One interesting item that stand sout is that all four of the defensemen on the fringes of the regular season roster — Ty Smith, Pierre-Olivier Joseph, Chad Ruhwedel and Mark Friedman — find themselves in the lineup tomorrow...

Photo by Joe Sargent/NHLI via Who are the best bench bosses within the Penguins’ division? Last year at this time we took a stab at ranking the coaches within the Penguins’ division, and now it’s time to do it again as another season approaches. 8. Lindy Ruff - New Jersey Devils - As quickly as NHL teams often tend to fire their coaches, it’s surprising that Ruff was taken back for a third season in New Jersey. The Devils have finished in seventh place in the division two years in a row under Ruff and been total non-factors. They’ve added more talented...

Using the NHL’s estimated future salary cap to predict the Penguins’ future

Using the NHL’s estimated future salary cap to predict the Penguins’ future

Photo by Jeanine Leech/Icon Sportswire via How could the Penguins look in the future? The news was good for NHL’s business last year in terms of making money. Deputy commissioner Bill Daly told The Athletic: “I would say we exceeded our expectations this year on revenue,” Daly said. “And even our forecast, which is done fairly late in the season, we exceeded pretty dramatically. So a lot of the escrow balance actually got paid back this year, certainly more of it than we had originally projected.” And Sportsnet reported more as far as what that could mean...

Penguins’ power play lacking identity, practice in early going

Photo by Jeanine Leech/Icon Sportswire via There may be a reason why the Pittsburgh power play looked so bad in going 0-for-9 last night against Detroit The Pittsburgh Penguins had all five of their top power play players in place last night, but from how it looked on the ice, you probably couldn’t guess it. The Pens failed to score a goal in nine power play chances against a depleted Detroit Red Wings team. That amounted to a total of 16:47 worth of time, nearly a full period. Worse than that, they not only failed to score, the Pens failed to threaten very often....
