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. However, since so many folks seem to be talking about it, I thought I’d risk appearing presumptuous and toss my two cents in. Can the Penguins accomplish something that no bla [...]

Penguins Need ‘O’ from ‘D’

Heck, Colby Armstrong, Ryan Malone, Max Talbot and Ryan Whitney—young guns back then—have all retired from the NHL. That doesn’t seem possible, does it? Enough musing. Suffice it to say, there’s a wee bit of [...]

A Message for the Penguins: Get Back to Basics

A year can do a lot to your memory. Especially when you get to be my age. I’m trying to part the haze and remember how the Penguins played last spring. Every once in a while an image pops through.
