Help us Help you

As we round in to September we have been throwing around some ideas in the pens.hockey email chat about ways to possibly improve. Now we are hoping to get some input from all yinz with a survey to help us out a bit.

First off we want to add two new gameday characters to our crew. It is our hope that each character will have his own personality that develops through the season (how Sultry Bob become more vulgar as the season went on, etc.) You can select two of the following, and the two with the most votes will win. The two winners will be joining Sultry Bob, Lee “hockey player” Stempniak, Jay, and Marc-Andre Fleury as it comes with great sorrow that we have to announce the death of Susan Bairl, she sucked. After opening up the discussion in the chat these seem to be the unlucky finalists:

Gameday Character

  • Steigy (27%, 24 Votes)
  • Tyler Kennedy (22%, 19 Votes)
  • Mike Johnson (22%, 19 Votes)
  • Dan Bylsma (17%, 15 Votes)
  • Sergei Plotnikov (13%, 11 Votes)

Total Voters: 56

We are also trying to get a good picture of when the blog is busiest before a game, and though we can track overall page views we can’t see when people are on.

On average I log in

  • it varies (34%, 18 Votes)
  • fuck you guys (23%, 12 Votes)
  • an hour before puck drop (15%, 8 Votes)
  • at or after puck drop (15%, 8 Votes)
  • once something happens worth talking about (8%, 4 Votes)
  • 30 minutes before puck drop (6%, 3 Votes)

One reason we wanted to know this is because we were considering doing a pre-game show for some games in hopes that it would be something fun/different to keep the boring games of December-February more interesting. It would probably be exactly what it sounds like, embedded audio of some of us talking about the game, making bets, making fun of each other, etcetera. If we were to do this:

What level of interest would you have?

  • I would listen to the first one and see (35%, 18 Votes)
  • I might listen if I remember (25%, 13 Votes)
  • fuck you guys (23%, 12 Votes)
  • I would like to be involved (13%, 7 Votes)
  • I will never listen because I don't care (4%, 2 Votes)

And another question:

Which feature should we do more of (pick 2)

  • Gifs/analysis of different parts of the game (30%, 29 Votes)
  • Tiddays (26%, 25 Votes)
  • photoshop contests (21%, 20 Votes)
  • Posts with fancy stats and all that (14%, 13 Votes)
  • The Treasure Grove (9%, 9 Votes)

Total Voters: 53

You’re actually allowed 3 selections since 99% of you used one on tiddays.

And finally:

Which blogger should quit complaining about his "real job" and be prepared to make another 400 photoshops/gifs this year

  • SSGeno (36%, 18 Votes)
  • Jason Irving (34%, 17 Votes)
  • SSGeno (30%, 15 Votes)

Thanks for participating and seriously, if anyone wants to create photoshops and gifs some extra help would be much appreciated. You can either add them to the media file (please put them in the right team folder if you remember) if you have access or email them to us at penshockeyblog@gmail.com

I look forward to another fun season!

  • Door_Matt

    Tiddays. Jagr still hasn’t signed anywhere.

    EDIT: Why are you guys adding my old neighbor Mike Johnson to the gameday characters?

  • Which feature should we do more of (pick 2)

    The Treasure Grove

    I audibly laughed that we had that in the first place

    • also I’m upset that the General and Edgar Snyder aren’t on that poll

      • j-b0t

        Ed Snyder would be perfect.

      • SouthSideGeno

        RAD is fired…Bren, you’re taking over…I’ma go have a helium beer.

    • j-b0t

      So much of my Photoshop work on lost causes. First Bairl lady, then treasure Grove… and Rad has the audacity to just request more gif and Photoshop work.

  • j-b0t

    Mike Johnston can’t have people bother to remember him well enough even when they’re taking a shit on him.

  • Midnight Rider

    Fuck yinz, this place is perfect now that Rad’s back and Brendino got the raise that killed the ads.

    P.S. Why isn’t “Jovi’s Schultz posts” a choice on the “which feature should we do more of” question?

    • j-b0t

      That…. is an excellent question.

