No, I meant pensfan20. His first few sentences are disagreeing with me but then he went on to agree with me. I was/am genuinely confused. Of course, I may be mis-reading his post but yeah, still confused.

Forwards:
Crosby, Malkin, and Staal are sluggish right now. Satan doesn't quite fit yet. Talbot's a -5 (ouch). The little guys (Kennedy, Zigo, Dupuis, Cooke, etc.) have played well. Sykora was OK in his first game, nothing particularly good. Godard is just, well, Godard.

Defense:
Letang needs to let it rip a bit more, especially on the PP, but otherwise he's been solid. Same with Goligoski. Eaton and Scuderi have done their job well (Scuds even scored a goal). Gill needs to lay off the own goals. Orpik has stepped up as a big physical presence and has chipped in offensively.

Goaltending:
Fleury has been outstanding since returning from Sweden. Three of the four goals he's given up since returning were deflected (two by Gill), the other was a perfect shot. It's good to see a longtime team weakness turning into a strength.

You honestly can't blame Gill for putting those in, especially the first one.

The other team got lucky and banked it off his skate or stick.

I'm not assigning blame, just pointing it out.

I know, I was just referring to the people who are blaming him for those.
