Vitale over Adams? Pffft. Like oh sure, he went to Harvard.

Intangibles.... leadership.... false stats.... It's Bylsma, Adams is him, he is Adams. It's not justifiable.

But, if you will indulge my offering some decorative tips, might I suggest white padded walls for your Pens viewing room.
The leprechaun tells me to burn any white padded walls, puce is okay, though.

Kunitz and Neal are NOT on the ice for the Penguins' pregame warmups for people asking for fantasy purposes, but are on the ice for Penguins fans

Vitale and Goc will move on to better contracts with teams who will give them a chance to fully utilize their abilities in roles that they would never get here because of Pyatt, Glass, Adams, Sutter.

So Grove just said on pre-game that Goc was seen centering the third line today with Sutter on the 4th.

Although I won't get my hopes up considering any line with one of Adams, Pyatt and Glass on it is a 4th line.

Would that be a promotion of a demotion?

real-world promotion, Bylsma-world demotion (he who plays with Glass and Adams wins)

It really is tough to tell. One would think Glass and Gibbons are better than Pyatt and Adams. But DB is DB. So who knows.

They are both 4th lines in reality anyway, so it's a lateral move.

It could have been worse, such low standards at play here. Replace Glass with Megna and Adams with Engelland.

Poor Niskanen... even Bylsma knows who needs a babysitter now, it's not Niskanen or Maatta.

Poor Megna, but that's to be expected. Better than I had feared, worse than I had hoped.

Would it kill DB to sit Adams or Glass for one friggin game now and again? Megna would be so much better on that 3rd line LW or 4th line RW.
