I had a really great question to ask the other day and, of course, i cannot remember it at all now that your chat is happening… will you keep these chats going over the summer (just in case I remember)? at least until free agency starts up?
Jason Mackey
2:24
Yep. Very likely. Will probably stop mid-July sometime. Or whenever my bosses make me take some time off.

Thinks to that one guy here we all know Sid like the show Friends, any chance you know what some of his favorite episode are?
Jason Mackey
2:25
No clue.

In your opinion, Penguin fans: Mostly class or class-holes?
Jason Mackey
2:25
Mostly class.

Did you bock my question
Jason Mackey

No.

I'm guessing a split in Nashville. Pens win game 3 because they're well rested. Since Guentzel & Rust moved up to Crosby line, you think Sheary will be scratch?
Jason Mackey
2:25
No way. Sheary will be with Sid. He looked tremendous last night. Kid's getting his confidence back. I'd look for the same lineup as Game 2 on Saturday.

Do you still think Maatta has been the Pens' best defenseman?
Jason Mackey
2:26
It's a low bar, but yes.
Tom in Dallas

With Rinne wilting in the finals, and assuming there is not big comeback, who the candidates for Conn Sym?
Jason Mackey
2:26
I'd say Guentzel ... Murray/Fleury ... and Malkin.
Jake

Jake and the fatman was a TV drama from 1987 and 1992, anyways your allegiance to Jake the Snake is admirable, good Jake rankings.
Jason Mackey
2:26
Thanks, Jake.

Why don't you think the Pens have been playing with the same speed, sticks, and execution as last yesr'r run? Injuries, fatigue, more players having a down season or something else?
Jason Mackey
2:27
I'm not sure I know what you're talking about. Are you saying they haven't been as dominant as last year? I think Letang has a lot to do with that.

Do you think it is funny or lame when chat participants try to mock another participant?
Jason Mackey
2:27
I would prefer that nobody mocks anyway. We're all here to have a good time. No reason for anyone to be mean.

If the Pens win the cup again. I think MM should really win the conn smythe but my guess is it will be agent. Agree?
Jason Mackey
2:28
Agent? I think it's tough because he didn't play the entire postseason.
Pope

Who is your Conn Smythe winner if the Pens win the cup? Malkin leads in points, Guentzel leads in goals and Sid has been overall the best in my opinion.
Jason Mackey
2:28
I would go Guentzel at this point, but I want to find out if Fleury-Murray is possible.

What forward matchups do you think nashville will employ with last change?
Jason Mackey
2:29
Not quite sure. Honestly, haven't paid a ton of attention to matchups in this series. I should.

Hi Jason,

Hi Sammy.

What do you do to get the PP rolling again? I get nervous every time Phil has the puck because it seems very easy for Nashville to get it from him and throw it down the ice. I'd like to see it on the half-wall where Geno and Sid set up more because they're harder to shake from the puck. Nashville's very aggressive on their kill but it seems almost too easy when Phil's got the puck.
Jason Mackey
2:29
Simplify. Shoot the puck. Those are the two biggest things for me.
Dwayne PghGuy

Sheetz, Getgo or Subway for a MTO sandwich?
Jason Mackey
2:29
GetGo.
Dwayne PghGuy

Favorite pizza place in the Pittsburgh area?
Jason Mackey
2:29
Fiori's.

last year's team was a buzz saw in the playoffs. This year they look like they are playing rope-a-dope half the time. When the penguins skate like they can the predators just can't stay with them. Do you think it's injuries, or just being tired after back-back finals and running the gauntlet through the metro teams.
Jason Mackey
2:32
It could be injuries -- Letang. It could be none of the above. It could be the opposing team. It could be a lot of factors. I don't know if I'm comfortable picking just one.

Some athletes turn musicians or release music while their playing… who on the pens could you see releasing something (whether or not they're a good musician or it would be good music)?
Jason Mackey
2:33
Murray is the only one with any of musical chops.
Tom in Dallas

I know there has been complaints about Chris K's contract this year, but based on the hits, assists and goals he have had in recent weeks, seems like he's earning his paycheck during the playoffs. It's good he's on the team.
Jason Mackey
2:34
I think if Kunitz made $1-$2 million, people would be a lot more accepting of what he does.
