    It is far too quiet on this board. o.o

    Did anyone see Mike Milbury refer to Crosby and Malkin as crack addicts in last night's Pens/Flyers game? Yes, because Milbury is soooooo credible. Joke.

    Yes indeed. I think Milbury still holds a grunge against Pittsburgh for what happened in the early 90s. It certainly wouldn't be the first time he's said stuff about Crosby. It's funny in some ways and incredibly immature and unprofessional in others.

    I just joined this website, and found this thread. Hockey was the main reason I came here. Any one still kicking around?

    I don't plan on going anywhere for a long time. I've liked hockey forever but I didn't realize until recently that there was such a large fandom surrounding it! (:

    I'm starting to realise! I've met some awesome people in the fandom so far, and I've only known about it for like two weeks!

    Kicking up a dead comment but I watched the Washington game the other night and Mike Milbury had this gem: "Sidney Crosby has a PhD in hockey. Ovechkin has, well...something much less than that."

    I don't think anyone really listens to him anymore. Once NBC realizes he's useless they'll get rid of him and offer up a spot for someone who actually knows their shit. ;)

    Oh man, so Iggy is a Penguin now. Does anyone have strong opinions about this?

    Yes! @Captain Serious

    I'm pumped he's coming, honestly I am. But I'm concerned we won't have enough cap room to resign Malkin and Letang when the time comes.

    We've all been hanging on those rumors since the start of the season, but now that he's here, it seems surreal. Especially since we got him for practically nothing (at first it was either trade a big name, ie Orpik or Kennedy). To top it off, Boston got him first for the same trade, but apparently Shero swooped in and Calgary thought his offer was better. What a night. xP

    Letang is going to want a shitload more money than he's making this season, but I would like to see him stay since he's a top offensive-defenseman. Malkin on the other hand, I don't think he would want to go anywhere else right now. He might take the Sid route and take less to stay in Pittsburgh.

    Incredibly frustrating from the perspective of a Flyers fan, haha, but overall a great acquisition for Pittsburgh. Who wouldn't want to play there right now?
