I think it's an understatement to say that Bylsma completely flubbed how he handled Iginla. It's weird because there had to be a point where Shero and Bylsma communicated, at length, on how he was going to fit in the lineup. I mean, sure, trading for Jarome Iginla sounds great, but Bylsma was steadfast from the start that he would not play with Crosby. Period. Didn't Bylsma and Shero see there would be an issue with having him with Malkin and Neal? Oh well, live and learn, but if they are going to re-sign him then they should probably plan to move Kunitz to Geno's line.

Crosby broke his jaw a minute into Iginla's first game and didn't come back until the playoffs.


Why does that always get lost in the shuffle? And no, I don't think playoffs are a good time to mess with a lineup to counter "he could have played with him then" crowd (And he did for 2 games, I think)

Well, when you are being swept in a conference final and your star center isn't scoring AT ALL...that might be the time to mess with the line-up.

And, it wasn't 2 games. More like 2 shifts, or 2 periods. Maybe.

True, but even between the trade and the broken jaw game Bylsma said as much. In ordinary cases, I wouldn't mess up a line that is rolling. However, and this is especially true in hindsight, they got Jarome F'in Iginla.

The two games Iginla played on Crosby's right while Dupuis was on the left was when that line lit the lamp. But noooooooo DB broke it up anyway.

selfishly, i would like him re-signed because of who he is and his resume, but given bylsma's penchant for run-and-gun, defense-be-damned style of play, its a waste if hes not on crosby's line and a more balanced style of attack going forward. i dont anticipate him being back.

I think it speaks poorly of the organization, if their repeatedly failed style of play dictates Iginla's presence next year.

Crosby scored a hat trick on the 14-87-9 line. *shrug*

I know you are joking and all but we all know he will be here as long as Bylsma is the coach. He is probably safer to stay than anyone not named Crosby or Malkin.

Jarome for two years or Dupuis for four?
I'd lean towards Iginla.

Yeah, it sickens me to see the Penguins show loyalty to an extremely-cheap, solid penalty killer who has gone to battle for the Penguins for years. Any replacement will cost more and be marginally better (if that). I don't get the Adams hate at all.

It's a waste of a roster spot, we got into the same thing last summer. This team and it's fans are really starting to get on my nerves. Might as well trade Bennett and Despres while we're at it, they're never gonna get a chance anyways.

It's definitely Adams whose blocking the path of Bennett and Despres. :roll:

I'm fine with replacing Adams if they can find someone who does what he does at an affordable cost. But they won't, and so they shouldn't. He's not hurting the team, he's not holding back a single player, and he's playing cheaply, which allows more cap space for others.

If you want to make the argument that someone should go to create room for Bennett and Despres, let's talk about Iginla on the second line or Morrow on the third line, and any of Murray, Engelland, or Niskanen. Lose any of them and there's sudden room for the young guys.
