Starting next Thursday the puck will drop on a new season for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Much like preseason in any sport, it gives the fans a taste of what to expect from the team and give a look at some younger talent.

Despite his age, Derrick Pouliot could be NHL ready.

Marc-Andre Fleury will have to step up to shoulder the load with Vokoun out long term.
As if the Pittsburgh Penguins goaltending situation couldn’t get any cloudier, news broke a few days ago that Penguins back-up net-minder Thomas Vokoun would be out indefinitly with a blood clot in his pelvis.
GM Ray Shero made the announcment at a press conference after a preseason game against...
The Penguins are in an uncomfortable spot at the NHL's most important position.
Marc-Andre Fleury — the franchise goalie who was benched because of ineffectiveness in the Stanley Cup playoffs and is coming off management's mandated sessions with a sports psychologist — suddenly is the franchise's lone proven goalie.
Tomas Vokoun star of the Penguins' playoff...

It's not every day that a waiver...
The Pittsburgh Penguins didn't panic when the bitter disappointment of last spring's sweep at the hands of the Boston Bruins wore off.
If anything, the Penguins went the other way. While other NHL powers underwent substantial roster overhauls, Pittsburgh did what it could to keep the core of one of the league's most consistent winners in tack.
The Penguins awarded coach...

Welcome back Pens fans! If you’re new or have forgotten what I do in the postgame thoughts, here’s a quick introduction/recap. Speaking of, don’t expect recaps. It’s purely thoughts and analysis of specific plays and players. I hate +/-, so I do my own goal assessments and award a “+” if a player contributes to a goal for and a “-“ if a player is at fault for a goal...

The Jussi went loose-y during the
Penguins preseason game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday, but in
the end his natural hat trick was not enough to defeat the newly aligned
Marc-Andre Fleury gave Pens fans a
reason to have anxiety after allowing two goals on three shots, but seemed to
settle in the net further into the game.
He will have...

Crosby and Malkin will both play tonight. This is the first preseason game that the Two-Headed Monster has been together. Jeff Zatkoff will start in goal for Pittsburgh. The Penguins won the first preseason match-up between these two teams.
Veteran forward Brenden Morrow patiently waited to see the situation around the league in his search for a contract and it finally paid off. Morrow is headed to the St. Louis Blues.
Morrow had been picking up some interest as training camps rolled along and was mulling over the offers. According to Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com he liked the offer from the Blues enough to take it.
I'd like to introduce a new format for my Monday column here at Pens Initiative called "Mad Monday with Mad Chad". In short, it's basically going to be me ranting about the Pittsburgh Penguins for the good and the bad. So here we go.

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,
For years now, Oilers’ opponents have looked at the pre-game lineup sheet in search of the type of player who might deter those kinds of plays, and they’ve seen an open stretch of highway.
