Want to reiterate that every single decent play in this game by a Penguin forward has been made by DJ.

At this point, I'm willing to say ******* it and let Guerin coach the damned team.

So how about Nielsen cruising through the crease with no one looking at him or within 4 feet of him after Grabner's chance?

Nice to see Sid get knocked on his ass by Carkner. I'm suprised one of the Pens didn't pat him on his ass and say 'nice hit'.

Yeah Jeffrey and Despres have been the only bright spots in this putrid effort. Probably because they haven't been with Dan Bylsma long enough to get infected with whatever the hell is causing the rest of the team to play this way

So if Bylsma shoots Tangradi - the big dog- would the new Pittsburgh Penguins Ice Hockey motto be, "put those *****es down?

This is going to sound crazy homerish, but how awesome would it be to see Disco Dan and his entire staff get the axe and get replaced by

Head Coach: Ron Francis
Assistant Coach: Bill Guerin
Assistant Coach: Paul Coffey

Ian, I don't blame ya dude. I was just laughing at how pathetic this team looks. It's driven you to HF.

I'm assuming your with other members of the media right now, whats the current attitude towards the team/disco at the moment?

I feel like rob rossi has his fingers stuck in a chinese finger trap. Not real sure why.

And another coaching gripe that often gets overlooked... Bylsma and his staff have looked like crap ever since Fitzgerald left

If this team keeps playing like this, with the personnel it has, (coaching staff and players)I can see Malkin rethinking whether or not he wants to resign here. Then again, that might be a good thing.

someone mentioned it earlier, but this Pens team REALLY doesn't deserve Crosby. i honestly wouldn't be surprised if he were starting to feel an ounce of regret about his long contract. it's not even because they're losing. it's because they are completely gutless and just have no intention of taking a single game seriously.

Just no urgency whatsoever.

Frustrating to watch.

To get a good look at Despres looking competent before Disco Dan ruins him?
