Dan Bylsma said that Despres played one of his best, if not his best game of the season in Montreal, I think it might be the person doing the Game Day on the Penguins website making a mistake.

There is no reason to sit Despres in the press box, ever again I want to add.

Nah, I don't want Malkin going all Alpha on Bennett for not getting him the puck to him fast enough at this point in his career.

I wasn't the one who said that Malkin is THE guy who doesn't fit Bylsma's 'grind, grind, grind'. I wasn't the one who wrote ie (THAT IS) instead of eg (FOR EXAMPLE).

I'm just trying to understand how we can all see something with Bennett and Despres (in the good category) and something with Kennedy and Orpik in the bad category, and the former are the two constantly on the bubble. It doesn't make sense.

It's fairly obvious you want me gone. I'm sure you're not the only one.

Welcome to BylsmaLand.

What are you talking about. You said Bylsma doesn't want people except who he's forced to play who aren't natural fits for 'grind, grind, grind'. I noted, by way of agreement, that it's sad that you chose to say ie (THAT IS) Malkin, instead of eg (FOR EXAMPLE) Malkin, to highlight how the Pens have become what I've called before a Euro free zone except for the one holdout, Malkin. Not sure why you're getting your knickers in a twist over my AGREEING with you.

All seven healthy defensemen were full-go at practice today. Despres and Bortuzzo split time working with Engelland, which has been the case at morning skates for much of the season.

I'd be very surprised if Despres didn't play tonight.

I agree.

Like I mentioned above, Bylsma said Despres play one of his best games against Montreal if not his best game.

I have a hard time believing he will be in the press box tonight.

Yet Tyler Kennedy plays.

Yeah, I can't make any sense of that. Bennett has done more in his 8 games than Tyler Kennedy has in all 22 games this season.

But Bennett finds himself in the press box...

Well, Bylsma played favorites with Lovejoy and always seemed to play him over Bortuzzo, maybe Ray Shero will say "enough is enough" and trade Kennedy, not necessarily, but just to trade him so Bylsma doesn't keep playing him.

I don't think we would bring him back in the offseason, if we kept him until July 1, I don't see Shero qualifying him, so get an asset for him now.

Bylsma has had several "private practices" with TFK over his tenure here to get him into a groove...

If you have to motive a player constantly every year to show up; he obviously doesn't care.

Please, scratch TFK.

I'd take a mid-round pick for TK now if he could get it. I think it's addition by subtraction at this point.

I really have to think that they are looking to move him. There is no other justification for it (other than Bylsma being dumb).

Meanwhile, Shero is planting these little seeds around the league, "I tell ya what, that Kennedy has some hustle. What a good ol' grinder, that Kennedy."

Or maybe I'm just hopelessly optimistic that Bylsma isn't really as dumb as he appears.

If Kennedy plays over Bennett, I'll set the building on fire.

Edited to add that if he does, it better be a signal to Shero to get Kennedy the **** off this team before Bylsma can **** the situation up anymore. I'm so sick of watching the guy play, I can't imagine how his teammates feel.

Bennett, Sutter, Kennedy
Glass, Jeffrey, Adams

Letang - Orpik

Nobody knows what the line-up is yet, just what they were doing at the morning skate. I think it's been confirmed that Fleury is starting, though.

Jeffrey is the 3rd line LW, Vitale 4th line center, Bennett's the healthy scratch.
