Coach Johnston: Kessel to start with Crosby

The Penguins coach announces his idea of where Phil Kessel will play. One of the biggest questions since the Pittsburgh Penguins acquired Phil Kessel would be where would he play with, on the right side of Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin? But only one person's opinion truly mattered, that of course being coach Mike Johnston, and he has weighed in. Coach Johnston says Phil Kessel will most likely start with Sidney Crosby on the right side, but things could change. — Pittsburgh Penguins (@penguins) August 25, 2015 With that being the case, Patric Hornqvist ought to be on the right wing...

Is Tyler Seguin the Heir to Sidney Crosby's Title As the Best Hockey Player in the World?

There are people who think so. Discuss. Most of us probably assumed that 2015 was the Summer of Connor McDavid. The most hotly hyped hockey talent in 10 years went No. 1 in the NHL Draft, as everyone predicted, and triggered a rapturous moment of selection for the lucky lottery winners at the Edmonton Oilers, as previously ordained. But what if The Next One — the heir to Sidney Crosby, who was the heir to Wayne Gretzky — is already a fixture in the league? What if he's maturing into the role rather than springing full-grown from the hockey gods' heads? Chris Peters of CBS Sports has...

Phil Friday: Sid's birthday edition

The summer of Phil Friday at Pensburgh rolls on! Happy Friday. Happy birthday Sidney Crosby. It's time for Phil Friday with our main man Phil Kessel. In the words of Michael Bolton, "boys, let's get to it". Crosby on Kessel Michelle from Pens Inside Scoop was at Sid's hockey school in Nova Scotia this week. She had a great interview with him (check it out in full if you haven't already) and of course they touched on Phil-mainia. From Penguins.com: We have to ask you about Phil Kessel.

Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon are this summer's top buddy duo

Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon, both #1 overall picks out of tiny Cole Harbour Nova Scotia have teamed up this summer with the mission to apparently put a smile on every single person's face in Canada. Two good guys doing good things. Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon have a lot in common. They're from the same little town of Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia and they both are former NHL #1 overall draft picks. That's a pretty cool and unique bond. Despite Crosby being 8 years (!!) older than MacKinnon, the two have formed a friendship recently as well. They're regular summer workout partners...
