ive enjoyed reaves beating several fuckers up !!! for that alone I like it......just maybe his asskicking has shown up in a different manor not on the scoreboard. maybe sid or gino been abused just a bit less.. wasn't this a huge factor in bringing him in?

Reaves hasn't tangibly done much, but it seems like a large grudge to hold against a fourth line forward whose coaches and teammates seem to be reasonably satisfied with, from everything I've heard/read.


Welcome to the Pittsburgh fanbase, where every mole hill is an aspiring mountain!


I'd be willing to bet that in the entire rest of his NHL career, a 14 page thread (and counting) has never been generated about Ryan Reaves, so maybe he should take it as a compliment.

from the Pens P-G beat writer yesterday:

Spend every day around the Penguins, and it’s easy to see how much Crosby loves having Ryan Reaves around.

Not just on the ice, but in the dressing room. Those two joked around for a while Thursday. There’s definitely a friendship there, a funny one.

Reaves isn’t afraid to bust Crosby’s chops a little, especially regarding his superstitions.

Remember when Sid took Suban to the ice and did some facial pounding to the hard service with Suban's face?
Malkin can take care of himself as well-he backs down from no one. Plus, when the dirty shit comes up Geno is more than capable of giving it in return.

yes...but who wants a penalty on either of our superstars?? sid lucky he was not called for his face rubbing..and then hes off ice in big game. right where opposition wants .. sid reacted to multiple cheap shots that happened in that series and every series.. id much rather see reaves clean subans clock when needed while sid laughs and stays on ice. point being maybe reaves merely being there might affect the contact sid -gino and company get that's shady..

This was about an insane desire to be RIGHT about something more than anything else...and I suppose a genuine worry that Rutherford might be departing from "The New Penguin Way" that netted us two Cups.

But as the season has progressed, there is no evidence that Rutherford is departing from the New Penguin Way, so now it's about busting steel's chops every day...and I guess, to some small degree, mine...although God knows for what reason. All I said in my initial comment was that Hacksaw had really sunk to a new low about preaching impending doom and gloom...which, as time has borne out, is dead balls-on true...for now.

True Bam true. But it is nice to know they can take care of themselves when other stars in the NHL will always skate away every time.

I don't know if Reaves presence has diminished the cheap play. It looks to me like Crosby is still fighting through the crap nearly every night. Teams/players don't usually jump Malkin like they do Sid. I think that is because Malkin can be a wicked cheap shot artist when he feels the need. That and teams know he has a penchant for taking penalties after instigation. In that area he has been much better this year.
And I wonder if Reaves will get a jersey once the playoffs start.

Sid and geno won't need to do these things in the playoffs this year with Reaves around
