RBK Blog


Those solid stripes down the arms look a little ehhhhhh.......

And these are still your grandmother's Maple Leaf jerseys.

What is Jason Blake doing? What a clown.


I'll kill you

..................................................

Second things second.




The Ducks have suspended Scott Niedermayer for not showing up to camp.

Big deal.
But, wait. Now his $42.3 million won't count against the Ducks' cap this season.
Or something. We don't know what's going on. [ NHL Fanhouse ]

Basically, the Ducks and Niedermayer could job and circumvent the salary cap.

9/12


US Airways says "Hey, Pittsburgh, we're gonna cut some more flights....
but we also dedicated an airbus to the Steelers on the same day of the announcement to smooth it over."
[ Post Gazette ]

Veteran move.

No word on whether or not the engines will choke if it flies over Heinz Field in January.

...........................................................................

The Pens signed three coaches to extensions. [ LGP.com ]


You talk solid ties, you talk Mike Yeo.
He's two seconds from putting that lady behind him in the Sharpshooter.

When you hear Errey say, "I talked to Mike Yeo..." you know a big third period is just beginning.

......................................................................

Mirtle is a big deal. [ James Mirtle ]
He is conducting a poll, asking fans which teams are gonna make the playoffs.
The Pens are second, garnering 98% of votes in the East.

The Ron Newcomer Q&A is ready to go.
It crashed our computers when it hit our Gmail account at 7:31 pm on Wednesday.

Q&A and Photoshop Expo coming Sunday night.

Goal Judge Blog

We got this news straight from the horse's son's mouth.

The Pens have eliminated goal judges completely.
No man behind the net, and no dude up in a box watching a video screen.

When the normal timekeeper of the game sees the ref's hand point to the net, the light goes on.

We got the news from Matthew Rudzki...
son of Leo Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrudzki (as it is announced prior to every Pens home game by Jon Barbero.)


Marty says thanks, Matthew.

OPENING FACEOFF COUNTDOWN

Gary Rissling

You know the NHL season is close when Gary Rissling makes an appearance.

We couldn't find Victor, and Kjell is still playing the pass in Game 7.
Gary Rissling was due.

#22?

How does Newcomer get the same exact facial expression every damn time? He is amazingly consistent.

Barrasso35 said...

Brilliant post title tonight, gentlemen.

The time is close for hockey... let's drop the puck.

dave said...

avs jerseys are awful

how about slick ric jackman for #22?

Staff said...

Ron Newcomer would have that same expression when staring down a lion on an African savanna.
No fear.

Waking up Wednesday and walking outside should've made everyone raise a fist in the air in triumph as they walked to their car or bus stop.

Ric Jackman is in the early lead.

I'm Ric Jackman, bitch!!

count another vote for The Ric

Nathan said...

The immortal Sven Butenschon wore #22 in Pittsburgh. Now I think he's selling bratwurst somewhere in Germany.

Loser Chris said...

Gotta be Paul Stanton! Didn't Norm MacIver wear 22?

Rwarner174 said...

Anyone know if fox sports has released their HD schedule yet? I hope the oct 5 game is in HDTV because I wanted to have a get together of family and friends for the first game.

Troy Loney said...

Anderson's shorts are classic. At least you can't blatantly see his junk or anything, not that it would phase Newcomer in the least.

homesprout said...

#22!? Yes the legendary Norm Maciver wore that number!

Jason said...

gary anderson's shorts are money.

jackman? cmon, you cant job tocchet like that, even though you probably already used him for 92.

Korn said...

Has to be Paul Stanton, just has to...

You know it's almost hockey season when Marty shows up. The appearance of that rooster always kills me... hilarious.

The ~D said...

Just an FYI...if anyone is considering picking up NHL 08, be forewarned. It's hard as hell even though it's fun. I did eventually win a game (after 3 tries). Sykora is money on Bing's line.

Don K. Show said...

You couldn't find Viktor? That's no suprise.

I don't think he ever showed up while wearing a Penguins uniform anyways.

Loser Chris said...

the ~d,

I can't decide yet if it's hard or if I'm just having a hard time adjusting to the controls. Need to hit the practice rink I think.

Loser Chris said...

For all the NHL 08 people out there... here is the code for the new jerseys if you want it:
h3oyxpwksf8ibcgt

This works for XBOX 360 for sure, don't know about PS3.

PROOF!

Hooks Orpik said...

loser chris, i got the game and saw you needed a code (thanks for it btw), but where do you enter it? i didn't really see anywhere to do it, but my mind was narrowed to exploring the new gameplay. which is sick.

+1 to Pensblog for giving us a Marty (the official chicken of Pensblog) caption. Yesss!

Loser Chris said...

I think you can enter it when you try to select the new jerseys. There's also a way via the main menu, probably through My NHL 08.

The Hebrew Hammer said...

It's just mud right now. Barrasso, that's one hell of an avatar. Pete and Pete was and still is the best show in television history.

BluffTalk said...

Count me in for a Sven B. vote for #22.
