A few notes from today’s training camp:• While Johnston has suggested no one should read into line combinations too much he did mention today that we can “read a little bit” into the Downie, Sutter, and Bennett combo. Johnston stated he is “trying to look for someone to fit with Sutter, who’d be a good long-term fit and add balance and depth to our group.” • On...
Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin both did not skate in todays open practice. But everyone else did. And they skated hard. Here are some thoughts
IT IS COLD AS **** IN CONSOL
Dejan mentioned players complaining about the ice yesterday in his writeup. [ DK On Pittsburgh Sports] Consol is roughly -24 degrees so if you plan on taking a trip down there dress accordingly.
Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby was not on the ice with Group A for the practice session at training camp Saturday. The Penguins did not give a reason for his absence.
Crosby did skate Friday, one day after it was announced he would be held out of the start of training camp, and said he planned to skate Saturday if nothing changed.
Crosby and usual linemates Pascal Dupuis...

That’s a sharp jersey. Great to see the Penguins back in “Pittsburgh” gold.

Post GazetteI originally wanted to do a study to see who the most profound Penguins rentals were but it took me down this rabbit hole. Who made the most of their time in Pittsburgh? It turned into a different project all together. So I filtered all my results into less than 100 games played in the Black and Gold and who had the largest PPG in their time skating with Stanley on their...
The Pittsburgh Penguins unveiled a new third jersey for the upcoming season on Friday, and the new alternates are very similar to the sweaters that the team used to wear in the 80s. The new third goes back to the black and yellow color scheme that the Penguins used for decades prior to switching to more of a gold look in the early 2000s.
The thirds are pretty fantastic and I wouldn’t...
Hey, look. The Penguins did something right with their jerseys for a change.
They just released these jerseys as their third jerseys for this season:
4. Hope Crosby didn’t get injured from spinning in that vid.
3. If you can’t afford the new one, at least there are places now to get a discount, and you don’t have to be accused of “Jersey Fouls...

These injuries are not considered serious and are said to be sitting out for precaution. #488677275 / gettyimages.comAccording to reporter Josh Yohe, Crosby left a workout early on Tuesday. Must have gotten hurt then. Did appear at team...
This kind of slipped under the radar. The Penguins new third jersey is going to be released for sale tomorrow:
So, one would think we’ll get to see it. Rumors have swirled all year about it. As long as they aren’t blue, we’re in.
from Rob Rossi of he Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,
No team in this city is better at controlling its message than the Penguins, so I have to believe the messages management has been sending behind the scenes are the ones they want out there.
Crosby's been crushed by the burden of being Sidney Crosby.
Malkin needs to become a better leader.
By all accounts, Rob Scuderi wasn't what Ray Shero was hoping for last season when he signed him to a 4 year, $13.5 million contract. It's arguable that the Scuderi contract was the one mistake that pushed Shero over the edge and out of a job. It wasn't realistic to expect the same player who left Pittsburgh for Los Angeles just four years prior, but even reasonable expectations...
