On the other hand, this is a game where 9 times out of 10 we have the lead going into the 3rd. It's just one of those nights again.
Kunitz is apparently pouting about playing the left wing lock. Boo hoo, I'm tired of these whining, petulant, smug crybabies. This team as it is now can win the division and maybe a playoff round or two, but it is nowhere near championship caliber. They just don't have the makeup, or the depth up front. Geno and Letang are still headcases and have not improved their game in years. MAF has not exactly been money in the postseason. Trades of Letang and Malkin would bring enough young forwards to rebuild the entire organization, perhaps even a high pick and a young goaltender in the mix too. This team is about Crosby and it always will be. He is otherworldly right now, and they should rebuild to a degree around him, James Neal, a few of the other veterans, and their defense, which could be strong if the other man behind the bench took over permanently.
