How is the Pens defense "way" better? Can you go into some more detail?

If they retained half the salary and took back the garbage contract they gave us,...

He's just going by the WAR stats.

If they retained 2 Million and gave us a TOP prospect, I'd be willing to swap them Petterson

How do identical records relate to different point totals, and the math does not work for either total given the 2 points for a win 1 for an OT loss?

Not sure I buy that the Pen's defense is "way better than Philadelphia’s", but I guess we'll find out.

Take is easy, Philly fans. He based it on the WAR projections. In a weird way its nice to have you back in here on a game day though.

Man! Good thing I saw JT Miller is out just now. Swapped Point back in for him and now Jarry is my goalie instead of Lehner.

The Pens did improve their D (by subtraction) and I like Marino. There is drop off on their third pair (as there is on most teams' third pair).

The Flyers did lose Niskanen and do require some projection due to the youth to conclude that they are above average but I think it's possible.

We'll see. Should be fun tonight. Thank god Hockey is back.

Because the WAR stats say so!

They also say the Penguins 3rd line is slightly better than the Flyers 2nd or 3rd line, so I guess we were worried about nothing.

But the Flyers 4th line is way better than any of those lines, which is why the Flyers forward group is better.

See how much sense it makes!

Nice excuse to end the day in a timely manner due to the 5:30 puck drop. If quarantine brought any pluses is that games don’t always have to wait until night fall.

Prediction models have us in 2nd place? Ummm... alrighty then... I thought we might take 4th. I'll support the math then.

Also why I'm not buying Kapanen is only a 3rd liner and McCann and Jankowski are just defensive specialists. If you can put up points, you'll out perform those models.

I think the Pens defense is a big unknown at the moment. It should be better than it was last year but we can't say that for certain yet.

Also, Carter Hart is overrated.
