Trivia question. Two former flame 50 goal scorers have gone to the cup finals with the pens. Who were they?

Originally started as a website with Jokinen that you could change the dance moves. Then someone started it for Iginla for his countdown to his 500th goal I believe.

Dang... Just realized the last time I saw Iggy play live was when he scored that goal.

Quick Start Guide to Pens Fandom - Some things it's important for you to be familiar with if you're going to be hopping on the bandwagon.

We're all Bandwagoners - True. There were no Pens fans before Crosby was drafted. None. In fact, some of us question whether the NHL even existed before 2005 at all. We have yet to see any compelling evidence.

Pens tanked to get Crosby/Malkin/Fleury/etc. - Obviously true. A team with Dick Tarnstrom as its leading scorer should clearly be trucking everyone else night in and night out. Imagine if they hadn't been bankrupt and could actually afford to pay a real NHL'er or two. They might have given the 80s Oilers a run for their money...except they wouldn't have bothered. Easier just to tank.

The Crosby Lottery was rigged - Also true. Flying in the face of all logic that a rigged lottery would have sent him to a large market or one of Bettman's sunbelt teams, he was awarded to the Penguins via a clandestine plot and weighted ping pong balls. Never bring up the point that the Pens were the worst team in the NHL the season before the lockout and thus had the best chance of winning the lottery anyway. Nobody cares for your fancypants "facts."

Pens almost moved to KC because they had no fans - Since it's already been validated that they had no fans, this is true. A corrupt former owner, an absolute ****hole of an arena with a terrible lease agreement, and inept local politics played absolutely no part in it whatsoever. It's also of no relevance to point out strong tv ratings even when attendance wasn't the greatest. Nobody was actually watching.

Gary Bettman loves us and makes sure we win at all costs - I mean, who wouldn't, right? I'm really not clear on whether he pays the refs out of his own pocket or if there's a petty cash fund set aside for it, though.

The Penguins are an "arrogant organization" - from the owners to the janitors, nothing but arrogance. John Tortorella says so.

Welcome aboard.

I am a Flames fan living in St. Louis. My main team will always be the Flames and secondary team will be the Blues. However as far as this season is concerned, GO PENGUINS!!!!!! Hopefully the Penguins get the cup and I would imagine as hungry as Iginla is for one, they will not let him down. If the Penguins win the cup, I will be buying a shirt and hat the first day I can to support the best player to ever put on a Flames jersey... Jarome Iginla.

Don't forget how much the refs love us. Remember how many PP's we got last night against the Jets, even though the Pens had the puck for 80% of the game?

Also, let us not forget how many games Steckel got for this:



And how many games repeat offender and resident sociopath Steve Downie received for a reverse figure four leg lock:

I always told myself that if iggy was going to play for any team other team other then Flames, i want it to be pittsburgh. im still sad that he's gone, but im excited that he about to play with the number 1 center man in the world, Its bitter sweet to say the least. Anyways im rooting for the pens all the way this year, im about to order my Penguins jersey, with #12 on the back and can finally look forward to playoff hockey. lets win iggy a cup, GO PENS GO.

Premature perhaps,

But I am wearing the current front runnr for the new playoff avatars. Thought Flame fans here would enjoy them.
