Penguins Update: Nothin’ the Maatta with Olli

Last season, right around this time, I posted an article titled, “What’s the Maatta with Olli?” on PenguinPoop. I delved into why, at least to my admittedly imperfect eye, Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta seemed to have regressed since his promising rookie season of 2013-14, when the then 19-year-old rearguard sent our expectations soaring wit [...]

Penguins Update: That’s More Like It

Before you think I’ve taken permanent leave of my senses, let me explain. I decided on the title of this post immediately following the first period of last night’s 5-4 overtime victory over the Rangers, when the Penguins played arguably their finest 20 minutes of the season.

A comment made by Steve Mears and his partner in crime, in the announcers booth, during the Penguins second loss of the season, struck me as odd. The boys in Black-n-Gold squeezed off 4 [...]

Are the Penguins a Team in Transition?

Transition is defined by Merriman-Webster as a “passage from one state, stage, subject or place to another.” In a word, change. The times definitely are a changin’ for our Pittsburgh Penguins. Indeed, just as the natural seasons go through cycles, so do the fortunes of sports teams. Even the mightiest of champions aren’t immune to the ravages [...]
