The results continue to roll in.  Every week the fans wait for the switch to be flipped, for it all to click.  Instead, the Penguins start looking more and more limp.  And this is the problem.  The Penguins are broken.

Bottom Six Bottom Line

The Penguins top six is, when healthy, one of the better top six in the league.  Having Malkin and Crosby alone make this the case.  Add in healthy Perron, Kunitz, Hornqvist and Bennett (please stop laughing) and you have the makings of one of the best top six in the NHL.  The bottom six?  Well... there in lies the rub.

Metro Pothole or Major Problem?

Sunday, bloody Sunday took on a new meaning on the 19th.  As the Rangers thumped the Penguins 5-2, it marked the official first real panic of the new era in Penguins hockey.  It summed up an issue that had been dwelling, and continued into Tuesday night.  The Penguins are good. The Metro might be better.
