You kicked ass for a long while and singlehandedly pulled this season from the doldrums. We thank you for your service.

Fractal? Donnie? Bam? Your team needs you.

in addition to missing Cole and Reaves, why did we break up the Hagelin - Malkin - Rust line?

Those guys were scoring 50 goals a game, and we break them up?

Fucking retarded


Because prior to Horny going out it was him at RW, and that line was clicking. Seemed like we finally found a home for Horny bc Sid hates playing with him.

That line's success was more about Hags/Geno doing great work together regardless who was on the RW. But I could see Sully's reasoning:

Line 1: Can't play Horny w/ Sid
Line 3: I want Kessel carrying that line

So by default he put him on line 2 with Geno. Well ok, but the domino was Rust going with Sid where they blow ass together

I think we're gonna see Geno and Kessel back together (which is fine)

So that means
Sheary - Brassard - Horny

Which is fine too, but I think Rust and Geno work best.

I've always loved the Geno/Kessel combo....those fuckers always yelling at each other in between scoring goals.

I'm the poster SteelerFury deserves, but not the one it needs right now.

They just recalled Simon so hopefully he is in the lineup instead of one of the stiffs at the fourth line wing.

Your tombstone is going to read(among many other sports thoughts) 'The Pens never gave Sprong a real chance'.

I agree with these lines. Bring Sprong up! Put him with the captain. Tell him sink or swim. If he sinks, he's gonna be shipped out!

Sheary: 22 points in 62 games. 51.7 corsi, -3, OPS
Sprong: 3 points in 8 games. 63.2 corsi, +2,

I'm still trying to figure out why Sprong was sent down.

Have you thought of blaming Todd Haley?

Except they have done that now-what 3 or 4 times?

I think it is simple, Sully doesn't trust him.

Sullivan, on occasion will bench a player mid game and usually it is for a part of the period. Last time Sprong felt the ire of Sullivan was on the West coast trip where Sprong was benched the entire third period then promptly sent down to WBS when they got home.
They keep calling up Simon and ZAR has stuck around for a good while.

I wish they would give him a longer chance but the coaching staff and maybe Rutherford don't think that highly of him or his game all around.

They play the same freaking system at WBS, where is their best offensive player, right? This makes no sense. I think it more likely that Sully is in love with Knuckle, Rowney, Simon, Sheary. I mention Sheary specifically because it sure looks like his play has gone stale. I can make an argument that he’s less valuable than even Kuhnackl or Rowney right now.

Whatever. I’m done hoping for Sprong.
