This team turns over the puck so much, it's ridiculous. What's with this roster? Apparently they only show up and play with some fire against division rivals.

To me.. the turnovers are a combination of us not stopping/starting and not supporting the puck. In '09, we were 5-6 feet away from the pass. Now we are trying to make huge stretch passes 24/7. Support the ****ing puck and for crying out loud STOP AND START.

There isn't a player on this team other than 87 that deserves to see the ice in the third with their effort so far.
Totally disagree, sir!

Tangradi and Despres were held accountable damn it!

Not blaming this on the D. It's the forwards with give away after give away after give away.

The cup finals teams were badass because the forwards were such pimps defensively. Now they're ****ing cherry pickers and clearly "above" playing crushing defense.

I think we're witnessing what will prove to be a steep and rapid decline of Chris Kunitz's hockey skills.

If we hadn't waived Brian Strait we'd be winning this game 4-1!!!

I don't understand why we can't just try out Bennett? IF he doesn't work, send him down. Its pretty simple logic.

And DESPRES? ****ING BYLSMA IS SCREWING HIM UP.

I know Bylsma had that amazing start to his coaching career. But how long does this have to go on before we consider replacing him?

That was brutal coverage in front of the net by Lovejoy.

Why the hell is he playing over Despres?

Hey there's a novel idea. I wonder where I heard that before.

Agreed. It's early, but this team isn't winning anything as presently constructed. Soft, porous defense, and the vaunted pens cycling game has completely disappeared.

Pavelec has a couple of superb stops in the second period also though.

But the really bad thing is that we are just not playing structured hockey at any end of the rink. We are about individual efforts and offense off the rush. We appear what we appeared most of last season unless Malkin's line was in God-mode: a poorly coached team.

that's almost as bad as his Hobey Baker comment. he clearly has no idea how to judge talent.

Same players, same coaches. Why would it be different? They couldn't play defense to start last season and they couldn't play it to end it. Why would it suddenly be good?

Did Bylsma not know he's allowed to pull the goalie w/ 1.9 seconds left and a faceoff in their zone?

Hey, remember the last time a Pen threw a big hit? Yeah me neither.

This team is playing eerily similar to the end of last year. Not suprising I guess since our only upgrade was Glass for Asham. Nice offseason Ray.

Yea none of this is surprising.
Same defense core as last year minus Z.

This team is a top six winger and 2 solid defensemen(pp guy/shutdown guy) away. Also, maybe a new coach.
