It's not gonna matter what the lines are. Pens will decimate them.

I just want to see it once for lawls.


We give TK a lot of crap, but he really hasn't ever looked like a "spaz" in the playoffs.


I think I'm the only one here that likes tk. We could use him right now. I'd take vitales speed as well.

I think so too. Confidence derives from good goaltending. It's looking like all we need is less than 4 goals against. I don't think we can play any worse than the last two games and we still won one of those.

Froggy wrote:since iginla, malkin, and neal are all pretty useless at even strength, keep them together as a 4th line so they don't spread their stink around. use them on the top unit power play, but don't give them significant ES minutes because they aren't doing anything significant with those minutes.


sometimes I wonder if you guys watch the games at all or just cry about them after they're over.

Damn, take a step back and just imagine where our defense would be if Shero didn't trade for Murray. We'd have to be throwing two of Despres, Eaton, or Engelland out there every night...that's scary.

Henry Hank wrote:But he only took six faceoffs. Considering that Vitale is really strong on draws, I don't think that's a compelling reason to play Jokinen if he's not doing much else. If someone in the top six goes down, Jokinen is a great guy to plug in. I think they need something different from the fourth line and Vitale will bring that.


Is Vitale "really strong" on draws, though?

61.1% this season, 57.1% for his career says yes. That's actually better than Jokinen.

I am not comfortable with Despres right now. I'd rather have Eaton in there.

Despres and Letang together? Awesome, let's just spot Okposo two goals right off the bat to not put off the inevitable.

Eaton was pretty bad last game as well. He was getting thrown around like a rag doll. I'm not comfortable with either of them but I'd rather see Despres tonight.

Vitale is always in beast mode after he has been scratched for a few games. Let's see what he does.

I'm thinkin' ol' crafty Disco Dan has a secret plan to put Fleury on the wing with Malkin.......that'll certainly cause some shock amongst the faithful......... :pop:

You and your "statistics" get out of here. We don't need any of that crap.
