You are right he is sloppy. He also has assists on both goals. He isn't hurting them that much. He definitely could be better, but he's not going to bust out of a slump watching from the press box.

Today a friend and I were still talking about Geno's work on Gibbons' goal the other night. A sight to behold.

Malkin just needs to find a force field deactivator or find some power converters

His 18 assists sure have hurt this team.

That's like, 500,000 per assist. Totally worth it!


This can't be serious.

That said, praising Geno for passing up that shoot like JR just did is, hm, questionable.

I wish they would show a replay of Crosby getting absolutely flattened while standing in the slot on the power play shortly before the Kunitz penalty. The puck was no where near him. How on earth was that not a penalty. It was 10x worse than everything they did call.

The problem taking a players recent body of work, cherry picking a few instances from the past few games, and using that to make a basis of a player... well it makes you look bad when you read what you wrote a few months down the road when said player has 8 goals in the past 7 games or something like that.

It's a long season - let's let it play out for a bit.

This in a nutshell... these guys should know better... I mean hooking on an offensive zone faceoff? Your on the 4th line, up 2 goals.... good lord.

The Adams one was especially horrid given that there was no one to help him and he was just supposed to kill time while everyone changed behind him.

Jumped online thinking there's no way the first comment I read could be irrationally negative after that period. You win again, LGP.

Kris Letang turns the puck over more than anyone on the team. Did it again tonight on the PP and the Caps nearly scored.

But yes, Malkin needs to shoot that puck.

Seems Malkin is the new scapegoat here on LGP, now that we lead a game and HCDB can't be..

I hate the GDT when we're losing.

Wait, we're beating the Caps 2-0?
