Did you think that Shero would give up his favorite toy for good?

Maybe the PK Slewfoot, Ovi incident, and people taking liberties with Malkin have him concerned.

wtf someone better be banged up because there is zero reason to mess with this lineup.

If this isn't being done simply to showcase to other teams that Mac can skate, then I would question the sanity of Shero. If players were trade bait, Mac would be considered a rancid anchovy.

Could have a lot to do with St. Louis' bruising ways. Maybe Shero wants a capable fighter out there should Backes or others get out of hand (which seems to be quite frequently. With Asham out of the lineup, the Penguins aren't exactly the toughest of teams.

Not saying I want MacIntyre in the lineup -- just trying to understand the reasoning.

Perhaps Shero is feeling pressure to do this because Nick Johnson, the kid he waived (goodbye to) to keep MacIntyre around, has been a pretty solid secondary winger for the Wild and just got named to the rookie all-star list. :pop:

So Big Mac gets recalled for a staged fight with Ryan Reaves.

Having MacIntyre in the lineup against TB doesn't prevent Lecavalier punching Malkin, Subban slew footing Kunitz, or Ovechkin charging Michalek. Am I missing something?

Stupid move. He serves zero purpose on this team. Way to jeopardize a good winning streak by effectively dressing 11 forwards. When the defense is healthy Engellend can afford to spend time in the box for fighting AND he can be out there behind Malkin without sacrificing production.

Is Ryan Craig injured? Rather have him fighting or give Veilleux a shot. Both are infinitely wiser choices than Mac.

Jesus people you get to worked up over this. He might not even play. Its better to have a guy like this eating nachos if he is not playing then a prospect who benefits more from playing in WilkesBarre

ALSO. Even if he does play, he gets maybe 2 mins, because mostly likely you will see Malkin getting double shifted with the other 4th line wingers.

Seriosuly, people get way to worked up over this.

We're playing a Hitchcock team. You know there's going to be goonery and clutching/grabbing.

Yeah I thought it was because St. Louis is a goon squad. If liberties are taken I bet Macintyre is glued to the bench regardless.

i guess if shero's going to make one indefensible, stupid, "everyone knew it was an awful choice but you" mistake in his tenure here, he might as well have it go out flaming.

if he had to clear waivers to go down, doesn't he have to clear re-entry waivers to come back up?
