Josh Yohe and I don’t necessarily agree on the merits of the Penguins’ performance Tuesday night in blanking the Canucks:

I don’t think that this team will return to the great levels of defense of last year until Letang returns to the elite level he was playing last year. He has always been the cornerstone of the Pens defense…I think that the workload he has endured is catching up to him…Play him less minutes and save him for the playoffs…

I was not impressed with the pens performance against the Canucks either. This is a very bad team that had they scored on Murray when the game was close would have made a game of this. They were injury depleted and have very little depth yet still had some quality scoring chances. It is a good thing that Murray was in net because they could have easily lost with Fleury in. I am very hopeful that GMJR trades Fleury soon. I think it is preventing the Pens from becoming a cohesive unit.
I also wonder why Crosby has changed his game back to a pass first mentality. He is passing up great scoring opportunities to try and make the perfect play. He should be more selfish. Let’s see how the pens play against the Blue jackets this coming Friday before we anoint their return to great defence.

If they get rid of Marc Andre Fleury who’s going to be the backup goalie and case Matt Murray wood get injured

Indeed Murray seems to be rounding into the form we expect. Friday will not just be a test for the defense, but also to see if Murray is really back to where he needs to be. He will get tested for sure. I am a big fan of his, so I am hopeful he’ll do well. Not sure they can or should trade MAF just yet, unless GMJR gets an offer he can’t refuse. The insurance may be necessary though in an ideal world, they’ll ride Murray and have no need for MAF to play too much (I don’t admittedly have huge faith in him). Guess we’ll see.
