Penguins Claim 2008 1st Round Pick Zack Boychuk from Carolina

Boychuk The Penguins picked 23 year old Carolina Hurricanes Left Winger Zack Boychuk off of waivers today.  Boychuk was a first round 14th overall pick in the 2008 entry draft. Boychuk saw on average 9 minutes playing time in the 16 games he played for Carolina last year and got to play all of 1 game with them this year.  My guess is that Dustin Jeff [...]

Why is the Pittsburgh Penguins Defense so Bad?

Letang The Penguins have new lineups for their first and second power plays. The first power play has the same players on it with one small twist. Evgeni Malkin will be on the point and James Neal will be moving up. The interesting thing is the Penguins second powerplay which practiced with Dustin Jeffrey and Paul Martin at point. The Penguins have [...]

Plug ‘N’ Play Penguins Too Predictable?

Coach Bylsma For the past couple of seasons I’ve watched with increasing alarm as the Penguins have downsized (and defanged) in order to better fit Dan Bylsma’s “damn-the-torpedoes, full-steam-ahead” system. It’s no secret that Bylsma’s approach is predicated on wearing the other team down with a relentless attack. While speed certainly is an asset in tod [...]

NHL Lockout is Over — World War II Parody News Reel

Sid & Geno Another great video by Benstonium  

Bah Humbug

pp0085 Let’s face it folks, we’re all here for basically the same reasons, we love not only the Penguins, but we love hockey.  We love everything about hockey.  We love hockey so much that we shell out inordinate amounts of our hard earned money to attend games, buy jerseys with our favorite player’s names on them, purchase Center [...]

Breaking Down the NHL’s Offer

lockout2 This is by no means the end of the lockout.  This is the starting point for serious negotiations.  Finally.  The league kept saying that it was on the PA to present an offer.  I suspect that the NHL could have presented this offer in June or July and started the season on time, but hoped that the PA would crack.  So don’t go celebrating [...]

Desperate Times for Pittsburgh Penguins

pp0018 So as not to ruin my 15 + year tradition of going to training camp, earlier this week I found myself bundled up in the ice arena at Southpointe at the NHLPA unofficial Pittsburgh practice. Normally, there’d be a table with representatives trying to sell tickets and handing out handy-dandy pocket schedules and a cheat sheet roster of the black [...]

Penguins Free-Agent Plans Go Pfft

Shero It wasn’t supposed to work out this way. Thanks to a pair of bold trades by Penguins GM Ray Shero at the Entry Draft that freed up millions in salary-cap space, the black and gold were supposed to be major players in the Zach Parise-Ryan Suter free-agent sweepstakes. One could almost picture Parise working the give-and-go to perfection with p [...]

Penguins sign warm bodies on first day of lukewarm free agent signings

shero2   The highly anticipated free agent frenzy that was supposed to kick off at 12:01 PM yesterday never materialized as only a couple of “big” names signed with new teams, and like the really hot girls at prom time, the giant names sat back and let the courting begin.  Along with  the millions of dollars being offered to guys li [...]

Are the Penguins a better team today, or excuse me, is anyone using this Staal?

Jordan_Staal2 Coming to Pittsburgh to cover the NHL entry draft this past weekend, most media pundits expected a rather dull, uneventful two days based on the fact that this year’s draft class was mediocre at best.  The Penguins were determined not to let that happen.  Rumors began circulating on Thursday night that Jordan Staal had turned down the P [...]
