I just want to know which excuses he will make for playing Iginla on LW.

since I was responding to someone else, I'm not saying it about you, but you're guilty of it, too. For some reason we all want to project our hopes and dreams and kittens onto Evgeni Malkin.

He'll leave if they don't fire Bylsma! (even though he's always said how much he loves Dan)

He won't stand for this! (Even though he's always said he loves it here, loves his teammates, letc...)

He shows it on the ice!!! (Is this some sort of excuse for when he plays poorly? Malkin never has a bad shift, unless the weight of the organization holds him down?)

He might stay, but he doesn't really want to! (as he signs an 8-year extension)


Evgeni Malkin has become Bill Brasky to some of you. He's a larger-than-life figure that has the most magnanimous spirit and is the greatest player to ever step on the ice and when something doesn't go right for him it's someone/something else's fault.

I dunno, I just think he's human, and i'm going to view him as such

I've called RS overrated for a long time. Some nice trades and all, but man oh man are you EVER insulated by bad moves, in the regular season at least, when you're icing the two best talents in the world.

****ing DISGUSTED by this organization right now.
Yep. The sexy trades blinded me, and I'm sure many others, but then you look a little closer and you see lots of questionable, if not stupid moves.

annnnd... he didn't answer the question. Just that the process is "on-going". More inability to admit a flaw.

That's ********. Seriously. I'm so ****ing tired of reading some of this ****. He's about to sign for 8 years. He's said the same things as Sid.

HE FEELS THE SAME WAY. His play on the ice is indicative of nothing but his play on the ice.
Sorry -- poorly worded. I was trying to say that I don't think he's playing up to his full potential (hence, the on-ice stuff), but that he seems to be fine with that.

My question until next playoffs will be "What exactly was the risk of trying a new coaching staff?"

Bylsma looks like he doesn't give a ****, and why should he? He already got his extension.

Really it comes down to hey the PP worked reg season and it didn't post season. It was not getting to our game. Not the other teams proper adjustments.

Once a team gameplans for the Pens and executes it they are dead in the water.

Correct answer on Mario approval: "I've got compromising pictures / video."

No no no. The PP worked through HALF OF THE PLAYOFFS, before they inexplicably CHANGED IT!

It was at like 33% before they just benched Iginla.;SD>gsm,gmsgm

Can't watch this anymore. I feel ill.

The fact that Burkle and Lemieux stopped Shero short and said they wanted Bylsma re-signed is pathetic.

Dan Quinn is the only guy who could have compromising pictures/video of Mario.

Ummm, one point guys .... What if it wasn't Sid who said anything?

What if Malkin and Letang let it be known that they would look elsewhere if Dan was fired?

Would y'all still have all the fire you do right now?

Fact is, no one out there available right now has done MORE than Dan has. I would love him to be more of a tactician on the bench and maybe changing assistants would have helped that. But, if the players vouched for him and they let him down again, THEY are not only putting him in danger, but also themselves.

I don't know, but that would motivate me a little bit to get my **** right for next year.

Not "larger than life" but just as big as Crosby.......I really don't see any problem there.

Even his kid knew he should be fired, and his ego has recovered/been bolstered.

....Dan prepares?

Look, this is clearly all just speculation. I'm just looking for ways to try and wrap my head around the fact that two competitors as seemingly fierce as Sid and Geno would be completely fine with the direction this team is heading in. I just don't understand it.

No no no, because Crosby is condoning Bylsma. He's a ******* who is keeping Dan around. Geno secretly wants him gone, but is just too nice to say anything about it
