As the playoff race is heating up the teams in the hunt will be facing increasing pressure. I was just checking out the schedules, man there should be lay it on the hockey coming up.
Of course looking at our schedule to the playoffs, we just started out an important road trip with a win in Chicago. We still have 5 of the next 6 on the road then we come home for 8 in the row.
We have 3 games with FLA(1 home/2 away), Rangers(1 home), Carolina(1 away), Montreal(1 away), plus games vs Craps, Cryers, Jersey, Boston, Calgary. So this is going to get very tense, tho I like our chances.
Did you ever think with last year we would be put into this position so late in the season. There are going to be a lot of tired and beat hockey players when this is all done, to think I'm just talking about the end of the regular season.
Group Therapy soon to come!

Anyways, that is a huge 2, brings us within 1 win of a playoff spot. Pens don't play until sunday, but tomorrow is a huge day, rangers, sabers, panthers, habs, and hurricanes are all playin so we will need to hope we get some help.
Some random thoughts:
- Pigman was out in the 3rd, no news yet, if he's hurt will there be another call up?
- Does anybody else feel like they'd rather have Thomas in there than Wallace, i was high on wallace earlier in the season but today he looked horrid, making big mistakes that caused opportunities for the Hawks...
- Can we please trade Hal Gill, i think he is out there for every goal that we ever let up... Come on, he played well last year down the stretch, this year he is horrid... I'd trade him for a corned beef sandwhich at this point...
- I'm thinking they should try out a line of Sid Staal and Kunitz....considering staal and kunitz's chemistry today, sid would be a def upgrade from pigman...
anyways, any other thoughts?

UPDATE: Another HUGE win for the Pesonation is that while Janne has stayed up to skate on the 4th line, Chris Minard has been placed on waivers. I like Chris Minard, I have been a supporter of him, but IDK if he can cut it in the bigs, he has gotten good time on good lines and hasn't done much... Even with his size, I was hoping that he'd be more of a menace in front of the net... So if this is the last time we see you in the Pens organization, the Pesonation wishes Minard well...

John Curry will be in nets for the Pens...
Gonzo(2)PP(Taffe,Caputi) 5:57 mins into the 1st....Pens 1-0
Our team is soft... We don't have an enforcer... Sean Avery is probably just as good as any of the wingers that we have... I think we should bring him in. I love Matt Cooke, but he is not filling in the shoes that Ruutu left him as the agitator/enforcer... We are letting teams push us around and run right over us, and trust me, with Avery with a Penguins logo on the front of his uni, that would not be happening... Locker room cancer my ass, I honestly don't buy into that, other than his on the ice antics and one off the ice antic he really hasn't raised that much concern in my book... Anyways, the Pens are bigger pussies on skates than the Icecapades, if we can get Avery on the cheap, I say go for it, we need more grit going into the playoffs. Hell even if we get a top tier winger, we are still a bunch of vag's... Sign Avery

We give Sid tons of shit here at PATP...some of it in jest, some of it serious... Over the last few days it seems that everybody has jumped on the "Let's bash sid" bandwagon and make Lady Alex out to be this stand up guy who promotes the nature of the game... Now i'm not gonna be like a capital fan and say that Lady Alex sucks... He's a great player, he's a great goal scorer... Is he the best player in the game right now... I personally would argue for Malkin because he is a better all around player, but I can accept arguments for Ovechkin as valid...
Anyways back to my original point... Right now everybody is calling Crosby a bitch, blah blah blah... Which I accept as true... But the thing everybody has to remember... OVECHKIN IS JUST AS MUCH OF A BITCH AS CROSBY... Remember when Ovechkin was losing every time to the Pens... He was makin as much noise as sid... Hell what about his temper tantrum when Chara put him on his ass (I still don't think it's a hook, but judge for yourself)
Last time I checked, Sid called out Lady Alex during the game, and she backed down... Right now Sid is not acting like a professional, but he is a great player, who is on a team playing sub-par hockey... You would be a complete joke to think that Lady Alex would not be acting the same way if he was playing on a team with such utter incompetence (especially after reaching the SCF the year prior)...
Anyways, I make fun of Lady Alex alot, but I understand he is a great player... But he is also a bitch and a classless player... They will probably sweep the pens because they are a better team this year... Anyways, i'm sure no capitals fans come here, but it's time they start to realize that their buddy is not this amazing stand up guy they make him out to be... So before anybody jumps on me, this article is not me trying to defend Sid for being a bitch or saying who is better than who... Also i'm not saying we should give sid a pass for his lack of captainatude and bitchyness...All i'm saying is that Ovechkin is a bitch too and Capitals fans suck...