    • PensPointsYourMom

      ….um…”Shultz post”

      • Jovi

        your mom ran off with the ‘C’ because…you know

        • SouthSideGeno

          COTD candidate right there, yup!

          lol

    • SouthSideGeno

      Who’s this RAD you speak of?

  • j-b0t

    This is probably the greatest thing to ever come out of Reddit:

    • SouthSideGeno

      This person must live in Fargo.

      • aw jeeze.

  • Jovi
    • SouthSideGeno

      Is this for realz?
      Where can I get some?
      We’re gonna need this for the pre-game pod casts : O

      • Jovi

        I feel like it would be fun for like an hour, then I would be annoyed. Can you imagine a bar full of helium voices.

  • SouthSideGeno

    FRK all dis voten shiz…LET’S RIDE!

    • Jovi

      start with the Leaf bathroom; girl can’t hold her liquor

  • Jovi

    So i’m cruising around the interweb, looking up penguins stuff, and I’m seeing a lot of our PS. Good job peeps, its spreading.

    • PensPointsYourMom

      like da herbes

      • Jovi

        yeah, not those sites

  • UlfSammySon

    I doan know how to makes a fotoshop :/

    Girl moment: so Nate Thompson is on one of the Housewives shows. I’m like, cool hockey…noooo, this is not hockey
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nate_Thompson

  • PensPointsYourMom

    Ok, I’m bored and suffering from hockey withdraw, so I’ve spent the last hour or so looking at Centers. I use the following criteria:
    1. Must kill penalties.
    2. Must take faceoffs
    3. Must be less than 3 mil per.
    4. Must not be currently signed to divisional rival.
    5. Bonus if the player is currently signed to a team in cap trouble.
    6. Bonus if current team has an abundance of centers.
    Here’s what I came up with (in order of best fit to worst).

    Faksa: 23 years old, 2.2 mil for 3 years, then he’s an RFA. Dal is in cap trouble, and has an abundance of centers. Ticks all the boxes really. But DAL just re-signed him, he’s a good value player for them, so I expect the ask to be high.

    Mark Letestu: 32 years old, 1.8 mil for one year, a rental. But, with McJesus, DrySideHole, and RNH down the middle, and Juice to round things out, EDM is pretty set at center. They also have no real motivation to make that trade, and Letestu has played well on special teams for them. But also Peter Chiarelli.

    Haula: 26 years old, 2.75 for 3 years. Vegas sucks, they have an abundance of centers, and its clear they’ll take picks in a trade. At 5’11” 188lbs, he’s undersized though, and doesn’t always play center.

    Komarov: 30 years old, 2.95 for one year, so a rental. Despite Komarov being listed as a LW on some sites, he took over 130 FO’s on the PK last year. TOR is in cap trouble and deep at center.

    Torrey Mitchell: 1.2 for 1 year, 32 years old. MTL can spare him, doesn’t bring much offense to the table, seems more like a fourth liner, but his FOs are good and he kills penalties.

    Derek Mackenzie: Ok, so he’s frking old, but he could be this year’s Cullen. At 36, with two years left at 1.375 per its a risk, but not a huge one, esp. if Cullen retires. Its hard to expect Mackenzie to take 3rd line minutes, he is also FLA’s captain, whatever that means.

    E Staal: 32 years old 3.5 mil for 2 more years. Doubtful MIN trades him, and he’s expensive, but he kills penalties and would contribute solid minutes.

    • Rad88

      When I made my post I was very close to including Eric Staal but I thought Ryan Wilson made a post about that earlier. High asking price but he really fits the mold

    • Jovi

      I’ll take Haula because I can call him Hulu.
      But Faksa would be the better choice; young and we can be set for awhile.

    • Rad88

      I’m also starting to think Cullen is coming back. He said he was “pretty sure of his decision” the first week of the offseason. It’s August 9th and he hasn’t retired yet and I don’t think he would hang the team out like that. So he is either returning, or he told the team he is retiring but doesn’t want them to announce it in my opinion

      • PensPointsYourMom

        I always have the same thought about retiring players…”where else will they make a million dollars a year?” Sure, retiring after back to back cup wins would be nice, but braces aint gonna pay for themselves.

