End of an Era: Penguins Fire GM Ray Shero, not Coach Bylsma

pp0485 Ray Shero who has looked like a trading genius at times, a Stanley Cup winner and 2013 GM of the year was done in by his abysmal job with the draft, player development and the inability to secure ‘A’ list rental players to contracts. In Ray Shero’s 8 years of drafting players only 3 have played over a hundred games in the NH [...]

Rangers Give Penguins the Boot

pp0484 While watching the Penguins fall to the Rangers in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Tuesday night my friend and boss, Dave Wright, turned to me and said, “The Pens are missing something, aren’t they?” Truer words were never spoken. It wasn’t that our boys didn’t give their all. Unlike Games 5 and 6, when the Pens’ battle level w [...]

Playoff Penguins Show True Colors

pp0479 At the end of each episode of the old Lone Ranger TV show someone would invariably ask, “Who was that masked man?” Following the Penguins’ 2-0 triumph over the Rangers in Game 3 on Monday night, local fans could be excused for asking, “Who are those guys wearing the black and gold?” After struggling to hold leads during their first-round seri [...]

Penguins Nearly Perfect in 3-0 Win

pp0477 There are so many positives to draw from the Penguins’ 3-0 whitewash of the New York Rangers in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Semifinals series I scarcely know where to begin. Indeed, following an undisciplined start on Sunday night that saw the black and gold whistled for three minor penalties in seven minutes, the Pens shifted into top [...]

Are the Penguins Jelling at the Right Time?

pp0461 Maybe it’s too early to ponder that question. There are a lot more games to be won before the Penguins can dream of hoisting the Stanley Cup. Yet there are reasons to believe. Remember Game 3, when the Pens were reeling from an overtime loss and Columbus had them in an early hole? Instead of folding like a cheap suit, our boys stung the Blue [...]

Penguins Roll Past Columbus 3-1

pp0459 Through the first four games of their opening-round series with Columbus—and ever since the Olympic break—the Penguins have looked like a team in search of an identity. They may have found one on Saturday night. Called out by coach Dan Bylsma for a less-than-stellar effort in Game 4 and under intense fire from the local media, the Pens circl [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins vs Columbus Blue Jackets 2014 Playoff Predictions

pp0450 The Pittsburgh Penguins start the first round of the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs against a Columbus Blue Jackets team who have played in the NHL for 14 years and have yet to win a playoff game.  Should be a slam dunk right? We’ve put together an incredible group of writers to predict how the series will pan out and at the same time throw [...]

Penguins Update: Where Have You Gone Harry Z?

pp0443 When Penguins GM Ray Shero acquired Harry Zolnierczyk from Anaheim last summer for minor-league defenseman Alex Grant, I thought it was a terrific move. Given the departures of Matt Cooke and Tyler Kennedy, I figured “Dirty Harry” could fill an energy role on the third or fourth line, with the potential to put up Kennedy-type numbers. And he [...]

Penguins Update: Stempniak Provides a Spark

pp0442 Lately the Pittsburgh Penguins haven’t had a whole lot to write home about. The black and gold is mired in an ugly 2-4-1 funk. They’re a mediocre 6-6-2 since the Olympic break. With superstar Evgeni Malkin (hairline foot fracture) joining the ranks of the wounded, the injury bug continues to take a wicked toll. While good news is decidedly to [...]

Sweet Georgia Brown: Penguins on Shaky Ground

pp0441 During each of the past three seasons the Pittsburgh Penguins rocketed through March and April, only to pull an el foldo in the playoffs. This year Dan Bylsma’s crew seems to be trying a totally different approach—play as poorly as possible in the stretch run and hope to heat up in the postseason. With a 5-4-2 record since the Olympic break, [...]
