Team Report Card Part 3

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
Hey Pens Fans, Here is the thhird and final segmet of the team report card. Nils Ekman Nils only played in 34 games this injury plagued season. He was -14 and besides a few patches, his play was ineffective. I think we should be able to expect more from him, but this year was a disappointment. Grade: C- Josef Melichar How is he still a Penguin? Every season I ask...
Defining of a Hockey Hero I thought I would write my next blog on hockey heroes. First, I would like to define hero. I asked some of my friends to pick their hockey hero and tell me why they picked that person. So let’s find out who my friends picked and why. Jimmer and CaptPantalones both picked Pat Lafontaine. He shows what it’s like to be a leader, teammat...

My Bloodied Kings

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
In the past...My Kings have come up short on the on the goaltending end. Every year the managment has brought in "has beens" or "never will be" goaltenders. Last year was a test after the "never will be" Cloutier failed us Mighty Kings fans, the Kings Management put their trust in another "never will be" Garon. Garon was injured or never fit into management scheme of thing...

Week 1's Hero and Zero

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
I have decided to start up my own little blog entry, similar to the players of the week. Except it will be the Hero and Zero, (although I may add a couple of sidekicks for the Hero if I feel it is necessary), pretty self explanatory I think so I will just get right into it for week one.

Hero and Zero: Week 3

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
I missed week 2, so this one will cover the past 2 weeks. HERO: Martin Biron Posting 4 wins (2 of them shutouts) in 4 games, Biron was an easy choice here. Stopping 140 of 143 shots during the 4 game stretch, the Flyers are making some big time noise in the Eastern Conference, with Biron providing A+ goaltending to aid the cause. He is leading the league with 6 win...
As the trade deadline approaches, Rangers fans begin to wonder about what Glen Sather will do. Will he pick up a big player? Will he dump Malik or Mara? The biggest question mark is Jaromir Jagr. He doesn't seem to have much in the tank or much durability in the rear fender. He has scored only 16 goals and 38 assists in 63 games and does not seem prone to break out of his ...

Busts/Heroes

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
Looking at what Danny Briere has done during these playoffs, should we forget about his non-contract worthy regular season? Briere still had points to make a good season but not the season Philly signed him for. Here are his stats this year and last: GP G A P +/- PIM PP SH GW Shots % 2006-2007 Sabres 81 32 63 95 17 89 9 ...
So, I lucked my way into a ticket because my sister in law couldn't go and my mother in law invited me, bless her heart! So, I will first admit that this was my first Flyers game at the Spectrum and sadly I imagine it will be my last. But, it was an amazing experience. My mother in law has a good friend who has been a season ticket holder since 1969 and apparently has ...
It was Chris Drury on Monday night. Two nights earlier it was Nikolai Zherdev. Since October 4th it has been Scott Gomez, Brandon Dubinsky, Markus Naslund, and Henrik Lundqvist among others. And while common sense would seem to dictate that teams without 35+ goal scorers are lost, the 9-2-1 Rangers are proving that scoring by committee can be just as effective. It is true ...
I was fortunate enough to go see the Flyers play last night, and finally, there came a time when they didn't seem to disappoint. I was sitting 10 rows up on the mezzanine level so i was WAY up there, but I was dead center and got to see the entire view of the rink which I love. I ended up taking my friend who took a bus down from Brooklyn because we are both die-hard fan...
Today's trade of Ryan Whitney for Chris Kunitz and prospect Eric Tangradi may have left some Penguins fans asking the question: [b]This is the scoring winger we are getting to play with Sid?[/b] While the initial reaction might be to assume Shero expects Kunitz to play on Sid's wing, in a role similar to what Marian Hossa's was, the comments from both Shero and coach...

Congrats to the Pens

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
So they young Pens finally crested the proverbial mountain and overcame 2 - 0 and 3 - 2 series defecits to conquer the Wings and win the first (of what could be many) Stanley Cup of the Sidney Crosby era. As a Rangers fan I am not obligated to feel anything other than disgust and envy when a hated division rival succeeds where the Rangers have failed for the last 14 season...
I thought I would do a blog on a much more positive note, something we need once in a while, don’t ya think? I want to talk about the underdog players and why they make good ambassadors for the game? I know it’s a purely objective, but I am writing, and you are all wrong if you disagree with me. I know some of them may be slightly obvious, but I might just surprise y...

THE UNSUNG HERO

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
I really hate the off-season, because it's really hard to write a blog at this time of year. In fact, it makes it almost impossible to write one right now. Please bear with me as I try to figure out what to write. You think I am joking? I have already deleted this column 3 times! I thought I would write about someone who does not get written about, and talk about th...
Happy retirement to Chris Drury. I really was hoping Montreal could've picked him up. Class act and a great player. Okay, so here we go with part 2. If you haven't seen part 1, go to my profile and check it out if it still isn't on homepage. What I'm doing here is a 5 part series of blogs. Part 1, Western Conference standings predictions. Part 2, Eastern Conference. Par...
Well, here we go. This is Part 3 of the series and I can't believe we're almost done!!! If you have no idea whats going on, I highly suggest you click onto my profile and read Part 1 and Part 2 and leave a comment telling me what you think! Part 1 of the series was dedicated to the Western Conference Regular season standings, while Part 2 was dedicated to the Eastern C...
What is going on here? Wade Belak, the happiest man on this planet, committed suicide. I know exactly what Wade's family is going through right now and what they're thinking. "Is it my fault?", "Why wasn't he happy enough?", "How could he do this to us?". My thoughts, prayers and condolences are with the Belak family in their time of need. Okay, lets talk predictions. T...
Welcome to the final part of my 5 part series. But, before we start I have 3 things I want to say. 1) I dedicate this post to the victims of the tragic 9/11 terrorist attack. As all of you know, today marks the 10th anniversary of the horrific event. I actually have a personal connection to a victim. My aunt was actually a flight attendant on American Airlines Flight 1...

No Freddy the Fog again!?!

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
As usual, Fred Shero was not voted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. I certainly am not surprised by this since I don't think they'll ever enshrine Fred into the Hall of Fame. I heard there are some people highly opposed to his enshrinement. I guess it has to do with the whole "Broad Street Bullies" era of the Flyers. I was a small kid at the time and don't remember a l...
As we get closer to Sunday fans cannot seem to contain their excitement, expectations and fears. It is that time of the year again. The draft has concluded and each team's fanbase awaits news from the front about who their team is pursuing. Free agency will be upon us. For some teams, there is new found money to spend. Exits from the playoffs put strain on GMs to rethink ...
As I woke up this morning from my drunken stupor the night before, at around 9:30am, I began checking Twitter and the rumor mill for early news on Parise and Suter. Sure enough, around 11am, Dave Molinari, Pens beat writer for the Post Gazette, tweeted that the Penguins are "officially out" on Zach Parise. And by lunch time that was confirmed when Mike Russo, Wild ...
By now, I'm sure that you all have heard that Zach Parise & Ryan Suter chose the Minnesota Wild. And to further complicate things for the Pens, they allowed Steve "Sully" Sullivan to walk away, and sign a one year deal in Phoenix. This certainly leaves Ray Shero in quite the predicament, as he needs to find a top-6 winger to play alongside Sidney Crosby. A lo...

Nobody Asked Me But...

-- The Boston Bruins are making the Chicago Blackhawks look a lot like the Penguins did in the Eastern Conference Finals. Game 4 is huge for the Hawks (says Captain Obvious) but it will be even more difficult to win if Marian Hossa is out of the line-up again. Either way, it will be interesting to see if Chicago can make any adjustments to help them out of the sleeper hold...
After a solid effort against one of the easts top teams, the Lightning are ready to overcome their loss and avoid receiving back-to-back losses for only the 2nd time this season. With the help of solid goaltending and a team effort, it's hard not to like the lightning's chances heading into the first battle of these two teams. Since the loss of Steven stamkos, the light...
Tampa has been shut out in 3 of the last 5 outings. Due to lack of goal scoring capabilities, the Lightning have managed some fine line shuffling for tonights til against the great white norths capital. I am a huge fan of these new lines. During practice yesterday, the new lines looked like this: Peca Richard Hart Ikonen Drouin Palat Panik Johnson Killorn Kucherov Mu...
Those Penguins fans expecting to plan a parade route later this year will likely be sorely disappointed. The Penguins got a severe taste of reality following the Olympic break, running into Chicago, Anaheim and San Jose. They were not very successful, although Marc Andre Fleury--a favorite lightning rod of mine--was able to steal 2 points for them from Anaheim. This ...
The Hart Trophy has been a hot topic around the NHL for the better part of this entire season. It seems like there’s a new name added to the list of potential nominees each week. While reporters everywhere have dug into all the reasons why certain players should win, I’ve decided to look at the consistency of these players throughout the year in regards to offensive pr...
