Penguins Re-sign Justin Schultz

053116nhl The Penguins re-signed defenseman Justin Schultz to a one-year deal, general manager Jim Rutherford announced today. Schultz, who made $3.9 million last season while splitting time between Edmonton and Pittsburgh, will earn $1.4 million during the coming season. The bargain signing reinforces a Pens defense thinned by the departure of Ben Lo [...]

Penguins Playoff Update: The Comeback Kids?

pp0623 The time for a more traditional post had long since passed when I got to wondering. How many times have the Penguins rallied from a 3-games-to-2 deficit to win a playoff series? I decided to do some digging. The Pens have overcome 3-2 series deficits (or worse) to emerge victorious six times in their storied postseason history. Coincidence o [...]

Penguins Clip Wings: Kessel and Bonino Shine

pp0595 After absorbing a 3-0 drubbing at the hands of nettlesome New Jersey on Thursday night, the Penguins desperately needed a bounce-back effort against the Red Wings yesterday afternoon. They got one…in spades. Sparked by five-point performances from Nick Bonino and Phil Kessel and Carl Hagelin’s two-goal game, the Pens erupted for a seas [...]

I’m not sure he was the Pens’ top choice, either. The club was considering associate GM Jason Botterill and analyst Pierre McGuire, among others, before JR emerged—seemingly from left field—to win the job. Now? It [...]

Penguins Update: Revisiting Ray’s Drafts

shero2 In Ray we trust. Remember that axiom? Indeed, it wasn’t all that long ago that former Penguins (and current Devils) general manager Ray Shero was the toast of the town. Back when he regularly fleeced his GM brethren (Chris Kunitz for Ryan Whitney). Moves that earned him General Manager of the Year honors in 2013. Before a string of playoff di [...]

Penguins Update: Kids Earning Their Keep

pp0587 Back on February 16, I posted an article on PenguinPoop bemoaning the Penguins’ lack of scoring depth. While commending their collective effort, I singled out the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton kids for their inability to find the net. Then a funny thing happened. Scott Wilson scored his first NHL goal the very next game against the Red Wings, courtes [...]
