Can You Believe It's Been Almost FOUR Years, Ladies?!!!

Oh my goodness!!  How time flies and so much has happened ... so much great hockey news that I've missed on this blog.

I've found my motivation once again and I'm hoping it lasts a while, so I can work on something that's been a passion of mine for quite some time.  I'm hoping I haven't lost my great followers either and that you've just been in hibernation with me until I decided to take up the blog again!

With so much great news that I've missed, all I can do is start fresh and cover things from here on out.   I hope you're as excited as I am, ladies!!  ENJOY and visit often ... keep me motivated, ladies!! ;)

Adorable Sheary Remains a Penguin

I'm not sure about any of you, but this signing is one that I have been waiting patiently for!

As with many Pens fans, Conor Sheary has become another favorite of mine being one of the few who can keep his own on a line with our Captain.  The kid is small, but strong on many levels and, combined with Sid (and Rusty, super rookie Guentzel or whoever else they decide to throw on the line), a power-packed punchto the opposition.

Unfortunately, as with defenseman Brian Dumoulin who was recently signed long-term by the Pens and shares an agent with Sheary, he could not come to terms on a contract with Pittsburgh which landed them in arbitration.  UPDATE:  apparently the Pens and Sheary worked out a deal before it went to arbitration even though it was set for arbitration.

It was announced today that the two parties agreed to a three-year deal worth $9 million.  That is quite a hefty contract which isn't far from what Sheary was originally asking ($4 million).  And he'll be needing every penny of that money with his upcoming wedding to longtime girlfriend and lucky lady, Jordan Sullivan, on August 18, 2018.

I'm pretty sure you ladies will agree with me, it's good to know we'll be seeing this cutie for another three years on the ice in a Pens uniform!!

Let's Talk Taylor Pyatt

Taylor Pyatt - the newest hottie, um I mean member, of the Pittsburgh Penguins and obviously a very good reason for me to come out of my hibernation from HftL!!  Just look at those mesmerizing eyes of his!!! ;)

For those who are new to HftL, those regulars who need a memory jogger, or those who would just like to read it over again, HftL featured Pyatt as a "Western Conference Hottie" back when he was with the Vancouver Canucks (THANKS to Kena!) - CLICK HERE TO READ.

His NHL career began in 1999 after being selected in the first round (eighth overall) of the NHL draft by the New York Islanders.  Since then he's played for the Buffalo Sabres, Vancouver Canucks, Phoenix Coyotes, and New York Rangers.

He's a big body on the ice at 6'4" and 230 pounds (with a sexy deep voice to match ;) ) that allows him to be exceptional at finishing his checks and good in the corners mucking and grinding for those loose pucks.  Kinda reminds you of a certain former Penguin player named Jordan Staal.  That's not the only thing the two have in common as they both hail from Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada (there must be something in the air up there!).

Even at the young age of 32, Pyatt is unfortunately no stranger to tragedy.  Back in 2009, he tragically lost his fiancĂ©e, Carly Bragnalo, in a car accident while vacationing with her family in Jamaica just four months before the wedding.  A few years later, Pyatt opened up about the incident in a touching article, DUTHIE: COYOTES' TAYLOR PYATT DISCUSSES TRAGIC ACCIDENT.

And that's Taylor Pyatt in a nutshell - a great addition to the Penguins, but I have a feeling we'll definitely be talking a lot more about him here on HftL!!  In the meantime, you can add your own thoughts and observations in the comments - you know HftL LOVES your input!!! :)

It's A Girl ... Welcome Estelle Fleury!!

FINALLY!!!  The much-anticipated baby of Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury has arrived!!  Welcome little Estelle Fleury!!!  She was born sometime in the afternoon or evening this past Friday.  THANKS to all of you who kept me updated with your comments and emails!! :)

There had been some confusion last week as to if she was born or not (because there was a tweet that started mass buzz about her arrival when it only talked of the baby girl's name).

Apparently, the baby girl was clost to 10 pounds (I can only imagine since Veronique is so tiny!) and she doesn't have Fleury's teeth (and that's straight from the new daddy's mouth!)!!

Marc-Andre and Veronique Fleury to Welcome Baby SOON!!

As you all may know, Marc-Andre Fleury and his wife, Veronique, are expecting their first child any day now (she is due this month).

There have been "conflicting" reports as to her status, but what is known is that Fleury did not make the trip to Ottawa with the team for tonight's game.

Different reports say that she IS "in labor" while another says she's not in labor, but she's close to giving birth while yet another says that Fleury is home for the birth of his child, so as you can see I'm not quite sure what's going on, but it sounds like it could be soon.

Stay tuned, ladies, as you all KNOW that I will keep you posted for sure!! ;)

Did You See This Pic?

That's how the conversation started, innocently enough ... Kena (YES - THAT Kena ... remember her?  The previous WCH writer???!!!!).  Anyway, Kena texted me this pic and simply asked, "did you see this pic?"

Well, have any of YOU seen this pic??  Let's see how many of you react like I did and how many react like Kena did ...


James Neal (I think - LOL!) welcoming newest Penguins defenseman, Douglas Murray


Stephanie: "No ... LOL!!"
Kena: "Sweet, huh."
S: If you're referring to Nealy's ass ... YES, SWEET!!!  Sweet Jesus!!
K: Ha ha.  You recognize him from just his ass?  I'm impressed!  Ha ha ha ha ... Poor Sid ...

... CONVERSATION continues ...

K: Although, I have now been made aware of Neal's ass, I will be pre-occupied for a while.  Lol
S: HAH!!

So, ladies, what caught YOUR eye in that pic??  Responses are welcome in the comments ... we'd love to hear from you!!!  You just GOTTA LOVE Under Armor!!! : D
