Book Review: 100 Things Penguins Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die

100 Things Penguins Fans Should Know When I first learned that fellow PenguinPoop blogger Rick Buker had written a new book about the Pittsburgh Penguins, I must confess that I wondered what he could’ve found to write about. After all, his first book — “Total Penguins” — was 705 pages and covered just about everything you’d ever want to know about the team but was afraid to ask. [...]

It’s awfully crowded at the bottom

  It’s getting close to crunch time now as the first exhibition games are in the books,and opening day draws ever nearer.    Any Penguin fan worth his salt has to be uber excited about the depth that Ray Shero has amassed for the upcoming season.  Since we have all seen how devastating injuries can be to a hockey team over the long haul [...]

Fleury & Letang Octagon Camp Pictures

ppav07 A little over a week ago, PenguinPoop’s Art Vandelay’s bachelor party started out on Pittsburgh’s north shore at the Tilted Kilt and somehow ended up in Montreal.  He got to hang with Marc Andre Fleury and Kris Letang up at an Allan Walsh – Octagon Pro Training Camp at Lower Canada College.   Vandelay was invited to th [...]

Crosby Update: Penguins Patience a Virtue

00ppfront Like all Penguins fans, I anxiously awaited Sidney Crosby’s press conference at the CONSOL Energy Center on September 7. While I hoped to receive news that the iconic Pens’ superstar was given the green light to resume his career, I also harbored a ghastly fear that he might be announcing his retirement. Recent hockey history is littered with [...]

Vandelay’s Coffee Talk with Dan Hinote

Dan Hinote Last week I had the privilege of talking with current assistant coach of the Columbus Blue Jackets Dan Hinote. During Dan’s professional careeer he played for the Colorado Avalanche, St. Louis Blues, and finished his career in Sweden playing for Moodo. When Dan played he was known for his defensive play and efficient penalty killing. T [...]

Slap Shot: Who Were Those Guys?

00ppfront Having cut my hockey teeth during the heyday of goon-squad hockey back in the 1970s, I’ve always had an affinity for the movie Slap Shot. With nothing in particular to do (a mind is a terrible thing to waste), I decided to delve into the true identities of some of the movie’s more colorful characters. Of course, everyone knows about the Hanso [...]

Penguins History: Demolition Durby

pp0426 As a young hockey fan, I’ll never forget the day in January of 1974 that the Penguins acquired tough guys Steve Durbano and Bob “Battleship” Kelly from St. Louis. At the time of the trade the Pens were languishing in next-to-last place. Worse yet, they were a woefully timid team—the 98-pound weaklings of the NHL. That all changed with the arr [...]

Penguins History: Kjell Game

pp0429 Following nine seasons in his native Sweden, Kjell Samuelsson ventured across the pond to join the New York Rangers in 1985-86. Standing 6’6” and weighing 235 pounds, the 27-year-old defenseman was considered an oddity—a foreign-born player of immense proportions. After seeing limited duty for the Blueshirts, Samuelsson was dealt to Philadelp [...]

Penguins Free-Agent Update: Rupp Leaves Big Hole

00ppfront Although Mike Rupp’s departure didn’t receive much fanfare, losing the big forward to the Rangers creates an even bigger hole in the Penguins’ lineup. In an era when classic “beat ‘em in the alley” power forwards such as Gary Roberts and Rick Tocchet have gone the way of the dodo, Rupp is indeed a rare bird. Tough enough to tangle with opposi [...]
