I would expect Eaton's minutes to shorten going into the playoffs, but not because of him being "on the verge of getting beat" but instead to the natural phenomenon of benches getting shorter.

I thought Martin and Orpik played very well yesterday. Orpik redeemed himself nicely from the 1st period delay of game mind cramp.

This. I'm amazed at how often he beats defenders flying down the side boards. His hands aren't really terrible, as I've noticed his puck possession (especially during the aforementioned rushes). Just needs a bit of a scoring touch (and of course, having Tanner Glass on your line isn't exactly a recipe for goals).


He's earned 3-4 goals based on his hustle... Hard to crash the net when the puck never gets there...

Yep. Playmaking IQ beyond anyone else on the team, except maybe Letang.

I'm a huge fan. I'm sure he'll have a drop in form for a period of games, but the effort and attitude are there.

I know I'm in the minority, but the "teens" line (15 -18-19) hasn't really bothered me that much. Not any sustained pressure, but they've created a few chances and do not give up much in their own end.

Obviously, I can't wait to see a few games with Malkin, Neal, and Bennett.

Jeffrey isn't good enough to wear number 15, give him some dumb number like 43
Glass isn't good enough to wear number 10, give him some dumb number like 28

Not sure if the sarcasm meter is working on this one. However, while I have been a little hard on Glass to date, your reference to him having #10 definitely (and illogically I admit) rings true for me. Ron Francis was/is/forever will be my favorite player, and seeing Glass wear #10 sort of :face: :evil: :thumbdown:

Hopefully this post has the same powers as it did when he declared that Dupuis wasn't good enough to wear number 9, 3 seasons ago.

It was a great post.

If he tries that play 100 times he might score twice.

I'll take the effort and the skill that put him in that place it every night. Thomas Jefferson said "I am a great believer in luck, and I find that the harder I work the more I have of it."

Yeah, I'm pretty indifferent to Glass, but seeing that 10 is a little... I am disapprove.

Not sure what Sean McEachern ever did to have his number immortalized, though. ;)

10 should be retired. Dan Quinn was one of a kind.

Did anyone else notice the Pascal Dupuis name that squirt segment Sunday? It looked like the photo shopped an adult head on a kids body lol
