Then it'll get somewhat exciting, but you know Flyer fans would say it wasn't a "real" season. Even myself, I'd have to look at that asterisk next to it.... ughhhh, more bleh.
You say that now, but if that happened and the Pens win the SC in the shortened season, you would be swelling with pride the next year when there raising that 4th SC banner to the rafters. You wouldn't be giving a damn what our rivals would think of about a asterisk.
Honestly, we would win the SC in a full 82 game season and everyone would cry foul about something. Look what happened when we won the SC in 09. We won fair and square and everyone made a big deal because of Crosby and the handshake. No matter what, opposing fans would find something to nitpick about us.
Nope, winning the Cup in a short season does nothing to me to make winning the cup feel cheap and undeserving.
