@FuuManChuMan Yotes are down 3-0 to Detroit in the first round and are getting reamed early and often in the defensive zone. Last year is was a pretty tight series, especially at first. Pretty safe bet Shero knew what he was getting.

Awesome game to be at. Long stretches of quiet in the crowd, especially in the first, but the whole third period was insane. I got a pic of me and Katie O at the end too. I'm not posting it cause I'm making a total drunk-creeper face, but it's pretty funny.

@Wampa3 I know it was Johnny cakes. The whole point of the pic is that he looks like Trevor Gilles. Hence Trevor-Cakes. Get it? Too early?
The Trevor-Cakes pic at the top is awesome.
@Savage_Beast Nabby was a snipe at league minimum. Leighton would be around a million after waivers. and he's not that good unless your backup got punched and broke his face or something.

Flyers fans are melting down. Some are forfeiting the Division title already. A few have been calmed by Leighton clearing wavers. It's good to be a Pens fan this time of year.
@Rage He's like that a lot. Some of the hits he takes makes me wonder if he's going to get up at all. He has a nasty shoulder check that plants big guys on their butts too. He's like a mini Kunitz.

I responded to the wrong comment. Oh well. Fuck the Habs. Fuck Philly.
4 years, 1 month ago on Orpik goes through full practice | TPB
@Rage I also thought at the time that it wasn't an uncommon play. I know I've posted it before, but orpik layed a beauty on spezza a few years ago that spun him back so fast he landed on his face. Like 90 more degrees and he would've been standing again. He got up laughing. It made espn. I think accusations of embellishment are pretty dick, and I'm glad the dudes ok, but really? Fuck the Habs.
I saw Tangradi practiced too. I like him, but nobody has earned a seat.
I think this cooke business is just more of shero's genius to push the agenda on headshots. Now the Pens can say to the NHL, if you want this out of the game, you have to do something about it. We don't want to play against this guy either.

@CBKWit Tanger was running people like a rabid beaver with the clap in the third period. I thought for sure he was going to cross the line and get himself tossed. He was PISSED! Orpik's return should settle some folks down. It's a shame Engo didn't have his best game (really his last few games I think), his crease-clearing was a strength earlier in the season.
4 years, 1 month ago on RECAP: Near Meltdown in Motown. PENS WIN. | TPB
So Asham can't fart on JimHoward but Homer can move the goalie's glove with his stick so he misses the puck and it's just fine. That's not the first time he's done it either.
@Billgates @WulfBlud Flyers blow a lot of 3rd period leads. Maybe the Pens were just practicing "Flyers Hockey" for Thursday.
Holy Shit Livefried actually let me log in for once. . . figures, it's when I've got nothing to say.

I listen to fatass' show on the way home from work. He was jobbing an unnamed website for writing about definitive return dates for Crosby. Something like "he won't be back till April" and Madden went off about how nobody knows that, not even Crosby and either the writer of the site or the person he talked to simply made it up. He never mentioned the site at all.

Rumor is that Shero's looking for a D-man. Anyone know how he fit Kovy under the cap? How the hell is another D-man going to fit?

@Lemay1945 @akus So Kunitz is a bust because you had higher expectations than you should've? Better get a bungee rope if they do acquire Kovalev

@cityStatic If they do that then there is no point to the divisions other than a heavily focused schedule. As it is now, there is significant motivation to win your own division.

@Dapper_Dan_Man I'd imagine they wouldn't get too much ice time without at least one practice. . I'm not a Sutton on how Dallas plays, but I'd guess it's not the same.

@akus Jeep makes a really solid vehicle. If the personality of the interior fits you, and the gas mileage doesn't scare you away, they really are a decent choice. Quality 4wd systems too, not just your average Pickup/SUV stuff. The higher-end ones are pretty cushy inside too.
@kkobers @deleted_11399_walterflanagan Didn't work well for whitney fans. . .
Last few games I've been noticing Wallace everywhere in the first two periods. Dude looks a lot like Fartsmell out there the way he skates around. Fast and strong but zero balance. I wonder if when he scores all his goals in the AHL, he does it falling down just like Ronald McDonald.

@ChrisKitColalella The story doesn't note that as the kid was wheeling out of the arena, Matt Cooke hit him squarely in the numbers and tumbled him down a flight of steps shouting "keep your head on a swivel!" ...Or at least that's the spin that Puck Daddy will be putting on it.

Psamp had that Wil Smith's kid wears the Pens hat thing yesterday. Different pic, same event. He probably doesn't even know who the Pens are, just saw the logo in a snoop video or something. Isn't his pops from Philly? Probably shouldn't let his grandma see that. . .
@Dionstops50 @Letangueray @PensForTheWin I think T-Benz is worse than Rossi. Any time I hear his voice pontificating deeply on something pointless and usually misinformed, I actually get angry before I change the channel. It actually hurts to listen to that db. . .
4 years, 2 months ago on Pens Lose 4-1
Yikes Cooke. See you next week. . . Glad the guy wasn't hurt, but he was in a bad position just daring Cooke to make that hit. He shouldn't have hit him like that, but damn, you don't go and dare a dude like Cooke to make a dangerous hit.

@Dozinasaurus 2.0 @Retire21 @DrS I'm not sure what my points total has to do with the fact that to replace Malkin and/or Sid, Shero's gonna have to make a painful decision or two.
Shit, I don't even know what the points total means. I haven't posted much since the livefyre takeover. It's too hard to follow.
4 years, 2 months ago on Tuesdays With Stoosh: 2. 8
@DrS This is actually a good point. Depres is regarded as highly as Letang was, but at that time we didn't have the top 4 locked down long term. The only D in our top 4 who is going to need to ink again before 3 years is up is Orpik, and I'm pretty sure he's gonna stick around. Despres isn't going to be better than Goose is right now until after at least a full season in the NHL, which is gonna be painful.
@e_man41 @flowery They'll have to move someone to get someone, and the list of 'absolutely nots' is much longer than the 'probably nots'. I understand Talbot and Goose are unlikely to be hung out there, but I can guarantee that they get more interest and more potential return than guys like Rupp, Asham, and Dupuis. Can't gut WBS Pens if half of them are already playing in the Burgh.
The list of 'open for discussions' doesn't have anyone on it worth a $4-5-6-7-8M forward, which is probably the area that needs to be addressed the most at this point. Goose and Talbo would make a decent package for a top 6 guy and maybe a veteran D-man. Definitely can't leave Engo and Lovejoy as the 5-6 with nobody behind them. . . I don't know who is out there though, so it's all just smoke, mirrors and white-noise right now.
@kkobers @eurydice_krg Might be skating in Goose's spot next year.