Today on "The Drive" Eddie Crow called The Lip a punk, saying he played like a little punk with his whining. They also questioned his leadership on a consistent basis.
Then Scott Paulson surrendered that the best Nhl player resides in the Capitol. Paulson said that Lady Alex was into the Lips head the whole game.
Another comment was made saying the Craps wanted to put any doubt who the better team is just in case they would meet in the playoffs.
Our goaltending is really starting to scare me. I still have this feeling we will make it and make some noise in the playoffs.
I think we should start off with the Islanders Wednesday...
The Rangers fired Tom Renney after a 3-2 loss in overtime to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
New York has lost 10 of its last 12 games, I'm looking as the collapse of the Rangers as our Pens way to get in to the playoffs.
From Shelly Anderson's Penguins Chat Transcript.
icebirds: With Bylsma coming from the Pens farm team, is he more likely to give minor league players a chance on Crosby's wing when the get promoted to the NHL? I know alot of people were frustrated Therrian never gave Janne Pesonen a chance.
Shelly Anderson: I couldn't agree more about Janne Pesonen. In his four times with the NHL club since he signed over the summer out of the Finnish Elite Leaue, he never got a chance to show what, if anything, he could do as a top-six winger. Interm coach Dan Bylsma is the one who most directly has overseen Pesonen's adjustment to North American hockey, and Pesonen has played very well on a scoring line with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, so it would be telling to see how he might employ Pesonen under a fifth callup. The problem is, the Penguins are healthier now than they have been all season, so it's hard to say when Pesonen's next shot might come.
Wikes-Barre Scranton news:
Chris Cichocki (chih-CHOCK-ey) has been named interim assistant coach of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, it was announced on Monday.
Cichocki, 45, spent three-plus seasons as head coach of the Stockton Thunder of the ECHL, compiled a 93-121-33 record in 267 games behind the bench, and guided the Thunder to back-to-back Kelly Cup Playoff appearances in 2006-07 and 2007-08.
A right wing during his playing days, Cichocki spent parts of four seasons in the National Hockey League with the Detroit Red Wings and New Jersey Devils, compiling 23 points (11+12) and 27 penalty minutes in 68 career NHL contests.
PENGUINS NEWS AND NOTES
MIXING IT UP: The Penguins saw 16 different players score goals during their nine-game winning streak (Wallace, Caputi, Jeffrey, Engelland, Cashman, Mormina, Pesonen, James, Johnson, Daoust, Letestu, Taffe, Bissonnette, Cote, Goligoski, Henrich).
HOME COOKING: The Penguins 20 wins at the Wachovia Arena this season are the secnd-highest total by any team, and their 42 home points (20-5-0-2) are second highest, behind only Grand Rapids' 49 (21-4-3-4).
OVERALL EFFORT: The Penguins have allowed 149 goals against this season, the fourth lowest total in the AHL, and have scored 198 goals, the second-highest total in the league behind only Hershey (217).
FIRST TAKE: The Penguins have posted a 25-8-0-1 record when they score first. Those 25 wins are tied for the fourth-highest total in the league this year (Hershey - 28; Hamilton - 26; Rockford - 26).
PK IS OK AWAY: The Penguins rank tied for first in penalty killing on the road, stopping 87.8 percent (122 of 139) opponent attempts. The Penguins have also scored six shorthanded goals on the road, tied for second most in the league (Rochester - 7).

