    We've been getting screwed by the refs all over the ice. When they tripped Hintz and boarded him into the boards to injure him out of the game, no call. Benn in OT shouldn't have been a call. Pavelski in game 3 getting high sticked blatantly while we were on the power play, should have had a 5 on 3. Tampa just embellishing all over the ice too, and taking runs at our guys every chance they get, dirty as hell. I'm thrilled my team made it this far, but the refs have left their mark from game 2 on.

    As someone who doesn't care who wins this and has watched most of the games while not paying massively close attention I am not seeing anything one sided in the refereeing. Both teams are hitting everything that moves all over the ice whether the puck is in the area or not without calls. If they started calling everything the whole game would be a 4 on 4 from what I've been watching :lol:

    If anything Dallas got a gift with the 4 on 4 at the end of the third after that hook in the balls last night...

    All good. Like I said I've only been half watching while doing other stuff.

    And it's over for another season. Congrats to Tampa.

    Now back to wondering WTF the Pens are going to do with 8 left shooting D :rofl:

    Still seems weird... I guess the season had to have an ending though. Didn’t see Hedman wining the Conn Smythe either.

    Can't be mad at my team for any of that run, it was incredible. Really proud of them.

    Yeah given his performance you can't really complain about it though... 3rd all time in goals scored by a dman in a playoff run is nuts

    Yeah it is, he only had 11 all season. Just figured it would have been Point.

    I agree with Hedman over Point.

    Wow so NY actually bought out the King. I completely get it from a business standpoint, but still sad and the end of an era.

    I believe we've been playoff eliminated by Lundqsvist a few times over the years, nothing but respect for him. Hopefully he finds a team that wants him and he has a few more good seasons before retiring.

    Now that the Lightning have had their chance to celebrate and digest... lets talk offseason. Any BOLD predictions? Shocking moves/trades/signings?? Lets hear'em!
    Bergevin acquires Laine from Winnipeg in exchange for Danault (slot him as 2nd line center), one or two of our on-the-cusp prospect defencemen such has Juulsen, Fleury or the older Kulak (to fill their need for a defenceman), 1st round 16th overall pick 2020, and some other asset. Laine however plays out the final year of his contract before negotiating extension.

    At this point GMJR just seems to be thrashing around, so no idea what's going to happen with the Pens.

    I do find the idea of a Matheson / Johnson third pairing absolutely horrifying though, so I am sure we'll see that this season :rofl:

    EDIT: Pens resigned Jarry to a 3 year $3.5 million per average deal

    I'm curious to see what happens with Murray in the next couple days, as they definitely can't afford to resign him.

    Given Jarry just got 3.5, leaving 2.6, I'm wondering if it possible that through arbitration that Murray is awarded more than Pittsburgh can fit and the league allows him UFA status (like an emancipation?).

    Pretty sure they can be over the cap until final rosters are due, so I doubt they'll let him walk. That said Murray may not get what he wants in arbitration given his performance hasn't exactly been earth shattering over the last 3 years. I saw something about Murray, Johnson, and a 5th to Ottawa for a 2nd and honestly if Ottawa is willing I hope Rutherford jumps on that deal as it would be a win for the Pens.

    Sullivan has to be losing his mind right now with two of his guys on the way out in Murray and Simon (Pens announced they will not qualify Simon)

    Now you don't have to worry about that third pairing, Johnson is being bought out.

    Yep just saw he's on waivers... That said I am still plenty worried about a 3rd pairing :rofl: That takes the Pens down to 7 left handed D :facepalm:

    I really do feel like I'm watching the exact same thing that happened to Carolina play out in Pittsburgh...

    Except that Carolina has practically two whole NHL-caliber defense corps while Pittsburgh can barely muster one.
