Historically, Sid has owned Bouwmeester. I look forward to this greatly tomorrow.

Hmm... it would appear you're calling my province a bunch of hillbilly mouth breathers.

-First of all, great projected lines. Love it.

-Michelle Malkin is really cute when she's not scrunching her face up and being way too serious (aka all the time).

I hope you are out having a well-deserved beer tonight after that GDT, Big. That is a masterpiece. The lineup is freaking hilarious. I can't believe you found stuff for every player.

Kinguin hit us with one of the best earlier in the week and now this one... wow. Just great stuff.

Can I just say that we, as Pens fans, are completely spoiled with our GDTs. Unbelievably good. Although I didn't know who the hell the Malkin girl was until I googled her. The Crosby and Lovejoy pictures just made me laugh, and the Kunitz one.

Hmm. That Shean Donovan hattrick against us was only five games ago against this team.

Anyway, don't lose to Calgary. These guys are retards.

Great work.

Lets hope for a good one.

Good luck (kinda) pens fans!

Their winger corps is miles better than ours. Not only is Iggy still pretty good, but Bourque is way better than anything we have right now at wing and it's not particularly close. None of our wingers boast anywhere near the goalscoring ability he has. Hagman and Tanguay aren't great, but they'd both certainly be top 6 material here. Legitimate top tier talent at center is what has killed them over the last, well .. pretty much forever.

It's my Birthday today so I don't think asking for a 4-goal game from Crosby is too much, do you?

Police have had to pepper spray countless CFL fans so far. It's just embarassing....

A pack? 4 or 6? A 6 pack of that would do serious damage on your ability to type, props if that was the case.

Keep our new weapon, Kyra Gracie



Johnson plays great tonight, and we have a solid performance and a 3-1 win. So has it been written.

LOL @ the Comrie injury.

"Too busy sexting"



Wrist pain would also be appropriate for his situation I'm sure.

There's a first time for everything.

Well they didn't learn their lesson over the off-season because it was this years home opener against the Montréal Alouettes where they almost lost again because of having 13 men on the field!

We've scored six goals the last three games and won all three. This streak cannot continue too much longer.

The guys on SportsNet during yesterday's game actually made an interesting observation. They were talking about size, and basically they said that despite the fact the Pens are among the top hitting teams in the NHL, they lack size up front. I believe they said 9 of 12 forwards dressed yesterday were under 6'0". The exceptions being Malkin, Rupp and Dupuis. Now, obviously some of our 5'11" guys are over 200 pounds, like Sid, Cooke, Adams, et al. Still, I found this interesting.

We're going to get Staal back, so that'll help for sure. But it seems to me that this grinding style of ours is going to start taking a toll on the forwards sooner or later. I hadn't really thought about this until it was mentioned yesterday, but we did actually lose quite a bit of size when we let Guerin, Fedotenko and Ponikarovsky go. I am not suggesting for a second that it was a mistake letting them all go, but we do lack size.

Tangradi would have helped here, as well, but of course he was tossed to the curb like he had small pox early on.
