Brandon Sutter Primed for Career Season by @griffTHW

In coming to Pittsburgh, Brandon Sutter found himself with some large shoes to fill.  Effectively "replacing" Jordan Staal, the new guy in town landed in the shadow of a Stanley Cup champion and fan favorite, someone who did a little bit of everything for the Penguins.For some, Sutter will never completely fill those shoes but he certainly made strides in emerging...

The Pens – The Good, The Bad, and The Week Ahead

The Pittsburgh Penguins have way too many days off in October. That much is for sure. But the slow start for the Pens allows for the team to get in plenty of practice and continue to get accustomed to Mike Johnston’s style of play. Although, if we judge based on the first two outings for the Pens, they’ve become accustomed very quickly. Don’t get me wrong, though. There are...

Preseason games are especially hard to watch. It feels even worse this preseason. But the Penguins are getting some good stuff from third liners and their young D. Some ****: Five biggest things about this game Bennett – Sutter All good things for this line. In the first period, they had a few shifts keeping the puck deep and cycling. Beau Bennett has easily been the Penguins’...

THIRD PERIOD NOTES AND RECAP OF FIRST PRESEASON GAME – PENS LOST 2-1

Had no idea Tony Granato was an assistant coach with the Wings. Biggest story of the night. Paul Martin didn’t seem concerned about playing, really. Penguins got a powerplay early in the third. Bennett and Sutter seem to be building chemistry. Farnham tried to fight some guy. Really strange performance by him. Spaling and Comeau got some work killing penalties. Probably a combo...

Penguins Need Some Nasty

I give new Penguins GM Jim Rutherford high marks for his off-season moves. Faced with dire cap constraints, he refused to overpay the team’s free agents, signed skilled defenseman Christian Ehrhoff to a bargain contact, and inked key RFAs such as Brandon Sutter and Nick Spaling to new deals. Along the way JR significantly upgraded the team’s bottom six. The rebuild is 99 percent...

Brandon Sutter Re-Signs for Two Years

Yes, the big Penguins news today was Kris Letang getting a haircut. However, in other news, Brandon Sutter has re-signed with the Penguins for two years. The deal will pay him an average of $3.3 million per season. It’s a short-term deal, but considering that some people expected Sutter to get $4 million or more per year, it’s a deal that is good for the Pens’ salary cap situation.

Pens GM aims to strike deal with Sutter by next week

Depth was one of the biggest knocks on the 2013-14 Pittsburgh Penguins, so it’s no surprise that’s been a focus during this offseason (maybe even to the detriment of their higher-end). Such a change of pace might help to explain why they’re taking some time to reach a deal with Brandon Sutter. On the bright side, new GM Jim Rutherford told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that...

Canes’ top draft pick hopes to make NHL quickly

Being a first-round draft pick – even a top 10 draft pick – carries no guarantees when it comes to playing in the NHL. That’s especially true for defensemen. Haydn Fleury would like to think he’ll be an exception, that he can play his way onto the Carolina Hurricanes’ roster this year and make the jump from junior hockey to the NHL.
