Unless you're Ed Davis.  But yes your point holds.

06/03/2018 - 2:21pm You get 5 years to play 4

You get 5 years to play up to 4 years.  He wastes one of those 4 if he transfers after redshirting.

05/24/2018 - 12:00am Probably a bad year to test

Probably a bad year to test that theory as both teams touched it.

05/24/2018 - 12:00am Orpik told him to.  Same

Orpik told him to.  Same reason Engelland touched it as Fleury told him to.  Both former Pens who won it while touching it.  

05/03/2018 - 3:30pm As soon as you compared any

As soon as you compared any NHL team (even one without McDavid) to being "reasonably competitive in the AHL" you lost any credibility that you might have had left.  Every NHL team would obliterate every AHL team, and it won't be close.

How dare you bring facts into this discussion!

05/03/2018 - 12:48pm Since Jake Guentzel (I'll

Since Jake Guentzel (I'll wait for some people to google him) entered the league, he's averaged more points per game in the playoffs than any other player.  He conveniently also plays on a line with Crosby.  That alone is telling.  Crosby is still #1 hands down, as disgusting as it is to say.  No one else is capable of making someone else who is mostly unheard of become the top of that leaderboard.  

05/03/2018 - 12:40pm I also can't help the same

I also can't help the same people who think Crosby is dumb enough to do that in that moment.  He's not going to spit in someone's face during a scrum.  I hate him and the Pens with a passion, but he's not Marchand.  

05/03/2018 - 12:42am Thank Dave Brandon for that

Thank Dave Brandon for that one.

04/22/2018 - 10:52pm And littering.

And littering.

04/15/2018 - 10:18pm Pastrnak/Marchand/Bergeron

Pastrnak/Marchand/Bergeron line is straight dominating.  

04/15/2018 - 10:14pm They finally remembered that

They finally remembered that they have Braden Holtby on their roster.

04/15/2018 - 12:37pm "A full list of fixtures were

"A full list of fixtures were prematurely published by ESPN ahead of next week's scheduled release date."  

 

 

03/16/2018 - 4:00pm Thanks.  It never seems to

Thanks.  It never seems to want to work for me.  Much appreciated.

03/11/2018 - 2:15pm Georgia responds by saying

Georgia responds by saying "hold my beer."

03/11/2018 - 2:13pm I'm guessing it has something

I'm guessing it has something to do with the cretaceous period.

03/10/2018 - 3:07pm At least the game is on BTN

At least the game is on BTN and not BTN+ today.  Those of us not attending can still watch it.

03/06/2018 - 6:23pm How about when Glendening was

How about when Glendening was killing a penalty and iced the puck with a wrist shot all the way down the ice over the glass?  First, holy hell that's impressive.  Second, there is zero chance he meant to do that on purpose and no benefit to it.  Result?  Delay of game penalty.  That's just one of the many times it has been obvious that they did not intentionally do it.  Should not be an automatic penalty.  

03/06/2018 - 6:20pm And thus all of your spot on

And thus all of your spot on logic and rationale will be ignored by those in power.  And yes the intent to blow the whistle is straight garbage.

03/06/2018 - 3:31pm So is the rather new "delay

So is the rather new "delay of game" with a puck shot over the glass.  There's no way it should be equivalent to a hook that saves a goal.  The refs have discretion in nearly every other penalty call.  There should be discretion here.  When it's clearly not on purpose, it shouldn't be 2:00.

03/06/2018 - 3:28pm Thanks.  We were debating it

Thanks.  We were debating it the whole time and it seemed ridiculous to take all that time and then not even tell the fans what was reviewed.  

03/06/2018 - 2:58pm I was at the game Saturday

I was at the game Saturday for the 15 minute review and still have no idea what it was about.  Were they reviewing entry into the zone or the contact with the Badger player where he laid there as if a sniper got him?

02/26/2018 - 6:22pm In this case, he did well. 

In this case, he did well.  In many others, not so much.  DeKeyser is making 5M per year.  There are numerous gaffes of late, but props to Ken on this one.

02/26/2018 - 6:11pm Good.  Making the playoffs is

Good.  Making the playoffs is irrelevant to just go down in round 1.  Tampa will obliterate this team.  Doing whatever it takes to squeak in is partially what's responsible for the current mess they are in.

02/17/2018 - 2:08pm The surveys are irrelevant. 

The surveys are irrelevant.  I hate Bettman with a passion, but he made a very good point about a year ago on national TV when they officially announced the NHL wouldn't participate.  He basically said most owners were indifferent on their players going or not.  Then a couple players were injured at the Olympics and ended up tanking the playoff run for their NHL team. 

