That is my wild speculation to Kunitz missing morning skate...or he has explosive diarrhea!

Finally! Does this mean Lovejoy is injured/benched/traded?

We're trading him to NYI for Strait.

Just read that Tangradi skated on the Crosby line at practice in Kunitz's absence

I will be shocked if he gets more than a shift before being demoted/benched.

So now we're just writing guys off before we even see them try to play 1 game, let alone one shift with the team.

I'm just going to hold out until we can fill our top 6 with top talent cause every team has at least 3 of them in their top 6, we suck.

I'm worried about Kunitz playing with an illness...is it going to affect his level of play?

Lovejoy even if he isn't noticable hurt should be rested after that hit. No need to miss a concussion in a short season when you have depth to rest him. When he is fully cleared he can have a spot back.

No way Despres doesn't play close to 20 again, he's right that he plays better the more he is on the ice.

No reason to play Tangradi or Jeffrey on the 4th line. Boychuck is a better player than either, or at least I'll blindly say that because I'm just looking for something, anything, to grab on to.

Pens Facebook wrote:Chris Kunitz was not on the ice for Pittsburgh's morning skate. Eric Tangradi took his spot in the lineup on line rushes and power play.

Tangradi-Crosby-Dupuis
Jeffrey-Malkin-Neal
Cooke-Sutter-Kennedy
Glass-Vitale-Adams

Orpik-Martin
Despres-Letang
Lovejoy-Engelland-Bortuzzo

Tangradi worked the net-front on the top PP. More in the Penguins Report...


That must've been accidental. There's no way Bylsma used Tangradi in (virtually) the only scenario that he's useful, even if it was only practice.
