Does Nail Yakupov Make Sense for the Penguins?

Note: A couple of hours after I posted this article, Yakupov signed a one-year deal with the Colorado Avalanche for $875,000. Talk about timing! Now that the first hectic days of free-agent season have passed, we’ve settled into the dog days of summer, when activity on the hockey front is scarce as a snowball floating down the Mon.

How prophetic he was. However, for the longest time—through an unending string of playoff disappointments—it seemed the promise of those day [...]

Penguins Playoff Update: Let’s Hope History Doesn’t Repeat Itself

Buried deep within the Penguins’ glorious Game Five victory over the Predators on Thursday night is a most disturbing pattern. One I feel compelled to write about in hopes of dispelling any bad juju or lingering negative mojo. Go back with me eight years, if you will, to June of 2009.
