Dan’s Daily: No Fleury Reunion, Penguins Explode, Former Pen Dating Sarah Palin



Pittsburgh Penguins, NHL trade, Marc-Andre Fleury

The Pittsburgh Penguins exploded for three unanswered goals, including the OT game-winner. Sidney Crosby scored his 500th goal, his parents got a raucous ovation, and the PPG Paints Arena crowd was silly loud. That much you know. The rest of the hockey world kept spinning, too. The Washington Capitals are fishing for a forward in the NHL trade pond, Vegas Golden Knights GM Kelly McCrimmon flattened Marc-Andre Fleury trade talk, and Slovakia upset Team USA.

And, a former Penguin is dating Sarah Palin. Oh dear lord, I don’t want to read the comments today…

PHN+: The Penguins report card–Get the player grades and the chalkboard. It was sloppy, energetic, frenetic, mystifying, exciting, and, ultimately, the Pittsburgh Penguins won.

Crosby scored goal No. 500. It was in front of his parents, who had been living out of a suitcase to see it. Shelly Anderson has the story about Sidney Crosby.

Philly: The view from Philly. The Penguins won, but the Philadelphia Flyers blew a late two-goal lead.

NHL Trade Chatter, News & National Hockey Now

Vegas Review-Journal: Not long after an NHL trade rumor/report exploded on Twitter that the Vegas Golden Knights called about re-acquiring Marc-Andre Fleury, Vegas GM Kelly McCrimmon went public to say, an emphatic, “No…”

Washington: Oh, you pesky Caps. With trade partners out west, the Washington Capitals are fishing on the NHL trade market.

Sportsnet: The 32 Thoughts–much about the Montreal Canadiens, Tyler Toffoli trade and what it means.

Boston: Seriously, no medal for Team USA? I did say Slovakia was a dark horse but darn it. They beat Team USA Wednesday morning. No medal for the USA.

NYI: Freeeee–free fallin’. The Penguins will not have to worry about Barry Trotz in the 2022 NHL playoffs. The Buffalo Sabres were the latest team to beat the New York Islanders.

NY Post: Former New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins forward, Ron Duguay, meet Sarah Palin. She seems to like the athletes. The pair are dating...

If there’s a reality show coming, I’m done. Out. Off the planet. Vaya con Dios.

Colorado: Terry Frei slams the Vegas Golden Knights for “Kucherov’ing” Mark Stone to get a leg up on the Colorado Avalanche.

I’m not sure, but I think this keyboard coined the verb “Kucherov,” or at very least I helped push it.

San Jose: And…the Arizona Coyotes were burned by an AHL team. The San Jose Barracuda AHL team put them on a spit and roasted them via Twitter.

I think the Court just did, rejecting her lawsuit against the New York Times.

(Does Duguay still have his long fuzzy hair??)

Here’s a novel idea. The NEW TEMP GM of the Chicago Blackhawks actually likes where the young team is headed. Not only that, he’s looking at the board Stan Bowman left him and he’s hoping Mr fleury will be willing to stick with a team that wanted him. Not tried to get rid of him. After all, we do have a few Stanley Cup winners still on the ice for at least 1 more season.
