Penguins hockey = riding the coat-tails of two of the greatest players in the world in order to get a contract extension.

See Dupuis, Pascal; Kunitz, Chris; Neal, James.






*addendum: okay, yes, Neal is a very talented forward capable of scoring goals - but he didn't put up these numbers as consistently when he was in Dallas, even when skating with Richards, Ribeiro, Benn, etc.

The Pens lose at the Rock - it's simply easier to say it's tough to "get up for it" than to admit they can't beat us.


And that St. Patty's Day game was epic :) That was my son's first Devils game

What a twat. Every game he's played in NJ has been a sellout. His next game here will be st patty's day at 1pm, saturday afternoon - another sellout and raucous atmosphere. Hes barely been in Pittsburgh a year and he's talking about Penguins hockey and attendance? He came from Dallas! And, does he know the Pens almost moved because they werent drawing flies?

I was going to post this in the Leafs GDT thread but I often think our fanbase doesnt get enough credit. Yeah we dont fill the barn every game but our fans are loud.

In comparison, the ACC is a funeral home (like most canadian rinks)! What a sterile, quiet, soul-less arena that is. Sure, its full, but seats are empty half of the period, there are few chants, people dont even stand up when a goal is scored, the PA guy sounds constipated with his accent, theres no organ, suits everywhere, etc...I'm sure the Rock is a much better atmosphere.

Like it or not bandwagon fans help fill the seats, stupid comment by Neal aside.

Saw this guy's NHL 36 episode and he's a tool. He's chirping on the ice to a player saying hes a loser and always will be.
Umm, youve been on the Dallas Stars your whole career, who are you to talk? Youve barely been in Pittsburgh a year and you think you're hot sh!t already? Win a playoff series first.

Cant wait til he hears us St Patty's Day.

I was thinking the same thing about Saturday's game, about how hopefully we bombard the Pens with goals and cheers -- not just to shut Neal up, but to shut up that whole organization, including their TV announcers. (I realize, of course, that first we have a game to play tonight.)

The crowd needs a chant to embarrass him. Neal over? Neal sucks? go home Neal?
