Based on everything I know, those 5 names get along really well. The xxx's must be evil bitter sobs.


There is no civil war. There is no evidence of a civil war. There hasn't been any team meetings banning rookies from playing ping-pong. Everything is okay.

I never suggested otherwise.

The same lazy habits that they had in the postseason last year are still showing this year in the pre-season. That bothers me. It seems like they haven't learned.

The score in the grand scheme of things means little, but yeah. Minus the last couple of shifts in the 3rd... the effort and execution has been piss poor.

Let's just assume there is a civil war going on.. it involves key "personalities".. who have LT contracts. Either it is vs. the coach or each other... what can a GM do besides start trading people to get them out of the organization.

Imagine what Iginla and Morrow came into last season that made them both say "um yeah, not what I expected, thanks but no thanks I'll go over there"...

Thinking back it really started to evolve in my memory around the time Talbot left and we got beat by the Flyers with him and Jagr.

I love that it's September/preseason and already people are freaking out. We got a long season ahead, guys.

It is fun to come up with odd rumors and freak out over them. I really do think you'll read a book or interview and we will hear something about the last 2-3 years we weren't expecting to hear that will make us go oooooooohhh... I see..

Blech, what an ugly game. It's like they haven't played in months and don't have their timing. :lol:

But seriously, this game hurts to watch.

Everyone is in pursuit of DB's wife. It's not only dividing the team but keeping DB employed.

This is kind of how I feel. Maybe I'm just primed to feel this way by the Steelers. Obviously, I don't expect the Pens to be at the Steelers level of suck, but there a lot of parallels--finished last season poorly, didn't do much to improve the roster, looked pretty poor in preseason. There's no reason to freak out, but I don't see much reason yet to be optimistic that this season will be better than last for the Pens.

This is the majority of the roster that people wanted to keep the same after adding Iginla and Morrow.

The Steelers didn't make the playoffs last season, much less the AFC Championship. There aren't many parallels at all between the two teams. There is no reason to compare.

The 3rd has been enjoyable since the Pens woke up.

I know that he's basically playing against the quality of players that he's used to, but Zatcoff has impressed me with his play and calm demeanor. Obviously he's not the ideal backup, but I feel a little better about TV being out after watching this game.

Despres has played with more fire tonight. He must get the sense that his spot on the roster is up for grabs.
