Why because he scored two goals that a high school level goalie could stop with ease?
Pens have played like complete crap, obviously. Max Talbot has nothing to do with that. The penguins have played 40 minutes in this series. The first periods of games 1 and 2. The rest is complete garbage. The worst part is I still think the Pens best is better than the Flyers best. Sadly it certainly looks like we will never see the Penguins best or anything close to it. I have no idea what they are doing, but it sure isn't working.
Max has had everything to do with the last 2 wins. He was a +5 with 2 points last game, and was a +2 with 2 points again today.
The guy wins a cup with us, says he loves being a penguin, comes up for free agency and decides to go to our most hated rival because he's going to get a raise. To put this in perspective the after tax raise is barely anything. His per paycheck increase gets him a couple more douchy shirts that he loves so much... Wow. He's no doubt still driving his pathetically lame but perfectly in character BMW. I know this first hand because well, People that work for me make more money than him :)
Now he's not only laughing at his former teammates he's rubbing their noses in it.
Yeah, He is beating us but he should not have been given the opportunity to do so. Someone needed to make a statement in game one. No penguin did.
Instead the pens took the high road. Said hello to him, shared a few smiles probably had dinner with the cheesy d bag and look who's laughing now.
He's singlehandedly made the entire organization look foolish. And people think what jagr did is bad?!?!?!
The pens Lost this series when they broadcasted that lame tribute to him on his first visit back to Pittsburgh.
He's the enemy and should have been reminded of that. Not thanked or congratulated.
Now it's too late, the penguins look like spoiled brats.
Instead of a determined team willing to do whatever it takes to win.
