  1. [Hidden Content] Blackhawks acquire D Maatta from Penguins The Pittsburgh Penguins have traded defenceman Olli Maatta to the Chicago Blackhawks for forward Dominik Kahun and a 2019 fifth-round pick, according to TSN hockey Insider Darren Dreger. The 24-year-old Maatta scored one goal and added 13 assists in 60 games last season. He has spent his entire six-year NHL career with Pittsburgh, winning two Stanley Cups in 2016 and 2017. Kahun, 23, is coming off his rookie campaign in which he scored 13 goals and added 24 assists in 82 games. "Dominik had a great rookie season with the Blackhawks," Penguins GM Jim Rutherford said in a statement. "He is a speedy, versatile player capable of playing all three forward positions. He also saw time on Chicago's power-play and penalty killing units. We are very excited for him to join our team." Ollie Maatta Hockeydb Dominik Kahun Hockeydb
  2. All discussions regarding the Pens vs Isles playoff series goes here.
  3. There are some rumors floating around out there that Kessel is on Sullivan and Rutherford's trading block. According to the Athletic Kessel and Sullivan have seen better times. Kessel wasn't happy with being moved off Malkin's 2nd line in the playoffs and Sullivan isn't happy about Kessel's said "pouty" attitude amongst other things. With Kessel only putting up 1 goal in the postseason and Sullivan having a strong voice on his roster I wouldn't be surprised to see Kessel moved this off-season for some younger talent and a high draft pick. Arizona maybe? Kessel does have a M-NTC as he can select up the 8 teams on his roster might he select playing for Tocchet again?
  4. WHO THE PENS SHOULD PROTECT FOR THE EXPANSION DRAFT First of all, you can either protect 7 skaters and 1 goalie or 5 offense and 3 defense, 1 goalie. I think the Pens should protect 5 offense, 3 defense, 1 goalie. Offense Sidney Crosby Evgeni Malkin Conor Sheary Phil Kessel Carl Hagelin Defense Kris Letang Olli Maatta Trevor Daley Goalie Matt Murray Murray and Fleury will probably split time next season. Whoever does better in the split time the Penguins should protect. Fleury has a No-Movement clause, which means the Pens will be forced to protect him if he does not waive his No-Movement Clause. I think Fleury will, because he will want to start, and that will not happen if both Murray and Fleury are both on the Penguins.
  5. Check out this Pens/Rangers playoffs DownFall Meme. There's even some slapshot references thrown in...
  6. Laugh at me all you want, but the Thornton incident indeed deserve a 9-1-1 call. That's not hockey, that's street bullying. The play is over, he get in the back of Orpik, make him fall by surprise than punch him to the head, without any reason of notice. That's not a hockey accident, that's against the law, period. Laugh, but if nothing is done, Boston players are just gonna keep destroying theirs opponents again and again with only a tiny ridiculous suspension by the NHL as their only consequence. Go wild.

  7. There is a Creed song from the movie Scream 3 that has the title: Is This The End? It closes with: So, is this the end for us my friend? Sitting here today that's the thought going through my head with regard to Dan Bylsma's coaching days with the Pittsburgh Penguins. I am one of those people that thinks the Penguins can come back from the 0-3 deficit in this series and win it. Now, I'm not crazy (my mom had me checked) - I said THINKS and CAN...not KNOWS and WILL. The trouble is...that kind of comeback - although possible - is VERY difficult and, as history shows us, not very common. So if we gaze into our crystal ball for a minute and image that we wake tomorrow morning to find the Penguins have put up another valiant effort (like game 3...finally) but still lost to the Bruins in 4 games, what will that mean for head coach Dan Bylsma? Even if we imagine a scenario where the Penguins win a couple of games and lose the series in 6...what will it mean for Dan? I'm of the opinion that nothing short of the Penguins forcing game 7 in this series... and winning (okay, maybe losing in heartbreaking triple OT fashion)...will save Dan's job. Of course, I'm just a fan...I don't officially get paid to think about this stuff or have any say in what actually goes down. But there's a pretty strong argument that if the Penguins don't make a historic (or almost) comeback against the Bruins, the coach must go. Assuming a series loss to the Bruins...the facts are pretty clear. The Penguins will have been eliminated from the playoffs - for the 4th year in a row - by a team they were expected to beat. The Penguins will have displayed - for a 4th year in a row - an inability to grasp the concepts of patience and composure when it's needed most. The Penguins will have shown - for a 4th year in a row - the insane ability to look like the best team in hockey one day and the world's biggest turnover machine the next. Of course, it's not ALL Dan's fault. You have to believe that even with his north/south approach to the game he has told his players to make sure they do smart things, not dumb things. The players have done a number of dumb things over the past 4 playoff seasons. But when you look at the 'embarrassment of riches' roster that GM Ray Shero has put together for this Stanley Cup Playoffs... the skill, talent, size and grit...you have to ask the question: Could any team be better prepared for a cup run from a player personnel standpoint? (ok...you don't really need to ask that because the answer is NO) Look, I like Dan. He's a good guy and, in a lot of ways, a good coach. But something is not right here and it's either in the way the players are coached or the way they respond to what they are being told to do. The biggest problem that I (and others who observe the team regularly) see is that there appears to be a certain stubbornness/resistance to alterations in the game plan. Again, whether it's the coaches plan or the players execution, the problem is that there have been way too many times to mention when it appears this team is moving head on for a collision with a semi and does not alter it's course. Pittsburgh Tribune Review hockey columnist Dejan Kovacevic had some really good points in his article today http://triblive.com/sports/dejankovacevic/dejancolumns/4144756-74/bylsma-coach-really?fb_action_ids=10201163115617636&fb_action_types=og.recommends&fb_source=aggregation&fb_aggregation_id=288381481237582#axzz2VXVRY5a9 The best part for me was when he mentioned the Peguins only getting THREE shots off rebounds through the entire series to date. THREE. Dejan asserts: "And the glaring reason is that, once in the Boston zone, rather than simply gunning and going to the net — picture an armada of Tyler Kennedy clones — they've insanely tried to Mario their way through four boxed-in Bruins, including Zdeno Chara and his 75-foot stick. That's on the coach." I couldn't agree more or have said it any better than that. And it's not just this series against the Bruins where this has happened, So, Is This The End For Us My Friend? I'm sorry to say, but unless the Penguins manage to pull off a miracle comeback in this series, I believe the answer as it relates to Dan Bylsma's head coaching days in Pittsburgh is yes.
