Mistake City

[toronto.png][newjersey.png]
Betting on sports is how you learn to hate teams.
Toronto just wouldn't die.
We lose.

How does New Jersey shut down the Pens, but get smoked by Toronto?
That is a joke.
John Madden can shutdown Crosby, but he lets Matt Stajan poop in his mouth.


[JS]


Check out Marty Brodeur get jacked at Niklas Hagman for spraying ice in his face on the shutout goal:


“I decided I was going to try something else and I felt pretty confident with it,” Hagman said, “I didn’t want to put snow in his face. That’s why I felt a little bad. I didn’t want to celebrate too much. I didn’t want to be cocky.”[yahoo]

Not bad as far as balance. We'll see.

Some people are already flipping out. We knew this was coming. It is just something we're all going to have to deal with, until some people learn how to watch an NHL season.

Gameday tomorrow:

Someone mentioned we should sign "Rambo," because he can get some shots off.

We really don't want to, so give us someone else who gets shots off.



Go Pens.

The Flu.

Staff if you don't use sh0ez idea you're jokes.

Amazing.

jefe p said...

the pens need to take more shots.. of whiskey. cut loose.

the Malk and Cookies line better chip a few in tonight.

and Satan needs to represent. its his night.

heres hoping to see the Coyotes get jobbed at Jobing.

fleuryous said...

I'm going to have to go with Charlton Heston on this one.


And Brodeur has a right to be pissed. The guy didn't mean to, and he felt bad, but still...Brodeur was cheated. haha.

I'm actually excited to see these lines tomorrow night.

Call me crazy...but you'd be wrong ;).

OH YES.

e.mirchich said...

I nominate either Shooter McGavin, or this badass sniper Simo Hayha that I stumbled upon a while back. Roughly 500 confirmed kills, that's a lot of shots.

This girl gets her shots off.

Jimmy Page gets his shots off?

Jimmy Page

dying alive said...

Interesting lines, but does that mean we won't see Talbot for a while? :(

KaylaJ said...

well, cameras take a lot of shots...and after that lame joke i'm pretty sure i will too.

anyway, if you want to be good at penalty shots (scream like pee wee at today's secret word!!) it helps if you're finnish.

Joshua said...

Shots are one thing, but scoring chances are another. Obviously there is still room for improvement, but our scoring chances have been high. We've had a lot of posts and errant shots that don't get on net. It's not as bad as some people make it sound. The Pens are generating offensive chances. They're just not executing. It's going to start gelling. We've been playing some solid defensive teams with damn-good goalies lately too.

That said, Malkin and Crosby shouldn't be on the same line together except in an emergency or when we are playing a really weak team. Malkin belongs in the middle with Sykora on his wing. I'm glad we're going back to that combo. Maybe TK/Stall/Satan can have a scoring punch. This could be a nice alignment.

Joshua said...

Give me Carlos Hathcock. He supposedly shot an NVA sniper through the scope.

brenna said...

i'm voting for charlie circa mighty ducks 1, or maybe hans.

bxf4636 said...

To increase shooting, Pens should go after: Scott Gomez. Shoots a lot and wins 57% of his face-offs.

Player: Scott Gomez
Team: NYR
Pos: C
GP: 12
G: 3
A: 8
P: 11
+/-: 0
PIM : 8
PP: 0
SH: 0
GW: 2
OT: 0
S: 50
S%: 6%
TOI/G: 22:57
Sft/G: 26.6
FO%: 57.4%

chris e said...

I agree with nature boy....Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Badasses.

Brandon said...

Hold the phone...

I might be late to the party here...

...but has anyone realized that the Coyotes play at the Jobing.com arena?

I'm surprised the Leafs didn't throw Joseph in there for the shootout again.

We all know how well that worked last time.

How about Omar Little from the Wire?

I am sure that Charlie would approve.

Steve In Denver said...

Another vote for Ron Jeremy. He gots his shots off and obviously scored quite a bit = good shooting percentage.

Marty looks good in snow. Great tactic....now someone has to figure out how to get a blast from a water bottle into the goalie's face on a shootout.

queenofthesky82 said...

If we want to win on gameday, this is who we need. Connor Mc Cloud of the clan Mac Leod. He is an immortal highlander and has lived thousand of years...there can only be one.

Do it.

Carroll said...

Dupuis leaves practice

• LW Pascal Dupuis left practice Wednesday at San Jose about halfway through the session and did not return. As part of coach Michel Therrien's reconfigured forward lines, Dupuis had been skating with C Sidney Crosby and RW Ruslan Fedotenko. The Penguins did not provide an update on Dupuis' status for their game at Phoenix tonight.

• D Hal Gill practiced yesterday
• C Max Talbot did not practice and is unlikely to play against Phoenix

Carroll said...

sorry for the crappy link it's from Trib, also on the Pen site.

debrisslide said...

Hopefully Dupuis just had to puke or something. Like we need any more undisclosed injuries.

I nominate The Tenth Doctor. Do it. I mean really, he's such a fucking badass.

Pittsburghler said...

Peter North is a no-brainer. Not just shots, but MONEY SHOTS.

Mike D. said...

I at first thought Ron Jeremy as well.

How about John McClane. Can't go wrong with Die Hard.

