Interesting stats through the first 18 games of the season:
--Maxime Talbot has more goals (4) than Mark Recchi and Jordan Staal do combined (3).
--Gary Roberts has as many blocked shots as I do, I haven't played a NHL game.
--Georges Laraque only has 1 fighting major.
--Jordan Staal has a +/- of -8, worst on the team. This is tied for 8th in the entire league. Not the type of green jacket you want.
--The Penguins are only 16th in the league in Goals For (2.7 a game). As you will re-call, some moron back in September predicted 3.54 goals a game.
