Question for those that frequent the CEC. This question hinges on the idea that the banners pictured above are the original banners raised for winning the back to back cups. so the question is...Are those banners actually hanging in the CEC? I went there once for a Foo Fighters concert when it first opened but haven't been back for a Pen's game. I can't recall if those banners are hanging or if they hung different ones? I vaguely remember the ones in the CEC being only one panel not the full spread like in the picture. If so, what the hell happened to those banners because they are amazing! why replace them, seems like sacrilege to me!
2 years, 1 month ago on Nope. Actually it makes perfect sense.
Only gripe, and it may be a small one, is the strength of the divisional standing. The top three teams from each division are a lock for the Playoffs? How is that fair especially since they are reintroducing the idea of playing every single team home/away. I would say the top two divisional seeds should make it, then it should be based on a Conference standing for the "wild cards".

2:00 - 2:14 is really interesting to dissect. Not only for the slash but Staal completes finishes him to the ice, and gets his stick in Geno's face as he is falling. They won't see each other again until March 16th gotta wonder how long their memories are?

Well, when Crosby writes his memoirs he can write the Introduction like this...
"Hey J.R., Sidney Crosby is stamped into the Stanley Cup and Jeremy Roenick is not. So, I guess it really doesn't matter what I said since my actions spoke loader than any of my words. How's that for leadership? I had the publisher insert a tissue into every copy of my book just for you, it's in the back cover. Cry away my friend, cry away."

@NewYinzer @NYCBG That's the exact thing I told my buddy from Philly. He beat on Shero for not making any moves. I feel like the Flyers are trying to wash their problems away with the money hose...it doesn't work like that for the long term. I'd much rather have Despres and Morrow and others lurking around than give up 4 first round picks for anyone...Shea Weber or not...

@NewYinzer @NYCBG I agree...we don't need to shake in our boots because some teams are throwing money around. Call me crazy but Petr Sykora is still on the market
