Everybody is gonna have all these excuses why NJ won but there a far better team right now. They dominated the pens. There first in the conference right now and there the eastern conf champs from last year. Pens couldn't score any goals on them but neither can anybody else.

You absolutely can not fall behind to that team. They'll trap you to death afterward and make for a really boring, crappy game. Crappy effort.

I thought Hedberg playing better than Vokoun had a lot to do with the loss.

Dear Dan:

Calling a timeout down 2 goals with 8 seconds left will make as much of a difference as taking a dump on your team's bench and scratching your armpits.

we have so much trouble just possessing the puck. No one tries to battle for pucks in the D zone, they let the other team win all the board battles.

stretch pass, dump, chase, stretch pass, dump, chase, repeat forever. sprinkle in a bunch of icings in there.

it looks like no one has any experience getting the puck through the neutral zone. Massive inability to set anything up in the offensive zone, even on a powerplay.

what is the issue here? is it coaching or do our players suck that bad?

I agree. There were a lot of quality chances that Hedberg stopped.

Vokoun gets a pass because his name is not Fleury.

- Dan Bylsma. Nice timeout with 8 seconds left you douchenozzle.

- Malkin. Hey Geno, how bout scoring some goals at some point this year? I don't give a **** if Francois Leroux was on his wing, making 9 mil a year means you're supposed to be good in spite of other players.

- The dead weight on this team. They're all the same. No use calling them out separately. Kennedy, Cooke, Adams, Boychuk. And to a lesser extent Dupuis. They're all worthless.

- Orpik. Hey tough guy, how bout not letting someone set up and do their taxes in front of the goalie every night?

- Vokoun. Didn't think he played well.

+ Nothing

A little bit of both. I hate the stretch passes, but I've also seen Dupuis and Kunitz exchange 5 footers through the neutral zone, and I hate that even more.

There's a ton of "He giveth, and he taketh away" wingers on this team.
