Penguins A Cup Contender

pp0597 After watching the Penguins clinch their tenth-consecutive playoff berth with a 5-0 drubbing of the New York Islanders on Saturday, I couldn’t help but reflect on last year. When we squeaked past a woeful Buffalo Sabres squad on the final day of the regular season to literally crawl into the playoffs on our belly. Remember? Now we enter the [...]

Penguins Deal Scuderi to Blackhawks for Daley

pp0561 I remember smiling the day I learned that former GM Ray Shero had signed ex-Penguin Rob Scuderi to a free-agent deal back in the summer of 2013. Broadly. What wasn’t to like? “Scuds” had served as the defensive anchor on another Cup winner—this time in Los Angeles—while mentoring talented young Drew Doughty. I figured Shero had found the per [...]

It made me wistful for the time when injuries forced the Penguins to dress some of their kids. Remember how it f [...]

Penguins Update: Niskanen’s Dangerfield Days Are Over

pp0409 Perform a quick scan of Pittsburgh Penguins statistics and you’ll notice a surprising number. Perched atop the list in plus/minus rating is Matt Niskanen. The same Matt Niskanen who most experts felt would be dealt over the past summer to clear salary cap space. If ever there was a player who epitomized the mantra of the late comedian Rodney [...]

Penguins Update: No To-Morrow for Brenden

Morrow Penguins With all due respect to Jarome Iginla, Jussi Jokinen, and Douglas Murray, my favorite Penguins acquisition at the 2013 trade deadline was Brenden Morrow. Call me old school, but ever since “Scary” Gary Roberts left the ‘Burgh during the summer of 2008 I’ve felt the Pens have lacked a certain element. Call it “functional snarl,” if you will. I [...]
