The Pens training camp started this past Saturday and Sunday was their first on the ice. No real changes were seen except for Tyler Kennedy playing alongside Evgeni Malkin and Ruslan Fedotenko. With Max Talbot out of the line-up for a month or so, a spot on the second line is open. Tyler Kennedy is known for being a part of the infamous “Sesame Street line” along with Jordan Staal and Matt Cooke. The third line was very clutch during the finals month of the season as well as the playoffs. At times it seemed the third line was working the hardest. Though Tyler Kennedy deserves a chance to play alongside Geno, why fix something that isn’t broken? Pascal Dupuis, Craig Adams are just some of the other candidates that could possible fill Max’s spot even Eric Tangradi could have shot. Tangradi looked real good on the ice last night for the Pens first pre-season game. He was all over the ice - throwing checks and getting on loose pucks.
Should Tyler Kennedy get a chance even if it is only for a month or two?
If not Kennedy, what player would like to see with Geno and Tenk?
