The Pens get my vote for most bandwagoners

Shame Pittsburgh didn't trade for Brodeur. He could be starting Game 5 for them. He couldn't be any worse.

"The Stanley Cup has fallen from the Stars. The new millennium has its first Stanley Cup Champion, and it's the New Jersey Devils." Mike Miller calling the Devils winning the Stanley Cup.

"It goes to the captain and then there are handoffs during a skate around the ice" Mike Emrick as Scott Stevens is being presented the Stanley Cup.

Yikes. Marc-Andre struggling again in the playoffs. If he can't turn things around will he be on his way out of Pittsburgh. Dan Bylsma may be on his way out as well if they lose.

Does anyone else agree with this? I think the Pens would be okay if they had Vokoun backing up as another option.  Zatkoff is hardly a proven backup.  I think in addition to MA Fleury being terrible in clutch/playoff situations, the Pittsburgh defense has been horrid.  They think that Paul Martin is a god, which while he is speedy and can shut down guys okay, but I think the Pens defense is being exposed in this series.  I'm really pulling for CBJ in this series.  They have Stempniak playing on the top line with Crosby and Kunitz, that's a joke. 

More poor playoff play from Fleury, he's done, going to CGY, or NYI, EDM, maybe Tampa.  I predict Bylsma is done if they get beaten by the BJackets in the first round. I mean, then again, the Pens struggled last year against NYI, and I feel they had a stronger roster last year.

They'll sign him to a one year deal July 1st before signing Cory next July 1st.

Only thing Brodeur will be signing on July 1 might be an autograph.

Fleury is bad and i love making fun of that situation. But geez, the guy has Crosby, Malkin, Neal and Kunitz on his team. He should have a bigger cushion in term of goal support.

Man I don't know who has more bandwagon fans: The Blackhawks or the Penguins.

 

Blackhawks, for sure. As far as this area's concerned, there are a number of Pittsburgh residents living in New York; good colleges there land them good jobs in NYC which is the nearest mega-city, really. So I trust that a good amount of the Pens fans that come to The Rock are more or less legit.

 

But Chicago?... How many people around here you know that have roots in Chicago? Every kid I've ever seen in (usually) a brand new Blackhawks jersey talking smack at The Rock had the Jersey/New York accent to boot... schmucks.

Yeah I've kept thinking Fleury or Bylsma are the end of their leash every postseason, but I've always been wrong.

I don't think the 3rd goal was that bad. It's not really Fluery's fault the puck bounces over his stick, he didn't mishandle it or anything. Maybe he should have stayed in his net, but the blue jackets won the race to the puck as it were and maybe they score anyway and the conversation becomes about Fluery being too timid to pay the puck.

 

The OT goal was way worse, he has to stop a half speed, clear vision shot from way above the circles.

On a 2 year contract with the Devils. 

 

Fleury has become the Chuck Knoblouch (sp?) of goalies.  The guy loses his confidence so easily it paralyzes his ability to play the game.  If it wasn't so funny, I'd feel bad for him.

There is no chance the Devils or any other right minded hockey team signs Brodeur to anything more than a 1 year deal. Brodeur is a last resort option, he is a terrible goaltender. He may even enter the season unsigned and only be offered a contract when somebody loses their backup.

gosh when i lived in chicago the bandwagoners were terrible. it's all fratboy drunkards that can't pronounce toews' name correctly. taking the bus to games, i would listen to pure idiocy going around - it was just awful. this was when the hawks were starting to really find their game. granted, the idiots DID make the atmosphere pretty fun at the united center so it was always a fun time anyway...unless the devils lost - which was EVERY single game i've ever attended in chicago. =/ i was conflicted when john madden scored on us, he seemed a little TOO amped about it haha. never really got sh!t for wearing a devils jersey to games though.

Most of them just saw red and black and couldn't tell the difference because they were too drunk.

The Pens vs CBJ series is crazy.  4 straight games a team had a 3-1 lead and ended up losing 4-3.  WTF?!
