I dont agree with those lines.

Dupuis - Crosby - Iginla
Kunitz - Malkin - Neal
Cooke - Jokinen - Morrow
Kennedy - Sutter - Adams

Question is who do you pair with Letang that can play top 4 minutes? Eaton just doesnt have the wheels.

12-87-18
24-36-10
27-16-15

Me neither. Morrow is severely outplaying Iginla at even strength. This team needs more Morrow. Switch 10 and 12 and those lines make a lot more sense...

i think the simple argument is to switch 14 and 12, but that's just me.

But they you've just got 12 weighing down Crosby instead of Malkin. IMO, he's just not cut out for the top 6 anymore.

Iginla has played fine. His issues at even strength stem from playing with Malkin. Its hard to be effective when one guy wants to forecheck in the corners and the other guy wants to turn the puck over at the blueline. Morrow would have the same issues on Malkin's line.

Dejan said Kennedy went off with the "regulars" instead of skating with the extras. If he's in I'm okay with that.

So if Neal is back in, is someone that didn't skate this morning actually hurt? Cause right now that would be 13 forwards (Neal for Bennett, TK for ...)

So Sutter is in the doghouse now with Bylsma? I don't care about the switch, just want to get it all figured out.

I was surprised to learn this is his first taste of play-offs too.

No necessarily hurt, but TK for Glass I think would be a suitable option.

I'd like to assume TK for Glass but nothing is certain. Iginla, Sutter, and Morrow did miss the skate...but I had no idea any of them were hurting.

Could be TK for glass or adams (and probably will be) unless sutter, morrow, or iggy is hurt.

Yea I don't disagree with the move, I guess it makes sense to limit him until Sutter is feeling comfortable.

Sutter lately is in that mode of "get rid of the puck whatever the situation," which is unlike him.

To be fair, a lot of the Pens are doing this. Part of it is the Isles' forecheck and part of it is just stupidity.

It was another optional skate.

I wouldn't read much into anything.
