The NHL trade deadline has come and gone. While a number of transactions transpired in the days leading up to it, some thought it might be a quiet day. However there were still a flurry of trades as the official cut-off passed. The Stanley Cup futures are going to change as some teams improved their rosters while some downgraded. Here’s a look at the winners and losers of trade deadline day: Winner: Pittsburgh Penguins Is there any arguing that the Penguins were the trade deadline winners considering their haul? They were already the Stanley Cup favorite beforehand at 3-1 but supplemented their roster with a slew of veterans. The prize of this year’s trade deadline was Jarome Iginla, and the Pens stole him. Not only did they acquire the former Calgary Flames captain early on to defuse the suspense, they also added Brenden Morrow from Dallas, Jussi Jokinen from Carolina and Douglas Murray from San Jose. Although the Pens have now dropped two straight after their impressive 15-game wi...

Penguins Trade For Jussi Jokinen Add Depth to Already Deep Roster

Going into trade deadline day today you would be hard pressed to find a deeper roster than that of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Their first two lines could fill an All-Star team.  Penguins GM Ray Shero added yet another player to the Penguins and once again did it without losing a roster player only a conditional 6th or 7th round pick. 30 year old, 5’11 left wing, Jussi Jokinen...

Jokinen leads way in Penguins debut

The Pittsburgh Penguins grabbed Jussi Jokinen from Carolina at the trade deadline, hopeful that the smooth-skating forward could fill in while superstar Sidney Crosby recovers from a broken jaw.

Marc-Andre Fleury gets his stick stuck in boards

On Wednesday night the Pittsburgh Penguins struggled mightily during their game against the New York Rangers.  Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was clearly frustrated with the lack of help he was getting and when he went to slam his stick against the boards, the stick actually got caught between the boards and the glass.  This obviously made him even more upset because he had...

GIF: Marc-Andre Fleury was so good tonight he didn't even need his glove

There was a collision in front of Fleury late in the second period. He somehow lost his glove. But that didn't phase him: Almost wish a puck would have got through to see him make a save with his barehand. But that also could have meant a broken hand, so glad it didn't happen.

Jussi Jokinen to the Pittsburgh Penguins by   Bill Sunshine

  As if the Pittsburgh Penguins needed another way to win games. Today the Penguins have acquired Carolina Hurricanes shootout specialist Jussi Jokinen for a conditional draft pick. As part of the deal, the Hurricanes will most likely retain some of Jokinen’s salary. If they didn’t have to, the Penguins would have likely just claimed [...]

Rangers-Penguins Preview

Goal breakdown: Rangers drop tough one in Pittsburgh, grab a point.

  AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar The Rangers dropped a tough one to the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight, 2-1 in a shootout.  The play of Marc-Andre Fleury was the only reason this game wasn’t a repeat of Wednesday night.  A truly sensational performance.  While the loss stings, securing 3 out of a possible 4 points in a home and home with the Pens is more than we could have hoped at the...

skeleton horse through the gates of hell

We're starting a new month, *******. Against the Sabres, of all people. Ew. And the coaching staff has scratched Joe Vitale without our permission. Unacceptable. OTHER THINGS THAT ARE UNACCEPTABLE: Jaromir Jagr traded to the Bruins. Can't wait to be at that game and **** some people up. More acceptable things: Brooksie has played 622 games, the most of any Penguins...
