  1. Who the hell is Dave and what other profiles does he have?
  2. That's what happens to goalies that have underachieving teams playing in front of them, leaving them hung out to dry time and time again. Many of those 8 years they were really not even good enough to deserve a playoff berth, but Fleury managed to steal enough wins to keep them in contention year in and year out. That's what great goalies do.
  3. Please correct me if I am mistaken, but wasn't it Fleury who led the Penguins past the 2nd round in 2017? I'm pretty sure he was in net for the 2nd round series vs. Washington.
  4. Now why on earth do you feel the need to ask me to do exactly what I have already been doing all along?
  5. Hopefully those players will help the team accomplish something that is worthy of hanging a banner for.
  6. I was referring to the playoffs, please try to follow along. The 41 regular season wins were mentioned in a different post.
  7. That's all fine and good, but what I most care about is the fact that Penn State had four players drafted, a number topped by only one school and matched by three others.
  8. The same exact team in front of him but superior teams opposing them. The way the bracket worked out this year, the 1st and 2nd rounds provided the toughest opponents the Pens would have to go through on their way to the cup. They beat Columbus and Washington based on how great the goaltending was, they beat Ottawa and Nashville based on how well the rest of the team played. Look at the goal support as well as the number of shots and quality of shots that each goalie faced and it becomes very clear that it was a difference of night and day. If Murray doesn't get hurt prior to Game 1 of the 1st round the Pens get swept in the 2nd round (that is if they manage to survive the 1st round).
  9. Any goalie can win when the team in front of him plays as great as the Penguins have in each and every one of his 41 wins. Put Jeff Zatkoff back in there and they would have won those same 41 games. The thing is they aren't winning because of Murray, they're winning in spite of him.
  10. Ken Wregget was actually good though, 3rd best goalie in Penguins history after Fleury and Barrasso.
  11. I wouldn't be surprised if this kid makes the same kind of impact for Minnesota as Brock Boesser did for your Fighting Hawks a couple of years ago. I like the odds of my Nittany Lions to finish first in the Big 10 this year, but I expect the Gophers to be right there with them all the way right down to possibly the very last weekend series of the regular season. As far as that goes, I really don't see Wisconsin or Ohio State as pushovers either and the presence of Notre Dame will only improve the overall strength of the conference. Poor Michigan and Michigan State may not beat anybody but each other in 2017-18.
  12. Bold prediction : Vegas will make the playoffs next year and Pittsburgh will not
  13. Never forget who carried them through the first two rounds against much better opponents than they faced in the later rounds.
