No practice today HCDB and players will talk at 1230

Postby thepittman on Wed May 08, 2013 12:12 pm

#Pens just announced they're now not practicing at all today. Bylsma and a few players will talk to media at 12:30

They've all been optional skates; not sure we can call this practicing.

They may be planning a marathon session of video...which would probably help a lot more than on ice practice. Someone needs to drill this crap into the player's heads. I'm really hoping Mario and Ray pay these guys a stern visit as well.

a mandatory talk may be better than an optional skate.

i guess.

By "talk" it sounds like they just mean they will be available for media. "well we didn't get to our game, we really weren't hustling out there, etc etc"

I don't mind this move. Skill wise, they are fine.

They are just dumb in the head. Maybe a sitdown will help.

Like I said in the other thread, making them watch their abortion of a game may help light a fire under their ass.

Show them the difference between what they were doing well, and what it takes to lose.

Maybe they will sit in a circle and read the riveting tale of Nick Chopper and his perilous journey to find a heart.

I cannot wait to hear what Dan has to say. If he says anything about "Getting to our game", I will find a way to get my hands on the nuclear launch codes.

they were going to sit around a fire and find their spirit animals, but once "chicken" got taken a dozen times or so, the exercise lost its meaning.

So, will they have a game day skate tomorrow, or will that just be optional too? Maybe a trip to a good action movie will help to reset and recharge their batteries. Or maybe just a good day of drinking would help.

Media availability. OK cool. Every time a cliche is used, take a shot.

Hopefully that means they will be going over tapes and strategy then.

If I had lots of money I would order a set of golf clubs for every player and have them setup in front of everyone's locker in the dressing room.

the crux of this media availability will be to talk up Fleury's "bounce-back" ability for when Dan sticks him out there tomorrow night.
