Is there any reason NOT to think the Penguins are the team to beat in the East? And if so, how much does this recent display of tremendous team toughness play into it? Phil Bourque will discuss at 1. Speaking of toughness, how about A.J. Burnett? His scowl alone is worth a couple of strikeouts a game! Bucs are 7-7, but maybe more importantly, 4-1 in this now 9 game homestand against good teams like the Reds, Cardinals, and now the Braves. Honestly was hoping for only a split. Kent Tekulve talks Pirates at 12:30. And the now :vs: the future debate continues for the Steelers, and it may impact their top pick in the draft. I'll explain. Give me a call, email, tweet or text!
Colleague Mark Madden has listed his all time Penguins tough guy team: Gary Roberts, Ulf Samuelsson, Brended Morrow, Darius Kasparaitis, Rick Tocchet, and Bob "Battleship" Kelly. Additions? Corrections?
