My Favorite Penguins Team

1974-75 Over the course of their storied 50-year-history, the Penguins have iced all sorts of hockey teams. From the sublime to the hapless…and worse. They’ve literally come in all shapes and sizes. Different colors, too. Until January 1980, the team sported Columbia blue, navy blue and white. Thus, I decided to break with the present and write [...]

Penguins Update: Deadline Doozies ‘n’ Duds

00ppfront While we’re waiting to see if Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford pulls the trigger on any more deals, I thought it would be fun to glance back at the best (and worst) deadline trades in team history.

Penguins Update: Adversity Arrives in the ‘Burgh

Our Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals are set to renew one of the most bitter (and one-sided) rivalries in Stanley Cup history at the Verizon Center on Thursday night. Dino Ciccarelli. EJ versus Schony. Frankie Leroux’s rush. The Mask. Starting in 1991, the Pens and [...]

Penguins Rutherford Evokes Memories of Bastien

00ppfront As I was thinking about yesterday’s trade and how it might affect our Penguins—artistically and financially—it brought to mind a general manager from the past. His name was Aldege “Baz” Bastien. Like present-day GM Jim Rutherford he, too, was a former goalie who had once backstopped a Steel City hockey team. In Baz’s case, the old Pittsburgh [...]
