Being outcoached and outworked... newsflash this isn't the tired islanders you're playing..
1 year, 11 months ago on Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 27 - Boston Bruins
Great win boys, now just do the same thing (well preferably without having to make a 3 goal comeback) at CEC and we can put this rivalry to bed.
1 year, 12 months ago on RECAP: A Clockwork Orange. PENS WIN.
So not cool with Despres going.. he has proven that he will be a top 4, trade a prospect instead.
1 year, 12 months ago on And here come the Jerome Iginla Rumors
@gerloffc Oh I dunno maybe for letting Stamkos hang out in front of the net
2 years ago on RECAP: The boys are back in town. PENS WIN.
so tell me in what universe should despres be playing on the third pair and eaton on the second

2 years ago on Malkin returns tonight, but he isn't the only thing returning
@dvo @plaid Glass hahaha you gotta be kidding me, hasn't won a fight yet and is a black hole offensively even for a 4th liner. And how is that 4th "shutdown" line working anyways? Keep wearing the yinzer glasses, maybe Neal will get 50 pp goals this year and Kennedy will morph into a power forward.
2 years ago on RECAP: February of the Penguins. PENS LOSE.
Here's a fun exercise.. name one improvement shero made to the roster over the summer.. Staal move doesn't count since he had to make it. Youd think he'd have a plan B if Tangradi didn't turn out to be Kevin Stevens reincarnate.
@dvo @plaid @akus well in that case last night he should have just perched himself in the slot
@akus so we can never criticize the team when they mail it in?
@akus You gotta admit Orpik's physical game is diminishing, that could be excusable but now he is turning pucks over. They are also 5-5 in their last ten, and none of those wins were really convincing.
Part of me wants them to get embarrassed in montreal. Knowing them though they'll get lucky somehow and win and we'll all go back to forgetting about the major holes in this roster and flaws in the teams system.
@CammieBuckeye Every other team had to deal with the lockout. No more excuses.
Has the team learned anything from lasts years playoffs, I wonder.

@Dillon @plaid yes we know they'll beat montreal by some fluke and all will be well again...
2 years ago on Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 21 - Carolina Hurricanes
@HYJYNX @plaid tk, nisk and orpik could go honestly for more forward depth but not much out there on D to replace those two them
@digiguin @plaid nah not this season unless this stuff continues
So who's gone by the deadline?
@digiguin not one goal has been Fleury's fault.
Damn straight on Steiggys jinx-curses.. "This player hasn't scored in 10 years.... "
2 years ago on ADAM: Why I've moved over to Mike Lange
@Mrmcgibblets @plaid So you're saying this team is good as is just because this division is weak this year? They can't even keep their emotions in check against a below .500 Flyers team, imagine what Boston would do to them in a series..
2 years ago on RECAP: Doubting Tomas. PENS LOSE.
Well count this as a fail on Shero.. now we'll be paying a guy 2 mil to sit on the bench while Fleury gets the same workload that has supposedly affected his post-season performance. I guess giving Tangradi top-6 time was more important than to maybe find somebody during the offseason? Clean house Shero from top to bottom, if we suck for a year so be it.
Fortunately the rest of the division has been equally bad so far. Is Letang the next Whitney for this team?
2 years ago on QUICK CAP: Panther outlast Pens 6-4
Honestly I dont think this means any big deal is coming soon, maybe just some early prepping for playoff D depth... probably not gonna see anything until Malkin comes back and is back into the rotation..
2 years ago on Welcome Back, Mark Eaton
@HYJYNX @CheDy_79 Yep when they complain about Fleury you know it's pointless to argue.. "I heard Fleury sucked last playoffs on ESPN so let's trade him for someone else's backup!"
@Con_Soul11 why would anyone want him is the real question though. Not like he has the biggest upside. Thats why I think a major prospect + 1 roster dman will have to go for anybody good.
@CheDy_79 @HYJYNX Ohhh where to start. Gonchar was gone barely an hour after free agency started. Talbot had done nothing since the finals and was given a contract by philly that will hurt them for years to come. Poni and Kov were the best that could be signed considering the cap at the time(and TWO franchise players being out), not even Detroit wanted Jagr's cap hit, Staal was gone anyways and Sutter has the same amount of goals as Staal(and a better +/-) playing on the third line. And who did you expect them to pick for the 8th pick? Some diamond in the rough reincarnation of early 90s Kevin Stevens that didn't exist?(8 out of the top 10 picks were Dmen).I tell ya if anything else Pittsburgh has some of the most spoiled sports fans.. anything less than a championship every year is a major upset and is reason to fire everyone in management and blow up the team. So you tell me what should Shero do? Send Luca Brasi to every good FA and make them sign for the league minimum or else?
