Gameday 29+4: A Flower Grows In Vegas

The first ever meeting between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Vegas Golden Knights takes place tonight, and it’s probably the most important first meeting out of the thirty teams the Golden Knights will face.   Of course, Vegas GM George McPhee did the Penguins a big favor by agreeing to take Marc-Andre Fleury off Pittsburgh’s hands, opening the door for Matt Murray to not just stay in Pittsburgh but take the starting position for certain.  But the Flower was an integral part of the revival of the Penguins as a Stanley Cup contender.  Fleury was a winner for the Penguins after years of shuffling goaltenders in and out of their crease, and he ended up taking all the goaltending records away from the next-best goaltender in Pens history, Tom Barrasso.  Three Cups later, Fleury was magnanimous in accepting a move to the new guys on the block, and he started well for the Golden Knights until being felled by a concussion that he is conveniently recovering from just in time to face his old mates.

FRK THIS FACE : D

The Golden Knights were expected to play the role of typical expansion team in their inaugural season, but they have ignored those rules and their hot start through thirty games has them three points behind the Los Angeles Kings in the Pacific Division.  This despite going with goaltending-by-committee, as Fleury, Malcolm Subban, Maxime Legace, Oscar Dansk, and Dylan Ferguson(?) have all manned the blue paint for Vegas thus far.  It hasn’t just been the goaltending keeping the Knights in contention, with six players recording twenty-plus points, led by William Karlsson, Jon Marchessault, and former Penguins James Neal and David Perron.  On defense, Brayden McNabb, Nate Schmidt, former Penguin Deryk Engelland, and Luca Sbisa have done their jobs in keeping enough goals off the board.  It’s been exciting hockey to watch in Vegas, to say the least: they sit 5th in goals scored and 12th in most goals allowed.  I think it’s safe to say that, even if the Golden Knights fall out of playoff contention, they will have no reason not to be proud of their performance in bucking the trend of unimpressive first seasons by expansion teams.

 

The Good

Vegas is good. There’s no hiding it. In December alone they’re 4-2-1, although four of those five games were decided in OT. The Knights are shooting a lot, and when they shoot 39+ times they automagically win the game so says this blog.

If Letang/Dumo/Hunwick/Maatta/Michalek can suppress Vegas’s shot total this should be a win. VGK lost last night (MAF’s first night back, too) with only 24 shots on net, securing Cam Ward’s 300th win.

The Bad

This goal against Fleury last night.

Some quality hockeyporn there: “The puck, it looks like it just rides up his shaft and obviously surprises Fleury”

Not Marc-Andre’s fault, but jeeze, sucks.

The Ugly

Honestly, with as good as Vegas is on the ice, their management might be the worst in the business. They have no possibility of keeping one of their nineteen goalies healthy. If VGK was playing poorly instead of jumping off on hot streaks, everyone would be flipping shit about this Shipachyov saga, but then again if my grandma had wheels she’d be a bike.

This Puck Daddy post breaks it down:

Shipachyov wasn’t playing well enough to supplant even the No. 4 center on the roster. This is an incredible statement to make, because in their most recent game, Vegas used Pierre-Edouard Bellemare as its No. 4 center, and he only got a whopping 10:34 of ice time, second-lowest total on the team.

The idea we’re supposed to buy, then, is that Shipachyov wasn’t good enough to take 10 and a half minutes of ice time against fourth liners and do better than Bellemare (currently a 45 percent possession player with 2-1-3 in 15 games against bottom-of-the-barrel competition).

Even if you were to believe this, so McPhee brings an aging Russian who never played in North America at $4.5 million for two seasons??

 

Even funnier though, VGK was all about Shipachyov even trolling Penguins fans by claiming number 87 for him.

This tweet irritated a lot of our fanbase for whatever reason:

 

Let’s score some goals tonight. Please.

      Don’t worry – when the guy who beats Trump in 2020 comes in he’ll flip it around again.

      In the meantime, I will hold out hope that competition improves and helps to regulate the market a bit.

      On the whole, though, this seems shitty. I was reading that about 40% of people only have access to one quality ISP. I don’t see a current circumstance where that/those ISP(s) don’t hose those customers.

      • Jovi

        3 years is a long time to deal with crappy internet. You can’t go 3 seconds with 2 bars on your phone

        • Sleve_Scoobert_HawtDoge

          Fortunately the ISPs probably don’t have the infrastructure in place to hose erreyone immediately, they’ll have to slowly work up to it, and then maybe by then there will be new rule in place.

        • Exactly. When designing websites if you develop something that takes over 4 seconds to load it’s game over. They will leave.

          • You’re not an idiot but you do constantly play devils advocate to see if we didnt explore some hidden gem that might make this a good thing somehow.

            On this topic I dont think a stone has been left unturned. It’s bad for the customer all around. Existing ISPs are not going to suddenly want to make less money

      • The66thDopefish

        That percentage would of course increase if Time Warner and AT&T merge.

        • Ungaba

          Wouldn’t that behoove local governments to do what they can to invite competition like Kansas City and Austin did with Google Fiber?

          I’m just saying this doesn’t have to be the end of the world.

          • SouthSideGeno

            The internet IS the world…isn’t it?

            This changes erreything

          • The66thDopefish

            Google Fiber didn’t get any traction beyond those two localities. Chattanooga also started its own ISP regardless of this rollback of regulations. Local governments have and will continue to have the right to start their own ISPs or bring others in.

          • Sleve_Scoobert_HawtDoge

            We need mesh networks or whatever they’re called. lets do that, no need for ISPs at all. The FUBU of Internets!

          • Ungaba

            You(?) or someone posted a link on that awhile ago. Those seem neat-o, but you still are putting it in the hands of people that can abuse it. I mean, what if I don’t feel like getting a better piece of hardware that would be commensurate with my usage as a Bitcoin miner? I’m taking more than I’m giving and that’ll make people mad, right?

