Crosby Is Kinda Good

87

I was just cruising through some stats at NHL.com, and I noticed that Crosby led the league in even strength points. That wasn't surprising; what was surprising is the lead he has over the next closest player...

Thoughts on the Penguins' season

Tangradi Recalled

Looks like his transfer to Wheeling was a move to get around some contractual obligations. Go Pens!!

Puck Stops Here Thinks The Michalek Contract Will Be One To Regret

42

I'm curious to hear what everyone thinks. I've written in the past about this signing here and here. Needless to say, I disagree with The Puck Stops Here.

Report: Afinogenov to the KHL

54

It looks like the Penguins won't have the option of trying to sign Maxim Afinogenov to a contract for the upcoming season. I would say that the chances of Ray Shero picking up a forward on the market right now are very, very slim.

"At the start of the day...July 1st, we were pretty confident we were going to be signing with Pittsburgh, because they obvisouly had my rights at the time...and we talked numbers and their deal was right there too, but we told them we wanted to look into free agency...by the time we got around to hearing back from those teams on July 1st, Pittsburgh had kinda moved on...."

Dan Hamhuis, while appearing on Vancouver's 100.5 The Peak radio station. I guess we owe him quite a bit, since his refusal allowed Shero to pick up two players that are each better than Hamhuis.

The League’s Best Even-Strength Scorers

151

Jonathan Willis over at Hockey or Die takes a look at which players have been the biggest point producers over the last three years at even strength. The list is a collection of the best talent in the NHL, and we're all pretty familiar with the guy who's number one. I'll give you a hint: he's really good at hockey...

Why The Kovalchuk Contract Is Unique

Those who are upset at the NHL's dismissal of the Kovalchuk contract say it's unfair because they didn't dismiss the contracts for Chris Pronger, Henrik Zetterberg, Rick Dipietro, Marian Hossa, J...

Mikko Koivu Or The Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom?

Hey all,  I'm a big Penguins fan, but I've taken quite an interest in the recent Koivu signing. I stumbled upon the reaction over at behind the net, so I figured I'd check out Koivu's stats and see...

"You still see a lot of the good old boys club out there and there are a lot of close-minded people in hockey," Watkins said. "But I give the Penguins so much credit. They aren't like that. They see the value in player development."

From Josh Yohe's article at the Tribune Review. It's a pretty cool read about skating at the Penguins' development camp.

Penguins Re-Sign Forward Chris Conner

8

The deal is a one year, two-way contract that would pay Conner $550,000 at the NHL level. He was one of the better call-ups this year, so I think this is a good signing.

Randy Sexton Named Penguins Assistant Director of Amateur Scouting

Even when Ray Shero isn't signing players, he's still getting stuff done behind the scenes. Sexton was a former GM for Florida and Ottawa, so he's a great addition to the Penguins' scouting staff.
