With the conclussion of the Stanley Cup Finals this past week. PenguinPoop readers turn their attention to the NHL hockey draft followed by free agency on July 1st. I was extremely fortunate to be able to talk to Jay Grossman Presdient of the Puck Agency LLC. Some of the http://www.puckagency.com/ clients are Ilya Kovalchuk, Vezina trophy c [...]
Dan Bylsma won a well deserved Jack Adams award for “Coach of the Year”. Bylsma is the first Penguins coach to win the award. This is the video of his acceptance speech.
We had an idea Bylsma was going to win the award back in March, you can read about it here: Penguins Coach Bylsma Deserves Jack Adams Award Consideration
Well, here we are…the first day of the Stanley Cup Finals. It doesn’t matter what team you’re a fan of, there’s some excitement that comes as a hockey fan at this point in the playoffs. I think it has to do with a month and a half of waiting and anticipation finally coming down to the final two teams. I think it has [...]
Time to review my round 2 picks and look at my predictions for the Conference Finals. I went 75% again. Kudos again to the West for playing along! And, in the East, well…apparently no one told Tampa that they weren’t supposed to still be in the game.
Again, not a whole lot for me to say about how things went in the West. I [...]
It’s time to take a look back at my own predictions and see how I did. And, since I went 6-2, I have a little tweaking to do for the second round.
I know that we’re five days until the second round, but this will have to do given that it started the day after the Pens season ended. I needed a couple of days to get out of that pos [...]
Another season, another heck of a ride. It’s not the ride we feared we were in for back in October. It’s not the ride we were thrilled to be on in November. It’s not the one that punched us in the gut both in early January and again in February. The roller coaster that we rode with this team from mid February until last [...]

Backed by the shutout goaltending of 41-year-old marvel Dwayne Roloson and a timely tally by Sean Bergenheim, the Lightning staved off a late charge by the Penguins to take Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals set 1-0.
It was playoff hockey at its finest as the rivals treated the partisan crowd of 18,507 at CONSOL Energy Center to a [...]
I know it’s probably considered heresy in these parts to criticize Penguins coach Dan Bylsma. After all, the guy won a Stanley Cup in his first season behind the bench. He’s already won more playoff games than any other skipper in franchise history. A terrific motivator, he richly deserves the Jack Adams Trophy for keeping the team on course [...]
Tonight the Penguins need to hit somebody. I’m not talking the soft checks the Pens have been throwing the last two games. I’m talking the Brooks Orpik type teeth rattling check he threw at Steven Stamkos the first game. For the last two games the Penguins have let Tampa skate in and around the net without consequences. It’s [...]
