What kind of player is Penguins trade target Mike Matheson?

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports For only being a little under 24-hours-old, the Mike Matheson — Patric Hornqvist trade saga has already been filled with approximately seven billion twists and turns. From rumors of Jim Rutherford not notifying Hornqvist about waving his no-trade clause, to issues regarding insurance in the case of a Hornqvist injury while playing for the Panthers, this potential trade has already had more storylines injected into it than an afternoon soap opera. Now, there are even murmurs about the trade being “stuck” or called off altogether. But in the event...

A look at all the twists and turns of a trade that almost happened but hasn’t....Yet. Where Patric Hornqvist to Florida for Mike Matheson stands It was a quiet day up until 11:17 this morning, when former Pensburgh podcast guest Kevin Weekes broke some news via twitter that shook up the hockey world. “As per what I’m told - the @penguins are trading F Patric Hornqvist to @FlaPanthers in exchange for D Mike Matheson,” was the tweet. Before long, the instant reactions were ticking in about the deal itself. After all, almost always when a report that strong from a credible source hits...

Were our three Penguins targets for regression able to avoid it?

Photo by Jeanine Leech/Icon Sportswire via Jake Guentzel was able to sustain in 2019-20, but Matt Murray? Er, not so much A good point in the week to step back and talk about regression. One aspect of hockey that is very interesting is the variability involved. Real life isn’t a video game where a player is an 85 overall and consistent every second of every shift. For most players there are huge swings of strong performances ebbing and then invariably evening out and crashing back to true talent levels. This focus attempts to point out at least what to watch for in terms of some...

Trading Bryan Rust seems like a bad idea

Trading Bryan Rust seems like a bad idea

Handout Photo-USA TODAY Sports General managers have inquired about Bryan Rust, but Rutherford says he isn’t available. Let’s hope it stays that way. Yesterday, we learned the Penguins were looking into signing defenseman Chris Tanev as a free agent. Apart of that very same report from Josh Yohe and Rob Rossi over at The Athletic, they discussed the possibility the Penguins could deal away leading goal scorer Bryan Rust this offseason. Per Yohe and Rossi: Several NHL general managers have inquired about Rust with Penguins GM Jim Rutherford, who is not actively shopping Rust and...

Penguins focusing on adding Chris Tanev?

Photo by Jeff Vinnick/NHLI via Could a second Tanev brother in as many years be an addition for the Penguins in free agency? The Penguins are about to lose one right handed defenseman in free agency in a little more than two weeks when Justin Schultz hits the open market. Accordingly, they will need a replacement. Chad Ruhwedel is nice as a depth player, but probably not a championship-caliber top six option. Pittsburgh has also cleared some salary space and figures to be active in free agency. While their third line forward group still has more questions than answers, the same could be...

With Jared McCann re-signed, where will he play?

Photo by Joe Sargent/NHLI via Center, Left Wing, Goalie?! The Penguins’ off-season roster construction continues. When the team was shockingly eliminated by the Montreal Canadiens last month, all eyes turned to 2021 and what that roster would look like. GM Jim Rutherford, as he so often does, openly promised to bring change to his squad to maximize the last remaining years of the Crosby/Malkin championship window. First, GMJR wanted to bolster his top-6 forward group, so he went out and re-acquired his 2014 first-round draft pick, Kasperi Kapanen from the Toronto Maple Leafs. A...
