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 the young guys fit though. Pens D is set we thought: Letang-Orpik Martin-Scuderi ( Even though we said we aren't that pumped, the Martin-Scuderi pairing gives us a boner) Niskanen-Despres Engo? No clue how a young guy cracks the roster. Pens sign Kobasew In his annual PTO contract signing Shero choose Chuck Kobasew. Kobasew played on the AVs last season. Speaks volumes of the forward depth. ugh. Max Talbot stuff Saw this today... Max Talbot very relieved his grandfather found safe and ok in suburbs of Montreal after disappearing yesterday — Tim Panaccio (@tpanotchCSN) September 11, 2013   In other news Max Talbot still missing from 2010-2013.
