Cut him.


Yup, that's what i said.

Good stuff.

You said he's a joke. I'll take that joke for 82 games.


He is...at times, and I'm not wrong saying that.

You were talking about him like he's an unqualified bust. He's off to a great start. Sid makes some goofy plays too. You take what you get with him. Bottom line is he's one of the top 4 forwards in hockey no matter what you think.

Thankfully not a giveaway chance by Bortuzzo. Let's go pens! #36 has been quiet.

Never said he was a bust. I said he's one of the top talents in the game when he's on. The problem is he has far too much trouble finding his on switch. That's my biggest gripe with him. When he's on, he's unbelievable, and probably challenges Sid for tops in the game. When he's off, he's downright lost, horrible decisions, horrible passes, lazy, bad penalties, etc.

He needs to work on that consistency, it can't be happening as this point in his career. He's been better this year but still has way too many inexcusable plays at times.

We're tied in the 3rd against probably a more talented team (without Letang, Neal, and Bennett). At this point I'd probably just put Malkin and Crosby together and go all out. We're already a 1.5 line team today, might as well make that 1 line as dangerous as possible.

Anyone?


Second Canuck goal... THREE Canucks behind Orpik between him and Fleury and he was just going down to a knee to block... nothing. That is the quality level of D that we can expect from Orpik.

So there were 3 or 4 Canucks to our 2 dmen?

And you're going to fault Orpik for that? How about Geno's line lazily changing and not backchecking?

Actually, that's what just about every D man in the league would do. You can't take one guy because there are 2 others you need to worry about.

I still don't understand our refusal to remove players from the front of our net, either at even strength or on the PK.

never seen a team be worse at getting pucks out of their own zone. Pens get the puck 2 feet from the blue line and cant get it out every time.

Really annoying

We need an appropriate Dan Bylsma GIF for all things unexplainable. Someone get on that.