Chubs said...

Get some shots off? How about Bogey in "Casablanca"? Clint Eastwood in "The Unforgiven"?

justincredibleh said...

The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the score of the Devils/Maple Leafs game was "Fail City." Staff went with Mistake City.

ricks1683 said...

Two Words: Danny Noonan

Got a few good shots off AND buried it...

akus said...

My first thought was also Butch & The Kid(who is from PA) or Harry Callahan.

Its a long shot, but since its on the Eve Of Halloween.

Jamison said...

got to go with Shooter McGavin.

Carroll said...

Pee Wee Herman.
He gets his shots off (in public) and he's kid friendly too.

Plus he'll totally distract Wayne and Charlie.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVKsd8z6scw

dying alive said...

I vote Michael Meyers. He doesn't use a gun, but his shots always connect. Plus it's perfect timing!

No Dupuis? Are we going to have any players left?

diabeticsRcooler said...

I think at one point this year you have to go with Connor MacLeod from the Highlander

team atwood said...

http://nhl.fanhouse.com/2008/10/30/malkin-frustrated-with-pens-play/

russian interview with malkin translated to english. hes pissed.

team atwood said...

oh.. and he references saving the motherland.. what a beast.

debrisslide said...

Malkin knows what's up, obviously. . .anyone who doubts him is crazy. It's okay, Evgeni. SAVE THE MOTHERLAND.

Pooch said...

I will have to cast my vote for the ENTIRE cast of Red Dawn. Who knew a Sheen- Swazye- Howell line could be so effective against an invading Russian force.

brett said...

how about Clive Owen in Shoot 'em Up: Killin people with a carrot and savin that baby. Epic.

tanya said...

no one hasn't tol malkin that it's still october?

"Three shots in a period? This is horrible!" hmmmm....calm down, unload your gun and check the standings

KaylaJ said...

as long as we're on the movies, what about jason statham? that guy shoots at everything in his movies. plus he was cool as turkish

Victor Raison said...

True, it is only October.

All the same, 3 shots in a period is pretty bad. I am heartened to see that Malkin is pissed about it. A good player/team recognizes areas of weakness and works to improve them. I'd feel worse if Malkin said, "Meh, it's only October, we'll get better." There's no reason for jumping off the bridge yet, but at the same time; Apathy does not breed Excellence. I'm excited to see how Malkin's anger translates on the ice.

Save the Motherland = Money.
I'm definately referencing that quote anytime I'm facing a deadline.

Flapper said...

Evidently, golfer John Daly doesn't shy away from taking too many shots...

Or Voorhees. Dude fucked shit up.

kstewy16 said...

Charlie blows plenty of loads... Why don't we just stick with him?
But being that we are playing the Coyotes, I think some western style John Wayne would be better.

fleuryous said...

jmagnifico...your icon is priceless.

Adrienne said...

I'm a fan of the lines for tonight. Malkin and Crosby need to be on separate lines, and I think what Therrien came up with is pretty solid.

dmbforum40 said...

I continue the movement for Peter North..
Always has a solid wrister and never pulls up and passes on taking a shot.

DO IT..

Paul said...

Sign Bill Clinton, he gets shots off.

@ jawsh- Muldoon is clutch. When the Pens hold onto the puck too long you can scream "SHOOT HER! SHOOOOOOOOT HERRRRRR!" at the screen.

thenetranger56 said...

I think you will see a much better game out of Tank tonight considering he will have the confidence from playing with Bing last game towards the end and getting 4-5 passes right on his tape in the slot (burying one)...I just don't think Satan and Tank work well together considering they are too much of the same player and want to go between the dots.

brndlynn said...

Im incredibly happy that Malkin is pisssed - Im sure Crosby and the rest are as well. We as fans have no effect on the end result of each game. Sure - we can cheer and yell when we're there and that helps to motivate them... but we can't force them to do something that they can't do or that they dont want to do. Thats why we, as fans, need to remember thats its only October and calm down. HOWEVER.... if the players were sitting here thinking that they were satisfied with their record and quality of play as it stands now I would be worried. They have to be motivated to play better than they did the night before regardless if they won or lost. They have to find that next level to take their play to.even when it seems impossible They need to work and practice together until they instinctively know where their linemates are on the ice. These are all things that they need to do - not us. And we've seen time and time again that some of the best motivators for these guys are anger and frustration. I have no doubt that Malkins sentiments are the same as the rest of the locker room. And I have no doubt that they will use those feelings to take their game to where it needs to be. They need to be pissed - we need to have faith.

Go Pens.

ryan said...

wow, i can't believe the second comment was about ron jeremy. i'm out of ideas...

IamRyanD said...

what about the sniper from saving private ryan? i remember going crazy in the scene where he shoots the other sniper right through the scope

how about the guy with the chain gun in the movie predator? he took out a forest.

http://www.dvdtimes.co.uk/images/KevinGilvear/predator3.jpg

or we could go with the man the gets us out of tight situations, Ari Gold from entourage.

do it.

bayonetwork said...

scratch that, this is the guy that took out a forest:

though either would work.

Hopefully Malkin will start shooting more. He's got one of the deadliest shots in the league. I don't know why he refuses to use it.
