I think the fans will. I loved Sarge but it was time for him to move on. His half assed "checks" (pardon the pun) during the Habs series were the final nail in his Penguin career coffin....
Oh, I definitely agree. It's more about what he did for the Pens in the past ... At the price he wanted, it was time for him to go; and I can't fault him for taking that price if someone (Ottawa) was willing to pay either.
He's a great former Pen, and I'm just hoping he'll get some recognition.
We sure are playing a lot of hockey in the early parts of the season. When will we start seeing the breaks for the rest of the teams to catch up?
Edit: And Happy Bday Odds!!
Im fine with the early tight hockey, especially with how this team is playing currently. The lack of team strategy/identity will ether sink or swim this current team with early tight schedule. Also with the series of injuries we have again at the start it will allow guys that maybe normally do not have to step up really go a notch higher and be role players later in the season.
In almost every thread I have been pessimistic of this team, but its not out of spit, its out of wanting the strife they are currently going through to push them rather than define them. I am hoping this tough early schedule will push them.
