1. Canucks vs. 8. Kings
2. Blues vs. 7. Sharks
3. Coyotes vs. 6. Blackhawks
4. Predators vs. 5. Red Wings

1. Rangers vs. 8. Senators
2. Bruins vs. 7. Capitals
3. Panthers vs. 6. Devils
4. Penguins vs. 5. Flyers

Some juicy matchups there. Good to see Florida participating for the first time in forever and a lot of potential upsets.

I love all of the Pens hate flowing from other fan bases. Feels good, man.

gotta love the thread about playoff seeding started by a "neutral fan" trumping outrage that the Pens are the fourth seed. makes it open season to whine about (perceived) pens whining.

Here here, the "Because it's the Cup" ones are so far, so bad. "Because it all started out as a good excuse to go out on a Wednesday night"...what does that even mean?!

Isn't that a beer commercial?

I've heard the commercial, but never looked at the TV when it was on....it sounds like a beer commercial. "It's good to get together over something cold" + "hockey" = beer commercial featuring hockey. Doesn't have a Stanley Cup vibe, in my opinion.

I still think these were the most creative the NHL has done, although I believe they were used during the regular season.

Some teams and some players are getting them it seems. The Pens get a team one, but no player one at this time.



I like how they forgot the last 2 years


--In the St Louis one they use a crowd shot from the Blues~Pens games as you can see a few Penguin jerseys including a baby blue

--In the Canuck one they say "because the Cup belongs in Canada".

That is seriously clever. They should've done that.

The new ones just don't have that vibe to them. In that Penguins one it says; "Because last time was last time" - What?!

The best part of the Capitals moving up to 7th is now I can cheer for both the Caps and Rangers to lose first round.

They've officially gone off the rails. They're now citing (and agreeing with) a Larry Brooks article as some sort of "proof" that the Pens get special treatment. Think about that for a minute. Larry Brooks.

I have to stay off the main boards. It makes me really sad, and I don't mean because people don't like the Pens.

It's collective consciousness at work.

That said, GO PENS!

Even Torts thinks he's a complete idiot.

Maybe Torts is also involved in the conspiracy to help the Pens win the Cup, I mean he diagrees with Brooks.

Sour grapes because now with the salary cap they can't just sit and wait for the contracts of players like Crosby & Malkin to expire so they can throw money at them. Must hurt to have a level playing field. The NHL loves Pittsburgh!

Level playing field? The Rags have been hiding close to 10 million in 1-way contracts in the AHL this season. Without that option they couldn't have signed Brad Richards...

I find it funny when everyone else hates on us, I just laugh and look the other way because it's nothing short of jealousy.

If the Pens win, this will probably be my reaction...

Just stop posting there, people. It's hilarious to watch them come out of the woodwork and pat each other on the back for saying the same **** over and over again.

Went over to the Flyers' board and saw someone posted this still from The Avengers.

Does that look like anyone in the NHL to you? It's 100% not photoshopped.

Wow, that is creepy.

Just gonna edit this instead of double posting.

jeffmillerOCR: Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau on Ryan Getzlaf: “He’s the best captain I’ve had in the NHL.”

Ouch.

BB and Kirk Muller are also going to be on CBC as analysts. I think CBC has the Wash/Boston series, so that should be good.
