Majority? Eh. Half of game 1. Parts of game 3. 2 minutes of 6v5 in game 4.

Can't believe Kennedy would talk trash on his way out. Good luck trying to be relevant in the western conference.

I'm not claiming some 70-30 split, and it's probably even or just about, but I thought we carried play more often than they did, even if by small margins. The sweep was misleading.

0-4
2 goals the ENTIRE series.
0 for 15 on the PP

we were smoked, spanked, and discarded.

Any other description would be "Baghdad Bob" like

We hit what, 8 posts? I just disagree, let alone saying its Baghdad Bob-ish. Some of the numbers (eg shots and scoring chances) reflect it as well.

Yeah not seeing how we were in that Boston series at all. Outside of the first part of game 1, Boston carried the majority of the play and by a large margin. We have have had a high number of shots, but most of those were of the low quality variety. We weren't much of a threat at any point.

Briere?!?



Not one of my favorites, but he could come cheap after a buyout. There are probably 10 players I would want before him.

I was always a fan of TK. Best of luck out West.




Stupid video won't start at the right place like it does in the link when embedded. Loved TK talking to his dad via phone after winning the Cup. Starts at 1:07:20

I'm not sure if it was trash talking, but it was definitely a final shot fired at the team....which of course missed it's intended target.

final shot? i don't get it. he was probably asked a targeted question about being scratched in the playoffs. what else would he say?

I'm sure you've seen 1000 different post-game interviews. As much as we complain about the same, tired cliched answers, there's always taking the high road and saying something about understanding what's best for the team. To me, his response had a sour grapes feel to it.

from the article: “I’m not really sure. I thought I had a great playoff, and I’m kind of stumped,”

clearly responding to a pointed question. so if he's asked, "any thoughts on why you were scratched?", he's supposed to say..."the penguins were a great organization to be a part of. i'm grateful for the years i spent in pittsburgh". that wouldn't be weird at all.

I assumed that response was simply asking him about the trade.

He was perplexed that he wasn’t regularly in the lineup for the Penguins, who were swept by Boston in the Eastern Conference finals. Kennedy played in just two games in that series.

“I’m not really sure. I thought I had a great playoff, and I’m kind of stumped,” said Kennedy, who had two goals and three assists in nine playoff games. “I’m really kind of lost why they didn’t play me more.”

or "With the number of forwards that were carried on the roster during this year's playoffs, there was only a limited number that were able to play. That is a decision made my management, but I made sure I was ready to go when my name was called."

and although this might not be fair to him, his regular season streakiness may have been the reason he was a post-season scratch.

That's a lot of 0's lined up consecutively under his name.
