We'll start this one by saying we can't even remember who the Pens' "enforcer" was last year. Steve McIntyre? It might have been Eric Godard. Not really important. Arron Asham played the role, as well.
The Pens have decided to change things up a bit and, instead of going for an ooga-ooga type of enforcer, they've gone for somebody that can skate and has a hint of speed. Enter Tanner Glass.
We'll look into him more as the season approaches, but Tanner Glass is now a Penguin.

Tomas Vokoun must really love the number 29. He must love it so much that when faced with a new teammate already wearing the number, he decides to flip it to #92, the weirdest goalie number of all time possibly.
So, what's with Vokoun's affinity for 29? MAF's usage of the number most likely has something to do with Canadiens goaltender Ken Dryden wearing the...
We've been playfully making fun of Kris Letang for going to the KHL for like 6 minutes.
MAF did that today and it is great.
Based on Fleury's reaction you can tell that Letang is going to get made fun of for a while.

Sidney Crosby and nearly a dozen of his Penguins teammates worked out at a suburban Pittsburgh ice rink on Monday, just as they did during the four-month NHL lockout.
Only this time, the players were wearing their familiar Pittsburgh practice sweaters instead of jerseys promoting the NHL Players Association. It was a welcome return for the Penguins following the lockout's end...
The Penguins issued a statement on the lockout today:
To our Penguins Fans and Community:
We offer our apology. There is nothing we can say to explain or excuse what has happened over the past four months.
However, now that the NHL is back, we want to assure you that the Pittsburgh Penguins will do everything we can to regain your trust and show how much we value your...
Ray Shero's signing of Tomas Vokoun might be one of the most important moves he's ever made. Teams with a solid 1-2 punch between the pipes are gonna have a decided advantange, as all teams will be staring 3- and 4-game weeks in the face, not to mention the likely possibiity of double-digit back-to-back situations, and every game is going to carry importance.

And brace yourselves.
Is the blood boiling yet?
The Penguins haven't played since April 22, 2012. If the reports hold true as of this evening and the regular season begins on January 19, 2013, that means just about nine months will have passed between Penguins games.
Sure, we had the rest of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Sure, we had...
