Penguins Sign Tom Sestito to a PTO

00ppfront In a low-risk effort to reinforce his star-studded squad with some muscle, Penguins GM Jim Rutherford announced on August 26 that he has invited heavyweight Tom Sestito to training camp on a tryout basis. There’s little doubt about what Sestito brings to the table. A third-round pick of Columbus in 2006, he’s skated in 137 NHL contests for th [...]

Penguins Update: Toughness Still an Issue

00ppfront January 28 at the Verizon Center in Washington. Six minutes to play. Then-Pens defenseman Christian Ehrhoff attempts to ram Alex Ovechkin into the sideboards. With an almost excuse-me sweep of his forearm, the Caps’ superman turns the tables and flattens the black-and-gold defender. Ehrhoff sustains a concussion. There were other incidents li [...]

Especially in the City of Champions, where we’re accustomed to (and spoiled by) so [...]

In his latest surprise move of the summer, JR signed veteran forward Matt Cullen to a 1-year deal worth $800,000. The 38-year-old Virginia, Minnesota native—who won a Stanley Cup with Rutherford’s Hurricanes in 2005-06—can play center and left win [...]

Penguins Defense a Worry

pp0531 Give Penguins GM Jim Rutherford credit. Under less-than-ideal circumstances, he’s done his utmost to breathe new life into a franchise that’s dropped a peg or two over the past couple of seasons. The acquisition of super-sniper Phil Kessel? A bold stroke. Ditto the flurry of moves that saw the Pens add Nick Bonino, Eric Fehr and [...]
