Penguins Update: Where We Stand Today

With nothing in particular to write about and curious about how our Penguins look at the present, I decided to compile an organizational depth chart. Kind of an on-the-fly glance at our prospective team. According to CapFriendly.com, the Pens currently have a cap hit of $64,620,000, with $10,380,000 in available cap space. However, they don’t [...]

Penguins Release Protection List

The Penguins released their Protection List for the upcoming Expansion Draft. Opting to protect eight skaters and a goalie, the black and gold shielded forwards Sidney Crosby, Patric Hornqvist, Phil Kessel and Evgeni Malkin, defensemen Brian Dumoulin, Kris Letang, Olli Maatta and Justin Schultz, and goalie Matt Murray.

It was theirs for the taking. After scoring the opening goal on a hustling second-effort tally by Jake Guentzel—his 13th of this magical p [...]

Sleepy Penguins Outlast Predators 5-3

Somebody up there likes us. An awful lot. I can find no other plausible explanation for how the Penguins defeated Nashville last night in Game One of the Stanley Cup Final before 18,618 hand-wringing patrons at PPG Paints Arena. It sure as hell wasn’t due to a heroic effort on the part of the home team. In all my years of watching Penguins ho [...]