        • Andy PepPep

          True, but not a lot of tv analysts, car dealership owners, or stay at home dads get hit with 100 mph slap shots or take crosschecks to the head. Plus that million turns into $350k pretty quickly after escrow, agents fees, taxes, etc.

      • SouthSideGeno

        Soooo, that’s a definate IDK/Maybe-Maybe Not?

        • Rad88

          haha something like that

      • Jovi

        wasn’t there talk about him wanting to go to Minn.?

        • Rad88

          yeah there has been for awhile because it’s his home but I don’t know if any of that was true or just something the media loves to go to all the time

          • PensPointsYourMom

            They talk about that every year, but Cullen said something like “I couldn’t imagine playing anywhere but here [Pittsburgh]” I think all the MIN talk is driven by MIN sports writers. MIN doesn’t really have a spot for him anyway.

          • Rad88

            it’s every player from Minnesota every offseason. They got Parise right and thats it haha

        • SouthSideGeno

          DOAN GO TO FARGO….PLEASE GAWD!

      • Ungaba

        It was August 16th of last year when he decided, so…

    • SouthSideGeno

      Solid, thorough work. You didn’t tell us who you would pick GMPPYM…I’ll show you mine if you show me yours ; )

      I try hardest for Frksa….and settle for Hulu.

      • PensPointsYourMom

        depends on the ask. I’d give a first and Pouliot for Faksa, because of the term. I wouldn’t give that for Letestu. Besides, they are ranked in order of fit.

        • SouthSideGeno

          Yuh I get that. I like Letestube too, for one year, but it would be nice to get someone younger who could stay for a lil while and grow into a regular role.

          • PensPointsYourMom

            agree, I like roster stability.

          • Rad88

            I would give a 3rd and Pouliot for testtube and you could possibly talk me into a second because it solves a problem and gets rid of another

          • PensPointsYourMom

            What I really really really want is Haula and Schmidt for Maatta straight up.
            1. Probably a defensive upgrade, and solves cap and contract problems.
            2. Solves 3rd line center.
            3. Haula is Finnish, so I’m guessing Lauiruu will be ok.
            4. Caps fans meltdown

          • Rad88

            I would take it completely

          • SouthSideGeno

            : P

          • SouthSideGeno

            FRK Lauiruu’s feels….(hahaha)

            No, no, no…Maatta is 23 and he’s had cancer and herbiez and double herbiez…and after finally playing a few healthy games and having this offseason to train he’s going to be coming back with a vengeance this season. LeBang too for that maatta. NO, I am not in favor of sending another Penguin to die Washington.

          • Midnight Rider

            Vegas says no to that, sawry. I floated the idea of Maatta for Schmidt straight up, one-for-one a few days ago; but I also think Vegas says no to that.

          • PensPointsYourMom

            I think GMGM is not interested in players with term, or players at all for that matter. But I want Schmidt, cause the craps fans are so butt hurt about it anyway.

          • SouthSideGeno

            Butt if we got him Jovi wouldn’t be able to spell another player’s name….soooo

          • lauriruu

            Todella iloinen se ei ollut pienempi FIN.

          • Midnight Rider

            And Schmidt is good (funny name too).

            I can’t believe we’re seriously discussing reacquiring Letestu. What is this world coming to?

          • PensPointsYourMom

            ahem…”Power play specialist Mark Letestu.”

            I know, but he’s better now than he used to be, good enough to play 3C I think, and cheap enough to be wrong about that.

          • Midnight Rider

            shit, SSG’s grandma would be a “powerplay specialist” on Edmonton. I’m skeptical of Letestu on a good day.

          • PensPointsYourMom

            Actually, I was toying around with RNH as the pens 3C, it would be complicated, and require the Pens to move some bigger pieces, but he’s a better fit with the pens needs than Duchene…and did I mention, Peter Chiarelli?

          • Midnight Rider

            Now we’re talkin

          • Rad88

            man can you imagine? Giving up Hall, Eberle and RNH within 2 years.

          • SouthSideGeno

            Talk about peeps who have more that they know what to do with.

