I hate to do this, and mods, please delete if you deem necessary...
The amount of doom and gloom, nitpicking, and impatience among Penguin fans right now is unreal. Win 15, lose two, and you'd swear it was the other way around.
News flash: it's next to impossible for a team to win every game because, believe it or not, they play against competitive, professional teams.
I stayed away from LGP yesterday and come back today to see people ripping Glass in a thread that shows what a class act he really is. I see a thread dedicated to ripping Malkin and asking him to show up. I see a thread about how Morrow is too slow for the third line, too dirty for the second line, and not impersonating Bill Guerin enough (even though the two never were the same type of player in the first place).
Iginla only has one goal? Fleury has cloned last year's version of himself? Jokinen hasn't won a faceoff yet?
Here's a tip that everyone can do with what they please: watch and enjoy. We may never again see a team in Pittsburgh (or the NHL, for that matter) with this much talent. They won't win every game. They might not even look great or good in every game. But that's why there is a long (even in this year's condensed format) regular season. All of the good that led to the win streak didn't disappear. There are problems that need fixed. What team is perfect? None. What team is as talented and fun to watch as this one? None. So enjoy it and stop complaining, because it won't last long!
