Where we could have been, and where we are heading...

So, as most of you already know with Penguins camp opening next week, we are at the end of our drought of news and will no longer have to resort to random-interest pieces to attract viewers and to be linked in other blogs. Anyways, I figured before we move onto the next season, we should just take one look back to what could have been, and where we are going...

Anyways, I will admit, that when Marian Hossa first came to Pittsburgh last year, I jumped on that badwagon probably faster than anybody. Hossa quickly jumped to the top of my list of Penguin players and became an instant hit in my book. Although I wasn't dumb enough as some people to go out and buy $180 on a Hossa jersey, I was one of the few that were convinced that Hossa was going to become a mainstay in Pittsburgh.

So, you have to ask yourself, what would have happened if we did resign hossa. Well, Satan and Fedetenko probably would have not signed... Chances are the Pens may have not brought Pesonen over... So instead of looking at pictures of the week and reading interesting facts about Janne, we could be workin a whole different angle...

Would you be reading hossa's house if he signed this summer?

Anyways, what happened happened, I would have loved to keep Marian in Pittsburgh, but he left, and we got Janne... Will he replace Marian... well that is why we are going to take a quick look forward...

As I expressed earlier explaining the picture of Conks and Hossa being from the future, i figured i'd share a few more interesting snap shots i got from my travels...

Two years in a row, sitting and morning on the ice in pittsburgh must be nice...

Janne Posing with the cup...and yes he decided to keep some of his sponsors when he came over,
anyways, who the hell would not want to sport Audi shin pads?

In conclusion, yes, Janne will replace Marian... and we will prevail..

Well anyway, stay tuned people, we are about to pull this into high gear, camp starts next week... Go Pens and Go Janne...

V, nice work with the photoshop, as we talked the other you went out and did. Janne will look like a natural hoisting the cup this coming season..

Did you knew that Janne has left Finland and have already arrived to Pittsburgh on last Wednesday?

Vince said...

no i did not know that, do you have any news sources to cite for that? I must be slipping in my old age...

Hello Vince - sorry for delay concerning my answer. I know only that he lives at the moment in some hotel with some other players. And the moment of truth will start tomorrow, because The Pittsburgh Penguins will open their training camp for the 2008-09 season on Tuesday, Sept. 16.
