If There Was No Salary Cap In The NHL

from Kevin Allen of USA TODAY, With Mike Trout nearing a new professional sports high with $426.5 million deal over 12 years with the Angels, it is interesting to wonder where NHL salaries would be for top stars without a salary cap. “I’d say in excess of $20 million for sure,” said Brisson who represents several stars, including Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby. Agent Alan Walsh said in a free market system “franchise players would be making upwards of $25 million per season." “Whi...

Hurricanes Outlast Penguins – Mrazek Perfect in Shootout

RALEIGH, N.C. — Dougie Hamilton scored in the shootout, Petr Mrazek stopped Pittsburgh cold and the Carolina Hurricanes beat the Penguins 3-2 on Tuesday night.

HVS Market Pulse: Pittsburgh’s Transformation | By Dinaker Mallya & Jerod Byrd

Historically referred to as the "Gateway of the West," Pittsburgh has long been known as the hub for coal mining and steel production; however, the city represents much more than that. It has been gentrified over the years to provide over 90 neighborhoods, full of local art and flavor, with an impressive impact from the education, financial, healthcare, high-tech, research, and manufacturing fields. Many tech startups are calling Pittsburgh home, with Carnegie Mellon and the University of...

Roethlisberger's backup says Big Ben didn't fumble on purpose in disputed 2014 play

Much has been made of the divorce between the Pittsburgh Steelers and stars Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell this offseason. Brown forced a trade to the Oakland Raiders while Bell left for the New York Jets in free agency following a season-long holdout as both departed Pittsburgh on bitter terms. While the two are superb talents, they're also outspoken and prone to off-field headlines that are believed to have irked management and conflicted with the concept of Steelers culture.

Former churches turned into bars

Historic churches are already some of the most gorgeous structures in the world. Recently, a select few have been turned into something even more beautiful — bars. Don’t worry, it’s not sacrilegious. These churches have been deconsecrated, so they’re simply regular buildings with stunning architectural designs at this point. The conversion is a win-win for both the churches and the bars. Official estimates list the number of church closures at around 4,000 a year, and new tenets are keeping ...

Trump Ignores ‘Gathering Momentum’ Of Far-Right Violence Worldwide

In the immediate aftermath of the Christchurch mosque attacks, President Donald Trump said only a “small group of people that have very, very serious problems” adhere to white nationalist ideology. But experts who study far-right extremism say that the Trump administration is ignoring the clear and present danger posed by racist violence. Though inadequate and inconsistent tracking of these crimes makes it more difficult to accurately assess them, experts told TPM, the numbers that do exist s...