          • Sleve_Scoobert_HawtDoge

            Except you can control how much people can take from you, just like bit-torrent. And really it only would work in population dense areas, but still….

          • Sleve_Scoobert_HawtDoge

            I know it’s a pipe dream ,but stop shizzing all over my HOPES!

          • SouthSideGeno

            I’ma invent a HOPE BIDET

          • The66thDopefish

            I read that as “Joe Biden” and somehow it makes sense

          • Ungaba
          • The66thDopefish

            As creepy as our current President?

          • Ungaba

            He can be creepy all on his own without having anything to do with L’Orange. Sheesh. You lefties are so touchy!

          • Sleve_Scoobert_HawtDoge

            The fact that you had a montage of Biden at the ready I think is the creepiest thing about the whole scenario here.. XD

          • Ungaba

            Pretty easy google search…

            At least until those searches cost $1.99 each, amirite????? ;-P

          • The66thDopefish

            I’m just saying, there’s a difference from “affectionate, I mean well by my touching” Joe Biden and “I’mma leer at you while you’re in various states of disrobing, also let me grab you by the pussy” Donald Trump. Are we not allowed to compare apples and oranges?

          • Ungaba
          • The66thDopefish

            It’s easy to search the Internet for pictures, especially ones gathered for you. How about finding any complaints (or even the same amount of complaints as Trump) that suggest that Biden sexually assaulted anyone? (Disregard what you may find on InfoWars.)

          • Ungaba

            Again, you’re trying to make my one mundane points about Joe Biden being creepy apply to something else entirely. Why?

          • The66thDopefish

            You made the connection between Biden being creepy. I’m saying there’s a high bar for creepiness and, to me, he’s well below it. But apparently touching others, even out of affection (which Biden is claimed to be doing, okay, not my cup of tea but I’ll let the recipient decide), is creepy.

          • Ungaba

            Nah, him touching others when they are obviously uncomfortable, or, in the case of the wee children, powerless to stop him, is what’s creepy.

          • The66thDopefish

            Okay

          • Sleve_Scoobert_HawtDoge

            Biden should not have done many of the things he did in these and other photos, and to be honest, if he’s willing to massage the shoulders of the incoming defense secretary’s wife during his swearing in ceremony, he’s probably doing worse stuff behind closed doors. He is part of the systemic abuse of power and position by people around the world. Veep Creep. Which sucks because I like him otherwise pretty much : / fuggin idiots…

          • Ungaba

            100% this! And that was my only point. Wasn’t even taking the political angle AT ALL. He mentioned Joe Biden and I recalled seeing this pictures and said, “he’s a creepy old man”, full stop.

            L’Orange is a disgusting male, too, but that wasn’t part of this story line.

          • Sleve_Scoobert_HawtDoge
          • Ungaba

            UGH. Yeah, that’s creepy. Imagine that big orange face and those little anus-looking lips coming at you as a small child. *shudders*

            Wait…

          • Ungaba

            It’s definitely a cool idea.

            I think the entire ‘landscape’ of internet service is going to be so very different in 5-10 years. I mean, how long ago was it that we were paying for minutes and texts on cell phones? And how long before THAT where you couldn’t get a cheap sell phone? I’ve had no fewer than 10 cell phones in the last 18-20 years, probably, and the phones get more expensive while what you do on them gets cheaper. It’s pretty fascinating.

          • The66thDopefish

            I’ve heard at least a couple of electrical engineers saying the same thing about the electrical grid, particularly when (if) solar becomes prevalent. There’s that hope again!

          • The66thDopefish

            Internet that only works in population-dense areas is still kind of the problem.

          • Sleve_Scoobert_HawtDoge

            Yeah… we need better super long range wifi. Can we bring Tesla back from the dead? Did he ever really die?

          • Ungaba

            Is that because Google didn’t get customers or because it was too expensive to expand to other markets? Was the service bad? Were they too expensive? I think there are lots of variables here, but there is one thing that’s pretty consistent – local governments make it really expensive to enter the market:

            https://www.wired.com/2013/07/we-need-to-stop-focusing-on-just-cable-companies-and-blame-local-government-for-dismal-broadband-competition/

            Yes, they have that right, but will they exercise it? Will the reversal of Net Neutrality get the people so worked up they go to their local governments and ask them to reduce the barriers to entry, maybe?

          • The66thDopefish

            IIRC, Google didn’t want to go into any community without that community first agreeing for them to come in. They went neighborhood by neighborhood getting people to sign up in Austin and KC and then (and only then) did they come in and do all the infrastructure. So, they had the customers.

            Price and service were not bad as far as I know. For all I know, Google Fiber still exists in those cities. (Not bothering to look because laziness.)

            Your article is from 2013…eons ago in the Internet era. I’m sure not much has changed since that article was authored, but it’s not like the right to protest and petition have been restricted to the point where concerned citizens can tell their government to change if they want it that badly. Which was kind of my point, re: hills to die on.

          • Ungaba

            So then the argument is because people / local governments are too lazy / can’t be bothered to invite more competition, the reversal of net neutrality is a bad thing because there’s no way anybody other than Comcast/Verizon/Time Warner will ever be in the market?

            The reversal of these rules is ‘bad’ if we presume everything stays the same. But I don’t think everything will stay the same.

          • Sleve_Scoobert_HawtDoge

      And does it with an explicit middle finger to every citizen that they “allegedly” work for.

      Governmental agencies don’t even have to bother with conspiratorial actions anymore, they just brazenly flaunt the fact that the citizenry has no input or influence on the process.

      I would say it’s something straight out of a dystopian fiction, but I don’t think even most dystopian fiction ever would have predicted that any organization, however powerful, could be so candid in their dismantling of peoples’ access to information.

            I indulged the possibility that raining Letang could go viral, at Bren’s suggestion. I thought I could do the blog a solid. It didn’t go viral, and I realized that other than about 15 people here, no one really gives a shit about esoteric pens gifs. So I’m not doing it anymore. No I didn’t think the watermark would go viral.

