Penguins Oleksy a Hit

pp0644 With his steel grey eyes and angular jaw, Steve Oleksy bears more than a passing resemblance to former Penguins hit man Ulf Samuelsson. Plays a lot like him, too. Indeed, since replacing injured defenseman Trevor Daley on December 17, Oleksy’s added some much-needed spice to the Pens’ backline. Through his first five regular-season games wear [...]

Do the Penguins Need a Tocchet?

00ppfront It sure was great to see our Penguins trim New Jersey last night before a big holiday crowd at PPG Paints Arena. The black and gold seemed remarkably unfazed by the pasting they received only 24 hours earlier at the hands of red-hot Columbus. Credit Mike Sullivan and the coaching staff for helping the team turn the page so quickly. The player [...]

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.

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 [...]

Penguins Rutherford Deserves Praise

PC_140606_098i5_jim_rutherford_sn635-450x252 I’ll be honest. Jim Rutherford wasn’t my choice to succeed Ray Shero as the Penguins’ general manager back in the summer of 2014. 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 [...]
