Fitzgerald said “it wouldn't be a shock at all” if Pouliot or Maatta starts this season in the NHL. Dumoulin's chances of making the team might be even stronger. He was acquired in a trade that sent Jordan Staal to Carolina.

Maybe Maatta or Pouliot will get a 10-game look. No clue where any of the young guys fit, though.

Pens D is set as we thought:



(Even though we said we aren't that pumped, the Martin-Scuderi pairing gives us a boner)



No clue how a young guy cracks the roster.

Pens sign Kobasew

In his annual PTO contract signing, Shero choose Chuck Kobasew. Kobasew played on the AVs last season. Speaks volumes of the forward depth. ugh.

Max Talbot stuff

Saw this today…

In other news Max Talbot still missing from 2010-2013.
