The officiating was absolutely horrible. That said, that's not why the Pens lost. If you disagree, that's fine, but I'd suggest you look a little closer at your team.

The two main reasons they lost were their power play was atrocious and the team pulled the opposite of the last game - they showed up for the first two periods, but disappeared in the third.

I still don't understand why Malkin and Crosby did not start the 3rd together. They dominated the 2nd at ES yet MT goes back to puttign Dupuis out there to suck the life from Sid.

I thought the idea at the beginning of the year was to put Staal in front of the net to take Malone's role. I know he was slow going at first but now that he's got some roll in him, he should be out there taking up space on the top unit.

It's pretty sad that I now get a feeling of dread when the Penguins go on the power play. Help.

i wouldnt say Satan is bust at this point, hes just not Hossa so most will never accept him

with that said its clear that Sid does need a young winger that can grow with him (easier said than done)

not gonna say that the refs cost the Pens the game with their platter of FAIL in the last 10 seconds, but in a game of inches, it sure didn't help, neither did the defence.

Caputi and Kennedy may be ready in the next couple years.

7 PP's plus a 1:00 of 5 on 3, that's what cost us the game

I have no problem with role players who show up.

I'll take Cooke scoring 15 key goals over Satan scoring 25 in blow outs.

Dupuis, Satan, Fedotenko and Sykora can all be replaced. Maybe alittle work ethic is what this team needs right now because the "highly skilled" guys have the worst PP in the league on the road.

The refs blew all around. I thought the Sabres got hosed a few times. Looking at how bad the PP is I would have preferred they call nothing then the defense culd haul peple down instead of trying to play patty-cake with them.

the Pens got a lot of calls earlier - if the Pens learn how to hold a lead we dont have this problem- no offense to the poster

It seems most guys gel faster with Geno than Sid. You can create a 30 page thread on why that might be, but that's just how it seems to go.
