yyeah.. if you were listening to the broadcast, you'd know that the entire purpose of this thread was to more or less poke fun at the tampa broadcaster who called their 5-4 shootout win "A BIG BIG WIN!" so, yeah. it's about, 80% mocking tampa, and 20% mocking the knee-jerk posters calling for MT's head (coughyoucough) among other things.

legitimate criticisms like ranting about how MT is somehow biased against Pesonen?


A "rant" .. ?? I'm calling a spade a spade.

I mean .. here we have a hole on Crosby's left wing .. being that Dupuis stinks there. And here we have Pesonen available .. so Therrien just ignores him and "makes him wait". Why should Pesonen have to "wait"? He's obviously a lot better than Dupuis as a scoring winger .. am I the only one who can see that ..?? So, yeah .. let's make Pesonen play on the 4th line where he's going to be wasted .. makes a lot of sense. (That's only "restrained sarcasm").

Maybe Therrien isn't "biased" .. maybe he's just .. ummm .. lacking in perception .. (?) .. {I'm trying not to "rant" here, regarding Therien's "awareness"}.

Is this based on what you've seen solely from Dupuis or have you seen a lot of Pessonen?

This is all MT's fault. He should be fired and also have his ribs broken.

Yeah, I'm waiting for the evidence that Pesonen makes the first line more effective than Dupuis does. Based on Pesonen's past performance in the first line role at the NHL level. ..oh wait...

Go read my post in the other thread in response to you where I detailed why not putting Pesonen on a line with Crosby and Satan makes sense. Dupuis helps open up some of the rink for Crosby to be most effective. As of yet, no one has reported Pesonen is able to get into the corners and work around the net like Dupuis can. It seems you are more willing to sacrifice Crosby's overall effectiveness in order to increase the effectiveness of a guy who has not played a single NHL game.

If Pesonen is so much better, please explain how he has yet to crack an NHL roster while Dupuis has on several teams now. With Pesonen and Satan on Sid's line, Sid is FORCED to be the guy who has the puck in the corners and behind the net. There is also a pretty good chance that MT wants to see Pesonen play with players that force him to be good in order to look good. He is the one guy on the roster with probably little video and scouting about his style of play. If you stick him with Crosby, what does that show you? He can take passes from one of the best passers in the world? Ok, great. What if they find a better fit during the regular season for Sid's other wing? Do they just experiment with Pesonen during games that count to see if he can be effective on another line?

It's way too early to begin criticizing the coach staff this year. If this is alredy what is causing you concern, I can tell you that you are going to have a long difficult year. Especially with Gonchar out, MT is going to be throwing out all kinds of PP lines until he finds one he likes. I've already accepted the whining that will take place while this is happening.
