LOL.

Yep. By that logic the 1993 team was a bunch of bums as well.

Whatever.

Certainly every Pens fan wants to see them fulfill their promise, but unlike you, I'm not to complain about the media pointing out how special this team is just because the seasons not over yet.

You're right. Where have we seen this movie before? :scared:


Did someone celebrate a SC victory? I missed it...

So scolding folks for "premature celebrations" is a bit (prematurely) haughty.


Yes, you missed it, what a surprise. I didn't scold anyone, certainly not for celebrating a SC victory. I'm just wary of the media talking about how great this team is, because so far it has won zilch and is missing a handful of it best players. But guess I shouldn't be surprised by now that you're detecting subtext where none exists. I hope you're having fun, be safe, carry on, foe me, whatever.

Oh, and good for you that you enjoy watching the team, because I certainly don't. In fact, I hate it with a passion and I'm only staying up all night to make myself miserable in the rare moments when I don't have one of your incoherent ramblings to do the job.

Peace.

His last three years there they had 91, 106, and 110 points and the misfortune of playing in a division against Detroit and facing San Jose twice in the opening round and once against Detroit. They did not match up well with San Jose at all and didn't get to the second round until after he left.

They played great team defense but had nothing like the offensive skill of this team. But, not many teams do.

I don't think there's been a team this stacked since Colorado added Ray Bourque a decade ago. It's a dream team; expectations are through the roof. Nothing wrong with stating the obvious...

This is why I love having Morrow and Iginla playing that Jerome Bettis role. Those two are going to give it everything, and knowing what kind of guys they are, no one on this team is going to let them down.

Also, and I haven't seen this mentioned, a shortened season really plays well for Disco - not enough time to get worn down like the last couple of years.

I don't think the blackhawks are a fluke, though, anything can happen there. We've got the depth to handle injuries they don't have.

I'm actually thoroughly enjoying watching one of the two (2) most talented teams Pittsburgh has ever put on the ice. The other one lost before they even got to the cup.

So scolding folks for "premature celebrations" is a bit (prematurely) haughty.


Don't get your panties in a bunch. Having been a Pens fan for nearly 30 years, I'm just saying that overconfidence is not a good thing. It's a warning, not a scolding, if it makes you feel better.

Congrats on your 30 years...

And overconfidence isn't a good thing, if you're an active Penguins player. I don't think we have any of those on this board.

Oh, and by the way, when I wrote that I was going commando. :)

Vokoun is a big reason why this team is "by far the best team ever played on". He contributed and still might be a factor in a cup run. I don't want to see fleury struggle but at the same time I want Vokoun to win a cup so bad. Everybody says "iggy needs a cup". What about Vokoun?

I wore my Vokoun jersey to work today. He helped carry the team to where they are and he deserves some time to start in the playoffs as well.
