Playoff Facial Hair (...and lack thereof)

The Saint's lightly peppered face has been the subject of much discussion here amongst the Friends of The Show. So far, it looks like most of you are giving Sid's (haha) "beard" a big thumbs down. Leave it to Dave Molinari of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette to go get the full story on which Pens are capable of growing face forests and which Pens need magnifying glasses to prove that there are in fact whiskers on their chins:
For every guy like Ryan Whitney, Ryan Malone or Max Talbot -- who modestly claims to grow the world's finest playoff beard -- in the Penguins' locker room, there is a Marc-Andre Fleury, Sidney Crosby or Kris Letang.

Members of the first group probably could morph from clean-shaven to a full-fledged lumberjack look if they'd devote a long weekend to it; those in the latter look as if they could be cleaned up with nothing more than a soapy washcloth and some vigorous rubbing.
HAHAHA! I, too, thought Sid's face looked a bit more dirty than hairy! Here's a good closeup shot of Sid's fuzzy work in progress:

And here's Mad Max and Bugsy
shown presumably after forgetting their respective morning shaves in two separate pictures taken by Friend of The Show Lexie101 just before the end of the regular season:

Maybe HIS nickname should be Bugsy. I mean, MY GOD - he looks like a mobster! ;)

I bet the real Bugsy is one hairy dude, LOL!

Big thank yous go out to Friends of The Show Allison Y. for the link to the article and Lexie101 for the awesome pictures. :)
