I know zip about wrestling and the only one of those guys I recognize is The Rock. That guy on the very bottom on the far left kinda looks like Joe Beninati, though.

This going to be a tough one for the Pens - the Rangers can't afford losses and the Pens have wins to burn. They need a good fight right off the bat. Engelland needs to hammer somebody and get the Pens fired up - because the Rangers are going to be regardless.

That's William A. Moody, better known as Paul Bearer. He was the longtime manager for The Undertaker. He died March 5th this year.

This was brought up in the other thread, but I just love the idea that we can't sit Glass or Adams because they kill penalties.

I wonder how any other team in the league gets by without those two all star PK'ers on their team. It must be hell.

wow, I hope that's a bad picture of The Rock and not just him getting ollllllllld.

I don't watch wrasslin no more, but caught a Thursday Night Smackdown back in 2002 or 2003 and he wasn't scheduled, but before the last match we got a

"Finally, The Rock HAS COME BACK.... to Indianapolisssssssss"

Just an awesome moment. He's great.

How can you forget the Sacramento Queens and the Toronto Maple Laughs songs

The Rock was the only reason I watched years ago

This is by far our best GDT ever. No offense to HT, Kinguin, lirit, and some of the other greats who put together GDTs - but FS just stole that ****.

I'd like Vitale and Bennett in for Glass and Adams but whatever I'm not gonna lose sleep over our fourth line of all things. You don't win or lose games based on what that line does.

You can lose games based on who is on the PK. I think Adams is O.K., but I really hope when Sid gets back that the Pens will use Sutter, Dupuis, Cooke, Jokinen, and Adams on the PK. Do you see who is missing? (The missing guy is the guy with the worst +/- on the team). Do you really want your worst +/- forward guy on the PK?

I would not be so sure about that.


1. The Pens did not just lose the last two games. They were embarrassed. I doubt we see the same lack of effort or caring, at home, against the same team that just kicked their ***** and who they may see in the first round of the playoffs.

2. At least a third to half the team is playing for their jobs. The Pens acquired 4 new players and did not lose a single roster player. None of those four will be healthy scratches. They did send a couple down like Bennett, but it means a couple of vets who are regulars are going to lose their spots. This is one of the last games for some of them to prove it should not be them. At least those fighting for their jobs should be flying out there tonight.

3. I am going to the game. Now that most of the Pens likely know from reading it here that I am attending they will not want to let me down by putting in a crappy effort.

Glass/Engelland need to drop 'em tonight. Someone needs to show some fight.

On what planet is Glass having a good season? Are you just talking fights? He hasn't really been that stellar in that department either. I don't remember too many definite wins in that category for him.

Honestly I think our top 12 forwards are

Kunitz-Crosby-Iginla
Morrow-Malkin-Neal
Bennett-Sutter-Dupuis
Cooke-Jussi-Adams/Vitale

If you don't like Bennet in the lineup in the playoffs, bump COoke up and slot TK on the 4th


But we will never see this. Sadface

Come again? Glass sucks at hockey and hasn't been very good in the fighting department either.

Fighting. He has actually be pretty good in the fighting department. He's lost two narrow ones, but he's been on of the most exciting fighters in the league this year.

I'm pulling for the Pens. I think I would be even if the Rangers were dead last.

Tanner Glass? Are you ****ing serious? His fights have been boring. The Asham fight was him just struggling to fight off the haymakers from Asham.
