Lucic and Chara give that team insane confidence. Beregeron is a playoff warrior, so is Marchand. Thornton is the best goon in the game cause he can fight and play and he's smart. This team is built for the playoffs, big, tough, young, skilled, can't fucking stand them, but wish they were the Canucks. Krejci is on fire.

Krejci
Lucic
Marchand
Beregeron

RD can you tell me why Marchand wasn't given 5 minutes for that hit while Cooke gets 5 and a game for his?

No bro, just a gentle reminder for those who clam the reason for Mike 'The Cupboards are Bare' Gillis poor drafting record has been his less than desire-able draft positioning, is completely false. Mike 'Anton Rodin' Gillis simply put, has a bum-eye for drafting, not too mention a bum-eye for trading - Ballard, Booth, Bernier and Roy.

Shit happens, doesn't excuse the Penguins ineptitude in Game 1, but can you blame them, the Bruins are a Machine.

RD is right about the Bruins. They are a well oiled machine that is playing every game as a 20 man unit. They crash the net, they move the puck quickly around, they breakout with speed and short passes. If any of their bottom 6 forwards could make a decent offensive zone pass on an odd man rush that game would probably have been 5-0.

That being said, I don't think the current Bruins management drafted all of the players that you named.

Penguins looking like the 2011 Canucks right now. Vokoun and Fleury getting clowned a la Lolongo.

Outside of the crease the Canucks actually looked a lot better than the mighty Pens against these shitbirds. But it's only game 2.

Pens making same mistakes as canucks by trying to outmuscle the Bruins. Washington played it beautifully last year when they skated away from the after whistle BS. I'd equate cookes hit on mcquaid to Rome on Horton. Did nothing but fire the Bruins up and that's when they're at their best.

When the Canucks tried to skate away from the Bruins they got speedbagged and slashed while the refs looked on in satisfaction.

The Bruins aren't actually the ones instigating the after whistle stuff.

Marchand's mouth is always moving, but other than that it is the frustrated Penguins that are acting out and generating the post-whistle scrums.

The Bruins are out playing Pittsburgh is every area. They are out skating them, they are even out-skilling them. Great team play and lots of support on the puck.

The Penguins look like a team of individuals out there. Malkin is brutal for that, the only time I see that guy pass the puck is after he has skated around the outside of the offensive zone and found nothing but a wall of defenders, then he makes a half-ass back pass to the point man as he goes around the top at the blueline during his big circle.

Crosby is weak shit this series, nothing but whining and complaining.

Iginla looks like he wishes he'd made a different choice at the beginning of April.....

I hate Boston, can't stand them. But I must admit I am enjoying the ass kicking they are handing the Pens. I wanted to be able to cheer for the Pens but I just can't. If only they had a goalie!

The Pens' defense corps is pretty shite as well. Letang is awesome offensively but in their own end they look terrible.

Going into the playoffs I said Boston was the team with the fewest weaknesses. They don't have any bona fide superstars up front but they have four deep lines, an awesome goaltender and the best defensive pairing in the league. They're also playoff-experienced, and as we know only too well, tough and physical as hell.

Still waiting for Crawford to shit the sheets in Chi-town...

Certainly is looking like a Boston/Chicago Finals. Things can change I know but neither the Pens nor LA really look that good right now. Both appear to be out classed by a large margin.

LA still has a shot because they haven't lost at home yet, but they are actually dealing with adversity this year. They are definitely not having an injury free post season like last year. Pens looked absolutely silly at home and bylsma is looking about as cooked as AV.

The thing that Pittsburgh has to be the most concerned about is that they were shelled 9-1 over two games AT HOME. The Canucks, as poor as they played in Boston, were strong at home in the six games. The Pens are in much worse shape heading to Boston down 2-0. Their odds of winning 4 of 5 games are terrible. It's too bad... not making for much of a series.

The playbook on the Pens hasn't changed one iota.

1) Frustrate Sid until he becomes a petulant baby and takes himself out of the game by not trusting his teammates trying do too much on his own.

2) Shoot the puck somewhere in the vicinity of the Pens net and let their goaltending do the rest.

Anyone know the Pens record with Sid out (Malkin leading) vs Sid in (Sid leading)?
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
