Pens had a horrible preseason. I hope that's not an indication of things to come, but of course if you listen to Mark Madden long enough you start thinking it will be.

With the way the divisions are restructured, we'll probably finish 2nd in our division, unless one of our goalies has a career year or all of them have shitty years. Probably. Boston and New York will give us trouble, but otherwise I don't see too many other teams threatening us.

The preseason is never indicative of the regular season. Even the first 1/4 of the season isn't very good for gauging which teams are the best.

The Penguins will finish near the top of the eastern conference, but unless Bylsma starts emphasizing accountability and proper d-zone coverage, they're not going to be winning anything significant. Kris Letang cannot be playing rover if the Penguins hope to win any cups. Malkin and Neal have to start playing something resembling hockey, because I'm not really sure what it is they play.

If Shero goes and makes idiotic trades again which result in taking away Bennett's spot then he should be fired. That was the big mistake the Penguins made last year. They took the only actual hockey player off of the second line. At least when Bennett is there, Malkin and Neal are effective.

Boston are poised for another great year. I think Iginla will be much more effective given increased offensive zone time and playing with much more competent centers than Matt Stajan. I'm really not sure what their lines are but if you have Eriksson and Krejci out with Iginla then at least the former two can help cover for Iginla's lack of defensive and neutral zone play. As much as I hate him for not accepting an adults name, Doug Hamilton will be a good addition to the Bruins. If not Hamilton, then Krug or Bartkowski can hopefully fill the hole left by Ference leaving.

is mark madden a total buffoon? evidence you have offered here points to yes

you're better off simming the season in NHL 2014 and betting based on that than betting based on preseason dude cmon

I don't think preseason is a good indication of the regular season, I was only pointing out that it was really shitty for us. Mark Madden tends to point out every flaw in Pittsburgh sports teams and just hammer away on them, although with the Pens he tends to be very spot on. He hates that Bennett keeps getting dropped further and further in order to make room for guys like Jokinen.

Like I said though, I think we'll be near the top, probably 2nd in the division/conference. We simply have too much firepower not to be near the top

I think getting Eriksson will benefit Boston beyond belief. Not only a great, underrated player, but plays on the wing and will make Boston's offence something to be reckoned with. I think it was also a good trade for Dallas who will be in the 8-10th seed range. I'm gonna go out a limb here and say they only won the cup because of Vancouver's collapse. The nucks had the talent that they should of won it that year. I think the bruins are better this year and will finish higher in the regular season. They have been kind of like the kings in the way that they are tough rigorous team that thrives in the playoffs, but usually doesnt finish in a very high seed or win their division

Does Logan Couture have Progeria?

Boyle, Marleau and Jumbo definitely have some tread on the tires but the Sharks have some good younger talents with Burns, Couture, Hertl, Braun, Niemi

It's not all doom and gloom

Also with your being a Wings fan is there some hilariously ironic joke I'm missing about aging stars here?

I know you haven't seen it in a couple years, but they score goals. Exciting, I know.

The pens will be fine, and finish 1 or 2 in the division. Playoffs...who knows

But hey, maybe Kessel can buy himself a center with actual hand-eye coordination and stuff like that when he signs his new deal

So what do you guys think of Ovy's potential this year? I have so many caps fans as friends he's all I ever ****ing hear about during hockey season. I personally think he needs to get out of DC if he ever wants to win, but I'd like some other opinions

Ovi will have 4-5 just god-awful defensive plays just to make Don Cherry cry himself to sleep at night, but other than that he'll be okay. I don't think he'll win the Hart again or anything, longer season means more time for cold streaks, which he always has plenty of. Probably the most up-and-down player in the league (aside from Jeff Carter with Scott Hartnell's wife huehuehuehuehue).

But overall I'd say a solid year coming from Ovi

Edit: Oh, to answer what you're looking for I don't think he'll win one in DC either. I think he needs to go to an already good team and become a compliment to another elite player.

i think that ovi will score some goals, but some nights he wont score some goals. this will cause some people to say he is doing bad and some people will say he is doing well. just my opinion though.

yeah they have a bit of a disadvantage there but I wouldn't go so far as to say they suck lol, there's a couple of promising younger players. I got into hockey cuz of them, I'd watch their games on TV when I was little (they were the nearest team to where I used to live) and I didn't really know what was going on but it was fun. Ironically, now that I live 9000 miles from SJ it's way easier to watch than it was back then
