There is a paradox that most of us face in our lives and hockey is no different. You need experience to get the full-time job for your career but you have to get the job to have that experience. The Pittsburgh Penguins have shown this to be true at the NHL level as their head coach Dan Bylsma and the rest of the organization haven't been too kind to their young players that they...

The Pittsburgh Penguins have claimed the winger off waivers, absolving the Rangers of his $1.55 million cap hit and clearing a spot on the 50 man reserve list.

Carl Hagelin-Dominic Moore-Derek Dorsett
Ryan McDonagh-Anton Stralman
Michael Del Zotto-Dan Girardi
