Yea you could get a star fwd dman prospect and two firsts for him. I'm surprised the pens haven't done it yet to be honest

If there was ever a time to do it, it was when they still had Staal. Now's not the time.

Bob Cole has absolutely butchered everyone's name tonight. He was supposed to retire after the 2004 World Cup; why in the world is he still commentating? I try to tune him out (watching games on mute sucks), but I end up yelling at my tv when he gets names wrong... I can't help it.

Whenever I think of Bob Cole, I think of this horrible breakdown of a Simmonds fight.

I've been calling for his retirement since 1985. He absolutely stinks, and now he's senile too. Seabrook is amazing, though, since he's playing for both teams.

What? You don't think that was a draw? I'm sure very few of Simmonds' flurry of hard right fists did any long-term cognitive or structural damage, but the wild swings and almost-punches by Crabb had to have stunned Simmonds.

It really wasn't even that bad of a hook, they were battling along the boards at center ice in 2OT and Jagr's stick crossed Malkin's body for a half-second. Not to mention Malkin took a blatant slash at Jagr after he lost the puck... just sayin.

If it led directly to a breakaway, i would understand Pitt being pissed more. But it didn't lead to anything spectacular... just a 2 on 2 (with a Penguin coming into the mix on the backcheck, so really like a 2 on 2.5ish).

What WAS spectacular was Marchard making a perfect pass while he was well-covered, and Bergeron outmaneuvering Orpik -- who was right with him -- to put the puck home.

I understand the overall frustration at the lack consistent refereeing, but to for Pitt to expect that call to be handed to them away from home and in 2OT, when the refs were "letting them play" is being unreasonable.

Just my 2 cents from a Bruins fan . I'm getting a kick out of how many fans who otherwise hate the Bruins LOVING this series simply because of how much more they hate the entitled pansies that are the Penguins!!!

I don't like the King's ability to come back in this one. They needed the sweep at home badly.

Horrible road team, Richards has still not practiced since the Bolland hit, & Penner might be getting a call from Shanny for an elbow to Bolland. That would be another tough blow to that top 6.

Chicago might wrap this up Saturday.

It would be great if both series wrapped up by Sunday and the Finals started on the 12th.

What's everybody's thoughts on this elbow by Penner last night? He's not facing any discipline for this. I'm a little surprised by it. It's the second elbow to the head (Bourque on Conacher) that went unpunished by Shanny this playoffs.

I am not all about throwing the hammer down but I just wish he'd be consistent. If you're gonna try to eliminate headshots, eliminate them in any form they come in!

I don't much care for LA and consider Chicago the lesser of two evils but DO NOT understand why LA played such a bad 3rd period in such a pivotal game?? Yeah Chicago tightened thing up but it seemed to me it was more LA not doing what they could do than Chicago neutralizing them....not sure..just my take.

Yeah I'm not about suspending guys. I actually disagreed with the Gryba and Torres suspensions but I think this at least warrants a phone call or something. Shanny is consistent at making everyone have no clue what is suspension worthy or not.

Yeah that's my thought as well. The playoffs have been great so far but I want the offseason to come now. As soon as the trade window opens it should be interesting.

Most of the Kings look tired and/or broken. Two tough, physical series for the Kings preceded the series against the Hawks. The Hawks had more in their collective tanks in the second half of the game; the Kings looked totally gassed by the tempo of the first 30 minutes.

Yeah they definitely looked gassed. They couldn't win faceoffs, establish a forecheck...I mean they looked no bueno.

Gryba's was a joke, I can see people going crazy over Torres but I don't think it was bad, just a reputation call. Keith however I think deserved it. That's not a hockey play.

I think the actual contact was with Bolland's back. Still looked like he targeted the head though.
