For some reason.... i think that the pens are going to
flop this year. Pittsburgh is right up there amongst my
favourite teams but judging by the recent Pens losses to two
teams within their conference in NYR and the Flyers, (and
subsequent losing records to both), I would have to think
that the penguins are just not good enough to get out of their
conference. Seems that Gretzky and Messier are able to turn
it up when they really want to this season, but Mario just
doesn't feel like it. Looks like Francis has fallen off
a cliff (again) and Jagr just slumps whenever Mario slumps..
even when they are separated. I am also surprised at how
poorly Stu Barnes has been playing along with massively
overrated Petr Nedved.
Kasperitis has been playing his normal hitting game but hius
defence is atrocious. Was Lalime just a dream?
(Wregget looks a little rusty.. but maybe he will rebound)
