Yes, I was wondering where Puck Drama was. Are these guys fans from other teams, with absolutely no life who have the time to go on a message board and post negative comments? Flyer fans I'd presume, as they have nothing to write about on their own team's message board...either way, Shaky Walton seems to be increasing the intensity of his personal attacks against some of the most intelligent posters on here, and if he keeps that up, he will lose his posting privileges. It seems to make him even angrier when mikey throws hard facts and stats right at him, and he can't refute them, so he resorts to name calling. I think at one point, he called him "Mr. High and Mighty" (without the appropriate punctuation of course).
And to all the other posters who are 100% negative at all times, do you realize that the NHL has a SALARY CAP and that every %$#@*& team has holes? True, I've been relentlessly critical of Bylsma the past few seasons, but criticizing coaches and strategy is fine to do IMO because that stuff is open for debate on message boards. A lot of posters on here have played and/or coached at least a little, as I have. Others have watched the team faithfully for decades. Here's an honest review of what I saw in the game earlier today, as I watched every second of it:
*Fleury made the stops he needed to make and put up the doughnut, which is always a confidence builder.
*Kunitz played physical and was opportunistic once again, pouncing on loose pucks and winning battles.
*Tampa was able to slow the Pens attack somewhat, but at the expense of offense.
*Sutter is on a hot streak. Goal aside, he was tying guys up and just being a black hole when the opponent had possession of the puck.
*Conner, Vitale, and Ebbett played well and utilized their speed, but do they need all 3 in the lineup? A big body at some point would be helpful, provided he could skate a little.
*Just a great road win, not as many turnovers.
*Didn't hear Niskanen's name much...which is usually a good thing for a bottom pair "D"
*Dupuis continues to struggle offensively, but he was in the right places and played a sound game.
