Potential Landing Spots for Phil Kessel

The Pittsburgh Penguins had a down season by their standards, bowing out of the playoffs early after a four-game sweep at the hands of the New York Islanders. While some considered this a monumental upset, this season’s iteration of the Penguins was not quite the same force that won back-to-back Stanley Cups in 2016 and 2017. In TSN’s list of possible Trade Bait released on May 17, Phil Kessel was listed as the top offseason trade target in the league. On the surface, some may question the l...

Subban Trade Bait: Who Will Bite?

Since the Nashville Predators’ season ended, P.K. Subban’s name has been circulated in trade rumors. This isn’t the first time the defenseman’s future in Nashville has been called into question. Last offseason he was mentioned in rumors, as well, although general manager Ray Shero quickly shut those down. This time, however, it feels different. Shero hasn’t silenced the speculation, and after a quick exit from the postseason, it’s not difficult to entertain a potential Subban trade. Reasons ...

Trade Bait

from Frank Seravalli of TSN, Penguins GM Jim Rutherford put the NHL on alert when he said in an end-of-season interview that, “there could be changes, big changes,” to Pittsburgh’s core.   One month after the Penguins’ sweep at the hands of the New York Islanders, Phil Kessel is most likely the first player to go if Rutherford is going to blow it up.   That’s why two-time Stanley Cup champion Kessel is No. 1 on the first TSN Trade Bait board of the spring.   “Every possibility...

Helping Holland Find Forwards for Oilers

Ken Holland needs to find the Oilers some new forwards before fall. Scorers, grinders — you name it, he needs it.  Edmonton has a long list of needs — starting with another new head coach — but overhauling the forward group ranks right up there on Holland’s to-do list. Acquiring wingers that can put the puck in the net will be one of his top priorities this summer. There are only three roster locks up front for the Oilers — the go-to guys that everybody knows: captain Connor McDavid, Le...

Penguins Playoff History With the Islanders Grows Deeper

No tarot card reader or Ouija board would have predicted the New York Islanders would sweep the Pittsburgh Penguins out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang, Phil Kessel and the rest had too much firepower and playoff experience. The Islanders were too young and lacked leadership and big time goaltending. While millennial Penguins fans lament this most recent beat down, it only adds another chapter to the a history of Penguins stinging losses to the Isles...

Pittsburgh’s Top Line Shutdown Last Night By The New York Islanders

from Jonathan Bombulie of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, For large chunks of this season, Sidney Crosby’s line did the heavy lifting for the Pittsburgh Penguins while Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel were mired in long slumps. In the playoff opener Wednesday night on Long Island, the opposite was true. Malkin and Kessel scored goals and their lines drove play at even strength. Crosby and linemates Jake Guentzel and Bryan Rust combined for three shots on goal and spent way more time i...

KESSEL COFFEE RUN. Ironwood’s ‘Latte Stormtrooper’ BMW R80 Bobber

Written by Andrew Jones Since 2012, Dutch shop Ironwood Motorcycles have pretty much dominated the classic BMW custom market in Western Europe. So much so, that their style has pretty much become shorthand for an entire genre of custom Beemers. And while many may have copied, it’s their ability to break the mould and think outside the square of their own fame that proves they’ve still got what it takes.

Predators’ Power Play: Good Enough for Cup Run?

The 2018-19 Nashville Predators are a good hockey team. That’s no surprise, they were supposed to be. They also got better at the 2019 Trade Deadline as general manager David Poile brought in Bryan Boyle, Mikael Granlund and Wayne Simmonds. But there’s one area that has been problematic for the team all season: the power play. That won’t come as a shock to Predators fans who’ve watched this team struggle on the man advantage all season.
