I do not think the pens will have enough money to keep their top 5 players for the next few years. Can they stick together for at least 3-5 years?

Exactly, for the pens to be dominated the way they were and still win? They were out shot something like 54-24. It was exhausting just to stay up and watch the 3 OTs because I always have to get up early but it was worth it. I like crashing the net goals as well but it would have sucked if Detroit would have won the cup that way.
I wonder what the pens salary cap is. Reminds me of the Ottawa team a few years ago when they had an all-star team. They don't last very long though. I say maybe 2 more years.

There are a lot of free agents. Are we allowed to post links? I have an article that breaks it all down nicely. If not, I can pm it.

About the free agents? They have a long term issue. Malkin, Fleuery, and Stall are signed for next year, but need to be signed to long term deals like Crosby and Gonchar are. So they need to iron that out. July 1st is the start of free agency. Malone, Orpik, and Hossa will be pretty hot, so if they want to sign any of them, they need to get on it before July 1st, which means they need to work on the long term deals in order to know the cap room. Crosby took less in order to sign long term and stay. The other three have said they like playing together, so maybe they will follow suit, though I heard recently that Malkin wants to wait and see. Can't really fault that.
I imagine they will hold onto those three for years to come. The other three will probably move on, unfortunately. Would like to keep at least one of those three if not more.
In other words, I guess I have no clue what will happen, lol.
Regardless, their core will be awesome for a long time and they should just get better...

Great article Bum. I get the feeling Malkin wants to be the man on a team. I think he would like to switch conferences. Stall is awesome and a must keep. Whitney being locked up was a huge signing.

Crosby = diver, *****, whiner. I hate the Pens, i want Crosby to break his f'ing neck tomorrow. After that Rangers series, I had a new found hatred for Pittsburgh.
Malkin = dirty prick. He slew footed Mara (rangers defenseman) TWICE in one game. Dirty fella.
Fleury=French Canadian piece of sh!t.
However, they came through last night with 30 seconds, and ya you gotta hand it to them

Blackhawk, no ****? I live in Monroeville. I honestly don't think the Pens have a lot of 'big stars', they're just balanced well IMO. I think Crosby's good and at 20 he'll get much better by his mid 20's. But I think he's overrated, big time. Unless it's just a local thing around here, they hype him up like he'll be the next Gretzy or Lemieux but there's no way. He'll be great no doubt, but not like the media promises.

Old School Oilers were the ****.
The Islanders were a dynasty for a while back in the 70's. Now look at 'em.

Yeah, those early 80's Islander teams and the Oilers teams were something. No one will score 2 points a game for a career like Mario did his first time around.
Yeah, grew up in Blackhawk and came here for college in 87 and ended up staying....used to skate at Monroeville Mall. There are some guys at our Steeler bar from Monroeville......

Take a look at this thread -- we don't act like little kids and talk **** in here. Nobody needs that. We discuss hockey like "grown-ups" instead of trying to piss on each other regardless of what teams we like. Actually, get 1 respected person of this board to support the behavior in your post and I'll never post in this thread again.

Gretzky, Lemieux, Messier and Yzerman played in an era where it was legal to grab, hold and obstruct. Players today have it easy as far as offense goes in the NEW RULES NHL. The Great One is and always will be the GREATEST 1.92 points per game.
