I didn't see the thread until now.

Wow, what a lame 40 minutes.
Recchi was right, the compete level is lousy. A bumbling mess out there. The lines haven't worked out so far with Horny out now.

Still 20 minutes to get back into it. I wonder if the Birdies come out better in the third? Their effort the first two periods was comical.
And the Devils are better for sure this season.

There was nothing lucky about that one. Malkin put the tender on a string.
Get the next one Birdies.

Not in the cards tonight, but this Hornqvist thing needs to work out ASAFP. They either need to get him back or to replace him with something that works. They've sucked this year without him in the lineup.

Am I crazy to think Sprong could fill a similar role to Hornqvist. Hardly the same player but Sprong seemed solid enough physically and good near the net. Have to think he offers more than the other two noobs.

I don't think Sullivan likes or trusts Sprong. He has never really said anything positive about the player and has been critical several times of his lack of total game.
That, and Sprong has had chances only to see him shipped down repeatedly.

As far as replacing Horny- I don't know how you fill what he brings. Last night clearly showed that Knuckle and Reaves are not capable of it. You could see Malkin's frustration with Knuckle when he was on the second line.
Not being critical of either player because I believe they both play hard but don't have the skill needed to play in the top 6.

Sullivan wasn't at his best last night IMO. He way over juggled the lines and often had strange groupings out there. I questioned his use of centre men in the OZ on FO's when he could have brought Crosby out.

I thought Oleksiak was good again and he was more than a bargain in pickup.

The Pens didn't come to play last night. They looked slow and out of sync. It was like they thought the game wasn't really on for long periods of time. Jersey is much improved.

The only thing that matters is getting to the playoffs and doing so without major injuries.