wow we looked flat, if we do not do something real quick this game could get out of hand very easily... The NBC's announcers are basically going down on Lady Alex every waking moment... Could anybody understand anything that he was saying in that mumbling interview?
Also, Caps fans are weak... They just set a record for most sell-outs in a row...8...
Second Period Recap:
Vomit...I understand we are a soft team overall, but I don't understand why we let the capitals push us around so much...stand up for yourselves....
Third period recap:
Saturday, February 21, 2009
So, I was watching the game replay on Comcast Sports Net (FSN for Philly) for some reason and those commentators made the FSN crew look like Al Michaels in his Prime... They had an extreme Philly agenda and they knew shit about hockey...
The biggest thing, was on the Pens final goal, their reflection went something like this...
"Wow, Biron comes out and makes an amazing hockey play and the Penguins get lucky and get a goal and might steal this game from the Flyers..."
The injured people are a mix of players and team employees, River Rats coach Jeff Daniels said, but declined to identify any of them until families can be contacted.
Police describe the injures as serious, but Daniels said they did not appear to be life threatening.
"We were very fortunate and lucky," Daniels said.
Daniels said the bus rolled after hitting bad weather on a return trip from Lowell. It struck a guardrail, coming to rest on its side and partially on the highway. The discovery of the disabled bus prompted other motorists to stop their vehicles on the highway and then try to slow approaching traffic, Daniels said.
Some seriously injured suffered lacerations during the accident.
Everybody on the bus was taken to Berkshire Medical Center. Four people were admitted for treatment and all aboard were being checked out by medical staff as a precaution.
"They've been great looking after us," Daniels said.
The bus was heading back to Albany after playing in Lowell, Mass. Wednesday night. It overturned just east of Lee.
The coach and the rest of the team are still at the hospital this morning.

Minard is playing instead of Bill Thomas who has been playing well as of lately, are the Pens putting Minard on display for other teams...
Honestly, at this point, out of any of the AHL players, expect Minard the most likely to be dealt come trade deadling. He cannot be sent to the AHL w/o being put on Waivers, so right now he is getting paid NHL money to do his best Duece Staley impression...
Another rumor that has been floating around was the Pens bringing back Colby Armstrong... This is an OK move, i just hope they don't give up that much for him. Colby is a pretty good player, but he is not a player that can come in and really spark things like a big name player could...
Anyways, NHL Trade deadline Looms... Right now i predict the pens make one or two minor moves, but nothing large. If Staal gets traded look for it in the off season...
I briefly touched upon this on the message board for my inconsiderate post about how Sidney Crosby doesn't like sick kids, but I just wanted to get everybody's thoughts on this. Are we, as fans, too nice to Sidney Crosby?
Pittsburgh has some of the greatest sports fans in the world, but with that, we are also the most critical of our players... But for some reason that does not translate over to Sidney Crosby... When Big Ben has one bad game... ONE GAME... the Steelers nation (especially Kevin) come out in hoards talking smack about him, and how he's not good, blah, blah blah... Sid has some bad games, we either ignore it or start making excuses for him. This last time he was sick, yeah that sucks, but I'm sorry, as a great athlete on a team in fear of missing the playoffs you HAVE TO SHOW UP, especially when you are playing teams like Toronto. Especially in a city like Pittsburgh, where our star athletes time and time again have shown their true medal while braving injury and illness. Another popular excuse is, he has no wingers... There is some validity to this, but he still has to put up points if he wants to be this great player. It's not like Malkin is playing with Maurice Richard over there... Hell Lemieux had some linemates that could barely skate and they put up 30 goals...
Now, before the Sidney Crosby Fanboys/Girls jump on me for this post, let me say something, I like Sidney Crosby, I think he's a great player, I think he will do great things... I just don't think that we should just let his lack of effort or leadership down this hard stretch slide. Right now, he screws up, we defend him... Maybe if we treated him like we do our Quarterbacks he will have extra motivation and play better... Jump on me if you want, but you all know, that if the Penguins miss the playoffs nobody is gonna be bad mouthin Sid "The Great One" Crosby, but hey, next season when the Steelers lose a game we're gonna be calling for Dennis Dixon to start...
Go Pens...Go Janne...
PS: Sid looks cross-eyed in that picture at the top...
Wednesday, February 18, 2009
Sidney Crosby wasn't there...Malkin, Staal, Fleury, Gonchar, etc.. were all there, but i could not find one picture that had Sid in it... This leads me to believe one of two things...
- Sidney Crosby does not like or care about sick kids...
- One of the sick kid's wish was that rather than waste his time bowling Sid hits the ice and practices shooting the damn puck...

