We Love Goalies With Mustard Yellow Pads
Mkay, we all know the Pens are one messed up team, both finacially and in reality with their play.
Today, Thibault was put on IR, and Caron and Sabourin were called up from the Baby Pens. I've heard about one of the bonuses in Fleur's contract that is in effect after he gets 20-some starts. How much bullshit is it that they're talking about Fleur's near-future being questionable because of that?
Do you think Craig Patrick would really send Fleur down because of his contract? I mean, they barely brought him up, even when it wasn obvious that he should have been here.
Aaaaaagh, it makes me nervous just thinking about it. Anyway, Sabourin is supposed to start tonight, from what I've heard, so it will be interesting to see where that goes.
Just wanted everyone's thoughts on the issue.
UPDATE: Sabourin is staring in goal for the Pens tonight. I'm excited, because I've never seen him play. What is it with us and French-Canadian goalies? Not that I mind, 'cause I aime their accent. : ]
SECOND UPDATE: Fleur's in goal after 20 seconds of the second period.