    Excited to pick up my daughter at the airport in a few minutes! I’m going to take her to the beach, then convince her she’ll probably want about a 3 hour nap at mmm.. around 7pm because she will probably be too exhausted from traveling 😉

    • Ungaba

      Entirely reasonable.

      OR, and hear me out on this one, you get her some Pens Gear and show her pictures of Letang’s Glorious Mane and, boom, she’s a fan and wants to watch the game with you!

      You’re welcome.

      (DISCLAIMER: this process did NOT work with the Unglings, but I’m not as persuasive as Randy)

      • Jovi

        Do your unglings have eyes, because my old roommate walked in the room, saw Tanger, and had a seat.

        • Ungaba

          Yeah, I guess they’re just not easily impressed. Maybe if it was on Instaface or Grambook they’d watch…

      • randy

        ok, I’ll try that, but are you sure you weren’t watching the game with ur unglings and said… look at that guy, isn’t his hair glorious? Oh he just gave the puck away, frk! Thanks Letang. And they’ve hated the pens ever since?

    • PensPointsYourMom

      agree but the pens played a shit ton of games in that first month, which led to a deceptively high level of points accrual, while carrying a very mediocre win%. In other words, they’ve been “middle of the pack” all season, they haven’t fallen off a cliff. Not good news, but not as stark a contrast as that graph would have you believe.

  • Finn Bonzalez
    • SouthSideGeno

    • Finn Bonzalez
    • PensPointsYourMom

      Mearsy? Is that you? I don’t understand how its even possible. But I also think those movies would kinda suck if it wasn’t ingrained in childhood.

      • Yeah dude try to watch the acting/dialogue of the originals as an adult. It’s… really not good

        • Big Poppa Vlad

          Part of them being so classic is they are kinda bad… not like Xanadu bad.. but not the best… now 6 and Rouge 1 changed that a lot (IMO). I still love the O.G. 3. but know what they are.

          • PensPointsYourMom

            The original 3, and the 2nd 3 to some extent, look bad because of the technology. But honestly, every one of the 8 films was state of the art when it was released. But yeah, they are nostalgic for me, that’s about it.

          • SouthSideGeno

            I love em all…some are dated…butt boi when they were brandy new and all shiny…sweet.

    • Penguin in Houston

      You should watch the first three.

      • SouthSideGeno

        At very lease the first two

      • Jovi

        the remakes or the original 3?

        • SouthSideGeno

          O 3 …Episodes 4-5-6

        • Big Poppa Vlad

          just the phrasing is great in the original 3.. “at that speed do you think you can pull out in time” and you can’t forget when he kisses his sister…

      • episode four is the first one

        • SouthSideGeno

          Yes

          • ” I tried episode four two years ago and it was horribad.”

          • SouthSideGeno

            IMO…Prawlly the worst of the franchise

          • THEN WHY ARE YOU ALL TELLING ME TO WATCH IT

          • you just said “at least the first two” and now youre saying its the worst of the franchise

          • j-b0t

            Because he’s a confused man.

          • j-b0t

            Though Episode 1 (first of the newer movies, released in 1997 or whenever, 99?) is AWFUL.

            All of the prequels are awful. My vote for worst goes to Revenge of the Sith, which most people seem to like, but it’s probably because people thought it was actually good, when it’s still terrible.

            Mike Nelson (head writer of Mystery Science Theater 3000, a show which is premised upon watching historically bad movies and lampooning them) has said that Episode 1 is the worst film he has ever seen.

          • SouthSideGeno

            Agreed…that is in fact what I was attempting to convey…thanks b0t butt

          • SouthSideGeno

            hahaha…my bad I though you meant the 1st movie of the 2nd Trilogy…movie 4
            Episode 4 was the First movie…it was TOTAL TITS IN 1977

          • I dont like anything about this lol.

            I just finished the Sopranos. It’s my favorite “trilogy”. My favorite part was the thirty fifth trilogy of it.

          • SouthSideGeno

            It is confusing…friggen start the story line in the dam middle why don’cha George

          • j-b0t

            stop yelling …we’re in agreement here…sheesh meesh …a human can’t make on lil tired mistype around here…sniff

          • SouthSideGeno

            Totally…stupid, cash grab….tainted the taint of Star Wars 4 eva

          • I’m in disagreement in that I watched half of episode 4 and as an adult watching it in 2015 it was garbage. I’m saying that aside from the dated special effects and saying it completely based on dialogue and acting. It was early doctor who level bad.

          • j-b0t

            You are allowed to be mistaken.

          • SouthSideGeno

            OH…HE’S ALLOWED…hmmmph!

          • FWIW I go through this shit all the time with my wife. She didnt watch any TV growing up and shes about 4 years or so younger than I am.

            So if I reference Rodney Dangerfield she doesnt know who he is. So we pull up material of his.. And.. She doesnt laugh once. I wouldnt either if I were viewing his material for the first time in 2017.

            She also finds MST3K really unfunny, which again, I might too if I just watched it for the first time

          • j-b0t

            The thing with Star Wars is, it was never meant to be a “great film”. It was essentially meant to be a throwback to old-timey Saturday sci-fi serials, but done in a loving way, which it did a very good job at. It’s a dumb, simple fantasy story done in a “different” universe. That’s it. But with the extreme cult and industry that it’s developed behind it, you go into watching the first one expecting it to be some grandiose earth shattering experience, and it’s just a simple dumb sci-fi fantasy. Of course it’s going to be unimpressive considering the culture that’s developed around it.

          • Wait, it was _meant_ to be campy? I don’t believe you

          • j-b0t

            It was meant to mimic old 30s/40s era TV serials, which are notorious for their stilted acting and over-the-top plot arcs, etc.

          • SouthSideGeno

            Classic good vs. evil…Dudley Doright/Snidley Whiplash stuff.

