Penguins Update: Patsies No More

Rail-thin and timid as a kid, I often was the target of a neighborhood bully named Tommy S (I’ll withhold his last name). Beefier by far and a year or two older, he picked on me mercilessly, often causing me to retreat to the safety of my bedroom. During those moments of isolation and despair I became fixated on those old Dynamic Tension ads [...]

One Center, Two Center, Three Center, Four…If We Want to Three-Peat, We Need More!

We are in day seven of free agency. I am reminded that NHL free agency is not a 100-yard sprint race but a very long and strenuous 26-mile marathon.

Penguins Update: Centers of Attention

Does Nail Yakupov Make Sense for the Penguins?

Note: A couple of hours after I posted this article, Yakupov signed a one-year deal with the Colorado Avalanche for $875,000. Talk about timing! Now that the first hectic days of free-agent season have passed, we’ve settled into the dog days of summer, when activity on the hockey front is scarce as a snowball floating down the Mon. Penguins G [...]

A View From Up North!

Can you imagine my shock when I received an e-mail from Mr. Buker, asking me if I would like to write an article or two for PenguinPoop? My first reaction was to check the date on my calendar and see if it was April 1st! No such luck. The request was real. Now what do I do? Aside from commenting on PP, I’ve never written a thing! I do not twe [...]
