Penguins Update: Hagelin, Daley Provide a Spark

pp0574 It isn’t the easiest thing to do. Improving a team through trades. Indeed, there’s a certain hit-or-miss quality about the process that comes with the turf. Kind of like panning for gold nuggets in a partially played-out stream, hoping to strike it rich. Especially if your counterpart senses you’re itching to make a deal. Overplay your hand a [...]

Penguins Get Hagelin from Ducks for Perron, Clendening

00ppfront The Pittsburgh Penguins have a new left wing. Burning the midnight oil in the wake of last night’s 5-4 overtime loss to Tampa Bay, general manager Jim Rutherford swapped underachieving forward David Perron and spare defenseman Adam Clendening to Anaheim for left wing Carl Hagelin. Impetus for the deal? Struggling offenses and disappointing ov [...]

Penguins Deal Scuderi to Blackhawks for Daley

pp0561 I remember smiling the day I learned that former GM Ray Shero had signed ex-Penguin Rob Scuderi to a free-agent deal back in the summer of 2013. Broadly. What wasn’t to like? “Scuds” had served as the defensive anchor on another Cup winner—this time in Los Angeles—while mentoring talented young Drew Doughty. I figured Shero had found the per [...]

Ex-Penguins Update: November 21, 2015

pp0515 Here’s a look at how former Penguins have performed thus far in 2015-16. Stats reflect games played through Friday, November 20. James Neal leads the expatriate Pens with nine goals. Neal, Jarome Iginla, Lee Stempniak, and ageless wonder Jaromir Jagr each have 15 points. Stempniak paces the ex-Pens in assists (11). Matt Niskanen and 2007 dra [...]

Penguins Update: Love for the Reverend

pp0545 It ranks among the most unpopular—and controversial—deals in recent Penguins history. To such an extent that GM Jim Rutherford felt compelled to absolve himself of sole responsibility, stating that a push for the trade came from above. An organizational decision. Heck, JR stopped just short of calling the swap a mistake. Yes, I’m refer [...]

Penguins Update: Toughness Still an Issue

00ppfront January 28 at the Verizon Center in Washington. Six minutes to play. Then-Pens defenseman Christian Ehrhoff attempts to ram Alex Ovechkin into the sideboards. With an almost excuse-me sweep of his forearm, the Caps’ superman turns the tables and flattens the black-and-gold defender. Ehrhoff sustains a concussion. There were other incidents li [...]

Penguins Update: Swan Song for Kuny and Scuds?

pp0533 “I wish we had a team full of Chris Kunitzes.” I’ve uttered those words many times to my hockey buddies over the past few years. Right up to the time the peppery winger mysteriously stopped producing last season. It’s easy to jump off the band wagon, isn’t it? Especially in the City of Champions, where we’re accustomed to (and spoiled by) so [...]
