With Doug Murray acquisition, Ray Shero announces, “We’re going for the Cup this yea...

pp0342 As he did with two of his previous acquisitions, Ray Shero did not wait for the NHL’s trade deadline day to improve the Penguins’ roster.  Like both the Chris Kunitz and James Neal deals, Shero acted while the rest of the NHL GMs were busy preparing for the April 3rd trade deadline.  Yesterday, it was the trade for Brenden Morrow [...]

Penguins Update: Shero Paves the Way for a Stanley Cup

shero2 Say this about Penguins GM Ray Shero. He sure doesn’t wait for an invitation to join the party. In a pair of bold moves that preempted the NHL’s April 3 trade deadline by over a week, Shero acquired two missing pieces to the Pens’ Stanley Cup puzzle. On Sunday he swapped defensive prospect Joe Morrow and a 5th round pick in the 2013 Entry Dra [...]

Now that the Penguins have Brenden Morrow, what to do with him?

1images When Ray Shero sat down to do the math involved in trying to decide who to acquire for the Penguins stretch drive to the playoffs, it didn’t take a genius to see how the numbers added up.  Trading for Eastern European goal scorers(Kovalev, Poninkarovsky) = Playoff flame out whereas acquiring North American, hard nosed, gritty, leadershi [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins and Dallas Stars Trade Two Morrows and Picks

Brandon Morrow The Penguins have traded promising defensive prospect and 2011 first round draft pick Joe Morrow to the Dallas Stars in return for veteran captain of the Stars Brenden Morrow.    The trade reads as this:  Pittsburgh gets Brenden Morrow and Dallas’ 3rd-round pick in 2013 for prospect Joe Morrow and Penguins 5th-round pick 2013. To make r [...]

Penguins Update: Time to Trade Malkin?

pp0111 There was a time when the thought of trading superstar Evgeni Malkin would’ve seemed so preposterous that it wouldn’t have entered my mind. After all, we’re talking about a Hart Trophy winner and two-time NHL scoring champ—a player of such singular brilliance and magnitude that he’s already carved out a prominent place among the pantheon of S [...]

Malkin Injury is Perfect Reason for Penguins to Look for Rentals

Evgeni Malkin If you haven’t heard Malkin has been ruled out of tonight’s game and placed on IR.  As well he should be.  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 [...]

Penguins Update: Eaton at Home on Penguins’ Defense

eaton The Penguins didn’t hold a special press conference to announce his signing. Nor did his arrival on February 25 create a huge media buzz. Yet when the final puck drops on this lockout-shortened season the addition of defenseman Mark Eaton may well be regarded as one of GM Ray Shero’s savviest moves. Eaton isn’t the type of player who sticks o [...]

Penguins History: Bob Paradise

bob paradise It might come as a surprise for Penguins fans to learn that a Hall-of-Fame defenseman skated for the team in the mid-to-late 1970s. No, it wasn’t shot-blocker extraordinaire Dave Burrows or even Norris Trophy winner Randy Carlyle. His name was Bob Paradise, and he was inducted into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame in 1989. (more… [...]

Pens Comeback Win Against Bs Most Meaningful of the Season

bruins There are few things more gratifying than erasing a four-goal lead against a hated rival on their own ice, then proceeding to go on to beat them. One thing that is better, though, is coming back to win against a team with a suffocating D by watching your game systematically dismantle theirs with a few small tweaks in the waning minutes. Let&# [...]

Black-and-Gold Update: Penguins Show Tons of Heart in Victory Over Philly

Kunitz Celebration They say confession is good for the soul. If so, I must confess here and now that this isn’t my favorite Penguins team. I think they’re too small. They lack defensive structure, especially in their own end. And coach Dan Bylsma seems rigidly resistant to making meaningful adjustments. Still, I couldn’t be more proud of our boys for the way th [...]
