I thought you did that on purpose, to be funny. I laughed.

Jeferee at least looked like a reasonable facsimile of a linemate - he made and received passes, got involved in the play, etc. Tangradi just looks like he's skating up and down, watching the game with all the other spectators.

His skating seems like he's being pushed around by an invisible dolly.
Not even really the "speed", but the whole act of it....It seems completely unnatural for him.

You mean to say that skating isn't the cornerstone of Tangradis game?

Sorry if this has been said already, but will Boychuk be in the lineup today?

You're exactly right...and the same masses also will be criticizing Bylsma for juggling lines too much while simultaneously saying he doesn't make enough in-game adjustments. Penguin fans are getting ridiculous, and it's no wonder we're hated so much by other fan bases. We have the top two players in the game, yet I hear nothing but complaining. It's embarrassing.

You think tht Pens fans are reviled by other NHL fans because we complain about our team too much?

Yeah, that's it. :face:

It's one part of the spoiled, whiny, know-it-all persona that is attributed to Penguin fans. Complaining about our team doesn't cause other fanbases to hate us -- it's the entitled "we deserve everything to be perfect" attitude that comes from Penguin fans.

News to me. It might not be the only type of adjustment possible, but it's an adjustment.

I won't disagree, but with HCDB the type of adjustments he needs to make in-game are systemic. Adjust the breakout, adjust defensive posture, etc. Simply bouncing people up and down the lineup does nothing when the system isn't working.

No, not top-6. Where did you get this idea?

Organizational depth at forward is a good thing.


"Boychuk will see his first action in a Penguins uniform Saturday afternoon against the New Jersey Devils. And he’s been penciled in alongside the superstar duo of Evgeni Malkin and James Neal. But no matter where he’s expected to play, Boychuk is just happy to get in the lineup."

Thanks, offsides! I posted before it was mentioned (or before I saw it mentioned) as a possibility. Even so, I didn't think it was really going to happen. I sit here, with my feet up and a brewski in hand for today's 1:00 start, corrected. Organizational depth at forward is something we really need, though, and joe, I'm not sure what else you expect from Ray re: forwards at this point in the season.

I actually don't have a problem with inserting Boychuck into the 2nd line. But Jeffrey should not be scratched. Scratch Cooke or Kunitz or even Adams. This is the problem with Blysma. He doesn't have the gumption to hold established players accountable...
