Found June 19, 2013 on Buffalo Wins:
  The NHL draft is 2 weeks away. The lead up to the draft isn’t as horrible as the NFL draft, but the there is plenty of BS to sift thru before getting to that Sunday in Newark. But this year’s topic du jour is whether or not the Sabres trade up to #1 pick.  The whole offseason has seemed like the Sabres had a desire for that franchise changer in the draft. They are looking for their Sidney Crosby, a player other players want to come play with. Also a dominant #1 Center, who the team has been looking for since 2007. The question is now, what gets a move from 8 to 1 done? Picks and prospects? Picks, Prospects and NHL Player(s)? The only person that knows this is Patrick Roy, who, we’ve been told ad nauseum spoke with Darcy Regier a lot this past year. At first it was about Grigerenko, then maybe about being the coach. Whatever Narrative you wanted it to be that week. Now you could spin it as, Darcy has knowledge of what Patrick Roy may want or need, giving him an upper ...

Ray Shero and the Pens "All in" with Crosby, Malkin, and Bylsma is all about making choices and taking risks; just like in business, and in poker. Pittsburgh Penguins general manager and 2013 NHL GM of the year winner Ray Shero has just put all of his cards on the table and has gone "All in" with three different guys. With the Penguins coming off of their fourth straight postseason ending in disappointing fashion...

The Logic of Trading Kris Letang by @ExcitedBobErrey

Kris Letang is a great player.  He's one of the best skating defensemen in the league and possesses a great outlet pass.  And it takes a lot of offensive skill to average a point per game in the current NHL, as Letang did this past season.  Possibly the only thing that surpasses Letang's skill is his value.  Teams are placing increasing value on mobile puckmoving defensemen...

Top Penguins One Hit Wonders by @evil_shero

With all the questions swirling around the Penguins off-season roster moves this summer it got me to thinking who are some of the more memorable "rental" players to wear the black and gold sweaters. I looked at any player who played less than 100 games with the Penguins and made an impact of some sort. No one reads these introductory paragraphs so ...Marian HossaAcquired...

Is Kris LeTang the Penguins’ latest, “PIT must move player X for Crosby/Malkin’s sake” player?

I never know what to make of the Pittsburgh Penguins press's, "Penguins must move core player X to make room for Malkin/Crosby" chatter as it's practically a rite of late spring and early summer, but TSN's Insider Trading gents suggested that Penguins defenseman Kris Letang may be on the move if he doesn't agree to a reasonable contract extension, and, via...

Stay or Go: Kris Letang

Kris Letang has one year remaining on his current contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins, and while he technically may not be going anywhere this year, everybody seemingly has an opinion on what Ray Shero and company need to do with the star defensemen. Should he stay or should he go? Regardless of fan’s opinions, Shero has a lot of work to do before the NHL Draft on June 30th in...
