    Sticking around Pittsburgh? As a coach I guess?

    Yes. Player development or something of that sort. Good for him!

    Dude loves hockey. Great to see its more than just the dollars for him. If more pro players had that love of the game, they wouldn't be losing fans left and right.

    If any of you can do weekday games ? The Oct 8th Winnipeg and the Oct 10th Ducks games are absurdly cheap. Decent seats for under $35 are hard to come by (including the ridiculous fees). Best prices have been on Vivid Seats or Tickpick. Sign up for their emails before you buy and they will send you a coupon code.

    I've bought 6 games so far. Yes, I have a hockey problem.

    I’m happy to see guys walk away from the game intact.
    Hockey culture is a different culture. I’d call it a fringe sport at that.

    In essence you have a lot more passion and better interaction with fans at the pro level.
    Cullen will serve well in his new role.

    Well if i lived in Pittsburgh I'd have season tickets. I'm going to pencil myself in for a game or two when they road trip to Florida.

    Ha,, Pens are 0-4 when I'm in the arena. Probably best if I just watch from home. :)

    Gotta admire Crosby's passion to win even after 3 cups. Guentzel has become a wicked player too and I'm sure a big part of it comes from playing with Sid.

    I look forward to at least one more cup in Crosby's tenure.

    Probably would be best if we avoid all playoff games. Now I was in Pittsburgh the night the Pens won the cup in San Jose but I was watching the game from a hotel room and not the arena (My wife broke her leg up there while at a conference and I had to go get her :) )

    Lost a valuable asset to the Pens.
    As a GM he had an eye for talent. Always will remember him for his 2009 presence.

    Good luck and the Wild got a damn good GM.

    I'm not sure Guerin leaving was a good or bad thing. It's hard to say what he actually did. The Pens are pretty closed mouthed on their decision making process. If you look at him as the GM of WBS, he did pretty damn well with what he had to play with. As an AGM of the Pens, I wonder was his role was in Reaves, Gudbranson and Johnson ?

    The Pens had speed which they used for a beastly forecheck/dump & chase.

    But even puck possession and the decision making. It was weird seeing Letang playing so nice.

    Have the Pens done anything to improve this off-season? Indiana has legal sports betting now and I'm going to a sports book on Saturday. Pens are 25-1 odds to win the Cup. Vegas must think they got worse. Steelers are 14-1. I'm all over that.
