A lot more excited than nervous but still both. Excited because how good this team can be and the potential great memories they can make, nervous because I want them to win so bad that I'd be really disappointed if they lost in the first couple rounds.
We will never have this collection of talent again, especially with the "core" in their prime. The Pens will be cup contenders for as long as Crosby is here, but this is just a freakishly deep team. If they dont' at least make the finals, I'll be disappointed.
I have game 1 tickets, so I am ALL EXCITED. This is probably the best team we will ever see in the salary cup era, even you aren't just a Pens fan. That being said, anything but a cup will be devastating. There is waaay too much pressure on this club right now to win it all.
Excited for every opponent and challenge. Never look at it in the way of who is favored and who is the underdog. I just look at it as this is the Pens opponent, now, how on earth do we beat them? Just have to find a way.
And if they make it to the next round, it's that same mentality all over again.
I took a shot in the dark a few weeks ago and requested Wednesday off on the chance thats when the Pens would start. Didnt realize Consol was taken Tuesday & Saturday and they were locked in for Wed/Fri. I'll get about as much done on the personal day as I would have it I would have worked on the day of Game 1
