PENGUINS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Kris Letang Can Buy 3,742 Honda Fits Over The Next Eight Years

There's an old saying among the car crowds…"Only smart people drive Hondas." The combination of relatively-inexpensive MSRP, fantastic gas mileage and parts that refuse to give out makes the company a true diamond in the rough. While some prefer to pay for the prestige of a luxury name on their automobiles, and in turn pay ridiculous amounts when said luxury parts...

The Truth About Not Extending Marc-Andre Fleury by @pghgirl15222

Recently Josh Yohe from the Tribune Review released an article noting that Marc-Andre Fleury will likely enter the 2014-2015 season without a contract extension. Rutherford was quoted in the article by stating that “I'm not in a hurry to do a contract with him” but then almost backtracks mentioning that “there’s no reason why he can't be our goalie for a long time...

Pens' Head Coach Mike Johnston Wants To "Lessen the Load" for Sidney Crosby

New Pittsburgh Penguins' head coach, Mike Johnston, told the media that he wants to "Lessen the load" for team captain Sidney Crosby. Johnston told Tribune-Review reporter Jason Mackey "Do we have to lessen the load? Yes. We have to ensure that other players on our team take some of the responsibility off his shoulders — both in leadership and also in performance...

Penguins Not In Rush To Give Marc-Andre Fleury Extension Before Season

Marc-Andre Fleury was once expected to be the goaltender of the Pittsburgh Penguins for a long time, but that was five years ago and a lot has changed. Since he led the Penguins to their third Stanley Cup championship in 2009, Fleury has been the primary, or one of the top reasons why Pittsburgh has failed to reach the Cup Final over the last four seasons. Fleury’s contract expires...

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 hurry to give Fleury 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. 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...
