Least favorite Pen of "Crosby era" (Poll!)

Postby IanMoran on Mon May 19, 2014 8:26 am

With all the negativity on LGP, I figured why not have a little bit of fun and add to it :) . Seriously though, figured it might be a semi-fun discussion. I tried to compile a list of infamous "scapegoats" of LGP recent history. Obviously not the "worst player" (huge range of skill up there), but the one that you complained about, cussed at, generally disliked the most

I made this list and had too many options than the maximum 20 options. So decided to make it a players only poll (took off all 3 coaches). Others who were trimmed from the list at the last second: Kovalev, Vitale, Iggy, Comrie

Ponikarovsky. His Penguin career had no redeeming value. The only saving grace is we gave up nothing to get him and got nothing in return, so the equation balanced.

We did get all kinds of nicknaming opportunities, so I suppose that's something.

Here's my "saving grace" list.

Adams - Penalty killing
Christensen - shootouts
Conner - At least he wasn't Minard
Engelland - tough guy, flexibility
Fleury - save on Lidstrom
Glass - slow motion hits.
Godard - tough guy
Goligoski - got us Neal and Nisky
Kennedy - shots, shots, shots shots shots shots.
Letang - 10 dollar hands, 10 cent head
Macintyre - The Captain! Wait, sorry, that was Steve McKenna.
Spoiler:

Melichar - His suckiness was partially a product of his era.
Neal - 40 goals
Ouellet - One of the few that could score.
Ponikarovsky - see above
Satan - Fighting Carolina!
Scuderi - The Save!
Staal - Nothing to hate.
Tangradi - Youth...ish
Whitney - Got us Kunitz

Yea, I was sooo excited about him when that trade happened.... Thought he'd be corner piece of us ripping off the Ducks (still love trade obviously)

Maybe my memory sucks, but I don't recall much Armstrong hate. Maybe some, but I think if anything it came later from people frustrated with so many lovers of him thinking of scenarios in which he ended back on the Pens

Oullet? Really? I never understood why so many people did not like that kid.

Quick Stats look:
50 16 16 32
73 19 29 48

From what i remember his skating was not so great, but he always seemed to be in the right spot to get a goal for us. How nice would that be now-a-days?
