This was going to be an article about the possible forward line combinations and defense pairings but with the news that captain Sidney Crosby played the entire post season with an injury was revealing.

Coaches, Ovechkin influenced Niskanen in picking Caps

As a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins, defenseman Matt Niskanen had his fair share of experience playing against the rival Washington Capitals, but he was also watching them for a different reason. “Really my whole career, I’ve always kind of kept an eye on the Caps, because of (Alex) Ovechkin, so it’s just a fun team to watch and has been for a long time.

Grading the Pittsburgh Penguins free agency

Sidney Crosby: The Decision (a fable)

The majority of people who are reading this are for the most part sports fans. I say "for the most part" because while it may be implied that you came to read an article on a hockey website, you still may only be a fan of the Penguins. For that matter, you may simply be a fan of Crosby and/or Malkin by default being born and raised in Pittsburgh.But assuming you are in...

Free Agent Frenzy?

Following up a successful draft weekend, GM Jim Rutherford dipped his toe into the free agent market with signings that all epitomize the term value. The best bargain signing by far was bringing in Christian Ehrhoff on a one year deal at $4 million.

Jim Rutherford Made The Right Moves

from Sam Page of Sports Illustrated, Rutherford’s strategy for fixing this hasn’t so much been to bolster the bottom half as to erase the traditional top six/bottom six divide completely. His first move—trading Neal for Hornqvist and Spaling—typified this mentality. He parted with the team’s best winger for two forwards whose odd skill sets allowed them to play all...

Pittsburgh Penguins: Out With The Old, In With The New by @pghgirl15222

Last season ended exactly like most have in recent years; with a stink of disappointment. The Penguins of the 2013 began as a team constantly finding ways to overcome injures that might have cost other teams their whole season. They finished with a record of 51-24-7, with a debilitating 529 man games lost. I am not certain, but I believe there was an average of 6 men lost per game...
