PENGUINS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Bring Back the Fun by @Nick422

The pieces are in place, aside from a tinker here and there, and we finally have an idea of what our 2014-15 Pittsburgh Penguins will look like.  They'll be deeper, younger, and lacking some very familiar faces.  The main goal, as always, for the new group may remain win the Cup but there's a secondary goal for this squad of Penguins:Bring back the fun.Go ahead, read the rest »

Penguins aren’t in rush to re-sign Fleury

Although the Pittsburgh Penguins failed to live up to expectations in the 2014 playoffs, at least this time goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury escaped relatively unscathed. Before the 2013-14 campaign, Fleury had struggled in the Penguins’ recent postseason runs, which put his status as the team’s long-term starter into question. It looks like his solid playoff showing hasn’t put...

The Reality of Pascal Dupuis' Return From Injury by @ChicksDigHockey

When the 2014-15 hockey season opens, a lot of things will be different about the Pittsburgh Penguins. Familiar faces are gone and in their places will be those we only know as opponents. One of the returning favorites will be Pascal Dupuis who hasn't played since he injured his knee in December when Marc Methot hit Sidney Crosby, which propelled Crosby into Dupuis. His knee...

Penguins “not in a hurry” to give Fleury a new contract

Marc-Andre Fleury may end up playing with the Penguins beyond 2014-15, but for now his contract status is on hold. Penguins GM Jim Rutherford commented on contract negotiations, stating that he’s not in any hurry to get a deal done, but he’s confident that Fleury is Pittsburgh’s goalie. Rutherford’s comments, as seen on Trib Live, reveal some interesting information about...

Pittsburgh Penguins Head Coach Mike Johnston Wants To “Lessen The Load” On Sidney Crosby

from Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Johnston talked with Crosby in Pittsburgh, and then again in Nova Scotia — Johnston is from Dartmouth, Crosby from Cole Harbour — and was impressed with how Crosby handles himself off the ice. “Look, if you want to have a leader in sports, the first thing I think the leader has to do is set an example,” Johnston...

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...

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.

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...

Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby was challenged by teammate Craig Adams and made good on it by accepting the “Ice Bucket Challenge.” Crosby then challenged teammates Pascal Dupuis, Marc-Andre Fleury and Kris Letang to do the same, which is how the challenge works. The only complaint is that Crosby should have been mixing up that […] The post Sidney Crosby joins growing...
