6 Penguins in One Writers NHL Top 100

ESPN’s John Buccigross, one of the only ESPN folks that I actually like (probably because he likes hockey), came out with a list of the NHL’s top 100 this last week, and he showed some of our Pens some love.  Five Penguins showed up on the writer’s list with all 6 being 75 or better, 3 in the top 12 and 2 of the top 3 overall.  I didn’t run an overall tally of how many...

NHL All-Star Draft: Penguins on different teams

Last night was the NHL All Star Draft for the game this weekend.  I think this is so genius and so much fun to have two captains pick their own team rather than just doing East versus the West.  Could you imagine if the NFL did the Pro Bowl like that?  The two captains were Ottawa’s Daniel Alfredsson and  Boston’s Zdeno Chara.

The Penguins are guaranteed to have at least one player on the winning team Sunday in the NHL All-Star Game at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa. At least one on the losing club, too. That is because their three representatives in the game -- center Evgeni Malkin, winger James Neal and defenseman Kris Letang -- are divided between the competing squads.
