Who do you miss most?

Postby Samsdog on Wed Oct 29, 2008 4:16 pm

OK. For all of you that like to torch other people's threads because you think they're ridiculous, leave now and keep your comments to yourself. This is in no way a commentary on the Penguins play at the moment, nor is it meant to torch the players currently on the roster.

However, just for fun, which player from last year's team that is not on this year's (whether because of trade, free agency, etc.) do you miss most and why? Once again, if you think this is pointless or complaining, just walk away. I'm looking at you, complainers of the '93 Islanders series thread.

For me, it's gotta be Scary Gary just because I miss Gary Roberts facts, WWGRD, and other cult-following activities. Honorable mention to Ruuts just because he is friggin' annoying from the other side.

Have fun. Don't disrespect.

Roberts is not a loss in the regular season being that he was never healthy enough to play in it..

Hossa's loss kills this team in many ways...Crosby/Hossa Malkin/Sykora 2 very good offensive lines... sigh...

I am a failure. I didn't realize that bringing up the past could be so personal and painful. I apologize to all involved.

I'm gonna say Malone, because he did alot of things in the last year and a half that some folks don't notice. Fedotenko is starting to find his way though, and may just be the guy for the job. The problem is, it's hard to do it from the 3rd or 4th line.

In terms of who I miss that is still technically here - that would be Sarge. Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you got........

I think everyone gave him his due last year, but it seems like he may even be more valuable than that year made it seem. He is the cleaner back there, the puck hits his stick and everything just gets more mellow.

Everywhere we are missing him was where I thought we'd miss him. You're right though, I think people are still hesitant to give him credit, and sadly I think its because of that half a bad season he had his first year here.

I do miss Hossa too. I like the extra balance that comes with not having him but I think it could have been achieved with the right management and the right contract from Hoss. Him and Crosby were scary after they finally clicked.

Easy: Fiesta!

I'm a bit ashamed that I don't miss Malone all that much. It was cool to have Ruutu and BGL, but they moved on and so did I. *sob*

I miss Ruutu and the Steel City Line (although I hated that name). Even though he may have left on bad terms, I still wish we had Malone here. Not for the ridiculus price he's being paid, but I still miss him.

I just want to see Sykie and Geno back to doing what they do best, which is impossible right now considering they are seperated. Sykora is just too good of a goalscorer to not play with Crosby/Malkin imo. His talents are being wasted right now playing with Staal. Don't worry I dont want to trade Staal for a bag of pucks, just sayin.

Edit: Apparently MT agrees. Just noticed new lines and I love the Cooke-Malkin-Sykora line. :D

Skill: Hossa, as much as I hate to admit it. Having his talent was great. Comforting mantra in response I say to myself is "but we've avoided having all that money tied into only 3 players..."

Personality: Ruutu. I miss having him around to agitate people with his stick and call them retards.
