Default Pittsburgh Penguins thread

Mach, PSG, and other fellow Penguins fans,

What is up with the Pens this year? They currently sit between 9th and 12th in the conference (they have played 1-3 games more than the other teams within those positions which is why they can't be placed exactly right now). They are notoriously slow starters and notoriously fantastic finishers of seasons under Coach Sullivan. Can we expect that this season?

Also, no, for a few reasons:

We're exhausted
Coaching is slightly suspect
Our bottom lines have traded skill and speed for slugs and plugs
No one wants to trade with us

We're probably missing this year. Hopefully that gets us rested to where we need to be.

I fear this as well but still hold out hope considering our mainstay roster of SC, EM, KL, MM, JG, etc. Why do u say that no one wants to trade with us?

a tweet that said "I hope no one trades with them. I think everyone is sick of them and doesn't want to make them better."

Until Sprong came up, our cornerstones have looked like flaming ass. That's a problem.

I can see why this would be the case

Yeah I agree. I didn't even know Sprong was called up, I check their final scores regularly but don't start paying a lot of attention until after the NFL season and then more when the NHL Playoffs start. So Sprong is looking good so far?

4-game winning streak and moving up in the standings. Hopefully this continues in line with the way they finished each of the last 2 regular seasons
