#1922102 Penguins bashing thread(keep it within the site rules please)

30/30 teams would have picked Crosby and Malkin in the positions they were taken. That's all that I'm saying. It's not because of their amazing scouting that either of the two worked out.


...I don't think that they purposely drafted worse players so that they could stay within the salary cap.


What's so hard to understand that they Penguins are more than a two player team?

You act like the Red Wings got beat by two players or something.

I get that you like them, but it's a joke to say that they are "very well built through great drafting".

They sucked for a loooong time, and got good picks because of it. Anybody could have picked Crosby and Malkin.

And in case you forgot, they picked Jordan Staal ahead of Jonathan Toews, Nicklas Backstrom and Phil Kessel.
They picked Fleury over Eric Staal.

Yeah, that's some world class drafting right there. :lol:


Seemed to work didn't it?

I mean I don't think Chicago/Washington/Boston/Carolina have a Stanley Cup like the great Penguins?

Yeah but just saying it was all a gift etc. is just a terrible excuse.

Top 3 picks aren't gimmes. Alexander Daigle etc.

They've had to deal with a salary cap.

Not too mention Pittsburgh's depth 3rd-4th liners have been some of the best in the league, with very underrated D men (Letang mainly). They are a well built team whether you want to admit it or not.


#1921067 Am I the only one who finds this ridiculous ?

What I find ridiculous is osgood not sitting on the goddamn bench with the team. Everything else is moot.

Why is Mike Babcock not playing Chris Osgood on the second game of a back-to-back ?

This is flatout humiliating for a goaltender of Ozzie's caliber. What is he thinking ?
Babcock is showing once more that he's mediocre at best when it comes to the 'human' side of coaching.
Why would consciously render you second goaltender useless by sitting him thisf****** long ?????
This will backfire someday..

Besides that, I think.. KNOW that Chris Osgood has some wins in him.
Don't treat him like there's sitting some snot nosed college goaltender on the bench.



#1917393 What to do with Osgood next Year?

Posted by mackel on 16 March 2010 - 07:12 PM

I think the savings from a lateral move with regard to the back goalie position would be a good thing. At this stage Osgood is purely a back up and a backup of equal ability can be inked for 500K less a year. That's 500K toward a resigned or new FA.


#1917306 Is Datsyuk a lock for the Selke?

Posted by Carman on 16 March 2010 - 03:35 PM

I'd say Sidney Crosby. Between face-offs and points he's one of the best overall player this season.

Kesler and Datsyuk are far and away the two best though. Still think Datsyuk has an edge, but Kesler is closing in.
