#dregerface saved the season, by the way.
The last time we were all having a hockey convo it was sometime last June when the Pens traded Jordan Staal.
It feels great to be back.
We haven't been this excited since Christoper Lloyd didn't die in Back to the Future.
What will the schedule be? When will the season start? What is the cap?
Answers to those questions and how they affect the Penguins after the jump.
When does the season start?
As of Sunday night, still not clear. The CBA still needs to be ratified by the Owners who may meet between Tuesday and Wednesday according to John Shannon. There is even talk that camps could open as soon as Wednesday.
Shero told Penguins.com he doesn't know if it is going to be a five or seven day camp.
By the way, you'll know when the CBA is done when Pens.com returns players to background. They had to strip all of those graphics away when the...

We've been playfully making fun of Kris Letang for going to the KHL for like 6 minutes.
MAF did that today and it is great.
Based on Fleury's reaction you can tell that Letang is going to get made fun of for a while.

Sidney Crosby and nearly a dozen of his Penguins teammates worked out at a suburban Pittsburgh ice rink on Monday, just as they did during the four-month NHL lockout.
Only this time, the players were wearing their familiar Pittsburgh practice sweaters instead of jerseys promoting the NHL Players Association. It was a welcome return for the Penguins following the lockout's end...
The Penguins issued a statement on the lockout today:
To our Penguins Fans and Community:
We offer our apology. There is nothing we can say to explain or excuse what has happened over the past four months.
However, now that the NHL is back, we want to assure you that the Pittsburgh Penguins will do everything we can to regain your trust and show how much we value your...
If there's one thing that's annoying about Sidney Crosby, it's his innate ability to churn out meaningless quotes every time someone asks him a question. By the end of his second year in the NHL, we were already skipping his quotes in anything we were reading. Snore fest. We know why he is the way he is, but it just got old really fast.
Over the weekend, we...
Ray Shero's signing of Tomas Vokoun might be one of the most important moves he's ever made. Teams with a solid 1-2 punch between the pipes are gonna have a decided advantange, as all teams will be staring 3- and 4-game weeks in the face, not to mention the likely possibiity of double-digit back-to-back situations, and every game is going to carry importance.

Hartford, CT, January 6, 2013 - After watching Cam Talbot pick up his first shutout of the season in Hartford on Friday, Jason Missiaen decided he wanted one too. Supported by two goals from Kyle Jean, the Connecticut Whale skated to a 2-0 victory over the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins, despite being outshot by a margin of 35-18. The Whale earned five points...

My darkest fears of missing the chance to see how it all turns out after a busy and aggressive offseason to make a big long-term addition in Jordan Staal, but also a potentially equally significant addition with a 1-year deal in Alexander Semin. I called the Semin signing about 12 hours before it happened and am on record as loving the deal. I fully acknowledge that...
Before the lockout put everything on hold for the last 113 days, the Carolina Hurricanes made a few very interesting moves this off-season and were expected to be one of the more improved teams in the league. It has been quite a long time since all of this went down, so let's take the next few minutes or so to review everything the Hurricanes did and what their roster looks like...
