I think with the Wings missing two key guys and the way Columbus has been playing lately, the Pens probably fear the Jackets more than the Wings.

Franzen will never NOT be lazy.  In all honesty, putting my never ending hatred for him aside, there is no forward out there that is less important to this team right now and is as useless...

 

On the D, you can argue Kindl and Q, but the D is a-whole-nother entity.  Franzen, right now, can be described as the worst forward on this team and it will only get worse with each coming year.  Trade him this June.

 

That being said, I hope he is the scratch tonight.  It is of 0 advantage to have him out there.... (of course I am hoping that all this talk, makes him start another streak of scoring so I can enjoy the crow.)

Not everyone. Some people will always be negative lol. But I'm with the wings can beat the pens crowd, not planning the parade yet but hey anything can happen

 

I guess my point was that "public opinion" (around here and league-wide) is pretty much as you'd expect it to be, the one noteworthy exception being that most people here believe we're fully capable of knocking off one of the top two seeds in the first round. If memory serves (and it's certainly possible that it doesn't), we were much more worried about the Ducks last season than we are about the Penuins now.

 

League-wide, I think hockey fans generally hold the Wings in high regard.

And a team that's won 5 of its last 6 isn't playing well lately?

We needed Legwand.  We will not miss Jarnkrok.

 

 

Legwand with points tonight! Let's go Wings!

The Wings have been playing well, but so have the Jackets and they are not missing their top forward and their second-best defenceman. Plus CBJ is a pretty physical team. I'm not saying the Pens shouldn't fear the Wings, I'm saying I think if they had to choose one or the other they would rather meet the Wings, mostly (but not solely) because of the injury situation.

I guarantee the Pens want the Jackets. They won the regular season series 5-0. The Jackets have never won a playoff game. The Jackets have been winning, but so have the Wings.

 

The Wings are scarier on almost every level.

I think for playoff purposes, PIT wants the Jackets and we want Bos and NEITHER BOS nor PIT want Detroit.   As long as we get our 1 point, I kind of hope we drop to 8th to play BOS in the first round. Only kind of though.  It would be nice to pull the upset over PIT as well! More satisfying than upsetting Boston that's for sure! Especially after 2009's Bettman Cup.

Part of that might be Malkins injury, Pavels return and Fleurys postseason habits. ;)

I don't know if it's blind faith or what, but I always have this feeling, when playing the Hawks, Pens, and Bruins- that we'll end up winning.

Can't wait for this game! I hope neither team disappoints and it's a good game. Here's to Goose having a game and Mule & Dats chipping in too! At least a point please :)

I'll say the same thing the last time we played these guys: I hate Pittsburgh and I hope everyone on the team gets Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Go Wings! Get it done! TONIGHT!
