Brooks Orpik thinks you are dumb

Postby columbia on Tue Sep 16, 2008 11:18 pm

You Hossa haters, that is:

http://www.thehockeynews.com/articles/17910-Penguins-end-brief-offseason-prepare-to-open-camp-Wednesday.html

"I think everyone was surprised by it (Hossa's departure), but I've heard people saying they are going to boo him and stuff like that, which is probably the dumbest thing I have ever heard," defenceman Brooks Orpik said. "It's a tough decision. ... He takes the one-year deal and says he wants to win. I think everyone was disappointed by it, but it's his decision and you've just got to respect it."

Apparently, he's a man of great wisdom.

I agree with him though I still think the people (and there were a couple of them) who said they're going to boo Malone are more pathetic.

(Then again, I find booing in general to be a silly practice.)

Assuming the Wings don't win the Cup - or the Pens, for that matter, because they will have proven they don't need him to win it - does anyone think that Hossa would come back here next summer long-term, or is the bridge burned between him and the Pens?

I think the best thing Pens' fans could do would be to totally ignore Hossa. I'd love to hear total silence in the arena when his name is announced.

I don't think it is at this point, but the fans will burn it this season. There is no money for him anyway. Staal will be signed before the pens have a chance to negotiate with someone of his calibre and that will be the end of it.

Theres lies another question: Would you rather sign Staal to an extension or let him sign somewhere else and get compensation for him, and then have enough money to go after a guy like Gaborik?

The easy/simple answer is YES, let it happen.
But that's why none of us is the GM of the Penguins.

If by "axe" you mean "got paid more money elsewhere" then yes...it's not like Orpik needs the Pens to get a job in the NHL, ya know? I'm glad Orpik got to stay, whether he'd be here if Hossa was here is another, irrevelant, topic...Hossa moved on, and so shall we...

You mean to say "so should we". I don't see it happening anytime soon.

I'd boo him no matter if he signed to play with Det, Montreal, Edmonton it doesn't matter what team. He's on an opposing team now. He's either with us or against us. Just the fact of the matter that he says Detroit has a better chance to win a cup and sign with them is a sign of disrespect to the Penguins organization and makes me lose any respect I did have for Hossa.

Me? I don't see what is gained by it. I certainly won't ever boo someone who has done nothing to earn the boo.

Saying Detroit's better is disrespectful? There are 29 NHL teams that no one respect then ;)

And yes it is interesting to hear that from Orpik as I'm sure he's happy Hossa's departure made it possible for him to stay. That said, I don't support the booing of anyone, unless it's someone who's deliberetly injuried another player.

I would never boo someone who was forced to leave the piece of crap team he was on, and was sent to another team, and then decided to go somewhere else. he's looking for a home, and apparently pittsburgh wasnt it. oh well.

the dude was in town for like 4 months, is he supposed to play for free because he has so many great memories there? get real.

He won't, and it will have nothing to do with bridges burnt. It will have to do witht he salary cap, and the Pens allocating the money they were to pay for him has already gone to others.

There won't be enough cap room.
