We can't win the cup without flower in net, but we can't win this series with him in it.


If Vokoun goes in and wins this series for us, there's NO way you go back to the headcase in the next series. Are you actually serious? Why?

If Vokoun proves he can win, you ride him until he falters in a big way. When he falters, Fleury gets his chance again. That would be the biggest slap in the face to Vokoun if you go back to Fleury after he saved the series.

There is zero need to go back to Fleury if he isn't needed. As far as I'm concerned, Fleury has proven in the last 3.5 postseasons that he isn't the guy that will get it done. Quit living in 2009 people, Fleury isn't the same goaltender anymore and we need to accept that. Quit making excuses over and over.

If Vokoun can get the job done, then you reward him and keep starting him until he starts to prove that he can't do it any longer. This is about the team and winning, not about coddling a headcase. Fleury will get his shot if and when Vokoun struggles, but until then, it should be TV's teams.

it just sucks all the confidence i had which was hard to get after last season, is now shot. Even if we win this series, i dont feel anymore like we should easily walk through in any series. I feel like every series will be extremely hard and i wont have much confidence at all.

heres hoping the pens wake up and no matter whos in goal the pens start playing smart responsible hockey and dominate

It shouldn't be easy but, I had a better feeling down 0-2 vs the Wings in 09 than I do now. It has to do with how we are playing.

So how many of you guys would let Letang play tomorrow night after cross checking a ref? I know I wouldn't.

A message needs to be sent to this team. That disgraceful act by Letang last night is a prime example of what's wrong with this group. And why is no one in the Pittsburgh media talking about it? I've never seen anything quite like it. Think what the reaction would be if Malkin did that. Everyone in Pittsburgh would want Malkin immediately kicked off the team. Do we fans want this organization to tolerate crap like this from its players?

Accountability has to start now. I don't give a crap how good Letang can be and how important he is. I don't give a crap that its the playoffs. His punk ass needs to be in the presser for that garbage last night.

I think he just had a reaction to what he thought was an Islanders player getting involved with his teammate. The league didn't think anything of it and neither does most of anyone else.

I don't buy that at all. The ref bumps into Letang and Letang looks directly at the ref for a second and then proceeds to cross check him.

Regardless of whether Letang plays or not, I don't see us getting many calls our way.

I don't know that the "Letang is idiot and didn't know what he was doing" explanation is any better than the "Letang is an idiot and did it on purpose" explanation.

I'm just so angry about that Letang thing. Its unreal. We are officially at the level of the Philadelphia Flyers organization if we let Letang play after that in my book.

What explanation do you have, then? Most well-adjusted people don't cross-check referees.

I just can't take the freaking Islanders and their fans laughing at us, and our team giving them plenty of entertainment for their dollar.

You're missing the point: neither option is acceptable.

In Letang's defense, the officiating crew might as well have been wearing Islanders jerseys :twisted:

(In the most homerish scenario possible to create) He only got a glance at the ref as he was coming from behind and thought it was an Islander grabbing him?

That's an awful long time between seeing the ref, then hitting said ref.
