Over the years the Penguins, a team known for their great locker room chemistry, have gotten by without great line chemistry on the ice. Sidney Crosby, not unlike Mario Lemieux in his heyday, has seen players come and go on his line. Sometimes players don’t last 60 minutes as his winger. Evgeni Malkin on the other hand has found the per [...]
There is one thing that will make a player a fan favorite in Pittsburgh and that is shooting the puck. Penguins fans have stood in the stands and screamed “shoot the puck” for ages, even during warm-ups. James Neal & Matt Niskanen just one year away from being traded from the Dallas Stars are leading the Pittsburgh Penguins i [...]
There is a certain type of Pittsburgh Penguins fan that a few of us on PenguinPoop that have followed the Pens since the ’70′s discuss all the time. You probably are more familiar with the Steelers version of the fan, the ones that always think the backup QB is the one that should be playing.

It was originally thought that James Neal was brought in to be the much needed big winger for Crosby, but as it worked out Neal, Malkin & Chris Kunitz are put [...]
The number one goal scoring left winger in the NHL, James Neal is currently without a spot on the NHL All-Star Game roster and barring injury to a player currently on the roster he’ll be sitting at home watching the game on TV.
The NHL invites 24 total players who play offense onto their All-Star squad. Three of which are voted in by t [...]
If your the best hockey player on the planet the whole idea of re-imagining your game probably sounds like a poor idea at best.

Three games back from his 10 1/2 mo [...]
What if we tried to make Pittsburgh not look stupid & petty tonight for the HBO 24/7 camera’s and national TV? Lemieux once got a standing ovation in Philadelphia when he showed up.
