Sweet Georgia Brown: Penguins on Shaky Ground

pp0441 During each of the past three seasons the Pittsburgh Penguins rocketed through March and April, only to pull an el foldo in the playoffs. This year Dan Bylsma’s crew seems to be trying a totally different approach—play as poorly as possible in the stretch run and hope to heat up in the postseason. With a 5-4-2 record since the Olympic break, [...]

Penguins Update: Time to Trade Malkin?

pp0111 There was a time when the thought of trading superstar Evgeni Malkin would’ve seemed so preposterous that it wouldn’t have entered my mind. After all, we’re talking about a Hart Trophy winner and two-time NHL scoring champ—a player of such singular brilliance and magnitude that he’s already carved out a prominent place among the pantheon of S [...]

A quick update on Staal Vs. Sutter

Brandon_Sutter_2013-01-18_1 As the Penguins get set to face the Carolina Hurricanes tonight for the first time since the trade last Summer that sent Jordan Staal to Carolina and returned to the Penguins Brandon Sutter and Brian Dumoulin and the draft pick that allowed them to select Derek Pouliot. Let’s take a quick look at how both sides have fared in this trade [...]

Selling High: Jordan Staal Heads to Carolina

00ppfront Hockey players are an investment. Safe investors sell high and reduce risking their whole portfolio over one risky investment. Ray Shero is a safe investor and Jordan Staal is no exception. I think Shero did what was best for the long-term future of the Pens. Look at some of the benefits: 1. We actually get something — more than just so [...]

Just kicking around some crazy Penguin trade ideas

00ppfront I was sitting around with a couple of my buddies talking, what else, Penguins hockey and what they might be doing in the coming months ahead.  We wondered what would happen if NHL general managers acted like fantasy hockey owners so we started throwing around some crazy trade ideas just to see which ones might actually be feasible in today [...]

Penguins Update: History Repeating Itself

Neal & Niskanen In nature everything runs in cycles. Seasons change from winter to spring to summer to fall, and back again. The same holds true in sports. Championship teams are cultivated and nurtured through a combination of drafts, trades and free-agent signings until they peak. Then they gradually diminish until they enter a rebuilding phase. Only three [...]

Penguins Must Wait ‘Til Next Year

00ppfront As a long-time Penguins fan, writing the summary for yesterday’s Game 6 loss to the Flyers was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. It was somewhat akin to writing an obituary for a dear friend who suddenly had passed away. Watching the game was even more painful. With dreams of a dramatic comeback from an 0-3 series deficit dancing [...]

Flyers Throttle Penguins 5-1, Advance to Second Round

00ppfront The Sports Illustrated jinx is alive and well. Seven days after SI posed the question—“Who Will Stop the Penguins?”—on the cover of its April 15 issue the new-look Flyers provided the answer. Paced by Claude Giroux’s three-point effort and some stingy defense (40 blocked shots), the Flyers eliminated their surprisingly subdued rivals in Game [...]

Flower Powers Penguins Past Flyers 3-2

00ppfront During the first four games of their incendiary opening-round series, the Penguins and Flyers provided enough fireworks to rival any Fourth of July pyrotechnics display. On Friday night Marc-Andre Fleury stole the show with a goaltending effort for the ages. In perhaps the most brilliant performance of his career “Flower” made 24 saves—includ [...]

Penguins Show Heart, Destroy Flyers 10-3

00ppfront The objective in any survival situation is to adapt, adjust, and overcome. With their playoff lives on the line the victory-starved Penguins achieved all three of those goals during Game 4 on Wednesday night. Three days after the Flyers delivered a beat-down that left them teetering on the brink of elimination, the boys from the ‘Burgh respon [...]
