E. Staal, Lidstrom named ASG captains

Brendan Shanahan, the NHL's VP of hockey and business development, talks to PuckDaddy about the All-Star Game format, the players' concern of Sid's health, and a neat little Lemieux story.

Winter Classic Photos - Updated Edition

Some of the photos I've gone through are out on Picasa. I'll probably do a proper post sometime after we get home and I've had time to go through the rest. Tough loss but what an event.

Details of Lemieux Statue Surface

Some key points from Rossi's article: -A California artist is working on the statue, hopefully to be dedicated sometime in 2011. -It will capture Lemiex circa 88-89, splitting a pair of unidentified Islanders defenders. -Members of the Pens ownership group are paying for the statue as a gift to Mario. -The statue will rest at the front of Trib Total Media Gate along Fifth Avenue. (The last point is odd because the Trib gate is along Centre Ave not Fifth, but it seems to make more sense for it to be there rather than at the American Eagle Gate.)

Lemieux to skate in Winter Classic alumni game

I think I would rather watch this game than the All-Star game!

Pittsburgh Ownership War Heats Up

Not really sure what to think of this article (validity, ect.), but if this is really going on, it's very interesting...Interesting in the sense that the Pens have only one Stanley Cup in the 17 straight years the Bucs have been a sub .500 team. Wouldn't they technically have two since then though (if you don't count this season)? Either way, it doesn't matter, the argument is still ridiculous...We've been knocked out of the playoffs 4 out of the past 5 years! Think about that...15 out of 16 teams are knocked out every post season. That little stat is very misleading.

Be part of the Mario Mosaic

You can reserve your place in Pittsburgh’s new Consol Energy Center and help Mario give others a chance to win! For just a $66.00 donation to the Mario Lemieux Foundation, your photograph, combined with thousands of others, will create a 20’ x 8’ Mario Mosaic that pays tribute to the career of Pittsburgh Penguins hockey legend and Hall-of-Famer, Mario Lemieux. The mosaic will be displayed in the main lobby of the new Consol Energy Center, allowing the general public to view the mosaic during regular business hours free of charge! Most importantly, your tax-deductible donation will support Mario’s greatest passion – giving back to the community through the Mario Lemieux Foundation’s cancer research projects and Austin’s Playroom Project.

Mario Lemieux to be knighted

At 11:21 this morning the Pittsburgh Penguins official site announced Mario Lemieux will be knighted on June 17 by The National Order of Quebec. As Sam Kasan points out, it will soon be Sir Mario Lemieux. Sir Magnifique? Sir Buries It? Meh, might as well stick with the real name.

Mt. Pensmore

The team: Sidney Crosby, Jaromir Jagr, Mario Lemieux and Evgeni Malkin. The theory: Lemieux (690 goals) and Jagr (439 goals) are the two obvious selections here. Don't give me any anti-Jagr sentiment, Pittsburgh! In terms of conservative talent projections, and assuming they fulfill their long-term contracts, Crosby and Malkin should fulfill Rushmore status. I'm looking forward to hearing from Pens fans. Will they put Tom Barrasso on their Mt. Rushmore? Ron Francis? -John Buccigross-
