In the summer of 2010, Shero was all about the Pens' blue line. He signed Paul Martin and Zbynek Michalek to lengthy deals. And now only Paul Martin remains. Michalek is gone.
His 2010-2011 season made Shero look like a genius. From even the first preseason game, we all could see that Michalek's size alone was something the Pens' blue line needed. Then as...
Pittsburgh Penguins center Jordan Staal has turned down a 10-year offer to remain with the team, The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported, citing sources.

Shortly after the completion of the first round of the NHL draft Friday night, the Coyotes acquired defenseman Zbynek Michalek from the Penguins in exchange for defenseman Harrison Ruopp, goaltender Marc Cheverie and the 81st selection in the draft.
The 29-year-old Michalek spent five seasons with the Coyotes from 2005-10 and is coming off a season in which he collected two goals...
There's no justifiable argument against Evgeni Malkin winning the Hart Memorial Trophy. During a Pittsburgh Penguins season beset by injuries up and down their lineup and with character role players forming much of the team's depth, Malkin alleviated much of the pressure on others to perform in Crosby's absence by shaking off injuries of his own to appear in 75 games...
Hart (Henrik Lundqvist/Evgeni Malkin/Steven Stamkos)
Who should win: Evgeni Malkin
This is a bit of a tough call. Both Malkin and Stamkos make a great case as to why they should win the Hart. Stamkos hit the 60 goal mark this season while Malkin hit the 50 goal mark and was the only player to crack the 100 point mark, which is why he will win it tonight. If that’s not enough...