Well Pesonation...our screams have finally been answered... Mikey T has finally been relieved of his duties and has been replaced by Danny B from Wilkes-BarrE... At first glance this does not have huge effects on the current state of the Pesonation, but after closer inspection we can see that this is a huge step forward in our prayers... It is obvious that Danny B is fairly high on Janne, having play on the top two lines in WBS and having him on the top PP unit... Also he knows what Janne can do when given the chance... Now, i'm not saying that we're gonna wake up tomorrow and have Janne rockin left wing with the lip, but long term if the pens keep danny b around it may be good for a Janne re-signing and possible chance next season...
Now it is no secret that the FUMT grass roots campaign started here at Pesonen and the Pens, and slowly gaine momentum and landed us here... Now until Danny B starts pissing us off and we start our FUDB campaign... Presenting...
So if any of you are going to a Pens, WBS game or a Finnish hockey game..... bring a free janne sign... post these images on your blog, we really need to push this one... Let the world know that we want to see janne in the bigs... We here at Pesonen and the Pens can only do so much... Now we are calling on the members of the Pesonation... Asking for your support... Show the world that we are strong and that we are many... So make your signs... Take pictures of them, send them into us, post on your blogs, post on message boards... Let the entire world know that we are done with this injustice and we cannot take it any longer... FREE JANNE...
Malkin never really seemed like he had an attitude problem, but who knows... Anyways, later tonight when i get the time i will be posting a very special State of the Pesonation/Mikey T Funeral...
Edit: Link was taken down...here is the story they are reporting...
Therrien is fed up with Malkin's attitude. He asks Malkin and Petr Sykora to come in to the coach's room.
"Shut the door, Petr. Sorry to do this to you, but I want you to translate this so there's no mistakes between me and Gino."
"Sure thing, Coach."
"Tell Gino if he doesn't buy into my system immediately, I'm going to bench him."
Sykora turns to Malkin, and translates it into Russian. Malkin responds in Russian. As he's talking, Sykora is getting visibly uncomfortable. He coughs nervously, then sighs. He's obviously trying to decide if he should translate exactly what Malkin said or to clean it up a little. After a second he turns to Therrien and translates:
"Tell that piece of shit if he ever benches me again I'll be on the next flight to Russia."
As Sykora finished the sentence, Malkin stood up and walked out of the room.
This story has come out as fan fiction... it's still funny as shit...

There is plenty of blame to go around twice in this game. Hard to believe we were up 2-0 after the first.
Silk and EatNpark looked horrid tonight.
The Lips line was dreadful.
We are so bad on the below the goal line cycle.
MAF(41 shots) is facing way to much rubber game in and game out.
This sucks, so much for character, who has it?
I dunno, I just hope the final nail doesn't come Monday @ 2pm
Fire F'n Mikey T or put me out of my misery....
Vince's Take: This team has no business in the playoffs... They give up a 2 pt lead to a shitty team, when their only veteran leader has returned... I'm sorry everybody, but my faith is on it's last thread... I don't know what happened, does our supporting cast suck, did we get too much of a sense of entitlement? I don't know... All i know is this team right now, does not deserve to waste the time of the tradition of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.... I hope we don't make a trade deadline move... Let's just get to the off season and lick our wounds and rebuild...
Friday, February 13, 2009
Right now, the biggest winger on the Pens radar is St. Louis... Which when you compare to the wingers that we've had the last 8 years is probably not a bad pick up... Janne might be sacrificed, but I actually would not expect that... The players that I would watch come trade deadline are, for the big pens, Whitney, Staal, Talbot... And for the baby pens, I would keep you eyes mainly on Dustin Jefferys, I honestly do think that the pens will keep Janne and Minard around due to their tremendous upside for the baby pens Calder Cup hopes... Anyways we are going to start kicking this into high gear here, the playoffs are looming and the Trade Deadline is only a stones throw away...
Anyways, atleast can Yeo before the playoffs...PLEASE
Luca Caputi is goin back down to play with Janne... This is probably because Gonchar is coming back and Mikey T has a hard on for Billy Thomas... I'm not saying he's bad or anything, but he is never gonna be a top line player (although considering that Pigman and Dupuis are on the 1st line then i guess anything can happen)... Anyways, I thought Caputi showed some potential and I wish they would have at least gave him top line minutes... But alas in the Mikey T system you have to prove you can play minutes griding it out (even if thats not the type of player you are) in order to show that you deserve top line minutes... Maybe that is why Mikey T is incapable of developing talent, cause their skill regress when they play the roles he assigns them...
Man I hate Mikey T so much...

