Hope everyone isn't getting annoyed with the Atlantic division teams because, like those pesky Thanksgiving leftovers, they aren't going away for at least a week. The Pens play 4 of their 5 games against division enemies from the Hot-Lantic. That includes trips to New Jersey and The World's Most Famous Arena.
Moving on to some Pens stories..
Karen Price writes one of the best Pens articles of the year...talking about how Malkin is getting used to speaking English
Few thoughts on this article:
- Karen Price has been openly loathed in the Pens Message Board Nation, and I think it is unfair. Articles like this show me that the players are comfortable with her, and she knows what questions to ask. Great job Karen!
- The article had some great quotes.....
- Sergei Gonchar may be the most important player on the Penguins. And before you flip out....think about it. He looks out for Malkin. You cannot put a price on this. Reading this article only proves that he is almost like Malkin's guardian. Think back to Craig Patrick signing Gonch. One of the reasons had to be Malkin's pending arrival. Also, how many times did Gonch cry last year. People openly booed him every time he touched the puck. Did he complain in the media? Did he whine? What would Joey Porter do if he got booed? It is time to forgive this guy for good. If you think he is horrible, ask yourself this: How many GMs would take a healthy, good-natured veteran presence in the locker room defenseman with a canon slap shot?...Yea that's right, keep your mouth shut. I swear the next game I am at and someone boos him, I am attacking them. I am not even joking about this. Look at this crap from lets go pens.com...I am sorry but you people are wrong if you think Gonch is a problem on this team.
- NHL.com surprises the world with a very good article about old lady Mellon Arena.
- Spector's Hockey says Shero is looking at Pascal Dupuis .... umm no thanks, we have enough players not scoring right now.
- Thanks to commenter Seth for this "since starting 7-3-0 the pens are 3-5-4."
Other crap around the division..
Rangers lose in OT.....Flyers win in Montreal last night.....The Isles are playing good hockey... and of course the Devils remain on top with 28 points.
