The death of the Elmo balloon and the curse that came with it

The legend of the Elmo balloon is that of mystery. We never got the official story, but legend has it that the Elmo balloon showed up around the time Bylsma took over and stayed until the Pens won the Cup. It was seen at Consol, as well, but could the above picture mean the death of Elmo has cursed the Penguins?  A friend sent this to us last week.

God help us all.
