Mr. Lombardi.......meet Lord Stanley.  City of Champions!!!

Hossa, how does it taste?!?!?!?!?!

Also, I realize Obama couldn't bail them out of this jam, but could the fans in that city show a little more class tonight?  Booing?  We didn't do that last season.

Stay classy as usual Detroit.

I was happy for the old guy who never won it....Gonchar.  After taking cheap shot from that D.C. shithead, he bounces back, battles through it and wins his first cup.

I can't believe I'm reading complaints of poor officiating and a conspiracy to get the Pens a cup to promote the NHL.  Guess we went through it twice with the Steelers in recent years.

Thr Hosa curse will now rival the Curse of the Bambino IMO. That was the most fucking tense 20 minutes of my NHL viewing life. I don't remember Mario's Panguins ever doing that to me, they always had it wrapped up in 6 or fewer. Great story. I have to confess I thought we had no shot against fucking Detroit. Shoot me. There it is. Oh well. Glad I was wrong. Drunk. Go 'Guins. Can't wait for the rubber match next year.

p.s. Fuck the announcers. Fleury was more than just fucking solid you fucking morons. Do you understand the fucking game and what it takes to get the body in the way of the puck? Fuck, fuck fuck! There. I'm better.

Thank you Mario!

Thank you Flower!

Thank you Max!

Thank you Dan and the rest of the team! You are simply the best.

To have a Super Bowl and Stanley Cup victory in the same year makes me truly proud to be a Pittsburgher! Here's to keeping the faith. Never surrender!

Unpucker???  I'm seeing a proctologist, cardiologist and gastro-intestinal specialist on Monday. 

Just friggin' sweet.  The Wings fans in the bar started yelling, "Fleury, Fleury..." after their ONE goal.  They kind of shut up after the two saves in the last six seconds.

That. Was. Awesome.

Nothing like ending the Penguins 2009 fuck you tour in Joe Louis Arena. Talbot, wow, dude has ice in his veins. You are a God in this town for a very long time. Fluery with the redemption song. Dude never let the negativity get to him, and make many, many disgusting saves tonight as per usual.

As was mentioned, great to see Gonch get a cup, he's been invaluable to this team for years and seems like a great guy. In fact, great to see all the old guys like Guerin, Satan, etc. get either their first or second and of course great to see the young guns get their first taste.

What a run. I was one of the many who counted this team out before the deadline and said they'd be possible first round spoilers after the deadline. Shows what I know. Seemingly a different hero in every game, whether it was Sid, Geno, Fedontenko, Guerin, Talbot, Tanger, Staal, Fluery, the list goes on. Total team effort, especially in the finals.


Of course a big fuck you to Maid Marian himself, that turncoat asshole. How does it feel?

Ok everyone relax. Brinker made it through last night.  What an unbelievable performance by a great group of players.  Someone earlier stated that Detroit fans were booing at the end of the game...what a bunch of sore losers.  They are like school on Saturday...no class.  I know that was an oldie of a joke.  But back to the game, I almost feel bad for Hossa, almost.  As for Franzen, I still hate that m'fer, but it was a perfectly clean hit on Sid.  Flower needs to work on his puck handling skills in the offseason.  Every time he plays the puck it is an adventure.  Talbot is clutch, give him the key to the city.  Geno deserved the MVP.  Has to scare the hell out of the rest of the NHL that we beat the champs, in their building, without our two top guns contributing...for the most part, in the last 2 games.  Anyone know where I can find the contract situations for all of the Pens? As for Bylsma, sign him up long term.  It is fuckin great to know we have 2 young talented coaches in the Burgh'.  When does the new arena open, 2009 or 2010?  I can only wish they delay the parade until next weekend as I will back home for a few days.  WAY TO GO PENS! Now can we go back to back again?

Jordan Staal signed an extension, so he's locked up for 5 more years, I think.

Scuderi is the biggie...perhaps Fedentenko.

Still feel that we need a solid multi-year FA signing on Sid's line for a little more Offense.  I think all the other lines are fine.

Wow! I just can't believe it.  It took a day to set in that the Pens actually won the cup!!!!

Winning it at Detroit was great.  I think they are one of the most arrogant teams in sports.  I thought the boo-ing was classless too... but watching Sid parade the cup around the rink...in front of them all, was very satisfying.

