I think the jersey for Reaves in the playoffs depends on the team and the game. I look at the Craps with The Subhuman Tom Wilson, the Torts-led Blue Jobs and the Cryers, and I think in some of those situations, you might see Reaves.

Against a skill team like Tampa, or maybe someone eventually out of the West, you add skill and speed to the mix instead. The fact that Reaves can skate enough to work a regular shift (unlike somebody like Sestito) gives them a little more flexibility as to when and how they are able to use him.

The fact that he's a positive locker room presence is a big plus, no matter where, when or how long he plays.

ive enjoyed reaves beating several fuckers up !!! for that alone I like it......just maybe his asskicking has shown up in a different manor not on the scoreboard. maybe sid or gino been abused just a bit less.. just a thought.


from the Pens P-G beat writer yesterday:

Spend every day around the Penguins, and it’s easy to see how much Crosby loves having Ryan Reaves around.

Not just on the ice, but in the dressing room. Those two joked around for a while Thursday. There’s definitely a friendship there, a funny one.

Reaves isn’t afraid to bust Crosby’s chops a little, especially regarding his superstitions.


http://www.post-gazette.com/sports/peng ... 1802190104

What's with the yinzers and smiles? Jesus, I'd hate to see the collective orgasm of Pittsburgh if there were ever a competition between Fleury's smile and a Ryan Reaves standup. Sadly, smiles aren't an official hockey statistic.


Because you can't handle or believe any statistical analysis that proves contrary to Reaves being an effective hockey player (I shouldn't single you out, everyone here was dead wrong), I counter your puff piece with another. And mine didn't cost a first round pick.


https://www.sbnation.com/lookit/2016/4/ ... igns-stick


Ya'll are practicing a bit of a fit in insanity here.

First it was "Reaves can actually play. He's going to score XX amount goals here. He will also protect the stars."

Reaves hasn't really done that. In fact, he's failed to do that. In one of the biggest games of the year, Reaves stood by idle while Letang got pounded in the face. He did not make his presence known after that to let the Capitals know it wasn't going to happen again. What are the chances the Penguins play the Capitals in the playoffs?

http://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/2233 ... ody-injury
https://www.russianmachineneverbreaks.c ... is-letang/

Now it's
"Well, don't worry. He'll be there for Sid and the stars in the playoffs. THEN is when he'll stop it. Sure. Right? I mean for sure he will!"

Do you think Reaves will be useful in the playoffs with 5 minutes of ice time? How can you be a deterrent on the Penguins bench. Surely, his skills and production in past playoff series will be useful for this team.
36 games
1 goal
0 assists
1 point
-2

Oh.

Instead of being concerned as to how the 4th line will manage to not be scored on at will in the playoffs, ya'll are worried about salvaging some sort of semblance of being right. Why? Maybe because you like the guy? I like the guy, too. I liked Fleury, but facts were facts with him for the majority of his career. I'm sure Hunwick is a great guy, too. In fact, unless you're someone like Tyler Seguin, most hockey players are great guys.

All I said in my initial comment was that Hacksaw had really sunk to a new low about preaching impending doom and gloom...which, as time has borne out, is dead balls-on true...for now.

Four minutes after I posted that. Yikes. There's a camp out in the thread, boys! Then again, you've posted here a good 22,000+ times to my 700. This is pretty much your life's work. You'd think you'd be better at it! Sadly, I've pumped out more valuable info and original thought in my 700 to your 20,000. Hahahaha.

At least you don't send me creepy private messages about how young I am like Bethsteel. Please don't start doing that.

In Beth's defense, he's not only a certifiable tinfoil Patriots hater, but also a Cryers fan, so I'm not sure other unusual/abnormal behavior is completely unexpected.

I have this sneaking suspicion that Reeves will be Sid's Jay Caufield.

2/23/18: Ryan Reaves is a healthy scratch.

In my original posts in this great Ryan Reaves thread, I emphasized the importance of keeping a team identity of 4 scoring lines. Here's a tid bit of that.
Quote:
4th line scoring isn't important? Oh, you mean it is for the Penguins? It's their identity? Tom Kuhnackl 7 points in 36 playoff games the last two years. Cullen 15 points in 49 playoff games the last two years. "Cullen took some penalty killing minutes and was able to go up and down the lineup! Unfair!" A diverse, versatile player as a 4th liner who isn't glued to 1 position?!?! Crazy, right?



To begin another thread, retard steel posted an "awesome article" from Mark Madden. Here's some quotes from that.

Quote:
But Ryan Reaves isn't a goon. He's a big body who's good with his knuckles but also a decent skater who can play hockey just well enough.

It mostly doesn't matter who the fourth-line right wing is, especially on a star-laden team where the top guys get mega-minutes.


Tonight, after the trade (in principal) was announced for Brassard. Jason Mackey was on Mark's show. Mackey said there was no place in the Penguins lineup for Reaves and that he could become a trade target for a team out west.

Mark Madden responded

Quote:
With how much offense this team has on each line now, there's no need for a guy like Reaves.


Oh.

I'm glad the Pittsburgh media finally caught up to my thinking.


How many years will it take the retard?

Jim Rutherford had a pretty crappy summer in 2017. Trading for Ryan Reaves, signing Matt Hunwick to a three-year extension, and not doing much for center depth made for a long offseason. That doesn't even account for the players that they had to walk away from (rightly so).

Well, that is just a distant memory right now. Jim Rutherford and his staff have done a great job at amending those mistakes. The Pittsburgh Penguins not only rid themselves of one of their summer errors, but totally revamped their center position which hasn't been this good since Jordan Staal left back in 2012. The Penguins now have Derick Brassard

It's good to see Reaves having success with the Knights in the western conf finals -- It's too bad Sully couldn't figure out how to use him - he would've helped against the Craps

He works better in the West, but "better" isn't really saying much.

He's being used the same, either a healthy scratch or 5-7 minutes a night.

Was cool to see him get a timely goal to at the end of the WCF, but he simply is what he is. He doesn't score and his role as an agitator isn't a requirement to win in the league. He's a 7 minute a night 4th liner who only works in one conference. He has three playoff points in 44 games. That's not what the Penguins are. Then again, what Kuhnackl and Rowney do isn't what the Penguins are either, but they weren't traded for a 1st round pick.

I like how Reaves' physical presence has really knocked the Capitals off their game...

Ryan Reaves scratched. Wouldn't that be a fitting end to this thread? Ryan Reaves in the press box for the last game of the season.

By the way, it sure would have been nice for the Penguins to have some sort of...I don't know..secondary scoring these playoffs.

Present day
May 21, 2018

By Jason Mackey

Quote:
As the Penguins face a longer offseason than they’ve grown accustomed to, a pair of needs have bubbled to the surface for general manager Jim Rutherford.

They include getting more balanced production from all four lines and adding a defenseman — ideally right-handed — to bolster their third pairing.


Quote:
“I think we will probably look at getting a little more balance throughout the whole lineup,” Rutherford said. “We want to make sure we have the four lines that can produce. We may be able to do that from within, depending on how it gets structured.”


Quote:
“Our fourth line, maybe until the last few games of the playoffs, we could never totally get comfortable with it,” Rutherford said. “We couldn’t get a fourth line that could create enough.”



oh my goooooddddddddddd. nooooooooooooo wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. whooooooooo couldddddd haveeeeee knoowwwnnnn????
