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 [...]
When the horn sounded at the end of last nights game, it marked the end of the first half of the season for the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Penguins themselves have less than twenty four hours from the end of the first half last night ’til the start of the second half tonight in Montreal.
Most of their time will be spent traveling up to [...]
Sorry you haven’t heard from any of us over the weekend. We said we were going to party like rock stars and here is a photo blog of the proof. We made promises to certain people not to show all of the pictures, but here is what we were allowed to:
Unfortunately or fortunately for you guys, Art Vandelay is the only writer on PenguinPoop [...]
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 [...]
The Penguins are 6-5-1 through their first twelve games. They have been short of a completely healthy lineup by at least two players and as many as four players throughout the entire beginning stretch. It appeared that Staal was going to play Wednesday in Dallas. Word is now that he suffered an upper body injury at practice today. Neither [...]
