Midseason Review on Penguins Experience

I recently put my 2 cents in the midseason review article on http://www.penguinsexperience.com.
Take a look at the other writers' comments!
The Pittsburgh Penguins season thus far has been very disappointing. The Pens started out hot, having their third best start in franchise history despite losing arguably their top two offensive defensemen in Ryan Whitney and Sergei Gonchar. Pittsburgh even looked like everything we thought they should look like as Eastern Conference Champs. The Pens were winning the close games and able to come back from seemingly unsurmountable odds to win most others.
All this changed, it seemed, overnight. The Pens started losing key players that really didn't show up on the scoreboard, but made a significant difference when it came to game time. Now, I can't blame all the trials and tribulations on the injuries. It seems Pittsburgh has lost its direction as well as the key leadership it once had. The Pens fell behind in the standings, and in the process lost its special spark we all came to love last year and early this year.
Was it the off season acquisitions or the expectations we, as fans, have placed on them to return to the finals again? We may never know. I believe we have the talent as is, but just need the desire again. The best thing for the team that we can provide is dedication and loyalty to our team.
We have been through worse, so, put your chin up and be happy we aren't in Tampa right now.
Let's Go Pens!
