Olympic Hockey Thoughts… So Far. Plus Crosby vs. Orpik Round 1

pp0176 The big win by the U.S.A. hockey team was much more for them than just a moral victory. The victory put them in first place in the standings and their path to the medal games do not go through Canada, Russia or the 2006 Gold medal winning Sweden team plus they get a first round bye. As for Sidney Crosby, his team dug themselves into a hole th [...]


00ppfront That Canada vs USA game was amazing.  Fun to watch from start to finish.

Jonathan Cheechoo is a Very Viable Option for the Penguins

pp0170 A few days ago former 56 goal scorer and Rocket Richard Trophy winner Jonathan Cheechoo was placed on waivers and the Penguins and every other team in the NHL passed on him and his 3 million dollar salary. Cheechoo cleared waivers and joined Ottawa’s AHL minor league team the Binghamton Senators.  The Pittsburgh Penguins have been searc [...]

Penguins Must Use Olympic Break as Gut-Check Time

00ppfront The Olympic break is here leaving 20 games in the regular season for the Penguins.  Here’s hoping it gives each player plenty of time to look in the mirror and come to the conclusion that ‘I must play better’.   These last three games before the break have definitely been a microcosm of the season.   The players continue to [...]

Gameday Poop: Pittsburgh Penguins vs Nashville Predators – February 14

pp0169 Thanks to the Olympics this afternoon’s Valentine matinee 1PM game against the Nashville Predators is the last Penguin game until March. That being said the Pens should leave it all on the table as they try to take down a Predator team that is barely hanging onto a playoff spot in the western conference. Unfortunately I believe that the [...]

Penguins Inconsistent Play

2010-02-12 21.24.11 The thing that is the most frustrating for me regarding these Pittsburgh Penguins is their inconsistency.   We know this team can compete at a very high level.  We have witnessed it for the last two and half seasons.  Most recently, we watched as the Pens played very well during the first part of this season.  Now, we see it on occasion, abou [...]

Why Wasn’t Ovechkin Suspended?

pp0168 I’m sorry I’m late on this, I’ve been out of town for a week or so. I started writing the “GameDay Poop” today in between shoveling about 3 foot of snow off my roof. I was trying to catch up on what was going on around the NHL when I kept reading about this goal that the Capitals got against the Canadiens that wa [...]

Shero Don’t Be A Hero

With all of the trades around the NHL right now, most by two “Old School” GM’s Brian Burke & Darryl Sutter, it would be easy for Ray Shero to get caught up in the madness and trade away the Penguins future for another shot at winning the Cup. A little Pittsburgh Penguins history lesson might cure him of that and hopefull [...]

Goligoski on Olympic Short List

00ppfront Injuries to the US Olympic Hockey Team’s defensive squad have left one or two open positions on their roster. Defenseman Paul Martin of the New Jersey Devils withdrew yesterday and Mike Komisarek has been injured and did not play yesterday even though US GM Brian Burke thought he would. Komisarek has been out since January 2nd with a sh [...]

Penguins Come From Behind to Beat Sabres

2010-02-01 21.06.22 First off, I want to say nice work to the boys for the nice victory yesterday afternoon.  They played a wonderful game.  It could have ended sooner had they capitalized on one or two more of the many chances they had, but a great game nonetheless. I thought for sure the Penguins would steamroll the momentum from yesterday’s victory into tonig [...]
