    You are supposed to measure your team against the best teams in your division. They got embarrassed two games in a row, at home. The odd-man breaks, open nets, total lack of defense, two goals a game is alarming. They practically have all of their men back and they seem a lot worse. Maybe they need time to gel, but it will be on the golf course, if a fire is not lit under some arses really soon. Sully and the players keep saying the right things, but it's not generated on the ice. Listening to the 3rd period sounded like CAR were on the ice by themselves. The Pens radio team was embarrassed. How do you think the fans feel?

    Gosh I can't imagine paying good money to go see that! Losing is easy to take when you give 100% and fail. It's easy to take when you know your team doesn't have any talent. The Pens have plenty of that. If you just break it down to being professional in your job(it doesn't matter what job) it's really unacceptable to offer up a product like that to paying customers.


    That's my 2

    My co-worker has season tickets with his family and they take turns going to games. He said he is done for the regular season after yesterday. He's gone to eight games and they have won one. I tried blaming him for their losses, but it's really not funny anymore.

    We go to about 20-25 games a year. Just like the Steelers, not all games are great. The Pens have made the playoffs for 13 straight years. Even at the bad games, we still have fun. It's a night out and usually some good hockey. Hockey is a great sport live, TV misses so much away from the puck.

    The Pens will make the Playoffs this year. I doubt they will go deep. So many issues that need addressed. Like any sport, get into the playoffs and anything can happen.

    Losing 8-10 is inexcusable for a team with this core. The door is slamming shut. I've enjoyed the Crosby/Malkin era just like I enjoyed the Lemieux era. Hell, I lived through the 80's with the Pens and will continue to go.

    He is not going to anymore games, but his family still will go. I went to two games this year and they are tremendous seats. I'm 2-0, btw. . .

    Quote of the day

    "Crosby struggled mightily against Carolina, is a career-worst minus-8 and is an unfathomable minus-17 in 19 road games this season." (Yohe).

    I'll add in Justin Schultz. at -14. He hasn't been right in 2 seasons. Injuries suck but it is what he has become.

    Pens pull off a solid college signing. Drew O'Connor another big forward. If he pans out, add him to Poulin and Legare. 3 big forwards in the pipeline.

    That's one thing I really like about listening to Mike and Phil, especially Phil, they don't sugar coat things like they tend to do on the local TV broadcast

    Hopefullly these are the guys of the future.

    Poulin, Legare and now this guy would bring some much needed size.

    They suck again, Spike. If they play up to their capabilities yes they'll make the playoffs. If they continue playing the way they are now, I don't think they will.

    Not at the rate they are going. They are in a free fall right now with no answers in sight. Personally, I don’t think they’ll make the playoffs, but if they do it is going to be an Islander-esque embarrassment.

    Yeah they are a first round team at best.
    The things they tell the media they need to work on are the same mistakes they make

    The third period was a great show. This win belongs to Murray and Geno. A lot of other guys showed up, but those two made it happen.
