A Look Back and a Look Ahead



A final "hey the season has started. LETS GET IT ON!

A Look Back and a Look Ahead

 

 

 

So here we are, once again at the start of another glorious NHL season. Some teams have improved, some have not, and everyone knows the road to the cup runs through Pittsburgh. Teams like the Flyers and Leafs have improved dramatically on paper. The Flyers are still stinging from their 1st round exit. Taking a gamble on Emery, and not so big of a gamble on Progner.

 The Leafs failed to make the playoffs, and have added some more punch on the wing side of the house with the addition of Kessel.

Washington has added Kunble but still has their hopes pinned on Theodore and Varlamov. Varly may be good, but only time will tell and with his outstanding performance during last years playoffs, one can only expect more of the same.

Then there are the Pens. The outsider wouldn’t think of Geno Malkin as a tough customer, but then again his throw down with Zetterberg and his constantly sticking his head in front of shots last year says otherwise.

 One wouldn’t think of Sid as a great leader at the ripe age of 22. But then again they didn’t have to ride the pine in game 7 of the finals due to injury, not wanting to cost his team the win.

One wouldn’t think of a guy they call "flower" as one of the most clutch goalie’s in the league. Back to back one goal games following a 5 goal drubbing says different.

His coach said he has no offensive skill, some say his coach went on at length about how is offensive skill was offensive. But Max Talbot says heart matters more.

The road to the cup still runs through Pittsburgh, and to those other teams out there thanks. Thanks for getting in the way, thanks for forcing the Pens to find out what it means to have heart, be tough, and learn to lead through trial by fire. Now you want the cup??