          • j-b0t

            Imagine listening to someone make a throwback old-timey radio program today, and being like “yeah, but their voices are all exaggerated, and those sound effects were clearly done on the spot in the studio, and that music is sooooo melodramatic”, that’s basically what you sound like with your critiques.

          • I have had no reason to believe that’s what it was meant to be. All I’ve heard all my life is how it was groundbreaking for it’s time, especially in things like the visual arts department. Furthermore I hear things like “these are not the droids youre looking for” quotes at least once a week which would make me believe the dialogue isn’t terrible either

          • SouthSideGeno

            It’s dated, not horrible…when it was released it was the moast awesome you could get..

          • ^ See.

          • SouthSideGeno

            Yuh…he’s a b0t…wut does he know bout us humans…other that to obey our every command

          • j-b0t

            It was groundbreaking in the sense that someone took classic story elements, and totally familiar, cliche-type narrative storytelling tropes, then weaved them into a new universe that made all of those old ideas seem fresh again.

            And the visual effects, in my opinion, still look better than 90% of the CGI that’s done today.

          • I’d never complain about the visual effects. I prefer them to CGI. Just everything else seemed campy and not in an intentional way

          • j-b0t

            Well since you’ve already made your conclusions about what it was trying to do, then obviously I can’t educate you otherwise.

          • SouthSideGeno

            Well then if yer done…could you go shovel the driveway : /

          • Easy there. I googled it and found a quote from Lucas

            “It’s not deliberately camp. I made the film in a 1930s style. It’s based on a Saturday matinee serial from the 1930s, so the acting style is very 30s, very theatrical, very old-fashioned. Method acting came in in the 1950s and is very predominant today. I prefer to use the old style. People take it different ways…”

            If that’s true and he’s not just backtracking to excuse it (I wouldnt know, I couldnt finish the halfway mark) then I’ll go back and re-try it

          • Because as you said, I was watching under false pretenses.

            I like Doctor Who, but only because going into it I knew it would be hokey and I had to sort of “meet it in the middle”

          • j-b0t

            It’s also additionally frustrating, because it’s difficult to find the ACTUAL original movies, because George Lucas has to go and ruin everything he does well, he had made a point to make “alterations” to the originals to make them more “in line” with the garbage prequels, and the changes he made are universally unnecessary and in some cases actually detrimental to the narrative and arc of the movies.

          • I didnt know he did this. He Kanye West’d it up and edited his work after release?

          • j-b0t

            Yeah.

            The most infamous one is the “Han shot first” scene. In the original, Han is confronted by a bounty hunter, intending to kill him and collect the bounty, and Han, because he’s an ice cold mother fucker, while the dude was monologuing sneakily pulled out his blaster under the table and just kills the guy.

            But then Lucas apparently thought that was not a “heroic” thing to do, so he then edited the scene to have the bounter hunter shoot first and “miss” then have Han shoot back. Which completely undermines his character.

          • PENS!

          • Wait so he changed it entirely to service the fans? lol

          • j-b0t

            Not even service the fans, because the fans HATED the change. Nobody knows who he was servicing. Most of the changes he made literally make no sense. I honestly think he lost his mind somewhere between the original films and the prequels.

          • j-b0t

            Like, in episode IV, he added a scene with Jabba that was cut from the original, and it’s totally unnecessary, because all it does is add time and more bad dialogue, and it makes NO SENSE in context of the rest of the story. You already know Han is on the hook for a debt, you already know he is on the run from people trying to collect his bounty, now the person who has the bounty out for him JUST HAPPENS TO BE IN THE SAME SPACE PORT ON THE SAME PLANET? Why was he sending out bounty hunters?

            Stuff like that.

          • SouthSideGeno

            b0t is correct about the built in campy…but only a small to medium degree.

          • j-b0t

            It is still not a WELL directed or well written movie, because George Lucas is not a good writer or director.

          • SouthSideGeno

            Butt there is an ARMY of clone freaks who would kill to just touch the hem of his cloak!

          • SouthSideGeno

            I could understand that…I’m still seeing it through 1977 eyes

          • I like Patton Oswalt’s bit about episode 1 “I dont want to know how the things i like are made i just like the things i like”

          • SouthSideGeno

            saw that…it was by far his funniest moment

          • j-b0t

            Definitely incorrect.

        • Penguin in Houston

          Yuh Duh. First ones made, ever!

    • j-b0t

      Empire Strikes Back is a legitimately good film. Fun fact: it’s also the only one which was NOT written and directed by George Lucas.

They are just hoving around and taking it easy until the start of the new year as usual. I think the Pens just like to have a good holidays and then its time for them to get off their asses and do something.

    Friggin 10 o’clock games!

    60 MINUTE WARNING…*finger tapping continues

  • Penguin in Houston

    Erreybody awakey? Vodka has commenced!

  • Finn Bonzalez
  • I caught SSG’s grumpiness. Or he caught mine. Or I was born with it.

    new gripe: Facebook needs a way to auto-detect (it auto-detects everything else) if you say “congrats” on a baby announcement not to ping me every minute for the next three weeks every time some rando says “congrats” after me. I don’t even know the person I said “congrats” to.

    Sure, I can auto unfollow it, but it’s dumb I have to do that

    • SouthSideGeno

      face fukbook…

    • Jovi

      tis true

    • PensPointsYourMom

      I’ve never had a facebook account, I don’t even know what you’re talking about.

      • Someone you barely know adds you.

        This person has a kid. You cant not say SOMETHING so you comment “hey congrats”

        Then his aunt comments “congrats” and you get a notification.

        Then his mom comments “congrats” and you get a notification.

        Then his uncle comments “congrads” and you get a notification.

        You can unfollow it, but it’s stupid that you have to put in the extra work to do that.

        • PensPointsYourMom

          That’s stupid. Thanks for the ‘splanation. Maybe you should erase your account.

          • All my pictures since I’ve been a functioning adult are on there and it’d make me sad. Also the dopamine drip of likes from life events feels nice.

