Penguins' Therrien will shake up lines tonight vs. Rangers
Monday, January 05, 2009
By Dave Molinari, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

NEW YORK -- Coach Michel Therrien said today he believes the Penguins can be successful with their current collection of players, but that won't prevent him from changing the roles of some for tonight's game against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden.

Winger Miroslav Satan, who does not have a goal in eight games, has been demoted to the fourth line, where he will work alongside Dustin Jeffrey and Eric Godard, and defensemen Alex Goligoski and Hal Gill apparently will be healthy scratches.

Therrien confirmed that defensemen Mark Eaton and Philippe Boucher, who sat out the Penguins' 6-1 loss to Florida Saturday at Mellon Arena, will play this evening, but declined to indentify who they would replace. Gill and Goligoski, however, remained on the ice for extra work after the game-day skate, as did winger Tim Wallace.

The other lines at the Penguins' game-day skate were: Pascal Dupuis-Sidney Crosby-Tyler Kennedy, Ruslan Fedotenko-Evgeni Malkin-Petr Sykora and Matt Cooke-Jordan Staal-Max Talbot.

Therrien said the No. 1 power-play unit that debuted against the Panthers will remain intact tonight. It features Kris Letang and Ryan Whitney on the left and right points, respectively, with Malkin, Crosby and Kennedy up front.

The Penguins have not scored a man-advantage goal in six consecutive games.

Now that's called sending a message.  At this point, I would try and trade him even though I doubt there are organizations out there dumb enough to want this guy.  It's not like we are going to resign him after this year is over, we might as well attempt to get something for him.  At least attempt to save some face with that idiotic signing.

And that is just pathetically sad.  You have the best playmaker in the game playing in between Pascal Dupuis and Tyler Kennedy.  Neither player has ever scored over twenty goals in a season.  That's what we have playing next to one of our superstars.  What a joke.

Rangers hand the Penguins a fifth straight loss.  4-0 loss.

Couldn't have said it better. I'm at a loss for words. This team routinely gets out-worked, out-hustled, out-coached and outright out-played every time they take the ice. The entire team looks lost and confused. On the bright side, Satan and Fedotenko shoud be feeling right at home with all of the losing.

Yep. This team is playing some very uninspired hockey.

Fedotenko is out 4-6 weeks with a broken hand after cracking Armstrong in the nose.  One of the very few players on this roster who was actually producing over the month of December and early January.

Great.
