WE DID IT! PENGUINS WIN THE CUP!

539b I can write this now without fear of jinxing our guys. Throughout the Stanley Cup playoffs and, especially, during the Finals, I’ve felt an odd sense of calm. As if our Penguins were somehow predestined or preordained to win the Cup. A notion reinforced yesterday morning at church. Following the service, I stopped to greet associate pastor an [...]

Penguins Stanley Cup Update: A Familiar Ring

pp0629 The history of the Pittsburgh Penguins is filled with anomalies and precursors. Consider, for example, the strange case involving three of the team’s brightest stars—Michel Briere, Mario Lemieux, and Sidney Crosby. If you add the uniform numbers of Briere (21) and Mario (66), it equals Sid’s 87. Stuff like that. Along those lines, the paths [...]

Penguins Short-Circuit Lightning in Game 3

pp0617 Flash back with me, if you will, to last Friday night. At the risk of wearing out a familiar theme, I approached my good friend, Tom Blanciak, who was gazing up at one of the Pennsbury Pub and Grille’s big-screen TVs.

The club was considering associate GM Jason Botterill and analyst Pierre McGuire, among others, before JR emerged—seemingly from left field—to win the job. Now? It [...]

Penguins Update: Revisiting Ray’s Drafts

shero2 In Ray we trust. Remember that axiom? Indeed, it wasn’t all that long ago that former Penguins (and current Devils) general manager Ray Shero was the toast of the town. Back when he regularly fleeced his GM brethren (Chris Kunitz for Ryan Whitney). Moves that earned him General Manager of the Year honors in 2013. Before a string of playoff di [...]

Penguins Ink Maatta to Six-Year Pact

pp0581 The Penguins signed defenseman Olli Maatta to a six-year contract extension yesterday. The $24.5-million deal, which starts next season, will pay Maatta an average annual salary of $4.083 million through 2021-22. A bold move for a team more noted for trading young players than developing them. “It feels awesome,” Maatta told the Penguins web [...]
