Pittsburgh Penguins Off-Season Should be Quiet

Pittsburgh Penguins Off-Season Should be Quiet

The Pittsburgh Penguins bid to win three Stanley Cups in a row ended in the second round as the Washington Capitals beat them in six games. It was the first time the Capitals had reached the third round in 20 years. This was also the Penguins first series loss in three years when they lost to the New York Rangers in five games in 2015. There has been some speculation about whether the Penguins could move a core player this off-season. Defenceman Kris Letang didn't look like himself this season after coming off major neck surgery. Let's take a look at why this Penguins off-season should be...

Kris Letang trade rumor update: still a bad idea for the Pens!

Kris Letang trade rumor update: still a bad idea for the Pens!

Chatter is hitting the rounds about Kris Letang. Why it shouldn’t be serious. Again. Almost six months ago, while off to a slow start, we had to write an article titled, “The Penguins won’t get better by trading Kris Letang” to point out how it would be a short-sighted decision that would negatively impact that team. So can I just hit the contrl c+ contrl v and call it a day? (sigh) OK, so the latest: from Josh Yohe at The Athletic. “Let me put it this way,” Rutherford said of Letang, who has a limited no-trade clause in his contract, which has four years remaining at $7.25...

On This Day: End Of An Era

On This Day: End Of An Era

May 16 is a day in Penguins history that saw the Ray Shero regime come to a crumbling and humiliating end. With the Penguins now in full offseason mode, we’ll be starting a fun “On This Day” series that chronicles some of the best (or worst) moments in Penguins history on any given day. *** Ray Shero’s tenure as Penguins general manager was filled with positives, negatives, and everything in between. Reaching two Stanley Cup Finals with a youthful squad led by Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang, Marc-Andre Fleury and Sidney Crosby and winning one of those two Cups against a very...

PensBrew and hot takes too: Fishin around on social media

Decoding the latest trend between Jake Guentzel and Kris Letang on instagram (With Penguins news dying down for the summer, the usual morning Pens Points post that we all know and love is on its summer hiatus now. Great work to Garrett and Robbie who never missed so much as a day or had any issues reliably bringing you news for the morning, so thanks guys!..But fret not, every morning we’ll have something fun for you. ..And player report cards will probably start as soon as next week, so we will have you covered with plenty of content and coverage in the weeks to follow.) — A...

Broad Street Hockey predicts the third round

We’re sorta the experts at this point? I’ve spent the last fifteen minutes trying to work out a joke that relates this post being a day late due to Kris Letang forgetting how to defense in overtime against the Capitals, so instead of forcing the joke, let’s just take a moment to laugh at that. And folks, the Penguins will not threepeat and this is good for the universe. Well, we’re back for another round of playoff predictions, and we have another person joining us this round: our newest writer here at BSH, John. Anywho, let’s take a look at the results from the second round as...

Joe Starkey: Phil Kessel and Kris Letang are must-keeps for the Penguins, issues and all

Locker-cleanout day reminded me of the Washington Capitals series in at least one respect: Phil Kessel disappeared.

Kris Letang can't shake that Game 5 'mistake'

Ask any Penguins fan to evaluate Kris Letang’s postseason performance, and the answer likely starts with the defensive breakdowns in the Penguins’ 4-3 Game 5 loss to the Capitals.

Phil Kessel is the last player the Penguins should consider trading

Phil Kessel is the last player the Penguins should consider trading

It’s offseason so it’s rumor and hypothetical time. But one move the Penguins absolutely should not do (for a hockey and management perspective) is consider trading Phil Kessel. It’s the Penguins offseason, which means a variety of media members floating numerous theories, suggestions, and best of all, predictions that they’ll be trading star players. Usually it’s Evgeni Malkin or Kris Letang. Now it’s starting to be Phil Kessel. Hell, some idiot columnist will have to take to his grave the fact he said “don’t be surprised if the Pens trade Phil Kessel” in summer 2017. If...

Stanley Cup playoffs: Kris Letang, Penguins look to move past Game 5 mistakes

Before the Penguins took the ice at PPG Paints Arena for Monday’s morning skate, coach Mike Sullivan had a meeting with his No. 1 defenseman, Kris Letang.

The Penguins and Capitals almost played a full game without someone delivering a controversial hit. Almost.

It’s time the Penguins stop taking the high road — tell it like it is

The Penguins have been subject to multiple violent headshots this playoff season already and enough is enough. Through nine games of the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs, it’s exhausting to watch the Penguins night-in and night-out be subject to violent headshots and then take the high road and provide no comment on the situation, hoping that the NHL will do the right thing. Claude Giroux’s “Collision” Early in the opening round series with the Philadelphia Flyers, Kris Letang was taken out in a strange collision with Claude Giroux. Scary moment in Flyers vs. Penguins as Giroux and...
