Thoughts on Hamhuis

Hey guys, I'm a writer over at Pensburgh, and we've been talking quite a bit lately about Dan Hamhuis. I checked up on his stats and got a decent impression, but I'm writing this fan post because...

Individual PDO Numbers

I crunched some PDO numbers for an article I wrote over at Pensburgh and figured I'd re-post the big points here. I'm not sure if anyone has ever looked at individual PDO numbers in great...

PDO And What It Means


What is PDO and how predictive is it? Answers inside.

Cooke re-signs with the Penguins


The deal is for three years with a yearly salary cap hit of $1.8 million. The length of the contract is a bit surprising for Shero given Cooke's age and the fact that he's not part of the Penguins' core. But this is a good signing overall.

The Penguins' 1st Round Pick


The Penguins have the 20th pick in this year's NHL draft. Which players are likely on their radar? Check inside to find out.

Sidney Crosby Ranked No. 1 in Sporting News' 50 Greatest Players in Today's NHL


It was announced today that Sidney Crosby barely edged out Alex Ovechkin as Sporting News' best player in the NHL today. The panel that selected the players was composed of 121 hockey experts. Other notable Penguins include Evgeni Malkin (3) and Marc-Andre Fleury (24). I'm not sure how much stock to put in these rankings, as they have Chris Osgood at #48. Thoughts?

Penguins to open preseason against Detroit


The Penguins announced today that the first ever NHL game to be played at Consol Energy Center (Igloo 2.0?) will be against the Detroit Red Wings. The Penguins will also be playing Chicago and Columbus in the preseason.

Marc-Andre Fleury and Save Percentage: Part II


What happened to Marc-Andre Fleury this season? In-depth analysis inside provides an answer.

Pens Sign Defenseman Wagner


Steve Wagner is the defenseman we got in return for Nate Guenin. But at 26 years old, he's probably not going to be an impact player for the Penguins.

Pensburgh wrapup: Max Talbot


How did Max Talbot do this year? Info, stats, and analysis inside.

A Little Help Please: Sid and Geno's Line Mates


Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin did not have the best line mates in the league this year. But how did they compare to one another? Find out inside.

Marc-Andre Fleury and Save Percentage: Part I


What was up with Marc-Andre Fleury this year? A two-part series attempts to break down his save percentage and try to figure out why he saw a drop in numbers.

Penguins vs. Canadiens: Shot Quality


A blogger over at Brodeur is a Fraud (yes, that's the actual name of the site) looked at shots from the Pens-Habs series that were tracked according to location. He found that shots that went high were much more likely to go in than shots that were low. After eliminating some games from the consideration due to bad data, he found that the Habs had 39 high shots and the Pens had 37. The Habs did a better job at capitalizing on their chances, but this is some evidence that they had more high-quality opportunities.

Pensburgh wrapup: Craig Adams

Kris Letang's 2009-2010 Season


How did Kris Letang do this year? An in-depth look will help you figure it out.

Bruins Sign Seidenberg


It looks like the Penguins won't be able to sign the regular season leader in blocked shots this year. With Seidenberg's exit from the free agent market, I think Michalek just gained a lot of value.

The Penguins' Powerplay With and Without Gonchar


With the discussion of whether or not to re-sign Gonchar gaining momentum as July 1st gets closer, I wanted to look at just how valuable he really is to the Penguins' powerplay. Some say that he's...

Gonchar's Salary


Puck Prospectus took a look at some of the big free agents that will be available this summer, and Gonchar was one of them. Using Tom Awad's VUKOTA projection system, they estimated what Gonchar's production will be next year, and how much they think he's worth. He's the fourth one down on the page. Too much, too little, or just right?


An introduction to advanced baseball stats

Hey all, I'm a big hockey fan, and I've recently gotten into the advanced hockey stats culture and have enjoyed myself a lot. I've never been a big baseball fan because my team is the Pirates, and...


Penguins or Steelers?

I've had this question on my mind for a bit and I wanted to get everyone's thoughts. I became a die-hard Steelers fan about 7 years ago, and rooted for them with the vigor and passion we show for...


Who should win the Selke?

Ryan Kesler, Pavel Datsyuk and Jordan Staal have all been nominated for the Frank J. Selke trophy, which is awarded to the player that best excels in the defensive aspects of the game. Because my...

Penalty Killing Attributes

  Efficient penalty killing is important for every team. Not only can it stifle your opponent's momentum, but it gives your team something to build on going forward. I wanted to see which...


Crosby deserves the Hart

I posted this fanpost over at From the Rink because I had some of these ideas bouncing around in my head the past couple of days. I'm re-posting it here because I'd love to get some feedback and...


Who deserves the Hart trophy?

Hey everyone, I'm a Penguins fan and I got into a discussion the other day about which player is most deserving of the Hart trophy. I just posted a fanpost on From the Rink about why I thought...


How did Staal do in the playoffs?

Staal didn't have as great a showing in this year's playoffs compared to last year's (and of course, neither did the team), but I thought he was particularly underwhelming at times. Considering he...
