My thoughts on the preseason opener: http://letsgopens.com/camp_reports.php?id=59 Thursday, September 23, 2010 12:05:41 AM via web

Franzer, Franzen, Tomay-to, Tomah-to... Wednesday, September 22, 2010 10:17:59 PM via mobile web
Wasn't Franzer the guy that all but knocked Sid out of Gm 7 w/ a knee to thigh hit? How's that saying about karma go again? Wednesday, September 22, 2010 10:16:31 PM via mobile web
Also, getting from front row of 224 to 5th was pretty painless. Lots of steps though. ;) Wednesday, September 22, 2010 10:06:55 PM via mobile web
Maybe it was just 1st game excitement, but it got really loud inside CEC if anyone is wondering. Wednesday, September 22, 2010 10:04:10 PM via mobile web
Impressed w/ Sterling's game. Went into traffic, didn't shy away from contact, worked hard on backcheck. Wednesday, September 22, 2010 9:57:20 PM via mobile web
Parking at Mariott now $20. Was $12. Ouch. Wednesday, September 22, 2010 9:16:13 PM via mobile web
I wouldn't mind if they lowered the volume on the PA mic a touch. Just sayin'... Wednesday, September 22, 2010 9:00:04 PM via mobile web
1st wave at CEC... Wednesday, September 22, 2010 8:42:37 PM via mobile web
Liking Bortuzzo's game so far. Tangradi hasn't been bad, but not very noticeable either. Wednesday, September 22, 2010 8:39:01 PM via mobile web
Ryan Craig = Dark Horse? Was a solid player in TB before injuries. Wednesday, September 22, 2010 8:35:50 PM via mobile web
Pens down to 5 D, missing their most experienced guy. Big opportunity for guys to step up, esp 58. Wednesday, September 22, 2010 8:12:38 PM via mobile web
71 launches a mile-long pass to spring Comrie. 19 can't quite corral it. Wednesday, September 22, 2010 7:40:38 PM via mobile web
Pens dominating shots, goals, pretty much everything at the moment. Wednesday, September 22, 2010 7:32:51 PM via mobile web
58s pass to 87 on the goal was a thing of beauty. Wednesday, September 22, 2010 7:30:57 PM via mobile web
HCDB PP dominating on 1st try. Puck movement has been incredible early. Wednesday, September 22, 2010 7:23:30 PM via mobile web
Moment of silence for John Barbero before anthem. RIP John. Wednesday, September 22, 2010 7:19:07 PM via mobile web
Remaining players practice in two groups at 11:15 and 12:30. None of today's sessions are open to the public (boo!) or I'd be there... Wednesday, September 22, 2010 7:48:10 AM via web
Everyone playing tonight supposedly hits the ice for practice at 10am; look for full details on the lineup to start coming out around then. Wednesday, September 22, 2010 7:46:21 AM via web

A rare day off for the Pens during camp today. Rest up for Detroit tomorrow night, boys! Tuesday, September 21, 2010 10:09:36 AM via web

Day 3 thoughts here: http://letsgopens.com/camp_reports.php?id=58 Monday, September 20, 2010 5:17:39 PM via web
While walking back to the parking lot, I noticed the Igloo is surrounded by chain link fence. Love the CEC, but still a sad sight. Monday, September 20, 2010 4:03:13 PM via web
...if it looks like that now, it must dominate come playoff time. Monday, September 20, 2010 3:50:18 PM via web
Watching Brett Sterling vid on team's site. He had 2 goals today, but his beard should get him on the time if nothing else... Monday, September 20, 2010 3:49:55 PM via web
...anticipating camp being open to the public all week just like the past 11 seasons I've been going. Still not sure why the change... Monday, September 20, 2010 3:48:34 PM via web
If anyone w/ media credentials needs an assistant for any remaining practices this week, I'm available. Took the whole week off... Monday, September 20, 2010 3:47:28 PM via web
Good on HCDB for not going w/ the bare minimum for Wednesdays lineup. Looking forward to the game a little bit more now! Monday, September 20, 2010 3:33:33 PM via web

For anyone wondering, I survived. The drive home took a bit longer than usual. Feeling a quart low, but am otherwise fine. =) Monday, September 20, 2010 3:31:14 PM via web
No longer watching practice; waiting in line to donate blood. First timer here. Monday, September 20, 2010 12:40:59 PM via mobile web

