Penguins Update: Recchi to Replace Tocchet

The Arizona Coyotes have hired popular Penguins assistant Rick Tocchet as their new head coach. The appointment–rumored to be in the works for some time–was announced earlier today by Coyotes GM John Chayka. “I’m extremely happy to be back with the Coyotes organization,” Tocchet said. “I loved playing here [...]

A View From Up North!

Can you imagine my shock when I received an e-mail from Mr. Buker, asking me if I would like to write an article or two for PenguinPoop? My first reaction was to check the date on my calendar and see if it was April 1st! No such luck. The request was real. Now what do I do? Aside from commenting on PP, I’ve never written a thing!

Sergeant Joe Friday and Officer Bill Gannon, on loan from the LAPD, knock on the front door to the home of Polly Penzfan. Clad in a Penguins toque, Sidn [...]

Penguins Update: So Why Do We Hate the Flyers So Much?

As our Penguins prepare to square off with the Philadelphia Flyers tonight in the latest installment of “The Battle of Pennsylvania,” it occurred to me that many younger fans may not understand or fully appreciate the deeply rooted hatred between the two clubs. Especially considering that it’s a kinder, gentler Flyers team we face these days. [...]