          • Midnight Rider

            They should have a Cup or 5 with all that talent. OiLOLers

          • PensPointsYourMom

            McJesus and DrySideHole are gonna get them there, in 5-7 years after they fire their coach and GM…again, and get a real goalie, and two more Dmen.

          • SouthSideGeno

            Soooo, never then.

          • Midnight Rider

            But Chiarelli.

          • PensPointsYourMom

            Was he the GM in Boston when Phil and Seguin were moved? If so he has to be responsible for moving more high end talent than any active GM, maybe any GM ever.

          • Midnight Rider

            I bleeb so, but not certain.

          • Midnight Rider

            Google confirms you have an impeccable memory.

          • SouthSideGeno

            Could you please ask Google for me where I misplaced my Sandy Koufax rookie baseball card? I’d ask her but we’re not currently on speaking terms. She caught me consorting with Echo again.

          • Rad88

            if he is it’s going to be close with him and milbury. Didn’t he trade Spezza, Chara and Luongo while signing Dipietro all in a 4 month span or something

          • PensPointsYourMom
          • Midnight Rider

          • SouthSideGeno

            One lucky punch

          • Jovi

            Is that a pick of Dipeitro? He has been… not working out

          • PensPointsYourMom

            yes, and its hard to tell, giant pastel paisley makes everyone look fat.

          Let’s pump the brakes on “Holtby emulation” I’d also really like it if he started wearing big boy pants. Otherwise a great article.

          • SouthSideGeno

            I doan mind him wearing shorts as long as he wears his ‘Big Boy’ pants while playing.

            That Holtby envy thing though…kinda worrisome. Roy, Brodeur, Lundqvist, I might understand…ya know, actual winners.

          • PensPointsYourMom

            What has Lundqvist ever won? (other than a trip to the Sport Psychologist for Post-Penguin Stress Disorder – PPSD) but Roy and Brodeur, yeah.

    I’m sure this has been discussed in the past, but does anyone here play fantasy hockey? A coworker asked me to play last season, and I really didn’t know what I was doing until December, but it was pretty fun and made the watching games on CenterIce more enjoyable.

    If there isn’t already one, I’ll get a league together if enough people want to play.

    • lauriruu

      I have played for awhile now, it really helps me pay attention. What site did you use? I really prefer yahoo to ESPN, made teh mistake and played in a paid ESPN league with some friends thinking it was the same scoring as Yahoo and I was horrible

      • Andy PepPep

        The ESPN app was really easy to use last year.

    • j-b0t

      I didn’t like how fantasy hockey changed the way I watched and thought about the games, so I don’t play it anymore.

    HEY UNG

    Your Penguin ticket buddy know anybody able to do anything for you regarding the Steeler’s pre-season tix for Saturday 8/20?

    • Rad88

      BOOOOOOO

      • SouthSideGeno

        hahaha…I’ma be there, sooooo : P

        They’re playing yer boiz from Hot Lanta

        • Rad88

          such a horrible nickname for the city. It isnt even the hottest part of Georgia

          • Ungaba

            You’re right – SHITTYPLACE would be a better nickname.

          • SouthSideGeno

            : O

            Hey UNG…look up top here please…

          • Rad88

            to each their own. If I got a job offer there I’d move quicker than that time I put Jalapeno juice in your moms douche as payback for sleeping with PPYM on my night

          • Ungaba

            While the structure of this rip is terrible, the sentiment behind it is great. I will allow it.

            Also, eff Atlanta. Too many people too close together too much traffic too damn hot too far from ocean.

          • Rad88

            nah, it was a horrible rip for your horrible take

          • SouthSideGeno

            I’m pretty sure it refers to the music scene

          • Rad88

            whatever still horrible

          • Jovi

            Hot-lanta has a new meaning now.

        • lauriruu

          Lanta = manure
          In my language

          • Ungaba

            Then it’s the PERFECT nickname!

          • SouthSideGeno

            It would seem it is in UNG’s language as well

    • Ungaba

      I will inquire, but I can offer no guarantees, of course.

      • SouthSideGeno

        Well, snatch-ur-ally…TY : )

        Possible to find out today?

