The Pittsburgh Penguins announced today that their annual development camp will be hosted at CONSOL Energy Center from July 16th through July 20th. Fans will be permitted to attend the final scrimmage on July 20th at 3:00 PM. A complete roster has not been made available just yet, but some of the big names have been announced. Young defensemen Derrick Pouliot, Scott Harrington, Olli Maatta, and Brian Dumoulin headline a very talented group on the blue line. Two great goaltenders will be attending as well. Tristan Jarry, the Penguins’ top pick of the 2013 NHL Draft, will participate in the camp in addition to Eric Hartzell, who was signed by Pittsburgh in April after he led Quinnipiac University to the Frozen Four in Pittsburgh. Only one forward has been announced, which is Oskar Sundqvist, who was Pittsburgh’s third-round draft pick in 2012. This year’s coaching staff will include John Hynes, Alain Nasreddine, Tom Fitzgerald, Bill Guerin, Mike Bales, Mike Kadar, and Joe Lorincz. Stay tuned for more details for this year’s development camp as they come out.

During the playoffs former Stars Captain Brenden Morrow was mostly invisible, but since then we have found out why. A split knee cap has turned out to be a major factor in Morrow’s lack of production. Given his playoff performance, and the Pittsburgh Penguins lack of cap space it has been all but a given [...]
With the NHL salary cap shrinking this year and the Pittsburgh Penguins having frighteningly little room to function, we will examine likely cap casualties. Today we will first look at Defense. The return of “The Piece” Rob Scuderi, now leaves the Penguins with 8 NHL capable defenseman on the books, and should the team carry [...]
The Missing Piece: Rob Scuderi
During the first day of free agency, fans of the Penguins rode quite the emotional rollercoaster. Some usual names, some players we have come to know better than some of our family members waved goodbye and sailed steadily into the loving (or not so) arms of another team.
We bid adieu to Matt Cooke, who most likely...
So I have noticed this trading card before, it just never clicked with me how…..odd it is. Pittsburgh Penguins greats Mario Lemieux, Sidney Crosby, Geno Malkin, and……Joey Mullen. Dont get me wrong, I love Joe Mullen and I still believe that he is the greatest American to lace up hockey [...]
Great work by QuantHockey on the NHL Average ages. Last season the Penguins were the oldest team in the NHL:
Now, that number for the Penguins is probably off because Brenden Morrow and Jarome Iginla are 150 years old. The Penguins seem to be headed down that road again though.
And that is where it gets interesting. Because the average age, especially in the playoffs...
Boston fans may still be a bit salty over how the trade deadline deal went down between the Bruins, Penguins and Jarome Iginla, but something tells us it won’t take like before the B’s faithful falls for the 17-year vet.
Iginla said on his introductory conference call that he likes Boston’s physical, aggressive style of play. He said he had narrowed all 30 teams down to the...

I don't think people realize how many games and times that Matt Cooke has been suspended by the NHL. Here's a break down of Cooke's illustrious history and the number of games that ended up sitting as a result of his bush league play. Like I said in another post, "I also have to wonder if the NHL...
He made the Bruins look pretty stupid in the spring but veteran forward Jarome Iginla is making the B’s look pretty damn good this summer.
The former Flame and future Hall of Famer left Boston’s Black and Gold high and dry for Pittsburgh’s Black and Gold at the trade deadline this season, despite the teams agreeing to terms on a deal that would have sent him to The Hub in exchange...
