He blew out his knee. I have more respect for him now after he left the ice like a man.

I don't think anyone hates Blueger here haha. He deserves to be the 3c
- 668710

Yeah pretty much everyone likes Blueger. And I haven't ruled out some offensive growth in his second year to be a 3c. He's looking like it early.

Everyone two minutes ago: how can they split Rust and Malkin

Everyone now: nevermind

- Tojo.

I was never on that bandwagon. I used to think Guentzel and Crosby were inseparable but now I don't think either Crosby or Malkin have "must-have" wingers.

I would be nice to find a combination that develops chemistry and stick with it, but it seems a long time since we've seen any chemistry in the top 6.

I'm starting to really hate Erod and it's not even his fault. Sully has him in a role he can't handle.

I'm having flashbacks to Simon with chances dying on his shift, except he's not doing as much to create them.

ERod got hurt and we're sort of pretending to be concerned but also kind of happy to see other guys on that line.

Well, poop. All that work to get the equalizer and then let this garbage in. Ugh.

Or Sheary who is unable to win a puck battle to maintain possession in the offensive zone.

Honestly, if you told me Sully was trying to sabotage Crosby by putting the least capable winger on his line, I would believe you. How long has it been since Crosby has had two capable wingers? Why does Sully feel the need to put league minimum 13th forwards on his line? No other coach in their right mind would do what Sully does.

Marino has to knock the man on his backside there. No fooling around.

Yeah, he looks awkward there. Not liking it, either, especially since he was looking shaky to start the year on his strong side.

Couldn't agree more. I don't understand why he won't give his best player the best possible tools to work with. Every roster will have holes. I'm not patching a 3rd line hole at the detriment of my first line. Sully needs to go. Sooner the better.

Why, because JJ's parents spent all of his money and Ceci's didn't?

Criticize Simon for not finishing all you want, it’s warranted. But he didn’t negatively affect the play up until the time came to take the shot. Plays die on ERod’s stick. He does not contribute

Hahah clearly not everyone is pretending to be concerned. I just noticed that Rust is with Sid. Who did they slot with Geno?

Simon was good at driving offense as well as solid back-checker and creating turnovers.

Kapanen. But it's a little scrambled at times as it usually is with 11 forwards.
