Discussion in 'Pittsburgh Penguins' started by Ugene Malkin, Oct 16, 2018.
Penguins vs Team Sweden....I don't like our odds, but like the rest of you guys, I am a sadist and will watch.
I think it's wise to stack the 1st line while Crosby's in this semi-slow phase. Let them help carry until he's got juice.
As much as I love Hornqvist, he's poor on zone entries. He dumps it in at the first sign of pressure. It often leads to line 1 losing possession. You can see Sid snapping his head back in frustration when this occurs.
Brassard will stop up at the blue line and survey his options. He'll protect the puck. I really liked what I saw from them in the 3rd. Excited to see what they got in store for Vancouver.
Cue the "we woulda won if it weren't for your meddling line combos, Sully!" PGT topics.
Let's Go Pens!
Brassard from 3C to 1LW? Jake over to RW? Jake away from Crosby? Rust-Sheahan-Horny?
But hey, it could be just crazy enough that it might work?
Being brand new to HFboards, just wanted to say that it's a massive upgrade from /r/hockey and /r/penguins. There's so much more insightful posts and so much less nonsense. It's clear that there's seasoned fans here with a lot to offer.
All reddit is is just teenagers/early 20's kids degrading each other. The toxicity's unbearable. People just posting one-line zingers for karma points. You get barraged with tired memes and extremely poor humor. Practically the only thing reddit sports subs are good for are news updates.
I'm never going back. This is my haven now.
Dear lord, man...the horrors you've seen..
Medic! Get him some water!
You're gonna be okay...we're here now...
Also..we have our own zingers. But they're based on advanced stats. Ha!
Can't wait to see the Sedins!
Please, the a seat, I have some bad news...
The other problem is that 72 isn't fast enough to pressure the puck carrier, and regular season Crosby isn't going to put that much effort in on the forecheck on a low % play.
Ooooh yeah, I forgot they retired.
Well at least this Pettersson fella should be fun to watch.
Reddit is good for some things, like news as you said, plus funny pictures and steam links.
The upvoting system does not lead to good discussion though unfortunately, it promotes groupthink.
How much more bad news do you want to hear today
any hockey is better than no hockey! give it a month or so.
Welcome aboard! Hope you enjoy it but we have our minority of crap as well. Just ignore it and this place really is the best hockey talk in the world.
First game I'm going to be able to watch all 60 minutes. Let's see if the TEAM defense can rally around losing Shultz and lock it down. Let's also see if Sid shows up for more than 4 shifts.....
How do you feel about endless discussion re Austin Matthews? Asking for a friend.....
If you’re using Reddit for anything beyond dog pictures and pornography you may be doing it wrong.
@Ugene Malkin Sweet GDT! Perfect for Spooktober
@Riikolas Revenge Welcome aboard!
I could see Vancouver really doing a number on us with Pettersson in the line up. Without him this should be an easy win unless somehow Sutter and Boeser out play our stars....
When you put it that way...
... we're gonna lose.
Boeser lights up Murray too..
Edited for full pessimism.
He’s actually looked pretty good from the few Canucks games I’ve seen. He’s at least proving he is an NHLer.
