Penguins get Crosby

Penguins won the 1st pick in the NHL lottery. So they'll take Crosby.

Who would have thunk one of the bankrupt teams would have gotten Crosby, and now with him and Fleury in the net, they'll have one heck of a team.

Sucks to be GM of the Panthers right about now.

Then again, when does it not?



With the potential drafting of Crosby, the prospect of Recchi returning, and another installment of the Lemieux farewell tour, it looks like the glory years of the Pens may be relived this year. Without the Jagr mullet though, much to the disappointment of puckbunnies across the globe.

I hope Detroit gets Stills and Nash.

No one wants Young.

Hey, the only mullet you'll ever see this puckbunny get excited over is Larry's.

I am pretty excited for the Pens.

LoserAlert:

I had the list of the final teams all down on a piece of paper as TSN announced the order....I thought "Ooo..Montreal" - then they got called. After the Wild were called, I got REALLY nervous, knowing two sucky markets were left, and Pittsburgh.

Cheers for Pittsburgh...looking forward to making the 3 hour drive to see a game this winter.

Conspiracy theory...just like the 85 NBA draft was rigged for the Knicks and Ewing, this was rigged for the Penguins to get Crosby and save the franchise.

Nice.

I guess I qualify for loserdom as well then. My fellow co-workers and I watched the live stream webcast of the lottery while conducting an office pool for who would grab the first overall pick.

Yes, I lost. Damned Columbus can't even win at being a loser.

According to the new scheduling system, cities in the Western Conference will only see Crosby once every 3 years. The new schedule encourages divisional rivalries with 8 games between divisional teams, 6 between the other teams in the conference and a 5 game road trip to the other conference with a 5 game home stand against teams from the other conference. So if he is the second coming of Gretzky which I doubt, many fans won't see him live and in person.

Being a PENS fans since 87 (eventhough I live near Toronto) I couldn't be happier. With Lemieux practically done, Jagr gone and a host of other talented Pens that have left the new crop of young players look great. And with Fleury in net and now Crosby (the next Lemieux) we finally should get back on winning ways (eventhough it'll still take a couple of years). GO PENS GO!!!

Maybe this year will be the first year the Pens don't totally suck since 2001!

I would've liked to see Crosby go to a Canadian team, but oh well. It'll be interesting to see how he does in the big league as he was absolutely incredible in the QMJHL.

I saw a magazine at the shop the other night and it said something like "Can Sidney Crosby Save the NHL" . Geez.. no pressure on the kid or anything!

I second that - I absolute love Pittsburgh (my fave, along with the Habs) solely because of Mario and am terribly excited to see them play together.

Let`s hope Crosby doesn`t turn out to be as "great" as Eric Lindros after all the hype dies down...

lets not anoint fleury as golden just yet. he has been a little shaky so far. this should be his 'coming out' year but only time will tell.
the pens may enjoy 5-7 years of success before their entire team hits free agency at the same time.
