i love how there's like three penguin hate threads on the flyers board already... man they really love talking about us, haha. its kind of cute in a way.
The level of Neal-hate is epic.
He might take Sid's place as the most hated player. All he has to do is score a couple goals and hit someone a couple times and they'll label him the anti-christ.
I love how 20 posts in no one had figured out that Asham is no longer a Penguin. Then someone tells them and it was "oh we knew that...".
Then why bring it up until the first game against Asham? Philly quality... unmatched.
Best of all they name the thread Retribution, even though they won the series. It's like the fact that they won was overshadowed by the fact that there was rough stuff between the teams and cheap shots going around in one of the ugliest, most cluster-****ed series I've ever seen. Like there was any innocence on either bench. The whole thing was out of control.
^ I was just reading that thread, good stuff... good stuff.
I hope we win by a complete fluke or stupid goal, just to watch their heads explode.
Heheh. That would be righteous. Or maybe penalty shot goal (real penalty shot, not shootout). Will be interesting to see how the refs handle it. If they'll let them play for the excitement / tv factor, or if they'll clamp down early to avoid last year's crap carrying over to this year.
for all the phila bashing, let's not forget how they straight up embarrassed the pens last season. one of the most embarrassing series of all-time, truly. thank god they didn't win the cup last year.
i feel like this pens team might be a little stale/lack that fire, so it will be interesting to see how they respond to playing their hated rivals.
also want to see how maf plays. he was obviously bad last season, and some people have suggested he hasn't been great in camp. also this talk about all the pens players chirping at fleury and giving him a hard time in practices? it sounds a little weird. plus he was m.i.a. all lockout.
