A look at the future of Simon Despres with @MadChad412 and @H_P_Hockey

The Pittsburgh Penguins can't seem to catch a break when it comes to injuries. I guess we all we were all kidding ourselves if we thought that the Pens' players that were representing their countries in Sochi, for the Olympics, were all going to make it through without an injury. Defenceman Paul Martin injured his wrist and will now be out 4-6 weeks. That, along with the...

Despres back to AHL as Penguins defense corps continues to get healthy

Simon Despres just wants to play some defense. On the surface, getting Despres ice time, even at practices, is significant in Penguins general manager Ray Shero's decision to re-assign the defenseman to the AHL on Thursday. “We've got a lot of depth,” Despres said. The Penguins are not blessed with opportunities for even their best prospects when the defense is near...

Pittsburgh Penguins trade rumors

Mike Cammalleri As the 2013-2014 NHL season winds closer and closer to the month-long Olympic break in February, the window for teams to acquire new talent via trades is shrinking. A week after the Olympics end, the NHL has set their annual trade deadline day for March 5th, leaving teams with little time to try and ink any deals before they start their final run at the playoffs....

Penguins Update: Simon Sez…Despres Needs to Play

There’s no denying it. The Pittsburgh Penguins enjoy a wealth of riches when it comes to defensemen. Thanks to the drafting and bold maneuvering of GM Ray Shero, the Pens possess no fewer than a dozen defensemen (counting prospect Scott Harrington) who could be skating a regular shift in the NHL. That’s enough to stock two teams. Of all the d-men in the Penguins’ organization...

Penguins Update: Despres Returns; D’Agostini Waived

It’s getting so you can’t tell who’s on the ice and who’s in the hospital ward for the Penguins these days. In rapid succession the club lost Beau Bennett (wrist surgery), Tanner Glass (broken hand) and, now, top defenseman Paul Martin (broken tibia). Combined with previous injuries to defensive stalwart Rob Scuderi and forward Chuck Kobasew and the loss of winger Matt D’Agostini—who...

Senators’ Chris Neil destroys Penguins’ Simon Despres

Halfway through the second period of the Ottawa Senators-Pittsburgh Penguins game on Monday night, Senators forward Chris Neil absolutely obliterated Penguins defenseman Simon Despres.  Neil was given a two-minute minor for charging on the play, despite the fact that he glided right into Despres.  The only reason this was called a penalty was because of the magnitude of the hit...
