I believe Erin could tell you whatever you want to know about him. She sort of knows him since they both attended St. Cloud St.

I'm a big Ryan Malone fan, I have been since he made the team in 03-04. I even bought a Ryan Malone jersey mid way through his rookie year, I was probably one of the few people in New Jersey that had one at the time, yes I'm quite proud about that 8)

I don't why so many people want to get rid of him, he has a lot of potential with some good conditioning...nevermind I'm not gonna get into that here...he's good, he's in a sophomore slump...*resisting typing a few pages of explanation*

I get the sophmore slump idea... That means you are not putting up the numbers... however, for stretches it looked more like he was not puttin up the effort. THAT's where the issue was born. He seems to be finishing the season well though, so he is basically starting to redeem himself. I would not have been upset, at all, had they traded him... but I am not upset that they kept him either. Re-evaluate him after two months next year and go with that...

We (Eric and I) are too. I'd hate to see the Pens do something stupid and get rid of him.

As for the jersey, Eric had one too in Malone's first year.

Yeah, I know Ryan. We went to school together and I still hear from him every now and then. I more so see him in the summer when he comes back for hockey camps. What do you want to know?

If you saw the game tonight, you'd have seen the difference in Malone's effort. Crosby's goal can be directly attributed to Malone. He won the battle along the boards and kept the puck down low.
And the SOG he had at the end of the game. He dove into the slot to get the shot off. The last 20 games or so, you can see Malone is leaving everything he has on the ice.

On the 'old board' I posed the question "Who might the next marcus naslund be?"

I still think It's Ryan Malone.

One sub-par year and everyone wants to crucify him.

If Malone actually showed up for the first 40 games he would have much better numbers. Thankfully he wasn't traded.

Malone is not going to be a star...but he is going to be a solid guy that the Pens can expect 20-25 goals per year from. And there is nothing wrong with that. I see him as a solid third liner and a good penalty killer that can fill-in on the second line if there is an injury.

And that third line is *still* growing :-)

Thing is, you may be right, but Naslund just flat-out never got an extended chance to show what he could do. There was never a question about his effort level the way there has been with Malone.

Ryan Malone is way to slow for today's game ! He is a good 3rd liner, but tha's about it. Personally, I don't like him too much.

Whaaat? Is thst why Vancouver decided not to tender him and told him to go home? After they let him into camp on a try-out, Naslund finally got it.

They didn't tender him and told him to go home because they thought he was lazy? That's news to me.

Nope, Pitts is right. When Naslund's contract was up with Vancouver after getting traded there, they did not resign him. He was UFA and could have gone anywhere. He ended up going back to Vancouver at or near the league minimum. At that point, a light went on and Naslund "got it." The rest is history.

People (not you) like to get on Patrick for the Naslund deal and some of that is deserved, but ANYONE could have signed Naslund. No one wanted him, save for Vancouver, but only on their terms.

It's amazing how many times this has to be brought up again and again. You would think that people would finally grasp the concept after a while...

It was meant as a joke. See the insiders guide:

- Quite a few LGP regulars came from various mysterious other Penguins message boards. Once you get accustomed to LGP, you'll learn there are no other boards.
