Way to make Ottawa look like the 1987 Oilers tonight. Injuries or not, this was a train wreck. Don't see it getting better anytime soon either.

yeah, he'll never have a 20 goal, 40 point season unless hes was on the 3rd line.


Not sure what you're getting at. That's not what I said at all.

Pens will be held hostage by Crosby's $8.7 million dollar contract until he is officially declared out for the season. And that will be the case going forward as well, every time he is out for an extended period of time.

My point was that he scored 45 points last year, playing primarily on anything but the 3rd line. Not what I would consider getting overexposed.

No need to jump off the bridge...

WAYYYY too much overreacting here. It's December. Season doesn't end for another 4 months.

Yep. With the watered-down lineup I expect them to lose every single game, no matter who the opponent is. When healthier I expect them to win every game they play.

This team just needs to get healthy. Until then, we are all going to need to wash our eyeballs from time to time watching this crap.

Sure, he got his points when Malkin and Crosby were out. He got a ton of minutes and a ton of power play time. He can get streaky and pile on points. However, over a long stretch of time, he's not an ideal top-6 player. I feel the same way about Dupuis, really. However, Dupuis is a better overall player and he has crazy chemistry with Crosby.

Their defense kept them in so many games last year with all their injuries. This year their ballyhooed trio of top flight d-men have been pretty average. If anything, Niskanen and Engelland have been pleasant surprises. Tough to win that way however.

Can Kunitz just stop trying to score goals? Most disallowed goals ever.

I never like complaining about injuries but seriously this is almost all about injuries. This team simply cannot win a lot of games with this lineup, especially on defense. This league is just too balanced now. Picard doesn't belong in the NHL and you have several other players playing in roles they aren't suited for and are playing too many minutes. It is just not surprising to me that this team is starting to really struggle.