On top of that, the IOC refused to pay the costs involved with the injury.  Thus, the owners said "why are we doing this?"  They basically woke up the indifferent owners to this fact.  There was not enough reward from participating in the olympics.  It's highly money driven, but I also think they are correct.  The spotlight of NHL players in the olympics doesn't translate to gaining NHL fans unless you are a fan regardless.

02/15/2018 - 1:09am There's zero chance of this

There's zero chance of this all happening remotely effectively in 40 seconds.  

02/13/2018 - 4:17pm "Because this is how Spartans

"Because this is how Spartans show their will."

He basically wrote the last line first and then filled it words above it.  Definitely the correct timing to use one of your amazingly clever school slogans...  /s

02/04/2018 - 1:12pm Yes.  

Yes.  

01/31/2018 - 1:15am I've known her for 10 years. 

I've known her for 10 years.  It's definitely her.  

01/24/2018 - 7:58pm Link is broken.

Link is broken.

01/18/2018 - 12:18pm You are correct on it not

You are correct on it not limiting the amount of home games.  If I recall correctly, Harbaugh and company only get a veto on the final 3 weeks of the regular season.  If the TV networks want UM vs PSU at night this season, it's happening.

01/03/2018 - 8:29pm I'll make this easy: take

I'll make this easy: take that same schedule and same win margin etc... and replace UCF with an Independent school like Notre Dame.  If that's who they scheduled, would people be saying they deserved to be in the playoff?  Not a chance.  That's how it works when your conference is garbage.  The G5 teams really should just have their own playoff.

12/21/2017 - 5:47pm There is also some weird

There is also some weird loophole where it's only a violation if the recruit doesn't end up signing with the team.  PSU trotted Lavert Hill onto the ice during a PSU hockey game and announced him to everyone.  It only became a violation once he signed with the good guys.  Since then I've often wondered what happened of this violation.  Anyone know?

12/16/2017 - 4:17pm There is a structure right

There is a structure right next to it that is $40.00 per car for Wings games.  MGM Grand Casino is a 0.8 mile walk for free.  I do it for Wings games all the time.  And there is probably no safer place security wise than a casino parking structure in terms of surveilance.

Yes.  Was posted in another thread.

2nd year* CB.  But still awesome for Blake!

12/01/2017 - 2:03am I have never been through

I have never been through this situation myself, but my best friend did only a few years ago.  I was his first call from the hospital and immediately could tell something was wrong just from his voice.  I've never felt so low, and that was just due to his pain.  I cannot imagine how terrible he felt.  There is no easy solution.  Only time and friends can help heal it  As a small positive, they now have a 10 month old child and we will celebrate both birthdays every year.  I wish this upon no one, but there is a chance to come out on the other side just as strong.  Be there for each other and don't feel scared to ask for help when you need it.  As we grow older, it's shocking how many people deal with some form of this.  It's truly unthinkable.  I hope my words help in any capacity, if only for an instant.

10/27/2017 - 12:37am Your friend is really good at

Your friend is really good at making asinine comments that you will then spend way too much time on.

10/20/2017 - 10:35am It would be like if they put

It would be like if they put the turf in a blender and then into an hourglass or something.  Actually that still sounds way damn cooler than a vial of water.  

10/19/2017 - 6:22pm I know you meant this as a

I know you meant this as a joke, but this is basically what the Red Wings did with the ice from the Joe.  A vial of it and a framed picture of some sort was sold for........ $85.00.  

10/15/2017 - 12:10pm Or if he was scout team

Or if he was scout team player of the week twice.  Apparently the NCAA sees that the same as not being healthy for an entire season.

10/08/2017 - 7:56pm He's a lock to start, mostly

He's a lock to start, mostly because he will be a high school senior next season.  Class of 2019.

I believe you're missing the point.  Also: Jourdan*

10/03/2017 - 12:43pm Since it's "not really a road

Since it's "not really a road game" let's just play at the Big House 2 years in a row.  

09/26/2017 - 10:55pm Nothing.  This exact scenario

Nothing.  This exact scenario could happen.

09/25/2017 - 9:14pm Contractually they have to

Contractually they have to host at least 3 night games between this season and next.  Seems logical to believe we only do 1 this season and save the other 2 for next season.

09/19/2017 - 10:14am I'm expecting a night game

I'm expecting a night game for all the reasons listed above as well as the new TV contracts.  Starting this season, we have to host 3 night games over the next 2 seasons.  I highly doubt all 3 would come in one season next year.  Thus, we have either MSU or MN as night game options.  Seems pretty obvious to do it vs MSU in early October than against MN in early November.
