@Ungaba I would indeed hate to agree with anything Madden has to say, but I agree.

I'm not convinced that Jagr is the answer. This is a whole lot of nostalgia talking to you guys. In another post you made a comparison to getting Jagr now as when we got Billy G in 2009. Other than age, I see no comparisons here. Guerin was a true leader. Jagr is well... similar it Ovechkin when it comes to leadership.

Good lord, NO! Not because he is Mike Richards. It's because those statistics above are not so lopsided that it makes sense to take on that salary. Really, it seems like Sutter is better is most regards besides the production you get for the cost. Sutter is having a down year, yes. But it isn't so bad that we need to destroy our salary cap situation with Richards.

I watched most of the ASG weekend with my son, we enjoyed it. The skills competition is the most entertaining part. The game itself could be more if some of the players loosen up. Seriously, why the hell did they not do a flying V formation? I mean, how epic would that be?
MAF let in a bunch of goals... in the All Star game. Umm yeah. There were 29 goals scored total so the other 5 all-star goalies and the 12 defensemen have some accountability to that as well. Unless of course you realize the game doesn't count for shit. MAF's reply was great. I hope he dropped the mic and walked away afterwards.

Sid and Geno missing the ASG didn't make me enjoy the skills competition any less last night. Brian Elliot taking selfies during the shootout style competition stole the show anyway.

@jammonstrald Don Cherry is an obnoxious blowhard that seems to think that his opinion is the only one that ever matters. I honestly don't know how Canadians can tolerate his ranting. Fuck that guy. If a player can pull that move off and they need that goal, they should do it. Anything within the rules to win.

@ttutko I guess the NHL figured out how to make players and teams want to go to the ASG. If you miss the ASG, you have to also miss at least 1 regular season game. So was it by design to get Sid and Geno more rest by pulling Geno for 1 game before the ASG and Sid for 1 game after? I'm getting my tin foil hat for this!

His numbers aren't bad for being on a shit team like the Oilers. (Hey, where have I heard that before?) Clearly he is cheap so we can afford him. The worst that could happen is that we waive him ourselves. Good move by the GM.

I'm on the fence about the Pens retaliating for the hit on Downie. It's a dirty hit, no doubt about it. The league will get him and I think the team knew it hence no retaliation. But there is a side of me that says someone should have taken Suter to the woodshed. In the end the win is the most important thing and they got that. Solid performance all around. My only complaint was the first goal against us where 4 Pens were looking at the puck carrier and let 3 Wild players stand in front of MAF. Can't put that on MAF at all.

@Norojo You are really overreacting. The mumps were contracted by players around the league, not just the Pens. Who said Maata's surgery was "botched"? And broken bones due to impact with 90+mph pucks is not a "conditioning issue". But tell you what tough guy, we will line you up in front of some pedestrian 60mph shots and you can show us how well you are conditioned.

Teams looking to make a playoff run will want Paul Martin, right? What the hell are we? Consider it a trade with ourselves. Like playing with ourselves but more productive and not nearly as much fun. Screw this crap about getting something for him. What are we going to get, a 6th round pick because he is a rental. Screw that, ride him out to the end of the season. We need him now.
Guys, gotta let go of the Jagr thing. It's not gonna happen.

When I said I didn't like Kunitz on the 3rd line, this wasn't the adjustment I had in mind. If Perron normally plays the left side, let him play the left. Put Kunitz with Malkin who he has had chemistry with in the past. Downie can keep gooning on the first line with Sid until Hornquist comes back. Oh well, hope I am wrong and these lines get 2 goals each tonight.

Nice to know Adams can lay some hits down. Now if he could just go ahead and do that on the opposing team during a game and not his own players in practice, that would be great.

Add another trophy to Sid's shelf with the win. And Hartnell wanted the long sticks so he could cross check Sid. :) Seriously, that was cool. Very classy for all those players to go out and do that and just give those guys a moment to remember forever.

At 1:49... "It's like God knew he was going to end up with the Flyers. He put "jag" right in his name." While the rest of the video wasn't funny, that shit was.

I'm still trying to figure out the lines tonight. Which top 6 forward was playing the 3rd line tonight, Malkin or Kunitz? Malkin had Rust and Spaling as his wings. That is bottom 6 all day long. Kunitz-Sutter-Bennett could easily qualify for a 2nd line if Malkin was on the first, but he wasn't. The lines were jacked up, needs to be fixed.

So I know Staff thinks Craig Adams is the complete worst player in the NHL and blah, blah, blah. But take a step back for a second and realize that no one here knows what really happened between Malkin and Adams. Because Malkin is the star, it's automatically assumed that Adams is the aggressor and just a complete dick. But think about this, Malkin has lost his temper many times before. I can't think of too many times when we can say that about Adams. Either way Malkin will continue to be the star and will be playing for the Pens for years to come. Adams will likely be done with the Pens soon. But none of that means that Malkin is completely absolved of the conflict. And for that matter it could just be a mutual scuffle where both should take some blame. I can't answer the question of "What was Adams thinking?" But I have a good idea he wasn't thinking "I will just lay down and let a team mate beat my ass." (Of course that one pic appears to show that is what happened.) Snoogins.

Honestly, if I lived in town I would rather go to the Pens game than watch the Steelers game. Hockey > Football. But the magic of technology allows me to watch both at home anyway. As far as the sellout streak, I kind of hope it ends. Yeah, it's cool and all, we get it. But it just isn't that relevant anymore.

1 month ago on Conversation @ http://thepensblog.com/2014-archives/gif-sidney-crosby-throws-his-stick-in-anger.html
Some people made a big deal out of this. Some compared him to throwing a fit like a child. Dude is a professional hockey player. Often considered the best in the game. He is in a slump. His team was getting shut out. He was all lined up to score a goal and the stick blows up on him. Ummm... yeah he is pissed. Are you telling me you wouldn't be? By the way, that is at least the 3rd stick that has broken on him in the last few games so you can add that to the mix.
@Mr. Confidence @PenGeno I mean, you are already on the internet so you could look up the boxscore. Just sayin'. P.S. No, they didn't.

So funny how I hated this guys guts until he started playing for us. Now I like him. :) He is insane though. I pray that doesn't cost us dearly at some point during the season, or the playoffs. Because Downie isn't a typical goon. He can play when his mind is right. He sure as shit won't be in the press box in the playoffs if healthy.