        • Ungaba

          Inquires have been made. Information pending.

          • SouthSideGeno

            TY ; )

          • Ungaba

            Friend advises to wait until closer to game time and get em thru the ticket exchange site because people are always dumping their pre-season tix cheap.

          • SouthSideGeno

            OK…yuh, not even sure we can make that date. I can get field boxes on Ticketmaster for really cheap. Just thought I’d check…thanks for doing that for me : )

    PPYM = MR = Ryan Wilson, pretty much.

    Moonie – do NOT READ THAT ARTICLE.

    • SouthSideGeno

      Sooo. this is Moon’s DNR request?

    • Jovi

      Didn’t read the article but now I must find Ryan Wilson

      • MoonStanley

        I don’t know who he is, but I have acquired a certain set of skills through my careers. We will find him, and we will end him.

      damn, even used “pump the brakes”

    • j-b0t

      I feel like someone already wrote this exact article. For this exact blog. About a year ago.

      • SouthSideGeno

        *someone

        • j-b0t

          Something.

          • SouthSideGeno

            : D

      • Ungaba

        *PPYM = MR = j-b0t

        Apologies.

        • SouthSideGeno

          Is there gonna be a quiz at the end?

        • Randy

          Also Doge = MY UNDERACHIEVING SON THAT WILL NEVER AMOUNT TO ANYTHING BECAUSE HE SPENDS ALL HIS MONEY ATTENDING OVERPRICED MUSIC FESTIVALS WHILE GETTING HIGH ON GOD KNOWS WHAT, LISTENING TO BANDS THAT HE NEVER KNEW ABOUT AND WILL NEVER SEE AGAIN, TAKING SELF PORTRAITS WITH HIS CELL PHONE AND POSTING THEM ON INSTAGRAM PRETENDING THAT HIS LIFE IS REALLY IMPORTANT WHEN HE SHOULD BE PULLING HIMSELF UP BY THE BOOT STRAPS AND SAVING A LITTLE MONEY FOR A DOWNPAYMENT ON A HOUSE.

      • Ungaba

        Has it been a year already? Wow. Time is flying around here.

        And when I say you cats are equal, I don’t really mean that. Maybe just equally salty.

    • MoonStanley

      Man, FUCK Bryan Wilson

      • Ungaba

        I warned you, broski.

        • MoonStanley

          I know, but then I couldn’t NOT read it! Put a red button in front of me and say ‘Don’t press that’… I’m probably gonna press it haha

      • How. Dare. You.

        Pet Sounds is one of the best albums of all time

        • lauriruu

          What does Bryan Wilson have to do with The Beach Boys?

          • SouthSideGeno

            He was their Center : /

          • j-b0t

            God damn it.

            I’m so mad I missed this whole exchange. Stupid real life.

        • MoonStanley

          Someone got it!! I love dem Beach Boys, but I didn’t want to grace this “Ryan” fellow with the courtesy of his “real” name

    • Midnight Rider

      I would like to add: go back to those comparison charts and look at how Niemi stacks up.

      • Ungaba

        Just because you’re salty doesn’t mean you’re wrong. 🙂

        • Midnight Rider

          Appreciate that, Ung. Preface to my next comment: I honestly don’t know much about Neimi; the general scoop seems to be he won a Cup playing really well, but was disappointing afterwards.

          I don’t know if Niemi is kinda average all the time or if he goes through the Fleury-like extreme peaks and valleys. There’s an argument to be made that having a goalie of extremes is preferable to having a goalie who is average all the time. Just seeing Niemi’s average stats over a large sample isn’t painting the whole picture. But his contract is $5M cheaper so there’s that.

          • PenguinPelts

            Neimi was playing behind a really good team that won him a Cup though too. It’s hindsight and whatnot, but see what Lehner got in Buffalo for one year, I would have preferred making a trade for him over Neimi.

          • Midnight Rider

            Fleury has played behind a really good team for most of his career.

          • PenguinPelts

            What’s your point? I think we can all agree that Fleury is much better than Neimi, and recent years of Neimi playing behind a really crappy Dallas team shows that it’s not just his ability. Lehner played behind a shitty Buffalo team and still stayed up there with the top goalies in the league.

