John Toperzer: Chicago Needs a Defender & Pittsburgh Has Defensive Depth: A Match?

Pens unable to sweep season-series Tuesday in Montreal Follow me on Twitter @JohnToperzer -Nobody disputes that Paul Martin has talent. The issue is whether it’s worth $5 million per year. If Martin was making $2-$3 million there wouldn’t be so much trade speculation and perhaps not as much angst directed toward him. -What was Jason Williams doing in the shootout...

Crosby returns to Penguins practice

Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby returned to practice Monday, but there is still no timetable for when the former MVP will return from a neck injury. The 24-year-old skated with his teammates in Montreal for the first time since being forced out of the lineup in early December following a brief return. He has been skating on his own in recent weeks. Last Tuesday, the Penguins...

STATS: The inevitable Paul Martin vs Sergei Gonchar comparsion

This one is tough. Gonch was an aging defenseman. He came off a not-so solid playoff ( see Travis Moen's goal in game 7) Paul Martin was the puck moving defenseman from the New Jersey Devils. He was younger, much less of a risk. From Rob Rossi that summer: The Penguins prefer a two-year term at no more than his previous $5 million annual salary, and Barry...

Staal and Despres Return to Practice

MONTREAL, Quebec – Two steps forward, one step back. The Penguins inched a little closer in the health department as center Jordan Staal and defenseman Simon Despres, both working through knee injuries, returned to team practice Monday at...

RECAP: See you next year. PENS LOSE.

One thing you can set your watch to. No matter the season, the record, or time of year, a loss in Montreal will drive you crazy. Losing in Montreal makes you think thoughts that aren't rational. It drives you to your kitchen where you just start eating things because you're so jammed up. You take your dog for a real long walk after losses in Montreal. You probably...

For Sid, misery does love company

He didn't look bad on a line with Steve Sullivan and Cal O'Reilly, even though he was playing out of position. He added a nice dimension to the No. 2 power play, as well, even though the second unit isn't exactly his natural habitat.
