I'd rather talk about Beau Bennett....he's dreamy.

Despres was a healthy scratch the last couple games, so I wouldn't be surprised they still played him to get him some work before sending him to camp. I'ts possible he stays down though, his play has been suspect as of late.

The Baby Pens have very little offense as it is, they'd probably score zero goals the rest of the year should both Bennett and Tangradi make the big team.

Snapper, I know I took it out of context. Just throwing a friendly jab your way, that's all. :fist:

As for Tangradi, we'll just have to agree to disagree, though I think I overstated my defense of him because I was on the other side of the argument. I pretty much agree with what Mikey said:

I think the real question is......

How many Official Pittsburgh Penguins Scot Beckenbaugh jerseys will be on sale opening night?

I got the joke Net. I just don't see how he can even be mentioned as a top 6 option. If we are going to "give" someone a spot there based on no relation to his past performance I'd just give it to Bennett.

Sullivan was okay for the power play; but with and without him, the penguin power play has to be held to a high performance level. More points, needed from Letang or whoever is at the point.

AS Bowser mentioned, curious to see if Gino and Sid will kill penalties. Sutter will be a classic 3rd line center and PK person though.

Spoiler:
Pinch me~ Sid's healthy and motivated
