The Penguins should be arrested for rape. I say we pool our money together, go to the casino, put it all on 1 number at the roulette table and if we win, buy the Penguins.

Ruutu's shootout goal was awesome. He doesn't seem to do the funny / annoying stuff after the whistle as much as he used to.

dude, you gotta stop talking out of your ass. I highly suggest you do some research instead of using your head and thinking you know something about hockey.Here's some actual facts. With the exception of last season the Maple Leafs have made the playoffs 6 consecutive years. They won a playoff series the last time they were in the playoffs.
Sorry to jack your thread guys. Hey douchebag, when is the last time they did something meaningful? Yes I realize they have made the playoffs a few times. Yes I realize they have made it to the second round a couple of times. Is this something to celebrate or party about? Come on face it. The Leafs have sucked for a long time, and will continue to suck. P.S. Malkin/Crosby pwn all. And I remember Gothic bugging me last year about saying Recchi was still effective! :club:

Really, I don't remember ever doubting Recchi's ability.

http://sports.espn.g...tory?id=2741606The actual headline isn't very interesting to me, I was wondering what you guys thought of something else:On Tuesday, Rendell said the proposal already was the best given any of Pennsylvania's seven major pro sports teams, and he threatened to take it to the NHL's board of governors if the Penguins attempted to move."Remember, when commissioner [Gary] Bettman came to Pittsburgh, he said loud and clear that if an offer on a stadium was a good offer, given the strength of the fan base here, that they wouldn't move," Rendell said.During a Nov. 28 meeting with Ravenstahl and Onorato, Bettman said, "We all agreed it's important for the Penguins to stay in Pittsburgh and that's what we all want."Why don't we have a bunch of stronger Bettman quotes about moving the franchise? I have believed (correctly, I think) since day one of the relocation talks that everyone from the Pens and the NHL talking about the possibility of a move is only truly interested in getting the city to pay more of the bill for the new arena. We're missing a ton of context here, but it sounds to me like he's just reassuring the fan base that the franchise isn't moving, which doesn't do much to help Mario's bargaining position.

I think there's a lot of posturing going on. I think Mario and the majority owner are playing "Good Owner, Bad Owner." Mario leaves a meeting and says he was "offended" but the majority owner (can't recall his name - Flunkel? Urkel? Bjorkel?) then called Governor Rendell late one night, and apparently gave some pretty sweet pillow talk to him. I just want this circus to end and for the Pens to stay. At this point, I don't give a damn who is right and who is wrong. I just want this to be over, as it makes me sick to my stomach.

I gotta say that I'm impressed that the Dallas Stars chose to recognize Recchi's 500th career goal tonight. I don't know if every franchise would do that for a visiting player, and it was nice to see the Stars fans giving him a standing "O." Oh, and the shootout win was nice to see too :)I'm thinking the Pens weren't quite the better team tonight, but Fleury was the better goaltender.

Mr. Vertigo, If you follow the path of my responses they are retorts to your previous statements which are untrue and/or insinuate much worst results. For example you said "when was the last time the Leafs made the playoffs?" which implies that it's been a long time since they made the post season. I countered by letting you know that they have made the playoffs in 6 of the last 7 seasons. In fact, they have made it to the 2nd round more than a "couple" times during that run as well. They made the 2nd round in 5 of those 6 playoffs and reached the conference finals twice (that's the one before the Stanley Cup finals). Therefore, by "sucked for a long time" you are saying that being better than half the league over that same time span "sucks". I think they at LEAST deserve an "average" rating if not better. Add up those post season wins and show me how many teams have done better in that same time span. Oh wait, you don't use research...that must interfere with your sheer blind anger writing. My apologizes.BTW Fans of the Leafs indeed celebrate every playoff win and progression each round. Whether they "should" celebrate is up to the individual's excitement and interest. I know...it's so ghey to see your sports team win and be happy. What freaks.