Most of the big names are at the far end of the ice. Monday, September 20, 2010 11:46:36 AM via mobile web
Then a 3rd fwd atacks from neutral zone, so 3 1on1s in rapid sucession. Strait looking good, really physical. Monday, September 20, 2010 11:45:33 AM via mobile web
Dman starts of w/ fwd in slot. F chips into corner and they play to whistle. Another fwd starts out of corner. Go to whistle. Monday, September 20, 2010 11:44:09 AM via mobile web
Walker and Petersen skating w/ Brown, I think. He is normally in Group B. Monday, September 20, 2010 11:29:37 AM via mobile web
Strait paired up w/ Bortuzzo. Barring one of them making a suprise run, that could be the top pair in WB. Monday, September 20, 2010 11:28:09 AM via mobile web
Vitale w/ Conner and Godard. Monday, September 20, 2010 11:25:26 AM via mobile web

71 picks off a Johnson pass, can't quite connect on pass to Comrie (I think) Monday, September 20, 2010 10:45:52 AM via mobile web
Near the end of the last half, a ref skated right into 87s path. He looked pretty disguted. Monday, September 20, 2010 10:43:52 AM via mobile web
Brent Johnson in net at the far end. Don't know who played 1st half, but he gave up 2 goals to Sterling. Monday, September 20, 2010 10:41:59 AM via mobile web
Fleury replaces Pechurskiy at the half. Monday, September 20, 2010 10:40:48 AM via mobile web
Tangradi still w/ malkin and Comrie. Monday, September 20, 2010 10:40:03 AM via mobile web

Letang gets into it w/ Godard a bit. Comrie steps in between them. Monday, September 20, 2010 10:38:20 AM via mobile web
A lot different in here today... Darker, very few people around. Monday, September 20, 2010 10:37:22 AM via mobile web

Day 2 thoughts: http://letsgopens.com/camp_reports.php?id=57 Sunday, September 19, 2010 5:36:57 PM via web
...and set up Dustin Jeffrey's goal, not TK as announced. Relieved my sight isn't so bad that I can't keep 48 and 12 straight. =) Sunday, September 19, 2010 3:31:21 PM via web
It really makes no difference, but per the recap of the scrimmage on the Pens' site, it was Brett Sterling that picked off that lazy pass... Sunday, September 19, 2010 3:29:24 PM via web
That's about it for today. Unsure about tomorrow. Stay tuned. Sunday, September 19, 2010 1:27:53 PM via mobile web
87 went onehanded, passed his stick to his other hans, behind the back, took the pass and roofed it. Sunday, September 19, 2010 1:26:03 PM via mobile web
They go non-stop for 3-5 passes. On last puck, Granato tied up Sid's stick. Sunday, September 19, 2010 1:25:00 PM via mobile web
Designed to have them work on creating separation from defenders. As they get free, they get a pass from behind the net. Sunday, September 19, 2010 1:24:01 PM via mobile web
87 showing off at the end of practice. Doing a drill where a fwd cycles around the bottom of LW circle, taking contact from Granato. Sunday, September 19, 2010 1:22:01 PM via mobile web
Took a few laps around the building in search of a stand w/ bottled RC and something other than nachos or popcorn. Was not successful. Sunday, September 19, 2010 12:38:08 PM via mobile web
Phil Bourque on Tangradi: "He looked fine, but I was hoping to see more.". Tune into 105.9 HD2 to listen; think they are live until noon. Sunday, September 19, 2010 11:27:48 AM via mobile web
Forward combos for this group appear unchanged from yesterday. Sunday, September 19, 2010 11:23:03 AM via mobile web

Malkin is now 1 for 1 on draws in this camp. 100%. Sunday, September 19, 2010 10:33:00 AM via mobile web
Sterling sets Jeffrey up again. Couldn't quite get separation from the D though. Sunday, September 19, 2010 10:31:35 AM via mobile web
Assist was announced as TK. If I think 48 looks like 12, I need more sleep... Sunday, September 19, 2010 10:28:07 AM via mobile web
Sterling picks off a lazy pass, dished to Jeffrey. He splits the D and dekes Modig. Beauty! Sunday, September 19, 2010 10:26:41 AM via mobile web

Fleury and Modig to start. Sunday, September 19, 2010 10:11:39 AM via mobile web
Jeffrey snipes one by Killeen at the end of the warmup. He's by no means a lock, but I think he's underrated by a lot of Penguin fans. Sunday, September 19, 2010 10:09:51 AM via mobile web
Fleury is out here after all. 3 goalies on one team for a 2 period scrimmage. Sunday, September 19, 2010 10:07:58 AM via mobile web

Zamboni time... Then it's time for B vs. C. Talbot's group vs. Malkin's. Sunday, September 19, 2010 9:50:44 AM via mobile web
...then a whistle blows and everyone has to skate to the other end and keep going for another 30-60 or so. Sunday, September 19, 2010 9:48:47 AM via mobile web
2on2s at both ends now. Coaches have them go for 30 seconds or so... Sunday, September 19, 2010 9:47:24 AM via mobile web

