Black-and-Gold Update: Penguins Show Tons of Heart in Victory Over Philly

Kunitz Celebration They say confession is good for the soul. If so, I must confess here and now that this isn’t my favorite Penguins team. I think they’re too small. They lack defensive structure, especially in their own end. And coach Dan Bylsma seems rigidly resistant to making meaningful adjustments. Still, I couldn’t be more proud of our boys for the way th [...]

Plug ‘N’ Play Penguins Too Predictable?

Coach Bylsma For the past couple of seasons I’ve watched with increasing alarm as the Penguins have downsized (and defanged) in order to better fit Dan Bylsma’s “damn-the-torpedoes, full-steam-ahead” system. It’s no secret that Bylsma’s approach is predicated on wearing the other team down with a relentless attack. While speed certainly is an asset in tod [...]

Penguins Free-Agent Plans Go Pfft

Shero It wasn’t supposed to work out this way. Thanks to a pair of bold trades by Penguins GM Ray Shero at the Entry Draft that freed up millions in salary-cap space, the black and gold were supposed to be major players in the Zach Parise-Ryan Suter free-agent sweepstakes. One could almost picture Parise working the give-and-go to perfection with p [...]

Penguins Update: Malkin the Magnificent

00ppfront Back in 1963 Avis was determined to pry rent-a-car sales away from its giant rival Hertz. So president Robert C. Townsend devised a catchy new slogan to highlight his company’s underdog status—“We’re Only No. 2. We Try Harder.” Penguins superstar Evgeni Malkin can relate. The gifted center has spent virtually his entire career skating in the [...]

Penguins Update: History Repeating Itself

Neal & Niskanen In nature everything runs in cycles. Seasons change from winter to spring to summer to fall, and back again. The same holds true in sports. Championship teams are cultivated and nurtured through a combination of drafts, trades and free-agent signings until they peak. Then they gradually diminish until they enter a rebuilding phase. Only three [...]

Senators Chill Hot Penguins 8-4

00ppfront Entering Saturday night’s contest with the Penguins at Scotiabank Place, the backpedaling Ottawa Senators had lost three straight, including an embarrassing 5-1 shellacking at the hands of Montreal on Friday. They were in desperate need of a win, not to mention some offense (nine goals in their past six games). Remarkably, the high-flying Pen [...]

Senators Rout Reeling Penguins 5-1

00ppfront Entering Tuesday night’s contest with Ottawa at CONSOL Energy Center, the Pittsburgh Penguins were in desperate need of a win. After climbing to the top of the standings in the early weeks of the season, the injury-ravaged Pens suddenly found themselves clinging to the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference courtesy of an uns [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins Sign Defensive Help

00ppfront It would appear that maybe Ray Shero had a back-up plan in the likely event that Gonchar or Hamhuis would not sign. The Pens have pried Zbynek Michalek from the Phoenix Coyotes. Michalek fills the need for a defensive defensemen. The Pens signed Michalek to a 5 year deal totaling 20 million. 2010 Pittsburgh Penguins Free Agents

Did Rob Rossi of the Trib just call Shero & Lemieux stupid?

Lemieux and Shero Is Evgeni Malkin disgruntled with the Pittsburgh Penguins management right now? Yes he is, even more so than Sidney Crosby was a few years ago when the Penguins traded Crosby’s best friend on the team Colby Armstrong. The Penguins have not been able to sign Malkin’s best friend and mentor on the team, a guy who took Malkin under h [...]
