Penguins and Crosby have ‘something to prove’

There is no better feeling than when hockey fever is finally back in the air. Penguins’ fans had their longest off-season in three years. With training camp around the corner, storylines for the new season have begun to surface as teams are talking to the media and players are taking the ice. For the Penguins, however, the story is simple, “let’s bring the cup back.”  That seems to be the sentiment from ownership all the way down to the most casual fan. In his … Continue reading Penguins and Crosby have ‘something to prove’

The Capitals are Stanley Cup Champions

For my entire life, three things were inevitable: Death, taxes, and the Penguins will beat the Capitals in the second round. At the time, it almost seemed impossible.

That’s quite impressive, especially for a man that is typically referred to as out of shape in the hockey community. The streak is all the proof … Continue reading Kessel finishes 8th straight full season with career year

Don’t look now: Brassard is going streaking

The Penguins caught one of the bigger fish at this year’s trade deadline in acquiring Derick Brassard from Ottawa. He has walked into a stacked, experienced, yet still young Penguins team as the third line center, almost immediately cementing himself as the best “third-line center” in the entire league. It would only be a matter of time until he would come into his own on … Continue reading Don’t look now: Brassard is going streaking

I figured I’d take out an introduction paragraph here to talk about what I am going to write about in this series. I plan on doing one of these every week until I finally get through the entire Penguins roster, Barring any changes. (Shoutout to Jim Rutherford, make some moves buddy).
