@Rage @Lemay1945 @FlowerPower Yeah. Let's trade him!
1 year, 11 months ago on Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 24 - Philadelphia Flyers
@Rage @FlowerPower @Lemay1945 In this specific game? Yes. It the past it hasn't just been Neal.
It's a good thing the Pens kept Despres out the game. You wouldn't want a guy like that playing in a game like this where you need your best defensemen out there.
It's essentially the exact same team that got bounced by Philly in the playoffs last year. Not sure what we all expected to change in the offseason.
Okay, time to do something productive.
@FlowerPower Maybe they can resign Phillipe Boucher and put him out there instead of Despres and Bortuzzo.
The best thing that could happen at this point is that the Flyers don't make the playoffs
I remember when I used to look forward to watching the Pens and Flyers play, now I dread it.
@FlowerPower @Lemay1945 So yes, yes they have our number. I remember not to long ago the roles were reversed.
So do the Flyers just have our number now? Is that how it is?
Dumb move by Neal to get put back in the box. The first penalty was BS, the second was just stupid.
Wow, the camera shots are just awful so far. They keep doing close ups on people's faces during game play.
Why is Despres always on the block? Has anyone other than Rossi floated the idea of trading Despres?
1 year, 11 months ago on And here come the Jerome Iginla Rumors
People like to overreact one way or the other. I think the Pens will be fine and make the playoffs, however I don't see any reason why they'll go deeper in the playoffs this year than they did int he past three.
1 year, 12 months ago on QUICK CAP: Canes eliminate Pens from playoff contention
@HYJYNX @Lemay1945 Yeah, I'm not really sure what we expected though. The Pens got bounced from the playoffs last year and lost Staal, Z, and Sullivan. They added Glass and Sutter. It's not like the personnel changes indicated they were going to be a different team this year.
1 year, 12 months ago on Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 21 - Carolina Hurricanes
The most disappointing thing about the Pens this year is how they play down to worse teams. Games like this are where the Pens should be padding their wins.
@HYJYNX @Lemay1945 @FlyinPenguin Let's hope so.
@HYJYNX @FlyinPenguin Yeah, but have you seen anything that indicates the Pens are about to mount a big comeback?
Mr. Simpson, how do you respond to the charges that petty vandalism such
as graffiti is down eighty percent, while heavy sack beatings are up a
shocking nine hundred percent?
Aw, you can come up with statistics to prove anything, Kent. Forty percent of all people know that.

2 years ago on QUICK CAP: Panther outlast Pens 6-4
2 million dollar Brent Johnson didn't look good tonight. That's two games in a row.
@firefox91 @Lemay1945 Actually, I'm hearing new rumors that Malkin died during the 2010-2011 season and has been played by an imposter since then. And the Walrus is Sidney, coocookajoob
2 years ago on Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 19 - Tampa Bay Lightning
Tonight's game will be played in memory of Geno Malkin, who according to the Trib actually died of AIDs he got from the end boards when his head slammed into them on Friday.
I don't want anything complicated. The playoffs should be simple. You shouldn't need a round robin potato sack race to decide who comes in 8th.
2 years ago on Interesting realignment rumors abound
Johnny Walker is making the result easier to swallow.
2 years ago on QUICK CAP. No clue what the hell just happened. Pens lose 6-5
Well that felt like an exact replay of the playoff series from last year. Little to no defense from either team.
So that felt like last years playoffs again and it had the same result in the end. WTF? I know that last goal was all on Vokoun, but what happens to our D when we play the Flyers?

@TL Okay yeah, good thing he quit then. He would have probably been fired anyway.
2 years ago on REPORT: In shocking turn, Tim Benz quits the X on air
@DCPensFan007 I'll be honest. I rarely listen to his show in the morning. However, I notice he seems to weigh in on a lot of issues that would be considered political.
I would agree that his show as supposed to be a blend of hot topics, sports and humor. However, his desire to talk about politics or politically charged issues was his decision.
He's done it before. I can't remember the last subject, but I do recall turning the radio off because that's not why I (or I imagine anyoe) tunes into morning radio.
Maybe he'll get a job at NPR or 104.7 News Talk.
@TL Regardless of people's political opinions, Benz should understand that he's the morning show host on a radio station. His job is to talk about local sports and humorous/disgusting stories lifted from the internet, not talk politics.
This is a creeping issue in our media and pop culture. Politics pervades everything. People don't tune into morning show shock jock radio to hear a host's political views, nor do they turn to a sports program for that reason either.
If your job is to talk about sports, then talk about sports. If you job is to make jokes about articles lifted from TMZ and Gawker, then stick to that.
I don't think anyone in the world ever said to themelves, "Well, I wonder what my local shock jock thinks about this political issue."
It appears he wanted to continue to give his opinions on air and it got the best of him. I won't be sad to see him go. Perhaps the X can bring in an actual hockey expert to cover the Pens since the X is the Pens flagship station.
Good news if true. The morning show is fairly awful and I'm not a fan of his sports coverage either.
I wish him the best of luck working at Willie Wonka's factory.
@Larfleeze Meh, we got Guerin for a conditional 4th round pick. It ended up being a 3rd after we made the playoffs.
2 years ago on Ben Lovejoy Traded to Anaheim
Lovejoy was always going to be the healthy scratch. This saves the Pens 525,000 dollars and gets them a draft pick they can use in the draft or trade away at the deadline this year.
I liked Lovejoy, but this was a good move.
The Capitals missed their window. They will never win a cup with Ovie. It's not just his poor play, it's the entire team. They've been getting worse every single year. Back in 2009 they were one solid goalie away from (potentially) a cup win. Now...well loook at their roster. I will be amazed if they make the playoffs.
2 years ago on Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 9 - Washington Capitals
@plaid Nah, it's still early. He was never going to be an upgrade from Jordan Staal.
2 years, 1 month ago on Gameday 4 - Winnipeg Jets
The Malkin line was minus two for the evening. Nothing to be overly worried about. The line looked a lot better tonight than Wednesday. They had a bunch of scoring chances, but Pavelec got the best of them. However, the third line was noticeably worse without Kennedy.
On the bright side, Vokoun has another solid game.
Sloppy game all around. I lost count of how many times our players started breakouts for the Jets with terrible passes.
That was disappointing. Not the end of the world, but it would have been nice to go up 6 points on the Flyers. It's always disappointing when the Pens play down to an opponent and lose. This seems to happen a decent amount with the Maple Leafs.
The Pens seemed to dominate the first period but Reimer played well and kept the leafs in it.
You have to wonder how many more games, if any, Tangradi will get on the wing. It looks like he got pulled from the Malkin-Neal line after the turnover that led to a goal. I really want him to succeed, but he doesn't seem to know what to do out there. They aren't asking a lot from him either. He really just needs to work the corner and go to the net. He can't seem to even do that.
2 years, 1 month ago on QUICK CAP: Leafs win 5-2
Whenever it comes down to these management versus players fights, the management will win out. The simple fact is that the management can replace the workers.
I do think the league needs to lose four teams, I think Philadelphia, New York Rangers, Washinton Capitals, and the New Jersey Devils should be folded up.
