What if Zigomanis can play in the finals?

Postby TeddyBear on Wed May 27, 2009 10:19 pm

Does he play? If so, who sits?

Cool. But any ways....who sits? I think he would be a big factor on faceoff's and last I heard Draper is out right now (he's detroit's best faceoff man) so maybe between Mantis and Sid, the faceoff advantage would go to the Pens

Zigomanis won't play, even if he is available.

I doubt Zigomanis gets in the lineup. Hard to throw someone into the finals after missing several months. But the person who sits would either be Satan or Adams...

He doesn't play unless there are a lot of injuries. Even if he is healthy, he hasn't play a hockey game in how long? No way he is in any condition to skate with the Detroit Red Wings.

I really think if someone were to go, it would be Boucher, assuming they were confident in Gonchar's ability to increase his workload.

Wait... did someone just consider Idoit40fans' answer the most useful in a thread?

If Zigomanis can play, which I doubt he can, I think they should seriously consider it. He was 60+% on faceoffs. That's huge. That can come up very big in key faceoffs late in a game, for example. In fact, it did in the Pens' comeback against Detroit earlier this season. I think you'd have to consider that over dressing seven D. But again, I doubt Zigomanis is even going to be available. He's skating, but there's been no word about him being close to coming back.

Crosby has improved greatly since the beginning of the season as has Staal. Staal seems to be the go to guy right now when holding a lead and Crosby seems to be the go to when they are down. Zigomanis in that position would mean we are probably desperate, which I hope we aren't at any time.

He's probably the 2nd to last guy to play in the finals. Nice try though. :face:

Right. His timing would be way off, and he'd be thrown into the pressure cooker and expected to take key draws in the defensive zone late in games. Not good if you are not in game shape.

Besides, Adams has been great and so has Satan. We won't see Dupuis again let alone Zigomanis.

Ziggy will not play, there is no way he could keep up with his conditioning. It's to late. Sign him back and get him for next year.

How awesome is the depth at the moment?

Dupuis, Sykora and Zigomanis not playing. Who would've guessed that earlier this year?

I really want Ziggo signed for next year though, but with how well the Geno/Sid alternating with Adams and Satan is working at the moment there's no way (barring injury) he's playing in the finals.

5-6 people would have to be injured for Zigomanis to play, if he's healthy. He hasn't played in a hockey game for almost 6 months. And while I appreciate what he brings to the table, he hasn't exactly been missed. He's a 4th line role player.

Pray that we don't need to dress Ziggy. Not that he's bad or that I don't like him (I hope Shero keeps him for next year) but if he's in the lineup it means that any number of awful things are happening to the Pens in the series.

You have completely lost your mind, Teddy.

Can you imagine what kind of threads would get started if we had to wait for 9 days for this series to get started??

What's really crazy is, earlier in the year, Dupuis and Sykora were on the top two lines. :shock:

Who sits?

Likely Sykora, Satan, Minard, Taffe, Dupuis, and Adams would probably sit (due to injury) before Zigo even gets a sniff.

Why have I lost my mind? I didn't suggest HE SHOULD play...all i asked was would he? No reason to get all butt hurt over it, just starting some conversation on a message board...my lord people.

I am actually really digging the 7 D thing we've got going BECAUSE Sid and Geno can double shift on another line. I mean, this means that we have either Sid or Geno on the ice 2/3 of the game. Good luck stopping that!
