The Pens are STILL on very thin ice. The state is now involved and I fear that if they do not start working something out soon, then the Pens are history. To an area that has already lost so much business and residents, this is huge.
It is obvious that they want to stay in Pittsburgh (seeing as what Kansas city is willing to offer), but time is running out.
A rehab would be nice but too bad that isn't an option. The lease on building is over next season which means they need a completely new arena. Too bad because a rehab would definatally be more of a definate thing.

Further proves my theory that "hockey" = "soccer on ice"
except the hooligans are both on the ice and in the stands
Diving isn't quite as bad in hockey as it is in soccer. Remember that hockey is a contact sport. So there's less there to fake. Soccer you're not able to hit anyone, so it's easier to dive. A hockey player can't dive when he gets laid out at center ice by a clean hit.
Though it's a fine line. They call everything now to try and get rid of the clutching and grabbing that was rampant before the lock out. But with that comes more diving. It's not perfect.
What I want to see happen is the instigator rule get removed. That rule only protects cheap shot artists. If someone gets taken out by a blatant knee he deserves to get his ass whooped.
