Penguins Update: I Was Wrrrr…

00ppfront For those of us ancient enough to remember the TV show Happy Days, it was a classic episode. The one where Fonzie tried to admit he was wrong to Ralph Malph, but couldn’t get the words out. “I was wrrrr…,” stammered the Fonz. Well, the same goes for me. I was wrrrr… about our Penguins. Six weeks ago I predicted a black-and-gold im [...]

Penguins Primed for a Freefall

pp0564 The disintegration of our Pittsburgh Penguins has begun. By my unofficial time table, a season or two early. It isn’t as much a prediction as a statement of fact.

Penguins Johnston Shows Character

pp0398 As a hockey fan who’s grown disenchanted with the Pittsburgh Penguins’ erratic team defense—particularly during the playoffs—I’ve often wished the Pens could figure a way to implant a Michel Therrien chip into Dan Bylsma’s noggin. Then the black and gold would have the best of both worlds—an upbeat, popular coach who could instill in his troo [...]

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 [...]
