Yes, Dupuis, play your way onto the third line. On the other hand, I think Jokinen looked better than Bennett on Malkin's LW.

Good job team, and Bylsma...

I get flak for it but Dupuis' "revival" is an aberration. One of my favorites on the team but a guy like that doesn't just figure things out this late in the game.

Come on, Malkin. Geez. Gotta hit the net there, at least.
Meh, he's been producing pretty well for two years. Playoff effectiveness notwithstanding, I think he'll be around a 50 point pace again this year.

First PP goal of the pre-season for the Hawks.

Yeah. If you try to slow down and body someone up a foot from the boards you're gonna get crushed.

Classic case of the Pens playing down to their opposition. They sure didn't look this bad a few nights ago against Chicago.

What's the point of having a line that doesn't work in the POs, even if it does in the reg season?

Especially when the coach doesn't change the lines in the POs.

Letang might as well just graciously slide the puck over to the nearest defender every time he has it and save himself some effort. If I thought there was actually any effort being put forward, in the first place.

Someone needs to tell DB he can have one of Glass/Adams, not both. And the winner gets to sit in the pressbox.

I know this includes 5 pre-season games but we're going to be 0-9 in our last 9 games if we lose this one. In terms of not having more goals than the other team when the final buzzer goes.

Glass looks exceptionally weak out there. Did he get hepatitis in the offseason?

That "someone" is Shero who gave Adams two more undeserved years on our 4th line this summer.

Simple hockey WINS games. Chicago plays simple hockey. Boston plays simple hockey. The Penguins look like a ****ing joke out there. They try so hard to do ridiculous ****. Just shoot the puck, drive ot the net, and score. It's not THAT hard.

Adams is better, someone just needs to take Glass away, and then tell him all the reasons why.

Nisky should be embarrassed of this preseason. You would think the guy has a new contract and feel comfortable. He's playing for his job and still sucks.

What happened to DB in 2009 where he had great puck support and a team that would float the puck into soft areas and skate north/south?

Sutter w/ Dupers is a match made in heaven.
Right there with you on all counts.

I'm not going to make sweeping criticisms here. Pre-season and all.

But I still feel like I want to slap 95% of the line-up.
