Call me optimistic or just weird, but the team is pulling a 180, I can feel it. There are still those lazy turnovers here and there, but the overall play style and mood is changing. If we can beat the caps on Wednesday I'll be happier than a pig in shit.
@FuuManChuMan Yea, it was -10 in the way to work this morning.......SWIDT

I dont get upset anymore, whats the point? If it wasnt for 29 last night the score would have been 7-1, fans would have left way before the start of the 3rd.
Balls and weiners.
The team doesnt need to pick up another player, the team needs to start calling players out and holding them accountable. By the time we add a new player and Steigy discusses the guys family history all the way back to the 1800's, the playoffs are here. The team loses in the playoffs and then everyone's excuse is, 'Well, the new guy didnt have time to build any chemistry with his line mates".
We need to win games with the players we have, not trade for someone.

Side Note: Apparently a move is in motion to try and get 68 back.
I'll say it again, Pens went 0-6 because Hornqvist isnt there to pitch a tent infront of the opposing net. Putting 87 and 71 on the ice during Pk's is hit or miss, all that needs to happen is for one of them to take a puck to the ankle and guess what, Mike Kadar is living in Russia this summer bc 71 needs rehabbed.

Pens went 0-6 because 72 isnt there to post infront of the net. Calling it right now, tonights game will be a nail biter, the team will play out of their minds tonight. Always happens after we lose to a shitty team, (for the most part).

Hate to say this but if the playoffs started tomorrow, I dont think we could get past rd 1 if we had to play NYI, NYR, Bos, WASH or Philly. We have to win tonight, we cant afford to give up 2 more points, especially to a team that wont make the playoffs.
Go out there tonight, play fast and physical the entire game and ease up on the turnovers.
@YorkPens Craig Adams. 4th line PK guy, who somehow for as bad as he is has a +2 rating for the season and 101 hits, not counting his blocked shots.
I was at the last Pens/Bruins game and the CEC was loud. Granted though, the Pens were playing good hockey that day, none of this lackadaisical stuff thats been happening the past 2 games.

Call it what you want, but watching the game yesterday I felt as though the players spent too much time on the South Side Saturday night. Spurts of playing hard and challenging the opposing players turned into, "meh, go ahead and take a shot on 29, I'm tired".Or, "here, take the puck because I dont feel like carrying it into the zone".
I've said this over the years, the Pens need a new strength and conditioning coach, Kadar isnt cutting it anymore. Granted, you cant foresee blood clots or concussions but if I remember correctly, the Rags have 54 man games lost to injuries. Pens are 5th in the league for man games lost, most of the teams a ways out of playoffs excluding Anaheim (248 Man games lost, 1st in WC)

@cblack66 and by laying down, you mean score 7 goals? After a dirty hit, players should automatically drop the gloves every time, thats what your're saying.
As a player, if you think your team needs a pick-me-up because they are showing zero enthusiasm on the bench is one thing, but fighting everytime there is a dirty is is another.
Thats like me bitching because my co-workers wont stand up for me when I get shafted by my boss.

Did Cookies hit on 10 ( I believe it was 10) knee-to-knee not justify dropping the gloves?
@cblack66 "thats a bold strategy there cotton"
@The Hockey Hooligan Adams hits Suter, Minn player hits Malkin, Bortz hits a Minn player, Minn player takes a run at 87. Boom, 87 is out 4-6 weeks.......No need to start a chain reaction when the Pens had the game in hand.
Scoring 7 goals, 5 after the penalty and forcing a new goalie is more of a retaliation than fighting.
That will hit you right in the feelers.......

Since 09-10, Adams has played 3 full seasons, one 80 game season and one 48 game season. The highest his salary has ever been is 725k and the '12-'13 season he played the most PK minutes for a 5th ranked PK team.
Hell, I dont think the guy has ever been a healthy scratch. Sure the dude doesnt score goals, but how many players layout infront of a Chara slap shot?

I like the Carcillo signing. Yea, he might be a goon but the dude has played more playoff games than most, has a Ring and is a presence on the ice.
It will be strange though seeing him in a Pens Jersey.

This is the typical Pittsburgh fan wanting instant gratification when it comes to sports. When it comes to actual numbers, the sample size is miniscule. Give ol' Jim a chance, Bsylma was loved and favored as a head coach until the number of a large sample size emerged (4 years). It took 4 years for people to realize that he was a mediocre coach when it came to coaching the Pens. Hell, Shero was a god among men and look where he ended up.

@thepensblog @Con_Soul11 Seriously, the dude played out of his mind all season and with the team signing Letang to that much $, do you really think Nisky would take a Pittsburgh discount?
1.So he didnt have some players #'s?
-If I made millions and gave my # to hood rats all the time, I'd change my # a lot too.
-What kind of coach is going to agree to a short term deal? Babcock's contract is up soon
3. Niskanen being traded
-If you didnt know Niskanen was going to be traded last season, you shouldnt be watching hockey.
4. "Willing" to trade 1st rd pick, didnt say he was going to. Draft didnt happen yet.
