This is going back a few years, but when Mario Lemieux first broke into the league in 1984 the Penguins brought up 28 year old minor league winger Warren Young who went on to have a career high 40 goals then unceremoniously left for Detroit and a large paycheck.

I have a novel idea for the re-use of the Civic Arena. Have the Pittsburgh Penguins play there.
I apologize for not succumbing to the Penguins forcing the “there is not a bad seat in the new Consol Energy Center” down my throat, but I waited until I actually saw a game there to make sure my assumption was true. You can dress the p [...]
I have to say, this is as excited as I have been to go and watch a pre-season hockey game. The thrill of witnessing live hockey (not practice) in the new digs, just the fact that hockey is back and the added intrigue of new additions to the line-up make for a potentially exciting night. And, let’s not forget, the opponent is the the d [...]
When the Penguins signed center Mike Comrie two weeks ago I questioned if maybe Jordan Staal‘s injury was a little worse than they’ve been letting out. Training camp opens tomorrow and the Penguins today announced that Staal will not be starting the regular season with the Penguins and that he would be returning to the lineup aro [...]
A little over a week until training camp starts and Penguin GM Ray Shero is still fine tuning the Penguins roster. Today he signed center journeyman Mike Comrie to a one year deal. While PenguinPoop writer Reg Dunlop and I tried all day to post this from our none functioning phones we had plenty of time to debate the why this signing took pla [...]
The Pittsburgh Penguins signed Winger tough guy Arron Asham to a one year contract for 700 thousand. 5′ 11″ 205pd Asham played the last two seasons for the Philadelphia Flyers. Asham is more known for his physical style play than his scoring, but can still put the puck in the net, he netted 10 goals last season.
This changes t [...]
I got my opportunity to go down and see the new home of the Pittsburgh Penguins. I have to say, it was, in fact, very impressive.
This is the view from lower Center Avenue. The is the view from upper Center Avenue.
Once I got past the interactive Penguins “hall of fame”, I headed up to the main concourse.
Here the fans ca [...]
As if TV wasn’t bad enough already! When we were asked if we wanted to be in a bunch of the new commercials for “93.7 the Fan” sports talk radio, we had no idea they meant putting our ugly mugs on TV. Four PenguinPoop writers can be seen in the below commercial, as usual we are not going to tell you which ones we are in the [...]
I want to give big props to Max Talbot for last week on 105.9 The X, for addressing the white elephant in the room that no one wanted to talk about. When “Mad Max” was asked about Ovechkin, he did not hold back calling him “Douche”, which is what every “PenguinPoop” reader already knew.
Let’s face it, [...]
