The two happiest days for Pens fans:

Deal Is Done, Let Us Rejoice!!!

The Pens get their new arena and the Evolution will grow and prosper in Pittsburgh PA!!!

On behalf of all Pens fans everywhere...Thank You Mario. You continue to prove that you are one of the greatest things to ever happen to this city. Thank you.

See for yourself at www.kdka.com

and

Your 2005 Lottery Story

Where you were, how nervous you were, how crazy you went. Just explain your experience.

I had to drop a deuce so from the toilet I watched the 30th and 29th pick. I thought to myself phew not the 30th, and came up with the crazy idea that the toilet was lucky. So I can say I watched the entire lottery from the toilet seat saying no no no no no no no no before each pick. When we got into the top ten I was very happy and thought maybe this is possible of happening. Pick after pick I was going crazy. When Bettman would turn the envelope around a few times I thought I saw the Pens logo. The final two was crazy. When our name was announced all havoc broke lose. I went nuts, called my college roomate and rubbed it in big time...(hes a Blue Jacket fan)

Overall great day made even better.

And just for fun, from 2007, this thread has Jagr, it has Madden, it has unsubstiated BS, what more could one want?

Mark Madden: Jagr wants to end his career as a PENGUIN

At Saturday's game Mark Madden had a conversation with Jarmoir Jagr. Jagr reportedly said "I'm going to play at least one more year after this season, maybe i'll finish my career up in Pittsburgh. I love it here, I still own my house here, it only seems fitting" When asked about being booed every time he touched the puck Jagr said with a smile, "I know they don't mean it"

I wonder if Madden is telling the truth.

Really? It doesn't surprise me at all. This board is very short sighted at times.

Interesting views in this thread.

but td_ice nailed it:
Something I've learned... always trust td_ice and if it's prospect related - go right to Burgs. Those two will never fail ya.

For some fun look at how most went into mourning when the Pens lost the 2004 lottery, and to make it worse the Caps moved way up to win it. One of my favorites:

Jussi:

You do realize that they'll probably land Crosby as well.
Though some got it right:

Chancellor Vitale:

To all those who were more interested in finishing 30th than finishing with wins, I rest my case. The odds are not great, no matter how you analyze it. Now for the kicker: because conventional wisdom is almost always wrong, it could very easily be the case that Malkin turns out to be a better player than Ovechkin in a year's time.
or this bright, and yet so modest, guy:

Quote:
Jaded-Fan:

Am I the only one not so upset? . . .This is exactly why I was sweating out finishing last, imagine being Chicago right now who just missed and now has the booby prize of picking for a bunch of so-so players compared to the top two?

Ovechkin is one to get excited about, but any other year Malkin would be very close . . . and is a year younger, his upside may be greater than Ovechkin from what I read, Ovechkin you know what you are getting, Malkin's upside I have read described as 'scary'. Lose the season and we have a coin flip for Crosby. Sure, I would have loved to win ovechkin but I am not to the jumping off bridges stage . . . things are good, and our core is much better then the Cap's core I think . . .be happy, you get Malkin, who very well may turn out to be the same or better than Ovechkin.

I remember one thread where this guy was baffled that nobody was with him that John LeClair could score 50 goals for us.

Another one that season predicted the Pens would score 380 goals.

Found it. Bam: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...on+predictions

Apparently, Lasse Pirjeta was going to score 10 goals as the team's 14th forward.

The poem for Tarnstrom is beautiful. Man, our board didn't have a great sense of humor back then, lol

Heheh. Yep we were on the right track with that one. It might've taken Geno more than a single season, but I doubt very much anyone would trade Malkin for Ovechkin now, and probably more than a few Caps fans that would do it.

Can someone find the thread with the kid thats a B's fan posting vids on youtube from his dorm room with Taylor swift posters in the background? I think it had something to do with Cooke's hit on Savard.

Holy **** I totally forgot about that... you get to about post 20 or 25 and each successive post makes you laugh harder.

I am not sure if this thread is suppose to only be Pens related, but this is such an epic thread it must be re-visited. I just wish the pics accompanied this tale.

Read and you will not regret..Courtesy of The Lounge.

Today, I made my last stand in the most difficult battle of my life
