Help please %-) Penguin's fans :)

Hi guys!, I have few questions to you, and i need help.

1) A new player Penguins - Tanner Glass, this season will be played with the number 10.
Which former Penguin worn (use?) that number and where he is currently playing?


2) The Penguins have a new goalkeeper in the coming campaign, which has become a Flower's backup.
Vokoun will play is wearing the number 92nd.
Write down why and why he chose this particular number.?


Thanks for all answers. [Sorry, my english language is not good ; (]

I think Mark Letestu was the last penguin to wear #10. He is currently playing for Columbus.

As for Vokoun, I would imagine it has something to do with Fleury already having the #29 he's usually used, so he just flipped the numbers to #92.

next questions


1) One of the favorite slogans Penguins, which are also seen in the CONSOL Energy Center, said, "It's a great day for hockey." Write who is the author of these words, and how inscribed in the history of the Penguins (most popular event). ?

2) In the season 1974/1975 Penguins have one of the best point lines* in the NHL. Write name for this line, replace the names of the players (and write, who played the center position) and write how many total goals 'enrolled in their's account'* (remember: this is the season of 1974/1975).

* - i'am not sure this translate

1. Badger Bob Johnson
2. Syl Apps, center; Lowell MacDonald, LW; Jean Pronovost, RW. 100 goals or so, hence "century line".

The team had 9 20-goal scorers that year that ended in ignominy and, afterward, near-bankruptcy. Best of times watching them score and worst of times watching Billy Smith shut them out in Game 7.

ok guys, last questions

1) Captain, one of the league's best players, gold medalist from Vancouver. Write as was EXACTLY years, months and days had Sidney Crosby, when he wear sweatshirt with "C" on the front.

2) sells candies, but they are not as cute as it may seem - this is the Candy Man. Mr. Orpik is also pretty original name - what the story is with this related?

3) What is the name and who is the son of first PPG shooter in the history of the LAK?

1. Crosby was 19 years, 297 days old when he was named captain.

2. Brooks Orpiks nick name comes from his ability to lure opponents into a position where he can hit them. "Free Candy" is in reference to child predators who would lure children with the promise of "Free Candy" Yes, we are weird.

3. I have no idea.

I thought Orpik's name came from a photoshop on Let's Go Pens that had Orpik's scary headshot in a "non consensual sex van" with "free candy" scratched into the side of it...? No?

And what's the implication of the van? Also who would "free candy" attract to the van? You are perfectly correct but I removed the need for someone to draw conclusions.

What is this for, if you don't mind me asking? Do you have a teacher who happens to be a Penguins fan?

Jarrko Ruutuu actually came up with the "free candy" reference during the 08 SC Finals after Orpik delivered a couple big hits in the same shift. Here's a link to the shift and Ruutuu talking about it.
