    I'm glad Johnson is back up. I think he was workin well with Tank and Geno... I hope now that Godard is out 4-6 weeks, that he gets more chance to get a chemistry.

    I HOPE that Johnson gets a chance with Malkin to see if he can establish a good chemistry.

    Im doing the GDT right now and I have NO ****ing idea what the lineups are. As far as I know Kennedy, Godard and Guerin are out and Conner and Johnson are in BUT, we're short a forward so I'm guessing that Guerin is playing?

    Is this a guess or is it fact?

    I will be sick to my stomach if Conner is on the 4th line while Dupuis skates with Crosby.

    it was on the Pens site under "ottawa preview"

    I agree... Dupuis has no right to be there if Conner is playing

    JFC, Conner has 1 decent game and everyone starts acting like he is some 'diamond in the ruff.'


    There is a reason he is probably going to be a guy that will always bounce back and fourth to the AHL.

    Has Dupuis ever had 1 decent game?

    No one thinks Conner is the second Coming of Teemu Selanne. But the fact is, he is better than Pascal Dupuis.

    Yes, more than Conner. The only argument I could see is that Conner is obviously going to be cheaper. I see no difference in what they bring to the team other than a salary difference.

    That is your merely your opinion, not fact. If that were the case he would've not been cut in September.

    Once Kunitz gets back he will go back to being the winger everyone *****es about on Sid's line.

    That is not necessarily the case...and I know this for fact. with these fringe prospects it is not always performance that gets them to the show. It is sometimes political, and mostly business.

    Oh Come on man... You honestly believe coaches, front office personel, and management would not want their best players suiting up for the team? They'd rather take a chance of losing and having a lesser squad than having a better player in someone else's position because of politics? I don't buy it..

    Then what was his excuse for not cracking a pretty weak Dallas line-up full time in 07-08 and 08-09, and going undrafted?

    There is a reason for this....He's not very good, and he's undersized to boot.
