Welcome Calgary fans! It's amazing that Iginla's going to don the Penguin sweater. I think a lot of us have been dreaming about Iginla on Crosby's wing since about 2006.

Iggy needs 22 more goals to break 30 again. If anyone can help him get that, it's Sid.

Thanks for the memories Iggy, the city is heartbroken

So do I get a jersey now... or wait until it comes with a Stanley Cup patch?

If we win I hope they do those Half and half jerseys like they did for Bourque. I'm a pens fan but I would def buy a half pit half cgy iggy jersey.

We are going to be invading your guys' space for a little while, I'm officially like 20% Pens fan now, could you answer a few questions?

- Who to follow on Twitter related to Pens (Players, insiders, writers, reporters, etc)
- What are the lines going to look like?
- Who currently wears the "A"s?
- What does your prospect pool look like?

Any other information you could provide for a new fan?

welcome!

1) not a fan of Twitter, but don't rely on Pittsburgh media for great hockey coverage. Dave Molinari isn't bad, but the rest from our 2 papers are downright awful.
2) Lines will be interesting. I would estimate the following:

Iginla-Sid-Dupuis
Kunitz-Geno-Neal
Morrow-Sutter-Cooke
Bennett/Glass/Adams/Vitale/TK

however, you can also slot Iginla on the 2nd line with Geno & Neal. Either way, nasty combo. PP will be very interesting to say the least.

3) A's are: Malkin (full time), Orpik & Kunitz (they switch off depending on home/away)
4) Prospect pool: pretty deep on defense since Shero likes stockpiling them at the draft, remarkably short up top.
5) If you have the CenterIce package, watch the other feed. Our TV crew is headed up by the worst tandem in the league (Paul Steigerwald & Bob Errey), but the radio side is fantastic since we have Hall of Fame announcer Mike Lange. Errey isn't bad (especially when he is on NHL Network), but just turns into a complete tool when he works with Steigerwald.
6) You will hear guys on the team that the fans have less than solid appreciation for: TK (hasn't done much since signing recent contract), Glass (utterly useless), Paul Martin (before this year). Fan favorites (aside from stars): Joe "Victory" Vitale, Brandon Sutter, Matt Cooke (yeah, we like him here).
7) Biggest rival: Flyers. Pens-Flyers is like Flames-Oilers. Even though the Flyers suck this year, it never gets old beating them.

Welcome again!

One of my Flames fan friends has suggested in her list of Care and Feeding of Iginla that to make Iggy feel more comfortable, we need play this on the jumbotron when he scores. Is this true?

Happy to have all the flames fans. I'm glad Iggys going to a better organization than the bruins. I woke up the text from the penguins twitter at 2 am and I've never been so happy. I want Iginla to win the cup and I think here is the best opportunity to do it.
As far as the prospects you're getting, I really liked Agostino, but I might have been a little bias due to the fact he grew up 10 minutes away from my town. He's said in interviews that he tries to play like Ryan Callahan. So he could really turn out to be a great player.

I don't really know that much about Hanowski.

As far as twitter goes, follow @realdanaheinze for an amazing behind the scenes look.
@penguinsinsidescoop is great, lots of news/info and play by play of the games.
DON'T FOLLOW ROSSI!!! He makes stuff up.
Josh Yohe or Shelly Anderson are decent. They really just report, not as much speculation so they're credible in that they're giving information and simpy tell it as it is.

Anyways, pleased to have you guys and feel free to ask questions. I'm sure you're going through a tough time but you should know that Iggys going to the team where he's a perfect fit

Late on this but I'd be ok with it. Win or lose, it's Iggy and his team to me will always be the Flames. As long as he doesn't kidnapp Crosby and/or Malkin to take with him I'd be ok with it.

Welcome aboard!

I honestly still can't believe it. Good God. Pens have an outstanding shot at Lord Stanley this year. Just gotta hope that luck is on your side.

I've been a fan of BMorrow and Iggy for years, would love to see them hoist the Cup. And of course, I want Sid to win a few more Cups as well.

Party on.

We have an easy team to root for guys. Ignore all the mouth breathers who hate for the reason of hating. I always giggle when I see Shark fans claiming how much they hate the Penguins.

Awesome.

Reminds me VERY MUCH of when we got Ron Francis. All the Whalers fans got behind the Pen's (in the playoffs) and wanted to see Ronnie Franchise get a Cup. And that worked out pretty well.

I'm a huge fan of the Twitter and Pens Radio Network. That being said, don't read too much into whatever Rob Rossi or Josh Yohe has to say on radio or internet. They are both negative Nancys and shouldn't be allowed near the Pens.

Oh God, just look at when one of those stupid anti Crosby/Pens threads pops up on the main board. There's one Shark fan in particular, but I can't remember his user name.

My argument with them is always something like "Really? Crosby is "shoved down your throat" in California?"

It's simply sheep being sheep.

Iginla has been one of my favorite non-Pens players for years now and I'm so jacked that he's in Pittsburgh now.

A huge welcome to all of the Flames (and Stars and Sharks) fans that are coming over to root on their former players to a Cup. I hope we all get to watch our guys raise the Cup together this summer!!!

I knew to ignore Rossi, but thought Yohe was somewhat okay?

I always liked the Flames,but it's tough to follow the team, games usually start at 4 am over here.

Happy to have you guys!

Welcome aboard Flames fans!

It's kind of weird getting support from another fan base. lol

Also if anyone can set up an avatar of dancing Iggy I'd totally rock that.
