That's a good question. When David Vollant beat Barasso over the shoulder in Game 7 OT to end the 1993 run, it took me 4 weeks to get over the depression. That team was so good, maybe the best Penguin squad ever to take the ice, that the loss stung for very long time.

On Sunday, I watched until there were less than 5 minutes left and couldn't take it any more. I could tell they weren't going to score again and they didn't. I thought I had moved on from this by Tuesday, but watching the Craps knock off Boston last night just made me mad all over again.

Nothing makes me crazier than wasted human potential and that's what this series was. We should have never lost to those bums. :twisted:

I guess when Philly and Washington get knocked out I might be able to live with this. But until then it really, REALLY, REALLY SUCKS. :face:

wow. the hesitation on his last answer was really eerie. We may be watching a completely different hockey club next October. This summer should be interesting.

Crazy thing is, MAF plays like he's capable of, and none of this discussion is happening right now. You can tinker with the team all you want, but if your goaltender doesn't step up, you're toast either way. 2012-2013 needs to be the year of the MAF.

He should be!
BUT, at the same time GM RS needed to visually & vocally support his team after the 4/1 game.
It was pile on to the penguins week after that game.

He sure doesn't sound very positive about being able to keep all of the "3".

When the playoffs end. Right now every game is a constant reminder of the epic failure.

Oh and if Philly or Washington wins the cup, the answer becomes NEVERRR! (or at least until we win our next one)

I thought he was least positive about fleury.... he said we have to look at the tampa series and montreal series, as well as this one. Well that's bad for fluery.

Me too.

Honestly the older I get the less emotionally invested I get. Just so many other things going on in life. Hockey is just a game.


I find this happening to me as well. About 10 years ago, I'd still be bothered. Now, it's "meh" and I move on.


Same. It was a little more than an hour, and I was more fired up about this series than some past losses, but it is what it is. More important things to worry about.

They didn't say what statement it was. Maybe "We're done playing defense for the year".

I'm split on this one. The rational side says we couldn't beat the Flyers all season so it's not surprising. Over it. The other side is mad that we wasted another year of Crosby-Malkin on the same team. That sting isn't going away any time soon.

No, everyone is to blame that the goalie is a miserable failure now in 3 straight seasons. He seems to be the guy getting the least blame though, which tells you how much folks on here understand about what soft goals do to teams in the playoffs.

Fluery's history suggests a guy whose best playoff seasons came when Crosby and Malkin both excelled, and he played more good games than bad ones in those runs. That is the best that can be said of his playoff record. He has never ever had a playoff where he was solid every single night.

Many goalies are.

I'm with the boss and for the same reasons. Three games into the series, I kind of accepted we were going to lose. Then a little hope appeared when we won our first one, but I wasn't surprised in the end. And I really don't like seeing these years of Crosby/Malkin wasted by either bad luck, as with the injuries, or a few players that aren't pulling their weight and screwing it up for everyone else. It would be one thing if we played a great series against a great opponent and lost, but this debacle was sad and embarrassing.

Tough to get over it when you read stuff like this by Rich Chere in the Newark Star-Ledger:

The Devils know exactly what they will face when they open their second-round playoff series against the Flyers Sunday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center.

“We know the kind of game they want to play and you can’t fall into that trap,” coach Pete DeBoer said today before a bus ride down the New Jersey Turnpike. “Pittsburgh did and they’re at home watching.”

The Flyers eliminated the Penguins in six games, provoking and then punishing Sidney Crosby and his teammates by scoring 12 power play goals.

“They got rattled,” Patrik Elias said. “They got out of their element with all the stuff going on—fighting, cheap shots behind the play, all the vocal stuff and off-the-ice stuff.

I have been over it. I would rather have the Flyers win the cup making the Pens one of 4 teams to lose. But either way I don't care.

The flyers winning the cup would give shero something to hang his hat on. It gives him justification for not blowing up the blueline this off season.