Well hope for the best I guess. Probably will still be out at least 10 days just to be sure even if he isn't having any symptoms.
2 years ago on Conflicting reports on Malkin
Come on need a convincing win to get the bad taste out from last game. Never know whats gonna happen at the CEC though.
2 years ago on Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 18 - Florida Panthers
Kinda funny when you hear the local media and radio shows going on about this incredible rivalry that is "the best in sports".. you can really tell when it was a quiet year for the Steelers and all these guys that kinda don't know anything about hockey are covering the Pens. This rivalry wasn't even that big when they played eachother two straight years, it was all about Washington up until the Winter classic and after that load was blown it kind of fizzled. Hell until last year I thought Ottawa was kind of a more legit post-season rivalry considering the last few years. But minds were really just that blown from last year, personally I thought the writing was on the wall based on the season series.
2 years ago on Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 17 - Philadelphia Flyers
@akus Probably will play a role like Boucher in 2009.. playoff vet/ depth guy if the younger guys have problems..
2 years ago on TWITTER CONTEST: Malkin Bobblehead
Lookin like Eaton might come back for depth on D.. guessing a young d/prospect will be going soon in the anticipated trade
thats what we need! more roleplayers!
2 years ago on LINK CITY: Pens scouting the Wild?
All of this talk is assuming they want a winger for Sid to get Kunitz back with Malkin and Neal. I don't think they have any intention of breaking up the first line considering its production so far.
@MrsMalkinsBorscht Yeah let's see here 85 points in his rookie year and at least 100 points every year since then that he has played a full season. I think I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.
2 years ago on Despite being 11th in the League in scoring, local Pittsburgh columnist calls out Malkin
@KelVarnsen00 Eh I'll be happy if Neal can just match the equivalent output from last year, even if he's just a power play hero. Something is up with malkin though.
@isildrae @Flashtastick56 @orby @Glasstastic It'd be nice to get him but Calgary will probably want way too much. But hey they've been mismanaging that team for years now maybe RS can fleece them.
Yeah not so sure about him going for a winger unless some amazing deal falls in his lap. Hell the team in 2009 won with the likes of Fedotenko, Satan, and Talbot.. pretty good considering they lost what were considered formidable forwards like Malone and Hossa.
@firefox91 people including Bylsma took last years playoffs hard
2 years ago on QUICK CAP: Ryan Miller, Sabres choke late. Paul Martin real American Hero
Whew redemption he was about to go on the goat list for that 3rd buff goal
yep wouldnt be a complete matinee game without a blown lead
2 years ago on Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 16 - Buffalo Sabres
Miller has been weak this year so getting a lot of shots and up in his grill will be the key... shutdown Vanek and you shutdown the sabres..
Eh any ill will about the Philly thing dissappeared when he was a non factor in the playoffs and they were bumped out easily. The most annoying thing with him leaving Pitt for me was that he was traded for nothing.
2 years ago on VIDEO: Still hate Jagr for some reason? You won't after this interview.
From the Black and Gold recap: "The puck followed Bennet early and often. He def looks NHL ready, but you can see where he is a tad bit unpolished. He looks out of place in the ol' traffic areas. Either way, the guy looks like he'll be at the top of the list when it comes time to plug some AHLers into the lineup."
Eh worth a shot this is what happens when you don't have a preseason, but either way cant get too bent out of shape if he has problems since it's his first year as pro. He's a -3 with 3 PPGs so Im guessing he loaded up with a bunch of PP assists.
2 years ago on Cool story, Beau. Bennett gets the call to the Pens
http://www.pensburgh.com/2013/2/14/3988914/nhl-trade-rumors-pittsburgh-penguins-tyler-kennedy?ref=yahoo "Ray Shero calls out Tyler Kennedy" I agree but how's that saying go? "Don't expect blood from a stone"
Fuck em. Where was the sympathy and concern when literally THE BEST PLAYER (not just 'highest scoring defenseman", best defenseman my ass) in hockey was injured?
2 years ago on Sens Organization officially accuses Matt Cooke of hurting Erik Karlsson
Yes if things goes well Tangradi might be the next Chris Bourque! What a bright future!
2 years ago on Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday 14 - Ottawa Senators
@akus let me guess should've got that top 6 winger for Tangradi? Yahoo sports: "Jets trade for power forward with upside"
Anything less than a reg win is unacceptable.. they've had two days off at home and are playing a team AND goalie that just played last night..
Operation top-six winger? Who pray-tell?
