I'm pretty sure it was determined that Talbot was gone, weeks before they Kennedy.
I don't see what Talbot has to do with the situation.

I have a theory thats its because Malkin was in Hockey Christ mode and could have played with two high school players and still scored at will

Tyler Kennedy

Rode Jordan Staal's wing for his entire career. Now he's not even good enough for the NHL. This guy needs to start sitting...

kennedy is a 1 dimensional play. He is a player that Jordan staal made look good. He is selfish and is not a team player. He has become replaceable for a cheaper 3rd liner. Shero should make this deal. His glory days are done.

Yeah really. Kennedy sucks so hard for a 600k 4th liner. THEN you talk about him being a consistent 3rd liner, and making 2.0M and its incredible how bad he is. Just get him off the team.

Jeffrey does more than Kennedy. I don't know what it is, but its got to be better than Kennedy.

Come on Mikey, Jesse, I40D, KOVY27, Skullman80, SolidSnake, KG....

Still think TK is fine for what he is. A 3rd liner. Average 3rd line scoring touch. Does his job in his own zone. Forechecks and cycles. If he were more offensively gifted he would be a 2nd liner.

:thumb:

I can't just spend all day fighting off Tyler Kennedy hate from people that don't listen to the last 100 things I've said about him. Just search my posts "Kennedy" or "TK" and mikey287 and see what comes up...if that doesn't answer your question, then ask in a different way...

He's not God's gift to hockey, in your search, you'll probably see that even I said it looks like he can probably be replaced with Vitale next season...I think the problem is, you just don't get why he's not good but if you focus on him all game long looking for all the things he does wrong you can find things to complain about...

If the biggest problem on this team is our ES-only, third line player stuffed onto the wrong side of the rink with a guy that just got here and another guy that hasn't played in the NHL before who gives 100% on every shift then I'd say we're doing just fine...

You just don't like him, fine. I get it, we all get it, based on a non-specific reasoning to your claims, I'm not so sure that you get it, but I'll give you the benefit the doubt 1000x over in this case...does it need to be every post? This is the guy that's holding us back? Hell, a thread titled "Brooks Orpik" with another asinine complaint in it, and the first response or second or whatever, is "What about Tyler Kennedy?"



This is you. Replace "pants" with "Tyler Kennedy"

Yes, we're getting away from the style of play that made Kennedy effective. When you make philosophical changes sometimes the personnel adjust and some get left behind. If we're not gonna cycle anymore, then Kennedy doesn't fit and should be let go at the end of the year. If we are going to be a cycling team (not the odds-on favorite to win), then TK should stay...though again, I wouldn't qualify him because of the dollars involved. I don't think it gets much easier to digest than that...

I do too! Yeah people complain about him shooting, but when we go through times where we're not shooting the puck, you can always expect TK to garner some sort of chance by just shooting from anywhere. A lot of times it gets us out of our mini slump and we start to gain momentum. Granted sometimes it kills the momentum we have too.

I've never had a problem with Kennedy and I too can't believe the amount of hate he receives around here.

If it was up to me TK would be waived or in WBS by now. He sucks enough said. My opinion.

I couldn't watch the game last night, but you don't have to focus on Kennedy to see his flaws. They jump out at you even casually watching the game. 3 on 2? Come down the wing, get a half a set on the defender, wind up for 2 seconds and fire...directly into the goalie or directly into the defending players stick and out of play.

In reality that's as much credit to just how much of a force Jordan Staal was and TK was really a suitable winger for his crashing style. TK just hasn't adapted to Sutter or can't figure out that he can't play the same way as he did before.
