Penguins Dice Devils, Grab Home Ice

I’ll say this about our Penguins. Win, lose or draw, they sure are fun to watch. Talk about entertainment. There scarcely was a dull moment during the Pens’ 7-4 rout of New Jersey last night. A victory that, coupled with a Columbus loss, enabled the black and gold to sew up home-ice advantage for the opening round of the playoffs. Although a [...]

Open Letter to Penguins Nation

While we’re waiting to see if Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford pulls the trigger on any more deals, I thought it would be fun to glance back at the best (and worst) deadline trades in team history. I’ll call ‘em doozies ‘n’ duds. The best deadline deal of all-time? That’s easy. “The Trade.” Given a mandate by Hartford owner Richard Gor [...]
