After the Black Friday of FA comes paying the bills of reality

Let me first say thanks to Rick and Phil for inviting me to write here on PenguinPoop. Hopefully, when I do contribute, I can at least maintain the quality of what they have always brought us. Rick Buker recently called July 1st the “Black Friday” of free agency. Rick, I think that was a pretty accurate allusion. As I read that little quip of [...]

Penguins Playoff Preview: Preds No Easy Prey

It was Thursday, April 13. While working the evening shift at Wright’s Gym, I intermittently glanced up at the Chicago-Nashville hockey game on the big screen TV behind the front desk. Much to my surprise, the visiting Predators shutout the heavily favored Blackhawks, 1-0. Like many fans, I’d envisioned the high-flying ‘Hawks soaring through [...]

Fresh off a rousing come-from-behind conquest of Washington in the opening round of the playoffs, the Penguins had toppled the Rangers—Presidents’ Trophy winners—in Game One at Madison Square Garden. They were up 1-0 in Game Tw [...]

Penguins Update: NHL Needs to Fix Playoff Format

No offense to the good citizens of Ottawa, or their hockey team. But every time I ponder the second-round playoff matchups in the Eastern Conference, I see red. Senators red. In one bracket, you have the Penguins and the Capitals duking it out. Arguably the two best teams in the league, they were the two top point-getters in the National Hock [...]
