Penguins-Flyers Rivalry Part 5: Eric Lindros and the Legion of Doom (1994-2005)

pp0422 Following a sorry sixth-place finish in 1991-92, the Flyers acquired the rights to phenom Eric Lindros from Quebec. Slowly but surely “the Next One” began to restore the Flyers to their former glory while centering the imposing “Legion of Doom” line for John LeClair and Mikael Renberg. The Penguins were no patsies, either. Loaded with big-nam [...]

Penguins-Flyers Rivalry Part 4: Super Mario and “the Streak” (1984-1994)

pp0423 The Penguins were on life support when they drafted Mario Lemieux with the first overall pick in the 1984 Entry Draft. Although No. 66 would eventually lead the team to two Stanley Cups, it didn’t alter the nature of the Pens-Flyers rivalry—at least not right away. Paced by burly 50-goal man Tim Kerr, Hall-of-Fame defenseman Mark Howe, trucul [...]

Penguins-Flyers Rivalry Part 1: Roots (1925-1967)

pp0424 Separated by only 300 miles of rolling Pennsylvania hills and grasslands, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia are worlds apart in terms of culture. Situated along the Delaware River, Philadelphia’s origins are deeply rooted in the American Revolution. The “City of Brotherly of Love” boasts of iconic symbols of freedom like Independence Hall and the L [...]

Matt Cooke, Todd Bertuzzi & the Mistake that is the NHL.

Matt Cooke I wrote this piece just after the Matt Cooke suspension was assessed.  Unfortunately, my day jobs sometimes get in the way, I didn’t finish in a pertinent time frame.  Well, Todd Bertuzzi has opened the door for me to submit my thoughts again. The punishment that Matt Cooke got for his flagrant violation is appropriate.  What Matt Cooke did w [...]

Vandelay’s Coffee Talk with Bernie Nicholls

bernie nicholls It’s not often you get to talk to a guy who has scored over 70 goals in one season in the NHL, after all there are only eight that have accomplished that feat.  It is not often you get to talk to a guy who has scored at least 150 points in one season in the NHL, only 5 have done that. Recently I caught up with the great Bernie Nicholls. [...]

Mario Lemieux’s Greatest Goal Finally Gets it’s Day in Court

Mario Lemieux 80's Starting tomorrow the Pittsburgh Penguins are giving fans a chance to vote on the greatest goal Mario Lemieux ever scored in a video tournament at www.gnc.pittsburghpenguins.com. I have seen Mario’s greatest goals video, the Penguins greatest goals video, I have even seen the Pittsburgh Penguin DVD set that has supposedly the Pittsburgh [...]

Did Rob Rossi of the Trib just call Shero & Lemieux stupid?

Lemieux and Shero Is Evgeni Malkin disgruntled with the Pittsburgh Penguins management right now? Yes he is, even more so than Sidney Crosby was a few years ago when the Penguins traded Crosby’s best friend on the team Colby Armstrong. The Penguins have not been able to sign Malkin’s best friend and mentor on the team, a guy who took Malkin under h [...]

Gameday Poop: Pittsburgh vs Montreal – Game 7 – Down & Dirty

Malkin & Crosby Many of the Penguins players will be facing their favorite childhood team in a game seven playoff game that they’ve played over and over in their younger heads scoring the game winning goal for the Canadiens. It’s time to trample the ghosts of their childhood heroes, it’s time to spit in the face of 100 years of hockey histo [...]

Video: What if Mario Wasnt so Super?

00ppfront New NHL playoff commercial asks “What if Mario Wasn’t so Super?”.. History Will be Made.. awsome. I hope they have the same video for Crosby and Malkin in 25 years.   LET’S GO PENS! (more…)

Pens Win Big on Closing Night at Mellon Arena

One last look at the old Igloo. I Just got back from the Igloo.  That was quite an experience tonight.  The celebration for the closing of the Mellon Arena was quite cool.  There was a lot of nostalgia to be had this evening.  From the very beginning when they brought out all of the past great Penguin players to the TV commercials from eras past that they played on the jumb [...]
