    Really? Hmm, maybe I'm thinking of the wrong player then. I know they said that someone on the team had a helping hand on every goal that the Pens had during the series, and I could've sworn it was Letang.

    My sympathies for the Sharks defeat, I was rooting for them as well, no need to get malicious.

    Next season, the man, the myth, the legend will return and with it, disappears the Stanley Cup hopes of 29 other teams. Be freaked out. Be veeery freaked out. :cool:

    Yeah, well, we've got Tuuka Rask so be incredibly underwhelmed by the #3 highest paid goaltender

    Edit: on the topic of goalie salaries, crazy to think that the goaltender making $620K just won the Stanley cup over the one making $5.75Mil

    The defense insulated Murray to an insane extent in the playoffs. In the Final the Sharks only broke 24 shots in 2 of the six games and in three of the games had 22 shots or less. The Sharks highest shot total was 26 :lol:

    I think Murray is a solid goaltender who will improve with age and be an impressive starter. I am also REALLY afraid they're going to trade Fleury, go back to giving up 30+ shots a game on average, and Murray is going to collapse. I don't think the Pens defense is getting the credit it deserves for that Cup win.

    I can't remember hearing about a single game where they got blown out on the scoreboard and a lot of tight games (many more than I would have expected from them).

    Pittsburgh Penguins

    I KNEW IT. Malkin played the entire postseason with an elbow injury and may need surgery. Apparently Nick Bonino also had an infection in his elbow that required him to be quarantined during the finals. Was there a rare elbow-dwelling bacteria passed around Pittsburgh?

    I could tell Geno was not 100%, he rarely is at the end of the season. But Nick Bonino did a pretty damn good job of playing while on life support. :lol: I wonder if the infection had anything to do with his constant shot blocking...like he took a puck to the arm and fractured something early on but played right through it.

    Don't worry, it's just Price answering the question, "Will you be recovered from your injury and ready to play next season?"

    Usually at the start of the season. Fortunately for us, Evgeni Malkin at 50% is still better than much of the league at 100%.

    I liked Rutherfords comment to some reporter that asked about trading Malkin... his response was sure if we get a star center of equal caliber in return, know of any? :lol:

    The comments and rumblings about trading Crosby or Malkin are just ridiculous. Unless they asked to leave, those aren't players you trade away. Those are the type of players you pray that one of your draft picks even comes close to one day. Hell, even if Tampa had offerred us Stamkos for Malkin straight up at some point, I wouldn't want to take it. Geno is a proven gamebreaker and I look forward to seeing his number hanging from the rafters in Pittsburgh in 10+ years.

    Yeah honestly the whole thing is hilarious since the team has expressed no interest in moving anyone. Including Fleury. Even funnier was the wishful thinking by the reporter in Ottawa saying they could get Fleury for basically nothing. Yeah the Pens are going to trade a franchise goaltender that is under contract for 2 more years for no return :facepalm:
