It would appear that the pressure of being the only trick for a one trick pony of a team is gone. He is going to go on a scoring streak of epic proportions this season, he and Malkin are going to click and it is going to be fun to watch.

This is shocking stuff...

Pens are leading shots 15-10, faceoffs 12-10, and you get the feeling they should be leading by more than 1-0.

Like I said, a few good bounces next period, this game is over. Unless we go into the dump and trap mode.

Crap. And no radio feed!!! ARGH!!!!!!



Now that sucks, but believe me, I know what it's like to have Pens games unfairly blacked out. I have Center Ice, and my idiot cable company blacks out the Pens even though I am only in the Columbus blackout sphere.

Anyway, can't you get the radio feed from NHL.com's NHL radio link, or is that blocked to Canada, as well?

We had alot of powerplay time, but still. Our second line needs more than 12 minutes a game, and they would be much better with Malkin there.


I hate to break it too all off you but Malkin and Crosby are ALWAYS GOING TO SHARE THE ICE TOGETHER. When you need a goal you put your best players out there to get it, Malkin or Corsby moving to wing IS NOT A BIG DEAL. It just isn't even an issue for players that good and most other players as well. They want to be out there when the game is on the line and they wont be happy if they are not out there when the game is on the line. It is simply an impossibility to even consider benching one of those guys when you NEED THAT GOAL. Get used to it.

I have no problem putting Malkin and Crosby out there together on occasion, even if we aren't down a goal.

They click, and they are dominant.

Say what you want about Staal but the guy has closing speed IMO. He not only catches up to guys to take the puck away, he can explode to separate. What is with this "slow" guy talk on this MB?

Sure, he WILL get faster and stronger but he can hold his own NOW!

When you need a goal you put your best players out there

Who disagreed with this? At what point is "when you need a goal"? I would consider those times to be powerplay, and last 5 minutes desperation. You do not put them together for even strength of the first period. that's just retarded.

They want to be out there when the game is on the line

IT'S THE FIRST PERIOD.

It is simply an impossibility to even consider benching one of those guys when you NEED THAT GOAL.

IT'S THE FIRST PERIOD. And BENCHING? Yeah, I sure said that we should bench Malkin. Jesus tap dancer.

I must have missed something... Staal is fine and he will only get better with those long strides.

I have no idea why this is even a question to Therrien. OF COURSE they will be on the ice when we most need them. No friggin brainer! :shock: :wink:

Wow, you need a drink, relax your overreacting to his comments I think, just my opinion. Don't like what he said, ok, but think a bit before you get your blood pressure up. Sometimes the context is lost, and easily in a game thread.

Yeah his first push is going to continue to get more and more powerful. It's only a matter of time with that player...

I don't see the big deal of putting them out there for an occasional shift together during the early parts of the game is a big deal at all.

yeah they are going to play together in the first period too, get used to that too. Even if they add acouple of good wingers they will still put them out there at times at every point in the game. It's called stacking a line and every team has a curveball like that. There isn't a team in the world that does'nt change their lines around. Balance is great but you need to remmebr that the whole object is to WIN THE GAME not be the most balanced line combo. They don't give out points for having balanced lines.
