I'm not sure which part of this I like better...That Yzerman's team won or that the Penguins are out.

(Now that the Pens and Chicago have been eliminated, who are the refs going to help?)

Pens outplayed them to be honest. They just can't score without Malkin/Crosby. Caps will win the next series.

So... Is Stamkos the "new", face of The NHL, now that the 3 previous years faces have been eliminated.

Pardon my language here, but f*** the Penguins. I'm glad they got ousted. Also, because I want to see this gain some steam here, congrats to the Yzerbolts!

You forget that Caps are in round two. Ovie will be the face of the NHL in round two over Stamkos.

That Pittsburgh crowd was so quiet, I know they get monster TV ratings but their crowd is very underwhelming.

This is the first season that I've actually started rooting for another team besides the Wings (well, except for anyone that the Pens or Hawks play). Hope the Bolts can push farther in but they are facing a well rested Caps team.

How happy am I that the Pens were eliminated early this year? Very. I never heard the end of it last year because the Wings were eliminated after 5 games in round 2 and it took the Pens 7 to be eliminated by Montreal because supposedly that makes the Pens better.

I'm going to hear all about how the Pens would of won the cup with Crosby or Malkin tommorrow though. :rolleyes:

Congrats Yzerman!

Could be true though, 2 of the 3 best players in the world would be a significant part of any team.

I'll look forward to Neal putting up 60 goals next year though.

Grats to yzerman, real impressive first year as a GM.

Definately, I just get tired of hearing about it everyday since I live in Pens territory and they love teasing me about the Wings

Pretty tough to win in the playoffs when your best players are injured, eh Pittsburgh?
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Most Pens fans are Steelers fans that are very fair weather and don't pay attention to the hockey team until Feb. When Fleury got the shutout in Game 1, they were "we're going to win the Cup!". When they lost Game 2, "the refs want this to be Ovechkin's year". :rolleyes:

I hate to break it to you, (actually, no I don't,) but Malkin is not a top 3 player in this league. James Neal 60 goals? :hysterical: If he had the talent to be a 60 goal scorer, I think he would have scored more than 2 in his 27 games as a Penguin.

How happy am I that the Pens were eliminated early this year? Very. I never heard the end of it last year because the Wings were eliminated after 5 games in round 2 and it took the Pens 7 to be eliminated by Montreal because supposedly that makes the Pens better.

Welcome to my world where the Pens never do anything wrong (in the minds of the fans and writers) and if they lose, they were cheated.

Posted Image Way to go Bolts!! Great win for the organization and the soon to be GM of the year award winner! Keep it up and got to say I am definitely pulling for them in their series with the Caps as well.
