Straight Fire: “New” Penguins Alt Uni


By Doud

People in P-Town pined in perpetuity for proper Penguin throwbacks rocked when Cups were poppin on the regular.  Pittsburgh Gold put on the posterior of Pascal (Dupuis) and Paul (Martin) like back in the period of Pietrangelo and Paek. Professionals in the Penguin office were prepared to be persuaded by public pushes for previous era threads.  These punks aint impersonating.  West Penn put your palms toward planes!  Past is present in P-Burgh.

PS how long til these are their regular unis? I give it a year.

PPS: Saigon aint got shit on me:

J Keks Doesn’t Play Baby Games

By Trapp


CBJ forward and leading scorer from last year, Ryan Johansen, is in a fuckin showdown regarding his contract situation with upper management. Johansen had one good year in the final year of his entry level contract and now he thinks he’s sittin first class like Don Johnson. CBJ GM Jarmo Kekalainen had a few choice words for Johansen as training camp opens.

“Our success is going to come from being a team, not a bunch of individuals or stars, or whatever,” Kekalainen told Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch “We’re not a star-studded team. To me it’s huge that you go through training camp together and get ready.”

John Davidson, the team’s director of hockey operations, and general manager Jarmo Kekalainen separately said “enough is enough” after what they contended were offers of $6 million for two years, $32 million for six and $46 million over eight years were refused by the restricted free agent centre.

CBJ and Co., seem pretty content on moving forward into training camp without their leading scorer.

Also me and Doud drank with him at the Flying Puck.
