Malone

Postby no name on Wed Dec 24, 2008 11:53 am

Did you get the feeling Malone wished he was back in the burgh? But with 31.5 million in his bank i am sure he will get along without us.

I really think his presence is missed in the locker room and on the ice. We had that prototypical power forward most teams covet and now its gone. I know we couldn;t compete with the other teams for him, but it would of been nice if Hossa didn;t string us along for so long. That if we knew we were out of the Hossa sweepstakes we could of made some kind of offer to him. You never know if he would of signed with us. Granted i don;t think he is worth what he was hired for. But i remember the Sykora Malkin malone line being dominating in some games.

I don't think he wishes he was in Pittsburgh as much as he wishes he was on a competitive team.

Best part of the night by far was Scuds putting him on the ice though.

I've said it in other threads. I think they miss Malone more than any other player right now. He did all of the little things that often did not show up on the scoreboard but go a long way towards being a winning team.

How many times would he just make a subtle shift in position to alter a defensemans path to open up a lane or stand in front of the goalie or make a big hit or stick up for his teammates. He played in all situations, was a leader.

I didn't think he was worth what he was offered from Tampa but the more I think about it, I think he is.

I don't see anybody doing it those things on the Pens right now and they need it. Sometimes you have to look beyond Goals and Assists to see a players worth.

Staal can't fill Malones shoes on the powerplay. malone was that hugh body and had the strenght to stay infront of the net.

Although Staal has looked good 5 on 5 this year and that Goligoski goal was the first time i seen us score from the point with Staal setting the screen. He needs to do that more.

He has clearly moved on, but i think some part of him still wishes that he was a Penguin.

I got the impression from the pregame interview that he was being a little bit whiny about how "the team made it clear that I wasn't in their future plans". Yeah, it's because you wanted too much damned money for being a middle of the road kind of player.
