I know you don’t watch hockey and are making a sarcastic reply, but nothing is a given this year. Some of the bottom teams like Buffalo and New Jersey are showing well and making a push. A good team is going to miss the playoffs. I still don’t think it will be the Pens but they have some real deficiencies showing right now.What are their playoff chances now?
I promise you they will be in the playoffs.I know you don’t watch hockey and are making a sarcastic reply, but nothing is a given this year.

Sullivan believes these games are won in the other teams end, when actually they are won in the neutral zone.Had a 5-2 lead, but end up losing 6-5 in OT.
It was Mario and his partner who threatened to move the Pens, if they did not get a new arena deal to their liking.Pretty funny that they honored Free Lunch Franco tonight. He joined a group to try and move the Pens awhile back. Cardboard Carrying Franco was a turncoat.
Crazy to bring the entire team back under the same coach.The Penguins core is aging and the front office is riding them into the sunset rather than rebuild. So you will get flashes of spectacular play that makes you want to buy another 87 or 71 jersey. And you will get duds like last night.
Father Time/they’re all getting old is valid and will keep getting put out there as it ain’t going away.Father Time is Undefeated.
Does Sullivan last until the half way mark?Crazy to bring the entire team back under the same coach.
If you wanted to give this team a chance, you needed a new coach.
If you believe in the coach, you needed a different team.
Personally, I do not want a coach that does not physically protect his players.
The national broadcast crew harped on that a bit.
Yeah, I made a post saying they strung up all those losses but weren’t necessarily getting out skated.Actually they are getting outskated pretty much nightly since the west coast swing. The opponent is dominating possession and offensive zone time. I know it is very early but, the signs are there that it is likely the year they miss the playoffs. They are old, look slow and they all just look to comfortable. Maybe even more concerning is that they have forgotten how to play with a lead.
Especially when many saw it coming with the Pens and screamed to make an overhaul…but nooooo…..I envy those people who aren't into sports. LOL. Because locally, being a sports fan sucks right now.
