Did anyone expect defenseman Rob Scuderi to have a break-out game like he did Tuesday night against the Philadelphia Flyers? Saying that he had an impressive game...
The summer of 2013 is one that has already come back to haunt the Pittsburgh Penguins.
After suffering a sweep at the hands of the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference Finals, Pittsburgh found itself without a first or second round pick in the 2013 Entry Draft, leaving the system once again devoid of quality forward prospects.
They handed out massive extensions to two...
What a difference one year makes in the world of sports. Just one year ago on this exact date, the Pittsburgh Penguins signed Rob Scuderi to a four-year deal, worth $3.375 million per-year. Scuderi, who received the nickname "The Piece" thanks to his fantastic defensive performances during the 2008-2009 playoffs, helping the Penguins win the Stanley Cup playoffs, came back to the...
With all the talk of drafts and free-agency heating up, the one area you rarely hear mentioned in regards to the Pittsburgh Penguins is defenseman.
Don’t get me wrong, people have been been up on their soapbox for months about trading Rob Scuderi and whether or not the Pens should re-sign Matt Niskanen, however when it comes to drafting new talent and bringing in new faces vis...

However given how the Penguins have flamed out in the playoffs in years past, it’s almost second nature for Pens fans to start talking about getting...
Would Robert Bortuzzo be a better option than Rob Scuderi on D?
I could use a lot of different word to describe the kind of season and playoffs Rob Scuderi’s having for the Pittsburgh Penguins.
None of them are good.
Old. Slow. Flat. Past his prime. I could keep going, but for fear of a blood pressure spike, I’ll stop there.
The bottom line is this: Rob Scuderi...
I’m looking for Rob Scuderi. HAS ANYONE SEEN ROB SCUDERI??There’s a guy wearing #4 for the Penguins who kinda looks like Scuds but if you watch him play, you know right away he’s an impostor. This guy stood next to the post Saturday night and watched a puck go in the net and was totally ineffective in the neutral zone. This #4 took minor penalties in 3 straight games. So, clearly...
Few decisions in sports are more gut-wrenching than one to bench a time-honored veteran. But the Penguins face such a dilemma with defenseman Rob Scuderi.
To put things in perspective, the black and gold would never have won the Stanley Cup in 2009 without Scuderi. Who can forget his game-saving play in the waning seconds of Game 6 during the Finals? With Marc-Andre Fleury marooned...
