Penguins Update: How Important is Building Through the Draft?

pp0516 A while back I read an article that downplayed the importance of building through the Entry Draft. I beg to differ. Developing young talent is the life blood of any hockey team. Fail to do so, and eventually your team will collapse like a house of cards. Ever since the Penguins won the Cup in 2009, they’ve used draft picks as fodder to trade [...]

Penguins Update: Is Sid Still Super?

pp0508 Sidney Crosby’s on-ice achievements are truly awe-inspiring. Two Art Ross Trophies, two Hart Trophies, three Ted Lindsay/Lester Pearson Awards, and a Stanley Cup. Enough lesser trophies, all-star selections and awards to fill a small museum. Along with his stats—a staggering 821 points in 596 NHL games—they speak of a sure-fire Hall-of-Famer. [...]

Penguins Update: Dupuis Simply Super

00ppfront I’ll never forget the day (Feb. 26, 2008 to be exact) when the Penguins acquired Marian Hossa and Pascal Dupuis from Atlanta at the trade deadline for Colby Armstrong, Erik Christensen, Angelo Esposito, and a draft pick. A friend asked me what I thought of the trade. Being a huge Armstrong fan, I frowned and said, “I don’t like it.” (I’m not [...]

Penguins Update: Don’t Forget the Kids

00ppfront In the wake of the Penguins’ recent loss to the Flyers, I was struck by the pronounced difference in the makeup of the teams. While the Pens’ lineup was generously stocked with 30-somethings (nine to be exact), Philly featured a bevy of talented young forwards who are in their early twenties, including NHL scoring leader Claude Giroux, Sean C [...]

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 [...]

Upcoming trade deadline part deux

00ppfront With Whitney gone before the deadline the Penguin most rumored player in all of the trade rumors is gone. The questions are: Will the Penguins make another trade? Will it be a big one? Are the Penguins looking for anything in particular? Is Kunitz the winger that Shero has in mind for Crosby’s line or is he still looking for a sniper? W [...]
