One of the more important decisions that Ray Shero will have to make this offseason will certainly be the Pascal Dupuis contract extension. Dupuis has been nothing short of terrific in his time with the Penguins. A strong argument could be made that Dupuis’ cap hit of 1.5M per season was one of the best cap values in the entire league. Most of the league knows Dupuis as the guy who gets to...

Sidney Crosby Falls Short in Hart Vote, Wins Second Career Ted Lindsay Award

  Source: Associated Press/Gene J. Puskar Penguins captain Sidney Crosby already has won many awards and trophies in his NHL career. He has won the Stanley Cup, the Hart trophy, the Maurice Rocket Richard trophy, the Art Ross trophy, and an Olympic gold medal.

NHL Awards Transcript: Sidney Crosby

Photo: cbssports.com QUESTION: Your thoughts on winning the award? Were you surprised missing as much time as you did at the end of the regular season? SIDNEY CROSBY: I don’t know. I think it was something that I knew I was nominated for, knew I had a chance. Yeah, I guess you never know until you get the word. It was nice. That’s not something that you’re thinking about...

When Letang was asked the other day what kind of money he’d be looking for in his contract ...

If you haven't read part one of Mike Colligan's Kris Letang breakdown, you should. [ THW ] Letang's future is really the main focus of the Penguins off season at this point. After what we saw Mark Streit get from the Flyers today, could Colligan's assertion that the Pens could pay Letang nine-million a year still be in play? Yikes.  

Ryan Wilson: Is Matt Cooke Worth the Trouble?

Is Matt Cooke worth the trouble? That is a question the Penguins organization, specifically Ray Shero, is going to have to ask when potential negotiations begin. Cooke is a double edged sword. It is no secret that he is a lightning rod for hate around the league. Obviously Cooke is guilty of committing some of the dirtier plays that we have seen in the past number of years (I’m...

Examining Evgeni Malkin’s New Contract with the Penguins

By: Ryan Kiray (@RyanK_THG) The Pittsburgh Penguins recently signed Evgeni Malkin to an eight-year deal worth $76 million. Malkin’s $9.5 million annual cap hit, $800,000 more than Sidney Crosby’s, will be second in the league only to Washington’s Alex Ovechkin at $9,538,642. From Malkin’s point of view, the contract is a home run; he will rake in piles of money, and, barring...

Eric Engels: Bruins Lock Down Hawks, Seidenberg, Bergeron, Briere and more...

1) Speaking with a Pittsburgh Penguins player yesterday, he said the toughest thing about playing the Bruins is how well they shut down the middle of the ice. They have a relentless forecheck when they're up a goal or two, and they suffocate the middle of the ice better than any team in the league does. And when the Bruins force those dump-ins, even against a skilled team...

It’s Starting to Look a Lot Like Pittsburgh

Watching the ineptness of the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final was eerily and scarily familiar to the flaccid performance by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference Finals. No sustained offensive zone time, physically outworked, inability to get to the net, seasoned stars making uncharacteristic mistakes and a completely impotent power play – sound...

Bill Guerin: The Intangible Difference by @ChicksDigHockey

The Pittsburgh Penguins entered 2009 with some issues in their organization. The 2008 Eastern Conference Champions never really approached conference dominance that next season. Saturday, February 14 of ‘09 typified their short comings of the season. The Pens went up 2-0 in Toronto and looked like they were going to win with relative ease. Instead, they folded like a cheap umbrella...

The Smarks by @ToonsBrian

smark (n.) fan of an industry, particularly in entertainment, familiar with the general backstage workings of that industry.I first became aware of “smarks” when I joined twitter and started following fellow professional wrestling fans.

Top Penguins One Hit Wonders by @evil_shero

With all the questions swirling around the Penguins off-season roster moves this summer it got me to thinking who are some of the more memorable "rental" players to wear the black and gold sweaters. I looked at any player who played less than 100 games with the Penguins and made an impact of some sort. No one reads these introductory paragraphs so ...Marian HossaAcquired...

Penguins Okay with Second Best

After reading Phil Krundle’s passionate, well-thought, and superbly crafted feature on the state of the Penguins (and coach Dan Bylsma), I almost didn’t post this piece. It’s not nearly as comprehensive as Phil’s, but it represents a different point of view. In that spirit I decided to post it: I never thought I’d see the day when the Penguins organization embraced being...
