Default Re: The Pens!!!!

No doubt the team is playing much better with the new staff. I like Edzo as a person and as a commentator but he was not a very good coach. I was not in favor of all the free agent signings because before the lockout at the end there we started playing very well. But i do think that a few signings were ok, I liked Palffy and Gonchar because i think you do need some veteran presence and even recci was ok but we played all these young guys for a whole year in anticipation of the lockout but now we dont get to see the just reward in their growth. I think someone who has been really held down is Malone who now that his leadership role has been taken away has clearly regressed. I think they just need to get a solid plan in place in follow it. Fleury is your number one goalie, and build the D around Whitney. The offense having Crosby and eventually Malkin will take care of itself
