Not only will the Penguins not win the Stanley Cup, they won’t even make the playoffs.
The last time I was going to write this (a couple of weeks ago), the Pens were down 3-0 at home to the Tampa Frickin’ Bay Lightning, and Malkin decided to play Superman, and they won 4-3 in OT. Okay, fine. The Pens are back, blah blah blah.
Tonight against the not very good Maple Leafs, they went up 2-0 in the 1st. And promptly decided to stop playing for the rest of the game, to give up six unanswered and lose 6-2.
This is a gutless, weak, heartless team. And they aren’t very good either. They have a good shot at going 1-2 in the scoring race with Malkin and Crosby. And then watching in April.
Good thing I have the Canucks to fall back….oh, right. That Sundin signing has gone well.
