Coming Full Circle on the Salary Cap by @BrianK_PI

When the lockout ended and the salary cap was implemented prior to the 2005-06 season, the Pittsburgh Penguins were in a very different place than they are right now. They were awful on the ice, having gone 22-46-14; "good" for 58 points and a second to last place finish in the NHL. Their team payroll of $23.1 million was well below the $39 million salary cap and not much...

Sidney Crosby dressed as Rocky Balboa for Halloween

Sidney Crosby, arguably the best hockey player in the world, plays for the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Penguins and their fans don’t like the Philadelphia Flyers, and the feeling is quite mutual. Flyers fans have a particularly strong hatred for Crosby. With that in mind, do you think Sid the Kid dressing as Rocky Balboa for...Read More

Did Sidney Crosby troll Flyers fans with Halloween costume?

Halloween is always a good time to catch your favorite athletes dressed as semi-boring costumes, unless they drift into the racist end of the pool (looking at you, Raffi Torres). Or if you’re Sidney Crosby, you use your costume to possibly troll your arch enemy. Check out the picture below, from the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Halloween party this weekend: Loading Halloween in advance...

The Life Of The Pittsburgh Penguins Equipment Manager

from Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Pouring coffee with Penguins head equipment manager Dana Heinze can be a revealing experience. First, grab a Styrofoam cup, black or gold with the Penguins logo on the side. Heinze packs these for road trips and insists the Penguins are the only NHL team that travels with logo-covered cups. But don't dare put cream...

Snapshot: Pens stand up to Isles, win 3-1.

That awkward moment when people realize the Penguins are doing just fine without James Neal. It is early, but Patric Hornqvist is doing just fine in replacing James Neal. Against the Isles, he fired 12 shots , added the game winning goal, and game sealing empty net goal. He didn’t ruin any powerplays by taking a dumb penalty. He didn’t come unglued when someone hit him. Patric...

Brandon Sutter Primed for Career Season by @griffTHW

In coming to Pittsburgh, Brandon Sutter found himself with some large shoes to fill.  Effectively "replacing" Jordan Staal, the new guy in town landed in the shadow of a Stanley Cup champion and fan favorite, someone who did a little bit of everything for the Penguins.For some, Sutter will never completely fill those shoes but he certainly made strides in emerging...

@Penguins Fights: @Despres747 vs. @JVReemer21

Simon Despres vs James Van RiemsdykOct 11, 2014 3pd 19:272014-2015 Regular SeasonNot much of a battle but I'm liking this mean streak Despres has been on. After winning a preseason bout with Jason Zucker Despres took matters into his own hands after JVR sat on him after a lazy hit. JVR is not much of a scrapper and I think Despres was counting on it after getting hit with 3...

Five thoughts from Pittsburgh Penguins Opening Night

The 2014 NHL season came in with a roar for the Pittsburgh Penguins, who erupted for six goals in their home opener against the Anaheim Ducks. The win was the Pens fourth straight in a season opener, and while it was an entertaining game, there’s no denying just how different it was compared to what Penguins fans are used to seeing. A new system and some new faces were on display...
