So I'm listening to PenguinsLive and it was just...

Postby Admin on Thu Mar 14, 2013 9:31 am

...thrown out that Rob Rossi is close with Evgeni Malkin and is working on Malkin's biography. Is this common knowledge?

I was not aware of that. Interesting.

Good work by Rossi to find someone to help translate Rob's thoughts into English.

Geno tweeted this out a while back, which has Rossi's write-up and his status as biographer at the bottom.

I thought I had been incepted when I first read this.

I didn't hear the segment with Rossi, but I know he makes sure to throw out the fact that he is close with Geno every chance he gets.

I'm not sure who else on the Penguins team gives Rossi the time of day. For whatever reason, last year he was pulled off of the Penguins beat for a time.

I believe Rossi’s temporary ouster as Penguins beat reporter had a lot to do with his critical comments about Sid during the dark days of his concussion. Specifically, he was upset that Sid was not making himself available to the media and providing more frequent updates on the status of his health.

Earlier this week I got a kick out of Rossi spending a segment talking about how the Pens would be better off as a two seed than a one seed. He said the 1 seed matchup would most likely get Montreal or Boston and the 2 seed would get Carolina. ???? Did I miss the change in teams making the playoffs this year??? Probably Monday or Tuesday's show when he was hosting. Anyone else hear that insight?

In the context of the top 4 teams advance to round 2, I get what he is saying.

However, in hockey, there is usually 1 "seed upset" every year in the first round. I would bank on it being Team x beating Carolina in this example so then Pens would get Habs or Bruins.

Besides, there is no easy road to the Stanley Cup.

I had the chance to listen to that part twice. I don't think he was talking about down the line. I think he just had a brain fart. Sometimes it seems the hosts have slightly too much time to kill. I did really enjoy Metzer, although I don't do the fantasy.

I am listening to Penguins 24/7 and there is nothing more painful than Mike Pirsuta and Katie O'Malley. Katie O'Malley can't seem to complete a sentence and Pirsuta only watches hockey when football season is over. They haven't been able to replace Steve Mears.
