Who Else Has Ziggomania?

Postby DocEmrick on Wed Oct 15, 2008 6:24 am

He's on pace for 20g if I'm not mistaken. Excited to see Therrien's Gold Points Reward system give Ziggomania a chance with Crosby.

A absolute signature Ray Shero acquisition. The guy has been excellent and has been one of the best and more noticeable guys on the ice in the 2 games he has been a Penguin.

He was sick on faceoffs last night, well over 80%. Solid.

He was very good. He is a capable player. He is a right handed center who can win draws. He has played great. Pens won the faceoff's last night handily...

11 for 13 on faceoffs, getting quality shots on goal, good penalty killer, I'm liking the pickup more and more everyday....

anyone still give a crap about adam hall?

zig is fine. he's a 4th line center. not really something i get excited about. i mean, eric bogunecki had a goal his first game and looked good early. same with guys like todd kostopolous. he's good for that role, but i don't have the mania. sorry.

I'll admit he's looked good. Jesse pointed out last night in the game thread that Sportsnet was way off in calling him slow. I think he might have a slow start, but when he gets the motor going he was pretty quick out there.

Kennedy had one shift where it looked like he had the ACME rocket skates on, went outside on an orange and black pilon and then straight to the net.

Square or Sine? Did you get to the middle of the wave and think his name was Tomd and then come back the other way and think is name was Tod?


To the OP- I think Ziggy was one of the big things missing in the off-season acquisitions. There were a few bottom line centers out there and I was surprised and disappointed to see Shero not pick one up.

My big concern this year with the Pens was a lack of a good 4th line. But now with Cooke and Ziggy on it, I think it will be damn fine.

Three months from now: why is Zigomanis on the team over Thomas/Taffe? He doesn't do anything.

Zigamazing. I will always love whoever fills his role. Whether its Taffe, Hall, Ziggy, they will be among my favorite guys on the team.

The goal was gravy. The thing he was brought in to do he delivered and in ALL of the key situations. If he doesnt score again this season but he wins faceoffs at over 50% he is a welcomed addition. I was impressed with how clean he won some of the most key draws last night. He definitely looked like he knew what he was doing. I want to see more though, one game does not make a Ronnie Francis caliber faceoff guy.

He was at ~59% on faceoffs last year and ~56% the year before. He's the real deal.