LOL... at watching Hossa after the end of the game.  I read a story somewhere that Lidstrom and others were whining that Sid was late to the handshake line.  Babcock was whining about injuries.

http://www.hockeybuzz.com/cap-central/team.php?team=PIT

hockeybuzz.com cap central is a little more up to date and it shows minor league players salaries as well. There are a lot of UFA's on that list but no one un-replaceable. I'd like to see Fedotenko and Guerin back. It would be nice to retain Scuderi but at the Pens price, not an over-inflated market value. As solid as he's been, I still think he can be replaced. Don't see Gill or Boucher being brought back. Goligoski has to be ready to put in a full season with the big club and maybe even Ben Lovejoy. Both Adams and Zigomanis are UFA's so Id like to see one if not both resigned. It would be nice to see one or two Baby Pens step up in training camp and take a roster spot made vacant by Sykora and Satan.

As far as the Detroit fans go, I honestly think they were booing Gary Bettman as soon as the saw him coming out of the corridor. To my surprise, there were many Wings fans cheering when Malkin picked up the Calder and for the passing of the cup.

Yeah, some were blaming the booing on Bettman, but they were cheering when Crosby was hurt (own media called them out for that) and they were booing before and after Bettman came out.

So once again..........FUCK THEM.  Hockeytown my ass, they couldn't even sell out the playoffs or finals.  Stop using the economy as an excuse.  What? You couldn't pack 20,000 in there?  Great excuse.   :rolleyes:

That was awesome, loved it when Guerin hoisted the Stanley Cup.  He was a good mofo in Dallas.


Good read by Cook in the PPG this morning on Guerin...

Ah! Sweet victory of life
Sunday, June 14, 2009
By Ron Cook, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

There was only one bit of suspense left late Friday night after Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury swatted away a desperate, last-second shot by Detroit's Nicklas Lidstrom to secure the 2-1 Game 7 win and third Stanley Cup championship in franchise history. It came after NHL commissioner Gary Bettman presented the cherished chalice to Penguins captain Sidney Crosby for the traditional skate around Detroit's Joe Louis Arena. To what teammate would Crosby give the Cup? It's one of the sport's great honors to be the second guy to hoist it, to caress it, to kiss it, to gaze lovingly at it and think, "Man, my name's going to be engraved on there forever!"

Crosby picked one of his linemates, veteran winger Bill Guerin.

Somehow, that seemed right.

"A great guy in the room, a great team player, huge for team morale," Penguins forward Matt Cooke said of Guerin.

"An important piece of the puzzle," general manager Ray Shero said.

And this, the best label of all:

"A champion," the hockey world is calling Guerin this morning for the second time in his career.

For a player, 38, approaching the finish line of a great 16-year NHL ride, that's priceless.

"It's been such a long time," Guerin said, quietly, amid the Penguins' pandemonium on The Joe ice after handing the Cup off to defenseman Sergei Gonchar, who played in 929 regular-season games and 105 playoff matches before finally getting his sweaty hands on hockey's crown jewel.

"I almost forgot what this feels like."

Awesome describes it.

Incredible works, too.

It had been 14 long years since Guerin won the Cup with the New Jersey Devils in 1995. He was young, such a foolish dreamer at the time. "You think you're going to get a million more cracks at it," he said. "But you don't. You just don't."

Guerin never stopped trying, though. His amazing odyssey took him from Jersey to Edmonton to Boston to Dallas to St. Louis to San Jose to the New York Islanders. A lesser player and weaker man would have given up and called it a wonderful career, especially after the time he spent in hockey purgatory on The Island from 2007-09.

"When the Penguins traded for me [in March], they were in 10th place and I was in 30th," Guerin said. "But we started bonding immediately and started climbing the ladder."

Who knew at the time that the Penguins wouldn't stop until they reached the very top?

I mean, really?

The trade looked like such a can't-lose deal for Shero, even if it didn't seem as if it would put the Penguins over the top. If Guerin didn't have a lot left, so what? All Shero had to give up for him was a conditional draft pick.

"He certainly was not at the top of his game," Shero recalled. "Could he rekindle the magic and enthusiasm for his game? We thought he could still skate."

Guerin's leadership alone with a young, struggling team would be worth that draft pick, right?

