Not on a Monday
Just want to tell my Fleury story.
When we drafted him Pittsburgh was not good. We had the student ruah program and you got the best seat at the civic arena( or whatever they called it then) for 20 bucks with a student ID. Even though you were on the glass you didn't expect them to win. So the teams fanbase was....lacking at the time.
I worked at a coffee shop out in Monroeville mall, and I heard about a Penguin doing autographs from like noon to 3 during my shift.
It was obviously Fleury, and I think he signed 10 autographs that day. I felt bad because no one had any idea who he was. I went up to him and said "Hey man I'm from Gloria jeans coffee, would you like anything? Its on me."
You would have thought I offered him a million dollars.
I've met quite a few PGH sports players, and Fleury by far seemed the most gracious. He accepted a small coffee and insisted he pay. I just shrugged it off and said not to worry.
When he was done he came over and tipped like 10 bucks for the free coffee, thanking me again in his terrible, terrible english.
This isn't a great story I know, but I wanted to share it because I believe it reinforces his integrity and narrative of the article.
Edit: some spelling and auto correct mistakes
I can't wait for the eruption from the crowd when he returns to Pittsburgh. I hope they cheer for an hour.
I am not good with the emotional stuff
Do you have any idea how many people you've made tear up, MAF?
I really have to give San Jose credit for the success of their 'Hockey for the Homeless' program.
If you told me that one day I would see 2 naked homeless guys on this sub, I wouldn't believe you. That day is today.

Hey, Thronton finally scored those 4 goals
Today's Oshie for 5.75M? damn! 38 y/o Oshie for 5.75M? damn...
That's not Chicago
It's cool he'll just develop a skin condition
Fun fact, 8 years is actually 8 years no matter how old you are.
[Dreger]Source says good player from one team is being looked at by other teams. Definitely a possibility of a trade, or maybe not, I'm not really sure.
This is basically as good as his real tweets
Holy shit is my GM a total idiot for considering this.
fuck i was gonna go to sleep tonight
Better actually. I am waiting for the day he says he misses Nonis as GM
fuckin right get home safe
Stay safe brother! And thanks for your service!
Stay safe dude!
And play some ball hockey if you can!
I got a sheet of plexiglass and ordered a franklin net off Amazon! I shoot 100-200 pucks a night if I'm able. Great stress relief!
Panorama of T Mobile Arena
Just got here, view from our parking spot across the street!
Edit: I am an idiot.
what a view
edit: thank you, I am proud to be apart of this crowning achievement for /sub/hockey.
so this is what its like through the eyes of a ref
Mods don't delete. Upvote this to /sub/all.
I'm actually in this photo. I'm the one with really hot chick who's totally real and is just never around because she's so busy with her European medical school training and modeling camps.
This is in the top 5 of the weirdest ways for a HOF career to end.
I am 100% genuine when I say this: I would rather stay in cap hell than have this happen to Marian
What if I told you the sport he loved made him sick...
30 for 30 : Allergic to the Game
Still not weirder than being allergic to your own hockey equipment.
Kind of a modified version of our current alternates, I love the colors and the incorporation of the C
It's polished, I like the stripe, but needlessly jagged in my opinion
I thought they were changing it to
Yeah I agree it maybe too jagged. The problem I faced was that without it, it just like a basic copy of the alternate logo and I didn't want that. So I tried something a little different!
Hey guys, this is my first ever logo design for a sports team I have tried out with the hour I had yesterday! I've obviously have taken some inspiration from the past and put my own little spin to it. Wanted to know your thoughts!
First Yote to get his number in the rafters
I just hope he doesn't sign with another team for one year, only because I don't want to see all the "Blues legend Shane Doan" type of shit
"I could have won somewhere else, but I like the sun, by Shane Doan"
I am dead
ITT: Everyone's indecipherable nicknames for their team's players.
"WOW they exposed JJ but not Chilly?!"
Tough break for Colorado that all their players can't be taken
