Love your passion and opinions B2B but to me this is a Pittsburgh board. I understand if you are from Montana and you chose the Steelers as your team because some loud mouth Dick in school was a Cowboys fan.

If that’s the case keep your hockey affiliations to yourself Or otherwise own the occasional comment - to me this is a Pittsburgh board and I am from the town with the great hockey team. The Caps have become the evil empire with the bullshit they have done over the last few years. I have zero respect for them, their owner or their fans, zero.


It truly is amazing how much dirty shit that franchise has not just condoned but openly supported in the last few years.

Who also didn't say Malba can't post; instead, he said he should own the post (i.e., expect some shit for it).

First of all, I appreciate the people who posted positive things here. Its good to know that some people understand why i'm more interested in posting here, rather than hfboards or some caps fans subreddit.

This is a Steelers fan site, not a Penguins one. Hell this isn't even specifically a Penguins sub forum its a "Pittsburgh Sports" subforum.

If your point is "don't be a pussy about it" then OK, i've been posting in Caps-Pens hockey threads regularly since we squared off in the playoffs in 2009, I know what the deal is and I can take a shot - and have. Most of it I throw in the bucket with game thread ranting and I understand it isn't malicious. Most of it.

Since the timeframe is two years, that means the blindside Letang hit on Johanssen is in play, right?
That moral highground you imagine you are on is mighty slippery, especially since your fellow fans on this here forums were calling for someone to "Bertuzzi" his ass a few days prior, and standing up and flipping off OV on national TV. Or how about the visiting fan tradition of occupying the DC National Portrait Gallery steps and taunting the caps fans on as they leave the game.

Tom Wilson is out of this series as a reminder that at 6'4" with a granite shoulder you can't elevate and "finish" a check through a guy's face that is four inches shorter and twenty pounds lighter. Even if the hits are technically legal by some definition that play was ultimately selfish and stupid and why I am begrudgingly accepting and gritting my teeth through this suspension and why I didn't try to defend it. Unlike a goon like Tom Sestito - who drew a Penguins paycheck last season - Tom Wilson can play hockey and thats what he should be doing.

Malba - I don’t care if you want to post. That’s your right. I find it odd that you want to come onto a Pittsburgh forum as a Caps fan and post in a Penguins thread when we all here hate the Capitals fucking guts.

You are a fool if you think you can convince me that your team is clean . They are scum bags. Tom Wilson is a piece of shit. The fact that he has skills makes him a bigger piece of shit.

Regarding the steps..... your piece of shit owner Teddy is the fuck who has called out and attacked Pens fans and whines and bitches about their overwhelming presence in his building. Those showings are just a big fuck you back to Teddy.

But when in doubt, resort to the cheap shots that they have been doing the last few years. Anything to win.

I don't have a dog in this fight but the anything to win mantra seems to be the approach du jour. With almost everything.

A couple of other points.....

Barry Trotz comparing Guentzel’s check on Carlson to Wilson shows first hand how disingenuous these people are.

Furthermore when Matt Cooke hit Marc Savard 3 or 4 years ago - I was shocked and angry about it and thought he was a scum bag piece of shit for doing it. So did Lemieux and the Penguins- they forced him to change his game which he did. The exact opposite of how these goons have handled their players.
