Re: A deeper look at a Dubas "rebuild on the fly"

Sorry, but has Sullivan and the bosses from Boston signed off on the plan to move forward with bringing in youth to move backwards for a few years?

You know, the people who run the team. From Boston. For a Pittsburgh NHL hockey team. How did Betman and the NHL Goveners sign off off on the sale?

Re: 2024-2025 Season Random Penguins Fodder

How are Russian scouts hired? Under contract, at what rate? How are they evalutated for job performance? For those who have a inside connection to all things Penguins, can you ask how the franchise handles off-shore intel and transactions? Mind boggling that a NHL team (Northern America) team needs ...

Re: Surprised Crosby has not extended yet

I don't understand the whole Crosby talk going on here. Never once has anyone, Pens management, reporters, friends, family, ever said Crosby would want to leave Pittsburgh. Contrary, Crosby himself has stated repeatedly that he has no intentions of ever donning another jersey and that his intention...

Re: Penguins hire Wes Clark as VP of Player Personel

Good for KD for addressing the need. Long overdue. KD seems to hold his plans close to his chest, unlike the last two GM's. Rutherford was too transparent, Patrik Allvin was just a name on a business card, and Hextal was a complete loser, along with Burke. Both have hatred for the team that employed...

Anyone else remember watching this?

Pro Beach Hockey. Founded in the late 90's, roller hockey, played in Huntington Beach and broadcast on ESPN and The Duece. The rink had ramps behind each net that could be skated on to gain speed and to shoot the ball quickly around the net. The league had a two-point line, cheerleaders, live music,...

NHL Network is broadcasting FOUR games July 9, all featuring Mario Lemieux. 7:00 AM start PST.

8 hours of the GOAT.

Not specific to the request, but I felt it is worth singling out from random Penguins news.

To make the Pens suck less???

Wait, sorry, you are correct. The suck comes along with them like a used puck bag.

Maybe the plan is to suck even more so Sullivan bails sooner than later.

Maybe Dubas sits down with Crosby and explains what his game plan is, and how one of the third greatest players to wear a Penguins jersey should re-up with his plan. Rip the bandage off.

Dare I say that this is the off-season of 'dip a toe in the shallow end of the pool to see how cold it is'? Time will tell, but to swing for the fences last season with EK, which didn't move the needle forward, and beginning a quiet start to this off-season, one does have to wonder who this guy is.

Wonder if KD will use both picks or make one pick and trade the other for a younger now player like Robertson or Kakko type? Probably just makes 2 draft picks , especially since we don’t have a 3rd.

The one riot that always stood out to me was Montreal in '93. Hockey's birthplace. I guess it was more about politics than hockey, and the time and place were set by all of the anger.

Jarry has a 12 team no trade list.
Does the NHLPA or the NHL publish these lists? Are they available for public viewing? I have always been curious.
