Kobasew was on the Avalanche's 4th line collecting 5 goals and 9 points in 37 games.For those that do not know how a PTO contract work here's the basic breakdown.This type of contract is limited to 25 games and a player can only be signed to a PTO twice per season. After the second time, the player is either signed to a Standard Player Contract, is a free agent, or if the player is signed to an ECHL team, he is then returned to that team.(Wikipedia)

WATCH: Evgeni Malkin delivers tickets to Penguins fans

Evgeni Malkin might have a strong future as a delivery man after his hockey career wraps up. The Penguins called on their star to help deliver tickets to season ticket holders ahead of the 2013-14 season.  Aside from delivering tickets, Malkin posed for pictures, spoke with fans and even expressed his love for Turkey.  These types of videos are awesome. It's always interesting...

Evgeni Malkin Delivers Season Tickets: Must Watch

Class Geno. Perhaps one of the most charismatic athletes currently in Pittsburgh. Our condolences to those that had to settle for Harry Z and Tanner Glass delivering season tickets.

Steadfast Penguins eager to get started

The Pittsburgh Penguins headed back to work on Wednesday, reporting for training camp just three months removed from a painful loss to Boston in the Eastern Conference finals. The Penguins return the core of a team that finished with the best record in the East during a lockout-shortened season. Coach Dan Bylsma received a contract extension in the offseason. Evgeni Malkin, Kris...

Avs' Roy anxious to get to work

Patrick Roy stopped by a local coffee shop recently when a friendly stranger approached him for a casual conversation. ''They said, `Hey coach, how are you today?''' Roy recounted. ''I was like, `Oh, yeah, that's me.''' Indeed, and the Hall of Fame goaltender hopes to bring as much fiery passion to the Colorado Avalanche bench as he did...

Questions For Marc-Andre Fleury After Practice Today

from Sean Gentille of The Sporting News, The questions came after a game that didn't count. And really, does anything count less than a scrimmage on the first day of training camp? Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury had to answer them, though; when you whiff on the first three pucks you publicly face after your second consecutive playoff car crash, what else...

Penguins History: The Pests

The Penguins have employed their share of pests—the thorn-in-the-side guys who make a living out of getting under the oppositions’ skin. Here are my top six: 1. Bryan Watson (1969-74) Watson wasn’t nicknamed “Bugsy” and “Superpest” for nothing. Like his partner in crime, Glen Sather, the tough little defender excelled at getting under the opposition’s skin. Unlike...

having too many feelings is bad for your body: a brief pittsburgh penguins season preview

Yeah, so, we've been really silent. We read THIS at the Pensblog this morning and of course, we agree somewhat.  For awhile, we couldn't tell if our disillusionment with the Pens was the result of just our imploding lives swirling into the vortex, separating us so painfully from hockey and all of the flowery, dizzying pursuits of youth.  (Right, we're 23 and 25 now...

It's Been Worse by @Nick422

By all accounts the Penguins season, from roughly very late May until now, has been a mess.  Swept in a very inglorious fashion, a draft that featured few picks due to the deadline deals which worked well at first then bombed, and a free agency period featuring a lot of question marks. While it hasn't been good, it's been much much worse. (Getty Images) Go...

Being a Hockey Fan by Guest Blogger @brumistheshow

Hi, my name is Justin, but everyone calls me Brum. I have a confession to make, while I have always "liked" the Pittsburgh Penguins and the NHL, I can't say that I've always been a "fan". (Now, now, put down the pitchforks, and please don't hit that unfollow button just yet.)I say this in jest, but a lot of people in the pens nation tend to look down...

LINK CITY: Pens young Dman,Pens sign some guy, Mean Joke of the day.

Josh Yohe with a good piece on the Pens younger dman. [ Trib ] Fitzgerald said “it wouldn't be a shock at all” if Pouliot or Maatta starts this season in the NHL. Dumoulin's chances of making the team might be even stronger. He was acquired in a trade that sent Jordan Staal to Carolina. Maybe Maatta or Pouliot will get a 10-game look. No clue where any of...
