Penguins Update: Deadline Doozies ‘n’ Duds

00ppfront While we’re waiting to see if Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford pulls the trigger on any more deals, I thought it would be fun to glance back at the best (and worst) deadline trades in team history. I’ll call ‘em doozies ‘n’ duds. The best deadline deal of all-time? That’s easy. “The Trade.” Given a mandate by Hartford owner Richard Gor [...]

The Wow Factor: Penguins Crush Carolina 7-1

632252364_slide I’ve surely used this lead-in before. But, at the risk of repeating myself, what a difference a week makes. Why, following last Saturday night’s ugly 6-3 loss to Detroit the Penguins were sagging against the ropes and slipping in the standings.

As the second-period clock ticked under 30 seconds, the Penguins’ captain took a short pass in the neutral zone from Patric Hornqvist, turned and accelerated. Displaying the exquisite blend of speed, balance and deceptive power that make him such a singular talent, No. 87 blew past Ondrej Palat, Anto [...]

Penguins Update: The Juice is Loose

pp0434 When Ray Shero acquired Jussi Jokinen from Carolina at last season’s trade deadline it barely caused a stir. After all, the Pens’ GM had already amped our emotions to a fever pitch by trading for Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow, and Douglas Murray. These days Iginla, Morrow, and Murray are skating for other teams. And Jokinen? Heading int [...]
