@Redacted_66 At least it's only for 1 year, so if he turms out to be shit, we can always not re-sign him.

@rderr27 Probably. I still miss Test Tube...
As soon as I read saw this my response was to proclaim out loud; "Oh, no no, no! Why?!"
But then again, that would be my reaction to the signing of any non-Penguin I dislike.
@iacas His last act as a Penguins was to fuck the Caps. Nice.

Hmm. So Neal is traded and Niskanen will most likely walk while Goligoski is starring in Dallas. So who won that trade?

@rudiad He did let in that one goal that really wasn't his fault so therefore he sucks and needs to be traded.

@firefox91 I would love nothing more than to be emblazoned on the Interwebz forever while making my O-face or picking my nose. Especially if the caption was that one line from Ozymandias; "Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
The Pens do so great during the season and then implode during the playoffs. It hurts me to say this, but the Pens have become Boudreau's Caps.
Also, Dan calling the team out like he did is years too late.

Half-expecting more of the same. Jackets figure out how to defend against Bylsma's game plan & Bylsma refusing to adapt.
8 months ago on Conversation @ http://thepensblog.com/
Unless #Pens make Finals, I think Dan Bylsma & his coaching staff should be fired after the playoffs end. Their inability/unwillingness to adapt when opposition figures Bylsma out has gone from staggering to expected. Failure should not be formulaic. It's been 6 years since the team won a Cup & Bylsma was just along for the ride.
Hmm. Didn't "kick the tires and light the fires" get shot down? Anyway, Pens should easily handle Bob Ross and the Blue Jackets; I don't expect Bylsma's inability to coach, Fleury's playoff yips, and the bottom 6 being unable to score causing any problems until midway through round 2.

@MulletKing I saw that. It was quite the thing to see. He is the greatest player on Earth right now. I don't even think Gretzky would've been able to do that let alone tried.
I think the play with the overturned net would have gotten blown dead as soon as the Pens touched the puck if the ref didn't get the net resettled quickly enough. I swear a similar thing happened last year in a Caps game where the opposing coach was pissed when the caps scored while the Caps' net was overturned.
It's somewhere in the rulebook.
@Rage Toss Malkin in too so we can get a second round pick instead.

Man, this probably spells doom for Boychuk's career if he doesn't take off in Nashville. I'd assume a guy who was waived twice in a shortened season and can't perform at the NHL level is probably persona non grata if he doesn't take off somewhere.

@CammieBuckeye I was mad they jumped to commercial during play and were showing that Gamecenter commercial with the footage of him doing that last season. Took me a few seconds to realize they hadn't screwed up and gone to commercial, Malkin just actually just shoved deja vu down our throats by doing the same exact shit on a different fucking day.
@themadgermanic At least he's not spraying the ice girls. Though the tabloid coverage of Potash's sexual deviancy would be epic.
It almost seems as if the Penspoints team was using February as a live beta-test for their jingoistic program.
After everything the Pens do for the fans, why did they come up with an ultra-exclusive program for "everybody" that caters to mostly in-Pittsburgh season ticket holders?

@j-nine That wouldn't be too hard. There are only like 6 episodes. Damn British TV with their flamboyantly tiny "series" of TV series. (THEY'RE CALLED SEASONS GODDAMNIT!)
Too bad Cummerbund and Freeman are busy shooting other things and we'll have to wait for like 3 years for 3 more episodes.
@j-nineI'm sure they do, but there would not be wailing and gnashing of teeth from them if he cut it to improve his game.
Staff's right, Letang should get a fucking haircut. His hair is like a huge parachute that slows him down and he trips over every so often. It's probably grown into his brain as well, stifling his creativity. I don't give a shit about his puckbunny fans being upset (real female fans would give no shits as long as his play improved).
Yesterday's game was so bizarre. Why did Letang all of the sudden forget to play defense? Why the hilariously undisciplined play during the second? (I knew the Panthers were going to go powerplay goal happy when Steiggy would not shut his fat fucking mouth about how bad they were)
I still have one of the Florida 5-on-3(ish) powerplay goals playing in my head. Did Letang forget we were still on the PK when Cooke vacated the box? Instead of dumping that bitch when he had the chance, he tries to tap it to Cooke at center, but it's intercepted by the Panther who was right there. Did he seriously think the guy wouldn't intercept that?
Why does it take Vokoun longer to get back up than the dick of a guy with ED?
