Penguins Sheary a Hit

pp0579 About a month ago I sat down to write a piece about a favorite bone of contention, the Penguins’ lack of size. Conor Sheary—just recalled from the Baby Pens—was going to be my focus. I tapped out a few lines and, feeling uninspired, pushed away from the keyboard. One of the very few times as a PenguinPoop blogger I’ve done that. I’m so glad [...]

Penguins Update: Wilson’s Goal a Thing of Beauty

pp0578 It was the prettiest goal scored by a Penguin in a long time. No, I’m not talking about Phil Kessel’s far-side laser from the right circle, although that one was nice, too. I’m referring to Scott Wilson’s tally. The one that came at 16:26 of the second period to give the Penguins a pronounced spark and a little breathing room during last nigh [...]

Penguins Update: I Was Wrrrr…

00ppfront For those of us ancient enough to remember the TV show Happy Days, it was a classic episode. The one where Fonzie tried to admit he was wrong to Ralph Malph, but couldn’t get the words out. “I was wrrrr…,” stammered the Fonz. Well, the same goes for me. I was wrrrr… about our Penguins.

The Incredible Shrinking Penguins

pp0563 One of the most popular Sci-Fi movies of the 1950s was The Incredible Shrinking Man. A businessman vacationing with his wife accidently gets exposed to a radioactive cloud, setting off a chain-reaction in his cells that caused his body to shrink. Hmmmm. I wonder if the same cloud passed over Consol Energy Center sometime in the recent past. A [...]

Penguins Sign Tom Sestito to a PTO

00ppfront In a low-risk effort to reinforce his star-studded squad with some muscle, Penguins GM Jim Rutherford announced on August 26 that he has invited heavyweight Tom Sestito to training camp on a tryout basis. There’s little doubt about what Sestito brings to the table. A third-round pick of Columbus in 2006, he’s skated in 137 NHL contests for th [...]
