Well sending Sidney Crosby golfing in four straight games is pretty awesome, but making fun of him as a douchie kid many be even better. Have at it Bruins fans!
It’s incredible how arrogant he was at 14 years old and his dad was drafted by the Canadiens. Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, so that explains a lot of the flopping & whining!
Frustration gets the best of him eh? Guess being shut out in four games for the first time in his career must have been wicked frustrating.
Enjoy the Finals on TV because the Bruins deserved better & got it!

I know it seems like I have a vendetta against Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. Honestly, I don’t. But I was checking out some stats and I stumbled upon something that I just had to share with our readers.
There’s a popular notion among Pens fans that Fleury is—or was—an elite playoff goalie. A quick glance at his playoff stats indicate that’s not the case. Based on the...
The What's Next series is part of an ongoing look from the Pens Initiative staff taking a look at the Penguins UFAs, RFAs, and most polarizing personalities heading into the next season.

Remember all of the speculation surrounding Dan Bylsma's future with the Pittsburgh Penguins? You can put it to rest. Today the team announced that they have extended Bylsma's contract through the 2015-16 season. The Penguins also gave contract extensions to assistant coaches Tony Granato and Todd Reirden.
Finally. The discussion over whether the Penguins should release...
Bylsma would vault to #1 on my list if he becomes available.
Update: The Penguins have extended coach Dan Bylsma, so he is now eliminated from the head coaching pool.
Original Post: The Penguins were swept out of the playoffs last night, scoring just two goals against a red-hot Tuukka Rask in those four games. The Penguins were completely outmatched, despite winning the Stanley Cup...
Look, it was sink or swim. The Pens were going to either fire Dan Bylsma,or extend him. They extended him, and it makes unlimited sense.
Think back to the end of the Craig Patrick era. There was no system, coaches were in and out, and basically the Penguins were like a college kid who kept overdrafting their bank account.
In the Eastern Conference Finals in...

Really, we feel you can define the whole season by the nonsense at the trade deadline, because that's how everyone is going to define it, and that's what ultimately built the team that we got for the playoffs--the team we were "ride and die" with til the bitter end.
We have to wonder how much of the Bruins' fan/media jobbing is true--how much of the "...
While at my local pub in Boston watching the Bruins sweep the Penguins on Friday night, I told my buddy that it didn’t seem appropriate for me to get too excited. I take my sports fan-dom pretty seriously, and I don’t think I’ve really earned the right to celebrate and cheer for the Bruins as if I’ve been rooting for them all along. Earlier this season when the lockout...
