Official GDT: Pens vs Habs 10/6/18

Postby DelPen on Sat Oct 06, 2018 6:41 pm

Haven’t seen any anticipated line up changes. Something tells me the Habs don’t put up 6 but I’d like to see some better defense and goaltending regardless tonight.

Why is suspension frequently used as evidence of "toughness?" Plenty of tough guys don't get suspended. To me suspensions are sign of either low IQ or a reckless disregard for other players and sometimes both.

30 seconds in and the Pens dump and change with nobody challenging the puck. The Habs end up possessing the puck and controlling the play and developing zone time including a scoring chance. (due in part to Jack Johnson fumbling a puck and then falling over shortly after)

I still maintain that one player should at least chase the puck and pressure the puck retriever instead of just conceding possession, especially if you're not gassed by any means.

This Kessel on the right side PP is garbage and makes no sense.

Good sign that Murray didn't immediately give up a goal after the power play ended.

Zero need for Hagelin to drop that puck. Fire it and create a rebound. The pass was awful and handcuffed Malkin.

Especially since he had no one between him and the net.

Not a great clearing pass. Not a good bounce (for us).

I know a guy that would gladly shoot the puck if given the opportunity.

Y'all are nuts if you think Jack Johnson was the root cause of that goal. Malkin owns that one, no one else.

People looking to blame him because they didn’t like the signing.

Kessel is the larger problem right now if you want to pick out a bad contract at the moment.

Not root cause. Combination.

The problem thus far is a lack of a transition game and a willingness to shoot the puck.
