Before General Manager George McPhee even had the chance to select Filip Forsberg with the 11th overall pick of the 2012 NHL Draft, he was met by a loud round of boos by Pittsburgh Penguins fans. Fortunately, a noticeably irritated GMGM brought the sass, and unleashed his fury on the crowd.

“Thank you, Pittsburgh. We’re touched. ::points to heart:: Thank you.”
With Sidney Crosby’s recent injury woes and Alex Ovechkin’s goal production beginning to wane, the Caps/Penguins rivalry has certainly lost some of its steam. It’s nice to know however, that both cities still hate each other.
Is there a GM cooler in the league than McPhee?
I think not.
