Lookin at the biggest concerns for the Pittsburgh Penguins heading into camp

Lookin at the biggest concerns for the Pittsburgh Penguins heading into camp

Being a sports fan is worrying about the worst case scenarios. Let’s dive in! There’s always optimism and brightness heading into a season. Daniel Sprong is going to score 30 goals for sure! If not 30, then darn sure 20! Kris Letang will regain his form! Sidney Crosby will get more luck and a better on-ice scoring percentage! Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel will just easily keep rolling off good seasons! Derick Brassard will find comfort and productivity! All of this may well happen, or most of it anyways. But the picture of what is to be is never as bright or pure as before the season...

The Penguins have a training camp battle for roster and lineup spots

The Penguins have a training camp battle for roster and lineup spots

Too many players and not enough roster spots add up to a lot of possibilities for the Penguins one week out from training camp. As of now, on the precipice of training camp, the Pittsburgh Penguins look like a very deep and healthy team as they begin to prepare for the 2018-19 season. No matter how they shake out, up the middle at center, this team is loaded. Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Derick Brassard, Riley Sheahan, Matt Cullen and Derek Grant are all natural centers, and that’s six forwards alone in a group of usually 13. On the right wing, they’re just as loaded with Phil Kessel,...

Phil Kessel ranked 13th in best wingers

Phil Kessel ranked 13th in best wingers

Still #1 in our hearts though The latest list of rankings by the NHL Network turned to wingers Start your morning with a good ol' debate. #NHLTopPlayers pic.twitter.com/ZmG6Wlaipk— NHL Network (@NHLNetwork) August 20, 2018 I don’t have a lot of outrage over this list, looks like a pretty good ranking. On any given night anyone named above can take over a game and make a case to be just as good as anyone in the league. No Jake Guentzel, but that’s to be expected considering his point career-high is still 48 and the majority of that list has scored 60-70-80+ points over the years.
