It would probably only take you a couple of days before you had found another team to project your conspiracy theories on.

Sorry I thought Martin got more. and he did not sucker punch him. He swung his arm around and Grabed him from behind and Talbot Turtled....

Gillies could have got a lifetime ban and I wouldnt have complained....


Still, The Isles got the worst of the Dicipline...

Bettman isnt an idiot. He knows the league is 10000000 times better off with the Rangers being an elite team and owning the spotlight than a team from the middle of nowhere with 400-pound 25-year-old girls making up the majority of their season ticket base.

Torts and the Rangers should just keep their mouths shut and beat them on the ice. They've done it before.

Jaro Halak did it by himself. I'm sure Henrik or Bryzgalov or Thomas can do it as well.
Actually it is , much more so in the playoffs. Regular season not as big. I have been seeing it since the late 80's. And actually Betman hates the Rangers and hates Dolan. He knows he does not need to "help out the Rangers" like other franchises as the rangers will never have attendance or money issues like ummm other teams. Why do you think he rigged the ping pong ball draft for Crosby because Pens where having serious money problems and trying to open a new arena.

The Isles were pretty much getting pushed around and thrown around like rag dolls and no one was doing anything. So in a players only meeting they decided that they were not going to be F***ed with anymore....


Also the DP knockdown had little to do with Fightnight. It was a one on one fight and DP got poped. Johnson even taped him on the chest in good sportsmanship. But that Little Rat Fleury and all his teamates were laughing and taking the Isles as a joke.



So then the next time the Pens and the Isles met the Pens cought themselves a Brooklyn Beatdown. As much as I loved the Fighting that Night, the Best thing was that we Droped 9 goals on them and Chased out 2 of thier goalies...


The Isles were fined 100K after Mario wrote a letter to Bettman saying he was going to sell the Pens and leave the NHL because he did not want to be a part of a game played like this.

Gillies got suspended 14 games(which he deserved)
Martin 10 games(thought that was steep)
\ and for the Pens Godard got 10 games for leaving the Bench.And the Interesting thing about that is when a player leaves the Bench the head Coach is also supposed to be suspended or Fined and Bylsma recieved Nothing.


The Pens either have great Luck when it comes to be Diciplined or the League(Bettman) really does side with them.
That game made me stand up and applaud emotionally. But Buttman is clearly siding with Pittsburgh... You notice no other team getting away with half the junk they get away with

HAHAH. Conspiracy theories! How great!

Even a minute few of your own fans can admit that the NHL has given your squad preferential treatment. Every other fan around the league of other teams already knows it.

"Helping out"... we don't need that. Dolan has enough money and we have so many followers and fans. It's true. Now Bettman is turning this into a circus.

Bettman has had a romantic notion about crosby & ovechkin ala Bird & Magic, for years now.

I'm surprised he hasn't manipulated Ovie into the western conference so those 2 could meet in the SC finals.

Which preferential treatment are we talking about. Cooke's 17 game suspension? Goddards 10 games?

I would have thought that with Uncle Gary on our side Steckel and Hedman would have gotten punished for touching Sid and injuring him, but it didn't happen (and rightly so). Could it be that the preferential treatment is all in your mind?

Difference is Ovechkin is a hell of a lot tougher, and although the refs are kinda murky about OV, He gets away with a lot too. But not nearly as much as the darling team

Towes and Kane dont get the same respect. Nor do the Sedines. And many others in the West

Cindy's response to being accused of beig a whiner:

Deflect attention from himself. Then whine about the other team's captain, who never publicly said anything about you.

I am proud of two things:

1. The way many different fans (especially those in the North East and Atlantic divisions) have come together to share their thoughts and feelings amicably...friggin' awesome.

2. Jonathan Tortorella....I got 20 bucks with his name on it.

What I don't understand is why Crosby is trying to be a teenage drama queen and drag Callahan into this whole mess. But like someone else said, Crosby speaks and it makes front page news.

I imagine Torts is with Lavi and Claude Julien at the bar drinking some beers and discussing this whole thing having laughs and whatnot. But honestly I'd love to get all 30 GMs and head coaches in one sit down and hear whats on their minds about the NHL and the Penguins. Its ridiculous at this point. So many hypocrisies left and right. For the Penguin fans in denial saying embrace the hate, or how everyone loves to hate us, Id say 98% of HFBoards, including mods, actual NHL players, and head coaches actually agree with the consensus that the Pittsburgh Penguins get, and for the better part of a decade and a half, have gotten preferential treatment from NHL higher-ups. The Penguins have single-handedly done the impossible and united the fan bases of 3 franchises that on any other given day hate each other more than monday mornings, and are even heavily rooting for said teams to take down the Pittsburgh Crybabies.

to be fair, if it were a conspiracy, it would have to be covered up to an extent.
