I am a Brandon Sutter fan. I’ll always love Crosby and Malkin but give me a good bottom six guy any day. I guess I’m just partial to the gritty blue collar player who adds character as well as skill. Give me a role player like Sutter or Max Talbot or Mike Rupp any day! Role players are as essential to a team’s success as goal scorers are. They won’t appear as such on...

Brandon Sutter is soft. He is probably one of the worst third-line centers in the NHL. But damn it all. He scored one goal, got hit in the face with a puck, got some stitches, and then came back and scored another. We’ve jobbed Sutter all year long. But he stepped up in the biggest game of the season. Nothing else you can say.
But he wasn’t the number-one star. That was Marc...

Things are getting ugly in Arizona. While fans continue to discuss the team tanking for Connor McDavid, the Coyotes are spiraling out of control. We’ve seen some strange things, such as Mike Smith jumping over the puck to avoid making a save.
Now Smith is helping the opposition a bit more directly by clearing the puck off of Brandon Sutter and into his own net. Meet the new Butt...
The 2015 NHL Trade Deadline is set for 3 p.m. on March 2, however that date doesn’t mean much to Jim Rutherford who has already executed four trades in his short tenure as Penguins general manager. The Penguins are once again atop the Metropolitan, and would have to experience a colossal collapse to fall out of the playoff picture, but if we have learned anything from...
The Pittsburgh Penguins roster is all but set next year as they have filled some big holes in free agency. They upgraded their defense, their bottom six, and their goaltending.
With restricted free agents Brandon Sutter and Nick Spaling left to sign, the Penguins could have very little room to make a signing to get their 13th forward. Who could that be? Let’s take a look.
Free-agency could be either one of the most exciting or one of the most boring times for the Pittsburgh Penguins this summer.
My money is on the latter.
With just over $15 million in cap space, you would think that the Penguins would be big players going into July, however given the fact that they only have two full lines under contract, the chances of them throwing big money to...
Perhaps one of the biggest bloopers in the history of the Pittsburgh sports station, Root Sports, they showed Brandon Sutter on air naked in the locker room. Kris Letang was eating pizza in front of him. We have a feeling this will be talked about for a long time.Go ahead, read the rest »