          • Midnight Rider

            You missed my point. Additionally, I think the charts in the Wilson article actually show that Neimi and Fleury are roughly equivalent stats-wise (Niemi is slightly better, but not significantly). And those stats include Niemi’s years playing behind a “really crappy Dallas team.”

          • lauriruu

            So who is better: Niemi or Neimi?

          • ” I think we can all agree that Fleury is much better than Neimi”

            You’re replying to an article showing Neimi has been better lol

  • Rad88

    Should I get the Letterkenny Shamrocks hat or the Letterkenny Irish hat? I like the red because I already have a navy hat like this, but that Canadian flag is something my Canadian friend would never let me live down. http://www.letterkenny.tv/?category=Hats

    • Jovi

      well I’m not into red but since you said you already have a blue hat, then I think you have your answer

    • SouthSideGeno

      Blue or Black…red is a fuckstain on the universe

    • Ungaba

      I hate them both, honestly. Mesh backing sucks.

      • Door_Matt

        Lol, “huge down there” like a butt!

      • MoonStanley

        I once witnessed the gravestone of one ‘Harry Weiner’

        • Penguin in Houston

          Doh! That’s worse!

    • Randy

      Before I changed my name to “Randy” and only randy (no last name), my name was Ricardo Queso.

      • MoonStanley

        Hey, you have a great voice!

  • PenguinPelts

    This is a very serious question, but have any of you jabronies considered doing a Penguins podcast?

    • Rad88

      Yes, the main group was thinking about it and we floated the idea out last season and it got relatively low interest so we kinda stopped thinking about it. It’s something I personally would love to do

      • MoonStanley

        I’d love to listen to that and be a part when I am able. If you build it, they will come

      • PenguinPelts

        There are Pens fan everywhere that would listen because there isn’t really a good Pens-centred one out there. Plus, I think we have a nice mix of people- yes I’m including myself- who know how to see through some homer bullshit and could offer outside perspectives when it comes to other teams and such.

        • MoonStanley

          I usually crave a good discussion before the 8:00+ starting games. FRK NBC for their terribleness. Maybe whatever they call Root Sports now will be better with out PAUL

          Either that or WE start this off right. This blog grew from an idea, so could a podcast!

          • PenguinPelts

            I think it could be really beneficial having a rotating cast of characters too; different people from different areas hopping on with a usual host or two to shoot the shit and give their perspective, humor, opinion, all that crap.

          • MoonStanley

            There’s so many options to get more viewers, too. It could be easily streamed from Twitch or Youtube with someone playing Jay and doing telestrations or just rotating pics.

            Record them and post them in the gamedays or something afterwards!

        • Midnight Rider

          Garage League podcast is a Pens-centric one, but might be a bit too fancy pants stats for your tastes.

          • PenguinPelts

            Oh ya, I try to stay away from the fancy stats ones because for the most part the fancy stats guys are going to follow only that school of thought and nothing else.

          • MoonStanley

            Do they ever talk about tiddays?

          • Randy

            That’s the problem. If we could have someone like Geno or the mayor of Tittay Cittay describe those soft but firm, warm, delicate, juicy funbags teeming with feminine beauty in great detail, it would be a hit.

          • Midnight Rider

            Or really creepy. Yeah, I’ma go with that.

          • Randy

            What was your first clue? Snow White doing a ping pong show in front of seven dwarfs?

          • SouthSideGeno
          • SouthSideGeno

            Those are not ping pong balls…they’re hockey pucks…it makes it ok

          • Randy

            Doan care if they’re autographed Lemieux GWG pucks blessed by the pope, dwarf porn is NSFWWWw

            Edit: ya hoser.

    • Not sure if you read the post where there’s a poll about us doing a podcast.

      MY TWO CENTS which I have been hiding from @notRad88:disqus and @SouthSideGeno:disqus – I vote no.

      BECAAUSUSUEE>….

      There’s a fuck ton of podcasts out there already. No one listens to them. Pat and Leah might have 3 people listen to it, one is Rad and the other two are in the title of the podcast.

