How the hell is it November already? Lost in the Halloween buzz, Crosby will not be playing out west. [ Trib ]
"It's not just an automatic thing to go through hitting," Crosby said. "It's a big step, and I just want to make sure I get through that well. That's the most important thing, however long it takes. I just want to make sure it goes well, and I'm giving myself the best chance to make sure I can handle it."
Not much else going on with all that shit. Or with any other shit for that matter.
After the jump, a chance to make fun of Trevor Gillies, Georges Laraque's costume, other stuff...
I am a Pens fan from PA who has been living in CA for a few years. This summer I went to a San Francisco Giants game when the Bucs were in town (we won 9-2). As I walked back to my car, my brother and I saw something on the windshield. Someone left me a note of hate for Crosby. I guess they saw my Pens bumper sticker and wanted to let me know what they thought about our captain. Didn't even spell his name right. And who carries around post-its with them at all times?! Crosby hate is real and really is everywhere. I attached a pic of the note. - Stacey

Over the weekend, the Internet exploded as word started to spread about an NHL realignment plan that is "gaining steam." Here's what the divisions would look like:
Some tidbits about the schedule:
-Teams would play home-and-homes with teams outside their division, with the remaining being played within the division. No clue how the numbers break down on this, but it seems like 5 games a year against divisional opponents sounds about right. With those home-and-homes, teams would play either 44 or 46 games against non-divisional teams. That leaves basically half the schedule open to divisional games. Compare that to the 24 divisional games the Pens see every year in the current alignment.
-The playoff seeding will return to how it was in the old days (before 1993-94), with the top 4 teams in each division seeded 1 to 4 and pairing down on a collision course with the other division in the Conference Finals. There is some dust being kicked up about this new playoff format, as teams in 8-team divisions feel like it's unfair. It'll be unfair in years that everyone is good. It'll be fair in the years when you get to pound on one extra team every year. Moot point.

Mark Madden, the self-proclaimed king of sports radio in Pittsburgh, took Evgeni Malkin to task via Twitter this weekend. And then, when challenged about it, he did the best thing ever. He retired from Twitter.
The bizarre timeline and the fall of the super genius next.
