Penguins Update: Air Malkin Takes Flight

pp0407 Contact Pittsburgh International Airport and have them clear the runways. Better warn NHL scoring leader Sidney Crosby to step aside, too. There’s a new jumbo jet cruising down the tarmac and it’s about to take flight. It’s called “Air Malkin.” Although my intro may be a bit clunky, I can assure you there’s nothing hokey about Evgeni Malkin’s [...]

Penguins Update: Despres Returns; D’Agostini Waived

00ppfront It’s getting so you can’t tell who’s on the ice and who’s in the hospital ward for the Penguins these days. In rapid succession the club lost Beau Bennett (wrist surgery), Tanner Glass (broken hand) and, now, top defenseman Paul Martin (broken tibia). Combined with previous injuries to defensive stalwart Rob Scuderi and forward Chuck Kobasew [...]

Penguins Update: First Quarter Report

pp0405 As the Penguins round the quarter pole of the 2013-14 season, I thought it might be an appropriate time to review the Top Five Pluses (and Minuses) so far. (more…)

Penguins an Easy Opponent?

pp0404 There was a time in the not-too-distant past when Pittsburgh Penguins opponents hated visiting the Steel City. Not only would they have to face a lethal lineup featuring hungry young stars such as Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, but they knew they’d absorb more than a few bumps and bruises, too. Now it seems, opponents are having far too eas [...]

Penguins Update: It’s Early But …

pp0403 … the Penguins remind me an awful lot of last season’s Stanley Cup winners, the Chicago Blackhawks. They’re playing with the same mix of speed, skill and grit, not to mention confidence, focus and desire. … Ray Shero should win his second straight General Manager of the Year award. Not only did the wily GM keep the team’s talented core intact [...]

Penguins Update: Bylsma Gets a “Therrien Chip”

pp0398 As a hockey fan who’s grown disenchanted with the Pittsburgh Penguins’ erratic team defense—particularly during the playoffs—I’ve often wished the Pens could figure a way to implant a Michel Therrien chip into Dan Bylsma’s noggin. Then the black and gold would have the best of both worlds—an upbeat, popular coach who could instill in his troo [...]

Penguins Set After Free-Agent Flurry

shero2 It didn’t take Penguins general manager Ray Shero long to wrap up his summer’s work. During the four short weeks that passed since the black and gold bowed to Boston in the Conference Finals, he resolved virtually all of the team’s looming personnel issues and laid the foundation for the upcoming campaign. Here’s a quick review of Shero’s mov [...]

Penguins Okay with Second Best

pp0397 After reading Phil Krundle’s passionate, well-thought, and superbly crafted feature on the state of the Penguins (and coach Dan Bylsma), I almost didn’t post this piece. It’s not nearly as comprehensive as Phil’s, but it represents a different point of view. In that spirit I decided to post it: I never thought I’d see the day when the Penguin [...]

Penguins GM Shero put Coach Bylsma in a Very Tough Situation

pp0392 In March when Penguins coach Dan  Bylsma had the Penguins rocking out a 12 game winning streak, you would have thought Christmas came early. Penguins GM Ray Shero started to bring in 4 new seasoned veterans to add to the Penguins already rich lineup.  The Penguins brought in leadership, grit, skill & experience.  Everything a coach could [...]

Penguins Update: No Joy in Mudville

Sidney Crosby Face Shield It’s been several days since Boston swept our beloved Penguins from Stanley Cup competition. In my mind, here are seven factors that led to the defeat: 1. Sid’s Jaw—The fractured jaw Sidney Crosby sustained with a month to go in the regular season may have contributed more than any other factor to the Penguins’ undoing. The combination of the [...]
