How Will the Expansion Draft Affect the Penguins?

With the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft just around the corner, I thought I’d take a stab at deciphering the rules and determining who the Penguins might protect and expose. Teams must submit their list of protected players to the league by 5 PM (ET) this coming Saturday. The league’s new entry—the Las Vegas Golden Knights—will then announce its se [...]

Cup Talk: Can the Penguins Three-peat?

I realize it’s awfully early to ponder our chances for next season. Heck, the sheen’s barely been smudged from the glittering silver surface of the newly captured Cup.

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 [...]

Penguins Playoff Update: Ramble On

I confess. When the Penguins beat Nashville in Game Two on Wednesday night to take a 2-0 lead in the Stanley Cup Final, I started feeling giddy about our chances to repeat as champions. Then I was reminded that the last team to have a shot at winning back-to-back Cups had gone up 2-zip as well. Indeed, the Detroit Red Wings defeated our Pens [...]
