2015 NHL All-Star Game Open Thread

Let's go Team Toews! Here we are my friends. Although it appears that more "stars" have been left out and dropped out of this game (due to injury) than we can remember in recent history, tonight is still a date that almost every hockey fan circles on their calendar; it's the All-Star Game. There will be no Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Sergei Bobrovsky, and a few other guys that we were all looking forward to seeing, but that doesn't mean that star power will be found wanting. There are, of course, a few guys that are here as the representatives of their NHL clubs (looking at you Justin...

The NHL's problem: All-Star Game is a farce

Sidney Crosby has pulled out of the NHL All Star game. And why wouldn't he? Sidney Crosby is not going to Columbus to participate in the NHL All-Star game, we learned yesterday. And really, why would he even go? After playing 43 games and getting hacked, slashed and checked along the way, his body would be much better for a week off than going to an exhibition. As Montreal media member Louis Jean reported, Crosby had an MRI earlier in the week, played the games but along with the docs decided rest was better than All-Star weekend. The Penguins announced Crosby will miss Tuesday's game vs....

Five Thoughts for Friday

Karlsson's snub is bigger than you think, Robin Lehner's struggles, and more! The All-Star break may not mark the actual halfway point of the season, but the almost week off between games gives the feel of dividing the campaign into two separate, if unequal parts. For most players, it's an opportunity to spend some time with their families and friends away from the rink, and prepare themselves for the back-end of the year. For the few that are chosen, however, there's a legitimate question as to how lucky they really feel. For example, Sidney Crosby has been deemed unfit to play this...

Wilderness Walk: How deep does the rabbit hole go?

The downward spiral continues as the Penguins beat the Wild handily by a score of 7-2.  The Wild once again came out with a jump, but a simple defensive breakdown led to the Wild being down a goal in the first period.  In a twist, the Wild offered sustained pressure and generated offense throughout the first two periods until the wheels really fell off following a failed power play to open the third.  In a game that neither Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin scored a goal (both had assists), the Wild allowed goals on bad rebounds, from the blue line, and just five seconds into a Charlie...

Rutherford hints no major trades for a while

The Pens GM gives some more details about what his strategy will be going forward As always, Elliotte Friedman’s 30 Thoughts is a great way to keep your finger on the pulse of the league. And he got some quotes from Jim Rutherford! The Pens GM has been remarkably transparent and honest in his dealings with the media (like the Marc-Andre Fleury extension, as well as what he would and wouldn’t do in trades so far) so there actually may be some value here. 11. Penguins GM Jim Rutherford, asked what he’s learned seeing Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin up close: "Crosby is all about...
