    Get ready for TB to pinch like crazy in the 3rd and the Caps to have a million odd man rushes.

    Cooper is so done after this. It's a miracle that guy even made it this far.

    He didn't destroy Wilson when Wilson did the same **** he always does against us all season, why would he start now? :laugh:

    I seriously cannot help myself. I have a problem.

    As inconsistent as the Pens were, they had the Caps. They absol3had them. Be it game 3 or game 5, the Pens beat themselves. Caps were begging to be put down in game 5 and they handed it right to them.

    Letang, Murray, Maatta. Guilty!

    I feel like he was neutered in Pittsburgh, as most enforcers are. The team wants them, but they don't want them to really do their job properly. I recall many enforcers coming, fighting infrequently, then leaving and being back to fighting as often as they usually did.

    That's not a "player problem" that's a "Pittsburgh wants to be tough on paper" problem.

    Don't think TB should blow it up assuming they lose, but can we please stop pretending Yzerman is the greatest GM ever?

    True. It was more our defensive unit's ineptitude than anything that contributed to our lack of puck possession.

    Which is why I get nervous about moving Letang.

    After this game or series, I never wanna hear the words "Tampa" and "elite team" in the same sentence ever again.

    Schultz was stuck playing actual defense while Letang was stuck being an actual ****ing moron. We need to add a 3rd PMD to support the team, also how about the team actually puts their ****ing money where they mouth is. If you say we gotta limit Letang's minutes. THEN ****ING DO IT.

    Very true, outside of Godard, he beat everyone’s ass.

    He was scratched because he is a ****ty hockey player. :laugh: Getting a stick on a shot in the series-clincher doesn't really change that, imo.

    Wilson plays on the 1st line a lot of the time. He's big enough that Reaves can't destroy him with a hit, he's going to refuse to fight which Reaves can't do anything about and you don't want Reaves or his line out there while Ovi and Kuznetsov are on the ice.

    And Godard was barely played because of it. Like he was punished for doing his job at times, it was ridiculous. His 1st season "oh cool, we have a goon that fights" then it was playing him less and less and then from 71 to 45 to 19 games and gone.

    I don't know, they're constantly a pretty heartless team when it counts and their coach sucks. At least dump Cooper, yes, even after making to the finals. He somehow missed the playoffs last year with a still great roster and kept his job, so this seems fair.

    I think it’s completely fair to call out Jon Cooper. What’s he ever won?

    Agreed. He did a good job in 2015, but he's been out-coached by Sullivan and Trotz.
