I guess we could chip in something to talk about. Hmm...

What does everyone feel about the newly structured "system" the Pens seem to be playing, with short quick passes out of the zone. Is this going to play to Letang's strength, allow him even more room to break the puck out hard himself, or is the defense-playing-defense-first mentality going to be a hinderance?

Letang is talented enough to play any system, if he wants to. That part is a different question.

I think it gives him more of a chance to get physical down in his own zone, but with the way the Pens have been scoring off the rush, adding Tanger jumping in there with them is pretty enticing.

Nah, he can hit the net once he gets to the circles.

I feel this way, but I don't care for him. That being said, his talent can again put it over the top,that's if he wants to do it.

Letang could have certainly been useful last night.

And not just for Gaucho.

I just saw that Bennett is out today. I bet that explains why he didn't get much (any?) ice time down the stretch on Saturday.

Calling Lt. Dish, calling Lt. Dish! It appears that one of your charges, Sunshine, is missing in action and off the grid. :scared:

I hope you're wrong, but something is definitely afoot. I hope we won't be kept in suspense for too long.
