With 9 points (2G, 7 A) in 16 regular season games with the Penguins, many feel that a guy of his caliber should be more productive for this team. But are they taking the wrong look at Poni? A player with an average of 20 goals a season over his NHL career shows that he is more of a set up man rather than a shooter. He played on a team drenched in talent with guys like Malkin and Crosby, and as we saw with Satan, the more stars on a team the fewer to points each will produce, especially wingers. Another question was about how he was used. He was used as a shooter on the Penguins PP, but with a body that big, why not use him to screen? I understand with his salary he may not be the best long term investment, but i really don't believe you can assess a guy based on 16 games. I hope to see Poni for one more year to see just exactly what talent he has.

What was so great about this game? Was it the first goal of the season for Crosby and Sykora? Another PP goal by Satan? Malkin's 200th point? Sid's 100th goal and 300th point? Or was it the first win in regulation this season for the Pens? For me, it was the whole damn thing. What a game. The penalty killing was great. The power play was amazing. And the Pens actually looked like a hockey team. I love this kinda game that the Pens play. Keep it up boys!
