I didn't like the idea of Steve Downie being on this team. But I have to admit, he did his job yesterday and it helped lead the team to a win. That check he put on that dude was epic.

@jonesmalaco I saw the slo-mo replay. It was clear that the puck coming off Malkin's stick was flat. Just after you see it passing Hornquist, it was wobbling. Clear sign that someone or something tipped it. But does it really matter? The goal was for the Pens and either way, Geno still got a point.

Duper further proving what it means when people say, "He'll be alright, he's a hockey player." They don't say that shit about any other athletes. Tough as balls.

After seeing that goal waived off, I had a really bad feeling it was going to still cost us. That was a really bad call and Dallas was pissed. It put them on a mission which they clearly succeeded. Bad penalty Sid took at the end, even worse PK to try to stop it. That PK is so bad. It's hard to watch when we used to be #1 at it.

@Craig Ross You of all people has been the most delusional about this franchise. All you ever did was shit on it. Even during the high times, you went out if your way to find some negative. Now after 2 games you want to pound your chest and tell everyone how you were right and the Penguins are achieving a dream? Seriously, go fuck yourself, Craig. 2 games does not make for a dream, it simply makes for a good couple of moments. And where will you be when the Pens hit a 3 game losing streak this year? Right back where you were, shitting all over them. Don't insult the actual fans of this team by claiming you too are a fan. I honestly don't know what the hell you are other than a miserable person happy with seeing the failures of others. You really don't understand what it means to be a fan.

@LoranMannIsTheMann Sid didn't seem to have problems scoring goals under Bylsma before. Pretty sure it was that wrist injury they admitted to after they were eliminated. Bylsma wasn't the answer for this team anymore, but he wasn't the reason Sid couldn't score last playoffs.

@SirDanforth Yeah it's only game 2. But honestly, that fan knew better to believe it would get better. It won't this year. It's Toronto. They never make any really bold moves to be successful. 1967 lives on.

2-0 and no bridge jumpers to be seen anywhere. Feels pretty good. But I won't get too high. Sill, our PK is brutal. IMO that is the number 1 thing to fix. Not sure about Flower so far. He hasn't be meltdown terrible, but he is still far from his best right now. Hopefully that will come in time. But offense is fantastic. People love to see goals. The Pens already put up 11 in 2 games. Good lord.

Thoughts...

-Gonna need to work on that PK

-Someone please tell MAF to stay in the fucking net

-Malkin looked sloppy but not unexpected for having no real game situations in pre-season, he will be fine.

-Sid... oh man.

-Duper... OH MAN!

-Bottom Six... Yeah, we got that.

-Team didn't sit back when they had the lead which was classic Bylsma. Props to Coach MJ for that.

I bought a couple of those jersey from China before. It was a bit of a shock going to to the post office to sign for what looked like a huge brick of heroin. Cause that is how they packed it. Anyway, the jerseys were okay but had some noticeable flaws, didn't have a good feel when wearing, and have and odd smell. I mean, I shouldn't be concerned about the smell because China has always been on the up-and-up when it comes to using safe materials in manufacturing, right? Yeah....  The legit jerseys are a lot more money, but I don' t buy a ton of them anyway so it is worth it to me to get them instead. I will probably grab one of these new ones eventually.

@Hibbits If you mean the 2011 Winter Classic jerseys, agreed. If you mean the 2008, it's pretty much a draw. No matter what, it's blue. The Penguins roots may be blue, but the city is black and gold. Needs to stay that way.

Good lord no. I didn't like the idea of Downie, but he did show he has some game in him. Carcillo is just a goon who adds nothing to the team but dumb penalties. No, no, and hell no.

I suppose there is some truth to the garbage bag with holes comment. I did buy the 2011 Winter Classic jersey which I regret because it is so ugly and I never wear it. But if the Pens stay true to the black and gold I think they will do alright with this new one. But I'm not pre-ordering because no matter what, I will get it cheaper at some other time just by waiting a while.

What a strange video. I mean who the hell asks why is the peanut butter good? It just fucking tastes good, okay? I'm not fucking chef Ramsey and a degree on why stuff tastes good.


On another note, I have a jar of that peanut butter in my attic. I'm sure it tastes great after 15 years and the hot attic. I also have a jar of the Kasparitis Krunchers. Yeah, fuck Jagr and his peanut butter. Real men get pickles named after them.


I refuse to believe that this stuff was better than Jif even when fresh. Nothing is better than Jif, nothing. I can believe it was better than Bradshaw's PB though.

I'm not participating in this. I have absolutely nothing against the guy. He was never expected to be a top 6, never slotted for it, never played like it. So why are we supposed to rip the guy as if he was but never lived up to it? Super star player he was not. But he did okay.

Is this the beginning of the end for Pensblog? Maybe the middle of the end because you have to admit, the community as a whole has fallen off. I'm not talking about summer time posts, I mean in the peak of the season rivalry games and the playoffs, posts aren't that much. There used to be gameday posts that would have hundreds of comments. Rarely is a photoshop posted anymore. It's just not as good as it used to be. But I get it, things change and people have other lives. But I certainly wouldn't mind seeing a little return to the glory days.

Madden is a loud mouth turd trying to sell himself to whoever will listen. Does anyone really believe that Malkin would do anything but be respectful to the new coach before he has even worked with him a single day?

I will let others look at advanced stats. I'm not because as a fan it is far more enjoyable to feel the game than to crunch numbers about it. I much prefer rudimentary stats.

@brendannn Marketing move. "First one is free." He is just letting people get a taste of what they will get for the pay service. If he was smart, he would regularly have a taste of free content to keep reminding people there is more to have. I'm not saying it is going to be worth paying for. I really don't know if it would be. For me, what I get for free from the million other resources out there is fine for me.

I suppose I would get mad if I read any of his stuff, but I don't. The media in general has become nothing but bias blowhards trying to sell advertising by creating controversy. Saying shit like this about Malkin is an example of that. I feel better about some douche saying it here because I can just write them off as yet another internet troll and not someone who holds a title and gets a paycheck for doing the exact same thing.

I found it more interesting that the Pens are going to try a paperless system for season ticket holders who opt in to the program. Fuck that, the damn paper ticket is the only souvenir I can be sure I will get when I go to a game. Well that and the headache from listening to the noobs yell "SHOOOOOOOOT!" 5 seconds in to the power play.
