I don't know what's going on with him. He's playing like Ovechkin. You see him but he's ineffective.


Ovechkin has really come on since adapting to the RW


So....make Malkin a RW?

Gaucho, you had better go with them. We need extra fan power.

Am I the only one not concerned by Malkin's play? The only thing is I wish he would shoot more.

I'd be happy if he showed up in any area.

Shooter, passer, faceoffs, defensively, PP, just anything.

Well, i'm not as concerned because I know how he can play, but I think that maybe Bylsma should be thinking of something new to try to get him going.

I'm just worried that he could be hurt. If not, then I think he'll snap out of it sooner rather than later. He did say that he misses Lazy. :D

His passing has been fine. His defense hasn't been bad. Faceoffs he could do better. Shooting definitely. PP, well he is without anyone that had gelled this season.

I wouldn't say his passing has been fine, if anything, I think his passing has been pretty putrid this year.

...and OV just scored a beauty goal.

Genos unwillingness to shoot is concerning. I think something is up with his shoulder still but we will never know. He needs to be better though no doubt.

I love "Crash the Net." It's fun to hear new fans' questions to learn more about the game and Bob Grove's such a knowledgeable, positive guy. And I've always loved Phil Bourque. I think someone from the Love Thread should take Lange up on the offer to send a question about your love life to "Crash the Net."

I thought it was a solid road period.


It would be if we were playing Boston, but Carolina? They are not a very good team and have lost 12 of their last 13.

Even Ovechkin during his apparent "off years" was a lot better than Geno. This is ridiculous.

Its pretty sad that the coach needs to think of something to get his star player going. Maybe he should just grow a pair.

And as others have stated, his passing has been putrid. Sometimes its hard to tell if he knows what team he is on.

Wondering if I was the only one that saw how open Bennett was in the slot on the PP when Geno hesitated and tried forcing the puck elsewhere

And by mental rut i mean like if you play an instrument so much you get burned out for a while and even though you're playing, nothing works or sounds good to your ear. So it looks to me like Malkin is going through the motions, loooks fine, but it's just not effective at all.
