Shots would be close if they counted posts though!


3 posts for the Pens and 1 for the Canucks.

That period was a lot of fun to watch. The Sedins and Kesler line looks really good. Vancouver's defensemen like to step up a lot, luckily they've taken the worst of the hits.

Overthink, horrible decisions, maybe improper personnel, too predictable, horrible zone entry.

A lot of this can be fixed with the addition of Letang skating the puck up ice. The addition of Neal won't hurt either in the shooting category, however we still make too many poor decisions and are too stationary. You watch teams with FAR less talent and their movement is unbelievable, which opens up shooting lanes.

Separate Sid and Geno and let each run their own unit and see how it works. But good old stubborn Bylsma keeps doing the same thing over and over. Just have to get to their game. Teams solve "their game", but you keep doing it anyway.

Had Conner shot off the post and Luongos back and then Maata shot off the cross bar. So there has been a few more tink's that won't go on the shots for category.


Canucks had a few good shots and a several long range shots that were easily saved.

She sang both anthems today in less time than it takes her to normally sing just ours. Hoping that was brought up before they brought her huge mouth back.

I think they've moved the puck pretty well and taken some good shots. It's not a problem right now.

They score almost 30% of the time.

What do you expect? 50%? You're being unrealistic.

It's 7 games in, if they keep up a 30% rate I'll eat my shorts. Don't use a small sample size to brag about numbers. The main issue is how disorganized they can look when a team pressures them, or how they look clueless trying to enter the zone.

They were 35% last game, then it dipped to 28%, why? Because it's a small sample size.

that's better puck movement.....utilizing the back of the net is a nice new addition.

yup, he is...when he starts to put shift after shift and game after game together, i'll be sold.

As of now, he's a great talent that is messed up in the head.
