This Toronto team would give the Pens fits just like the Islanders. They are very quick on the puck and get it to the net.

I've enjoyed watching all of the other series yes. Playoff hockey is still playoff hockey. I just tend to enjoy it more when the Pens are still involved.

Let's put it this way... I have 1 beer and almost an entire 40 of Crown Royal sitting here. That beer will be gone by game time, and the 40 is likely going to get a good dent put into it.

I most definitely am not finding this first round enjoyable...not surprising, really, as I also hate horror films. A little tension, a little unpredictability to keep me on the edge of my seat is one thing, but watching this team shoot itself in the foot at every opportunity is not my idea of entertainment. What I am enjoying is the sense of humour that many posters bring to the different threads, even though the situation is no laughing matter. Laughing helps ease my pain...and boy do I need it!

Am I enjoying this first round of the playoffs? No.

I watch other teams play and am reminded of the Pens' playoff ineptitude.

I wish they would "right their ship," but I am afraid we are on the Titanic. The aggravating thing is year in and year out we keep hitting that blasted iceberg.

I am definitely enjoying this first round. I care less about if the Pens win, and more about being entertained.

last year's meltdown permanently altered my perspective on this group of players. i enjoy penguins games less and other teams more. but i miss the old days where i'd live and die with pens playoff games.
