Life on the Farm: Part II

Yesterday I examined the basic components of an NHL farm system—scouting, developmental teams and coaching. Today I’ll delve into the true lifeblood of any hockey team…the players. THE PLAYERS They say all men are created equal. I’m sorry to tell you, fellow Pens fans, that does not apply on a hockey rink. Men are not all equal in hockey abil [...]

Penguins Falter, Lose to Chicago

I hope last night’s 4-1 loss to Chicago at the United Center wasn’t somehow symbolic. Like in the Miss America pageant, when last year’s honoree hands her crown to the latest winner. Unfortunately, that’s what it felt like. A changing of the guard…or passing of the Cup, if you will. The King is dead, Long live the King. Talk about two teams [...]

Penguins Update: Revisiting Ray’s Drafts

On one hand, the Pens remain perched atop the leaderboard of a weak Eastern Conference. However, in the wake of [...]

Penguins Beat Blackhawks 3-2 in a Barnburner

It’s a darn shame the Pittsburgh Penguins and Chicago Blackhawks meet only once a year. Games between the two clubs invariably feature superb skill play, gut-wrenching momentum swings, and the riveting intensity of a Stanley Cup Finals matchup. Tuesday night’s contest at the CONSOL Energy Center was no exception. Playing arguably their finest [...]
