Pittsburgh Penguins Trade Rumors by @MadChad412 and @IanAltenbaugh

Trade rumors are simply the best. As a Pittsburgh Penguin fan and blogger, I've learned to accept them for what they are and usually greet them with a smile. When it comes to the Pens, every year the trading target for them seems to be a top-six winger. This year is no different.  Last year, Ray Shero blew the lid off of the roof when he traded for future Hall of Famer Jarome...

Top 10 Pavel Bure Moments: #2 Game 7 Hero

If you close your eyes and I say the name “Pavel Bure” there’s a pretty good chance you’re imagining his goal in game 7 against the Calgary Flames in 1994. Tom Larscheid immediately called it the “greatest moment in Canucks history” and he was absolutely right (hint: the #1 moment on this countdown tomorrow might incorporate this goal as well). Here’s how Jim Robson...

J.O.B. Looking for a Job

Drafted in the first round of the 2007 NHL, Jim O’Brien may have the distinction of being Bryan Murray’s first ever draft selection as GM of the Ottawa Senators, but you would be a fool not to think of him as one of the last remaining remnants of the John Muckler era. Talking to reporters at a media availability back in January of 2011, Murray made reference to the prospects...

James Neal: A Formula For Success by @chicksdighockey

Gary Roberts is revered in Pittsburgh.  To hear some Penguin fans talk you’d think he spent a large chunk of his career in the ‘Burgh. In reality, Roberts spent less than two seasons in the Penguin organization. In 2007, he was brought in to add a leadership presence to a young Penguins team which he did by helping them reach the playoffs for the first time in six years...

Happy six years to the Fedko/Gary Roberts Pranks

A simpler time. Us and a few of you out there spent the entire 2007 summer talking to John Fedko and dropping Gary Roberts references on his show. We broke his will at many points, none better than around the 5:15 mark of this vid, posted six years ago:

English Soccer Player Gary Roberts Pulls Down Opponent’s Shorts In Front of Referee (Video)

When his opponent was acting like a child, Gary Roberts‘ had two choices: he could either be the grown-up or respond in kind. He chose the latter. Roberts, a 29-year-old English soccer player, pulled down his opponent’s shorts during a League Two (English fourth division) game Saturday. Astonishingly, the referee did not punish Roberts for the schoolyard prank — even though...

Soccer Player Gets Pantsed In Front Of Ref

We are getting close to the EPL kickoff, so in the meantime you can enjoy a fairly hilarious prank which went down this weekend during an England League 2 game. Chesterfield FC’s Gary Roberts decided it would be a good idea prior to a free kick to pull down the shorts of Cheltenham captain Russell Penn directly in front of a referee. It was actually pretty great. [FOX Soccer...

Wednesday leave it late

Chris Maguire scored a last-minute equaliser as Sheffield Wednesday salvaged a 1-1 warm-up draw at Chesterfield. The League Two side looked to have got the better of their South Yorkshire neighbours but Maguire sidestepped his man and rifled a 20-yard shot past Tommy Lee to keep Dave Jones' side unbeaten in pre-season. Jones handed a start to striker Atdhe Nuhiu, a free transfer...

Iron drop down despite victory

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino could not hide his disappointment with his side's below-par display against West Brom. The lacklustre performance was the worst since the Argentinian replaced Nigel Adkins at the helm in January and brought an abrupt end to a six-match unbeaten streak. "From my point of view we just didn't start in the game," Pochettino told...

Penguins Update: No To-Morrow for Brenden

With all due respect to Jarome Iginla, Jussi Jokinen, and Douglas Murray, my favorite Penguins acquisition at the 2013 trade deadline was Brenden Morrow.Call me old school, but ever since “Scary” Gary Roberts left the ‘Burgh during the summer of 2008 I’ve felt the Pens have lacked a certain element. Call it “functional snarl,” if you will. I knew the 34-year-old Morrow...
