What a bitter bunch of babies are the Wings Fans? I am glad the way it worked out. Heck the Pgh Pirates even beat the sorry ass Tigers today after we showed them the cup. Detroit is a crime ridden rathole with pathetic fans!!


Oh the irony.

Definition of icing - What the refs don't call when the Pens score the first goal in game 7. Hockeytown......just like the Cowboys are America's team. Give me a break. They even took the Cup to PNC Park today so the Tigers Players could see what it looks like up close. By the way, Tigers lost as usual. Sid the Kid for Pres!!!!

if you throw away all the goals the penguins scored , you guys swept us in four games with four shutouts!
no more excuses, no more sour grapes. we beat you 4 out of 5 games. you scored 1 goal in each of the two games you could have eliminated us. so yes, i would say we earned. third team ever to win the cup in game seven on the road.

......congratiulations on another spectacular season as always and i hope we see you next year again.



You capitalized on the injuries. Congratulations, well done but don't get too excited and act like you pummeled a healthy team. You barely beat us and our key guys were playing injured.


Do or do not. There is no try

Why should I go anywhere? I'm not a Penguins fan. I don't patronize the boards of other teams as I am not a fan of those teams and therefore neither the conversation nor the people would interest me.



Got a problem, son?

Pittsburgh DID earn the Cup.

There is no conspiracy here. Did some of the calls blow? Absolutely. But they blew for every team in every round of this playoff run. The Pens won because they wanted it more. These teams were far more evenly matched than they were last year and it became more and more obvious to me as time went on. I'd even go so far as to say that if the series went to 8 games, we'd been seeing a 4-4 tie.

It was dead even. But in the final game, Pittsburgh made that extra push and we just didn't. That's all there is to it.

A new Lemieux-McCarty fight, as seen by internet forum posters.

Lemieux cheapshots a player with his walker, drawing the ire of D-Mac, who hobbles over. They draw their canes, salute, and cross them, then proceed to repeatedly whack eachother over the heads while hanging onto the bench with their other hands for balance. D-Mac then hits Lemieux's hip, which gives out, Lemieux feebly falls to the ground, crumpling as D-Mac continues to land barely noticeable Yoda-esque cane strikes. Lemieux's age begins catching up to him, crying "what a world, what a world..!" as he melts into a puddle of goo.

If you ain't a Penguins fan why do you want them here, just so you can laugh. They can laugh at us for choking TWICE.

If they're going to be here, they might as well entertain us and reading their pathetic attempts to get people angry is entertaining. They want to get people yelling and screaming and ranting at them so they can scurry back from whence they came and gloat that they got under our skin. If we laugh at them, their feeble attempts at trolling aren't working. Sooner or later, they'll get pissed off that they can't make us angry and leave. There's a method to this dear, follow along.


Furthermore, you better not be questioning my fandom. Consider that a gentle reminder.

I'm so glad this is over in one aspect regardless of whether the Wings won or lost.

Officating in any sport is going to be inconsistent and there are going to be blown calls or bad ones in every game. Get the f**k over it. It is not a difficult concept to understand.

There is no officiating conspiracy or purposefully handing Pitt the Cup no matter how much you want to belive it, no matter how much attention Crosby or Pittsburgh gets, whatever.

Detroit had their chance. Twice. They didn't do it. They have nobody to blame but themselves for that.

Get over the refereing slant.

well, not to fuel the fire on the refs but..... Orpik allowed to two hand Cleary.....




Look how close the ref is looking at the situation, like he is looking to make sure Orpik doesn't commit a penalty, or maybe he was just looking to see if Cleary had swabbed out his ears that morning...

The NHL is a first and foremost a business. They will do whatever they have to do to increase revenue. I do think that the league/officials had a bias and gave the Pens a favorable call in terms of timing, getting the first power play, etc. At the same time, I think it is something the Red Wings can overcome. Like it or not, it's part of the game and I think they knew that.

just to be clear........ you are saying the NHL instructed ALL the ref's and linesmen to give the Pens preferrential treatment? To disrupt redwings momentum etc?
