Could familiar trading partners in Ducks and Penguins find another deal?

Could familiar trading partners in Ducks and Penguins find another deal?

Photo by Harry How/ Rickard Rakell could be one of many Ducks players out there that could be on the move The Penguins and Anaheim Ducks have had a wonderful working relationship and have made several trades in recent years. Most recently the Ducks picked up Erik Gudbranson and his $4.0 million cap hit from Pittsburgh for a seventh round pick in October of 2019. The teams made a fairly minor move to swap veteran forwards Derek Grant and Joseph Blandisi earlier in 2019 and in late 2018 the teams made a “change of scenery” deal that sent Daniel Sprong west for Marcus...

WBS Report: The WBS Penguins finish a busy week with three straight victories

Forward Radim Zohorna, on his way to his first two goals of the season. | @WBSPenguins Here’s a quick recap of the last four games for the WBS Penguins, who are starting to see some of their new arrivals settle in and take charge while the roster churns. Despite this being a shorter, more irregular season for the WBS Penguins, the fact remains that they are a farm team. Their best performers can (and quite often are) promoted to Pittsburgh or the Pittsburgh taxi squad seemingly at whim. Such roster turnover started to hit WBS at the very end of their week off leading...

The Penguins special teams can not do anything right at the moment

Photo by Mike Stobe/NHLI via The power play and penalty kill are both among the worst in the NHL. If the Pittsburgh Penguins miss the playoffs during the 2020-21 season you will be able to point the finger in a lot of different directions. But the first place you go might be the two special teams units that are starting to become a major liability. A season-crushing liability. This team has its flaws and issues to be sure. Evgeni Malkin is still, well, who the hell knows what is going on there. They are not a particularly great 5-on-5 team. The goaltending is still a...

Will the Pens replace Jason Zucker from within? Or with a trade?

Photo by Jeanine Leech/Icon Sportswire via Looking at Pittsburgh’s options moving forward without one of their top wingers Jason Zucker wasn’t having as strong as a season as was expected and hoped for when he went down injured on Tuesday night with just four goals and three assists in 17 games and just a 42.3% expected goals share. Still, the Penguins took a big hit when one of their star wingers got injured, and now have a big hole in their lineup which will apparently remain for quite a while. Coach Sullivan continued: "We would rather just report the injuries...