          • j-b0t

            Wait a minute… when you post stuff it gets likes??

            No wonder I’ve never gotten addicted to it.

    RRRRRRRR UUUUUUUU READY TO RRRRRRRUUUUUMMMBBBLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL????

    LET’S

  • gutsgonebad

    Got back from the movies just in time.

    • PensPointsYourMom

      Star Wars? How was it? No spoilers please.

      • Did you see episode four? Was it bad?

        • SouthSideGeno

          dik

      • gutsgonebad

        It was really good. I avoided all spoilers which was very key.

  • Oh man I want us to score on MAF on the first shot on net. It will make my year

    • SouthSideGeno

      BEAT HIS ASS ALL NIGHT LONG

      • DAMN

        • SouthSideGeno

          Puckdrop…ENEMY

      • You _KNOW_ we are in his head.

        • shit

        • SouthSideGeno

          what lil he has left

        • Ungaba

          Not any more.

          • No. we are. I promise

          • The fucking cameraman from Magee women’s commercials is probably still in his head.

    • MoonStanley

      MAF WITH THE SHUTOUT!!! WOOOO!!!

  • shit.

  • Ungaba

    well fuck

  • fuck.

  • SouthSideGeno

    Trade Murray

    • MoonStanley

      Plz

  • PensPointsYourMom

    Maatta with the blown coverage.

    • Ungaba

      Thanks Maatta

  • Jovi

    Neal. Of course.

    • SouthSideGeno

      I killed him first in my gif

    • Ungaba

      Every team that gives up on Neal looks dumb, including us. All he does is score.

      • j-b0t

        Except for, you know, back to back cups?

  • MoonStanley

    JAMES NEEEAAALLLL!

    • Ungaba

      Um, booooo, bro. BOOOOO

      • MoonStanley

        I hope Murray gets pulled tonight LOL

        • Ungaba

          Who are you????

          • MoonStanley

            ♡ MAF. That never changed

          • SouthSideGeno

            TOTALLY LOVE …that enemy prick

          • MoonStanley

            CHOOO! CHOOO! ALL ABOARD THE MAF TRAIN!!

          • Ungaba

            No.

          • MoonStanley

            Weeee!

          • j-b0t

            Remember when Murray first came onto the scene, how the rhetoric was always people were cheering against Fleury?

            I’m glad the truth is finally uncovering itself.

          • MoonStanley

            Fleury was innappopriately thrown to the curve for your false prophet. I remember. I remember. ..

          • Ungaba

            Oh, it was appropriate.

          • MoonStanley

            Your mum is appropriate

          • j-b0t

            No, Fleury was fairly judged for his historic performances while people still rooted for him to be successful while he was on the team.

            Show me one instance where anyone ever said they hoped Fleury failed.

          • MoonStanley

            I will show you DEEZ NUTZ! 😀

        • SouthSideGeno

          good munkie…wanna naner?

    • SouthSideGeno

      go away munkie boi

    • PensPointsYourMom

      THE REAL DEAL JAMES NEAL?

    • Ungaba

      I *may* have to start down-voting you, Moon man…

      • He liked his own comment to make up for it

        • MoonStanley

          Lol 😉

  • Ungaba

    Simon is very calm. I like that.

    • PensPointsYourMom

      A potato on skates is also calm.

      • Ungaba

        I don’t know where to go with this. A potato isn’t on Sid’s wing?

        • PensPointsYourMom

          …agree to disagree

          • Ungaba

            Honestly? You don’t think he’s any good? You think Sully is that bad of a coach that he put a ‘potato’ on Sid’s wing?

          • PensPointsYourMom

            I think Sid makes otherwise mediocre players great. I also reserve the change my assessment if Simon does something. But if you’re gonna play with Sid, you better score.

      • SouthSideGeno

        #skateatoe

  • We need to get in MAF’s head. It will be the best thing ever. The floodgates will open.

    • Zooker

      Might be tough duty. His head prolly isn’t processing much these days…

      • Jovi

        ouch.

        • Zooker

          Yeah, felt kinda bad saying it. But brutal is funny sometimes if said with respect, right?…

          • Jovi

            No, no, you are an awful person and Santa will be taking a dump on your Christmas cake

          • Ungaba

            Reasonable.

          • Zooker

            How do you know that’s not what I asked for?

          • Ungaba

            ew.

    • MoonStanley

      Murrays already open 😀

  • Jovi

    i really wish Fleury was wearing a mic and we could hear all the trash talking

  • That pokecheck though.. I’m telling you he’s on the verge of letting us score 6

    • Ungaba

      You’re…. you’re ANTI cheering!! Holy shit, you WANT him to succeed!!!

      HE’S A PLANT!!! THE BLAWGCZAR IS WITH THE RUSSIANS!!!!!! ABORT THE BLAWG!!!!!!!!!!

      • j-b0t

        We’ve been calling him blawgczar for how long now? And you’re just now seeing the red connection??

        • Ungaba

          O M G LOOK AT YOUR AVATAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • I don’t want to drive you nuts @ungabaintrepid:disqus but:

          • This blog is “owned” by one person
          • It’s run off of the community
          • Everyone contributes equally-ish

          And it’s definitely a success. So.. Communism works?

          • MoonStanley

            Logic checks out

          • Ungaba

            Sure, when there are 20 people involved and basically no money. I’ll give you this one.

            Now do it with Russia.

            Oh wait…

          • I’ll do it with Russia, just wait

          • Wait, Russia is your mom’s name, right?

          • j-b0t

            o shit

          • Ungaba

            Ah, the ‘ol bait n’ switch.

            Nice.

          • Ungaba

            …waiting…

          • PensPointsYourMom

            Really? Where’s my share of the ad revenue comrade?

          • Ungaba

            potatoe!

          • We all share nothing and we’re happy regardless.

    • gutsgonebad

      He’s definitely due to make an ill advised play of the puck behind the net sooner or later

    • MoonStanley

      That was a beautiful play by a beautiful human!

