I never said that it was right, I was clearing up what happened because there is a huge difference between "strangling" someone and a choke hold. The nypd banned choke holds somewhere between the 80s and 90s. Unfortunately this is not the first and likely not the last time it has been used during an arrest.

@brendannn @TPBderek It was a choke hold, and he was resisting arrest. Not saying it was right, just clearing up facts.

@LP66 @MrsMcCheese @FlowerPower in the Pens system, i just don't know what Boychuk brings... of course, I also have no clue what TK brings either.
2 years, 1 month ago on Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 22 - Montreal Canadiens
@LP66 @MrsMcCheese @FlowerPower ps I like Vitale tho.
@LP66 @MrsMcCheese @FlowerPower keep Jeffrey on 3rd line... if anything try Boychuck on line 4 without Neal... keep neal in the top 6.
@LP66 @MrsMcCheese @FlowerPower ps we have Boychuk who is a 3rd line center. We have a center... not saying he's worth anything but ya know... one exists.
@LP66 @MrsMcCheese @FlowerPower who is going to give us anything for TK? Seriously that guy is worth a bag of pucks
@LP66 @MrsMcCheese @FlowerPower perhaps Neal can't connect with Sid's passes. Obviously there was a reason why Dallas put him as trade bait with Nisky for Gogo. He's played well in the Allstar game and project Hattrick which leads me he can play with others in a "casual" atmosphere... but maybe he's really that guy when the heat is on he can only respond to a few people and perform.
@LP66 @MrsMcCheese @FlowerPower I guess Dan's thought is in that Nealer either plays phenomenal or awful depending on his center and how they play. At least we know that the kuni. crosby, duper line performs... so far Neal has made no contact with Crosby... so if he's going to do nothing might as well have a strong 1st line?
@FlowerPower @MrsMcCheese @LP66 not sure about Thursday... I was out of town . I saw the score and barfed in my mouth a little.
@FlowerPower @MrsMcCheese @LP66 Not tonight. He was on Sutter's line.
@LP66 @MrsMcCheese @FlowerPower ya never know until it happens... but we have been in those scenarios and I think we can all vouch for what our team can and cannot do.
@FlowerPower @LP66 @MrsMcCheese exactly. One line shouldn't make or break a team. But look at Neal... he's an amazing player, but he falls to pieces without a strong center. Yeah, Sutter had a great night, but he's not a good fit for Neal. And what about defense? Letang is "good" right? why hasn't he been playing very well this season? Or Orpik? He hasn't had a stellar season either.
@Larfleeze @MrsMcCheese maybe Bylsma should be more of a dick and less of a buddy. Cause the "my buddy" system is not working
@FlowerPower @MrsMcCheese true story, he lost the team because he was too stiff on the players, but seriously? Being everyone's bestie is not working at all. It's time they just admit defeat and move on.
@LP66 you'd like to think it was one... but what about the last few? Ever since Malkin has been hurt it seems like the team can barely figure out how to play hockey. Have quite a few of the top 40 players in the NHL (I am considering who was/ would be on the All-Stars team) and having them fall apart repeatedly without Malkin is pretty scary
But seriously, so Thierren didn't work for us... but he seems to be a good fit for the habs. They are playing amazingly well. I'm not saying kick Dan to the curb now, especially during a weirdo season... but if we have a similar turn out like we have the last few years there really is no option as how to handle this. We have way too many players in their prime to keep throwing away season after season. Sometimes just a slight "tweak" to the system/ morale can make the difference. I can't see how Shero would let another year go by with poor playoff results.
@LP66 @FlyinPenguin I don't know about that. At this point I would think the two goalies of record were Price and Overpriced (Voukoun)
@hrdinasnipples @MrsMcCheese The habs played like crap... so did we. Unfortunately for us this seems to be the new normal... for the habs, this is the first loss in 8. If we played a 7 game series, I can't be sure we would have ended up on top.
@LP66 @Mr. Confidence remember after like game 2 or 3 when we were still winning and the team "had a players only meeting" to discuss how they had to play better? Apparently those guys at that meeting are all on IR or or on vacation.
It may be a win, but I still see it as a defeat.
@LP66 @MrsMcCheese @pensheart I was about to suggest Crosby covering the goal, seeing that he's pretty good at street/ Deck hockey but thankfully Price wiffed it and no OT was needed
@pensheart @LP66 I doubt they would put him in cold... although I still say TK could do a better job playing goal right now
@FlyinPenguin I don't think our defensemen are that bad. I think the current system we're playing though doesn't focus enough on D. I do think there has to be a coaching change. I know a lot of people want Bylsma's head. Not sure if they would make that type of change at this point in a wacky season. I do think maybe there will be an assistant coach change or some other minor change. If the season ends up in the crapper like the last few, I can't see Disco Dan coming back. Too many players in their prime to keep blowing seasons on Dan. We know at least one recent veteran is on the market...
Maybe TK should try some good luck voodoo to try to not mess up a game. I mean he licked his stick in a game and got two goals... it couldn't hurt... right?
@FlowerPower @kirk_75 @ChristopherVasquez perhaps they should strap some goalie equipment on TK. Maybe he would play better? He certainly can't do worse then Vokoun.
@LP66 @MrsMcCheese not tonight he's not. Hell... I am beginning to think Boychuk could do better than tk
@LP66 I can't understand why they would play Kennedy but not Bennett. At least scratch him and play Beau... at least he can do something out there.
@Mr. Confidence after the last few games my mom may be giving Flower a run for starting goalie before Vokoun.
habs... stupid spell check :(
apparently I spoke too soon.
about time... hopefully the tabs won't catch up.
Even Crosby looks like he doesn't want to be there.
How long until Malkin's Concussion gets it's own twitter?

@dCbnGino Concussion like symptoms according to Rossi.

Marty is all curled up in his net like Vicki from Small Wonder. I'm beginning to wonder if he's not just a robot goalie.

Another penalty? Good grief!
@pensheart @MrsMcCheese Agreed. Too much exertion from shoveling could do that to you.
Did they make the pens stay up all night shoving the Prudential Center parking lot? Cause seriously, they are just playing so sloppily.
Seriously, are they serving tea and crumpets in that box? Because there has to be something good going on in there for Geno to keep doing stupid stuff to get thrown in.
Just what we need... another penalty on Malkin.
@xraydeltaone @MrsMcCheese the coliseum is the one place where watching the game from the top tier you are better off just watching the ice then trying to watch on the jumbotron. Of course it's also one of the few places you can still manage to get $20 penguins tickets.
2 years, 2 months ago on Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 10 - New York Islanders
@xraydeltaone have you ever been to Hempstead? It may be part of "NY" but it's literally in the middle of no where. Even New Yorkers don't want to go all the way over there.
thank god for Duper
I love how the MSG announcers explain the penguins lead on Nabakov not having people shoot pucks for long periods of time....
Let the steam rolling commence.
2 years, 2 months ago on Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 9 - Washington Capitals
@digiguin @MrsMcCheese as do I. He didn't look very shaken after that puck got in.
@digiguin but MAF would have lost all confidence and managed to let in like 3 more pucks after that. Hopefully, Volkoun can stand tall and win this one.
