Penguins Update: Revisiting Ray’s Drafts

shero2 In Ray we trust. Remember that axiom? Indeed, it wasn’t all that long ago that former Penguins (and current Devils) general manager Ray Shero was the toast of the town. Back when he regularly fleeced his GM brethren (Chris Kunitz for Ryan Whitney). Moves that earned him General Manager of the Year honors in 2013. Before a string of playoff di [...]

Penguins Update: Au Revoir Pascal

pp0559 He was a throw-in. A warm body to plug one of the gaps created when then-GM Ray Shero sent fan favorite Colby Armstrong and Erik Christensen to Atlanta as part of a blockbuster five-player deal for sniper Marian Hossa at the 2008 trade deadline.

Maybe the closed door meeting held by the players after the horrible performance against the Lightning helped, or maybe it was something else.  The Pens played a better game today against the Thrashers.  The win was made a bit better when considering that Atlanta is a team scrapping for a playoff berth and that former Penguin goalie Johan Hed [...]

Gameday Poop: Penguins vs Thrashers – Malkin & Gonchar are back!

pp0213 The Penguins had a big “closed door” meeting to discuss what needs fixed after that horrendous performance against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday night. Whatever they came up with can be fixed with two words: Malkin & Gonchar. These two are coming back and not a minute too soon.   I’m not calling this a no brainer [...]
