Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Monday Wakeup Call: The easiest call of all

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media

Morning, Lunatics …


>> The Monday column considers the debate between Tomas Vokoun and Marc-Andre Fleury and dismisses it before I’m even a third of the way through.

How do you feel about it?

Even if you agree with Vokoun, do you turn back to Fleury at the first sign of failure?

Would that be fair to Vokoun?

>> The third episode of The Final Word also took on Vokoun/Fleury, as well as other topics related to Pens-Sens and a segment on the Pirates’ bullpen.

We hope you like the show, and we welcome all feedback.

>> If you happened to miss our coverage from Game 6 in Sunday’s paper, this was my column on the Islanders’ effect on the Penguins going forward, this was the game story by Rob Rossi, and this was a look at the history with Ottawa by Joe Starkey.

>> I don’t care how much this sounds like company-man talk, but our Rob Biertempfel had at least as good a weekend in New York as his subject matter. Much good stuff – real detailed, ask-questions-to-learn-more type of reporting — to be found with his byline.

>> I’ll visit with TribLIVE Radio’s Ken Laird and Guy Junker at 11:30 a.m.
