In terms of NBA standings, Pens are just 29-29 without TK since 2008-09. :idea:

Pretty crazy statistic.

Stamkos and Kunitz are tied for points, at the moment.

Kunitz is a +24, while Stamkos is still (despite his mass point production) a -4 :shock:

... you're unnecessarily jumping to a conclusion.

I'm not saying he's as good as Lidstrom. I'm saying his season, statistically, is like one Lidstrom would have. Mid-teens in goals, mid-50's in points (if you extrapolate it), solid D play.

In no way am I saying P-Mart = Lidstrom.

I'll agree with that. Steady, positional, stick on puck D and contributing on the offensive side.

i'm not sure how we won that game. in the first period, i came to peace with it being just one of those nights where things weren't going to work out. that was a stunning turn of events.

I'm totally expecting a loss to the Flyers...


But I'll still be excited if we win. Just preparing myself for the *charcoal*storm LGP will become if we lose.

Oh, I didn't jump to any conclusions. I just thought it was... lavish praise. He deserves it, though.

I misread the :shock: then.

I don't see it as lavish, if you look at my explanation of myself.

Seriously? After all they have done, one of you already counted this as "one of those nights" after 15 minutes, and another expects a loss against the Flyers?

This team may have looked a little past this game to Sunday, but once again Vokoun was great and the team just sticks with it. They no doubt expected Geno back tonight and lose Kennedy to illness. Warrior effort. Great PK.

Just no reason to give up in any game or expect a loss as a fan. One will come eventually, but this team gives me confidence. I do not believe that this team will lose on Sunday. In fact, I believe they will get all three guys back on Sunday and bury Philly.

I'm willing to risk being disappointed.

Come on.... He is not close to Norris worthy


Why not? He has been exceptional in every facet of the game this season. He's even scoring goals.

He won't win it because he doesn't have the big name or the flash, but I would put Martin's game up against any other in the league right now.

Haha chill Snappy. I'm only saying it because, sooner or later, we're going to lose.


I'm just preparing myself for it. Look at it as tongue-in-cheek.

OK, I guess I get it. I'm just saying that I don't believe this team will give up that loss easily when it does come.

I am just happy Paul Martin read LGP during the offseason. He clearly took the criticism to heart, and completely changed his game.

I'm also saying that we will take Philly's heart on Sunday and send them spiraling into oblivion.
