What a weird year. By the time this page loads, it will be 2014.
Malkin won MVP with a spectular season.
Root Sports still sucked.
The Civic Arena died.
Kris Letang showed limited composure.
Crosby finally came back, but wasn't himself.
Pens/Flyers reached new levels of hate.
Pens collapsed in the playoffs in crushing fashion.
Jordan Staal was traded at the draft. In Pittsburgh.
Zach Parise sucks.
Pens signed Tomas Vokoun. The NHL and NHLPA both suck.
Whispers of a season still linger. Let's hope. We miss this.
