  1. No doubt that's what the box score would indicate, but actually watching the whole series tells a different story. Only 2 of those goals were scored on Penguin ice when Pit could dictate matchups - a garbage goal in a blowout and a slapper on a bad change. Scuds wasn't on the ice for either. Is he worth $3M? No way. But the perception is that he had a great playoff run and shut down Ovechkin, true or not.
  2. Chicago isn't out of the question either.
  3. That's what a great playoff run (including shutting down Ovechkin) will do for you.
  4. Sorry. Shero ain't gonna let him get away for $1.5M. The rumor is he's already offering $2M, but it's highly probably he'll get offers of $3M or more after July 1. It's going to come down to how much Scuds wants to stay a Pen. Most think he'll take the cash and no one can blame him.
  5. Fischler's pretty sharp. Not a lot of writers recognize that Guerin succeeded all expectations.
  6. Saying it was dirty is certainly over the top. However, if Sid held, it was long after the interference had already taken place. If they weren't going to call it, Sid BETTER hold to keep Franzen from gaining an unfair advantage.
  7. It wasn't dirty, but it's a clear interference. He has every right to hold Sid up because Sid nicked the puck with his stick. But he's NOT allowed to go out of his way to do it, which he blatantly did. It wasn't anything more than they were getting away with all series though.
  8. No. But is he so terribly classless because it didn't occur to him while on pain killers during the greatest moment of his life? I understand the frustration, but I thought your fans were better than all this whining.
  9. Letting the classless posters (in the minority here) make asses of themselves.
  10. Watch again. After Lidstrom shakes Dupuis' hand, he waits exactly 17 seconds before skating off. Synch it up to footage of Sid's interview and you'll see that Sid was still giving the interview at this time, and not celebrating with the coaches. He skated directly to Franzen as soon as the interview ended - Lidstrom was already gone. Who are the whiners now?
  11. Before you try to teach, you should learn to spell.
  12. I hated Therrien with all my being. now Shero needs to prove he's not a one-hit-wonder. He need look no further than the Wings organization for a model of how it's done.
  13. true. it's gonna be tough and the farm system will have to produce. thank goodness they didn't sign Sid and Geno for Ovechkin money. They both could have gotten it.
  14. OP: not cool. Don't you remember how you felt last year at this time?
  15. The conventional wisdom is that Malkin will eventually go, but he actually likes things the way they are right now. That may change as he learns better english, but he prefers the shadows right now. His contract matches Sid's, he hates interviews, and the fans LOVE him. Personally, if I had to choose, I'd rather let Sid go someday, but I think Staal will get traded before either of the big guns. And how can Shero be considered just "OK?" The guy pulled every string right this year. Letting Malone go, trading useless Whitney for a great prospect + a bonus winger for Sid, getting Guerin's leadership at the deadline, having the balls to fire a Cup Finalist coach that was killing his team, giving a rookie coach the reigns, signing Staal for a reasonable (and tradeable) price, and signing Malkin long term. All leading to a Cup. That's a career right there. I never liked "The Kid" nickname. It can't die soon enough.