You have no idea.

"He's provided that experience for us," Crosby said. "For me personally, he's been a guy I can lean on, bounce things off of."

Guerin helped out on the ice as well. "He's got a great shot. He's a big body out there. He can make smart, simple plays," Crosby said. Skating on Crosby's line with winger Chris Kunitz, another trade acquisition in February, Guerin had five goals and seven assists in 17 games down the regular-season stretch. He popped in seven more goals in the playoffs, the biggest coming in overtime to beat the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 2 of the first round.

Along the way, Guerin's four young kids received more television face time than he did. They would come in from Long Island for many of the Penguins' home games and were absolutely adorable holding up their signs, "My dad rocks! No. 13" and "Let's go, Dad!" It's no wonder the NBC and Versus big wheels melted when they saw them.

The Guerin kids were on the ice amidst the postgame chaos after dad got his turn with the Cup. None was born when he won with the Devils.

For this particular father, life just doesn't get any better than hugging the kids and the Cup in the same night.

"That makes it all worthwhile," Guerin said. "It's been such a long year for our family. Living apart ...

"But this is what we all wanted."

Certainly, it's what Guerin wanted.

"Just one more crack at it before my career ended," he said. "All you can ask for is an opportunity. I'm so thankful to the Penguins for giving it to me."

Then Guerin fairly hollered, "Thank God for Max Talbot!"

It was Talbot who scored both of the Penguins' goals Friday night.

It was Fleury, who played lights out on hockey's grandest stage, holding the mighty Red Wings to one goal for the second consecutive game.

And it was Evgeni Malkin, who left Detroit with the Conn Smythe Trophy as the postseason MVP.

Happy heroes, all.

But I'm thinking none was happier than No. 13.

It's a short, quick plane ride from Long Island to Pittsburgh. But for Guerin, it was a trip of a lifetime.

Two nights later, and I'm still as jacked as jacked can be.  I think I've read every word written about it, and I've just about melted my laptop down with video.

Congratulations, Ray Shero.  You did much of the hard work, and you took most of the criticism when there was still criticism to go around.

i've had read and watched penguin news for non stop since the game ended.  It was an awesome weekend full of smiles and feel goodieness.  and plenty-o-beers.  I still havent had enough.

the parade was nice to watch on the tube this afternoon.  was quite upset that Errey didnt do his Sophie Masloff imatation this time around.  also, Guerrin really has grown on me since he has come here and wouldnt mind seeing him in a penguin sweater next year.  hope he will play for less than a mill.  but i doubt it.

i would also welcome back the prodigal son, back with open arms.  Hossa would make this team freakin untouchable.

F Bombs go out to...

Draper...shut the hell up already you whiney pussy. Sid didnt want your loser stank rubbing off onto him during the handshake.

Detroit fans....classy as usual

Franzen...for only taking 2 sticks to his ear.  should have been a boatload more.

Edzo....what a clown

NBC censor police....come on man, let Geno rain the F bombs on national TV next time FFS.  Its very cute with a russian accent.

Went down to the parade today and it was simply unbelievable.

Estimated crowd number:  375,000

Estimated crowd number during XLIII parade: 350,000

Between Friday night, being on the South Side on Saturday night and being at the parade today, my voice is officially shot.

Just finished watching the parade, channel 4's hour and a half coverage.  Just the best feeling in the world.

My favorite moments:

JackSplat's girlfriend Sally Wiggin comments on Fleury and Crosby... "There goes Fleury... and Crosby... what a pair."

Mr. and Mrs. Malkin and Crosby on stage.

The players getting out of the cars and partying with the fans.  At one point I noticed Guerin stopped, put his arm around somebody, took their camera and snapped a pic.  Class to the end.

I could go on.  So proud of my city.

I'd love to be the GM of Monreal, NYR, or Nashville.  Hope they have a good farm system- and I'm really glad Shero worked out extensions this year with our core.  Figuring out who to get to complement Sid is much better of a problem than what those other teams face!

I was just perusing the "expert picks" on CBSSports.com and noticed something odd.  They had four guys picking, of the four, one guy picked the Pens in each round until the finals.  Of the other three, one guy picked the Pens once (1st round), the rest of the time it was the opponent until they all picked the Pens in the finals.
