Penguins Trade Talk and More

pp0487 Fresh off losing top-line forward Pascal Dupuis, and an ugly home-and-home sweep at the hands of the New York Islanders, the once infallible Pittsburgh Penguins are now left searching for answers. The Penguins already had a top-six forward vacancy alongside Evgeni Malkin , and now with Dupuis out, things have gotten more…concerning. In my las [...]

Penguins Thoughts Part 1: Forwards

pp0457 The Penguins have recently changed their forward combinations to a more evenly balanced setup. Some of the changes I wholeheartedly agree with while others, I feel, aren’t being handled properly. Let’s get straight to the point. Patric Hornqvist’s Move to Evgeni Malkin’s Wing. Earlier in the week I wrote a full article detailing why the Pengu [...]

Ex-Penguins Update: November 2, 2014

00ppfront Here’s a quick glance at how former Penguins are faring throughout the NHL. Stats include games played through Saturday, November 1, 2014. (more…)

Penguins Report Card

00ppfront Few teams endured more upheaval over the summer than the Pittsburgh Penguins. In a shakeup of seismic proportions, the black and gold replaced their long-time coach and GM, allowed several key performers to depart through free-agency, and traded away a 40-goal man. It may have been worth it. While the 2014-15 NHL season is only a month old, t [...]

Penguins Update: Ivory Soap Defense Won’t Leave a Mark

pp0500 Back in the day, Ivory Soap boasted that it was so pure it wouldn’t leave a bathtub ring. As presently constructed the Penguins’ defense could make a similar claim. It won’t leave a mark. Losing rugged Robert Bortuzzo to injury certainly hasn’t helped. In his absence GM Jim Rutherford assembled a defense that’s built for the Autobahn, not NHL [...]

Video: Pascal Dupuis taken off on stretcher

00ppfront Pascal Dupuis was taken off of the ice last night in a stretcher after taking a puck to what appears to be the base of his neck. In front of the net, Dupuis is crosschecked to the ice by Alex Goligoski. While on all fours, he is hit in the back of the neck with a shot from Kris Letang. Watching a player being removed from the ice on a stretc [...]

Penguins Update: When Push Comes to Shove

00ppfront Noted philosopher and poet George Santayana once wrote, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” There’s another famous quote, one uttered by hockey legend Conn Smythe. “If you can’t beat ‘em in the alley, you can’t beat ‘em on the ice.” Don’t count the black and gold among the teams that subscribe to Smythe’s time-hon [...]

Penguins Update: Car Bomb Returns

pp0499 Daniel Carcillo’s career has come full circle. When the two-time NHL penalty king signed a tryout contact with the Penguins on September 4, he returned to the organization that drafted him over a decade ago. “He’s played with a lot of different teams,” Penguins GM Jim Rutherford said. “You wonder why that is. But at the same time, when [...]

Penguins Need Some Nasty

pp0498 I give new Penguins GM Jim Rutherford high marks for his off-season moves. Faced with dire cap constraints, he refused to overpay the team’s free agents, signed skilled defenseman Christian Ehrhoff to a bargain contact, and inked key RFAs such as Brandon Sutter and Nick Spaling to new deals. Along the way JR significantly upgraded the team’s [...]

Vandelay’s Coffee Talk with Darius Kasparaitis

pp0494 During the Sidney Crosby era, it seems that the one key component that is the cause for the numerous untimely exits from the playoffs has been a physical defenseman. The Pittsburgh Penguins have been lacking a defenseman that can change the momentum of a game or series with a single hit. They are lacking a defenseman who is willing to defend [...]
