What else needs said? Terrible special teams and even strength. Other than that, we're fine.
Pens actually out shot them 38 to 24. Don't ask me how. I sure didn't see it.
Wow,you're right. I missed that totally, and it sure didn't seem that way.

I guess they won 51 games last year with mirrors because its basically the same team. I think what they lack is leadership in the locker room first and foremost.

i can't see the powerplay ever being successful with Letang running it. i think he is a very talented player but is the opposite of poised, calm, and a good decision maker which is what you need obviously for someone that the power play is to run through. he's pretty much near worthless at getting pucks on net or actually scoring from the point as well.
no idea why shero didn't bring back sullivan, i guess he made him wait too long going after parise but that was a big loss.
there is just no way this team as its constructed right now is even as good as the team that lost to philly, we didn't upgrade anywhere and the offseason was a bust.

Nobody should be surprised by this.

I've been trying to say the same thing since last season. If Crosby or Malkin are off, this team's chances of winning are slim.
On defense, we still don't have a pp quarterback and I don't think anybody can shoot from there, not even Letang - or he refuses, I don't know, so teams collapse around own goalie (Flyers) and aren't worried about shots coming in from the point.
There are so many wrong things with this lineup, I'm pretty pissed off. Same crap as last year. Maybe we'll go on a good streak for a bit, but I know I'd change things going into the playoffs or we're risking getting kicked out again.
We have problems with big physical teams and quick, skilled, or even semi-skilled ones.
I would add another scorer. I would add 2 nasty agitators/hitters with size. I would add an offensive defenseman who can shoot and run the powerplay. And I would add one huge D like Hal Gill.
This small, not too skilled, lazy team is making things pretty lame to watch. We are, really, the opposite of the team we used to be.
