PHIL KRUNDLE



The first hockey game I watched was on a 12″ black & white TV back in 1975.  It was game 7 of the quarter finals Penguins vs the Islanders.  The Pens lost, but I was ensnared.  I soon started playing hockey in the basement using metal roller skates and nets drawn on the wall. You can still find me playing for 2-3 hockey teams at any given time. 

All you really need to know about me is that I will argue to the death the fact that the Coffee/Recchi for Samuelsson/Tocchet was the worst trade in Penguins history.  They could have had 5 of the top 13 NHL scorers ever on the team for many years.  They would have won way more than just the one Cup the next year.  

I started PenguinPoop along with Reg Dunlop back in January of 2009, mainly because I was unhappy with the direction the Penguins were going less than a year after playing for the Cup.
