I’m very excited about this afternoons game, I haven’t been this excited since the fifth grade picnic. It seems like forever since the Penguins last instilled new talent into the lineup. I’m not talking about call-ups from the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins, I’m talking about a good old fashioned trade. Evgeni Malkin [...]
With the trade deadline acquisitions, Ray Shero has given Dan Bylsma and staff a good problem — 7 NHL defensemen and 13 NHL forwards. Beyond the obvious increase in talent level, there are other advantages. First, it gives the bottom forwards a little extra motivation to stay on top of their game so they can remain in the lineup. It [...]
Alexei Ponikarovsky had his first practice with the Pens this morning. Any other team in the NHL bringing in one player too many would cause locker room turmoil, players would turn on players, maybe even deterioration of friendships.
Not on the Pittsburgh Penguins. Every Winger and every defenseman on the Penguins is aware that their job is i [...]
There’s every reason to believe that Alexei Ponikarovsky will get no less than an assist in tomorrow’s game vs. Dallas, but in more likelihood, he should get a goal. If you look at the stats from Wednesday and Thursday night’s games and see the plethora of folks who were traded scoring in their first game for their new team [...]
Wow, have you ever witnessed such a lopsided game that took overtime to decide? The Pens outshot the Rangers 55-16 (That’s right, I said 55), but had to come from behind to win this game in overtime. First, I must give props to Lundqvist. Though he let 5 pucks past, he made 50 saves…..50 saves! Unfortunately, Fleury made just [...]
The final 20. How teams play over the last quarter of the season is usually a solid indicator of how they will play during the playoffs. The Penguins have not played their best hockey thus far this season and they are well aware of it. Going into the playoffs with a head of steam and home ice advantage (at least in the first round) will be [...]
According to the PG, Versus has used up their allotment of exclusive broadcasts involving the Penguins for the season so tonight’s game will also be seen on FSN Pittsburgh which is great news for all of us DirecTV subscribers
Once again Ray Shero worked his magic and transformed the Pittsburgh Penguins team into a better team. That is not an easy thing to do with the NHL’s Salary Cap the Way it is, but somehow he did it again. the best part of all of Ray Shero’s moves is that he did not dismantle the Stanley Cup winning team anymore than it was dismant [...]

PITTSBURGH PENGUINS MOVES:
3/3 Pittsburgh Penguins acquire a 6th-Round 2010 draft pick from Toronto Maple Leafs for defensive prospect Chri [...]
Since there’s not much in the way of big names being traded today, I’m left to talk about the questionable moves that the Caps have made today.
7th Round draft pick to the Hurricanes for Scott Walker.
Walker will add some grit and some depth, but the guy gets hurt when the wind blows too hard. Sure the Caps only gave up a 7th roun [...]
