Don't we play them again in a couple of weeks? I want to see Sid just chop one of their faces off with a 2 handed and dare the league to suspend him.

He called out Letang all night. He's the only one that EVER does.

Someone has to. Nothing wrong with telling how it is. He has so much passion for Pens hockey and it probably ticks him off when he sees them play this way.

Mears got caught saying Letang was great the last two games. Almost spit my beer out.

Totally agree. He just called the team "lackluster vanilla".

Wouldn't be shocked if Rutherford is waiting for them to get back to Pittsburgh before pulling the trigger on something. The team stopped treading water before they left for Canada and have been screaming for a life vest ever since.

Not vanilla, half the population likes vanilla.

What kind of shake up does this team need?

Defensemen with fully functioning brains. There's just so many things wrong with the defense that I don't know how they polish this turd with the corps they have. Throwing 58 and 3 out there for 25 minutes a night, regardless of who else is on that blue line, is just utterly crippling.

It also doesn't help that no one can score. Shots were 39-21 Pens.

Trade a RW, any RW and bring up Sprong, he isn't afraid to shoot and has some passing idea where the net is. Immediately makes him our top wing.

Has Sprong stopped referring to himself in the third person yet? Defensively, Sprong makes Sheary look like a Selke candidate! Sprong has a great deal of potential, but, it would be counter productive if he can’t play within Sully’s system.

He's worse than useless. He's a real detriment right now.


He needs to figure this out quick or needs to be off the roster. Either his brain is scrambled from whatever and he needs to spend the rest of his contract on LTIR or needs traded.


If he was a Maple Leaf, he'd be drinking a mai tai on Robidas Island right now.

Odd thing is.. Määttä seemed to play just fine when he wasn't close to Letang.. :scared:

Not a coincidence offense plunged when Schultz went out.
