It’s all on Crosby, Malkin to make it work in Pittsburgh

Yes, we know they’re the two best players on the team by far. Heck, they’re two of the best players in the league. They’ve both won MVP awards and they were vital to winning...

Chrome logo for 2015 NHL All-Star Game?

It seems like it’s been a long time since we, the fans, have actually been happy with one of the latest, greatest jersey reveals from our favorite NHL teams. For whatever reason, teams seem to love that random piping (looking at you, Colorado Avalanche) and other awful designs *cough*Buffalo Sabres*cough*. In regards to the jerseys worn in the NHL All-Star game, they’ve been...

The Mismanagement of the Defense

Much has been made about the large number of defensive prospects in the Pittsburgh Penguins system the last several years because of the propensity of Ray Shero using high draft picks on this position. Defensive players drafted and signed as undrafted free agents under his regime that are no longer with the team could fill out an adequate bottom two pairings. Jake Muzzin, Brain Strait...

New goalie Greiss’ presence threatens Zatkoff as Penguins backup

Jeff Zatkoff still talks about The Game. A lot of athletes have a key moment they think about in capital letters, but Zatkoff’s comes with a twist. It not only was the Penguins goaltender’s NHL debut, but he also flopped in it. Pressed into duty as the team’s backup to Marc-Andre Fleury last season after a blood-clot issue felled Tomas Vokoun, Zatkoff started the fourth...

Sidney Crosby set to reclaim Art Ross

It’s been a long time since the NHL has seen a back-to-back winner of the Art Ross Trophy as the NHL’s leading scorer. Since the 2000-01 season, when Jaromir Jagr won the award for the fourth consecutive time and the fifth time in seven seasons, no one has been a repeat winner of the award and just two players – Pittsburgh Penguin teammates Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin –...

Penguins penalty kill must improve

Anyone who watched the Pittsburgh Penguins under the previous regime of Dan Bylsma knows that the team had more than it’s fair share of weaknesses. A lack of scoring depth,  shaky goaltending, injuries, and oftentimes sloppy neutral-zone coverage were all major factors in a Jekyll-and-Hyde season that saw Pittsburgh jump between looking like an elite contender and a seriously...

Why I am an Optimist for this Coming Season

In a word, DEPTH. For the first time since the end of the 2013 season the Penguins will have true forward depth and that season was augmented by unprecedented trade deadline acquisitions the likes of which will likely never occur again. They have not started a season with this much depth since the Consol Energy Center opened. Counting Kasperi Kapanen, the team has nine players who...

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...
