Get real! We fire Therrien and replace him with Bob Errey, having Edzo and Steigerwald as his assistants. Edzo will focus on the defense, while Steigerwald will construct a deadly powerplay.

The cup is coming back to the 'burgh.

Concern.

Even though it has worked against some good teams like the Wings and Flyers, this is going to come back and bite us in the ass if we don't start playing more games like the one we played last night.

It wouldn't sting so bad if it weren't true.

Getting friends is easy. Quality friends are harder to find.

I understand some of the criticizm, and there are areas the Pens need to improve in, but overall, what team is perfect? There are none. You can look at every team and point out flaws.

The Pens are winning. To suggest that MT should be fired is a complete joke. Whoever wrote that on the other board is a joke. This team has finished with over 100 pts the last two seasons and are on pace to do it again. We have a division title, a conference title, and are winning this year with our two top offensive Dmen and starting goalie out of the lineup. We won last year despite our starting goalie and captain being out of the lineup for an extended period of time. So you can't say the players talents cover up coaching mistakes, because the coaching is still winning w/o the talent for long periods of time.

He has the team all on the same page. He has the top two scoring leaders in the league, even though they are playing within the system, so no one is being held back.

The PP needs to improve. That is my only gripe.
