Are the Penguins a Team in Transition?

Transition is defined by Merriman-Webster as a “passage from one state, stage, subject or place to another.” In a word, change. The times definitely are a changin’ for our Pittsburgh Penguins. Indeed, just as the natural seasons go through cycles, so do the fortunes of sports teams. Even the mightiest of champions aren’t immune to the ravages [...]

Penguins Update: Ouch!

It was another Thursday evening. March 22, 1984, to be exact. Before Mario Lemieux, way before our first Stanley Cup.

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.
