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 [...]

Selling High: Jordan Staal Heads to Carolina

00ppfront Hockey players are an investment. Safe investors sell high and reduce risking their whole portfolio over one risky investment. Ray Shero is a safe investor and Jordan Staal is no exception. I think Shero did what was best for the long-term future of the Pens. Look at some of the benefits: 1. We actually get something — more than just so [...]

Penguins Update: Malkin the Magnificent

00ppfront Back in 1963 Avis was determined to pry rent-a-car sales away from its giant rival Hertz. So president Robert C. Townsend devised a catchy new slogan to highlight his company’s underdog status—“We’re Only No. 2. We Try Harder.” Penguins superstar Evgeni Malkin can relate. The gifted center has spent virtually his entire career skating in the [...]

Penguins land solid back up goalie in Tomas Vokoun

00ppfront Today the Pittsburgh Penguins acquired goalie Tomas Vokoun from the Washington Capitals in exchange for a 7th round draft pick in this year’s upcoming draft.  Vokoun, 35 and an unrestricted free agent come July 1st then went on to sign a two year deal with the team worth $2 million per season effectively ending the Penguin career of Bre [...]

Could the Penguins lose Malkin in 2 years?

00ppfront The KHL has announced, according to multiple sources, that all returning Russians from the NHL will not count against the salary cap. What will the Penguins do in 2 years if some crazy, stupid, rich KHL owner offers Geno $25 million tax free per season like Jaromir Jagr was making in Omsk? Sure it’s the KHL, but Geno speaks the language [...]
