I agree that Josefson played much better than Gio, and deserves a spot on this roster, but Gionta has major chemistry with Carter and Bernier. While, it might not be fair to Josefson, Pete Deboer is looking to win with a team of player who have hardly played together. Having at least one familiar line is more important to Pete than playing Josefson in a fourth line role.

The funny thing is Josefson indisputably outplayed Lokti and Gio. So that's why I'm more bothered by that.

I can understand wanting to go with reliability. So fine Pete, I'll defer to you this game.

The Fayne situations is really interesting. I think there has to be something we're missing (maybe he's a bad practice player?).

So what you're saying is nothing else but.... "common sense"? Colour me shocked to see such a thing on HF

Most people don't assume DeBoer's going with a straight rotation because everyone knows he has his 'pets'.

Well (though I'm not a believer) I can understand the desire to keep some sort of continuity here.

I don't like it but it's game 1.

It's a 82 game season and he can't start everyone at the same time. Gionta and Harrold being in our lineup for game #1 of #82 doesn't bother me one bit.

If the players who are healthy scratches today continue to ride the pine by game #15, then I'll start to rant about how #28 is sucking up the joint (again) and should be replaced by Fayne.

Until then, whatever.

In a world where Pete is the Head Coach and we're not, I guess.

If that is the case I can live with it. See how they perform before getting really annoyed. So for those of us wanting Fayne Train tonight.



Anyway OPENING NIGHT!!!!!

It's Game 1 guys, no worries. Long season ahead, and I think that Harrold and Gio's play will eventually thrust Fayne and Josefson back into the lineup. At least, I hope.

Sure hope we see Josefson in the line up for tomorrow night.

Regardless, I'm ****ing pumped. My supervisor has been a fan of the Pens since the club began in the late 60s. He swears it's going to be 3-1 Devils. It's pretty hilarious how little faith he has in his team when we play them.


LGD!

Nope.

I'm saying that no matter what we shout/scream/****** about, the final decision(no matter how idiotic) comes down to one person. And that person isn't posting here on HFBOARDS right now.

That's a solid analysis right there. I was under the impression that the more post we made about a certain subject, that it would get forwarded immediately to Pete and Lou's desktop.

Once again, HF lied to me.

Funny thing is....if I left out the HFBOARDS sentence, you probably wouldn't have responded at all.


And besides, it's true what I said. Pete is the man who makes these decisions and at times they are mind-boggling, to say the least. But we can't do anything about them 'cause we are just fans and he's the Head Coach.

I didnt scream, *****, or question pete so what are ya talkin about? I responded to someone saying Gio should potentially be in over Lokti. That's dumb to me. I'm allowed to have that opinion.

I emailed Rich Chere and Josh Yohe. They pointed me in the right direction. The Pens board was utterly worthless minus one or two people trying to help.

They're too busy jumping on the "hot Pittsburgh team of the week" bandwagon
