The Time has Come

Yes, the Penguins are back and the full training camp begins on 9/16. This week the Penguins made a classy move again this year by havivng the players deliver some of the season tickets. Sadly, UPS delivered mine. The team seems to be ready and in good spirits after the short summer, after our disappointing loss, which we must all put behind us. A new season brings many new possibilites. The losses of Ryan Malone, Gary Roberts, George Laraque and others will be felt, but with the guys coming up from the minors and the off-season acquisitons, the team seems to be set for another great season. Ryan Whitney's inability to begin the season following foot surgery will also be felt and as much as many complained about him and his game, many will realize the contributions he made. I will have updates throughout camp as things develop. Are we ready for some hockey? I know I am. Let's Go Pens!
