I hope that the Penguins management team had a close eye on the Flyer-Devils series. The Devils put on a clinic as to how to win a playoff series. First and foremost, play hard every shift. The Penguins most certainly did NOT do that. Next is play with a strong defensive posture – know what man you are responsible for and pressure him eve [...]
Over the next week or so each of us here at PenguinPoop will be taking a hard look at whether or not the Pittsburgh Penguins organization needs to make any changes. Second up is Horse.
The most important thing that has to be done if the Penguins are going to win another Stanley Cup is fix Marc Andre Fleury. He shows spurts of brillia [...]
I have been a Penguin fan for 40 years. I have had season tickets for 37 years. Watching the performance of this team in game 3 has to be the low point of the 40 years for me.
A part of being a Penguin fan has always included hating the Flyers. We hated the Flyers because of the stupid and childish things that they did. On Sunday I had to w [...]
The play of the Penguins over the next four games should give us a very good idea of how they might fare in the playoffs. Rangers and Devils at home, Red Wings and Flyers on the road. Three playoff-bound teams and maybe four as the Devils are the hottest team in the NHL. To date the Penguins have not played well against the upper echelon t [...]
I am so glad that Dan Bylsma is the coach of the Penguins and not Pillsbury Dough Boy Bruce Boudreau. He doesn’t know how to keep his mouth shut when he should. I’m guessing it’s because he is not very intelligent.
We got a good look at Boudreau’s coaching personality on the first 24/7 epidsode. I’m wondering [...]
The Penguins have played 45 games this season. They have played two with their full lineup. They have still managed to hold a position near the top of the Eastern Conference. Now that the Front Office has decided to keep us in the dark in regards to Crosby’s status, it looks like it might be a while before the Penguins play their th [...]
I just talked to a media relations director with the Penguins and you will never believe what he told me. He had a conversation with Malkin around the time that my post ‘Is It Time to Consider Trading Malkin?’ hit the internet. Geno told him that after reading it, he realized he was not playing up to potential and was letting t [...]
Is it time to consider trading 71? I never thought that I would be able to consider this as a possibility. After watching the winning streak, the last four games without him. and the two game losing streak with him scoring all three goals, I am open to the thought.
Bylsma likes his team to play North-South hockey. Every player on the tea [...]
The Penguins enjoyed a fine Thanksgiving weekend picking up four points over two inferior opponents. It wasn’t long ago that they were a game under .500 and wondering when their game would come together. Crosby took the reins and the Penguins found themselves where they belong — near the top of the Eastern Conference. A tw [...]
As of November 4th, the Penguins are a .500 hockey team. With the way that they have played so far this season, they are lucky to be at .500. To put the 13 points that they have so far this season in perspective, they are only four points ahead of the New Jersey Devils in the standings, and the Devils have been absolutely horrible. Why ar [...]
