if only the caps showed more spunk like barbs did in the playoffs, they might still be playing.

I'm so old.

Fucking Panthers fans ruined it though. Octopus could get picked up quickly, there weren't hundreds thrown out. Hats take a while but how often do hat tricks happen so it's not a big deal. The rats took forever because everyone could bring in 10 in a bag and so it blew.

I'm a user of these messageboards just like you and I was just replying to a view he had about only people in Western PA caring about the Penguins winning. I don't know how that is considered "randomly going after" someone but if that's what people think then so be it.

Colin Dunlap hinted as such this morning. His stance was (and I'm paraphrasing), "since when did power play goals take a back seat to even-strength?"

Kessel is third in scoring in the league at a point a game. How much more does Cook want?

The more i read it the more the article is laughable.

He is saying Kessel isn't scoring enough... but then he says he has 7 post season goals this year and 10 last year. He conveniently doesn't mention that the Pens have at least 3 more games to play this post season.

I should never have read the article. It's clearly click bait. He should leave the PG and join Dejan.

Agreed, they have been awful.

I am no Pens fan (truthfully I did not want them to repeat since CHI could not nor did I want Crosby to captain a third cup and equal Toews) but I have no desire to see trashville to win a cup. Helluva game by Guentzel and Murray.

No idea how subban was not given a penalty for spitting on the guy he was fighting. He is scum, nothing more.

Right now, it's the Penguins for me. But it will be 10,000,000 times worse if the Cowboys ever figure their shit out because that fanbase is the worst collection of human beings on God's green earth.

It's why I don't want the Capitals or the Nats to get their first titles, because I just can't stand seeing rivals succeed while I've gone almost 29 years of my life seeing one title.

I fully admit that I have been spoiled as a fan of fairly small market franchises. I am very fortunate to have witnessed 6 titles. Yes, as a Steelers fan it sucks to see the Pats win a bunch, but at least the Steelers have won 2 Super Bowls and played in two more during my lifetime, and of course have all the history. I'm soaking up every minute of this Pens dominance because I know it won't last forever and I remember the Rico Fata era. They've been my favorite team in any sport since I was a little kid, so these past couple years have been beyond joyous.

Then there are the Pirates. Sigh....:lol

Go figure, I would love for the Pirates to break through. One of my favorite memories with my grandfather (on my mom's side from western PA) is talking sports with him. He was a huge Pirates and Steelers fan (loved Franco Harris and Roberto Clemente). He wanted the Buccos to win so bad.

1-10 against the Pens in his career, with the only win coming in relief is very telling.

If they had a better backup I think Laviolette would make a change, but with a nobody backup, and them going back for game 3 at home, hes gonna start Rinne.

Putting in Saros, though, takes away the preds puck handling and break out from their zone. Would change things.

I know Saros is supposed to be good, but if they pull Rinne youre right they lose the puck handling which is a huge aspect of their gameplan... I also think it would fully deflate that team.

I think this is similar to when Trotz pulled Holtby that one game. Everyone was wondering if Grubauer would start the next game, but of course it was Holtby and he was much better.

Would be really surprised if Rinne isn't starting game 3.

:thumbsup

That's one less night we have to strain our eyes looking at the Pred's hideous yellow sweaters.

As awesome as the Pen's whites are they are more than offset by the Preds yellows.

Totally disagree here. I love the Preds jerseys. The biggest issue is the yellow helmet. When they wore those jerseys with the blue helmet, I thought they looked amazing.

Hate to say this, but I am not a fan of the Pens jerseys. I preferred their 1990's whites.

:confused

The white 1990 jersey was the same as the current one.

Current Pens whites are the best jersey in the league.



I normally like colorful jerseys but the Preds just has way too much yellow, its not broken up well with blue.

I don't like the Preds yellow but I like the idea of it in the stands with the fans. It's crazy and would be distracting for me as a player.

I said 1990's not 1990, sorry for the confusion. Here is a link to my favorites.

https://www.google.com/search?q=1990...I5zQ0c-iB7p7M:

Nashville with the blue helmets:

https://www.google.com/search?q=Nash...46ZYp2h7mkMJM:

That is when I think the Preds jerseys looked great!

Also, I don't agree that the current white Pens jerseys are the best in the league, unless you just mean best white jersey in the league. If you only mean of all the white jerseys, I might agree, but I would have to take a look haha.

Edit: I do like the current Pens white jersey too. It was their home jersey I was saying I was not the biggest fan of. I still prefer the link I posted though.

:lol oh god I hated those Pens jerseys and especially that logo.


NSH with the blue helmets looks better, but the yellow logo on yellow jersey thing I think is the issue I take with it.


And clearly im biased but the Pens whites are my favorite in the entire league.

Funny how that works. I didn't like that logo on the black jersey back then. I loved it on the white though.

The 1990's produced some different, weird and funny NHL jerseys for sure :lol

Second link surprises me though. I hate any team jersey that does the NY Rangers style lettering. I find it really weird to copy it to be honest.

Apparently Leonsis is a conspiracy theorist that the league favors the Penguins over the capitals.

The meeting in that write up took place in 2010, and there's really not much substance behind it, it's click bait bs, but still.

Heres another link for the first http://3951-presscdn-28-25.pagely.ne...xalternate.jpg

I mean other places have used it. Alot of NHL jerseys in the past have used the same templates and just changed the colors.

If the league did care, then why didn't they win anything until 6 years after that? League only wanted them to do better than the Caps but not win it all?

It's been a pretty vanilla playoffs to be honest
