If "worst defenseman" was the standard Orpik and Letang would have been scratched 10 times each this year.

This game is already over.

Quote of the year here:

"Dan Bylsma is truly unbelievable. Pens come off their most impressive defensive effort in a long time and what does he do? Breaks up the d pairings from last game and scratches Despres for Engo.

Once again, a far superior player is benched for NO reason."

Did your autocorrect spell "Orpik" as "the PK"?

Fleury got a piece of it and could have stopped it.

Glass might be one of the most useless players the Penguins have handed a sweater to every night since the X Generation ended.

Must be a coincidence that Orpik always seems to be in the vicinity when a goal is scored against the Pens.

Like I said, for once Bylsma was fair.

Technically he did stop it. The puck was deflected up by Fleury then went off the crossbar and in. A fraction of an inch and we're talking about how he saved that ridiculous Chara one-timer.

Ideally, Fleury could've got out to challenge more but there was some guy in a white sweater planted right st the edge of the crease.

Orpik has basically become all talk and no walk. Constantly preaching about being better on defense but continually makes simple mistakes like not clearing guys out in front of the goalie.