  • Ungaba

    Shake Shack is so yummy…

    • Their portobello mushroom burger is so good

      • Ungaba

        Mushrooms are shitty.

        Literally.

        • PensPointsYourMom

          a lot more shit comes out of cows than mushrooms….literally

          • Ungaba

            Agreed.

            Now what?

        • MoonStanley

          Unless I’m trippin, I’m skippin da shrooms

  • SouthSideGeno

    I hate these stupid “On the Fly’ commercials

  • PensPointsYourMom

    Oh fuck Vegas, with a Shakeshack in their arena. Diks!

    • Ungaba

      SO YUMMMMMMMMMMMMYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

  • PensPointsYourMom

    That Hunwick play was AWFUL!!

  • SouthSideGeno

    • Ungaba

      #vegasfluisreal

    • gutsgonebad

      They spent too much time at the Spearmint Rhino last night.

  • Ungaba

    ‘Tanger’ just got his clock cleaned 3 times in 10 feet in 1 shift. Yoikes.

  • Jovi

    Damn, Vegas is kinda eating our lunch. They look really fast.

    • Ungaba

      It’s not lunch, it’s the buffet.

      And yes, they’re eating all of the good stuff. Like the cut meat and the fresh rolls and stuff. And leaving the potato salad that nobody wants because it looks sketchy because 2 hours near hot foods and heat lamps.

      • PensPointsYourMom

        Crab Legs or GTFO

    • Zooker

      Or the Pens look like they’re doing their unfortunately typical half-ass start. Or both.

  • Ungaba

    Oh that was pretty!!!!!!

  • PensPointsYourMom

    Nice

  • Zooker

    Nice delayed call Mears. Oh. FUCK YEAH!! Nice snipe by the Snake!

    • Ungaba

      Or maybe by the Cole?

    • Zooker

      Oops!! #wowimworsethanmears

      • Ungaba

        Maybe, but you have personality. I mean, at least online personality.

      • Ungaba

        Also, I like your consistency. You only show up in here during the games. That’s dedication. Many of us goofuses hang out here all damn day.

        • HIS dedication? Finn stays up until 6 AM!

          • Jovi is in the ER right now!

          • Rad is in a hospital right now!

          • I’m in ur mom rite now lol

            TURN ON THE PENS GAME, STAT!!!!

        • Zooker

          I check Now and again during the day for some smiles. Tough to be able to comment while at work. Highly regulated environment, etc..

          • Ungaba

            It’s all good. I feel happy knowing you’ll be here during the game.

  • Ungaba

    Wow that angle! Cole is a sniper!!!

    • Ungaba

      Balance?

      • PensPointsYourMom

        That’s what I’m thinking.

        • Ungaba

          It’s time for Sid to #harvestthepotatoes

          I’ll go now…

          • PensPointsYourMom

            That’s a good one. Feel no shame

          • Ungaba

            (I wasn’t leaving anyway – your mom wasn’t finished yet)

          • PensPointsYourMom

            Did you find the clitoris?

          • Ungaba

            Had to get my elbow wet, but I got there!

          • Zooker

            LOL. Damn, dude….

          • Ungaba

  • PensPointsYourMom

    THats the David Perron I remember

  • I want to know why Mooney isn’t rallying for Perron. Now there’s a personality!

    • MoonStanley

      Lol less personality than Murray

      • The great thing about Murray is he’s a blank slate. He’s any personality we want him to be.

        • MoonStanley

          Hahaha yet he chooses… gray

          • What makes a man turn neutral? Lust for gold? Power? Or were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?

          • MoonStanley

            If I die, tell my wife I said… hello

          • All I know is my gut says maybe.

          • MoonStanley

            Lol love it!

          • I have no strong feelings one way or the other.

          • MoonStanley

            You win by a mile

  • SouthSideGeno

    Great save buy Murray Post

  • Jovi

    Goalie Fight, any one?

  • Jovi

    Well the score could be a whole lot worse. Vegas is a good team (surprisingly).

    • Zooker

      Agree. The speed thing is real and their PK was very aggressive.

      • Jovi

        yes, and their goalie seems to have some skills.

        • Zooker

          Maybe that’s the major trade Grampa is looking to make…

          • Jovi

            maybe we get that Perron guy too, he seems pretty awesiiioooo, ok, I can’t do it.

  • Finn Bonzalez

    Jeezus.

    • Sleve_Scoobert_HawtDoge

      “You’re always fucking diving…”

      GIVE HIM THE DAMN FISH ALREADY! HE’S A MADMAN!

  • el Wray

    “You fucking baby”, who is mic’d up? This is great background talk.

  • MoonStanley

    This is a great game

  • Ungaba
    • MoonStanley

      As Cole interfered with him… or different play?

      • PensPointsYourMom

        same play

        • MoonStanley

          That didn’t bother me

    • PensPointsYourMom

      Is that the hit that makes us feel icky about defending his goal scoring prowess?

  • SouthSideGeno

    Is it me or does this game sorta suck…like it’s not living up to it’s hype?

    • gutsgonebad

      It’s just you

      • MoonStanley

        Yeah, fun, fast game so far

    • PensPointsYourMom

      The time of day has something to do with it.

  • Jovi

    heard it too. voice sounds familiar, so probably a pen or ex-pen. my guess is either neal or cole

    • el Wray

      I think I heard a slight Canadian accent, if we are sleuthing this out …

      • Ungaba

        Speaking of sleuthing, I paid attention to ‘Martini’ in the airport the other day and I really love what you did with the lights. No room for cans indeed, but you didn’t let that stop you! 🙂

  • gutsgonebad

    I wish they’d quit with the McPick 2 for 5 commercials, I just had it and I remember why I don’t eat that shit anymore

    • I’ve been cooking delicious homecooked meals for months and I still pine for McDonalds because IT TASTES SO GODDAMN GOOD

      • gutsgonebad

        No, you just think it does until you get half way through it. Then you feel like a disgusting pig

        • MoonStanley

          And have to wash it down with tums

          • gutsgonebad

            I only have 1 single tums left and it’s too cold to go get more. Fuck My Life

          • Ungaba

            Sorry, bro. But skip the MickeyD’s and you’ll be set!

