When Maf'er went down nobody could have predicted that the 3rd string goalie would have come in and been so clutch down the stretch.
Everybody thought Malkin was one of the best but, when crosby went down, did anybody really expect that. Malkin and Conks put the team on their shoulders and carried them to the playoffs
What i'm saying is, the depth this team has is nothing short of impressive, especially on the blue line, Although there isnt a better power play quarterback in the league than Gonch, Does anybody really know what Kris Letang can do back there, does anybody really know what Alex Goligoski will be able to accomplish.
Sydor/Gil are there to add the Veteran leadership that everbody says is so important.
When Mark Eaton was healthy last year, how solid was he, one of the best shot blockers in league. Rob Scuderi has been nothing short of solid every since playing with anyone other than Melichar.
so fear not Pens fans and fellow d-bags, when good teams face adversity, they get through it and are that much better when the starters get back.
We may have lost Gonch and Whitney for what seems like the entire season, we still have what it takes to choke slam the eastern conference untill they return.
When Whitney and Gonch are healthy there will be a tough decision to make regarding the Power play
