The USA has won the Hockey Gold medal at the Olympics only twice in 90 years. Both times the USA won, the year ended in zero, as a matter of fact they won the last two times the Winter Olympics were held on a year ending with a Zero. Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik was named after the coach of the 1980 USA Hockey team Herb Brooks. Put it al [...]
Here’s one for the “Own the Podium” project! Or shall I say “Own the Imodium” project!
I’ve had enough of the entitlement and arrogance that the Canadian fans AND players have exhibited! Did anyone else notice how Martin Brodeur showed up a day before Canada’s first game with freshly frosted tips a [...]
I really enjoy watching Olympic hockey. As a hockey fan, I don’t know how you couldn’t. The games are fast-paced, the skill level is awesome, the energy level is incredible. Add the patriotism and you get a tremendous tournament.
Do these games benefit the NHL? Probably not much. Has NBC given hockey maximum exposure? No [...]
As the games go on so do the lemmings who think this Olympic hockey is the best there is… it isn’t.
For those that can’t remember when the NHL took their momentum break from playing 4 games a week… there were six teams (Flyers, Boston, Montreal, Tampa Bay, NY Rangers, and Atlanta) battling for three playoff spot [...]
The big win by the U.S.A. hockey team was much more for them than just a moral victory. The victory put them in first place in the standings and their path to the medal games do not go through Canada, Russia or the 2006 Gold medal winning Sweden team plus they get a first round bye. As for Sidney Crosby, his team dug themselves into a hole th [...]
A few days ago former 56 goal scorer and Rocket Richard Trophy winner Jonathan Cheechoo was placed on waivers and the Penguins and every other team in the NHL passed on him and his 3 million dollar salary. Cheechoo cleared waivers and joined Ottawa’s AHL minor league team the Binghamton Senators. The Pittsburgh Penguins have been searc [...]
The Olympic break is here leaving 20 games in the regular season for the Penguins. Here’s hoping it gives each player plenty of time to look in the mirror and come to the conclusion that ‘I must play better’. These last three games before the break have definitely been a microcosm of the season. The players continue to [...]
Thanks to the Olympics this afternoon’s Valentine matinee 1PM game against the Nashville Predators is the last Penguin game until March. That being said the Pens should leave it all on the table as they try to take down a Predator team that is barely hanging onto a playoff spot in the western conference. Unfortunately I believe that the [...]
The thing that is the most frustrating for me regarding these Pittsburgh Penguins is their inconsistency. We know this team can compete at a very high level. We have witnessed it for the last two and half seasons. Most recently, we watched as the Pens played very well during the first part of this season. Now, we see it on occasion, abou [...]
