I say remove the bald-headed turd. Edit: What is the worst that could happen? They score even less?

Anybody who thinks putting the leagues top scorer on the left point so he can run the back-door play ala the great Ryan Whitney deserves to be fire, hired, and then immediately fired again.

100% agree. This Power play looked awesome last year running through Malkin now we are making him our third option on the left wing boards. Really well thought out. I love Crosby as a player, but he should be down low on the goal line or off to the right of the goalie because he can't score from where he is at, so teams take away the pass. It's useless.

I don't care if he's fired or not, he should just be taken off the PP. Or just have the players start doing exactly the opposite of what he says. They need to be a dangerous team on the PP and right now they are just lost. I thought it was at least getting better, even though they still could not score, the last few weeks, but today was horrible.

I would argue that Malkin is the last option on the PP right now, or at least next to last after Kunitz.

The only reason Malkin isn't playing the right wing boards is because it's thought to be "Sid's postion." So our team is made less effective by our coaching staff just to make Sid happy. Malkin is a much better option there than Sid is.

Is yeo still coaching the bowel play? Someone said he wasn't. But the PP looks too crappy for him not to still be there.

He's definitely still the PP guy. The design has Yeo written all over it.

There are so many options right now regarding our power play. Personally, I think it might be a good thing to split Sid and Geno, but what the ---- do I know.

I do believe Shero has been quoted as saying a coach must be judged on wins and losses. If results matter and I would hope they do, THERE IS NO...NO...NO JUSTIFICATION IN MIKE YEO RETAINING HIS JOB!

He has the top two scorers in the league and arguably the best offensive blueliner and the team is 24th out of 30 teams. That is fact. Right now he has Malkin, Crosby, Guerin, Kunitz and Sykora to send out with Gonchar and Letang and the PP is as ineffective as it has ever been.

We had two and a half minutes of PP after Talbot was high sticked to put this game away. We didn't and we lost. Then again, we've lost many games and third period leads for that matter on nights when our power play could have put it away. If our PP was even 10th in the league, we would not be struggling to make the playoffs.

IF this team fails to make the playoffs this year, it's because our power play has been a complete failure ALL SEASON LONG.......period.

It is an absolute disgrace that Mike Yeo is still employed by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

This guy SUCKS. Letang and Gonchar should be the point men and Malkin should play the right wall, Crosby should move from the left and behind the net and support Malkin on the right corner. Then you stick Guerin in front of the net.

THAT'S IT. It's so SIMPLE. Yeo sucks, just fire him!

And Bylsma's retarded too, he's the head coach, he should realize this. It's so obvious that Malkin shouldn't play the point, and Kunitz would be good in front of the net if we didn't have Guerin. But we got Guerin now, so Kunitz should help out the 2nd unit. And you can rotate Guerin and Sykora since Petr Gunn has more power play goals than anyone on the team.

1. Amen.

2. Having someone with no sense of offensive play and no history of offensive related accomplishment coach a powerplay . . . well, should we be so surprised that it underachieves?

Defense isn't looking so hot right now, either.

Ok, Shortbird lets no over exaggerate here. The defense is is a driving force that is helping the Pens through their 7 game Winning Streak. The only weakness of this team, and its a big one, is the inability to capitalize on Powerplay chances. Opposing teams see this and play Ultra Agressive because they know if the Penguins are on the Powerplay they have a minimal chance of converting.

You are correct. Lot of running around today in their end was all I meant.

I almost voted no because the time to fire him was last year but at least should have been when MT and Savard went.

It makes absoltely no sense to keep this turd on the coaching staff. I would trust anyone who ever made a post here on LGP to be an assistant over Mike Yeo.

PP sucked with MT, PP sucks with DB, only common thread.....Mike Yeo was/is in charge of the PP. Using Malkin on the LP is like Big Ben throwing left handed.

I feel like I am insane when I see him behind the bench. If they wind up losing a playoff series in 6 or 7 gamea after going 3 for 29 on the PP I am going to lose it. And it is frightening that this is a distinct possibility.

At this point, I have to start to wonder about IHCDB's sanity as well. Does Yeo have nudies of all of these guys or something. I wish I would be so incompetent at my job and still retain it. I mean what does this guy have to do to get fired? No really, how bad does the PP have to be before they replace him?

I realize that this is not a popular sentiment...

...but one has to assume that there's more to this than we the fans understand. They had the opportunity to fire Mike Yeo, but they didn't. That had to be for a reason.

And no, the reason is not "we're smarter than they are".

I certainly don't see a reason to keep him.

If his only contribution to the team is special teams play, then he should be fired. I'm surprised he wasn't replaced after the firing of MT.

The PK has been pretty good which is a plus for him, but the powerplay has been horrid this year. A good deal of blame is on the players too, but it's amazing that this is the same guy who coached that amazing powerplay from last year. He has obviously made zero adjustments with the talent this team has.

I actually thought about voting "No," with the reason being it was time to fire him three months ago.

Couldn't bring myself to do it, though.

Is the answer, "blackmail" or "compromising photos"?
