Thread was over 5000 posts so making a new one.

The Penguins won the cup. The draft is soon and then free agency. You know the drill.

Re: Mr. Crosby's Penguins = 4X Champs

Blues name Mike Yeo as their head coach for the 2017-18 season on a 4 year deal.

A little strange seeing as a lot can change in a year and you never know who will be available next summer

Re: Mr. Crosby's Penguins = 4X Champs

I am clearly playing off Mr. Popper's penguins with the title. All you geeks need blow a goat.

nice to see the hockey thread tradition of bottom tier thread titles continue
They can't exactly be bottom tier because all my titles are better than your 0 suggestions.

Well isn't that title misleading.
Please explain your bizarre comment.

2 better options that I just came up with imo

Understandable you're a big fan of questionable Jim Carrey movies and want to pay homage with thread titles, but it's just that I'm of the opinion the Penguins have had long enough to celebrate their win. That happened literally so long ago that it was in the last thread and the hockey world is just MOVING ALONG.

lulz, I will give it a week before moving on.

These are good suggestions.

My thread titles are now closer to bottom tier.

Re: Mr. Crosby's Penguins = 4X Champs

The Ducks are apparently going to re-hire Randy Carlyle as their head coach

ayy lmao

EDIT: not that he's a bad coach per se, just lel @ this being the answer to fix/change things. Yes, he coached them to the Cup but he also has never even won a playoff series without Neidermeyer & Pronger. Don't understand.

Re: Mr. Crosby's Penguins = 4X Champs

Misleading because Crosby is a 2 time champ, the Penguins are 4 time champs.

I'll still hold out hope that the Penguins trade for Nash and we can get some run out of that

Crosby now the only player to win the Stanley Cup, Olympic Gold, World Championship, World Jr. Championship, Hart, Conn Smythe and Art Ross.

All that at age 28. And very likely he gets to add World Cup of Hockey to that list soon. Pretty impressive.

Re: Mr. Crosby's Penguins = 4X Champs

The fact that Crosby only ever won one cup was always going to haunt him when talking about his career. I'm glad that he finally got a second to squash that argument. After these playoffs, I don't know how anybody would say they would rather have Ovechkin over Crosby. The Pens are already the favorites next year. I know that's premature, but hopefully they can keep most of this team together for a few more years.

I still say that Phil Kessel deserved the Conn Smythe, however certain individuals made sure that wasn't going to happen. Don't worry Toronto, Phil hasn't stopped smiling yet.

I really wish that I could make it down to the city tomorrow for the parade. The one in 2009 was huge, and I bet this one is going to be even more crazy.

Shame my LONDON KNIGHTS are the reason the Memorial Cup isn't on that list.

:Out

It's a beloved children's book first and a middling Jim Carrey kids' movie second.

Also, the reason it's misleading is because it implies that Crosby just won his fourth Cup, which he did not. You could say that SUPER MARIO's Penguins did. That would at least be somewhat accurate.

Re: Mr. Crosby's Penguins = 4X Champs

Mr. Lemieux doesn't sound as close to Mr. Popper as Mr. Crosby and explaining that Crosby has 2 cups while the Penguins as a franchise have 4 cups would not fit in a thread title.

And I'm glad someone pointed out the fact that Mr. Popper's Penguins was a book LONG before it was a movie.

Anyway, DRAFT.

sarcasm friend lel

If that wasn't clear I was being silly, surely the line of "Penguins have had long enough to celebrate; their win happened so long ago etc etc etc" should've been the clue imo

also are you guys as excited as I am about RJ Umberger getting bought out tomorrow? :hextall the god

I'm not really sure how the hockey market in Vegas is. Of course, if they win, everyone will be on the bandwagon like in most other cities.
