Penguins Update: Bottom-Six Blues

I was watching a video last night about the Pittsburgh Steelers and their great Super Bowl teams from the ‘70s. As I noted all of the legendary players on those teams—Franco Harris, ‘Mean’ Joe Greene, Terry Bradshaw and Jack Lambert, to name a few—it occurred to me that virtually everyone was a contributor. I began mentally comparing them to [...]

Can the Penguins be Fixed?

I’ll open this post with a statement worthy of Captain Obvious. Our Penguins are in trouble. They’ve lost three in a row, four out of five, and eight of their last 13.

I thought I’d steal a page from DeCesare and dispense with a traditional game summary, instead giving some overall impressio [...]

Penguins in Search of Identity

Shortly after the Penguins were brushed aside in round one of the 2015 playoffs, general manager Jim Rutherford formulated a plan. His intent…remake his team in the image of the Chicago Blackhawks, a speedy, ultra-skilled club that captured the Stanley Cup by rolling four productive lines. Wasting little time, Rutherford acquired Phil Kessel [...]
