This makes me happy. It's bad enough seeing Beiber wearing a Pens jersey,

Me too.

Is this the first time the second Pens PP unit has been actually good?

This isnt a troll post, or something to upset the masses ...however:

This is a 100% true story.

Seems the Pens got their long-awaited 3rd line center. Sheahan from Detroit for Wilson and a 5th rounder.

I don't get it.


Not the whole goals for and against differential, which is slightly alarming (although it's early, yet).


Not just starting Murray over DeSmith last night, even though Murray played the night before.

Not just throwing DeSmith to the wolves with a minute or 2 left in the first, instead of letting the period end and starting him in the 2nd.

But now the Pens are sending him back to WBS after one game that was practically decided before he entered it? Poor guy never had a chance.

I don’t think Desmith was every the real #2 anyways. Jarry is the guy. They shouldn’t have played Murray last night though. Not that it was on him entirely.

True. It was debatable on calling up him or Jarry, but they went with the "hot hand" on a small sample size. To that point, DeSmith was statistically doing better.

I don't quite understand Sullivan this year. He's riding his top guys till their wheels fall off, even though his team has played a shitload of hockey in the past couple years. He limits the 4th line's playing time considerably and has played Murray back-to-back nights a couple times, now. I don't get it.

i think one of his plusses when he got the job was that he was the WBS coach. So those guys were 'his' guys and when he called them up when he got the pens spot, he played the shirt out of them. Now, this guys are his first second and third line and he doesn't play the fourth line at all, and I think it's because they're not 'his' guys.

I definitely think that's true to a certain degree, but Kuhnhackl is one of his WBS guys. And at a certain point, he was most likely heavily involved in the decision to trade for both Mckegg and Reaves...you'd think that'd make them "his" guys, rather than the guys he inherited when he first got there.
