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 Set After Free-Agent Flurry

shero2 It didn’t take Penguins general manager Ray Shero long to wrap up his summer’s work. During the four short weeks that passed since the black and gold bowed to Boston in the Conference Finals, he resolved virtually all of the team’s looming personnel issues and laid the foundation for the upcoming campaign. Here’s a quick review of Shero’s mov [...]

Penguins GM Shero put Coach Bylsma in a Very Tough Situation

pp0392 In March when Penguins coach Dan  Bylsma had the Penguins rocking out a 12 game winning streak, you would have thought Christmas came early. Penguins GM Ray Shero started to bring in 4 new seasoned veterans to add to the Penguins already rich lineup.  The Penguins brought in leadership, grit, skill & experience.  Everything a coach could [...]

Penguins Lose Top Goal Scorer Amidst Biggest Scoring Drought in Years

James Neal The Pittsburgh Penguins are in their worst scoring drought in a 10 game span in years and it’s getting worse.   The Penguins have registered only 3 goals over the last three games and have just announced that their leading goal scorer over the last two years, James Neal, is out with a concussion. Nobody can say for sure whether the elbo [...]

Penguins Need Malkin More Than Ever

malkin There’s a rather ominous Bible verse in the book of Hosea that warns, “… they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.” While I may be guilty of taking this passage of scripture out of context, it sure seems like an apt description for what has been an exhilarating yet tumultuous couple of weeks for Penguins hockey. On the plus [...]

Letang Out: Penguins Playing Musical Chairs with Defensemen

Kris Letang Yesterday morning Ray Shero had eight active defensemen on his roster and one defenseman, Kris Letang, on Injured Reserve.  In between then and now defenseman Simon Despres was returned to the WBS Penguins, Kris Letang was taken off IR, Robert Bortuzzo was sent down to the WBS Penguins for “conditioning assignment”,  Kris Letang i [...]

Why is the Pittsburgh Penguins Defense so Bad?

Letang The Penguins have new lineups for their first and second power plays. The first power play has the same players on it with one small twist. Evgeni Malkin will be on the point and James Neal will be moving up. The interesting thing is the Penguins second powerplay which practiced with Dustin Jeffrey and Paul Martin at point. The Penguins have [...]

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 Must Wait ‘Til Next Year

00ppfront As a long-time Penguins fan, writing the summary for yesterday’s Game 6 loss to the Flyers was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. It was somewhat akin to writing an obituary for a dear friend who suddenly had passed away. Watching the game was even more painful. With dreams of a dramatic comeback from an 0-3 series deficit dancing [...]
