Penguins Update: Simon Sez…Despres Needs to Play

pp0415 There’s no denying it. The Pittsburgh Penguins enjoy a wealth of riches when it comes to defensemen. Thanks to the drafting and bold maneuvering of GM Ray Shero, the Pens can boast of no fewer than a dozen defensemen (counting prospect Scott Harrington) who could be skating a regular shift in the NHL. That’s enough to stock two teams. Of all [...]

Penguins Update: Injuries a Blessing in Disguise?

pp0413 It’s safe to say the Penguins have endured more than their share of hardship this year. With key performers such as Paul Martin and Rob Scuderi dropping like flies, the black and gold ranked fourth in the NHL with 161 man-games lost to injury as of December 15—a staggering total at this stage of the season. While it’s never a good thin [...]

Penguins Show Lots of Heart

pp0412 I’ve written on numerous occasions that the Penguins need to be bigger and tougher in order to compete for the Stanley Cup. While I still feel the black and gold would benefit from some extra beef up front, the team’s collective heart is plenty big enough. Last night’s 4-1 victory over Detroit was one of the most courageous efforts I’ve witne [...]

Penguins Update: The Boston Massacre

pp0410 More than any Penguins’ defeat in recent memory, last night’s gut-wrenching 3-2 loss at the hands of the Big, Bad Bruins at TD Garden left a bad taste in my mouth and set off a tidal wave of emotions. It wasn’t so much that the Penguins lost as how they lost. After giving a valiant effort for 58 emotionally charged minutes, they leaked for tw [...]

Penguins Update: Niskanen’s Dangerfield Days Are Over

pp0409 Perform a quick scan of Pittsburgh Penguins statistics and you’ll notice a surprising number. Perched atop the list in plus/minus rating is Matt Niskanen. The same Matt Niskanen who most experts felt would be dealt over the past summer to clear salary cap space. If ever there was a player who epitomized the mantra of the late comedian Rodney [...]

Penguins Update: Nothing the Maatta with Olli

pp0408 When Pittsburgh Penguins GM Ray Shero selected defenseman Olli Maatta with the 22nd overall pick at the 2012 Entry Draft, it’s safe to say he was expecting good things from the London Knights star. He just wasn’t expecting them so soon. Following a solid 2012-13 season in junior, the 19-year-old native of Jyvaskyla, Finland wasted little time [...]

Penguins an Easy Opponent?

pp0404 There was a time in the not-too-distant past when Pittsburgh Penguins opponents hated visiting the Steel City. Not only would they have to face a lethal lineup featuring hungry young stars such as Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, but they knew they’d absorb more than a few bumps and bruises, too. Now it seems, opponents are having far too eas [...]

Penguins Update: It’s Early But …

pp0403 … the Penguins remind me an awful lot of last season’s Stanley Cup winners, the Chicago Blackhawks. They’re playing with the same mix of speed, skill and grit, not to mention confidence, focus and desire. … Ray Shero should win his second straight General Manager of the Year award. Not only did the wily GM keep the team’s talented core intact [...]

Penguins Update: Bylsma Gets a “Therrien Chip”

pp0398 As a hockey fan who’s grown disenchanted with the Pittsburgh Penguins’ erratic team defense—particularly during the playoffs—I’ve often wished the Pens could figure a way to implant a Michel Therrien chip into Dan Bylsma’s noggin. Then the black and gold would have the best of both worlds—an upbeat, popular coach who could instill in his troo [...]

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 [...]
