they said.

"It'll be different this year" they said.

Not many jobs in the world care too much about your feelings if you perform so badly, let alone those that earn such a salary. I don't feel bad for 'em. If he doesn't like it, he can go flip burgers.

It was funny watching the save percentage of Fleury in the series posted on the screen by TSN.

It sucks but what can you do but laugh at this point and take our licks from other fan bases?

The team got itself in trouble letting DB keep the reigns after last year.

And Shero and company hoped Fleury had it in him to bounce back. Sadly, that isn't the case.

During the season, you'd see Fleury let in a softie and battle back. But in the playoffs, he just unravels to utter stupidity.

It would be nice if these guys can rally around Tommy V and win the series but i wouldn't count on it with DB at the helm. Hell, Vokoun may not even start next game. lol

1st in the East boys and girls! What a hockey team!

Like I said, I've been a big supporter and defended his play but there is NO excuse for his play in the playoffs.

He's also a real athlete, playing in a real pro league, making real good money to make the saves he isn't. His GM traded real future assets to bring in guys to help us win the Cup, and he's the main reason this series is tied (I mean that in both a optimistic and pessimistic way)
