PAUL MARTIN RUMORS & GOSSIP

The Assists and the One-Timers

As the NHL season rolls on, I am hoping to make this a semi-regular feature here. What is this exactly? Good question, theoretical reader in my head. This is the Assists and the One-Timers. The Assists will (hopefully) be me answering questions from you good folks that got suckered into reading these posts. They will hopefully be Pens-related (or even NHL-related), and will be thought...

You Couldn't BE More Wrong About: Paul Martin by @griffTHW and @BrianK_PI

You Couldn't BE More Wrong is a new segment that Sean Griffin and I put together, naturally arising from the fact that we seem to frequently take the opposite sides of issues as they pertain to the Penguins. In case you missed last week's post, we debated Marc-Andre Fleury's future in Pittsburgh.Though last week's column didn't have a poll, I've arbitrarily...

HotTake Tuesday

What’s in a name? A name is just a name, right? We’re switching things up a little this week and renaming BagSkate Tuesday to the more appropriate “HotTake Tuesday.” We were providing the hot takes anyway, might as well serve them up appropriately. Would you give up Sutter/Martin/Pouliot for Evander Kane? – Eric C. Richter: It kind of depends on how hurt you are for a top...

Why the Penguins Should Trade Paul Martin

Michael Miller / Wikipedia The Pittsburgh Penguins have just been eliminated from the 2013/2014 NHL Playoffs – yet another disappointing season since winning the Stanley Cup in 2009. As a result GM Ray Shero has already been relieved of his duties and HC Dan Bylsma’s future with the Penguins depends on the decision of the new GM, once Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle have decided...

Paul Martin: An Exception to an Underwhelming Series by @griffTHW

The Pittsburgh Penguins are lucky.  They're lucky they find themselves knotted at two in a series in which they've largely been outplayed.  The club's stars continue to underperform, countless Penguins parade to the penalty box as a result of undisciplined play and the Blue Jackets consistently outwork an opponent seemingly content to win or lose based solely on...

What Paul Martin’s return means for Pittsburgh’s defense

Mercifully, Paul Martin made his return against the Winnipeg Jets last night after sitting out 18 games with a broken hand he sustained during the Olympic Games in Sochi. He looked in top form, scoring the final goal to ice the game and the Metropolitan Division title for the Penguins on a beautiful one timer from the high slot. But what does his return mean to Pittsburgh’s defensive...

Paul Martin Returning At The Right Time For Pens by @MadChad412

He  is the not the healthy defenseman the Pittsburgh Penguins deserve, but he  is the one that they need right now. The Pittsburgh Penguins have been ravaged by injuries this season, leading the league with the most man-games lost to injury, but they are about to get healthy at the right time. With only eight left on the schedule, it appears that defenseman Paul Martin will return...
