Re: New Official Pens Tidbits Thread
Well, I'm definitely disappointed with the early playoff exit...but I think the Pens had a great season all things considered. Already looking forward to next season and seeing how Neal plays with Crosby and how Malkin will do with Staal.
My biggest hope is that they can Kovy. He's lazier than ever and not worth a dime at this point in his career. Shero took a cheap gamble on him, and I don't blame him for doing it, but outside of a couple SO goals, the only thing Kovy really produced was penalties and turnovers. Time for him to hit the road.
I didn't see it mentioned yet, but Bylsma has been nominated for the Jack Adams award (Coach of the year)...along with Trotz (Nashville) and Vigneault (Vancouver). I'd be happy if either Dan or Trotz won...they both did a good job with little to work with at times. No way in my mind does Vig deserve it. It's great that Vancouver had such a great year, but he has such a great compliment of players and didn't really have to deal with injuries or anything.
Now that the Pens are out, I'm rooting for the Sharks above all. I wouldn't be upset if Nashville, Vancouver, Tampa or Boston (in that order) won either. Pretty much as long as the Wings, Caps or Flyers don't win or make it to the finals. So far, the tide of the rest of the series is going my way lol.
People assume that time is a strict progression of cause and effect, but actually from a non-linear non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey...stuff.
