Why not Jayson Megna over Taylor Pyatt by @MadChad412

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...

Penguins claim Taylor Pyatt off waivers

The Taylor Pyatt era in New York has come to an end. 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. Over his 70 games for the Rangers, Pyatt was a pretty big disappointment, putting together a line of 6-6-12 over the season and a half. Tweet

Rangers place Taylor Pyatt on waivers

Per Pat Leonard, it looks like Taylor Pyatt and John Moore will be healthy scratches for the second straight game. AV is a coach that doesn’t like to change things up following a win, so this is relatively unexpected. Also per Leonard, Cam Talbot will start tonight in net. This will be the first time Talbot starts two straight games. Talbot has not allowed more than two goals in...

Pyatt, who was concussed after taking a head shot from Columbus Blue Jackets defender Fedor Tyutin, has not played since that game in Columbus on November 7. Pyatt has been the target of a lot of criticism from the fans for his play this season, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that everyone...
