Milbury and the telestrator was great TV. The real cause of the lockout was him busting the first 3, using his shoe instead of the pen.

One main thing I want to see is stops/starts by our players. Too many loops. Stop and start.

Bennett needs to get here asap and bump dupuis down. Hustle is nice, but if sid isn't in beast mode, its just another third line.

For as much as this board is panicking... At least we're not the Kings.

He had his issues. But I thought a lot of the defensive regression was system based last year as much as regression by any of the players. Martin I include in that.

Just for the record, my junk is bigger than alla yinz. I just wanted to put that out there. You know, as a matter of public knowledge. Because someday, someone JUST might need to know about it.

Agreed, and that will come once the players are back to mid-season form.


And yeah...the sloppiness is to be expected. The Kings (especially Jonathan Quick) just look lost today.

Can you imagine the panic if we were actually losing this game?

How about putting Glass on Sid's wing? He doesn't have the offensive skill but he will clear a path for him.

Who is panicking?

Up a goal on Philly in Philly going into the third?

Only gave up one goal after how we fell apart defensively last season there in the playoffs?

The only ones panicking would be ones who have zero perspective on reality.

Dupuis has been great. Kunitz on the other hand...

Jaded, you just referenced 3/4 of this board in your last sentence.

Agreed whole-heartidly. Too many players being asked to play out of their comfort zone led to only the offensive-slanted guys (and Engelland, oddly) being even half-decent.

Also Martin was pretty damn good for about a 2 month stretch of the season while he was still getting shat on, before he (and everyone else) stopped playing defense down the stretch and in the playoffs.

Martin had a bad year, no doubt, it just still bugs me that he got all of the derision while Orpik and Michalek got so little despite being just as bad.

Dupuiy might be great in his style of play, but he's not a scorer and can't help Sid.
