Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Monday Wakeup Call: Wonderful trip

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media columnist

OTTAWA — Brief and to the Point …

>> The Monday column exists entirely to praise James Neal.

Here’s some of what Sidney Crosby had to say afterward …

>> It was a wonderful trip, at least on a personal level, but I’m delighted to turn the beat work back to Rob Rossi and Josh Yohe beginning with today’s practice.

I’ll be returning to Winnipeg for the mid-February trip there.

>> We had a bunch of good stuff in Sunday’s paper, and I feel compelled to call special attention to some of it right here …

Alan Robinson rates the Steelers’ Super Bowl teams in order, with some help from several other media types, myself included. I can tell you this was fun to help with this but far more fun to read the final result.

Columnist Joe Starkey continued to open Steven Adams’ door at Pitt.

How recruiting can affect a high school kid’s parents, by Kevin Gorman.

And back to the Penguins’ front, Sergei Gonchar’s future was weighed by Rossi.

>> I’ll be decompressing most of the day. (The trip was nice, but seven flights on Honey I Shrunk the Plane Airlines can wear on a guy.)

The blog folks will continue to work on tailoring this update, so by all means, feel free to leave input here in the comments. They’ll be seen.
