Being a Penguins fan, their 3-2-1 start this season has been tough, especially the last two losses coming to the hated cross-state rivals the Flyers and losing a 3-1 lead in the 3rd period to Detroit last game. The new system under Mike Johnston and Jim Rutherford is really showing promise, but we need to turn that promise into success. We have the caliber of talent that we should be able to put a good product out there night after night, not saying we should be guaranteed to win night after night, but saying what I am trying to say is that we should be able to go out there night in and night out and play to our strengths, hold our leads, and put our best stuff out there.
But I have to give props to the Penguins for going out and making huge moves in trading Neal/bringing in Hornqvist, and going out and signing Ehrhoff. Also in losing Engelland, Orpik, and Niskanen it will be good for the young guns liks Despres, Harrington, and maybe even Pouliot to get their crack at the Pens roster. This is a promising year for the Penguins, just have see where we end up. #LetsGoPens
