SIMON DESPRES RUMORS

Anaheim Ducks: Winner of the NHL Trade Deadline?

@Penguins Fights: @Despres747 vs. @JVReemer21

Simon Despres vs James Van Riemsdyk Oct 11, 2014 3pd 19:27 2014-2015 Regular Season Not much of a battle but I'm liking this mean streak Despres has been on. After winning a preseason bout with Jason Zucker Despres took matters into his own hands after JVR sat on him after a lazy hit. JVR is not much of a scrapper and I think Despres was counting on it after getting hit with...

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 fact that...

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...

James Neal is suspended.  Evgeni...
