Wow, I haven’t witnessed this kind of thing since the North Stars skated Basil McRae and Shane Churla together. Obviously, the Islanders had vengeance on their minds. Unfortunately, the Pens gave them ample opportunity to extract revenge as they spotted the Isles a 6 goal advantage. Having a huge lead affords a team the opportunity t [...]
With all the recent Sidney Crosby concussion talk I thought it would be a good idea to head to Nashville Tennessee and talk with former NHL tough guy Stu Grimson. One of the toughest guys to ever lace them up in the NHL. Stu ended up retiring a bit early at the age of 36 because of post-concussion syndrome suffered after a bout with of all p [...]
Now that Dave Molinari and Ecklund are done telling us exactly what the Penguins will not be doing, let toss out a few things my sources are telling me the Penguins may actually do.
Due to the injuries that the Penguins have sustained this year to Comrie, Staal, Crosby and Malkin, the team has upwards of $8 million to be able to add players [...]
I am so glad that Dan Bylsma is the coach of the Penguins and not Pillsbury Dough Boy Bruce Boudreau. He doesn’t know how to keep his mouth shut when he should. I’m guessing it’s because he is not very intelligent.
We got a good look at Boudreau’s coaching personality on the first 24/7 epidsode. I’m wondering [...]
The Pens and Caps is more than a rivalry, it has become a story of unrequited love. Or obsession. If we have learned nothing else about the Caps this season, especially through the eyes of 24/7, it’s that they have this non-stop focus on the Pens.
During the HBO series, we saw constant references by Caps’ coach Boudreau to the P [...]
I have to admit we are very psyched about the Pittsburgh Steelers Superbowl tomorrow and the game against the Washington Capitals at 12:30PM to kick the day off. It is definitely in the back of our minds that the last time the Steelers won the Superbowl, the Penguins won the Stanley Cup.
Here is the video the Penguins showed at the g [...]
I can’t remember the last time I turned off a game on TV. Last night I was so pissed at this call that I turned the TV off and changed channels. TSN reported this morning that Jordan Staal was suspended for tonight’s game and has since then rescinded that saying now the NHL will not suspend Staal.
I will make this short and sweet [...]
Sorry you have not heard from me in a while. Krundle has sent me on a special assignment doing interviews for PenguinPoop. Having never done and interview, I thought I would do my first interview with probably the best NHL interviewer out there, Dan Moriarty and maybe get some tips along the way. Dan was the host of several NHL shows like N [...]
I’ve never been much for the idiom “Is the glass half empty or full?” The glass is always full, it’s just a matter of what’s in it. When the Pittsburgh Penguins take the ice tonight for the third time in a row without the services of both Sidney Crosby & Evgeni Malkin, Penguins’ GM Ray Shero will have [...]
I told you we had big news, a PenguinPoop exclusive! What seemed like a few select players not participating in the All Star Game is turning into a massive effort to stand behind Crosby’s protest of the league’s weak stand on hits to the head by skipping out on this extremely important league event. Top secret, unnamed sources, [...]
