The season ended a little too soon for our liking. One day the Hawks and the Pens will battle head-to-head for the Stanley Cup, one day... We don't really want to talk about it, you know what happened.
Daddy Shero had been busy in the off-season, which reminded us why we love this team. The acquisition of Paul Martin took the hotness factor down but Zbynek Michalek brought it back up.
This off-season has been way too long. Way too long. We've been spoiled with a long and prosperous run into the playoff the two seasons proir so having almost a whole summer off is strange.
We're more than excited for this new season to start for the Penguins. There are so many unanswered questions that we've got. Such as: Will Eric Tangradi be the saving winger that the Pens need? Can Sidney Crosby reach fifty-plus goals again? Is this the break-out season for one of the former rookies?
So many to answer.

Because we're biased as all hell. And because we all have a husband who is totally gorgeous and really talented and of course they play for the Penguins. And who doesn't like a team that makes the playoffs and wins the Cup? They're worth the pain of getting a 10.
