There had been some internet reports about Diaz threatening to bolt back to Europe in case he didn’t make the team. It appears for now that he will report to Hartford, but...

Megna/Diaz clear waivers

Both Raphael Diaz and Jayson Megna cleared waivers this afternoon, and will report to the Hartford Wolf Pack. Megna clearing was no surprise, but it is relatively surprising that Diaz cleared.

Five prospects that could impact the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2014

It’s hard to believe that we’re already talking about next year for the Pittsburgh Penguins given that their season ended a little over a month ago, however with the draft and free-agency fast approaching, it’s as good a time as ever to talk about what next year’s Penguins may look like. A shake-up is coming, and with so many young, highly-reguarded prospects (at least on...
