Just because it amuses me, I've got to comment on Madden again.

When Malkin was out, his narrative was that they were winning without him, so did they even need him anymore.

With Fleury out and the Pens winning with Murray, he keeps saying that Fleury's the better goaltender, so Fleury should obviously take back the starting position eventually (no later than the start of next season).

Funny how it only seems to matter that the injured player is the "better" one when it's someone Madden likes (nevermind how it could easily be debated as to who is actually better among Fleury and Murray).

Ironic might be a better choice of words.

Madden is sports entertainment... Take his prejudices with a grain of salt.

And he's laughing all the way to the bank.

6 posts in a new thread and I only now just found out... I'm ashamed of myself.

The loss sucks; but guys... We have all day tomorrow, all day Monday AND all day Tuesday to absorb all the hot takes! Fleury in net Tuesday? Where are Geno/Sid? Is Holtby now the "hot goalie" that will ruin us? Will we blow yet another 3-1 series? Stay tuned!

...in all seriousness, I would not be able to stomach blowing another 3-1 series lead, ESPECIALLY to these guys. For the love of God, please close this out Tuesday...

First hot take just rolled in, courtesy of everyone's favorite journalist:

WASHINGTON — Won't be fair.

But it never was going to be fair.

It is time, though.

It's time for Marc-Andre Fleury. He should be in net for the Penguins on Tuesday night when they try again to eliminate from the Stanley Cup playoffs the best team from the NHL's regular season.


Something about the way Rossi writes - very serious and epic tone. It's like he writes in haiku.

Should have gone with my idea, Rob.

And I don't even know what to do with this bolded sentence, apart from what Willy did.

Why is Rossi Rat going through all the trouble of citing these in MLA? Rossi wouldn't - he's a journalist and they write in the AP style, for which there are no rules for references pages or anything like that.

That's the most mind-boggling thing about all of this.

I thought I was the only one who noticed that.

Besides, Chicago Manual of Style or GTFO.
