Photo by Tim Bradbury/ It’s tough to predict a surprise - well hello there John Marino Back last July we looked ahead to the 2019-20 season, and since the NHL’s regular season is almost certainly completed due to the near-worldwide distancing due to the COVID-19 virus, why not look back at that to see what happened? By definition, a surprise isn’t something you see coming. So it’s tough to forecast the unpredictable, otherwise it could be predicted. Our candidates listed for being a pleasant surprise were: Alex Galchenyuk, Dominik Kahun, Jared McCann and Matt Murray. Potential...

Photo by Bruce Bennett Studios via Studios/ Remember these players? Sure you do. While the 2019-20 NHL season remains on hold am going to spend my Tuesday’s sharing random stories or pieces of hockey memorabilia that I own. This is story time with Gretz.

Despite that, there is still one piece of hockey merchandise from my teenage years that is hanging in my basement bar that has several of autographs on it. Random autographs. Very random autographs.

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports A look at where the Pens might be if the NHL season wasn’t paused due to the coronavirus How would the Penguins be looking right now in a world where there was no COVID-19 epidemic and life was more “normal”? It’s a trivial thought given the gravity and seriousness of the world at large, but hey, this is a hockey blog that is for trivial thoughts and distractions. The Athletic’s Dom Luszczyszyn has been using his model to simulate games and Pittsburgh was sitting at 47-24-7 with 101 points. Yesterday would have been a Pittsburgh-Philadelphia...

The 5 weirdest Pittsburgh Penguins injuries/maladies ever

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports Sunburns, mumps, weight training accidents, getting hurt celebrating a goal — this team has dealt with it all To be a Pittsburgh Penguins fan or player is to know pain, joy and tremendous highs and lows.
