NHL Season is Over- Let's Wheel and Deal

It's the Monday after the Stanley Cup has been won and there are already some rumblings around the league. And as you may know, buyouts can begin today. (Unfortunately Scuderi is not eligible for...

Quick Hockey Talk

Inspired by Natasha, and because I'm bored. Dan Boyle, who recently had his rights traded to the Islanders, is most likely not going to sign with them. He said he would let them know by the end of...

Dupuis to have ACL surgery

This is a big blow, obviously, but if he is to miss the rest of the season, I do believe that means his salary can come off the books, and the Penguins can start looking for some kind of rental.

Holy Pittsburgh Tattoos

This may be the definition of too much.

Brief History of Hockey Fights

When you voice the sentence “Hockey is my favorite sport,” the most common response you will get revolves around the fighting issue. Why do they fight in hockey, do you like watching all of those...

Free Agency Thread

A lot of action already going on in Free Agency this July 5th. The Flyers still throwing money around signing Giroux to an 8 year extension, Daniel Alfredsson has left Ottawa for Detroit on a one...

Interesting read if you are having a slow day like I am.

Preds Put Gill on Waivers

I mean, he's been here before, but he is a $2 million cap hit. Is he an option if Letang doesn't pan out?

Shero, Bylsma on Team USA

Shero has been named associate GM of Team USA for the 2014 Olympics, and Bylsma will be named head coach. ***UPDATE*** While the original link does not mention Bylsma, this link does.

Milbury vs. the Penguins

+

Folks, when this series starts up on Saturday, and Mike Milbury starts his usual tirades against the Penguins, don't take it too personally or read too far into it. As the very cheesy video explains, Milbury has had a grudge against the Penguins for YEARS. And we did knock them out of the playoffs both years we won the Cup in the 90s. But do remember one thing: like most everyone, Milbury does hate Jeremy Roenick too.

Bortuzzo Dunk

I won't be surprised if the Sixers offer him a tryout.

PENS TRADE LOVEJOY TO DUCKS

We get a 5th round pick. Good for Lovejoy, good for us.

Goligoski Healthy Scratch for Dallas

I laughed at this, and then became very thankful Shero got rid of him and in return we now have Neal and Nisky. I am also not surprised.

Extra Attacker

Hey you jags, are we doing the Pensburgh Extra Attacker again this year? If so I think we need to make new names and leagues and all of that good stuff. I don't remember the sign in for my old one....

Giroux Named Flyers Captain

+

Even more absurd, is this quote that the geniuses at Broad Street conjured up: "Claude Giroux is the best player on the Flyers. He might just be the best player in the world." Easy there, children... if it's only your club calling your player the best in the world, he's most likely not the best in the world.

and [catcher Michael] McKenry is going to be back," Hurdle said in his final pregame media session of the season.

This was taken from the Pirates website. Though I think we still need a big hitting catcher to help fill the void, as long as Barajas is not back, I'm good.

"The Penguins are aware of the fact that coach Dan Bylsma has been forced to yank Fleury from at least one game in four of the team's past five series."

NHL's Best Players

4

NHL.com did a Best of the NHL list in alphabetical order. It goes from all time, to runners up, to current best in the NHL. The usual suspects are on there for both past and present. Of course, my only real problem is that they have Fleury as the best current player filed under the letter F. Crosby and Malkin are represented, of course,

17 year old Goalie Stones Sid

Yes, it is from Bleacher Report, which is a total hack website. But the videos were very cool to watch. Nothing to take away from Sid, the kid was not intimidated by stopping the stars. We need to sign this kid in a year or two.

Remaing FAs as of 7/27/12

I totally jacked this from NHL.com, but I'm citing them so it's a-ok. This is the list of remaining availalbe FAs. Forwards, which is what the Pens need, are all over 30. What's the best option,...

BT in Net tonight

11:32 AM: Brad Thiessen will be the starting goaltender for the Pens in tonight's game. Head coach Dan Bylsma had a few other udpates. Goalie Brent Johnson skated before practice for the first time in his rehab. Joe Vitale is day-to-day with an upper-body injury. "Brent Johnson was back on the ice today for the first time in his rehab, so it was good to see him back on the ice," Bylsma said. "We’ll see how he progresses here. Could get back to practice this week. Joe Vitale is day-to-day. Upper body." I'm excited because we're getting Thiessen some really good looks against some tough teams. The Jets are going to come out hard tonight as their still fighting for the playoffs.
