The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step (Or a good left hook)

Like everyone else, I’m assuming that the Penguins will add Dustin Jeffrey, Eric Tangradi and Joe Vitale to the starting lineup tonight to replace the suspended Craig Adams, James Neal and Aaron Asham. Anyone else like me that thinks Stave McIntyre would be a better addition than Tangradi?

    I think Bylsma should take a page from Babcock’s book. Let the defensive players shoot the puck in. Maybe some rebounds or icing, putting the puck in ‘-front -‘of the net. Letang & Niskanen. And 3 ,4,5 goals win games.Defense!!!

    Maybe we could stick MacIntyre in the slot in front of Marc-Andre Fleury. That should discourage the Flyers from venturing anywhere near our net. (Just a little stab at humor.)

    On a more serious note, since none of the Flyers are likely to challenge “Big Mac” (I doubt if they’ll dress Jody Shelley) I don’t know how much value he’d be. He’d certainly serve as a reassuring presence, and that might help settle his teammates down and allow them to concentrate on hockey. And I actually thought he played reasonably well (for a heavyweight) in the season finale.

    Still, I can’t imagine that Dan Bylsma would use him for more than a shift or two. Plus, there’s always a chance that Jeffrey, Tangradi or Vitale might score a big goal.

    On a side note, I didn’t want to get caught up in yesterday’s range war. But I applaud your comments.
