Life on the Farm: Part II

Yesterday I examined the basic components of an NHL farm system—scouting, developmental teams and coaching. Today I’ll delve into the true lifeblood of any hockey team…the players. THE PLAYERS They say all men are created equal. I’m sorry to tell you, fellow Pens fans, that does not apply on a hockey rink. Men are not all equal in hockey abil [...]

The Penguins Great Third Line Center Debate goes on.

This is the off-season. Not much is really going on around the league, nor have the Penguins done much either. However, that doesn’t mean that there is nothing to talk about.
