we lost last year because of discipline. our struggles so far this year are because of the same thing. let's not pretend like that doesn't mean anything. there's some rust, sure. sid's not crisp, leatang is bewildered, guys don't know how to play with each other, etc. but look at the mistakes, and the players making them. it's a continuation of a trend. someone needs to stop it.

Lovejoy and Tangradi belong in the AHL


I thought Lovejoy played well and Tangradi was irrelevant - played 4th line.

Matt Cooke - has he dressed yet this year?

Craig Adams - do you do anything 5 on 5 anymore?

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


clearly since i said the pens season was over. Its like some of you dont even read the posts you just immediately assume some people are freaking out and giving up.

I SAID they keep doing the same stupid things esp from top players. How is that not concerning when its not changing? please tell me how its good and stop saying its only 4 games in that is a stupid cop out.

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.

you are right, no players/nhl team has ever lost two games in a row because of sloppy play until the pens did tonight.

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.

Kennedy needs to be on the right side. We had a good chance to score when Malkin fed the puck across the crease but Kennedy and Neal were both on the right post.

Put him with Crosby or back down to the 3rd.

Try Jeffrey with Malkin, can't be any worse than Tangradi and gets players back to their normal positions.

Any guesses on what the Pens attacking zone time has been this season versus Bylsma's first 1.5 seasons? Unlike goals scored or against, this number starts to mean something after 6-10 games. I suspect it is way down versus the teams from 3-4 years ago, and I think speaks to how difficult a team is to play against.

Really, it's not that hard.


If I was a Jets fan, I would have enjoyed the crap out of it. I watch lots of games I don't care about and enjoy them, but I do care about Pens games and can't enjoy pitiful performances like that.


Same here.I don't mind it if the Pens lose if they put up a fight.After the 2-0 lead the Pens went out in a whimper.Just a 40 minute pathetic performance.

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!


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.


I'm not gonna say that I have no concerns whatsoever, because that would be a lie, but based on your posts you are a Debbie Downer and half, man. Let's take it down a notch. These past 2 games weren't pretty, but I don't think any game thus far played by any of the other 29 teams has been that good either. Give it some time. Obviously we don't have a whole lot, but I highly believe that a lot of the boneheaded mistakes will work themselves out. :thumb:

Does anyone think that Bylsma does anything to change losses like this? Nope. He just hopes for the Pens to get a fluke goal on another teams mistake and then he keeps his job. After 3 years in a row having embarrasing playoff loses to Montreal, Tampa Bay and The Flyers we as fans are expected to calm down and let the Pens "Play their game" under this non emotional former 3rd line Ducks player who thinks HE won a Cup in 2009 when it was clearly MT.
The Pens are way too Soff under DB and it shows game after game for years now.

Ok then we have the two best players in the nhl, and are 2-2 with some lackadaisical effort. Our top guys will figure it out. Sid has played like 20 games the past 2 years, he will be fine. They will get on track as it has only been 240 minutes of hockey...

yeah, i thought overall kennedy was ok (better than any alternative, at least), but you could tell that LW thing threw him off. square peg. round hole.

Hardly. No one here has had an abnormal reaction to this loss. It was ugly. And players sucked. And most of us see that and don't like it. But no ones lining up to burn their jerseys. Why be fans if you don't expect the best from your team and see them win?
