My prayer.

Basically, it’s simple. There was a few teams in play, but my decision was between Pittsburgh and Detroit. Detroit won because the team stayed together and it’s a strong hockey team, a strong organization. Don’t want to take anything from Pittsburgh. I had a great time there, unbelievable young players and great group. But I just feel, you know, a little bit better chance here.”

Dear Lord,

Please.  Please please please pleasepleaseplease.

All I’m asking, in addition to someday being David Conrad’s best friend and someday being fabulously independently wealthy and someday selling a screenplay and someday living to see the eradication of the pigeon from Earth, ALL I AM ASKING is this:

PLEASE let the Pens be the ones to stop the Red Wings from winning the Cup.

That is all.

    If Sid has anything to say about it, rest assured,PittGirl. He said as much an interview near his birthday,”I thought I was motivated before. It’s definitely more now.” Not that he was referring to revenge, but certainly he was referring to his vast disappointment. Just imagine now…

    Not usually one for violence but I think a well-placed stick to the teeth may be in order on this once…

    Pittgirl, when Hossa signed with them I said “all I want is for him to come two wins shy of the Cup again.”

    Not to toot my own horn, but I put those octopi-chuckers in their place in the comments of that story.
