First off, I'm not the biggest Jagr fan in the world by any stretch of the imagination, but as I'm watching this game tonight I can't help but think to myself "Can these jerkoffs ever get over Jaromir Jagr leaving and stop the booing?". Thankfully it's only a chosen few morons. We have Sid, Malkin, Staal and Fleury now. How about we move on (hard for some Pittsburgh fans) and start looking towards our future instead of old news?

OK, the guy left here on a bad note even though we couldn't have paid him if we wanted to. At the same time he's the second best Penguin in team history and he had a major role in our two Stanley Cups. I'll take his shaky departure in return for two Stanley Cups and the memories.

Finally, it's getting a little old now. It's been six years, get over it. Do these people actually think Jagr gives a damn that they are booing him? I doubt he loses sleep over it as he's setting records in the NHL while making millions.

Pens lose in OT 2-1. Jagr with the first NYR goal and Straka with the OT goal. Malkin with the Penguin goal. Ouellet benched for the second night straight.

Close but no cigar SCM. We played a good game for the most part. Fleury played out of his skull. Once we get Sid back we'll be back on track.

Well hey, you called those of us who boo him "morons," so this one is speaking up. I don't like Jagr - he's a friggin lazy, whining prima donna, and I'm going to keep booing his sorry, fat ass every time he plays here.

Right and once again I never stated you couldn't boo him. You can boo him all you want. Whatever makes you happy buddy.

Anyways, we have the NYI tomorrow night at home. Let's try and get a little payback for last night. Hopefully Sid is ready to go.

Just sickening. But at least we got a point out of it.
