    Down 3-0, in 1st no prob score 3 and it's 3-3.
    Down 4-3 in the 2nd, no prob score 4 and it's 7-4.
    Looks like the old Pens. Is Tampa the favorite for the East or the Pens?

    It will be interesting if Peak Kucherov can take Crosby and Company or not. But is the team playing at '16 or '17 level right now? When they were at their best they would have games where they were down 3-0 in the 1st and the game would be tied going into the third.

    Penguins will beat Tampa and Washington in 4 games.

    Will make Ovi cry again in the handshake line. Sobbing actually.

    Amazing how great we are.

    Some1 who cares more than I do should expose all the jokers in the threads when they were slumping who actually thought they were done for. The hockey IQ of this website was really exposed in those babies.

    Tampa AINEC. They just look unstoppable right now. Ask again in a month or so.

    We’ve got some holes to fill but weve got some pretty good players filling those holes.

    Murray, Guentzel are in the best form of their careers. Might sound weird but this could be Sid’s best season yet. There is nowhere on the ice where he isn’t killing it this season.

    Sid and malkin to old. Pens are done. Plus kessel looks to fat this year. He’s also to old. Letang has had to many injuries as well a little bit on the geriatric side. Matt Cullen is a stud tho. Tampa would run over pitty faster than Germany did to France in WWII AINEC

    Crosby has been incredible when I've watched them. Malkin on the other hand will need to step it up come playoff time if they want to contend for another cup. Yeah he's good but he hasn't been the rampaging bull he can be.

    Letang and Sid have both turned back the clock this year. I think they’re a piece away from challenging Tampa for best roster.

    The scariest part is that this probably isn’t even the best version of the pens imo. Schultz has been out the whole year pretty much, Hornqvist has been in and out of the lineup, and Malkin has been slumping by his hefty standards for most of the last two months or so. I wouldn’t be too surprised to see the pens make another under the radar trade for a player(s) who ends up scoring massive goals for them from April to June.

    Brassard seems to be a horrible fit for the team though as he’s been a black hole since joining pit last year. He went from being a solid 18-25 goal scorer during his tenures in New York and Ottawa and nowadays he can barely buy a goal.

    As a fan of the Penguins, I hate threads like this. Just opening up the rest of us fans for abuse when **** goes wrong.

    I agree with what others have stated. Crosby has been dominating games here recently. His line alone has, what seems like, 10 grade A scoring opportunities a game and they are usually from him.

    Still think they need a piece to take them over the top. Problem is I’m not entirely sure.

    Their D will be better with Schultz close to coming back from the broken leg.

    Hornqvist and ZAR coming back gets them a lineup that is pretty set. Only issue will be who sits on the D side when Schultz is back?

    If they do trade for something, it will be an upgrade at probably winger. I could see someone being shipped out for someone coming in. I just don’t know where else they have to upgrade.

    Outside of Letang and Dumoulin the D is kind of bad so this is the least of our problems. Still want Maatta out of Pens.

    I love the binary, or bipolar, up/down, on/off, everything to extremes views of HF posters. Pens will make the playoffs. Pens are good. So are many teams. Nothing is a lock. Who's surprised?

    Penguins having a strong second half of the season? Say it ain't so, shocking and totally unseen. Penguins never finish strongly. :sarcasm:
