Penguins Update: The Life Cycle of Champions

Following Other Rick’s terrific series of articles grading the Penguins’ individual performances over the past season and playoffs, I decided to take a more reflective look at where we are as a team. Or “where we’re at” in classic Pittsburgh-ese.

I’ll start by quoting the Holy Bible. The author of Ecclesiastes wrote, For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven…a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted…a time to break down, and a time to build up.

So it is with championship teams.
