Then let's put in my 2 year-old nephew in! How much worse could he be?

Did he even play after the 1st?

He fell on just about every shift.

Despres is not ready for the playoffs. He should not step on the ice again the rest of the way.

despres was baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad on both of those first 2 goals. he's gonna be real good, just not this year. hopefully brooks is ready to go because i really dont want nisky, engelland or despres in the top 4. i thought murray struggled in his own end a bit the last 2 games as well.
ziggo wrote:Exactly. He (England) didn't have two cross checking penalties at bad times (part of momentum change of game 2) The dude (Despres) ain't played in forever. He actually made some calm plays passes...oh wait. The guy is a rookie, except for last year, when he played against the Flyers, and most aproved of his performence. Eaton gave up a goal, Murray. Despres doesn't get better with experience, by letting him play, with upside? England will improve with experience. True or False? Despres is a young guy who, played with alot of the young Islanders. The guy can improve with experience ?
The Penguins are going to lose, because of Simon Despres ? Or, the experience, plus the talent level, plus playing with (take your pick). Yeah, he can't improve, right. Yeah, England is still raw ? also. If this were my team, (and I'm glad Bennett got a regular shift (for most of the game) He had a shift near the end, where he put it all out, on the forecheck. Its just a matter of time and experience. How do you get experience. Despres made some mistakes in his own end. So did Letang, Murray, Eaton, Niskenan (early, I think he tightend it up as the game went on. In my mind, Despres has upside, England has topped out. On my team, I play Despres, because upside and talent wins out in the end. Oh, and for the guy that said Inginla doen't play among the boards. He must of heard you. I have watched Inginla, throughout his career. He has lost a step. He had a great forecheck game. Hockey is such a game of eb & flow, strange bounces, predictability, and non-predictability. Bounces, bad bounces. I liked, in the third, Bennett got aggresive, did a couple of little things, but it was obvious to me, his dedication and talent. Did anyone else notice. One tooth, every game. There is no script, no fairytale. Whoever wants it more.......
