And the Hurricanes got a second round pick for him. They also got a good AHL player who is having a bad year, so perhaps he’ll help the farm team too. This is good for the Penguins who have major injury troubles on defence. They did...

What the Penguins traded for Ron Hainsey: Expected value of a late 2nd round pick

Some think the Pittsburgh Penguins gave up too much when they sent a 2nd round pick to Carolina for defenseman Ron Hainsey. A statistical look of what history says the Pens actually gave up Got rolling on this in the comments of the other post with some of the fan backlash, or at least hesitancy on endorsing the Penguins trade yesterday being as they gave up a 2nd round pick in 2017 to the Carolina Hurricanes for defenseman Ron Hainsey. Now, understandably, there's nothing sexy about adding a soon-to-be 36-year old defensive defenseman who's best served on the third pair. That's not a guy...

Mark Madden: Ron Hainsey is an upgrade over the Penguins' three minor-league defensemen

It’s incredible that a 35-year-old who has never played a Stanley Cup playoff game and is minus-81 on his career is a clear upgrade over Cameron Gaunce, Steve Oleksy and Chad Ruhwedel. But Ron Hainsey is.

Scouting Report on Ron Hainsey

A look at what to expect from the newest Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Now that the shock of the initial trade is wearing down for the Pittsburgh Penguins to acquire Ron Hainsey for a 2nd round pick (and the Hurricanes retaining half of his salary) the obvious question becomes-  what can Pittsburgh expect from Hainsey? Initially, and obviously, Hainsey is a badly needed band-aid. Last week Pittsburgh lost Olli Maatta for six weeks with a broken hand. This week, Trevor Daley hurt his knee, had surgery, and is also expected out six weeks. Justin Schultz in on the mend from a concussion and...
