It's Time to Warm Up Mike Johnston's Seat

In general, calling for a firing seven games into the season is an overreaction.  Season's are long, they ebb and flow, there are positive and negative streaks which will make teams look like world beaters and world beaten.  This is an exception to the rule.

The Crosby/Kessel Conundrum

The big splash of the off season, in perhaps all of hockey, was the Pittsburgh Penguins acquiring Toronto Maple Leafs sniper Phil Kessel.  For a team that had seen their goals dry up in multiple play off losses, he seemed a savior.

When it was announced he would be paired with superstar Sidney Crosby, it seemed to be a revelation.  "Finally!  A winger for Sidney Crosby!  Someone of his caliber!"  Indeed, in Kessel Crosby would have the best winger he'd had since Marian Hossa at the end of the 2007-08 season.

But is this really a pairing made to last?

On Losing a Championship

On June 14th, 2015 the ECHL's season came to an end as the Allen Americans, out of Allen, Texas, defeated the South Carolina Stingrays 6-1 in Game 7 of the Kelly Cup Finals in Texas.  I know this because I was there.

And I worked for the Stingrays.

Thank You, Bob Grove

Moments ago our friends over at broke the hard and sad news: Bob Grove would no longer be doing pre- and post-game for Penguins broadcasts.  It's a sad move for anyone who has listened to the Penguins on the radio at any time.  There's no way to truly say goodbye, but I'll try.

Charleston and Tragedy

I appreciate all who have reached out to check on my status, mentally and physically, after Wednesday's madness. That's what it is, madness. There is no other explanation for the hate that being had for others he'd never met.
