    It had to happen! We need a place to talk hawkey.

    SO, all you Maple tree hugging, faux(and real) syrup slurpin' hockey geeks come out of the (maple) woodwork, and talk some smack for your team!

    Me first!

    Flyers +Gagne+ Forsberg + Niittimmaakkii = CUP!

    Hey man I like to watch hockey, I have a few favourite teams...I'm very conservative in that manner. I'm hoping their is an ice hockey team when I get back to uni because I'd love to play.

    I know absolutely nothing about the players, stats etc...so I'm worthless for debate but ah well.

    Some of my favourite teams are:

    Boston Bruins
    Pittsburgh Penguins
    Toronto Maple Leafs
    Los Angeles Kings
    New York Rangers

    Don't ask me why those teams because I honestly don't know lol.

    I say they should change the rules, and have 7 players on the ice...enough with the six already ;)

    +1 Pens, have a 20 game pass in the good seats at Mellon Arena :yesway:

    Currently I'm really worried about Malkin's shoulder. I also think if Fleury doesn't start playing up to his potential it's going to be a LONG season as Thibault just sucks. I'm hoping Staal makes the starting lineup, as he's looked really impressive in the two televised preseason games.

    What was that Aerosmith song... oh yeah Dream On

    Hell, the Pens whole team ARE kids :lol:. Ok, ok so they do have Recchi, LeClair, and Gonchar...

    :lol: Yeah Recchi may be old but he's good enough that he contributed to a cup win last year ;) And of course Gonchar still kicks ass. LeClair is solid, just not impressive, then again that's been LeClair for his whole career.

    3, Staal looks REALLY good as well. Like I said, I'm hoping they put him in the starting lineup as he's earned it.

    I still can't believe Malkin got seriously injured in his fucking debut preseason game....