      The blog is already a shit ton of work and not everyone who comments even reads it, so I expct a podcast to fizzle out real fast.

      • PensPointsYourMom

        If I wanted to listen to other people share their opinions, I’d stop falling asleep at work.

      • Door_Matt

        Fuck yinz.

      • PenguinPelts

        Everyone here is a warm fuzzy, but you’re being a cold prickly.

        • It’s an over saturated market and I’m concerned with the quality ot the blog going down because of focus elsewhere. Sorrrry

          That being said they’ll do whatever they wanna do, I just don’t think it’s a great idea

  • MoonStanley
  • PensPointsYourMom

    Moving this up here:
    Here are Neimi’s game-by-game SV% for all games he played from Jan 1, 2016 to the end of the 15-16 regular season. Looks like peaks and valleys to me:
    .900; .793; .920; .897; .920; .800; .958; .875; .875; .727; .923; .878; .880; .625; .909;.778; .861; .909; .944; .969; .917; .933

    • Midnight Rider

      But how are his pranks/60?
      (Thanks for the stellar research, as always)

      • PensPointsYourMom

        My guess is his pranks are lacking. Here’e MAF over the same period:
        .950; .900; .944; .971; .857; .800; 1.000; .906; .875; 1.000; .783; .714; .947; .905; .967; .964; .921; .889; .828; .964; 1.000; .964; .867; .926; .926; .889; .962; .941; .889; .875; .913; .926; .917

        • For a real analysis we’d need to know the teams played against, how many might have been back-to-back, and consider the defenders who played in front of both.

          (One had the advantage of playing with a back-to-back Stanley Cup winning team)

          • PensPointsYourMom

            1. Not in 2015-16 he didn’t
            2. The Stars were 1st in the Central, 1st in the West that year.
            3. Generally Goalies don’t play back to back. (MAF played one B2B the 2nd and 3rd numbers, both against CHI, 1 OTL, 1L; Niemi played no B2B)
            4. DAL Dmen – Benn, Demers, GoLOLgoski, Oduya, Klingberg, Jokipakka
            Pens Dmen – Dumo, Letang, Cole, Maatta, Lovejoy, Daley.

          • Dallas’s defense legit scares me

          • PensPointsYourMom

            Benn Demers and Goalagasinski are good. Oduya is frking old now, he was old then. I’d take that Pens D group any day, and that’s saying something given my oft publicized views on Maatta and Daley.

          • I dunno. I think all of Dallas’s D-corp is good, but I dont know THAT much about Klingberg.

            Cole- eh
            Letang – obv. great but has huge flaws
            Maatta – no ty
            Lovejoy – better than eh
            Daley – hit or miss

          • Andy PepPep

            I know. I’m wondering when they are actually going to lock him up for all of the horrible things few he did. Dude is already 80…. What’s the point?

          • SouthSideGeno

            Agreed…let’s just publicly execute him on live tv….let him do a jok or two then…guillotine!

        • Ungaba

          …and also last week, probably.

  • Ungaba

    OK, so let’s recap:

    1) Steigy is our new Game Day add, which, now that I think about it, makes perfect sense. We can mock him and yet use his homerism to make the posts that much more fun, all without having to deal with the pain of actually hearing him speak out loud. This really is a win-win.

    2) TK is number 2. I’m not sure how I feel about this, but I guess it does have potential. If there isn’t a TK in his tweaked-out Hummer ‘shop, this blog is over.

    3) SSG is in mid-season form with the GIFs and has proved that PiH really has a great sense of humor. Or maybe she really enjoys that whole puck shooting thing, who am I to judge?

    4) PPYM will now be known as StatsMasterJ, and MR is DJ Statsy Fresh. Those guys bring it, erreytime, and make me seem so lazy by comparison I almost feel guilty.

    5) Bren is making me worry because he seems to actually thing that the Dallas D is worth a shit. Apparently he didn’t pay any attention at all last year. Perhaps he’s being cheeky, but it’s hard to tell.