          • gutsgonebad

            Where were you 2 hours ago with that wisdom?

        • maybe YOU do. I dont until an hour later. And then my bidet feels it.

      • el Wray

        Yeah yeah, but how do we fell about Chic-fil-A?

        • Ungaba

          Oh no, please no.

  • Ungaba

    PENS ONLY HAVE EIGHT SHOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    WTF?????????

    • Yeah dude elite defenseman Deryk Engelland is on the ice

    • SouthSideGeno

      TRADE ERREYBODY…except Shehanny and Schultz

    • Here we go, picking it up now

    • Jovi

      are you watching the game! Pens will hopefully show up in the 3rd

    • el Wray

      They are playing a game where every Penguin has to touch it before they’ll shoot.

      It’s one of the last achievements they need for plat.

      • Ungaba

          Wow. Look at you current gaming event guy.

          • Ungaba

            (I saw it on the interwebs…. you kids seemed excited about it)

          • UlfSammySon

            Not EA and their micro transaction bullying.

          • el Wray

            He learns fast!

    • SouthSideGeno

      That’s kinda wut I meant when i said this game kinda sucked

  • Ungaba

    Hagelin – Sheahan – Sheary

    The Doghouse Line.

    • PensPointsYourMom

      100% this

    • Finn Bonzalez

      Is Sheahanigan in the doghouse?

      • randy

        He’s been promoted to the doghouse line

      • PensPointsYourMom

        he’s playing with Hags and Sheary isn’t he?

        • Finn Bonzalez

          Because he isn’t as good as Sid/Geno puts him in the ‘doghouse’?

  • You know how boring this season has been?

    Let me tell you by DATA.

    We have been getting 15-16 hockeyporn quotes a night because we’re too busy listening for something to be entertaining rather than watching.

    Finally we have a game where we’re WATCHING and there hasn’t been a single hockeyporn entry

    • SouthSideGeno

      I had one

      • ONE

        • SouthSideGeno

          SO I WIN….yipieeeeee!

    • Finn Bonzalez

      Maybe we’re just better at porn this season?

      • randy

        Well, Errey’s better at porn. He’s always getting better

        • Finn Bonzalez

          He’ll develop to the point he has to be removed from the broadcast

          • randy

            Fact: my ex gf broke up with me and ended up marrying a porn producer right after. Then got divorced 5 years later

          • Ungaba

            Wow. That got real fast.

    • MoonStanley

      Great insight!

    • Jovi

      i don’t know the name of the announcers i’m watching, so no HP from me.

  • Ungaba

    Fleury just did the 09 save…

    • PensPointsYourMom

      Dat Sid pass tho!

    • MoonStanley

      😀

  • Letang goes offside for no real reason

    • Zooker

      Beat me to it. That did not look good

    • randy

      Trade him for Stempniak

    • el Wray

      Then brings it out of the zone for no reason, ugh

      • randy

        It probably rolled off his stick. The Tanger keeps it in 9999 of 10000 times

        • Ungaba

          ummmm… no

    • MoonStanley

      A lot of brainfarts from dat dude

  • Finn Bonzalez

  • Jovi

    FLeury is playing the villain quite well

  • Ungaba

    Just played Gorillaz, @jovi00:disqus

    Music still suck????

    • They also played Run the Jewels earlier

      • Ungaba

        I believe you? Literally never heard them that I know of, though I’m sure I’ve heard them.

        I think.

      • gutsgonebad

        and Mr. Brightside

      • Jovi

        who?

        • Ungaba

          (see below)

      • SouthSideGeno

        Did they used to be named Kick the Nuts?

    • Jovi

      gorillaz is exceptable, but why is it covered in a hair-ball of crappy other music

  • Ungaba
    • PensPointsYourMom

      …eyes in the back of his head (think about it)

      • Because potatos have eyes?

        • PensPointsYourMom

          yuh huh

          • Ungaba

            boo

          • Wow that joke was really CORNY (because potatoes aren’t corn, get it?)

          • PensPointsYourMom

            so it wasn’t corny?

          • Ungaba

            no

  • SouthSideGeno

    WE R SKOARING ON THIS POWER UP

  • Finn Bonzalez

  • PensPointsYourMom

  • PensPointsYourMom

    “and somehow he kept those pillows tight to the ice” Bob #HP

  • Zooker

    Nice. Just heard the Ace Ventura slamming the balcony door scene on their Jumbotron. Classic

  • Bee Gees! And yinz say they play BAD music!

  • el Wray

    PP not looking good so far, Vegas hasn’t been giving them an inch of ice to work with. Aggressive PK working out well so far …

    • Ungaba

      It’s so close to HP it’s like you’re docking with HP but not ‘finishing’…

          • PensPointsYourMom

            but you’ll refer to cervical mucus as “lady gravy?”….hypocrite

          • randy

            Lady gravy? You’re thinking of PB&J

          • PensPointsYourMom

            “grape” jelly or GTFO

          • randy

            Why grape? Or should I even ask??

  • Playin’ RTJ again

    • PensPointsYourMom

      Better than ELP

      • Ungaba

        YEP

      • Finn Bonzalez

        Electric Light Porchestra?

        • PensPointsYourMom

          Emerson Lake and Palmer…although Electric Light Porkestra would be a funny name for a band.

          • I thought you meant El-P who is half of RTJ

          • (and has his own career)

          • PensPointsYourMom

            What is it with you, me and music hijinks?

    • Ungaba

      That riff is good.

      I’m also thinking it’s a sample? Or am I not giving them enough credit?

