Penguins Update: Too Many Vets Spoil the Stew

pp0433 As I watched the Penguins take one on the chin last night at the hands of the Dallas Stars, I couldn’t help but note that for the second time in the past four games the black and gold got lit up by a younger, faster, hungrier team. It made me wistful for the time when injuries forced the Penguins to dress some of their kids. Remember how it f [...]

Is the Penguins’ Defense Good Enough?

pp0431 Back in 1973 the Philadelphia Flyers drafted defenseman Larry Goodenough with their second-round pick. Cleverly nicknamed “Izzy,” Goodenough enjoyed some early success with Philly before fizzling later on. It made me think of the Penguins’ defense. As it’s currently constructed, is the black-and-gold blueline corps good enough to anchor a Sta [...]

Penguins Update: Hot ‘n’ Not

pp0418 Here’s a quick glance at who’s hot (and who’s not) for the Penguins over their last ten games leading up to Saturday’s contest with Calgary. The Pens were 7-2-1 during that span. (more…)

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 Update: Despres Returns; D’Agostini Waived

00ppfront It’s getting so you can’t tell who’s on the ice and who’s in the hospital ward for the Penguins these days. In rapid succession the club lost Beau Bennett (wrist surgery), Tanner Glass (broken hand) and, now, top defenseman Paul Martin (broken tibia). Combined with previous injuries to defensive stalwart Rob Scuderi and forward Chuck Kobasew [...]

Penguins Update: First Quarter Report

pp0405 As the Penguins round the quarter pole of the 2013-14 season, I thought it might be an appropriate time to review the Top Five Pluses (and Minuses) so far. (more…)

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 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 [...]

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 [...]

Plug ‘N’ Play Penguins Too Predictable?

Coach Bylsma For the past couple of seasons I’ve watched with increasing alarm as the Penguins have downsized (and defanged) in order to better fit Dan Bylsma’s “damn-the-torpedoes, full-steam-ahead” system. It’s no secret that Bylsma’s approach is predicated on wearing the other team down with a relentless attack. While speed certainly is an asset in tod [...]
