In this post we asked for your suggestions for statements that would have been hard to believe if they were made on October 1st.
As always, C-Blog delivered. Here are a few examples:
"The Pens will be without first line center Dustin Jeffrey tonight"

"We're better at fighting than scoring goals."
"Some joke from the Islanders is gonna cost his own team 100 grand and the Pens have to sit a player for ten games."
"The Penguins will come up with a slogan arguably worse than 'Defy Ordinary'"
"we will actually care about attending a game at nassau coliseum."
"Derek will start to not hate Mr. Kennedy... Kennedy"
"There will be a 45 minute delay/dance off at our brand new arena because the lights wont come back on."
