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?
Give your head a shake, the Pens tanked it becasue they know the Flyers would beat them just like they did in the regular season.
The Flyers are a team built for the playoffs, the Pens know this thats why they didnt want them in the first round.
There are more than 2 defence man on the Flyers ohh bright guy. Tiimonen is the Flyers shut down guy not Hatcher or Smith, glad you are know whats going on though lol.
You have not watched any of the Flyers / Habs games since you think Hatcher / Smith are the top 2 defencemen lol.
All these Laffs, Sens and Oilers fan have nothing better to do but make these idiotic comments about teams they know nothing about because their teams are on the golf courses and have been for weeks lol.

As much as you'd like me to engage you in juvenile insults I think I'll pass lol...
As for the Penguins tanking that last game, it's debatable, but if they did it had nothing to do with the Flyers but more to do with the Sens. I mean come on, the Sens were ripe for the picking and quite frankly I don't blame the Pens for wanting to play them.
As for Philly being more physical..nah, don't think so. Everybody said the Rangers were more physical too, and last time I checked it's the Rangers banged up and not the Penguins. Pittsburgh's forwards will have a heyday with Hatcher and Smith, and Philly will find Pittsburgh's d-men a far tougher prospect than Montreal's.
Oh, and yes, I am an Oilers fans, and proud of it no matter how they do. Not sure exactly what that has to do with this convo but you posted that so I figured I should confirm. Give your own head a shake little guy. Philly may win a game or two, but Pittsburgh will come out of the East.

LOL at you for saying regular season meant nothing between Flyers and Penguins.
The Penguins tanked there last game of the season so they wouldnt play the Flyers in the first round.
The Flyers are alot more physical than the Pens are. The Pens are intimidated by the Flyers.
Give your head a shake, your an Oilers fan, enough said lol.
