the team is getting bigger, hopefully we'll be much bigger going into next season.
Two more big forwards with speed and one more mean d-man and this team will be playing much better

Our PK is just amazing, it keeps getting better and now we've become an offensive threat 4 on 5. LOL. Why can't we be as good on the PP.

Not that I want players to get concussions but I just don't like the guy.

We're two. What I like about him is that he knows when to dump, when to make a pass, when to shoot, when to slow the play...very nice to see him play. Promising future for Louis, please dont waste that player by playing him 4 minutes on a 4th line.

I didn't think Emelin had Markov potential but the more I watch him, the more I think he can become Markov 2.0 with a little bit less offensive skill but more physical.

I like those D pairings for penalty kill.
Gorges Gill
Emelin Subban

The second pairing can switch to offense for a SH goal chances. We know how good Gorges Gill can be at PK.

Bang on. Almost every play is the right one.

No worries Gomez has that spot nailed down. LL has almost doubled him in ice time tonight.

Louis!

I used to think I liked Kris Letang. Dude's such a baby, if they gave out gold medals for complaining, he'd of won a load by now. I've watched about four or five Penguin games in the last month and he's always following the refs around at breaks.

When Markov first broke in he could barely speak English the same as Emelin. I wonder how good Emelin can become once he can communicate with his team mates.

Does hoping someone skates over Letang's hair count as wishing for injury?

Another good reason to hopefully have BOTH Andrei's in the lineup next season.

I agree, he's having a pretty good year for a guy that had to adapt to a north-american sized ice in his first NHL rookie year and doesn't speak a word of English. His development is good, one of the very few positive points this season.

Also, Louis Leblanc = NHL ready. Don't send him back to Hamilton, that would be a huge mistake.

Keep in mind he is playing on Plekanec's wing both ES and PK.
