Say It Isn't So - Day 1 of Free Agency 7-1-09

July, 2, 2009

There were some big names that moved on day one as well as some that stayed put. The Penguins didn't make very much noise, they lost defenseman Hal Gill to the Canadiens and picked up forward Michael Rupp from the Devils. The biggest move today came out of Chicago when they signed Marian Hossa to a... More.

About Last Night

July, 2, 2009

In about a 3 hour period last night from 8:00 to 11:00 there were some major dealings in the NHL. The dominoes started to fall once Marian Gaborik signed with the Rangers, which led into the Canadiens signing Brian Gionta to a 5-year $25 million contract, and ended with Martin Havlat going to Minne...

The Piece Moves On FA Round Up Day 2

July, 2, 2009

Day 2 of the free agency period is winding down and it has been a rather slow day, the only big news coming on the home front was the signing of defenseman Rob Scuderi by the Los Angeles Kings. The contract Scuderi signed with the Kings was $3.4 Million a year for 4 years, which in my opinion was w... More.

Pens Sign Fedotenko

July, 3, 2009

The Penguins signed winger Ruslan Fedotenko to a 1-year contract today. The contract is worth $1.8 million which is a paycut over what he made last year during his first year with the club. ... More.

Dere’s A Hot Spot Dere Right Dere

July, 9, 2009

Tyler Kennedy and Kris Letang did the weather on Tuesday morning on KDKA. It was rough around the edges, I wonder if anyone told them that this was live. ... More.

Jay Mckee to Pittsburgh?

July, 11, 2009

It is currently being reported that defenseman Jay Mckee is close to or has already signed a contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Since the St. Louis Blues bought out his contract he will still be receiving a paycheck from them so don't look for the cap strapped Penguins to be spending any ... More.

We Are Still Here

The posts may continue to stay some what spread out as I continue to upgrade the site and make it more user friendly, I will try and make daily posts to the site, or as new Penguins news becomes available over the next week o...

Penguins Prospect Camp Starts Next Week

July, 14, 2009

The Penguins will hold a prospect training camp next week, so if you run into some strange non-English speaking fellows walking around town don't be alarmed they are not here to kill you. If you are interested the camp runs from July 20-26 at Mellon Arena and the Southpointe Iceoplex. The Penguins ... More.

Pens Resign Braveheart and the Reverend

July, 15, 2009

The Penguins re-signed to AHLers today in Tim Wallace and Ben Lovejoy. Both players had time in the NHL last year with Wallace is the more NHL seasoned of the two prospects, but look to see more of Lovejoy this year who is in line to take over the 7th defenseman responsibilities. Lovejoy has... More.

Colby Armstrong Re-Signs with Atlanta

July, 16, 2009

Well it looks like the Colby to Pittsburgh rumours will go on for another year, as the Altanta Thrashers and restricted free agent Colby Armstrong came to terms on a deal. No word on what the terms of the deal are yet, but I don't expect it to be more than a 1-year contract so that Colby isn... More.

It Was Nice Knowing Ya

July, 17, 2009

Former Penguins forward Petr Sykora, I believe we can say that now after seeing this doozy of a piece in a Czech newspaper . The finer points of the article as seen on were: Q: Could you continue in Pittsburgh? A: No. My agent talked to the management, and I won¢â‚¬â... More.

What 2 Watch 4 October 2009

July, 20, 2009

Well since we have dropped the ball on posting this schedule, I figured I might as well post it and give my opinions on somewhat big games as I see them now. Fri. Oct. 2 - Home opener, besides this being the first game of the season and the last home opener in Mellon Arena, the Penguins will b... More.

Penguins Sign G Brent Johnson

July, 21, 2009

The Penguins signed former Washington Capital backup goaltender Brent Johnson to a 1-year contract today, the terms of the deal are yet to be announced. He played 21 games with the Caps in 2008-2009, finishing with a record of 12-6-2, and recorded a .908 SV% with a 2.81 GAA. There is still n... More.

In With The New - Michael Rupp

July, 23, 2009

Over the next couple of days we will begin to examine the arrivals and departures of the past month in Penguins free agency. First on our list is forward Michael Rupp previously of the New Jersey Devils. Rupp in my eyes atleast will be a 4th liner for the Pens, I say this because I don't see ... More.

In With The New - Jay McKee

July, 24, 2009

Defenseman Jay McKee at the price the Pens got him at I think it's a steal, especially with the role we assume he will be taking over. The role we speak of is that of one departed Rob Scuderi, McKee may have not put up the offensive numbers that Scuds put up last year 1 goal 7 assists for Mc... More.

In With The New - Brent Johnson

July, 28, 2009

After a long weekend filled with painting, Hofbrauhaus, Rowdy's BBQ (I highly reccomend "The Big Pig"), and your sister we are back at it with a look at the Penguins new backup goaltender Brent Johnson. Johnson is coming over from the Capitals and in my opinion should have had a legitimate sh... More.

In With The New - The Remaining FAs

July, 30, 2009

The Pens made a couple other not so big free agent signings since the first of July, they include Brian Strait, Nate Guenin, Chris Conner, and Chris Lee. Each being a quality signing, but if I remember correctly all are on 2-way contracts so we won't be seeing a ton of these guys unless someone get... More.
