Did Arizona quarterback Jacob Chicheron cancel a deal with the Columbus Blue Jackets during the 2022 National Hockey League draft? There is word leaked that he did it, or at least a deal was very imminent. The Women’s World Championship is set to face Team USA against Team Canada, as it should be. Team USA won five of the last six, but lost in 2021, so it’s time for revenge. After JT Miller put pen to paper, Vancouver became abuzz. Is Bo Horvat next? And we’ve got an old-fashioned debate here at PHN, where I assure the Penguins of Pittsburgh have to pay Tristan Gary – now.
It should be illegal for rainy forecasts on the Labor Day holiday. Maybe later today, I’ll bring my umbrella and apply for a loan to Ribfest at Acrisure Stadium.

Pittsburgh Hockey Now: Dave Molinari wisely saw that the Penguins could hold off and wait until next summer to pay Gary; See how he handles the 2023 qualifiers. I have no doubts. Here’s the fully developed counterpoint – if you wait, you pay Tristan Garry more.

It was the night of the Pirates Hall of Fame, as the organization entered 19 players into the team’s inaugural Hall of Fame class. It is set against the backdrop of a constantly horrible team under the direction of owner Bob Notting. As John Perrotto wrote, the Hoovers (at least the few living who were present) did their best to ignore the distraction that represented the 30-year failure of Pittsburgh Pirates.
My point – 19 in one go? Why not do five a year? Or spread out postmortem inductions throughout the season. Many recruits played 100 years ago and died long ago. It would have been a more focused and nuanced party if the Buccaneers had included Willie Stargill, Dave Parker, Roberto Clemente, and Steve Blass instead of twenty (maybe he’s added Danny Murtaugh to that list since he ran the 1971 team).
They left no room for discussion, debate or an expected class for 2023. Next year could be the 1991-1992 class of players like Doug Drabeek, Bobby Bonilla and Andy van Slick. Never Never Never Never #24. Shame on the game, take so many PEDs, and watch from a distance forever. This is the only penalty left to be distributed.
