The Pens have always been able to outsnipe every other team in the league...this year is nothing new.
They're only problem is D and Fleury who has some kind of playoff meltdown the last few years. If it wasn't for their D and goaltending I'd say they were the Eastern Conference favorites for reaching the Cup finals over the Bruins.
Uhh, Crosby had 120 points. Jagr and Thornton had around 125, but I think I know what you mean.

Besides Kane, there's nobody close and that's what makes it impressive. Scoring is down from 2005-2007 by quite a bit.

Now, I bet half of this ****ing forum agrees.
Callahan is a 50 point scorer on an elite team. Moulson is a 60-70 point scorer on 2 very bad teams. Basically same age. Look at the numbers.

He's neutered, eviscerated, and deconstructed everything I liked about the New York Rangers. There's no hard work, there's no "Us Against the World" attitiude. There's no accountability, or players who look like they're giving every drop of sweat and blood they have because they know if they give anything less they WILL NOT PLAY.

And yet, that's not even the worst of what he's done. His crackhead defensive system has sabotaged what was touted as one of the best D corps in the entire league, but has managed to put a crack in the confidence in what is not only our franchise player, but one of the best goaltenders in the world; a potential hall of famer.

But he keeps his head down. He coddles his stars. He gives bland interviews. He gets forgotten. He makes sure he's not seen as the X factor.

But our powerplay scores every now and then, so good for him.

If we're not winning games, who gives a ****.

Torts wasnt teh right coach for them either. Its funny the people who are kissing his ass now are probably the ones caling for his head last year

I wish players would be penalized financially for not producing as expected.

People never include that because it goes against their argument

I think my favorite thing is the people who act like goalie coaches and after every goal against say stuff like his positioning was off to try and sound smarter as if no one here can figure out its completely bs.

Nope, it's still idiotic. Moulson hits, PKs, leads by example, blocks boatloads of shots and has wheels? Since when? He does none of those things. The knock on him is that he literally ONLY scores and only from in close. it's a post that shows no knowledge of the players at all.

Let's ignore that.

Because "OMGGGG pads!!!" Is a better argument.

Yeah, the CBA has something to say about that.