  8. The rest of the hockey world is laughing at you, the Pittsburgh Penguins. They say that the ALL STAR team assembled in Pittsburgh, stock full of Hall of Fame like talent is an elite bunch of brats and when crunch time comes, they fold like an old picnic table. After watching the first two games of the series against the Bruins, where it seems like the Penguins are more intent on out hitting the Bruins than they are on out playing them, I have to agree with the assessment. So far...this is embarrassing. The question is...Penguins...what are you going to do about it? It's not a stretch to say that what happens next to this group of players is potentially CAREER DEFINING. Manage to scratch and claw your way back into this series and people will HAVE to respect you. Play two more games like the first two and it will be at least another whole year before you'll have the chance to redeem yourself...and the weight of this performance will be a heavy one to carry...perhaps too heavy for certain individuals. Now is the time when the true character of the player is shown. Back in 1991 the Penguins faced a similar situation against the Bruins and Kevin Stevens (and a few others) stood up and said enough. They turned an 0-2 series deficit into a 4-2 series win. Say what you will about Stevens troubles off the ice...the guy that played the game was all about the character necessary to succeed on the ice. These Penguins face an even more daunting task because these Bruins are better than those 1991 Bruins. These Bruins (essentially) have won a Cup. But isn't that what real character is all about? Facing the toughest situation and finding a way to deal with it? The challenge is there for every coach and player within the organization. The Bruins are beating you and making it look bad. Your ideas about how to beat them are not working. It's time for radical changes in the approach. It's time for serious ego checks at the door. It's time to decide how important winning is and make sure you put your players and teammates in the best position to do that come Wednesday night. You want the laughing to stop? Make it stop. It's not up to anyone else but you.
  9. Suffered in the Penguins 13 straight win. Haven't heard how long he will be out.
  10. Due to a hit from JVR, Malkin will not be playing in tonights game against the Islanders. Suter will again play second line duties between Neal and Bennett. The Islanders who are just 2pts out of a playoff spot generally play the Penguins tough. Should be a good game.
  11. The Hockey News’s annual Yearbook is on newstands now and the magazine is predicting that the Canadiens will finish in 13th place in the Eastern Conference and miss the playoffs again. THN predicts that Pittsburgh will finish first in the Eastern Conference, followed by Boston, Washington, the New York Rangers, Philadelphia, Tampa Bay, Buffalo and Ottawa as the eight playoff teams. In the Western Conference it’s St. Louis, followed by Vancouver, Los Angeles, Chicago, Minnesota, San Jose, Detroit and Nashville. In the Stanley Cup final, THN predicts Vancouver will beat Pittsburgh THN also has its annual list of the Top 50 Players in the NHL in its Yearbook, and Max Pacioretty was the only Canadien to make it, coming in at No. 44. Pacioretty is coming off a season in which he led the Canadiens in scoring with 33-32-65 totals and won the Masterton Trophy for perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. “He responded to a devastating injury by being more robust and scoring 33 goals,” THN writes. Pittsburgh’s Evgeni Malkin was No. 1 on the THN list. Others making the top 10, in order, were: Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos, Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby, Philadelphia’s Claude Giroux, Los Angeles’s Jonathan Quick and Drew Doughty, Minnesota’s Zach Parise, L.A.’s Anze Kopitar, Boston’s Zdeno Chara and the Rangers’ Henrik Lundqvist. [Hidden Content]- Shocking that Subban isn't in the top 50.

  13. [Hidden Content] "Neal - who also scored two power-play goals - said the it was accidental and he "didn't mean to hit" Couturier" So let's all just lay off the guy a little. He accidently threw his body towards an unsuspecting player, i mean it is totally an understandable situation. Hell, I was walking by my boss today I did the same exact thing!
