@floorlizard @PamBitner It's not impossible to be loyal to the team without going out of your way to shit on particular players, even if they are part of the opposition.
How much does that loyalty really mean if, regardless of what any player does for the crest on the sweater, he's going to be demonized the second he leaves town?

@floorlizard Schenn is a punk for engaging in the same tactics Crosby did seconds prior?
It must be those announcers of yours, because most Pens fans seem to be gigantic hypocrites and homers. I bet you knew nothing about Schenn before the cross-check, but the second he does it, he's a punk-ass.
Meanwhile, players like Crosby and Malkin are going around slashing everything that moves, because they know they can get away with it. Then, when someone stands up to Crosby and doesn't take his shit, he pouts on the bench for 30 minutes or whines to the ref. Malkin takes a shot at Giroux's head every time these two teams meet.
Let's not forget Kunitz pulling hair and fighting through refs to slam a defenseless players head against the ground. Or everything Matt Cooke has done. Hate to break it to you, but despite the 30-year-old Broad Street Bully narrative that people don't want to let die, this current Penguins team is dirtier than the product the Flyers are putting out on the ice.
@floorlizard @PamBitner Haha, really? "Don't judge everyone based on what I said!" That's hysterical.
Insults toward Jagr and Talbot seem to be commonplace on this blog. I understand being a little butthurt about them going to a rival, but get over it. It's cliche, but true: in the end, this is a business, this is their career. If you've got a skill you're being paid a lot for and it's not going to last forever, you sure as hell should try to make as much money as possible while you've still got your skill and health. It's not their fault Pittsburgh didn't want to match the Flyers' offer (With Talbot, I can't understand why. They must have just wanted to move on, because he has been an incredible bargain. He earns his salary through his defense alone.).
@floorlizard @PamBitner The man who scored the Penguins' only two goals in game 7 of their most recent Stanley Cup win and a franchise legend. Pittsburgh fans sure are loyal.
@stapler @Kunduction Yep, knee on Knee is clean as can be.
I wouldn't look much into the Briere injury. He's out indefinitely for a back contusion, which means Danny has a bruise. Laviolette is keeping him out because when a player misses time after a hit, the league is more likely to look into things. Obviously, nothing will come out of it. Just a bit of posturing and playing it safe on the part of the Flyers.

Post of the year.
@dancoulter @LollyGags @penschat Seems like Crosby does. Funny how well two rookies (Couturier being the other) have managed to get into the heads of your two stars.
Crosby is a joke. If you want to bump people from behind after the play, be prepared to take it. The only difference between what Schenn did to Crosby and what Crosby did to Schenn after that play is that Schenn didn't throw himself face forward after Crosby made contact. It was barely a love-tap, for Christ's sake.
Milbury of course goes over the top with his comments, because that's what he always does to try to gain attention, but the core of his argument is spot on. Crosby had it coming after what he did to Schenn. If he doesn't like it, he shouldn't engage in that kind of activity himself. He must have broken his own stick slashing Flyers three times Saturday afternoon.
