I had the luck of having a phone conversation with NHL on the Fly’s analyst Craig Button yesterday right after the Penguins traded for Alexei Kovalev. I say luck because this time of year with all the trades going on Craig is an extremely busy person being that he also writes for ESPN Insider and NHL.com. Craig’s father Jack wa [...]
The Penguins today reacquired Alexi Kovalev today from the Ottawa Senators for a conditional 7th round pick in the 2011 entry draft. The pick could change to a 6th round one if the Penguins advance beyond the first round of this year’s playoffs and if Kovalev plays in [...]
*Feb 24th, 2011: The Penguins have just picked up Alexei Kovalev for a 7th round draft pick. The big question now is whether Craig Adams will give up his number so we can bring back the AK27.
There is a lot of talk right now about the Pens having interest in obtaining the services of Alexei Kovalev. Many sources report this as a possibilit [...]

Lisa Bowes is known through out Canada as the woman who broke barriers by becoming the first woman to do play-by-play for the National Women’s Hockey League, she is also know for the job she did as host/reporter of Women’s Hockey for CTV at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics a [...]
Alex Goligoski has been traded to the Dallas Stars for winger James Neal & defenseman Matt Niskanen. This will probably be considered an immediate coo for Penguins GM Ray Shero, the proof will be in how Goligoski performs in the future.
The Penguins new winger James Neal has put up some descent offensive numbers for his first three y [...]
Today, Ray Shero pulled off another trade that is being touted by Dallas fans as highway robbery. The Penguins sent crowd favorite defenseman, Alex Goligoski to the Dallas Stars for Left Winger, James Neal and Defenseman, Matt Niskanen. Stars’ fans are already crying that they wouldn’t have taken Goligoski straight up for Neal [...]
With Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin out, you may think the Penguins GM Ray Shero should waive the white flag and live to fight another day. I’m willing to bet there is a locker room full of Penguins that would not agree with this sentiment. I also believe Shero still has a few cards left up his sleeve.
For the right price, just about [...]
Within the past week, three possible players the Penguins may have been targeting at the trade deadline have been plucked by other clubs, and in all three instances, the price was fairly low. The least likely of the three to be acquired by the Penguins was Mike Fisher as he was traded from Ottawa to Nashville last week, but was there really [...]
It’s not often you get to talk to a guy who has scored over 70 goals in one season in the NHL, after all there are only eight that have accomplished that feat. It is not often you get to talk to a guy who has scored at least 150 points in one season in the NHL, only 5 have done that. Recently I caught up with the great Bernie Nicholls. [...]
The Wheeling Nailers have lost their last three games after winning 9 out of 10. JLPens, from our PenguinPoop Johnstown office has filed this report:

of the organization. They now [...]
