If I hear anything negative, regarding a player, during a broadcast, it is from bob errey.

That said; know a couple of things about Malkin and Neal:
* Both players have said that a secret to their success it neither guys holds back, verbally, on the ice. Also, it is something Neal has discussed with the roving players that have worked in on the left-wing slot – basically, Malkin is direct and to-the-point when it comes to on-ice chatter. LW Eric Tangradi confirmed during training camp that Neal warned him Malkin wouldn’t be shy about pointing out perceived problems. Being able to handle Malkin, who is as demanding of himself as any player I’ve covered, is part of the territory that comes with occupying space with him on the ice. Neal is not a shy player when it comes to speaking his mind either. Hence, he and Malkin can be engaged in a normal conversation, but one that may appear animated. It probably was less animated and more just two guys making sure they were on the same page. I’ve seen that before from Malkin and Neal. Many times.

This is absurd. Even without the awards that's how Malkin has played for the last 4 or 5 years when he tries to force plays and is frustrated

With Kunitz' drop in play, I would like to see TK given a shot with Sid, Kuny dropped to the 3rd line, and Glass given the role they want from Tangradi on Geno's line, one that he did get a chance to play some in yesterday's game. It is clear that Sutter is lost out there and Kuny might be a calming influence for him. Everyone wins.
Gaucho wrote:I'm ok with switching the Koon to Geno's line, but dropping him all the way to the 3rd line to make room for Tanner Glass, who has never at any point in his otherwise commendable career displayed anything resembling a good set of hands seems a bit desperate. I believe our best setup looks something like this:
14/Mystery Winger - 87 - 9
14/Mystery Winger - 71 - 18
24 - 16 - 48
10 - 46 - 27
The mystery winger's initials may or may not be BB.
I'm ok with Brad Boyes.

Maybe Sid's back is strong enough to carry Tangradi?
