Penguins Hire Mike Johnston

pp0489 Penguins GM Jim Rutherford announced today that he hired Mike Johnston as the team’s new coach, ending a prolonged three-week search that began when Dan Bylsma was fired on June 6 and included at least one much-publicized swing and miss. Rutherford also announced that one-time Pens power forward Rick Tocchet joined the club as an assistant co [...]

Penguins Update: Nothing the Maatta with Olli

pp0408 When Pittsburgh Penguins GM Ray Shero selected defenseman Olli Maatta with the 22nd overall pick at the 2012 Entry Draft, it’s safe to say he was expecting good things from the London Knights star. He just wasn’t expecting them so soon. Following a solid 2012-13 season in junior, the 19-year-old native of Jyvaskyla, Finland wasted little time [...]

Penguins Update: No To-Morrow for Brenden

Morrow Penguins With all due respect to Jarome Iginla, Jussi Jokinen, and Douglas Murray, my favorite Penguins acquisition at the 2013 trade deadline was Brenden Morrow. Call me old school, but ever since “Scary” Gary Roberts left the ‘Burgh during the summer of 2008 I’ve felt the Pens have lacked a certain element. Call it “functional snarl,” if you will. I [...]

Penguins Update: Shero Paves the Way for a Stanley Cup

shero2 Say this about Penguins GM Ray Shero. He sure doesn’t wait for an invitation to join the party. In a pair of bold moves that preempted the NHL’s April 3 trade deadline by over a week, Shero acquired two missing pieces to the Pens’ Stanley Cup puzzle. On Sunday he swapped defensive prospect Joe Morrow and a 5th round pick in the 2013 Entry Dra [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins and Dallas Stars Trade Two Morrows and Picks

Brandon Morrow The Penguins have traded promising defensive prospect and 2011 first round draft pick Joe Morrow to the Dallas Stars in return for veteran captain of the Stars Brenden Morrow.    The trade reads as this:  Pittsburgh gets Brenden Morrow and Dallas’ 3rd-round pick in 2013 for prospect Joe Morrow and Penguins 5th-round pick 2013. To make r [...]

Penguins Free-Agent Plans Go Pfft

Shero It wasn’t supposed to work out this way. Thanks to a pair of bold trades by Penguins GM Ray Shero at the Entry Draft that freed up millions in salary-cap space, the black and gold were supposed to be major players in the Zach Parise-Ryan Suter free-agent sweepstakes. One could almost picture Parise working the give-and-go to perfection with p [...]

Penguins Update: History Repeating Itself

Neal & Niskanen In nature everything runs in cycles. Seasons change from winter to spring to summer to fall, and back again. The same holds true in sports. Championship teams are cultivated and nurtured through a combination of drafts, trades and free-agent signings until they peak. Then they gradually diminish until they enter a rebuilding phase. Only three [...]

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 [...]
