I just took a quick look at the NYR board to see what they were saying. It is funny to see most of their board whining about the officiating, and calling the Pens divers. It's like the majority of that fan base feels the need to take after their whining, crying, little ***** of a coach.
how could you not be embarassed having this joke coach your team
It's fun that we can still laugh like this in the face of such a complete and utter ****storm of injuries.

When you have to go from every play going though you to playing off Malkin it really upsets chemistry.
Iggy isn't the problem though. The Pens play at a pace that 85% of the league can't keep up with.
To be honest its what makes them good but also why they play such a dumbed down game. There's no poise and its all about getting garbage shots on net while playing a glorified game of dump and chase.
Its going to take almost the rest of the season for the new players to get used to the system and pace. Then the Pens have to get used to Sid, Martin and Letang in the line up again. I did like Morrows game tonight so maybe that settling time will be shorter than I expect.
+++ Huge pluses to MAF, JJ and Cookie. Its nice to see Cooke bring out the beast when he has to. Not sure if they showed why he went after the Rangers bench but Nash gave him a whack.
I was happy to see him give a slap to The Queen too. Usually Henke only looks up to stare down his defense after goals.
I thought Neal said, "Jesus, this had to be the only way Dan would get two RWer off of Malkin's line. Why did it have to be me? Why now? Also, I'd like to say a few words on imminent domain. Four score and 7 years ago. God, my hair looks good."
