One was to ‘get the old gang back together’ and secondly, rectify a mistake. The first was to possibly reunite winger Mikael Renberg with his “Legion of Doom” linemates Eric Lindros and John LeClair. This trio had a magical run through the...

Prior to the game, Eric Lindros and John LeClair will be inducted...

Vandelay’s Coffee Talk with Darius Kasparaitis

During the Sidney Crosby era, it seems that the one key component that is the cause for the numerous untimely exits from the playoffs has been a physical defenseman. The Pittsburgh Penguins have been lacking a defenseman that can change the momentum of a game or series with a single hit. They are lacking a defenseman who is willing to defend his teammates without any regard for his...

Stories from rookie year paint Eric Lindros as first-class jerk

Former NFL player and official Paul Stewart wrote an entertaining column for the Huffington Post recently to share some tales from his officiating career.

There’s a ton to discuss here, so I’ll stop blabbering on and get right down to it. One more thing, though: the Hall of Fame typically inducts men (and women) into categories...