Snagged a spot at the top of 111 today. Not quite the same as the old "LGP press box" but a pretty good spot nonetheless. Sunday, September 19, 2010 9:19:25 AM via mobile web
Just got to CEC... Crowd looks even bigger than yesterday. Sunday, September 19, 2010 8:56:56 AM via mobile web

Brief recap of today's session: http://www.letsgopens.com/camp_reports.php?id=56 Saturday, September 18, 2010 5:15:43 PM via web
Last session of the day is winding down... Hope to do this again tomorrow. Saturday, September 18, 2010 1:20:53 PM via mobile web
Sneep is a 1st year pro, so you'd think Potter and Wagner would be ahead of him. Saturday, September 18, 2010 1:05:55 PM via mobile web
5 d-men is this group, so no set pairings, but Martin-Letang figure to be 1st or 2nd pair once the season starts. Saturday, September 18, 2010 1:02:22 PM via mobile web
Nick Johnson and Ryan Schnell are the remaing forwards in this group. Saturday, September 18, 2010 12:59:33 PM via mobile web
Jeffrey working w/ Sterling and TK. Saturday, September 18, 2010 12:54:40 PM via mobile web

29 throws puck at 71. Crowd approves. =) Saturday, September 18, 2010 12:47:43 PM via mobile web
29 tried to pick 71 behind the net. 71 knocks him over. 29 falls, loses his stick, but scrambles to cover puck. Saturday, September 18, 2010 12:46:55 PM via mobile web
Moved down to 114... Little easier to tell who's who from here. Saturday, September 18, 2010 12:44:38 PM via mobile web
Looks like I was right. Just a practice session, but still a good opportunity for Tangradi. Saturday, September 18, 2010 12:28:41 PM via mobile web
Can't tell for sure, but looks like 71 is out there w/ Comrie and Tangradi... Saturday, September 18, 2010 12:24:42 PM via mobile web
Would have hit him right between the eyes. And I'm pretty sure it was intentional. =) Saturday, September 18, 2010 12:21:45 PM via mobile web
Fleury may owe a 5 year old a new pair of underwear. He shot. Puck into the corner and nailed the glass right where the kid's face was. Saturday, September 18, 2010 12:21:21 PM via mobile web
Impossible to understate the awesomeness of the new HD video board. Saturday, September 18, 2010 11:29:14 AM via mobile web
Cooke, Asham, and Letestu? Going with the classic black. Saturday, September 18, 2010 11:26:13 AM via mobile web
Modig must be tired from pitching that shutout... Giving up some stinkers now. Saturday, September 18, 2010 11:25:04 AM via mobile web
Talbot, Adams and Rupp sporting the old school Penguins gold. Bring it back! Saturday, September 18, 2010 11:24:07 AM via mobile web
2nd practice session... No names/numbers makes it tough to tell who's who from my perch in 224. Saturday, September 18, 2010 11:22:48 AM via mobile web
Zamboni time... Saturday, September 18, 2010 10:56:57 AM via mobile web
White objected, but 87 took it. Crowd really wanted a goal, but Modig stuffed him. Preserved the 1-0 win. Saturday, September 18, 2010 10:56:36 AM via mobile web
Orpik got intefered with. Rather than take the penalty shot, Black sent 87 over the boards instead. 10:55 AM Sep 18th via mobile web
Shot was almost parallel to goal line. Looked like it was in before the D fished it out. 10:51 AM Sep 18th via mobile web
Modig sprawled but Duper was very patient and slid a bad angle shot on, just out of goalie's reach. 10:50 AM Sep 18th via mobile web
87 freed him up w/ a great pass and Duper cut across the front of the net. 10:47 AM Sep 18th via mobile web
Dupuis gets robbed. Puck looked in from here. 10:47 AM Sep 18th via mobile web
RC Cola tastes weird. Wondering if concession lady looked at me and gave me a diet instead of regular. =) 10:46 AM Sep 18th via mobile web
87 misses high glove on Modig for the second or third time today. 10:43 AM Sep 18th via mobile web
Michalek gets nailes in the corner. Got up slowly, but looks OK. 10:41 AM Sep 18th via mobile web
Rupp now out with Adams and Cooke. 10:36 AM Sep 18th via mobile web
End of 1, White leads 1-0. 10:34 AM Sep 18th via mobile web
That's twice I've seen Chris Conner beat Engelland out from behind the net. 10:33 AM Sep 18th via mobile web
