Jets deserved to win this game. They did the same thing Montreal did a couple of years ago. They just collapsed around Pavelec and turned the sloppy play of the Pens against them.

I thoroughly enjoyed that game. Great crowd, a lot of action and a very good, fast pace. So, what are we now, 2-2?? Oh CRAP!!! Trade 'em all!


Who said last Sunday they thought this team was winning the Cup?

Me and I still think that, despite what I witnessed the last two games.

Sound familiar?


We are not at all hard to play against. Teams have to make sure that Crosby, Malkin, & Neal are generally contained, but if you can keep those guys in front of you there's really nothing to worry about. There's plenty of time for things to change, but a team with a good shutdown defensive pairing would murder us in a best-of-seven right now.

The Pens need some scoring from someone other than Neal, Crosby and Malkin. They have the talent but they need better results. They also need Letang to improve drastically in both ends.

no one said we were winning the cup last weekend please stop exaggerating. Its a 48 game season every game is that more important and the fact that we keep doing the same stupid things over and over is not good.

We are 4 games into a shortened season. Who gives a crap that we are 2-2. Enjoy watching the games. If the pens are a sub .500 team after 15 or 20 games, then get worried about things.

Goals aside, Crosby's line looked extra sharp in the first period.
Niskanen really stood out and Vokoun did what he could.

That line shuffling does not please me.

So many freeakin' turnovers.

Lovejoy and Tangradi belong in the AHL

We are 4 games in, the team is 2-2 and currently 2nd in their division. Yes, time to throw in the towel.

It's not THAT we're 2-2, it's WHY we're 2-2.

There's a difference.


Indeed. And it is carry-over from last year as well.

I think people are disappointed in the way the team is playing, not our record. If we win 1-0 and look like trash the W doesn't erase all the faults. This team has holes to fill and looks like a mediocre squad as currently constructed. I'd still feel that way if we were 3-1.

The only adjustments ever made:

1. Bench someone who doesn't matter in the first place (Tangradi)

2. Play Crosby and Malkin together


sounds like my JV coach

I'm so not impressed with this team in these first four games. Vokoun having a solid game tonight is the only reason it was even close.

Why is it that every team we play seems faster and more aggressive? Tangradi is the least of our issues. The game plan seems dated and predictable.

You can't have this type of puck management and win in the NHL. Starting to think Bylsma's system makes it very hard sometimes to find open guys and forces players to make bad plays with the puck. Dudes needs to start getting benched for a few shifts if they conintue with the bad puck play. And yes, that includes Sid, Geno, and Neal.

If we don't see him scratched next game, Bortuzzo in....then DB needs his head examined.


So... you want to go with 7 D next game then?

Jeffrey is the only spare forward they have, and there's currently no room to call anyone up.

Not sure how anyone can not be upset over the sloppy play the last two games regardless of the outcome. Players at this level should not be making simple breakout pass turnovers like we are seeing. Same with bad drop passes especially to players you have 60+ games with.
