#2590931 % chance of making the playoffs

Posted by marcaractac on 09 April 2015 - 05:27 PM

As much as I'd love to see the pens not make the playoffs, I've come to the realization lately that I don't want them to have even a 1% chance at McDavid....

So, I vote the Bruins miss because I'd love to see that too. :P


I want them to miss the draft lottery because they traded their first. How amazing would that be?

Ah right, my bad.  But still...they are going to beat the Sabres!

 

I can guarantee you if an injured Pens team has to play a young Sabres team with a playoff spot on the line, the Sabres will absolutely not be an easy loss on that night. That is a team that would LOVE to end their season knocking the Pens out of the playoffs.

Pittsburgh only needs one point to clinch a playoff spot and they play Buffalo in their last game.

 

If Ottawa wins out, Boston wins one more, and the Pens only get one point, the Pens don't make it. We have 97 points and need 2 to clinch. Pens need 3 to clinch. (assuming Ottawa wins out, and Boston doesn't s*** the bed the rest of the way)

Ahahahaha. Suck it, Pens

You guys are crazy. We're playing like complete crap and you want the hottest team in the league to stay in pace with us

 

Yup, because the team the Sens will be 1 point behind (assuming they win tonight) is a team slumping even worst than the Wings. Not worried one bit. In my eyes Boston losing is more important than the Sens losing. By a mile.

If Ottawa makes it I really think it's because we won't

 

If the Sens make it, it will be at the Pens expense. Mark my words. As a Wings fan, my only concern is getting that 3rd spot in the division.

WOO SENS!!!! (hate me all you want. Let the Pens miss the playoffs)

Go Wings! Go Sens! I can wait until Thursday in Montreal to clinch... F*** the Pens!

 

YES! Same thing I have been saying.

I still think it is hilarious some have playoff doubts. IMO the only concern is getting the #3 seed.

Not sure if the possibility has been discussed, but wouldn't it be something if the Pens end up missing the playoffs?  They're also at 95 points right now.  

 

Or would Bettman not let that happen?  

 

The best possible scenario of life is if they were to miss the playoffs because of the Sens, and also by some miracle win the draft lottery after trading away their first round pick.

Happy for Howie tonight. He needed this.

Good God I hate games vs the Wild. Such a snoozefest.




#2588087 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by marcaractac on 02 April 2015 - 07:12 PM

The difference between mrazek's inconsistency and Howard's is that Howard is a vet. What you see is what you get with Howard. The sky is the limit for Mrazek.

Yeah, he is 23. That's what's so excitin. He is only gonna keep getting better. The way he bounces back after a bad start speaks volumes about the kid.


#2587983 Time to move Howard?

Posted by marcaractac on 02 April 2015 - 04:12 PM

No. He needs to steal the jib and leave no doubt first. When we have a season with two clear number ones, our Mrazek just absolutely clearly and consistently becoming the better goalie, then move Howard.

Sending Mrazek down to learn to be consistent is also a backwards option. He is dominant at the ahl leve. He can only learn at the the nhl level at this point. Hence why I think he should start in the playoffs if he finishes the season strong. For that experience.

Posted by marcaractac on 01 April 2015 - 07:19 PM

I agree about Howard. As for Mrazek, it depends on your definition of "huge." If you subtract the games in which he's been pulled, his stats are unreal, which leads me to conclude that it is lack of consistency that is holding him back.

 

That will come with experience. I do think his stellar play is a much better indicator of the goalie he will be than the starts he has been pulled.

 

People need to remember how bad Howard was at first. It was painful. But the more he played, the better he got, and then stole the #1 job. I have no doubt Mrazek can do the same.