    6) Peltsy outta NOWHERE wanting to start a podcast, which made Rad’s shorts suddenly too tight. Listen, fellas, I love the enthusiasm, but there are something like 56,329,407 hockey podcasts out there already, including the threesome from the Pensbloggians, Pat and Leah, as Bren pointed out (lol-ed at that, btw). Nobody wants to hear you goobers stroking your pensboners out loud, trust me.

    I love you all.

    • Andy PepPep

      You are severely understating the solid showing that “tiddays” had in the voting.

      • Ungaba

        Dammit, you’re right. Of course, I also voted for the Treasure Grove…

        • Andy PepPep

          Idk what that is. I was a late-cummer to the blog. I didn’t get the memo.

          • Ungaba

            Rad found some Bob Grove tweets, which are usually pretty spot-on, and put them into some Game Days / Recaps as ‘The Treasure Grove’ along with a stellar ‘shop from j-b0t.

            I liked them. Apparently Bren just ridiculed them.

          • Andy PepPep

            Bob Grove is the best. Bren hates facts, apparently.

          • IT WAS PARTIALLY MY IDEA Oh fuckit

          • The66thDopefish

            P.S.: I want to claim credit for the idea of starting a “podcast”, though the idea was more doing a live(?) pre-game broadcast. That’s the same thing, isn’t it?

          • Andy PepPep

            Can you pretend to be at the arena? Also, YouTube and instagram both give live broadcast options. Just a thought.

          • Rad88

            yeah we will draw the arena in the background

          • Ungaba

            Yes, sorry Dope-man – you’re right, I recall that now. Whoops.

            And my point about Pelts talking about it was more me being surprised that HE wanted to do one.

          • Rad88

            I don’t think it’s the same thing. A podcast is an hour and people download it and listen whenever. That wasn’t your intention because we (as has been pointed out countless times in the chat) said it’s been done a million times. We wanted a live broadcast to give our audience something to listen to other than AT&T Sportsnet/nbcsn pregame coverage. It wouldn’t be recorded for later use, just something To listen to when your tv is on mute while Roedick and milbury are talkin about Stupid shit

          • It was partially my idea

          • Ungaba

            Makes sense for you to ridicule your own idea, now that I think more about it…

          • Ungaba

            Oh right.

            Gee, I wonder who was responsible for the ‘inappropriate content’…

          • SouthSideGeno

            Haha, last time he was here was 2.5 months ago, but I don’t recall when the work filter thing happened. He last commented on the post about Rad’s board exams.

            I think that was after the incident.

            Tell her to move to an outer-borough and stop acting like the 1%, she isn’t going to meet any nice Kazakhstani boys in mid-town anyway.

          • SouthSideGeno

            She lives near the UN/Drumph Dower…I always kid her that she should go over and introduce herself to his two sons Uday and Qusay. Ya never know…

            Yes please and thank you

          • Andy PepPep

            This is definitely more of a smooth, sweet whisky flavor. I have a bottle of this shit that has notes of “seawater, iodine, and medicine”. Kinda tastes like poison. It will kick your dick down your throat. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a21998ebac078f19f95e4dc7f3e23fff54769df90ee3bc268f631f491879da7a.jpg

            Its growing on me, but it was the wrong Islay to start with.

            I’ll give you that. It’s not the one to ease you into it.

            Just saw this. Read Lagavulin the first time.

          • UlfSammySon

            That makes sense. I was wondering why you did an about face and called it poison. Lagavoulin is great. More special occasion for me though.

      Shultz part 3??? Please!

      • PensPointsYourMom

        The third movie is always the best in the trilogy. Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Fast and Furious, Bourne, you name it, the 3rd one is tits.

        • Andy PepPep

          (ignoring The Godfather, Rambo, Back to the Future, Shrek, Spiderman, Rocky, Superman) … Last Crusade is awesome, though.

          • PensPointsYourMom

            The joke was that the third movie is NEVER the best one, Indiana Jones may be the sole exception.

          • lauriruu

            Return of the King is easily the best of the trilogy. Toy Story 3 is the best. Runaway Midget III is definitely my favourite.

          • Door_Matt

            Do multiples of 3 count? Backdoor Bimbos 6 is by far the best in the anthology.
