    I still remember it was like February against Toronto where we overtook that lead. We got off to a super hot start (4-0 or 5-0) and we overtook the division lead. The team and the announcers acted like it was some kind of coronation.

    Then in the 2nd and 3rd periods Toronto absolutely dominated them. The Pens still won 6-3 or something but even in that game it was like "guys we made it let's let off now!" Yay we're division champs! And then immediately imploded.

    The defense was also very good. But maybe that had nothing to do with Sullivan.

    I’ll be honest and state that I don’t know much about all these “advanced metrics and stats” and such but I take them with a grain of salt and feel like everyone trying to “moneyball” NHL teams by pushing these numbers is misguided at least a little.

    I tire of watching the Pens enter the offensive zone, work the puck around the boards and to the points, always staying on the perimeter, only to never get a shot off, or have the shot blocked, etc.

    Then somebody has an orgasm over the “advanced stats” of player x or player y and how said player is the best player on the roster, etc.

    You have to have high quality chances and capitalize on those chances if you want to win in this league. The Pens had a few to start the game last night, blew all of them, and then proceeded to wilt and get dominated from that point on...

    The team is just as average as the eye test as they are analytically.

    Can we trade Zucker back to them for Bonino? Depressing.

    He's been awful there.

    But imagine if we had just signed him to a 4 year deal at 3.5 million instead of trading 1st, 2nd 3rd, 3rd, 4th, 4th, Wilson, Cole, Gustavsson for ultimately Jared McCann and a couple mil in retained money on Bjugstad.

    Yeah but like seriously we moved a 1st, 2nd 3rd, 3rd, 4th, 4th, Wilson, Cole, Gustavsson for Jared McCann and some dead cap and people think Rutherford was a good GM.

    I like Jared McCann, but the fact we literally paid all of our assets for him and Brassard and now he's a 3rd line LW is just asinine city.

    Probably not a coincidence that Rutherfords best stretch came with all of Boterill, Guerin and Karmanos. He’s great at getting stuff done. In fact he’s too good at getting stuff done, and needs guys around him to tell him to wait.

    Hextall and Burke's first moves are going to say a lot about where they think this franchise is.

    It’s unlikely but I hope it’s a number one goalie and a depth player.

    Geno has to be ok riding shot gun but Sid can't when it's a benefit to the team and we're led to believe he's an amazing leader and blah blah. Last season it was clear the trio of GMR was our best line in a very long time. But again this team let's Crosby dictate over doing the right thing to win.

    Imagine if Malkin did that. This board would be all over him. But when Sid does it it's oh he's owed whatever blah blah.

    There's one in particular who apparently was an all-American college athlete in addition to an academic stud who also pulls more hotties than Mason Rudolph lol

    What kind of roster are you expecting to ice exactly?
    How many more stars and talent do you need before you say it's a really good roster?
    In the age of caps and parity... it _is_ a really good roster.

    This roster on paper is above plain average.... their performance is well below average.

    I've been his side piece from Ann Arbor Michigan for over a year. Those zoom filters are a hell of a thing mate. He thinks I'm just a random super model with a deep Brit accent.
