The other day on ESPN, they were showing the top 10, and the Penguins game was one of the highlights. Of course it was a game we got blown away in, 7:1 vs. the Rangers.
Anyway, one of the announcers said, QUOTE: "This is possibly the worst defense in NHL history." In my opinion, not an overstatement at all!!! Clearly, the Penguins are horrific on defense; NO SHUTOUTS, and only on 3 accations we gave up 1 goal in 56 games?! How pathatic is that? Every time Fluery gets scored on, he skates to the side in disgust. 3.96 goals against a game and nearly 1.5 goals against on power play per game. HOW COULD YOU NOT BE FRUSTUATED, I WOULD BE TOO.
WOW, by the way, those are close to record breaking numbers there...
What do you think the Pens defense ranks all time? Who could we aquire to make it better for next seasons?
How about Ryan Lennon and Noah Welch, they are a great combo, both have played together since grade school! We keep bringing up Offensive guys, how about some defense boys? That would be nice for a change, EJ !
