One might think that having one of the best offenses in hockey and acquiring Brenden Morrow from the Stars might be enough for Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Ray Shero to be satisfied with his team’s forwards mix. Apparently, that’s not necessarily the case.
According to ESPN.com, the Penguins are still among the teams interested in Flames forward Jarome Iginla. There were some who thought the Pens may be done dealing after they acquired Morrow on Sunday and followed that up by adding defenseman Douglas Murray from the San Jose Sharks on Monday. Again, it doesn’t sound like that’s the case.
Pittsburgh also leads the league in goals scored, so it’s not like they need the help, but there’s no denying the potential benefit of adding Iginla. Iginla’s one of the best goal scorers of his generation, and while he’s not producing at his usual rate, he’s still a solid option. The 35-year-old has nine goals and 13 assists in 30 games this season.
It sure sounds like the Penguins, who are...

Talk about a confusing night. I shut off my computer, and phone at 1:00 am on Wednesday, March 27th with the thought that Iginla to the Bruins was essentially completed. Conflicting reports had been surfacing all night on the Twitter-verse, but general consensus was that Iginla was indeed going to Boston. When I woke up this morning,...

If you believed Ray Shero would stand pat, as he did last season, and not add a few pieces to an already elite team, shame on you.If the you hesitated to jump for joy because you thought the price for Brenden Morrow seemed a little too high, you're not alone. After all, Joe Morrow was a very good defensive prospect with a ton of potential as a Pittsburgh Penguin. And while...
Back in March 2011, the Dallas Stars signed a player few outside of the organization or those who don't closely follow the Western Hockey League (WHL) knew much about in a young defenseman named Brenden Dillon. The big, young blueliner had spent four seasons skating with the Seattle Thunderbirds of the WHL and Stars brass saw much to like in the 6-foot-2 defenseman for his size...
