Fedotenko is the man, had he signed a multi year deal here, I would have immediately got his jersey.

Just two short years ago, Ruslan Fedotenko had more points than Ryan Malone.

Fedotenko is only 29 years old. Because he won a cup a few years ago, people automatically assume the guy is burned up and out of gas.

Couldn't be further from the truth.

Ryan Malone had 16 goals two years ago. That includes two hat tricks against the islanders.

So, that means, in the 62 other games Ryan Malone played, he registered a whopping 10 goals.

Don't forget, as well, that Ryan Malone was ice cold last year before Malkin got hot.

No hate for Ryan, but really, let's not paint him as some savior because the kid got a busted nose in the playoffs and played through it.

We don't know what Fedotenko can do on a good team at this age because he's been stuck on the Island.

We saw what he could do with a talented squad a few years ago. He was a vital cog in a Stanley Cup run.


SO THERE!

People have this gross misconception about his game. He's not a soft pansy like some people paint him as. He's a guy that will take a shot at you when you aren't looking and then draw a penalty. He also has a penchant for scoring huge goals. He's more than willing to pay the price in front a la a Ryan Malone.

I've been a tampa fan for the past 8 years or so, so i followed him there and then saw him with the isles when they played the pens(pretty much the only time i can make myself watch them). I just love the way he plays. It was no surprise really when he was signed, he is exactly the kind of guy Shero and Therrien like.

Andre Roy has won a Cup. Sidney Crosby has not. Clearly we now know who is a more valuable player.

Why bother reading it when it starts with that garbage? If the title of the book is, "How to Give Yourself a Prostate Exam with a Car battery". I'm simply going to stop reading RIGHT. THERE.

Seriously, grow up. It's not even worth talking to you about anything.

Where's that ignore button?!

You're right. We should resign to the fact that the Penguins are downright crap.

Might as well not even watch. Why sit through the dissapointment?

This team stinks.

I'm switching to the debate team. I heard PHF is the president.

Ignoring facts that people post is the strategy.

fedotenko has a morozov-esque, little kid face. i'm convinced this is why people think he's soft.
