PENGUINS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Bylsma goes on the record (a bit) for first time since Pens firing

Dan Bylsma might have some hard feelings after being let go by the Pittsburgh Penguins this summer, but he certainly didn’t air those grievances during his first newspaper interview since that happened. Instead, he pretty much raved about what once was to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review’s Rob Rossi. “I think we were a model,” Bylsma said. “We had stability, great stability...

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

In what might be the least surprising thing you’ll read on this website: If the Penguins are going to push for the Stanley Cup this season, it’s up to Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to make it happen. 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...

Close your eyes.No, on second thought, don't close them.  It's impossible to read that way.Figuratively close you eyes and think back to 2005.  That was the year Sidney Crosby got drafted.  I'm sure you remember the excitement of that moment and dreaming about all the promise that the future would hold.Well, Crosby has played in 550 games since then and is about to...

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...

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...

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. Ian Altenbaugh (Hockey’s Future...

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...