Pens win... Pens win... That game was a pleasure to watch... The Sharks goalie stood tall and put up a hell of a game, but luckily the pens were able to squeeze that one out. I am not saying we are going to start rolling now, but I saw something in that team today that I haven't seen all season. The jump they had in their step, the fun they were having on the bench... This is the type of moment they can hopefully ride into the playoffs. I still do not believe that this team is capable of winning the Cup, but I also predicted the Steelers would be lucky to be 8-8 this year. Let's keep ourselves in it and see what happens come trade deadline...
Marc Andre Fleury continues to play Dr. Jeckyl and Mr.Hyde with us. One game he looks completely useless, and games like tonight he looks like the elite goaltender that carried the pens to the Stanley Cup. I honestly think that he plays off the energy of the team, and when the team plays well, he plays well, and when the team plays like shit, he follows...
Before we continue celebrations, one thing needs to happen... CROSBY'S LINE IS A COMPLETE JOKE... Dupuis and Kennedy are both barely 3rd liners, let alone 1st liners... Crosby was on fire today and set Pigman up so many times it made me cry... Sadly, idk if we have the answer on this team right now... Satan and Staal looked really good today, maybe they both deserve a bump back up to the top 2 lines?
Go Janne...Go Pens...FUMT
In happier news the Lake Erie Monsters are traveling to the Wachovia Arena tonight. The Monsters are 21-25-1-5 and are nearly 20 points behind WBS... The Pens need this win as they are still 7 points behind Hershey for the division and conference lead. I expect Janne to keep up his current pace and the pesonation to rally behind him...FUMT
Finally, over at the Confluence they posted an interesting article bashing shero... Good writing, sure beats the hell out of ours, but honestly, we've been saying all this shit for the past 3 months... I don't want to brag, but the anti-Ray Ray and MT bandwagon started within the Pesonation... Let's not forget that...
Go Pens...Go Janne...FUMT...FURS
Tuesday, February 10, 2009
Also, according to JB it seems that Minards call ups might be over, next time he comes up, he will have to clear waivers if they want him to go back down... And a top AHL tier tallent like him will not clear waivers...
Go Janne...Go Pens...FUMT
Monday, February 9, 2009
WBS Pens goalie John Curry was AHL named player of the week. John was 3-0 and stopped 80 of 84 shots.
Sunday, February 8, 2009
There's something almost unfair about Detroit's immense depth. They have guys like Hossa, Zetterberg, Cleary, Franzen and Holmstrom, all-proven 20-goal threats, on the wing. The Penguins have... Petr Sykora and? Who? Sidney Crosby had Tyler Kennedy and Pascal Dupuis on his wings today. They're fine third-line caliber player, but they shouldn't be on a line with one of the world's best players.
That statement in bold is pretty much a great way to sum up this disappointing season so far... When you think about it we have nobody else to put there... FUMT
Saturday, February 7, 2009
Friday, February 6, 2009
The only thing I have a problem with is that one of our top lines, had Tyler Kennedy and Pascal Dupuis on it... I am sorry that is just unacceptable. It is getting way too late into the season for this Mad Hatter "Change Places!" bullshit approach when it comes to making our lines. If we want to make a playoff run we need to start solidifying things.
Next two games we will really see a test of how capable this team really is. Unfortionatally prior incompitence does not leave us in the place to say "yeah we lost, but they played well..." Pens need to start moving... Honestly, at this point, anything short of an ECF appearance will most likely cost Mikey T his job...
Good to see Luca Caputi getting some chances... Chris Minard is getting the Mikey T treatment, i assume he'll be joining his "too good for the AHL not good enough for the NHL" cronies (Taffe and Janne) any day now...
Go Janne...Go Pens...FUMT
EDIT: OH SHIT...JANNE SCORES!!!!
A lot of positive's in this game.
Silk Letang is starting to step up yhe offensive part of his game, that is a real psoitive.
Our soft Pens really used the body in rubbing our the Jackets along the boards.
PP is looking better.
I like Vince can't imagine what F'n Mikey T is thinking putting Stonehands(Dupuis)and Pigman on the first line with the Lip.
MAF look really good again tonight.
