A guy like that will get this team back to the basics, and you sure as **** won't have to worry about seeing the team outcoached.

Theoretically they do some stuff with a centre drive and/or a chip and chase retrieval, but that's but pretty much abandoned for MOAR STRETCH PAZZING!

Mixture of that as well.

Well... that may happen if things don't turn around and we flame out early again.

In the first period i'd agree, but after that he was lost, which is weird for him.

Which is horrifying. Kunitz has killed momentum on that line the past few games.

It's both.

The Pens built their system around small, puck moving defensemen, and yet they can't get a clean break into the offensive zone. So frustrating to watch.....

Malkin was pretty good other than the stupid penalty and being unable to beat Pavelec

It's the stretch, it's the drop, it's the no look and it's the east/west.

They're a turnover machine and do it in many different ways.

You know, I think I read Degen post this. Like Malkin's second or third game for him, Maurice benched him for a period because he didn't like how he was playing defense.

Eh, whatever, Shero won't do jack ****.

Exactly, the point is we should not seriously expect any more from this team or organization than we have witnessed since the Cup season--and that's disappointing.

I'm not calling for Bylsma's head yet and 2-2 looks nice on paper, but when you look at what they've done on the ice, I do have to wonder why we continue to feel deja vu. Some of the same habits that have gotten them into trouble going back a few seasons are still popping up.

Also tells me all Pens fans on the forums are virgins who live with their parents. Surprised i've not made him cry by now tbh, i'm brutally blunt against him on my feelings.

I thought Vokoun played great considering the defence in front of him.

But not surprising.

IMO, you can't **** around in a 48 game season.

It's like we're right back to the same old ****.

BTW, I'm reviewing the new CBA. I can't find the clause about how the Penguins will be assessed a penalty for providing puck support and using five foot passes on the breakout, but I'll post it here when I do find it.
