B's dominated the Pens in Game 1. Need to get tougher if they are going to contend with Bs or the West.

Nope, series is over, per fans of all other fan bases on NHL.com.

Just about everyone picked the Pens in 6 or 7.
Then they ALL forget that means the Pens will LOSE 2 or 3 games.

Idiots.

Tougher? They need to stay away from the tough stuff. Malkin spending over 7 minutes in the box to start the 3rd while the Pens were on a PP is not smart. Doesn't anyone remember the Pens losing to the Flyers because of the tough stuff? Pens need to play their game and not get sucked in to the rough stuff.

Hypocrites too, considering they label Penguins fans as ignorant and flaky.

And I'm starting to get sick and tired of all these fans of other teams preaching respect and then proclaiming that the Penguins and their fans don't deserve any, often resorting to childish insults in the process. (Calling Sidney Crosby "Cindy Crysby" was cute and clever the first trillion times, but not anymore.) It's no different than modern-day American liberals preaching tolerance and inclusion while they demonize and ostracize anybody who doesn't share their precious political views, or Jesus freaks who preach forgiveness while refusing to forgive others for the errors in their ways.

You want respect? Stop labeling our fan base as ignorant when there are plenty of ignorant hockey fans in general. Stop labeling our fan base as bandwagoners when hard data proves that many fan bases have done a considerably worse job of supporting their teams over the last 25 years than Penguins fans have. Stop pretending that 90% of Penguins fans are guilty of whatever negative trait you perceive. I suppose 90% of black people are lazy too, huh?

Above all else, stop making **** up about the Penguins' recent history. Learn the difference between "deliberately tanking for draft picks" and cutting costs in order to stay solvent while playing in the most obsolete arena in the NHL. Learn the real reasons behind the Penguins' bankruptcy in 1998, namely a series of idiotic business decisions by former owner Howard Baldwin, such as signing the most expensive lease in the NHL on the league's oldest arena. Learn the real reason for the relocation threats in 2007, namely the lack of progress on getting a new arena built in Pittsburgh. If the bankruptcy and relocation threats had anything to do with fan support, then the team would have just folded or left, period. They wouldn't have bothered toughing it out in the first place.

And fans of the "Original Six" need to get a hotel room already. Having a circle jerk between yourselves on virtually every hockey forum is unbecoming. Congratulations for being a fan of one of those six teams. Too bad there are more than six teams in the NHL today. You call Penguins fans entitled? Quite frankly, there's nothing more entitled than "Original Six" fans who act like the other 24 teams all need to roll over and make way for them simply because they have tenure. Alienating hockey fans in other cities is a great way to stunt the growth of the NHL. So go get a hotel room, and fans of SEC football will be by soon to...lend you a hand.

I thought the biggest issue was how badly they were outdrawn in faceoffs. The Bruins won something like 2/3 of them during game one. Makes it pretty easy to dictate the flow of the game when you start with the puck twice as often.

Well, it is going to be a tough road back in it after 2 losses at home. Not impossible, but very difficult.