But like the Lightning, the Bluejackets are bottom feeders in the NHL and for the second straight game the Pens faced a goalie in their first NHL game.(Rookie sensation Steve Mason is sidelined right now) But it is a win they needed to have and need to continue.
Florida has 3 games in hand, Buffalo 1 and Cryers 4..maybe the collapse of the Rangers might be exactly what we need. The last quarter of the season is going to get reaL INTERESTING with last 7 at home.
Wednesday, February 4, 2009
I'm sick of Malkin crediting everybody but himself for him carrying this team on his back and making plays. Here at pesonen and the pens, we are looking into bringing in Chad Ocho Cinco himself to teach Malkin how to do a real interview...
Go Janne...Go Pens...FUMT
Tuesday, February 3, 2009
Farm Report: Luca Caputi has 30 points in his last 28 AHL contests and with the suspension to Tyler Kennedy the Penguins have rewarded Caputi with his first call up. As a young, skilled offensive winger on a team flush with superstar centermen, it only makes sense to regard this kid very highly. However, after seeing Michel Therrien's treatment of Janne Pesonen (sticking him on a checking line and giving him little-to-no ice time with Evgeni Malkin or Sidney Crosby), I do not see an early impact from Caputi. But watch out for this kid next season.
For those of you that don't know, Ville Leino was the break out star from last years 2nd place team in the SM-Liiga, Jokerit. He finished the season with 28 goals and 49 assists (77 pts), while Janne finished with 34 goals and 44 assists (78 points). Ville is one year younger than Janne.
Honestly, this is not a suprise. It is no secret that the Red Wings know how to get the most out of their European tallent, and that Mikey T has developed nobody since he has been here (and no, he didn't develop crosby or malkin, a raw egg coulda developed them into good hockey players). Maybe we can all hope that Ville does well and maybe gets the Penguins organization wondering if Janne has the same tallent...
Go Pens...Go Janne...FUMT
Monday, February 2, 2009
Much like Santonio Holmes put the Cardinals dreams of super bowldom to rest, the Penguins may have just thrown a td on Janne's dreams of being an NHL superstar by recalling alleged prospect of Luca Caputti... Other than having an awesome name Luca doesn't bring much to the table... Maybe when he doens't score 5 goals in the 3 min that Mikey T gives him, they will give Janne another shot...
Has there ever been a #92 on the penguins... I can see it now... the greatest 4th line ever...
RW - #92 James "Silverback" Harrison
C - #15 Mike "Big Daddy" Zigomanis
LW - #20 Janne "The Last Zion" Pesonen
I guarantee nobody would fuck with Janne...
At first thought somebody could easily write off a 6th Super Bowl win as something that bares little to no effect on the next few months of Pittsburgh Penguins hockey, but I for one firmly disagree. Right now Pittsburgh is going to be one of the best places to be an athlete. The Steelers are done for the year, the Pirates blow, and the Penguins are the only ones to pick up the load. The Pittsburgh fans over the next month are going to be high off a Super Bowl, and will be looking for something to keep that high going. If the Penguins are able to rally off of that energy that is going to be in the air there might be hope yet. Forget the past two losses, forget the 1st half of the season, the time is now...Pittsburgh is on fire...time to keep it going...
All i know is the Penguins should all start smoking whatever Holmes is smoking, because he made one of the most clutch plays in Pittsburgh sports history...
On a final thought... The NFL is hocking Trophy Towels... They are not terrible towels so the proceeds do not goto the Allegheny Austic School... And they look gay...
Go Steelers...Go Pens...Go Janne...

This team could be in deep shit shortly if they aren't already. This so called trap they are playing needs alot of work with 9 goals against in the last 2 games. Now we can't fault the trap completely here. The D just let guys hang around the net way to long. Why are we playing a back-up goalie at this point when MAF has been outstanding his last two games. MAF needs to be between the pipes as simple as that.
While the season slips away, there is still time to sneak in. They are only 2 pts out, now the schedule will get a little tougher as we are going to see what character the pens have.
Please when we fire F'n Mikey T.. Please make sure Yeo goes with him. One last plee...Keep Orpik off the PP..
