Pens Fan: Update on Lovejoy

Pens fans interested on how Big Ben Lovejoy is doing at his new job. I always thought he was a solid 5-6 D man.

Can anyone provide some updates?

He's been great since coming to Anaheim, become a real solid part of our 7 d-men rotation. Plays a little on the PP and PK, but mostly at ES.

He just seems to do everything that is needed of a 5-6 D-man really, can't ask for more then that.

Looks great as a 5-6. Noone can really ask for more from him.

Pleasant surprise for me. He's actually really good down low, which surprised me. He wasn't great in our last game in Phoenix but other than that he's been good.

I've gotta say, he's proven me wrong. I thought he was a bad #7. But as other said, he's actually holding his own as a 5/6. He started out rough (after a good initial game), but he's really settled in since.

I'm not a huge fan - he started out well but hasn't been as good the past few games. He's a decent #6-7 - nothing more. One thing he has going for him is that he's the only RHS on our blueline.

He's been a great pickup. It's nice to have a third pairing guy who can actually skate for a change.

Overall I think he's been great. Perhaps not the greatest game last time, but for a 5/6 he's a catch imo.

I don't like his offensive instincts... he shoots the puck on the net with no traffic and his slap/wrist shot are very weak and generate few rebounds/scoring chances.

I love his transition game though and he makes very few defensive mistakes. I think he's an ideal #6/7 defenseman and is great luxury in the shortened season... I love how BB is alternating the defense man out for rest.

I think he's a great compliment to Bryan Allen on our 3rd pairing... muscle w/ PMD.

I've actually seen a few quality rebounds... considering his minutes that's more than enough for me. And I'd say the fact that he puts the puck on net is more of an asset than anything... I'll always take a shot on goal over trying to make a cute pass or turning it over.
