Optimistic/Get Fired Up Thread- 2 Months Remaining In The Offseason. 2 Months.

Figured w/ all the doom/gloom, we should have a thread with some videos/gifs/etc. of the Pens as we get ready for the new season. I know it's not October yet, but why not?

I heard Blur on the radio today and couldn't help myself:

Having 2 of the best players on earth, a 1st team all NHL winger, and a young, elite Dman get's old after a few seasons. There are no shiny new rookies or expensive new FA signings to look forward to.

Meh.

Take thy negativity somewhere else as it will be deleted. This thread is for Geno gifs, Crosby hatin' gifs, pump up videos, or Danny B tellin' it like it is videos.

Sid and Geno will have the best seasons of their careers. We'll be anointed favorites throughout the year.

1. ColePens on full mod power trip ALL season.

2. Geno truly fully heathy, 18 months, not 6 months, removed from major knee surgery, going into a season with Lazy after a summer playing workout warrior with Kadarov.

3. Sid . . . nuff said

4. Tanger's increased speed from that haircut.

5. Flower will be back.

So many things to be positive about, but here it is in a nutshell: We got Sid. We got Geno. And, nobody else does.

This thread needs more Bee Gees...

Oh, girl Ive known you very well
Ive seen you growing everyday
I never really looked before
But now you take my breath away.

Suddenly you're in my life
Part of everything I do
You got me working day and night
Just trying to keep a hold on you.

Here in your arms I found my paradise
My only chance for happiness
And if I lose you now I think I would die.

Oh say you'll always be my baby
We can make it shine, we can take forever
Just a minute at a time.

More than a woman, more than a woman to me
More than a woman, more than a woman to me

If Geno and Sid both are healthy all season, who do you think will score more goals and points?

I am going with Geno, he and Neal are just dominant. Dont know who the other linemate will be since I assume Kunitz will be paired with Crosby.

Oh wait that's right, we traded him to the Blue Jackets.

Also - This season we have Red Panda by our side!

I'm very pumped for this upcoming season - if you ask me, it's a pivotal time for our team (coming off 3 consecutive first/second round post-season exits) and the pressure is certainly on. Sid and Geno will take charge and lead by example.

Im looking forward to getting a good close look at Sutter. I think we are really going to like him. Im also looking forward to Glass chipping the puck into the corner and steam rolling some defenceman. And a small part of me wants to see Tommy V get his first start as a Pen.

I nominate this to be the theme song for the season:

A couple years ago Pens had a sub par PK, following year it was tops in NHL. Following year Pens had a straight up bad PP, following season it was top 5. This past season we ended up with a brutal defense. I assume DB will work hard to fix this problem. Can't go anywhere but up, right?

Despres has an affinity for doughnuts, as we learned last fall.



His habit is potentially career-threatening. On the positive side don't they look delicious?

I'm ready for fall and chilly weather (right ****ing now), so that I can drink hot chocolate and eat doughnuts to stay warm.

Still have the best player in hockey.
Have the best 2 players in hockey.
Have the best core in the NHL.

We have a lot to be thankful for on this team. No matter what, we're contenders. And if things start going down hill, you know Shero will right the ship.
