Does Nail Yakupov Make Sense for the Penguins?

Note: A couple of hours after I posted this article, Yakupov signed a one-year deal with the Colorado Avalanche for $875,000. Talk about timing! Now that the first hectic days of free-agent season have passed, we’ve settled into the dog days of summer, when activity on the hockey front is scarce as a snowball floating down the Mon.

Penguins Schultz a Bargain

Aside from the fact that they both hail from western Canada, Justin Schultz has little in common with his lone Penguins namesake.

A red-alert scramble ensued. The free-f [...]

Penguins Show Moxie

With the wolves of change nipping at their heels, the Pittsburgh Penguins circled the wagons at the Consol Energy Center on Thursday night and slammed the door on an ugly 0-3 start with an impressive 2-0 victory over Ottawa. The turnaround was as stunning as it was unexpected. And most welcome. Everyone contributed. The black and gold got st [...]
