At the very moment the Detroit Red Wings were holding their Stanley Cup parade Friday, the Pittsburgh Penguins were saying goodbye and heading off into a shorter-than-usal off-season.
The next time they meet, some won't be wearing Penguins uniforms, a certainty given the NHL salary cap that prevents good teams from staying together for a long time.
Full story: Penguins know roster will change before next season
Can the Penguins contend again next season?
The Pens arent even in the next round yet lol. If the Rangers win in Pittsburgh its a whole new series.
The Flyers pounded the Pens in the regular season and will do the same if they meet in the next round.

I read your comments on how good the Oilers are gonna be and you are a joker. You mentioned alot of players that are nothing more than role players. Pisani, Stortini, Glencross lmfao. Are you high or drunk ?
Either way you are smoking / drinking something with them idiotic comments lol.

Regulars season success means that your team's in the playoff.

People are right, the playoffs are a different. The regular season success and defeats really mean little now.

At no point did I say Hatcher and Smith were Philly's top 2 d-men. Re-read my post carefully. I merely said that Pittsburgh's forwards will have a field day with them, and they will. It's called matchups, and the Pens will have Crosby, Malkin and Co. on against them every chance they get, and they will exploit that slowness. Timonen is a good shut-down guy and has speed, but he can't do it all, and Pittsburgh can score from top to bottom. Even Laraque has a goal in the playoffs lol.
The Pens didnt avoid Philly silly boy, they merely preferred sad-sack Ottawa as a first round opponent, and it worked out nicely for them. Read my posts a little more carefully in the future before you make yourself look stupid.
