Penguins Update: Missing Our Veteran Leaders

This is the last time I’ll write about departed veterans like Matt Cullen, Ron Hainsey and Chris Kunitz. I promise. They’ve moved on and so must we. I get it. Honest, I do. Except we miss ‘em. Big time. Perhaps not so much for what they contributed on the ice, which was considerable, as for what they provided behind the scenes and in the loc [...]

Penguins Update: The Back-to-Back Games Conspiracy

During a recent lull at work, I decided to look up the Penguins’ schedule on line. As I gazed at the computer screen, I was struck by the yawning gaps in our upcoming slate. After a grueling opening month that culminated in a torturous five-game western road trip, we’re off four out of five days next week, abruptly followed by yet another in [...]

Penguins Update: Nothin’ the Maatta with Olli

Last season, right around this time, I posted an article titled, “What’s the Maatta with Olli?” on PenguinPoop. I delved into why, at least to my admittedly imperfect eye, Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta seemed to have regressed since his promising rookie season of 2013-14, when the then 19-year-old rearguard sent our expectations soaring wit [...]

During those moments of isolation and despair I became fixated on those old Dynamic Tension ads [...]

Can you imagine my shock when I received an e-mail from Mr. Buker, asking me if I would like to write an article or two for PenguinPoop? My first reaction was to check the date on my calendar and see if it was April 1st! No such luck. The request was real. Now what do I do? Aside from commenting on PP, I’ve never written a thing! I do not twe [...]

Penguins Update: The Recchin’ Ball Crashes the Hall

When the Penguins took Mark Recchi in the fourth round of 1988 Entry Draft, it was hardly a lock he’d make the team, let alone go on to a Hall-of-Fame career. Despite scoring 61 goals during his final season of junior hockey, he was passed over by the 21 NHL teams—including the Pens—not once, but three times. Too small, the scouts whispered.
