What The Hell Happened: Penguins gut out victory without Crosby and Malkin

A few years ago when Kris Letang got knocked out of a game against Dallas with a concussion, it stopped his great season in its tracks.

Letang helped on goals by Nick Spaling, Steve Downie...

Crosby and Fleury and This and That by @ChicksDigHockey

Should the Pens take a chance on The King of Leadership?

So look who is on waivers, Mike Richards. [ ESPN ] Richard’s contract is completely insane.

His deal pays him $7 million this season, $6 million next season, then $5.5 million in 2016-17, $4.5 million in 2017-18, and $3 million each of the last two years. So...

And mercifully All-Star weekend ends

All-Star weekend is finally over. It was a meaningless weekend, and even though some people got really mad about Sidney Crosby not being there, no one really cared, minus the journalists that were there.

Outrage at Sidney Crosby missing the All-Star game is ordinary, predictable.

LOL knew this was coming. [ Puck Daddy ] To put it in high-school terms: The other absences had doctor’s notes. This one feels like Sid took some vegetable soup, poured it into the toilet and told his parents he had the stomach flu. (I know this works. I tried it, to great effect.) Yea, sorry. Not one **** given here that Crosby is not at the All-Star game. A sad narrative in hockey...
