Penguins looking better early on than I think they even looked in the playoffs last season.

That third line is killer. Staal, TK and Cooke. Love them - my favorite line.

10-2 to start the seson better than I expected.

However, with Talbot already out a few months, Gonchar out 4-6 weeks and now Malkin going down for 2-3 weeks, this team is starting to resemble the 2009 Mets.

This is when the depth comes in handy, but eventually it'll run out if guys keep dropping like flies.

Those injuries to the Pens are huge. I would be worried but so far they are handling them well. I don't think Crosby can lead this team alone tho

Hopefully they get Malkin back with 2 weeks.

They're also missing Tyler Kennedy who is a huge part of the team and brings a lot of energy.

They looked really bad last night, but on the other hand the Kings looked great. They actually play a similar game to the Penguins. Lots of good young players on that team.

Jordan Staal needs to get it going offensively in the absence of some top players.

The injuries are getting crazy now.

Malkin
Gonchar
Letang
Kennedy
Talbot

The next 2 weeks are going to be tough without over 25% of your players. Reminding me of the Mets this season. Plus I think Crosby is hurting - or at least struggling big time.

Since Gonchar and Letang went down, the Pens have also lost Orpik, Goligoski, and now McKee defensively. That's crazy.

And they're most fragile defenseman, Mark Eaton, is now their #1 guy.

Gonchar is looking like he'll be back tomorrow and Max Talbot should be back tomorrow or Saturday. At least none of these injuries are long term deals and the hope is that by the first or second week of December they have a full deck of cards. But the way someone new drops everyday, that's hard to hope for.
