Not real sure what HNIC is doing asking a question like that... If I am the pens media relations team, I am not allowing anyone from HNIC to come anywhere close to my team again.

#IGGYGATE!


I do agree, that if true, that reporter would no longer have press credentials if it were up to me.

Why wouldn't they? That's a legit question, and it's not HNIC's job to look out for Iggy, the Pens, or Sid.

So be it. But that doesn't mean you have to give someone looking to start fires a book of matches.

Think man, think.

MacLean asked a legitimate question. Iggy was caught off guard at first, but answered it tactfully.

The panel back in the studio all agreed there was no tampering, and it was a moot point.

End of story.

I was addressing the issue of why HNIC would ask the question. You're addressing how the Pens should react to the fact that HNIC asked the question. Those aren't the same thing.

Obviously, I want what's best for the Pens, but I hate soft journalism, and I don't see anything wrong with the questions.

Regardless, I watched it, and all he was saying is that he "heard" Sid wanted him to come. Imagine everyone's shock. He could've worded it better, but no big deal. Search "Iginla tampering" on Twitter, and I'm sure some will make hay out of this for a couple of days, but there's nothing to it.

I just do NOT understand how a team owned by a former player doesn't understand the steaming pile of JINX that these sweaters are!?


And may they burn in hell from whence they came! Knowing how superstitious Sid is, I fully expect him to launch a “burn the blues” campaign. No one has a greater vested interest. Do it Sid!

Yeah these blue jerseys suck. The first time I saw them I didn't like them, and that was before all the bad injuries people got wearing them.

Im down with #BurnTheBlues. I'd love it if our third jerseys were the circa mid 90s Snoop Dog jersey.
