At the end of the season the Pittsburgh Penguins will have 5 of the seven defensemen currently on the roster go to free agency unless Ray Shero starts signing them. Along with the biggest salary, Sergei Gonchar is the biggest question mark in the bunch. Shero and Gonchar’s agent JP Barry (you know, the guy who snuck Evgeni Malkin out of [...]
First off, I hope everyone had a nice holiday. Apparently, the Pens hadn’t gotten the holiday gift giving spirit out of their systems yet. They were giving away pucks like Santa gives away toys. All of this on a night when the Pens were well rested and the Leafs had played the night before.
The Pens seem unable to defend agai [...]
Since the day they removed Mike Lange from the duties of announcing the TV games on FSN a few disgruntled Penguin fans have been up in arms about the hiring of Paul Steigerwald and Bob Errey. “The Official Fire Paul Steigerwald and Bob Errey Movement” has had an online petition for a couple years to try to get rid of Steigy and Er [...]
Even though the powerplay was 0-5 against Buffalo, I like the new setup. The puck movement is much better. I’ve really felt all along that Crosby and Malkin had to be on opposite sides of the ice. Now that is the case. When Gonchar has the puck at center point, he will have three great options, and the penalty killers can only take [...]
I found this interesting bit of information on Brian Metzer’s blog on the Hockey Buzz website.

People are starting to take notice of young Alex Goligoski’s Paul Coffee like abilities and why not, this kid is proving to be #1. Goligoski was not one of the twelve 12 defensemen invited to the USA Olympic camp, (Tom Gilbert, Tim Gleason, Ron Hainsey, Erik Johnson, Jack Johnson, Mike Komisarek, Paul Martin, Brooks Orpik, Brian Rafalsk [...]
In about 2 weeks, most countries will be announcing their rosters for the 2010 Winter Olympics, and the early word is that there could be as many as seven Penguins picked to play. For Canada, Sid is a lock, Fleury has certainly played his way onto the squad, and Jordan Staal is a long shot. For Russia, Malkin and Gonchar are definites, and [...]
If you scroll down the page a bit, you will see a post titled “When is Fleury Going to Win a Game?”. Well, tonight was the night. Fleury played awesome. He was the primary reason the Pens got out of this game with a win.
To their credit, the Flyers came out flying tonight. They looked like a different team. Maybe it was the fa [...]
There is a rumor going around the internet from a so called reliable source that Flyers Jeff Carter Slept with Scotty Hartnell’s wife and that is the reason that their locker room is split. We are here to set the record straight, it was not Hartnell’s wife, apparently Hartnell & his wife look the same from the back side.
The P [...]
