Exactly. Adams and Glass will never be a SH threat. It's so ****ing sad. This team used to score tons of shorthanded goals. Now they are just happy to clear it down the ice every once in a while.

Who needs momentum when you've got Gladams blocking shots and running around in their own zone?

I meant it more as a candid camera/punkd type thing. Not as an actual coach.

I actually disagree. If our only options are Bylsma and Torts, I'm keeping Bylsma.

As Fordy said earlier: making me mod is just a stepping stone to me eventually becoming head coach of the Penguins. A vote for me is a vote for sanity. A vote for me is a vote for Sid and Geno on the PK. Despres and Bortuzzo on the ice. Orpik in the press box. Glass and Adams in the AHL.

A vote for me is a vote for change.

Change we can believe in.

I'm Emperor IcedCapp, and I approve of your approval of this message.

Unfortunately I agree. And I'm all for anything that gets Bylsma out of town. Well just about anything apparently.

Dan Bylsma asked "Do you think Sid is trying to do too much?"

Dan Bylsma: "No. The two goals against were special teams goals. I don't think Sid was trying to do too much."




I understand protecting players, but say it as "we have to be more careful as a team."

Yeah, I'm with you guys. The OLD Tortorella, the guy in Tampa, THAT guy is what this team needs. But that guy has left the station and he's not coming back. He's now a bitter, old, twisted *&^%. All Torts preaches is more and more shot-blocking. I shudder to think what he would do with our team. More of the same, I suspect.

It's a garbage team. The pom-pom waivers in the media will blame it on injuries of course, but the problems lie so much deeper. It's tragic what this team has become.

Sid was trying to beat 2-3 guys by himself. That's the Pens strategy. Why would you expect Bylsma to see that as doing too much?

Well, I see the fan base isn't overreacting at all. I only wish I thought it was the beer. And with that, good day, Twitter. #pens #flyers


What a tool. I know it's frowned upon to wish for a truck to hit him, but what about just one of those tiny Fiats?

The stench includes the top.

Make no mistake. In some measure, this team's design and demeanor is based on how Mario wishes the NHL were instead of how the NHL is.

You're not alone.

Otherwise, we are just delaying the inevitable with or without the injuries. It doesn't matter.

I have to admit, part of me was smiling at the way the Sharks played periods 2 and 3 against us the other day.

It's so painful watching another team play exactly how you wish your team would.
