Did the Penguins ruin their call-up situation again?

Did the Penguins ruin their call-up situation again?

The Penguins might have mismanaged their post-deadline roster for the second time in three years Don't blame anyone who has blocked it out, but others may remember at the end of the 2014-2015 season -- when the Pittsburgh Penguins needed to win games late to sneak into the playoffs -- they were playing with an unusual roster of 13 forwards and 5 defenseman.

Kris Letang isn't concussed, but is still injured

An update on Kris Letang's injury doesn't say what it is, but more importantly we know what it isn't as the Penguins ruled out a concussion. Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan gave a little bit of an update on the status of defenseman Kris Letang "There’s just so much speculation around Kris’ injury. What I will confirm is that it’s not a concussion. It’s not related to a stroke or anything of that nature. Kris has an upper-body injury. He’s rehabbing the injury at home as we speak.

Kris Letang’s ‘Complicated’ Injury Raising Concerns

In hockey — more specifically the NHL — injury reports are always vague and void of detailed information regarding a player’s ailment. It’s usually as simple as ‘upper-body injury’ or ‘lower-body injury’ unless some sort of surgery is required and that’s perfectly fine.

What does a healthy Penguins defense look like heading into the playoffs?

Currently, the Penguins are without Kris Letang, Bryan Rust, Olli Maatta, and Trevor Daley — not ideal by any means. Remember icing five defensemen in the midst of a playoff push back in 2015 because of injuries and cap...
