Jets waive Tangradi

The Winnipeg Jets made their first significant move of the preseason on Friday, placing forward Eric Tangradi on waivers. Tangradi, 25, has appeared in 91 games for the Jets over the last two seasons, scoring four goals and 10 points. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound power forward has never lived up to the promise that saw him go 42nd overall at the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, but had been a fairly...

A Brutally Honest Look at the Pens Prospect Pool (Pt. 2)

By Nick Richter and Andy Hughes One thing Ray Shero was fantastic at was his ability to paint a great picture of certain guys in the Pittsburgh Penguins prospect pool. By painting these pictures, Shero was able sell guys high and he was able to create hype in the fanbase about these players, like Eric Tangradi, and we all know how that ended.

Pittsburgh Penguins vs New York Islanders: The Rivalry by @ChicksDigHockey

What makes a true hockey rivalry (not one manufactured for TV)? The more bitter the hockey rivalry, the better. There has to be bad blood; the kind that comes from blood spilled and championships lost. There has to be a deep-seated hate that makes losing hurt the most. The Pens and Isles have such a history. I went back as far as 1975 to look at this rivalry. The two teams faced...

Jets shuffle deck on power play

With the Winnipeg Jets power play struggling, Claude Noel, head coach Claude Noel made a couple of changes in an effort to give it a spark. The Jets gave the third unit of Mark Scheifele, Michael Frolik and Eric Tangradi more work than usual, but the move that raised a few eyebrows came during the third period, when Dustin Byfuglien jumped up to forward for a pair of power-play...

RECAP: Game 15. Pens beat Blue Jackets 3-0.

  Five biggest talking points from this game: 1. What will it be like for the Penguins when Malkin starts filling the net? He is snake-bitten a bit, but based on his career stats he starts picking it up in November. 2. Columbus isn't terrible. They just aren't ready to play with the big boys yet. 3. It is early, but if the playoffs started today...
