    I was bored and put together our 20-man starting rosters from 2009-10 until now. Players highlighted in red missed significant time that season (8+ games) due to injury. Forgive the errors in some of the line combos (particularly the d pairings).

    2009-10:
    Kunitz - Crosby - Guerin
    Fedotenko - Malkin - Dupuis
    Cooke - Staal - Kennedy
    Rupp - Talbot - Adams

    Gonchar - Letang
    Orpik - Goligoski

    Eaton - McKee

    Fleury
    Johnson

    2010-11:
    Kunitz - Crosby - Dupuis
    ? - Malkin - ?
    Cooke - Staal - Kennedy
    Adams - Talbot - Rupp

    Letang - Orpik
    Martin - Michalek
    Goligoski - Lovejoy

    Fleury
    Johnson

    2011-12:

    Sullivan - Crosby - Dupuis
    Kunitz - Malkin - Neal
    Cooke - Staal - Kennedy
    Asham - Vitale - Adams

    Orpik - Letang
    Martin - Michalek

    Niskanen - Engelland

    Fleury
    Johnson

    2012-13:
    Kunitz - Crosby - Dupuis
    ? - Malkin - Neal
    Cooke - Sutter - Kennedy
    Glass - Vitale - Adams

    Martin - Orpik
    Letang - Niskanen
    Despres- Engelland

    Fleury
    Vokoun

    2013-14 (so far):
    Kunitz - Crosby - Dupuis
    Bennett - Malkin - Neal
    Jokinen - Sutter - D'Agostini
    Glass - Vitale - Adams

    Letang - Scuderi
    Martin - Orpik
    Niskanen - Maatta

    Crosby or Malkin gets injured this season and I'm just going to toss up my hands and stop watching until the playoffs.

    What? Why is Sutter red? I thought he took today off as a maintenance day for his wrist?

    Shero sold this team's soul to the Devil for the Cup. Checkmate, atheists.

    I have wondering about whether it was team make up, trainers, whatever which caused us to be close to the top of man games lost year in and year out.

    Although last year we were only 19th most man games lost, which surprised me. It was a shortened season so maybe that was why.

    But for the most part we lead the league in players lost, and in significant players lost, year in and year out. One year would be luck, but every year? Something is going on, as this has not been an old team which you would expect that many injuries.

    Yeah... it's really weird. I just don't believe in bad luck, to this degree. But at the same time, I couldn't really pin down anything that would cause this team, in particular, so many injuries. So I don't know.

    I just know, as melodramatic as it sounds, that I've completely given up on seeing a season where at least the majority of the team's key players don't go down with significant injuries over the course of the year. It just seems like a given, now. Like it's just part of Penguins Hockeyâ„¢, these days.

    Early and often this year, too.

    I keep telling you. All we need is a few more like Glass and Adams. Or Dupuis. They never get injured despite people trying to trip them as they are walking down the street.

    I tell ya, that Dupuis fella even gets hate mail (daily) from as far away as china. But he is like a brick wall, you can not get him out of the lineup. He will still be there when Crosby retires.

    This is the real reason why healthcare is so expensive.

    Allow me to horrify you by correcting your 2010-11 lineup (at least to start the season):
    Kunitz - Crosby - Dupuis
    Comrie - Malkin - Talbot
    Cooke - Staal - Kennedy
    Rupp - Adams - Asham

    Letang - Orpik
    Martin - Michalek
    Goligoski - Lovejoy

    Fleury
    Johnson

    Even worse, though, is what the team exited the playoffs with:
    Kunitz-Staal-Kennedy
    Neal-Letestu-Kovalev
    Dupuis-Talbot-Conner
    Adams-Rupp-Asham

    Orpik-Letang
    Martin-Michalek
    Niskanen-Lovejoy

    Fleury

    I distinctly remember Bylsma promising that if you like your Kunitz-Crosby-Dupuis, you can keep your Kunitz-Crosby-Dupuis. Period.

    I have been on the government website all week trying to get a better option and can not even sign in.

    I wonder who is responsible for that.

    I hope the Penguins don't get scammed by the United States Prescription Drug discounts cards being sent around!

    Maybe it's some type of Hockey Munchausen syndrome by proxy? Or a curse, it's probably a curse. A virgin sacrifice is needed, I volunteer Nispikass.

    Oh, I saw a headline this morning that Sutter was out indefinitely, but maybe I'm wrong. Obviously the 2013-14 season was the only one that I didn't use the "min 8 games missed" criterion for.

    Now check other teams and see how often their players are injured.

    I'd wager that the Penguins aren't seeing anything different than the rest of the league.

    I don't see 8 games as the benchmark to start saying it's significant amounts of time. I'd say 15 games or more would qualify. Still depressing though.

    I think almost 1/10th of the season is pretty significant.

    Wow those were some horrible wingers. I guess i blocked them out, it's crazy we even won a cup with that roster. We are very lucky.

    towards the end of the season and playoffs, that team was almost lovingly awful. for the first time in years, the Penguins were a bit of the underdogs. no team with that forward depth should've had any success. but they were somehow holding their own with the team that took the Cup winners to 7 games and swept the Capitals. definitely a pretty memorable season. :)
