I'd like to believe he'll suffer the same fate but I've been hoping he'd be fired for the last 2 years. Losing in the regular season is the last straw? I hope it is.

Time to turn this crap around. Seven is enough.


Welp, this sickening stat just went to 0-8. Dominated by a team with a bunch of nobodies. Good thing we have our high priced superstars.

And Jagr hooked Malkin in the playoffs last year. You still can't turn the puck over where Letang did, trying to go straight up the ice (where every defenseman in the history of hockey is coached not to put the puck.

Nah, frankly, neither Sid or Malkin are a patch on his ass. Dude knows how to get it done, always did.

I knew there was a reason I posted this on the opening post tonight. It was like seeing the writing on the wall.

No. Its the whole NHL has figured the Penguins out effect.


I do believe that this is the deal.

Agreed. Keep them to the outside (and they are willing to stay there) and you beat the Pens.

Should have paid Jagr that extra million, instead of opting to be loyal to turn and shoot Tyler.

Great work team. Well played.


Perhaps, and perhaps I'm mistaken, but I don't believe coasting down the stretch has ever done them any good.

No, the goaltending ain't the problem. The Devils take advantage of turnovers, the Penguins turn it right back over trying to do some fancy passing ****.

Man, if the Pens were in any other division they wouldn't be in a playoff position. This is not a good team.

Marty's puck moving knocks an entire point off of his GAA. That is why he is still really good in his old age. I don't know why this skill is not something that is considered essential in developing goalies.

Honestly, even Crosby is doing dumb **** and doing it repeatedly. How many times in the last 2-3 years has he tried that stupid blind backhand pass directly to an opponent. Any coach worth anything would have addressed that crap at first glance, now everyone on the team does it.

Bylsma's done. It looks just like Therrien. He should have never been retained, but it's time Ray acknowledged the error and canned him. The team will say the same platitudes about how they haven't quit on him, like they did with Therrien, but it's over.

Nothing has done them any good the last 4 years. It's crazy to think they are better off playing for the 3rd/4th/5th seed than having the upper hand on the 1st. I guess this is all part of DB's plan so they aren't coasting...
