Pens offer to fans because of lockout

Looks like their way of saying sorry.

That's a decent deal. I can't say I expected anything so that helps. The only problem (for me at least) is that tickets are going to be even harder to come by so it really only helps a select group of fans. The NHL should make center ice free, although I suspect it's complicated with many cable/dish companies involved, and make the NHL.com shop items 50% off for first few weeks.

JordanStaal#1Fan 01-10-2013 11:39 AM

I guess the free items will be left-over Staal and Michalek jerseys, haha.

Yeah wish they'd do it for the online store too. I'd be all over that

I wish I lived a little closer :(

They'll probably pull all authentic jerseys from the shelves other than Michalek and Staal.

Decent deal through I guess.

Whatever the 'catches' are, it's classy.

Iggy Smalls 01-10-2013 12:19 PM

The contests sound exciting; I'll definitely stay tuned on Twitter for updates. It'd be cool if the store offered discounted Sutter jerseys in addition to the probable Michalek/Staal for those looking to bolster their collection.

Good stuff. Now I'm just hoping to get tickets for the opener.

What would be wrong with a free Staal jersey? For my soccer club fans still get Micoud as their custom print. He hasn`t played for us since 06.

Fee nachos for four whole games?!?

Oh, Penguins... you spoil us!

Hey now... Nachos are like $45.

And that's without the jalapenos, right?

EDIT: And I don't even want to think about the add-on cost for extra cheese . . . :(

Sneak in some cheese whiz, heat it under the hand dryer in the men's room, bam... Save like $11.

HA! True enough.

These are probably left over from when the season was supposed to start.

The use of hand dryers are now $2 per use. You gotta read the fine print...


Oh, and don't forget...You can wash your nachos down with an ice cold RC Cola!

So like, Oct? They still should be good until the playoffs...

Still saving 'bout, $6 by the time you buy the Cheese Whiz and pay the hand dryer fee.

That's like half a pizza.... Unless you buy it at the arena, then that is like a slice...

... of pepperoni.

Well, they said the 50% off counts at the PensGear store at SouthSide Works, which has an online store. I'm hoping they will let it be online too, because otherwise fans like me who aren't close to Pittsburgh are out of luck.

Absolutely nothing. I'd LOVE to get a free Staal jersey. I still love the player and I would be thrilled to add a free 300$+ jersey to my collection. I was just being overly cynical :naughty:

Haha if I ever see someone in the CONSOL bathrooms doing this, I can safely assume that it is you.

But, you're good looking enough as it is.

UnderratedBrooks44 01-10-2013 03:58 PM

Wow you guys are more pessimistic than I am. I think they'll do it legit and keep everything on the shelves like normal. Now as far as beating the ravenous puck bunnies and parents with kids to all the good stuff, that's something else entirely. I fully expect to waltz in during the first intermission of the opener to find everything picked over. Oh well, at least I can his up the South Side Works store since I don't live too far away.

This would normally be a coup for someone like me and many of you, but it's blunted somewhat by the fact that NHL merchandise is outrageously priced. This is more like 25% off in the grand scheme of things. There, there's your cynicism.

wheelz87 01-10-2013 04:10 PM

I think everyone is overlooking the BEST part of this whole ordeal.

We get to have a GOLD OUT!!! :yo:

Darth Vitale 01-10-2013 04:56 PM

First four home games only? Weak sauce. Demand 24 games. They trashed half our season, we should be able to trash concession sales for half of theirs without impact on the workers.

And Free Nachos through the playoffs.

FREEEEEEE DA NACHOS!

MonsterSurge 01-10-2013 05:05 PM

Free RC Cola!
