Very fitting song and GDT. I'm cool with whatever happens. We have a lock on #1 at this point.

Nothing else truly does matter from time to time.

Lucic was wearing the scratch green jersey for practice, but Julian said he hasn't made that decision yet of actually scratching him.

Lucic is one of the most overrated players in the league IMO, I like the fact that he can hit and fight but he isn't worth his contract and isn't a 1st line player the way they make him out to be

When Lucic is on.. he is a tough guy to play against. He's just struggling to find his confidence right now.

I have an idea guys.

Just for tomorrow. We don't announce it, we don't ask for pats on the back by mentioning it on any other thread other than here.

What do you think of sporting a Bruins Avies for the day tomorrow?

everyone sporting a simple and understated image of the "spoked-B" logo would be pretty cool for opposing fans that invariably view this GDT.

Or the Boston ribbon. I'd prefer that to the Bruins logo

Definitely want to set the tone on D for this one. I don't care if we lose, but if we have to, let it at least be 0-1 or 1-2. I know our transition game has benefited with Letang playing well on the back end and we've certainly seen some increased production as a result, but I'd rather see our guys tighten up back there and let Boston know, if we meet them in the postseason, no goals are going to come easy. OH, and most importantly, NO INJURIES. Lets Go Pens!

I'm good with either. I was gonna say we all take down our "all in" Avatars for a day since it's geared around the Iginla fiasco.

Edit: For anyone who's serious.



For those who just want the ribbon see Chancellor Vitale's post #27.

Yeah that's cool.

Show some support.

So which one? Boston Ribbon or Bruins logo?

I'd prefer a ribbon or something to do with the city as opposed to a sports team logo.

Maybe one of these:







I know those are Sox font but most of the logos and stuff have it.

You got it all wrong. I was talking about our playoff avatars we are taking down to put up the tribute ones.

Edit: I misread. It would be polite to support our fellow Americans in a time of need and our avatars being taken down for a day is the least we can do.

It really doesn't matter here, as long as we support them, it really doesn't matter which you choose.

I feel less like a disingenuous asshat using the ribbon instead of a Bruins logo because I really want the Bruins to lose but I like the city of Boston, soooo....

Agreed. Bylsma would love to have Lucic on his roster, albeit maybe not at his salary (he is overpaid IMO -- but still a very effective player when he's on). The Boston fans are starting to lose it WRT to Lucic / are starting to do the classic "HFB Analysis in the absence of real information" thing.

Is he having troubles at home? Does his nose hurt? No one knows anything except they're mad as hell and they're not gonna take it anymore!

Peter Finch does have a similar looking nose.

Go Boston.

Other than nobody getting hurt, I actually don't care about the Pens doing anything in this game.

Side note: It's going to suck if the Pens play Boston in the ECF and wind up as the villain that needs to end what's surely going to be an inspiring, narrative-laced run.

Nice GDT Gene and great looking avi you're using as well. Good idea to show support for Boston.
I'm hoping we wrap it up with this game and rest guys a little. I have a feeling this one is going to be like walking into a hornet's nest after they lost a tough one last game.
