Penguins Free-Agent Plans Go Pfft

Shero It wasn’t supposed to work out this way. Thanks to a pair of bold trades by Penguins GM Ray Shero at the Entry Draft that freed up millions in salary-cap space, the black and gold were supposed to be major players in the Zach Parise-Ryan Suter free-agent sweepstakes. One could almost picture Parise working the give-and-go to perfection with p [...]

Penguins sign warm bodies on first day of lukewarm free agent signings

shero2   The highly anticipated free agent frenzy that was supposed to kick off at 12:01 PM yesterday never materialized as only a couple of “big” names signed with new teams, and like the really hot girls at prom time, the giant names sat back and let the courting begin.  Along with  the millions of dollars being offered to guys li [...]

Are the Penguins a better team today, or excuse me, is anyone using this Staal?

Jordan_Staal2 Coming to Pittsburgh to cover the NHL entry draft this past weekend, most media pundits expected a rather dull, uneventful two days based on the fact that this year’s draft class was mediocre at best.  The Penguins were determined not to let that happen.  Rumors began circulating on Thursday night that Jordan Staal had turned down the P [...]

Selling High: Jordan Staal Heads to Carolina

00ppfront Hockey players are an investment. Safe investors sell high and reduce risking their whole portfolio over one risky investment. Ray Shero is a safe investor and Jordan Staal is no exception. I think Shero did what was best for the long-term future of the Pens. Look at some of the benefits: 1. We actually get something — more than just so [...]

Penguins Update: Malkin the Magnificent

00ppfront Back in 1963 Avis was determined to pry rent-a-car sales away from its giant rival Hertz. So president Robert C. Townsend devised a catchy new slogan to highlight his company’s underdog status—“We’re Only No. 2. We Try Harder.” Penguins superstar Evgeni Malkin can relate. The gifted center has spent virtually his entire career skating in the [...]

Penguins land solid back up goalie in Tomas Vokoun

00ppfront Today the Pittsburgh Penguins acquired goalie Tomas Vokoun from the Washington Capitals in exchange for a 7th round draft pick in this year’s upcoming draft.  Vokoun, 35 and an unrestricted free agent come July 1st then went on to sign a two year deal with the team worth $2 million per season effectively ending the Penguin career of Bre [...]

Could the Penguins lose Malkin in 2 years?

00ppfront The KHL has announced, according to multiple sources, that all returning Russians from the NHL will not count against the salary cap. What will the Penguins do in 2 years if some crazy, stupid, rich KHL owner offers Geno $25 million tax free per season like Jaromir Jagr was making in Omsk? Sure it’s the KHL, but Geno speaks the language [...]

Penguins Should Learn From the Devils

00ppfront I hope that the Penguins management team had a close eye on the Flyer-Devils series.  The Devils put on a clinic as to how to win a playoff series.  First and foremost, play hard every shift.  The Penguins most certainly did NOT do that.  Next is play with a strong defensive posture – know what man you are responsible for and pressure him eve [...]

Phil Krundle: Should There be Changes in the Penguins Future?

00ppfront Here at PenguinPoop we are taking a hard look at whether or not the Pittsburgh Penguins organization needs to make any changes.  Sixth up is Phil Krundle. Phil Krundle Perhaps looking at the big picture is needed before we make the Penguins owners, management, players and peanut venders walk the plank. Yes, the Penguins had an early first r [...]

Just kicking around some crazy Penguin trade ideas

00ppfront I was sitting around with a couple of my buddies talking, what else, Penguins hockey and what they might be doing in the coming months ahead.  We wondered what would happen if NHL general managers acted like fantasy hockey owners so we started throwing around some crazy trade ideas just to see which ones might actually be feasible in today [...]
