Wow, why so much posturing by everyone recently? "I played more goalie than you" "Oh yeah, well I can accurately describe every teams system!" "So what, I own more Pens related cereal boxes than anyone!". Can people not share an opinion without a bout of self-edification anymore?! I've avoided posting for a while as everyone seems to be in some sort of frenzy, perhaps caused by a mixture of playoff anxiety/hope, Bylsmagic, and unwavering faith/expectations of failure in the team...

@Nizzy - I agree with most of your points, I think many on here do to some extent but as per usual your 'enthusiastic' manner of posting encourages certain people to jump on your back. I find your posts far more opinion driven than a boatload of the guys here who contribute nothing to the topic of discussion. Keep on trucking, I may not always be in the same convoy but I'll beep my horn as we pass!

@Jesse - You are undoubtedly one of the most knowledgeable posters on here with regards to hockey and I love to read your posts, however I don't think it's fair to suggest someone has no idea what they are talking about just because they can't explain the X's and O's in a professional way. If my car broke down I could sit there and say "my car has broken down", but I wouldn't be able to tell you why as I'm not a mechanic.

My take:
- The glory of reaching the ECF with arguably the best roster we are likely to see in the cap era is undermined by the 'humiliation' of being swept. And to be honest just getting there made for extremely uncomfortable viewing.
- HCDB's systems aren't 'stupid', they can be highly effective. Problems seem to have arisen when other teams (usually the same ones, often in the playoffs) manage to frustrate 'even the best laid plans'.
- The transition from the cup winning team to the current team seems to have created a disconnect between the skillset of the roster players and the system employed - a kind of team identity crises.

Is anyone else hoping for the best but expecting the worst?

Kunitz apparently left practice early. Wonderful.

Which is sarcastic, I should add.

I just get tired of the same old same old. I need to bounce out of this thread permanently. I try not to not come off as a jerk, but sometimes I just get fed up with the axe-grinding and negativity.

It's somewhat sucking the life out of the game for me. I think some people would probably live healthier lives if they stopped caring so much about a game.

I've always liked your location...as well as Idoit's when he had "punchable faces." And (not to toot my own horn, but) I still like mine as well.

What I don't get is people complain about Bylsma the team whatever and then you have people complain about the complainers so aren't they adding fuel to the fire? This is going to be Byslma's true test almost everyone is healthy the team is the #2 seed no more excuses that time has caught up with him

Plenty of people are complaining about Bylsma dressing all the Pens star players for the Flyers game this weekend. I'm just wondering if the NHL pressured the Pens organization into doing so because it's a nationally televised game.

was it 2008; final game of the season, pens v flyers; nobody competed hard. I think they both wanted to lose.

Pens are good at having an all-skate during a game. ;)
