    GDT: Penguins @ Senators - Nov 16, 2017, 7:30pm

    Post by wprager on Thu Nov 16, 2017 9:12 am

    A Sens Game. A Trap Game. Ere the sun rises!

    Ryan, in his interview with Mendes, yesterday, mentioned "trap" and "let-down" at least two times. Those returning from Sweden aren't yet back to their routine sleep/play cycles and those who are rejoining the team (by all accounts both Ryan and Boro are ready to go) aren't in game shape. This could get ugly in a hurry.

    On the other hand the Penguins are third worst in the league at combined team +/- thanks to being blown out a number of times in-between winning some close games.

    So, chances are we will see a blow-out game tonight.

    Ryan and Duchene have been skating together since Matt was 17, never mind the 10 year gap since then. Hopefully the two develop some chemistry in a hurry.

    Anderson will be in goal. Assuming Murray in for the Pens.

    This is not a trap game.

    I expect a fine effort against the Penguins tonight. The game against Arizona this weekend might be more of a problem.

    The Pens have been all over the map this season, so its hard to know what to expect from them. Hopefully someone runs Crysby into Murray and ends both their careers.

    Looking forward to this one. Here's to hoping our top two lines score 4-5 on Murray tonight.

    I still think Pageau ends up playing with Duch and Ryan at some point tonight. I guess we'll see what happens.

    I'd love to see Pageau with Ryan and Duchene.

    I honestly consider Pageau as a top six player. He's proven that he can score big goals and elevates his game when playing with good players.

    problem is, I bet Boucher loves him as a C.

    Pageau is a great centre and should be left at centre. His work ethic, physicality, and terrific defense are exactly what you want from a C.

    I agree but there's no denying his ability and chemistry with Ryan. And Duchene/Ryan may need a more defensively responsible forward on their line

    If you were to ever put a line with those three guys youd probably have Pageau centering it.
    But still, Ill keep him on the 3rd line.

    I thought we might win looking at the first. Duchene was all over the place. He looked like he wanted his first goal. Oh well. Arizona won tonight so maybe they dont come in really funning for a win. We should have this on Saturday.
