Found March 29, 2013 on The Pensblog:
Those who are old enough to have watched the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1993 likely won't ever forget them. This team was one of the most impressive collections of players in Pittsburgh Penguins history. It was perhaps the most impressive in team history, even better than the teams that won back-to-back Stanley Cups in 1991 and 1992. The team was, of course, lead by captain Mario Lemieux. Despite playing only 60 games due to battling Hodgkin's lymphoma, Lemieux scored a staggering 69 goals and 91 assists to win the Art Ross Trophy. He was also awarded the Hart, Pearson and Masterton trophies that season. But Mario Lemieux wasn't the only Penguin to find success that year. Four Pittsburgh Penguins recorded more than 100 points. Kevin Stevens had 111, Rick Tocchet had 109 and Ron Francis had 100. Jaromir Jagr wasn't far behind with 94. Defenseman Larry Murphy had 85 points. Goaltender Tom Barrasso recorded 43 wins. All of this success on the scoreshe...

Like a good neighbor, Ray Shero’s there or Are the 2013 Penguins now the 1927 Yankees?

With rumors flying all over the place that the Boston Bruins had put together a big time trade that would rival or even surpass the two that the Penguins had just made around midnight last night, I can just picture Penguins Assistant Coach Tony Granato running over to Head Coach Dan Bylsma and saying, “Do the jingle, do the jingle”  Bylsma then proceeded to sing, “Like a good...

Penguins Prospect Scott Harrington Is A Scary Dentist, Gave People HIV

Man that was a pretty heavy title. The Pens are down a top blue line prospect what with Joe Morrow being dealt for non-related Stars captain Brenden Morrow. We say "down" in only a certain sense, as the pipeline still holds Simon Despres, Robert Bortuzzo, Scott Harrington, Brian Dumoulin, Olli Maaty and Derrick Pouliot. Well one of those prospects, Scott Harrington...

Bruins Focused on Players on Team, Moving on After Missing Out on Jarome Iginla (Video)

The Bruins thought they had Jarome Iginla — then they didn’t. After losing out on the longtime Calgary captain to the Pittsburgh Penguins — who had also previously acquired Brenden Morrow and Doug Murray — suggesting it’s panic time for the Bruins might not be too far off the mark. Nonetheless, the players that are actually on the team are staying focused, saying that they’re...

Jay Feaster is the absolute worst

  Goddamn. Jay Feaster is so incompetent at his job that now he's expanded business to Boston. Not only did he tell Chiarelli that the Bruins had Jarome Iginla, he also requested the Bruins sign that one-year contract with Matt Bartkowski so he'd be all contracted up for the Flames when the trade was finalized. Matt Bartkowski confirmed his one-way contract was...

Peter Chiarelli Admits He Must Get ‘Creative’ As Bruins’ Need to Improve Becomes More Pressing

Peter Chiarelli stood in front of the Boston media Thursday afternoon looking like a tired and beaten man. In many ways, there were no better words to describe the Bruins general manager. Hopefully for his own physical sake he got a little bit of shut-eye after that revealing news conference, but he doesn’t have much time to rest. But then again, there’s no rest for the weary...

Trade deadline target: Jaromir Jagr

This post is complete speculation and is not intended to infer that the Rangers have seriously considered Jagr or that any negotiations are underway. In the wee hours of Thursday morning, Penguins GM Ray Shero was able to snatch Jerome Iginla out from under the Boston Bruins.  This acquisition made the Pens incredibly formidable on paper, and took the top RW available off the market...
