Penguins Update: Missing Our Veteran Leaders

This is the last time I’ll write about departed veterans like Matt Cullen, Ron Hainsey and Chris Kunitz. I promise. They’ve moved on and so must we. I get it. Honest, I do. Except we miss ‘em. Big time. Perhaps not so much for what they contributed on the ice, which was considerable, as for what they provided behind the scenes and in the loc [...]

Penguins Update: Time to Act

I’ve been the voice of calm through a stormy first quarter of the season. Indeed, while my fellow PenguinPoop writers have suggested a shakeup to varying degrees, I’ve preached patience.

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. During those moments of isolation and despair I became fixated on those old Dynamic Tension ads [...]
