What is a reasonable expectation for Jeff Carter?

What is a reasonable expectation for Jeff Carter?

Photo by Andrew D. Bernstein/NHLI via There is always a high bar set for trade deadline acquisitions, and sometimes it is difficult to reach. Jeff Carter will be making his debut for the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night against, oddly enough, the Philadelphia Flyers. It will be our first chance to see how this new addition is going to look in the lineup. I, for one, am optimistic about it. Carter may not be an elite player anymore, but for the role the Penguins are going to be asking him to perform — especially when everybody is back in the lineup — he...

Which Penguins should be on the radar for awards?

The Penguins season is now 75% complete and has left than one month in the regular season. As such and with a few days off here, it’s probably not too early to take stock in the NHL’s landscape for the awards. No Pittsburgh player has won a major league-wide award since 2017, when Sidney Crosby won the Conn Smythe for playoff MVP and Rocket Richard trophy for scoring the most goals. Awards won’t come from the scoring races —...

Ron Hextall’s first trade deadline with the Penguins looks like a success

Photo by Harry How/ They added an upgrade without doing anything to disrupt the way the team is playing. The Pittsburgh Penguins made one major addition before Monday’s NHL trade deadline when they sent two conditional draft picks to the Los Angeles Kings for veteran forward Jeff Carter. Where exactly does Carter fit and what role is he going to play? No idea! But it is an intriguing move mostly because it was so unexpected. In the weeks of trade rumors leading up to the deadline I do not recall seeing a single reference to Carter and the Penguins, so it definitely...

Grading the trade: thoughts on Jeff Carter joining the Penguins

How do we feel about Jeff Carter becoming a Pittsburgh Penguin? The late night news has reached daybreak, with the Penguins picking up forward Jeff Carter from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for two draft picks. It’s a third round pick in 2022 and a fourth round pick in 2023, with an added condition that if the Pens make the Stanley Cup Final and Carter plays in 50%+ of the playoff games, that third round pick graduates up to a second rounder. How do we feel about this move? A bit mixed, and as always, it depends on factors outside of public knowledge right now. The...
