Save Empty Netters

500EMPTYNETTERS In case you haven’t heard by now, a Pens fan favorite is in trouble.  Late Thursday night, Seth Rorabaugh made the announcement via Twitter that the future of his Empty Netters blog is in jeopardy.  While he did not reveal the reason, he did say that he has a meeting with some of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette management on Monday about the futu [...]

The Penguins Powerplay Stinks… Don’t Change it.

Dan Bylsma Head Coach Dan Bylsma has taken a seriously innovative step in creating a very different type of powerplay here in Pittsburgh and even though the numbers are not there right now, if you give it time, it could become one of the best ever. The Pittsburgh powerplay has a problem like no other in the NHL.  How do you find space for two of the lea [...]

Are the Pittsburgh Penguins a .500 Hockey Team?

photo_image9-smallest As of November 4th, the Penguins are a .500 hockey team.  With the way that they have played so far this season, they are lucky to be at .500.  To put the 13 points that they have so far this season in perspective, they are only four points ahead of the New Jersey Devils in the standings, and the Devils have been absolutely horrible.  Why ar [...]

The Great Pittsburgh Penguins Goaltender Controversy Debate

Fleury & Johnson There is an interesting thing going on in the NHL right now. Teams like Chicago and Montreal are letting go the goaltenders that made their post seasons successful. First Montreal traded away Jaroslav Halak for two minor leaguers, Halak being the goaltender who not only beat the Penguins in game seven of the playoffs last season, he also ende [...]

The Penguins Will Get Better

00ppfront The Penguins are 6-5-1 through their first twelve games.  They have been short of a completely healthy lineup by at least two players and as many as four players throughout the entire beginning stretch.  It appeared that Staal was going to play Wednesday in Dallas.  Word is now that he suffered an upper body injury at practice today.  Neither [...]

Penguins Lose To Lighting: Must Be the Florida Sunshine Blues

00ppfront The way the first period was going, I thought the Pens might score like 10 goals in this game.  Unfortunately, I thought Tampa Bay might score 6 or 7.  The way Pens moved the puck on their first power play was magical.  I could have watched that all night.  On the other hand, Fleury seemed to be very shaky.  He let in the first shot he faced, [...]

The NHL’s Eastern Conference

NHL Eastern Conference logo As we near the end of the first month of the season, let’s take a look at the Eastern Conference.  Fifteen teams, eight will make the playoffs and seven will not.  You only have to look back to last year to see the importance of every point.  The Flyers got into the playoffs on their last game of the season by winning a shootout.  Then [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins: Breaking Curses Since 2010

00ppfront How about those Pens?!?!  Breaking the Consol and power play curses in the same weekend!  Just a few quick thoughts: I’m glad to see that the league did the right think and revoked Letang’s 5 minute major and game misconduct.  This means that he will have a clean slate and that his next violation of the hit to head rule will not [...]
