Penguins Update: A Funny Thing Happened on the Road to the Cup

pp0361 It sure is a wonderful time to be a Penguins fan. With a little help from friends Pascal Dupuis and Chris Kunitz, Sidney Crosby has reestablished himself as the finest player in the game. Our boys are making mincemeat out of the rest of the NHL to the tune of 14-straight wins. They’ve allowed only 9 goals in the past 10 games—including three [...]

Like a good neighbor, Ray Shero’s there or Are the 2013 Penguins now the 1927 Yankees?

Shero With rumors flying all over the place that the Boston Bruins had put together a big time trade that would rival or even surpass the two that the Penguins had just made around midnight last night, I can just picture Penguins Assistant Coach Tony Granato running over to Head Coach Dan Bylsma and saying, “Do the jingle, do the jingle” [...]

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 [...]

With Doug Murray acquisition, Ray Shero announces, “We’re going for the Cup this yea...

pp0342 As he did with two of his previous acquisitions, Ray Shero did not wait for the NHL’s trade deadline day to improve the Penguins’ roster.  Like both the Chris Kunitz and James Neal deals, Shero acted while the rest of the NHL GMs were busy preparing for the April 3rd trade deadline.  Yesterday, it was the trade for Brenden Morrow [...]

Penguins Update: Shero Paves the Way for a Stanley Cup

shero2 Say this about Penguins GM Ray Shero. He sure doesn’t wait for an invitation to join the party. In a pair of bold moves that preempted the NHL’s April 3 trade deadline by over a week, Shero acquired two missing pieces to the Pens’ Stanley Cup puzzle. On Sunday he swapped defensive prospect Joe Morrow and a 5th round pick in the 2013 Entry Dra [...]

Now that the Penguins have Brenden Morrow, what to do with him?

1images When Ray Shero sat down to do the math involved in trying to decide who to acquire for the Penguins stretch drive to the playoffs, it didn’t take a genius to see how the numbers added up.  Trading for Eastern European goal scorers(Kovalev, Poninkarovsky) = Playoff flame out whereas acquiring North American, hard nosed, gritty, leadershi [...]

Penguins Update: Time to Trade Malkin?

pp0111 There was a time when the thought of trading superstar Evgeni Malkin would’ve seemed so preposterous that it wouldn’t have entered my mind. After all, we’re talking about a Hart Trophy winner and two-time NHL scoring champ—a player of such singular brilliance and magnitude that he’s already carved out a prominent place among the pantheon of S [...]

Malkin Injury is Perfect Reason for Penguins to Look for Rentals

Evgeni Malkin If you haven’t heard Malkin has been ruled out of tonight’s game and placed on IR.  As well he should be.  That is of course if the media has correctly speculated he has a shoulder injury or a head injury.  Both of those injuries take more than just a few weeks to heal correctly and both of those injuries are injuries that could a [...]

Penguins Update: Eaton at Home on Penguins’ Defense

eaton The Penguins didn’t hold a special press conference to announce his signing. Nor did his arrival on February 25 create a huge media buzz. Yet when the final puck drops on this lockout-shortened season the addition of defenseman Mark Eaton may well be regarded as one of GM Ray Shero’s savviest moves. Eaton isn’t the type of player who sticks o [...]

Black-and-Gold Update: Penguins Show Tons of Heart in Victory Over Philly

Kunitz Celebration They say confession is good for the soul. If so, I must confess here and now that this isn’t my favorite Penguins team. I think they’re too small. They lack defensive structure, especially in their own end. And coach Dan Bylsma seems rigidly resistant to making meaningful adjustments. Still, I couldn’t be more proud of our boys for the way th [...]
