GAMENIGHT: WIN

We have been around the gambling business for a while.
And one thing we know better than: taking every game on the slate.

But hey sometimes its fun. And we're not betting big.

Tonight we went 4-2, bringing our record to 13-5.

We lost a few in heartbreaking fashion:

Took Buffalo to win:

The Thrashers are now responsible for two of our losses.


First road win, a-holes.

Took Ottawa to win.


Ouch. Former Senator Joe Corvo.

:: ummm what the hell is Tampa Bay doing. [YAHOO]

They trade the centerpiece of the Dan Boyle deal to the Flyers for nothing at all and Steve Downie.

What a joke.

Go Pens

The Lightning continue to show why they are the laughing-stock of the NHL....

...Fucking ridiculous.

Shero should jump in on this ridiculousness. We could probably get Marty St. Louis for Daryl Sydor and a box of condoms.

TheFandangler said...

Marty St. Louis...

...boner city.

Korn said...

I'm convinced Gary Bettman has allowed owners like Boots in Nashville and the Douchebag brothers in Tampa so that they destroy the franchises and make them easier to move or contract.

TheFandangler said...

Tampa has a huge fan base though.

...They just have the major bucks. Bettman is more worried about financially sound owners than smart ones.

You have to figure Tampa is clearing up cap space for something.
They couldn't have made that trade based on the players' talents, right?

Right?

Rage said...

@pensexperience- Right. They did dump some cap space on the deal. Even more if they "loan" Downie to to the Liechtenstein Elite Liga or whatev. Sabu in net for tonight. Go Sabu....Go Pens

tanya said...

Go Liechtenstein Elite Liga

and go Finnish national team, maybe someday you guys will earn to pass... or shoot... or do anything else than give the puck to opponent player..

kamechiha said...

Seen Sundin...

learn*

maybe someday i'll learn to write:/

Aron said...

i have to say, that's pretty awful...who's making the deals for them?

brett said...

I took most of your advice and went 3/4 last night, thanks, Pensblog! you just gotta let me know when you're going to go cold.

Satan's epic jobbing of the Islanders:
"They decided they're going to go with young guys and rebuild," Satan said. "I'd rather be on a team that has a chance to win."

Hilarious.

Allison said...

I'm gonna be at the game tonight... can't wait to see the fans' reaction to Satan... they're prob too apathetic to boo

Allison said...

or, more likely, there won't be enough people there to make any significant noise.

Rage said...

I think you nailed it perfectly allison. Apathetic no-shows.

Allison said...

yupp, but you know what? I'm lovin' that they're apathetic no-shows... cause I get to get 10 dollar tickets with my student id, and then move down to the good seats. And Islander fans are not nearly as difficult to deal with as say, Rangers fans. (since they don't really care) :)

wilsmith said...

Things would have had to have gone terribly wrong on June 30th if the Islanders fans were to boo lowly Miro Satan for not resigning.


buy him out already. jesus

wilsmith said...

Also I'm kind of disappointed Sabu is starting tonight.

The fantasy team needed a big night night from Fleury.

...and Mark Streit.

Rage said...

I dislike the new Lightning ownership DEEPLY, but I find it kinda hard to believe that ANY GM, even a notoriously bad one(theirs may be bad, but not notoriously so though this deal could put him over the edge) would make a deal like that for shits n giggles. Those bastards are up to something...and I don't like it.

Allison said...

Decent showing of pens fans at the coliseum tonight... Mostly crosbys and malkins

kstewy16 said...

Tampa id definitely clearing cap space, but for what...
I could see them make a big move, and highly overpay, just to get another big name player to try and bring fans in.

Nulpher said...

Lets see if we can annoy the Tampa Bay fans by infiltrating and then suggesting that they're clearing cap space for Marian Gaborik.
