Will the Penguins contend again?
Thu, June 12, 2008

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?

rePete, all teams have and need role players. If you had a team of goal scoring teams you would appear flashy but in the end win nothing. You don't need to look any further than any one of the Russian national teams for evidence. If anyone is high or drunk, it would appear to be you during your latest composition. At least I hope you were drunk or stoned as your command of the english language is brutal. Leave Norbbitt alone, at least he knows something about hockey.

Ahhhhhh. theres Pete even cutting down his own Oiler buddies(Norbit). Well Mr. Hockey know it all as proven in the Habs /Bruins series it doesn't matter what happened through the season (Habs 8-0 ) against the Bruins. Its a whole new game when the playoffs come around. This should go 7 games but Pens will win it in the end.

The Pens have a great team, but I think they're in for a challenge with Philly. The Philly boys are a tough lot. Should be a good series, though.

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.

norbit

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.

Nice original name there Loser...I wonder whom who might have copied it from!!.Maybe you get get your city to follow suit,by copying other canadian cities, and getting an NHL team.

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

The Pens will deal with the Flyers quite easily. We all know the Habs are finished. Not that it is surprising at all.

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

Ray, Crosby is hardly a soft player. He takes hits to make plays and dishes out good hits to. He goes into the corners and the front of the net. If you think Crosby is soft then you know nothing about hockey and have never seen him play a game in the NHL.

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.
Norbit, 2008-05-02 11:49:10

A pretty immature and soft team when you have Crosby as captain. I don't think they will get past Philly.
