Penguins Update: The Sexy Seven

Who’s going to play third-line center? It’s been the hot-button topic for Penguins fans. Liable to be all summer, too, or at least until Pens GM Jim Rutherford makes a move. Last week we looked at some internal candidates. Today we’ll glance at potential trade options, or at least the ones who’ve churned through the rumor mill. For lack of a [...]

All my bags are packed. I’m ready to go. I’m standin’ here outside your door. I hate to wake you up to say goodbye.

I remember the incident like it was yesterday. It was Tuesday, May 5, 1992. Game Two of the Patrick Division Finals. Fresh off a rousing come-from-behind conquest of Washington in the opening round of the playoffs, the Penguins had toppled the Rangers—Presidents’ Trophy winners—in Game One at Madison Square Garden.
