The Worst Thing You Read on the Internet Today Re: the Pens

It's actually pretty incredible that the Penguins are doing as well as they are, since all three of their lines behind the Crosby line are a mishmash of grinders and dudes who'd be in the press box if they played on any other team - Joe Vitale, Beau Bennett and Dustin Jeffrey are all borderline minor leagues, and Brandon Sutter is as well, arguably.


I don't really care about the Vitale/Jeffrey minor league characterization, but Brandon Sutter? Bennett, who is what, less than 10 games into his NHL career and a former first round pick)? WTF?

Also:

and they acquired Tomas Vokoun to back up Marc-Andre Fleury (although arguably, for as swiss-cheese-esque as Fleury can be, arguably it's the other way around).


wat

Arguably arguably arguably arguably arguably

tl; dnr -- People write stupid things on the internet and slappy likes to point it out because he's a child.

Well... if you read the comments, the editor of the site says, **** the Penguins.

So... kinda biased i suppose.

Why was it even neccesary to mention Sutter is a former AHL player?? As if "former minor leaguer" is some sort of insult.

That is an awesome article. The Pens are the worst team in the NHL for all of history.

Malkin and Neal are also crap grinders who should be in the AHL.

I had to look at it to verify this. Wow. Does he actually think its Chris Neil? And even if he did...he could play 3rd line. :pop: At least he got the top line right.

This was pretty funny. Crosby did a nice job in the fight, though.

Goes on to mention that Neal had a knee-on-knee hit on kelly last night. So I don't think he thinks its chris neil. But it would certainly make his "neil" is a 4th line grinder argument better...

For me, the article simply reinforced my belief that some people are unable to recognize when they are embarrassing themselves and losing credibility.

I think if a person mixes up James Neal & Chris Neil, they should stop writing about hockey and go live in a cave and lick rocks for sustenance
