Pens fan coming in peace. As a fanbase, us Pens fans know the feeling of losing one's star player better than anyone. We've watched Lemieux's career which was so riddled with injuries, that he could barely play a full season and couldn't even tie his own skates. We watched Jagr, the best player of the decade, get traded to Washington for scraps. We've seen a season in which we were the best team in the league get pissed down the toilet due to Crosby's concussion and Malkin's torn ACL/MCL. We've also seen a particular player (Patrick Lalime) get traded to your team and flourish for quite a few years, while we had to suffer through terrible goaltending as my namesake was washed up and we had no backup. The point is, we understand how ****** it is to lose a great talent for a long period of time.
As for Matt Cooke, it really comes down to opinion, and we'll never know exactly what happened. Of course, I give my player the benefit of the doubt, but I admittedly am as biased and ignorant of his intentions as everyone else.
I've always had a dislike for your team, starting with the Barrasso trade. I wasn't that old (nor wise) then, so instead of understanding what the heck went on, I just blindly hated the Sens for taking my favourite player away from me. With the past couple playoff series, they really haven't been that competitive, we've both dominated eachother. Hopefully we meet again this year in the playoffs, and have a good one. I'd love to see Karlsson recover by May.
