Pens Points: It’s Arbitration Day

Brian Dumoulin and the Penguins get their arbitration hearing today Today’s arbitration day for Brian Dumoulin and the Penguins: Marc-Andre Fleury got his day with the Stanley Cup on Saturday in Montreal (including a trip to the Ronald McDonald House), and enjoyed yet another “last” moment as a member of the Pens.

2016-17 Pensburgh Season Review: Kris Letang

2016-17 Pensburgh Season Review: Kris Letang

It ended up being a lost season individually for Letang, but against all odds it ended with nothing but smiles 2016-17 Stats and career progression Preseason Expectations: Kris Letang ended the 2015-16 season professionally at the very pinnacle of the sport. He played 71 games in the regular season- setting personal highs in goals, assists and points. Then he ratcheted his game up even further to play 26:56 per game in the playoffs (almost 7 minutes more than any other defensive teammate) becoming one of the biggest driving factors in helping the franchise win a 4th...

If it’s summer, it’s time for Kris Letang workout stories. Here’s a link to an interview with the French outlet TVA Sports. And, for those of the non-Francophiles, here’s the google translate which gets like 80% I’m sure of the intended story across (with some edits of obvious words done here): A month after the conquest of the Stanley Cup by the Pittsburgh Penguins, Kristopĥer Letang is not...

Altitude Check: Winnipeg Jets news and notes for Tuesday, July 11, 2017

Your morning helping of NHL news and notes. The dog days of summer are officially upon us and hopefully things keep happening. Winnipeg Jets News: Brandon Tanev is a Jet for one more season after signing a new contract for $700 000. This contract has very little impact on the Jets as it can be buried in the AHL for nothing but True North Sports and Entertainment’s money. The one-way nature of the contract may have made it so Tanev would take a pay cut. (Arctic Ice Hockey) NHL News: Pittsburgh Penguins defenceman Kristopher Letang expects to be back by the start of training camp....

Penguins Blue Line: Hunwick vs. Pouliot

Free agency left the depth of the Pittsburgh Penguins’ blue line pretty bare last week, as Trevor Daley, Ron Hainsey and Marc Streit all left in free agency.

Schultz Deal Worth Every Penny for Penguins

Justin Schultz signed on for three more years with the Pittsburgh Penguins this Saturday. His contract is no Carey Price-style bank-breaker, but it’s not chump change either. The deal’s $5.5 million average annual value makes Schultz the fifth-highest-paid player on the team, cheaper only than Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby, Phil Kessel and Kris Letang. That’s a $4 million […]
