Going into trade deadline day today you would be hard pressed to find a deeper roster than that of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Their first two lines could fill an All-Star team. Penguins GM Ray Shero added yet another player to the Penguins and once again did it without losing a roster player only a conditional 6th or 7th round pick.

It’s funny how history works. If the Penguins didn’t go on to win the Stanley Cup in the 1990-91 season, most Pittsburgh Penguin fans wouldn’t be familiar with “The Save” that Frank Pietrangelo made that turned the playoffs around. If the Pittsburgh Pirates didn’t have a defensive lapse in the ninth inning [...]
In the biggest craziest trade shock I can remember, Ray Shero just re-united the tandem that led the Canadian Hockey team to the gold medal in Vancouver 2010. Yes, Ray Shero pulled the rug out from under Boston and landed the 2013 trade deadlines biggest prize.

That is of course if the media has correctly speculated he has a shoulder injury or a head injury. Both of those injuries take more than just a few weeks to heal correctly and both of those injuries are injuries that could a [...]
When Steve Sullivan hightailed it out of Pittsburgh in the offseason the search for a winger to compliment Evgeni Malkin and James Neal took off. Tangradi failing to make his mark kickstarted rumors of big trades for players such as Iginla, Kessel and others.
In the middle of all the trade hoopla stands a 23-year-old 14th overall pick. A guy [...]
The Penguins picked 23 year old Carolina Hurricanes Left Winger Zack Boychuk off of waivers today. Boychuk was a first round 14th overall pick in the 2008 entry draft.