        • Youre giving them just the right amount of credit. Paul’s Boutique is a classic and it’s nothing but samples

          • Ungaba

            Pulling the ‘jewels’ out of the rubble that is some of that old ass garbage music is definitely a talent.

        • Ungaba

          WOW this is a bad song.

          But that’s still a great riff.

            He’s da best.

          • I’m joking but also not – there’s a reason SSG is tired of doing it. You have to click “load more comments” wait for it to load the comments, scroll down, repeat, and do that like 30 times. Then ctrl+f for “hp” and copy. Tab. Paste. Repeat 15 times or so. Take all of THOSE and put them in the google spreadsheet, etc. It’s something that should take maybe 5 minutes but it winds up taking way way longer.

            So what you’re saying is that disqus sux? Reasonable.

            should be an easier way we all could help out. kinda of like how MR drops a bundle at the end of the game. If each commenter could just re-post the comments they found at the end.

          • That’s rad but takes too much of a burden on everyone else

            Ideally there should be some sort of a bot that could scan the comments, or maybe have a poll that let users add options

      • Jovi

        so does this mean McPhee (or whatever) is smart?

        • MoonStanley

          He had better rules to work with than previous expansions, but I vote yes

          • Ungaba

            No. Not really. Aside from the coach decision. Gallant is good.

          • MoonStanley

            Florida frkd up firing him, especially how it went down

          • Big Poppa Vlad

            NHL helped him a ton. But he made the right picks. The NHL set this up so he would get some decent players.. He had Perron with a chip on his shoulder fall into his lap and Neal with the same… Mix in a few contract dumps and end of contract dumps.. and you have this.

          • Jovi

            I guess so. I thought for sure he was mental when he picked mostly D. How can you run an offense with 20 D! Guess he’s laughing now.

  • Jovi

    Happy for fleury but Vegas sucks for not giving him the FLEURY chant
    Sad.

    • MoonStanley

      I heard it!! 1st or 2nd period

  • PensPointsYourMom

    Izat 4 in a row? or just 3?

    • Ungaba

      3, dammit.

    • Midnight Rider

      Too many.

  • Zooker

    I would be surprised if Vegas can bring that level to every game. Maybe chalk it up to the playing the 2 x champs as the FNGs with something to prove.

    • Midnight Rider

      I think that’s errey team the Pens play this season. Heavy is the head that wears the crown, and can’t buy a 5v5 goal.

    • Ungaba

      20-9-2 would like to have a word with you…

      • Zooker

        Can’t argue. Hookers and Blow must really help…

  • PensPointsYourMom

    Ok so I think we should trade Bren and PiH for Pelts and Islander. Pelts brings a ton of grit.

    • Islander just brings loneliness

      • PensPointsYourMom

        We need depth in the bottom 6

        • We have enough grit though, we have GGB.

    • SouthSideGeno

  • Finn Bonzalez

      • DONT. DO. IT.

        • MoonStanley

        yes, but you are a WHORE

        • randy

          I am a whore for Jesus.

          • Jovi

            Mary Mag, is that you?

    Hey! Did Fleury get his ring today???

    OMG if they give it to him on the ice in Pitt (tears)

  • Lose in a 2-1 game. Why would we need a “major shake up” from GMJR for a defenseman? I could go for some good ol fashioned offense. Unless.. major shake up is a code… “MajorShakeUp” and “Mark Letestu” are both 12 characters…

    • PensPointsYourMom

      Get into it Tom Hanks…so dark the con of letestu

    • Jovi

      I’d rather no trades but just some tough love. start sitting some players. Maybe try the old “you suck at life” speech that Sully used the 1st time.

      • PensPointsYourMom

        If I’m guessing, the tough love has been handed out already

        • SouthSideGeno

          Ole King Cole…???

      • A trade is the toughest love of all.

        There could be a man out there who is obsessed with Teeing off the puck into the net. A “Tee Slut” if you will.

        And his name might be an anagram of that.

        • Big Poppa Vlad

          Staal? I don’t see it..

          • Oh he brings better chemistry than Staal.

          • Big Poppa Vlad

            Teemu?

          • He’s a playmaker, he makes great music. As long as you don’t steal his “Lute set”.

          • PensPointsYourMom

            Finn was just advertising lute sets.

          • SouthSideGeno

            …for the butt

          • You know what you would be called if you stole his lute set?

            A luter.

          • SouthSideGeno

            OUT. OF. GAS.

          • Jovi

            what is with you tonight? did Mark take your family hostage?

        • Jovi

          All testtube did was skate himself into the corners and then crap out a puck. What is with you Pens and your obsession with ex-lovers?

      • SouthSideGeno

        FLESH WILL BE CUT…THERE WILL BEE BLUB

      Sheary for Letestu?

      • PensPointsYourMom

        sold

  • PensPointsYourMom

    Welp. That was the most fun I’ve had losing in a while. Yinz are the best, except you Brendan, you’re getting traded.

  • Murray “I just wanted to let him know that I miss him, I guess -sniff-“

    • Jovi

      context?

      • Murray on being asked what he was talking with MAF about

        • Maf on Murray -you and Matt Murray had a moment before the game what did you say to him

          MAF: “uhhhm. Hi”

          • Jovi

            Awe. I’m having feelings again.

          • SouthSideGeno

    • Finn Bonzalez

      It’s the middle of winter. No golfing in the snow, Xeno.

    • Big Poppa Vlad

      smeh, if this was the end of the season, they would have beat vegas 5 to 2…

      • SouthSideGeno

        I’d like to think u r right…but it’s only wishful thinking. The fact is right now they’d be out. They’ve looked really bad the last two weeks.

        Getting Murray’s back will help…and Schultz too…on D. But they lost the ‘gutz’ and ‘corner/wall fighters’ from the last two seasons…and their lack of 5 on 5 scoring is evidence of that.

        GM Grampy is gonna roll the dice…and some heads, soon. He has to. This group is not gelling. No 2n’dary skoaring is killing us.
