Penguins Update: Too Early to Worry?

Coach Mike Sullivan likes to use a simple catchphrase when the Penguins pay attention to the details. He calls it “playing the right way.” Six games into the new season, the Pens have lived up to Sully’s standards twice by my humble estimation. Namely, last Saturday’s shutout victory over Nashville and the scintillating follow-up triumph over [...]

Are the Penguins a Team in Transition?

Transition is defined by Merriman-Webster as a “passage from one state, stage, subject or place to another.” In a word, change. The times definitely are a changin’ for our Pittsburgh Penguins.

However, Jim’s recent article got me to thinkin’ (always a dangerous thing). Why not establish performance-based pay grades for hockey players, just like in the business world? First, [...]

Change…Here it Comes!

Change. It’s inevitable. Some of us embrace it. Others fear it. Many of us, just like the ostrich, bury our head in the sand and refuse to accept it, while still others argue adamantly against it.
