Predicting how long the Penguins’ Stanley Cup window will stay open

Pool Photo-USA TODAY Sports The Crosby/Malkin era has allowed for the Penguins to stay relatively big Cup contenders for the last 12 years or so. This past week, Craig Custance of The Athletic published a really interesting piece depicting how long the Stanley Cup window stays open for the NHL’s top contending teams. It took into accord statistics like points earned after the regular season concludes, plus how well each team did in categories such as penalty kill, power play success, expected goals for percentage, strength of schedule, and how far they advanced throughout the playoffs...

2019-20 Pittsburgh Penguins goals over/under projections

Photo by Jeanine Leech/Icon Sportswire via Who will meet goals and who will fall short It’s the dog days of summer, hockey is pretty quiet.

So let’s make something of it with some fun. Commenter skyff came up with a very interesting premise (and some very good totals, I must say) so let’s take a gander.

What to expect from Patric Hornqvist this season

What to expect from Patric Hornqvist this season

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports His 2018-19 season was a tale of two very different seasons. There are a lot of players that are going to have a say in whether or not the Penguins bounce back from an inconsistent 2018-19 season. At the top of that list (maybe even a distant second to Evgeni Malkin) is going to be winger Patric Hornqvist. Because he has been such an important cog in the machine for so many years now, and is still viewed “heart and soul” player that offers refreshingly honest assessments of both his play and the team’s play, he managed to escape a lot of the same...

Are the Penguins a middle of the pack type of team in the NHL now?

Are the Penguins a middle of the pack type of team in the NHL now?

Photo by Jeanine Leech/Icon Sportswire via Some early power rankings seem to think so One of the Penguins’ self-designated missions this season was becoming different. They identified a few key aspects to chase (getting younger, getting faster, becoming a better two-way team). But did these changes — almost all of which they voluntarily chose to do with trades and free agent signings (since they didn’t lose anything of significance to free agency) — did it actually make the Pens better? Or are they falling behind? That seems to be the million dollar question to ponder throughout...

2019 Pensburgh Top 25 Under 25: The Graduates and Departed

Photo by Mark Goldman/Icon Sportswire via An insane amount of turnover for the Penguins’ organization in the last year The 2018-19 Pittsburgh Penguins season was one of incredible turnover, with seven players from the opening night lineup traded during the season, and another in Tanner Pearson traded for and back out as well. The young players who make up the organization had just as much turnover too. In fact, from our 2018 Pensburgh Top 25 Under 25 list (catch up with it here) we have an astounding 10 players that will not be around for the 2019 list. Some of this involves aging...

The Pens need to make another mid-summer magical change

Photo by Claus Andersen/ Pittsburgh only needs to look back four years to find a wonderful late-summer trade and signing to help themselves By now in the middle of July, most off-season business is concluded around the NHL as the league looks to ride out a hot summer and wait for fall to mercifully bring cooler temps and the return of hockey. Teams may have a stray restricted free agent or two to tighten up, but with the draft complete and the free agent frenzy all but settled, the majority of tasks to accomplish have been completed. But that doesn’t mean that the action is completed....
