Penguins Try Everyman Approach: Add Goc and Stempniak

pp0440 What a difference a year makes. Eleven months ago Penguins fans were dancing in the streets following GM Ray Shero’s blockbuster deadline deals for Jarome Iginla, Jussi Jokinen, Brenden Morrow, and Douglas Murray. And this season? Not so much. Shero tried to add some glitter. He vigorously pursued Vancouver’s Ryan Kesler, only to be rebuffed. [...]

Penguins Update: The Juice is Loose

pp0434 When Ray Shero acquired Jussi Jokinen from Carolina at last season’s trade deadline it barely caused a stir. After all, the Pens’ GM had already amped our emotions to a fever pitch by trading for Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow, and Douglas Murray. These days Iginla, Morrow, and Murray are skating for other teams. And Jokinen? Heading int [...]

Penguins Update: Hot ‘n’ Not

pp0418 Here’s a quick glance at who’s hot (and who’s not) for the Penguins over their last ten games leading up to Saturday’s contest with Calgary. The Pens were 7-2-1 during that span. (more…)

Penguins Update: First Quarter Report

pp0405 As the Penguins round the quarter pole of the 2013-14 season, I thought it might be an appropriate time to review the Top Five Pluses (and Minuses) so far. (more…)

Penguins Update: No Joy in Mudville

Sidney Crosby Face Shield It’s been several days since Boston swept our beloved Penguins from Stanley Cup competition. In my mind, here are seven factors that led to the defeat: 1. Sid’s Jaw—The fractured jaw Sidney Crosby sustained with a month to go in the regular season may have contributed more than any other factor to the Penguins’ undoing. The combination of the [...]

Penguins Update: Bylsma Pushes the Right Buttons

pp0350 There’s an old adage in sports—ride the horse that brung ya.’ (Or something like that.) Thank goodness Penguins coach Dan Bylsma paid it no mind as filled out his lineup card for Thursday’s critical Game 5 matchup with the pesky New York Islanders. I’ve been critical of the Pens’ skipper in the past for what I felt were questionable personnel [...]

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 [...]

No Jokin[en]: Penguins’ Jussi for Real

Jussi Jokinen When Penguins GM Ray Shero acquired veteran Jussi Jokinen from Carolina at the trade deadline for a conditional draft pick it almost seemed like an afterthought. After all, Shero had spent the previous week snatching up three of the hottest commodities on the market—Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow, and Douglas Murray. But make no mistake—Jokine [...]

Penguins Trade For Jussi Jokinen Add Depth to Already Deep Roster

jokinen Going into trade deadline day today you would be hard pressed to find a deeper roster than that of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Their first two lines could fill an All-Star team.  Penguins GM Ray Shero added yet another player to the Penguins and once again did it without losing a roster player only a conditional 6th or 7th round pick. 30 year o [...]

Penguins Edge ‘Canes 2-1 in Shootout

00ppfront The Penguins continued to distance themselves from an ugly six-game slide with a crisp 2-1 shootout win over Carolina at CONSOL Energy Center on Tuesday night. The victory—the club’s third in a row—vaulted the black and gold past idle Florida and into sixth place in the Eastern Conference standings. Although the Hurricanes entered the contest [...]
