Three Rivers Stadium: Ten Years Later

I can still remember the morning. It was a cold winter morning in the burgh and I awoke to what I thought were bombs being dropped. It took me a second to realize what was actually going on and when I came to, I realized it was the stadium being imploded. On this day ten years ago the historic Three Rivers Stadium was imploded to the ground. The stadium opened on July 16, 1970, as the future home for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pirates, replacing their former home Forbes Field.


How to replace Malkin:
The Alexei Kovalev Reunion

With the February 28 trade deadline looming, the recent loss of Evgeni Malkin and the uncertainty of Sidney Crosby, the Penguins are going to need to make a move if they truly want to be legitimate Stanley Cup contenders. The Penguins are currently 4th in the Eastern Conference with 74 points only 3 points behind the Flyers. The Penguins have won the first 4 out of 5 without Crosby and Malkin on the ice. However, that is not going to be good enough to bring the Cup back to the Burgh.

The Penguins are going to need to make a move to help stabilize and spark the offense.  In my opinion, Jordan Staal can’t carry the offensive load on his shoulders. He has great skills but being a high power offensive attacker just isn’t his game. Dupuis, Kennedy, and Kunitz all have the ability to score, yet their all more of role players and the same type of player that needs a star on the ice to help elevate their games. Even before Malkin went down with his injury I was calling for a trade to bring in some more offensive fire power.

So let’s take a look at some potential trade partners that could help weather the storm until Crosby gets back and help the Pens make a push for another Stanley Cup.

The 2010 Pittsburgh Steelers Grades


The Pittsburgh Steelers began the season without their franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger due to his four game suspension. In Ben’s place the burden was bestowed upon veterans Byron Leftwhich, Charlie Batch, and the young Dennis Dixon. Many believed that without Ben the Steelers season would be an inevitable failure. However, the platoon of quarterbacks weathered the storm and was able to start the season with a 3-1 record.
