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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 letsgopens.com were: Q: Could you continue in Pittsburgh? A: No. My agent talked to the management, and I won¢â‚¬â... More.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I stumbled upon this video on youtube today which pretty much explains life the way we know it growing up in the City of Champions. Things are even translated in there for you non Pittsburghers that aren't familiar with the local tongue. ... More.
