We’re nearing the end of our previews. We’ve done the front office, the coaches, the goalies, and the defense. Now it’s on to the forwards. The Pens have been more top-heavy than Dolly Parton in recent seasons, but that has all changed with new GM Jim Rutherford. The Pens have a solid 3.75 lines going into the season, even with an injury to […]
Here’s the progression of all of our season previews: 2006-2007 We said: The Penguins will begin the season with the youngest roster in their 40-year history. They are 65-1 odds to win the Stanley Cup. Sometime during this season, we may know for sure if the Penguins are leaving or staying in Pittsburgh. We have […]
We’ve previewed the front office and the coaching staff. Now we’re getting to the players. The first batch is goaltenders. This is a road we’ve all traveled many times.
MAF’s yellow pads and the tribute to Barrasso’s mask are nice touches. This might be the greatest uniform to come out in sports since the San Diego Chargers brought back those powder-blues.
There has probably been 500 Bylsma articles written on the Internet since Bylsma was let go. And honestly, this is probably the last time we even want to talk about it.

The parade came down Grant Street and turned right onto the Boulevard of the Allies. It was a right-hand turn that everyone waited for. Of […]
Didn’t even realize there was a game on. We were too busy making stunned gifs of Pirate fans. Three things to know about 1.
Preseason is slowly turning into “Where the hell is Evgeni Malkin?” If no one sees him on the ice by next weekend, we’ve got some problems. We recapped this game. Pens lost 4-1. Not a great time.
We were supposed to get our first look at Crosby this preseason, but he had some family issues to deal with. So we settled for Brian Gibbons vs. Letang/Ehrhoff.
This doesn’t look good: Bennett has been the best player in training camp this year. He’s battled wrist injuries the last two seasons. This sounds completely awful.
Preseason games are especially hard to watch. It feels even worse this preseason. But the Penguins are getting some good stuff from third liners and their young D. Some shit:
There was only a faint Internet stream available for this game. It was the Columbus feed, and they are horrible. Some notes on this one:
