Penguins Update: The Sexy Seven

Who’s going to play third-line center? It’s been the hot-button topic for Penguins fans. Liable to be all summer, too, or at least until Pens GM Jim Rutherford makes a move. Last week we looked at some internal candidates. Today we’ll glance at potential trade options, or at least the ones who’ve churned through the rumor mill. For lack of a [...]

Penguins Update: Patsies No More

Rail-thin and timid as a kid, I often was the target of a neighborhood bully named Tommy S (I’ll withhold his last name). Beefier by far and a year or two older, he picked on me mercilessly, often causing me to retreat to the safety of my bedroom.

Penguins Update: The Recchin’ Ball Crashes the Hall

When the Penguins took Mark Recchi in the fourth round of 1988 Entry Draft, it was hardly a lock he’d make the team, let alone go on to a Hall-of-Fame career. Despite scoring 61 goals during his final season of junior hockey, he was passed over by the 21 NHL teams—including the Pens—not once, but three times. Too small, the scouts whispered.
