Vandelay’s Coffee Talk with Darius Kasparaitis

pp0494 During the Sidney Crosby era, it seems that the one key component that is the cause for the numerous untimely exits from the playoffs has been a physical defenseman. The Pittsburgh Penguins have been lacking a defenseman that can change the momentum of a game or series with a single hit. They are lacking a defenseman who is willing to defend [...]

Penguins Free-Agent Update: Where’s the Beef?

pp0492 In the wake of Ray Shero’s dismissal in May, Penguins owners Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle repeatedly stressed the need to add more grit and character to their hockey team. On the first day of free agency new GM Jim Rutherford devised a novel approach for addressing that need. He let the Pens’ grit-and-character guys bolt. In a mass depa [...]

Penguins Update: A Requiem for Dan and Ray

pp0488 Somewhere Craig Patrick must be smiling. Not an arrogant, misery-loves-company smile. More of a rueful, knowing grin. Aside from Mario Lemieux, no one did more to save the Pittsburgh Penguins than Patrick. He literally dragged the franchise from the gutter of mediocrity in the early 1990s and willed it onto a championship course. However, fol [...]

Penguins Update: Something Fishy in the ‘Burgh

pp0486 Something smells fishy in the ‘Burgh. And it ain’t Wholey’s seafood market. Ever since the Penguins were eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs on Tuesday night, the local and national media reported that Dan Bylsma was out as Penguins coach. Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, citing sources close to the team, indicated it wa [...]

The Jagr Saga: Time for Penguins Fans to Bury the Hatchet

pp0411 When New Jersey winger Jaromir Jagr stepped onto the ice last night at CONSOL Energy Center, I was hoping against hope that the partisan crowd would let bygones be bygones and treat the future Hall-of-Famer with some dignity and class. Alas, an all-too predictable chorus of boos rained down from the rafters whenever Jagr touched the puck. Rou [...]

Penguins Okay with Second Best

pp0397 After reading Phil Krundle’s passionate, well-thought, and superbly crafted feature on the state of the Penguins (and coach Dan Bylsma), I almost didn’t post this piece. It’s not nearly as comprehensive as Phil’s, but it represents a different point of view. In that spirit I decided to post it: I never thought I’d see the day when the Penguin [...]

Video: Sidney Crosby Goes All Mario Lemieux On The Islanders

pp0389 Here is Sidney Crosby & Mario Lemieux’s goal side by side.  Crosby’s amazing goal was almost identical to the goal that Mario Lemieux scored against the Islanders then had bronzed outside the Consol Energy Center.   Also,  videos of the goal from on 3 other broadcasts including the Islanders broadcast where they say Crosby did [...]

Are Penguins Doomed to Repeat History?

pp0379 During a recent interview with Craig Adams, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette asked the Penguins forward if he thought history might play a part in the opening-round series between the Pens and Islanders. “I always laugh when I see historical statistics that don’t really mean anything,” Adams said. However, as Winston Churchill onc [...]

Today is the 25th Anniversary of Mario Lemieux’s Greatest Game and Greatest Goal

pp0362 It’s funny how history works. If the Penguins didn’t go on to win the Stanley Cup in the 1990-91 season, most Pittsburgh Penguin fans wouldn’t be familiar with “The Save” that Frank Pietrangelo made that turned the playoffs around. If the Pittsburgh Pirates didn’t have a defensive lapse in the ninth inning [...]

Penguins Update: A Funny Thing Happened on the Road to the Cup

pp0361 It sure is a wonderful time to be a Penguins fan. With a little help from friends Pascal Dupuis and Chris Kunitz, Sidney Crosby has reestablished himself as the finest player in the game. Our boys are making mincemeat out of the rest of the NHL to the tune of 14-straight wins. They’ve allowed only 9 goals in the past 10 games—including three [...]
