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.

    Yeah, but you shoulda heard those Pittsburgers boo Filthadelphia when it came their turn to pick their young gun. Now that was a Bronx cheer!

    Is there a GM cooler than McPhee? How about the ones who have created cup champions over the last 7 years since the lockout? Those guys are pretty cool.

    Oh hey, that’s me in the crowd! There was definitely an “I love you George!” somewhere in with those boos…
