If there is a worse way for a professional sport to handle distribution of tickets I’m sure the NHL will be the first ones to adopt it. The Winter Classic game could be about the garnering of new fans, but instead the NHL is distancing itself from the fan base it already has.
I’m going to start with Season Ticket Holders.I will gi [...]
A few of us PenguinPoop writers are in yet another commercial for 93.7 the Fan, once again STH35, Champ Kind Reg Dunlop and I are in a commercial for Seibel and Starkey. Big thanks to PenguinSteve-O, a frequenter of our blog who is also in the commercial, for finding and sending this to us.
After this article was written, both Philip Samuelsson and Brandon Saad were cut from the US roster on the last day of cuts.
They say it’s the most wonderful time of the year, and if you are a hockey fan like me, it certainly is. The NHL season is in full swing, the Penguins are near the top of the entire NHL in points, the Winter C [...]

Many NHL fans are unhappy with the Pittsburgh Penguins getting their second Winter Classic game while their team hasn’t even played one. Bettman hoping for a ratings bonanza is clamor [...]

When the Penguins traded defenseman Ryan Whitney to the Ducks for Chris Kunitz around the trading deadline of the 2008/09 season everyone was proclaiming that Sidney Crosby will finally have a solid winger.

Okay, let’s see, the Penguins have won 10 games in a row, they are now first overall in the Eastern conference, they are getting balanced scoring from all lines lately, Sidney Crosby has somewhere close to like 100 points during those 10 games, they have done this with a slightly banged up Evgeni Malkin who has missed the past couple [...]
