Life on the Farm: Part II

Yesterday I examined the basic components of an NHL farm system—scouting, developmental teams and coaching. Today I’ll delve into the true lifeblood of any hockey team…the players. THE PLAYERS They say all men are created equal. I’m sorry to tell you, fellow Pens fans, that does not apply on a hockey rink. Men are not all equal in hockey abil [...]

Maple Leafs Rake Penguins

In the wake of last night’s 5-3 loss to Toronto, there’s good news and bad news to report. First, the good news.

The ones who kayoed star defenseman Justin S [...]

Penguins Falter, Lose to Chicago

I hope last night’s 4-1 loss to Chicago at the United Center wasn’t somehow symbolic. Like in the Miss America pageant, when last year’s honoree hands her crown to the latest winner. Unfortunately, that’s what it felt like. A changing of the guard…or passing of the Cup, if you will. The King is dead, Long live the King. Talk about two teams [...]
