Paying enough for NHL center ice.  Probably enough, seeing as a home game would require a 6 hour drive, hotel, in addition to rising ticket prices.

I know I'm in the minority, but PLEASSSSSE no return of mustard yellow.  Painful to look at that.

@Hibbits Can't trade Scuderi just because the fans want to.  You have to find someone willing to take on that contract.  But Shero's gone, so if Scuderi's performance on the ice is as abysmal as it was in the playoffs, there shouldn't be any reason to keep him out of the press box.  We'll have to wait and see.

They "plucked" Reirden from Pittsburgh?  Hard to pluck a guy that was let go.  Typical Capital coverage showing their obvious Pen(I)s envy.

Wasn't it rumored last year that the Rags were going to snatch Bylsma up in the event he was fired by the Pens?  How ironic that they may be the ones driving the final nail into the coffin.

F@&# the interwebs.  Tired of the weeping and gnashing of teeth after every loss since the Olympics.  Last I checked, the Pens can still win this series, and maybe even *gasp* win the Stanley Cup.


What happens to all the doomsayers if that happens?  They all turn into fanbois. 


Are they playing well now? Hell no.  Does that mean we should jump off a bridge?  Hell no. Should we lynch Scuderi if they lose Tuesday?  Probably ... Dude sucks.

I can't be the only one horrified when Scuderi / Bortuzzo were on the ice, right?  Scuds is terrible, and has to sit.  

There was one sequence, where the Rangers changed EVERYONE, and it was 41 and 4 in the zone together.  Scuderi flubs the puck, and next thing you know the Rangers are in the Penguins mouth for a lengthy shift.  See the blue line?  You have ONE JOB - get the puck on the other side!

@strangerdangers About the only thing Scuderi does "well" is the trademark "get the puck in front of the net, and shoot it into the corner in a panic" move.

Maybe before the columbus crowd starts the "fleury" chant, they can learn the name of their own goalie.  3 goals on 3 shots =LOLZ.  Shades of The Fumble, defeat snatched from the jaws of victory.

Don't know if I can stomach a Detroit series.  That would mean engaging the douchenozzles over at A2Y for the 5 games it would take to eliminate them.  5 years later and they STILL whine over every penalty called.  It's either a dive or Bettman's insistence that the Penguins win the cup every year.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA funniest thing I've ever read.  This group dominant?  They couldn't dominate a peewee league.  The team captain wouldn't crack the third line of half the teams in the league.

On a non-trashing note, did anyone notice the Canes feed put up a screen shot comparing Sutter and J Staal?  Except it was a picture of E Staal.  Looks like it's not only Root Sports with gaffes like that.

It's really odd how no one cared about that until Consol opened, no?  Suddenly it's the first argument everyone makes.  Is anyone complaining about PSU football all the while Sandusky was doing what Sandusky does?

I wasn't gonna vote for Letang's goal, until I watched the whole video and realized that gave us the STUNNED MOLE.  Epic.  Especially OT.

Found the answer to my own question re: Center Ice:

ARE NHL PLAYOFF GAMES INCLUDED IN NHL®CENTER ICE®? Yes, select games from the first two rounds of the Stanley Cup playoffs are included in your NHL CENTER ICE subscription. The amount of games can vary depending upon the teams participating in the playoffs and the national television schedule.

Still shaking my head that the league can't get a national deal that would allow broadcasting every game. Not sure if Center Ice has any playoff action, looks like it'll be back to online streaming.

Jeez, so many buzzkills here. Does no one recall two years ago? Clinching a playoff spot shouldn't be taken for granted. And if you don't care, don't read the post. Why comment just to bitch about it?

@Dapper_Dan_Man Wait, I thought Mario was a hypocrite for not speaking out until Gillies went berzerk. So Air Canada is concerned about the "influx of head shots" but doesn't take a stand until a Canadien goes down? Riiiiiiiight.

When did the devils move to the SE division? They got the mandatory annoying horn sound to garner crowd support, just like craps, canes, thrashers, lightning.

@debrisslide67 Well, there's already one. I didn't think he played all that badly, except for the egregious turnover near the end there. Fleury bailed him out there. Noticed him stepping up in the offensive zone late in the game as well.

Of course there's gonna be jagoffs that will claim he sucks. First day with a new team, denied the chance to practice yesterday, sure he'll step in and be Letang version 2.0, right?

The blame for this is squarely on the shoulders on Joe "Fucktard" Benninati.

Early in the game: "Mark Recchi's next powerplay goal will be his 200."

Later in the game: "Mark Recchi has scored a kajillion points, but never scored against Marc Andre Fleury."

With jinxing shit like THAT, it was only a matter of time. I almost broke my TV when Recchi scored.

Fuck Versus. Go Pens.
