So ... which one of you is 'Bob'?

From today's Shelly Anderson's Penguins Chat

[Comment From Bob]
Are the Penguins really going to make the mistake of trading a 6'4" 205lb defenseman who can skate like the wind, play physical defense, and make a beautiful outlet pass while a career AHLer/7th-man like Engelland gets 20+ minutes a night? Are Bylsma and Shero more interested in winning the stanley cup, or running the team like a family?

so ya, I'm not watching any games this week. I am old and pathetic and there is no chance at all I can stay up to finish a game starting at 10. I struggled with the 8:00 game we had this year.

And what was the brilliant response from the fat tub of lard that is barely aware of her own existence?

They seriously HAVE to trade Despres. No matter how good he may be somewhere else, no matter how dumb of a trade it would be, Despres' value to the Penguins is only what he is able to produce here...and it's clear that Bylsma is never going to let him take a regular shift on a regular basis. Just trade him and turn him into something of value, as right now he's basically an extra body for practice.

Despres trade value has to be getting lower every time he gets benched. Any GM with a brain would point to Despres being scratched and say we aren't even dealing a regular NHLer.

Really though, at this point who ****ing cares what the lineups are? Bylsma could come out of the tunnel twirling his dick in his hand Joe Thornton style and nothing would happen to him.

I don't disagree, but is it ever going to get better under Bylsma?

No it's not. It never will. It never has. Despres has been stuck in this ****ing retarded limbo for 3 seasons now.

two.

If Despres isn't traded this year he will be in the top 4 next year.

I highly doubt that. There is zero evidence that can point to this happening. It's just us all hoping Bylsma has a come to Jesus moment. In the meantime we'll just let the pretty girl step on our ****

Loses to MTL in disappointing fashion
Loses to TBL after going up 3-1
Loses to Flyers in spectacular fashion
Loses to Boston...swept...scoring 2 goals in 4 games

that's fine. I disagree. And even if he's on the 3rd pairing next year, its better than trading him for pennies on the dollar value-wise. And I really think that's what we'd get for him right now.

That's ok, but literally, there's no evidence Shero and Bylsma will let this happen.

Orpik stays, Niskanen stays. Zero change. Book it. The only change will be which prospect we get rid of because we are too afraid to play them for some ungodly reason that makes zero sense.

Well it's been festering for a while now, and hasn't really went away since the summer. I'm sick and tired of the way this team has been run, and absolutely nothing has been done to change it, and it only seems like we are going to perpetuate the problem even more this season.

Oh well. I'm not going around tricking myself into thinking everything is all sunshine and lollipops.

I'm not either. That doesn't mean I think everything is dead puppies and plague-ridden rats either.
