    Boooooooo!


    Don't get me wrong. I'm no fan of the Red Wings. But it is nothing compared to my Seething hatred of Sidney "The Crybaby" Crosby and Evgeni "The Biggest Flopper in the NHL" Malkin

    Lol, its ok... Not like Crosby was the youngest player in the history of NHL to take a team to win the Stanley Cup... or it doesn't matter that Malkin won MVP in the series. Your just like everyone else who jumps the bandwagon to hate something they don't even know about. Even if Crosby is a "crybaby" which I don't know how you get that... He still is a fantastic hockey player and that is what matters. lol...

    The hatred! I love it! Not only did we win it in the 7th game, we won it on Detroits ice Pittsburgh is a powerhouse for sports this year (minus the pirates haha... but they are improving!)

    Being that I'm a Blues fan, I am very happy that the Penguins won. I don't hate Detroit though, they have constructed one of the most professional and successful organizations in sports history

    You've gotta be kidding dude. Just because Crosby and Malkin alone equal the talent of your favorite team doesn't mean you have to be jealous

    The redwings won the cup on our ice last year... we won it on their ice this year... We just did "withstand the test of time". You're right, nowhere to go but down... but I'd rather have that than to say "but we can go up" Pens are on t he top baby! They're there for a reason. They will come back strong, just like the past 2 years.

    We have the cup, that is all that matters right now... They played well last season, played even better this season, what more can you want? Looks like the Red Wings were the ones that went down. Maybe they can step it up next year and take it back. Big maybe hahaha. Regardless, it was a very good series. Very close, both teams are excellent!

    Detroit did not have #13 in the line up. He played the last 3 games on a broken foot. He is the top contender to win the regular season MVP. You think if he was at even 80% or better yet near 100% the pens would have won?? Ya it is just one player, but then ask your self. Where would the Pens have been with out Malkin? Think they still would have won?? I think not.

    Ya Pitt won. But they took it to 7 games with a injured detroit team who was missing there number 3 and 4 deffenceman, had 4 players that were in the minor leagues up untill 2 weeks ago. If detroit was healthy or had all the parts the series would have been Detroit in 5.

    Absolutely, they deserved it...only time will tell if they (team and management) can hold them together or will they become a one hit wonder. Now n days after you win a championship it becomes tougher and tougher to keep teams together, especially with the salary cap in the NHL. So I guess w'll see how they hold up, if Detroit passes the torch and fades away and we have a rise of a new dynasty in Pitt. Or does Detroit keep on trucking like they have been for the past 10 years and another team next year comes to challenge them (hopefully Philly ) like pitt has done in the past 2.......Only time will tell

    What's your point??? A hockey team is not a 1 man army lol... Malkin, Crosby, Gonchar, Fleury, Staal, Fedotenko, Crosby etc... the whole team works well together... it obviously shows because we have the cup, and detroit does not... Put your crystal ball away dude, it is what it is... you can't assume that Malkin carried the entire team all 7 games... Yeah he won MVP becuase he did VERY well. Crosby got hurt that last game and Pittsburgh still came out with the win... so just because you loose one or two players doesn't justify anything... It's the team that counts and this year... Pittsburgh came out on top. They played their hearts out till the last game... both teams were phenomenal and I truly hope its those two again next year in the finals.

    Where would the pens have been without Malkin... lol... what is that even supposed to justify? You gonna call the team the Pittsburgh Malkins?

    Just saw you were from Michigan, makes more sense now HA!

    You should have seen my reaction post-game. It wasn't pretty, as I'm a huge Red Wings fan. But now that I've calmed down, congratulations on your team's Stanley Cup win. At least Malkin got MVP.

    p.s. Pittsburgh knocked out my two favorite teams; First the Flyers, now the Wings! Ugh!

    Yah know, I wasn't going to pull this one out, but I'm afraid I have to.

    It was obvious the Penguins are whiners, showed in game 5 when you got spanked 5-0. It was because they get upset and get worked up and start causing penalties against themselves.

    So in game 7, they had 3 penalties. A hook, holding and tripping. How bout the numerous cross checks and not to mention the biggest one that went uncalled, when in the 2nd period after Fleury covered the puck and the whistle was blown, a penguins player leveled Datsyuk. COMPLETELY AFTER PLAY! and they got away with it. The Ref was standing right there watching...

    So I guess with the addition of penalties being called right, and having some of our better skaters/shooters off the ice due to injury, maybe it could have gone another way.

    I will give it to Fleury, he came back from a schulacking* in game 5 and turned it on. But for Osgood, he just didnt have the defense like he should have. It was a different defensive squad out there, and it wasn't as tight-knit as it had been. Osgood did 80% of the work for the Wings...

    yeah...im done I guess....congrats to the Penguins none the less...its always sweeter having Stanley the 2nd time...

    but not as it will be for number 12 next year
