5 things @penguins need to do this offseason @griffTHW

On some level, the 2015 Stanley Cup Final must have evoked feelings of jealousy among Penguins’ fans everywhere. Essentially, the series pitted a squad embodying what Pittsburgh represented a few years ago against the club currently writing the resume once reserved for the Pens. On one side, the Lightning find themselves potentially set up to dominate the Eastern Conference for...

Would You Trade Brandon Sutter For Frans Nielsen? by @ChicksDigHockey

I am a Brandon Sutter fan. I’ll always love Crosby and Malkin but give me a good bottom six guy any day. I guess I’m just partial to the gritty blue collar player who adds character as well as skill.  Give me a role player like Sutter or Max Talbot or Mike Rupp any day! Role players are as essential to a team’s success as goal scorers are. They won’t appear as such on...

RECAP: Game 82. Brandon Sutter and Marc-Andre Fleury save the season. Pens win 2-0.

Brandon Sutter is soft. He is probably one of the worst third-line centers in the NHL. But damn it all. He scored one goal, got hit in the face with a puck, got some stitches, and then came back and scored another. We’ve jobbed Sutter all year long. But he stepped up in the biggest game of the season. Nothing else you can say. But he wasn’t the number-one star. That was Marc...

GIF: Darren Helm spears Mike Smith in the junk

We’ve mocked Mike Smith a lot over the last few weeks. First, he jumped over a shot and allowed a bizarre goal. Next, he shot the puck off of Brandon Sutter and into his own net. What could possibly follow up those two incidents? How about a spear in the junk from Darren Helm? Smith has a reputation for diving, but it looks like Helm makes decent contact.

Now Smith is helping the opposition a bit more directly by clearing the puck off of Brandon Sutter and into his own net. Meet the new Butt...

RECAP: Game 69. LOL. Pens get blitzed 5-1.

Some guy got taken out on a stretcher at Mario’s bar in the South Side this weekend because he drank too much during the St. Patrick’s Day celebration in Pittsburgh. He’s about the only other person who had a worse weekend than the Penguins. Sidney Crosby returned from his mysterious injury but didn’t do much. The rest of the Penguins didn’t really look interesting in...

Penguins Update: Sutter on the Rise

It’s been an up-and-down for the Penguins Brandon Sutter, to say the least. A streaky scorer by nature, the 26-year-old struggled mightily through the middle part of the season following a solid start. During a 31-game stretch from November 22 through early February, the Huntington, New York native was a minus-11 with a paltry four goals. A virtual revolving door of linemates didn’t...

Line Production: Even Strength last 10 games is sad.

Via Dobber’s. This is line production at even strength for the last 10 games: 1. Where would the Penguins be without David Perron? 2. Remember that faction of the fanbase that didn’t like the Brandon Sutter contract? We get it now. 3.  Really not enjoying the Mark Arcobello era.
