Yeah, they replaced them before Mellon closed. Now they have the 3 Cup banners hanging separately from the Conference/Division banners at CEC. The first couple of pictures on this Google image search show the new ones.

7 D might not be a bad idea. We rolled 7 when we won the Cup. I hate to say it, because he's been great for us and seems like a total prince off the ice, but it's really getting hard to justify dressing Craig Adams with the PK sucking like this.

@grizzlyblair I like when Doink turned heel and they gave him the new entrance theme. It started like the old circus/clown theme he used and then turned into some evil/crazy noise shit. He would do the crazy glare thing. So cool.

What a wuss.
He's a god-damned nuisance to the Pens though. "Voracek" must be Czech for "Knuble." I swear he's guaranteed a fluke goal every time he plays the Pens. The kid has skill, don't get me wrong, but there's almost always a weird bounce or two involved when he scores against us.

I see Ron Cook walking around downtown sometimes. He's even frumpier looking in person.

At some point, you guys are going to have to let Eric Tangradi go. Tyler Kennedy is still on the team.
@akus @dvo He's probably getting a lot of power-play time. They don't have much on the blueline in terms of offense. He's a power-play specialist. He'll never be a true top-pairing defenseman and won't be a top-4 on most teams.

God damn it, I don't want to become the Tangradi defender around here because I'm pretty indifferent about the guy aside from thinking he might still have some upside and isn't nearly as bad as people make him out to be, but this is just ridiculous. On Neal's goal off the faceoff in Philly, Tangradi drew a defender to the corner and opened up a shooting lane. On Neal's second goal against the Rangers, Tangradi went to the front of the net, engaged the defenseman. He then followed the puck to the corner and cleared the d-man from the front of the net. Neal was all alone in part because of Tangradi and in part because the Rags' forward blew his assignment. The "Weekend at Bernies" thing, while admittedly clever, is a bit of a stretch. From everything I've read as far as what the coaches want from him, Tangradi is not going to be very noticeable out there unless he starts banging home a bunch of garbage goals. It's not like he's been a liability out there.

@Jovi @badvibesdude @jeffurry Again, I'm going to put more weight in what the Pens' staff thinks.

@jeffurry Jesus Christ. People need to get over it already. The problem isn't necessarily with Tangradi, but the utterly unrealistic expectations people had for him. We got Kunitz and cap relief/rearrangement out of that trade. It was a total win. Tangradi is a bonus even if he levels out as a 3d liner in the NHL. He may develop into a 20-goal guy at the NHL level and he may not. Those types of players (big-bodies, net-front power forward types) typically don't hit their developmental peak until their mid to late 20s (see Holmstrom, Knuble, Bertuzzi, etc). The Pens obviously still see something and they're keeping him around because he's doing what they want him to do. I;m going to trust Shero, Bylsma and Fitzgerald's judgment on this one. People that expected him to be Kevin Stevens 2.0 by the time he was 21 and banging in 30 a year need to get a grip. And enough with the slow shit already. Some people just look slow even when they're moving at speed, especially stout, tall people. If he's fast enough to play in the AHL, he's fast enough to play in the NHL. The major difference between the leagues is skill, not speed. Tangradi doesn't suck. He's an NHL'er. He just may not be the top-6 winger people were hoping for.
While I agree that Snider remains and always will be a giant ass bag, I don't think this statement means much. If he says any different to the public, he could get slapped with a big fine. He stands to lose quite a lot the longer the lockout drags on. Comcast has a lot of money tied up in the NHL, so Snider has a major interest in salvaging as many games this season as possible and that interest is rooted in more than his ownership of the Flyers.
Then again, I'm grasping for any little bit of hope I can get, so who knows?

Well said, staff. Don't listen to that crap, especially if it's coming from Philly fans. They booed Briere mercilessly when he underwhelmed during his first year and they boo their team all the time when they are disappointed in them. They always say they pay money for the tickets and bankroll the team, so they're allowed to voice their disapproval. That cuts both ways.

The Pens have played without key stars all season. They've beaten the Rangers without those key stars and with the Rangers being relatively healthy. That needs to be taken into account as well in terms of putting things in perspective.

@Rage @JenBroflovski There are 8 sentences in the first paragraph. There are 2 in the second. Yeah, I got a little goofy with the commas and could have broken them up more, but don't get dramatic, Mable.

@Rage @JenBroflovski There are plenty of sentence breaks. You're delusional. Now you degenerating into trolling yourself. Whatever.
@Rage And don't exaggerate. It took two minutes to read. It didn't take much more time to compose. I'm not wasting anyone's life/day, much less my own.
@Rage @JenBroflovski @...PetrsMailbox That's the exact point I was making. The jury is still out on the kid. There's been a ton of talk on this blog and on other Pens blogs about what a bust he is. I'm just making the point that the jury is still out. Maybe I clouded that a bit with sarcasm and turgid exposition. So sue me. Everybody else writes like shit on the internet.
Again, my record of trolling here speaks for itself.
@Rage Who is Eric? I'm not trolling shit, King of the Trolls. I've been around this blog for long time. I don't post much, but I've been posting here since before the Hossa trade. I've never trolled anyone ever. I do my trolling IRL, as it is a noble calling.
