Found January 06, 2013 on The Pensblog:
  #dregerface saved the season, by the way.   The last time we were all having a hockey convo it was sometime last June when the Pens traded Jordan Staal. It feels great to be back. We haven't been this excited since Christoper Lloyd didn't die in Back to the Future.   What will the schedule be? When will the season start? What is the cap?   Answers to those questions and how they affect the Penguins after the jump.     When does the season start? As of Sunday night, still not clear. The CBA still needs to be ratified by the Owners who may meet between Tuesday and Wednesday according to John Shannon.  There is even talk that camps could open as soon as Wednesday.   Shero told he doesn't know if it is going to be a five or seven day camp.   By the way, you'll know when the CBA is done when returns players to background. They had to strip all of those graphics away when the...

Relieved Penguins eager to get back to business

Sidney Crosby and nearly a dozen of his Penguins teammates worked out at a suburban Pittsburgh ice rink on Monday, just as they did during the four-month NHL lockout.

Crosby keeps it real in this video from 2009

If there's one thing that's annoying about Sidney Crosby, it's his innate ability to churn out meaningless quotes every time someone asks him a question.  By the end of his second year in the NHL, we were already skipping his quotes in anything we were reading.  Snore fest.  We know why he is the way he is, but it just got old really fast. Over the weekend, we...

Sprint schedule will test organizational depth

Ray Shero's signing of Tomas Vokoun might be one of the most important moves he's ever made.  Teams with a solid 1-2 punch between the pipes are gonna have a decided advantange, as all teams will be staring 3- and 4-game weeks in the face, not to mention the likely possibiity of double-digit back-to-back situations, and every game is going to carry importance. Then you...
